DS4J CHALLENGE # 70 – Paper Folding Embellishment

The challenge #70 this fortnight at DS4J is to use atleast one Paper Folding Embellishment  in your paper crafting project.
From this month onwards we are having it a bit different at DS4J
Each month one of the  DS4J DT member will be sponsoring the challenge.
This month's challenge is given to you by  Desire from Doing Life.
So here is my take on the challenge
I made a card using image Flamingo Pair

The image is colored with copics
The wave below is a memory box die 98438 which I got from Darlene at dutchpapercrafts
I did surf the web and looked at various techniques for paper folding techniques. Then I added subtracted  and why not - let's include multiplied and divide lol  and came up with this. The toughest was the origami flamingo. I almost crumpled it and threw it out . I gave it a day and then came back to it and rather liked how it turned out..
So let's see your creation with paper fold. Link it up at DS4J

A great news (for me ) which I want to share on my blog

 I have such a lovely bit of news to share.
As you know I get my die collections - the spellbinders from amazon but the other lovely dies like cheery lynn, marianne and joycrafts from a lovely sweet person called Darlene from
She makes such lovely video presentations of the products with the help of her awesome design team. SO inspiring and I have watched so many of them when I needed to see how the die was used.
While placing another order she asked me if I would like to be a member of her design team and of course I said YES.
I won't be designing right away as I need to recover from the surgery first but I CAN"T WAIT TO BEGIN :)

To Dad

This is Pam  from TheBugBytes and Papillon Digital Designs today on She's a SassyLady
Thanks Sheila for having me as one of your DT
Today I want to share a card I made for Father's day.
CAS style is the most difficult style for me but I tried to attempt that .

The embossing folder is spellbinder industrial
The auto stamp is Tim Holtz and the DAD are from recollections set got from Micheals
I took a silver pearlescent CS embossed and distressed it with sand paper to make the embossing pop.
A funny thing was usually when I stamp I always get some smudge here or there. And this time I wanted the ink smudges but nope it came clean as whistle and I had to add the smudges later :)
After inking with memento I embossed both the word and image with clear embossing powder.
I added some buttons and (irock) glam rocks.
Well that's my card for today.
Do share your projects with us.
Happy Crafting
