Card # 3 – Christmas Cards

Here is my favorite of all the cards!  I am posting this now because I have made a video for this ‘type’ of card….Easel Card.  The video is making this fold, but you can see a different card using this same fold!  You can watch it on my Technique Tuesday video series!

Here is my Christmas version!

This card design is based on a card that I swapped with Linda Wiencek!  Love the design, I did it a little different, I didn’t have everything she used.  This is called an Easel Card.  It is VERY sparkly in person!

If you are interested in getting my 7 page pdf with Instructions, dimensions and Color Photos of all 6  Christmas Cards, you only need to  purchase $50 from my Online Store and I will email it to you!  The supplies needed for this card are listed below, click on any picture to be taken to my Store!  Please use hostess code CGCDT6ZJ

As for the how-to to make the folds and cuts for this card, you can find an Easel Card on my YouTube channel, my pdf has all the dimensions for each panel!

Off to do some work with my hands, have some Cards to make!

Tarnished Foil Technique

Hey Guys!

It’s been a while since I was last here!  Sorry, life got a bit busy.  I had my trip to Salt Lake City Utah for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event, and WOW I had so much fun! I met up with my SU! Besties and we room together every time!

I came home and 4 days later we went to Vero Beach for a much needed break!  It was so nice to sit and read on the beach!!  I was under the umbrella and the only thing that would have totally made it better was to have a Beach Boy bring me some drinks!  hahaha

Now I am home and I jumped right back in to my ‘work’.  I put the apostrophes there because I have so much fun creating it is sometimes hard to remember that I get PAID!  Love my job, if you want to join my team, just let me know!

On to the Tarnished Foil technique, thanks to my Besties Carol and Hetty for telling me all about it!  I HAD to come home and try my hand at it!

Here are the cards I did on my YouTube video:

Aren’t they stunning?!!  This is a fun and easy technique and no two are alike!  I Love stacking my ribbons, can you see it?  I ‘colored’ my gold edged ribbon with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends so it would go with my project and stacked it with the copper ribbon!  Go check out my video for all the dimensions.

I hope if you live in the States you choose me as your demonstrator!  IF you purchase from me, I will send you one of my cards that I use for my videos!  Shop Now!

As always, the items used for this post are listed below, each picture will link you to my OnLine Store!  I DO have some SAB items for a sneak peek, can’t list them below, but the one I used is called Happy Wishes, and I KNOW you will want it as much as I did!

I’m back to my ‘work’, I am making my Christmas cards, I’ll share those with you next time!!

Technique Tuesday Cascading Steps

YOU are in for a Treat!  Today I am sharing with you my latest Technique!  To see it done, go to this video on YouTube!

The reason I am so excited is because I have only seen this ONCE before about 15 years ago on a tv show and I had to remake the instructions according to what I SAW. There were no instructions anywhere!  So after about a week of trial and error, I remade the design!

Here is another view:

And from the top:

Well?  Do I have reason to be excited??!!

Want to be able to print out your own Cheat Sheet?  Well, I have written it down for you!  Click below to print your own!

I have used this design for Palm Trees, Christmas Stockings, other flowers…….Can you think of a Stampin’ Up! stamp set that would work here?  I would LOVE to get more ideas!

Hope you enjoyed my latest technique!  I am always looking for new ideas, any techniques that you would love for me to make a video of?

Technique Tuesday Triple Flap Fold Christmas Card

I love when a project comes together! Click here for a video to see the process It took to make this beauty!  The great thing about the video is that I tell you the dimensions and supplies!

I was spending time on YouTube the other day and found this great idea from Dawn, which you can see here.  I loved the idea, but didn’t have her Halloween stamps, even though I LOVE Halloween (need to have new ideas every year for scrapbooking!).  So, I DID have the Christmas stamps from Stampin’ Up! called Father Christmas (I used EVERY stamp!, WooHoo) and Nature Sings.  These Stamp sets are PERFECT for my idea!

When do you use every stamp from a stamp set on ONE project?  I did for this one!  Not sure WHY I am proud of this, but I am.  😉

Here is the project closed:

Partially open:

And now all the way open!:

Isn’t this pretty!?  What I love is other than the front where I colored, there isn’t anything else that needs that much attention!  I DID sponge all the Vanilla pieces but I pretty much sponge everything so this wasn’t a big deal to me.

When I showed this around, I got so many Ooooooh’s and Aaaaaaaah’s!  LOVE when that happens!  Now the question: Who do I send this to?

The next question is what will be my technique for NEXT Tuesday?! Any suggestions? I have a great idea, not sure if I will go with that idea or one YOU give me!

You can click on any of the supplies listed below to be taken to my OnLine Store!

I hope you like this technique, I would love to see a ‘story’ you would like to create using this Fancy Fold!

Until next time!

Ghosting with a Twist Technique Tuesday

If you like this card, look below and see how you can have me make you one!  Go to this video to see how this card was made!

I see the ‘Ghosting’ Technique all over, and I wanted to do this with a Twist!  I made a Beach landscape card, and wanted my chair to have a shadow, or ghosting effect, BUT I wanted to be able to see the water and sand behind the chair.  The thinlit from SU!’s Seasonal Layers cuts the entire chair out, and that would leave a BIG hole in my beach scene!  :-O  Can’t have that!!  So, I die cut out 2 images of the chair, one in Crushed Curry and one in Black.  Plus, I had to die cut out the chair directly from my scene!

Once the card was made, I cut out the chair which left a BIG hole in my card, so I had to remake my background on scraps of Very Vanilla to match the colors that I already had on my card.  This is much easier than you would think…….just sponge the colors you used onto Very Vanilla and stamp the waves for the water, tape them onto the back of your card.  It’s that easy!!  Then you will still have the outline to place a black chair, and it will be flat to the card, it looks just like a shadow!

Here is the view of the entire front!

Isn’t this pretty!!?  If you want to see this card from start to finish, just visit my YouTube Page to see this awesome Ghosting with a Twist Technique!

As always the supplies are listed below, just click on ANY picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!  IF you purchase from me using this Hostess code: WNUY3EBP, I will make YOU this card and mail it to you!
