Flying Home

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!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you come back again!

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!

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!

Below will be pictures of the items used to make this project.  Click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!!  If you purchase from me, I will send you one of my handmade cards!

Thanks for stopping by!  If you are new to me, I have a YouTube Channel where I TRY to do a video every Tuesday!  I would love it if you would subscribe and be alerted when my next video posts!

Another Fun Swap using the Magical Day Stamp set from Stampin’ Up!

 

Hey Guys!

I was perusing Pinterest the other day and saw this really cute card that had the ‘wind’ from the Christmas Stamp set “Star of Light”  blowing out a candle.  Well, my mind went immediately to the Dragon in the SU! set Magical Day and how cute would it be if he was Lighting a candle!?   This is how my mind works sometimes so I went with the idea!

Here is the card:

As I’ve said before ‘I just love this dragon’!  I love how I colored him this time using Calypso Coral Blends and Cherry Cobbler Blends.  NEVER would I have put these colors together but, again, I saw it done on Pinterest.  It really makes him stand out, doesn’t it?

Here is the inside:

This Stamp set from SU! also has thinlits that cut out not only the characters, but the Banner seen above!  Waves, that I will be using soon, and lots of other goodies!!

For the flags in the front, I used the Myths & Magic Specialty Designer Series Paper.  I sponged the edges with the color that was on the DSP, and also made a banner out of the Silver Glimmer paper and the FREE Shimmer Ribbon pack from the Sale-A-Bration catalog!  This ribbon is so pretty!!  And it comes in THREE colors and sizes!  I also used Rhinestones and the Scattered Sequins Embossing folder.

The Dimensions are as follows:

Cherry Cobbler 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Daffodil Delight 5″ x 3 3/4″
Dapper Denim banner 2″ x 5″
Gray Banner 1 1/2″ x 4 1/4″
Silver Banner 1/2″ x 3 1/2″
Calypso Coral Ribbon 3 3/4″
Scrap of White for Stitched Oval
Scrap of Calypso Coral for Scalloped Oval
Whisper White 4″ x 5 1/4″ (inside)

I really hope that those who received these swaps love them as much as I do!!

The supplies used for this project are listed in pictures below, just click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!

As always!  Have a great day/weekend!

Technique Tuesday – Espresso cup holder for Valentines Day or for a loved one ANY day!

 

Hey Guys!

Today is Tuesday!!  Today I am going to share with you a REALLY cute project that I’m sure you have seen around……..I JUST made it after Christmas with my team members and I LOVED it!  They did a class for our team, and I got to come and be a Student!!  It was so much fun and I am TRYING to get them to do it again!  LOL

Click here to see the video!

The one we did with them was a regular coffee theme and it was stinkin’ cute!  Those little cups are darling!

For my Technique this time I wanted to do something that ANYONE would love to get!  It is so full of love I just had to share!

The Belly Band can hold a gift card behind the cup.  It has the Sentiment ‘You Fill me with Happiness’, and of course I filled the cup with Chocolate!  The sentiment comes from the SU! stamp set Jar of Love.  The DSP is Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and it has Gold Foil Accents throughout the paper!  This paper is stunning in person!  I had a hard time cutting into it…….just had to keep reminding myself that “It’s just paper”!  LOL  I’m sure I am not the ONLY one who does that!

On the video I will have all the dimensions for the project, and you can see how it was made.  IF you really want to see the glimmer and glam check out the video!  NEXT week I’ll show you a quick and easy way to make the Gift Card Holder using your own Designer Paper!!

I bought the cups/lids here.

And for all the dimensions I have written them down on my Coffee Cup that I took apart to get the exact measurements.  I’ll show you that on the video too!  But here is what I wrote down.

This includes the card holder which I will show you next Tuesday!

You can click on any supply image below to be taken to my OnLine Store!  I hope you choose me to be your demonstrator in the US!

Have a great day!

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!

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!

cascading steps instructions

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?
