Painting with Brusho!

Hey Guys!

Today is Tuesday so that means I have a new video to offer you!!   I wanted to show how easy it is to paint with Brusho.  Brusho gives you such a vibrant color and I am now asking myself why haven’t I done this before!?

Here is the card I made:

Another great thing is that I can make my own colors!  Just mix the yellow with the blue and get a nice green…..add more of one than the other and the hue changes!  I can’t wait to see what colors I can make!

Here are the dimensions to this card:

Dapper Denim 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 3 3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Gold Glimmer Paper 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
Watercolor paper 3″ x 4″

I hope that this card encourages you to  try the Brusho!

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you continue to touch base with me!  I enjoy making handmade cards and I hope that I inspire you to do the same!

Rainbows and Unicorns!

Hey Guys!

Today I have a really fun and super cute card!  I LOVE rainbows, but who doesn’t?  I also love Unicorns!  So I put them together!  I got this idea from Kirsten Aitchenson on Pinterest.  I gave the card some black to make the image pop, but otherwise it’s all her.  Isn’t it cute?

The Rainbow took a few minutes to cut out each color, but honestly? It didn’t take as long as I thought it would.  I LOVE this card!!

TIP!!:  Cut a small piece of white cardstock that you will use to mount your rainbow on.  The dimensions are 2 3/4″ x 1″.  Place adhesive on your white piece, and start your outer colors going down almost to the bottom of the white.  This will hold your rainbow together AND let you pop it off the card with dimensionals. Your white will be covered up by the cloud!

The sparkle paper is from the Myths and Magic 6″ x 6″ glimmer paper.

Here are the dimensions for this card:

Island Indigo: 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, plus scrap for rainbow
Basic Black: 5 1/2″ x 3 5/8″, 5 1/4″ x 4″ for inside
Soft Sky: 3 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Whisper White: 5″ x 3 3/4″ inside and scrap for Unicorn
Scraps for Rainbow: Real Red, Pumpkin Pie Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Island Indigo, Perfect Plum

I colored the Rhinestones to go with the rainbow and also colored the Mane and Tail using the Blends.

I used Wink of Stella for the Unicorn.

Hope you like this as much as I do!!  Please visit my YouTube Channel to see my other creations and see how I make them.

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a handmade card I had at my class last month!

I used the Myths and Magic DSP (Designer Series Paper), which you have seen in my post here:  I LOVE this paper!  I’ve seen a LOT of Designer Paper in my 17 years of stamping, I think this IS my favorite one yet!

The dimensions for this card are:

Elegant Envy: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 3 1/4″ sq for scallop circle, scraps for the flowers
Calypso Coral: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Painted with Love DSP: 3 3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White 5 1/4″ x 4″ for inside, and 3″ x 3″ for Stitched framelit

For the flowers, I punched out a 1/2″ circle and then placed it on my Stampin’ Pierce Mat and with the NON pokey side of my paper piercer, I pushed down in the center of the circle and it made it a flower shape!  I placed a pearl in the ‘bowl’ that I made to make a matching flower to the cardstock I used!

I hope you enjoyed my project!  And that you come back again!  If you get the chance go visit my YouTube Channel and see cards/projects that take a little more instruction!   My passion is making cards/projects that challenge me, or that STILL delight me that I AM artistic!  I thought my sister got all the artistic genes in my family!  STILL tickles me when I make something pretty!

Below is everything I used to make this card.  Click on any picture and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase from me, I will send you a handmade card!

Make your own Dimensional Snow!

Hey Guys!!

I was making a Christmas card (Yes, I DO know that it’s March, but I had an idea!) and needed my trees to have snow on them.  I wanted to try something and it worked!  NOT sure it’s been done before, but I’ve never heard of it!

First, here’s the card:

It’s really hard to see on this picture, but the trees have touchable snow.  It’s puffy, shiny, white and sparkly!  If you want to see it made in person (along with other stamping tips) you can go see my video here!  I was super excited to see that my idea not only worked, but it was EASY! AND you probably have the supplies in your stash already!

You need to get your Fine Tip Glue Pen, and draw lines with the glue where you want your snow.  Once you have all your lines, then dip it STILL WET into White Embossing Powder, set aside for about 10-15 minutes.  You can use that time to create the box card.  Go to this blog post to see how to make the box part.   You can see the video for that on my YouTube channel here.

This Christmas card is SUPER pretty!  Even prettier than the one I made with the Magical Day and I loved that one too.

Below you will see all the product used for this project, click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store. I would love to be your Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator if you live in the US.

Thank you for stopping by.  Hope to see you again soon!

Reverse Eclipse Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am showing you a simple card that can be used for any celebratory occasion!  I used the Stamparatus from Stampin’ Up! to have the image ” celebrate” repeat.  You just line up the stamp on the cardstock at the top, ink the stamp, close the Stamparatus, stamp and then move the Stamparatus down to the next slot, and the Stamp is positioned perfectly all down the cardstock.  You can watch a video here to see what exactly the Stamparatus is!

But to see the process I did, watch this video!   The Stamparatus will be available when the new catalog comes out!  Contact me if you need a new Catalog!!

Here is a pic of my card:

I am very proud of this simple card!  If you know me, or watch my Youtube Channel you kind of know that I love cards that are a little more detailed and use a technique of some kind.  So, when I make a card that is easy to do, but still lets me have fun and do a technique, I am in HEAVEN!

The measurements for this card are:

Pool Party: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, plus scraps for the ‘YOU’
Basic Black: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (x2 for the inside too), 3 1/4″ x 2  for the label
Whisper White: 3 3/4″ x 5″ (x2 for the inside too), 2 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ for the label with the ‘YOU’ cut out.

For the Black label under the white label I cut it down on both top and bottom so it lines up with the white on top and bottom.  I used the Lots of Labels Dies 4th and 5th from the outside.

Below, you will see all the supplies I used for this card.  If you click on any image you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase from me, I will send you one of my handmade cards!

It’s a MAN card!!

Hey Guys!

If you’re wondering why my title sounds so weird it’s because I remember a cartoon that had the woman in it scream “It’s a MAN!”, in a very high voice, and she always scared that poor man!  LOL   My friend and I were reminiscing the other day about all our fun shows we watched growing up and this just popped in to my head when I was thinking of what Title I wanted.  ‘Manly’ cards are always a challenge for those of us that make handmade cards, for some reason the so-called ‘Girly Cards’ are much simpler to think up!  Hence the title!  LOL  So, now you KNOW just how crazy I am!

For this card I used the Truly Tailored Card from the Occasions 2018 Catalog from SU!  I got this idea from Tami White……I changed it up VERY LITTLE!!  Thanks Tami for your awesome MAN card!

Below you will see pictures of the items used for this card, just click on any picture and you will be sent to my OnLine Store!  IF you purchase from me, I will send you a handmade card as a Thank you!!

Dimensions for this card:

Thick Whisper White:
8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 4″ x 4 3/8″, 5″ x 3 3/4″, 2 1/2″ sq

Night of Navy:
2 3/4″ sq, 5 1/4″ x 4″

Basic Gray:

Magical Day Box Card

Hey Guys!

So glad you could join me for this awesome project I have for you today!

Funny that my nails match!!  Just got them done today!  This is the card in the closed position

Here it is Open, the next picture shows it from a higher angle so you can really see the ‘box’.

This was super fun!  I love the Magical Day Stamp set……I had used EVERY stamp in the set but the Magician,  and now I have used them ALL!  I colored with the Blends and also used the Magical Day Washi Tape!  This entire Suite is awesome!

I got this idea from Natalie Lapakko……..I’m a visual learner so seeing a video would have helped me learn, so I thought I could help you if you also learn by seeing!

This project takes a whole piece of 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock.  Score Horizontal @  2″, 3 3/4″, 7 1/4″ and 9″

Score Vertical @ 1 3/4″ and 6 3/4.

Follow along with the video to see where to snip and trim!  It was MUCH easier than I anticipated!
