Hey Guys!

Second, you will die cut out the window & Snowflakes using the dies that comes from the Snowflake Wishes Bundle. Thirdly, you will stamp your sentiment. And Last you will put them all together to make this awesome shaker card!

Olde Tyme Christmas

Hey Guys!

Easy and Fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card to wow your friends and family! Stamping, tearing & sponging is all it takes to make this beautiful card!

Today I am sharing with you an Olde Tyme Christmas Card! This handmade card uses the NEW stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Snow Wonder. This will wow your friends and family! First, when stamped the image has a lot of hash marks and that, to me, looks like it is an Old Fashioned drawing. Second I tried to emboss it with white and see what it looked like…..not so great! The hash marks made it all bunch up and it had no definition.

As a result, I then tried it in Early Espresso and WOW that looked so good! Colored the carrot, hat and scarf with my Stampin’ Blends, using light colors. As long as I used light colors it didn’t take away from the Olde Tyme Christmas look. Since I was making it look older I tore the paper (after stamping everything else) and sponged Early Espresso on the edges!

EAsy and Fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card
Easy and fun Olde Tyme Christmas Card

Since I colored the scarf with Bashful Blue, I thought pulling in that color would be pretty on the ribbon in the corners. So, I colored the ribbon with a Bashful Blue Dark Blend, popped up the image on a piece I stamped with Buffalo Check and wrapped it on the corners. In the same vein, did you notice that I used an antique slide on the ribbon at the top?! I think that added a more Olde Tyme feel to it! To sum up, for the base I used more of the Bashful Blue to pull it all together! What do you think?

NEW Technique: Spot On!

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a New technique that I discovered that I am calling Spot On! Have you ever wondered what, if anything you should do with your Stampin’ Spots other than take them on the road? This technique is for you! It’s really easy and really packs a punch (which is why I love it!) Want to see it?

Rub the stampin’ spots onto the Folder spritz and that’s why I called this technique Spot On!

Go see my video if you haven’t seen it yet so you can see how to make this! Every card will be different, and you can make it really bold by changing the color of the spot’s you use! This Technique I am calling Spot On! because the name fits! Take your stamping spots and rub on the side of the folder that is indented, being sure to cover the surface with two – three colors (I only used two for all my samples). I spritzed it with an Rubbing Alcohol/Champagne Mist mixture to give it sparkle and to get the color to spread.

Then I put my cardstock in the folder (I used Shimmer White because it is slightly thicker and can handle the wetness without pilling). Heat set it when you get it out (you can spritz once more to get the color to run a bit more)…..once dry, run one of the colors you used over the raised portion from the Folder to pick up the design. EAsy Peasy! If you would like to see other Techniques click here.

Here are two other ideas I used:

Technique Spot On! Using Free as a Bird and Scripty Folder 3D.

And one more:

Another Spot On Technique using Absolutely Argyle Folder & Forever Fern Stamp set.

As always here are the specifics for my Main card:

Stamps:
Peaceful Moments

Inks:
Spots: Pool Party & Blushing Bride
Markers: Pool Party & Blushing Bride
Pool Party for sponging
Blend: Pool Party

Paper:
Blushing Bride 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Basic Black 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
Shimmery White 5″ x 3 3/4″, scraps for sentiment

Misc:
1/4″ Crinkled Seam Binding
Elegant Faceted Gems
Stampin’ Seal adhesive
Dimensionals
Parisian Flourish 3D folder
Spritzer, you can use Stampin’ Spritzer
Shimmer Paint: Champagne Mist
Alcohol

Below you will find a pictorial list of the supplies used, click on any of them to be taken to my OnLine Store. If you purchase from me $35 or more you will receive from me in your email a pdf with 16 tutorials for projects with pictures! I would love to be your Stampin’ Up!

Here is a pic of my card:

Simple Stamping means that you aren’t doing anything special to the card other than stamping. I added ribbon because it needed it! Another thing I added is the New In Color 2020-2022 Enamel Dots. There isn’t any Die Cuts on this card, which I hardly ever do! I hope you like it!

It’s a Mystery Fold!

Hey Guys!

I’m on a roll! I’ve done 4 videos in 4 weeks! You can go to my YouTube channel to see the other videos I’ve done. To see this cards video you can click here. Looking OnLine I saw this fold card from Etsy, she was charging to make that card, and I figured I would try to figure it out on my own. And I did! What is great is that it fits into one of Stampin’ Up!’s envelopes and I made it work! After I saw this on Etsy, I saw someone else from Europe do the same cut but their cards are bigger than the United States so I’m even more proud that I figured it out by myself! Here is my card:

This is the card open. Isn’t that dog stinkin’ cute!? Love that I got the fold idea from Etsy!

Here is that Snooty Kitty! I have one of those do you?

Sunflower Shaker Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card I made using the Jar of Flowers stamp set AND the Mason Jar Shaker Domes! I LOVE shaker cards, and this one was so fun! The stamp of the Mason Jar is so cute! These are REVERSIBLE stamps! So, you stamp the image in Pool Party to mimic a Real Mason Jar turn the stamp over and you can shade it with the same stamp!

Here is my card:

No one can resist a shaker card! You just HAVE to shake it!

The Designer Series Paper (DSP) is supposed to be a table with the brick being the wall. Do you see that? I wasn’t so sure how to make it look like a table, so this is what I came up with.

When I did the brick, I used real red cardstock and then ran the Memento Black ink over it to look more weathered and real. For the double bow ribbon I used the Forever Greenery Combo pack, the gold really sets off the gold in the DSP. And for the inside of the jar I used the Flowers for every season Gems. Really fun to to shake!

Here are the specific for this card:

Stamps:
Jar of Flowers
Comfort & Hope

Inks:
Early Espresso (for flowers)
Memento Black (for brick and Sentiment)
Pool Party (for water and for the jar)
Old Olive (for stems)
Blends: Old Olive, Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake

Paper:
Bumble Bee 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Gold Foil 5 3/8″ x 4 1/8″
Black 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2)
Real Red 5″ x 3 3/4″
DSP 1 1/4″ x 3 3/4″
Whisper White 3″ x 5″ (for flowers AND inside jar) 5″ x 3 3/4″ (for inside)

Misc:
Forever Greenery Trim (gold )
Flowers for Every Season Gems
Stampin’ Seal
Brick & Mortar 3d folder

Window Sheet Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card that was inspired by a card online. You can find a video of my card here. I think the creator is french, and her name is Lezards de Cilou. Here is the card that influenced me:

She called it a Tripod card.

Having seen other cards made with Window Sheets as the front of the card, I wanted to have another go! If you would like to see an additional card I made using Window Sheets click here. Here is what I made today:

Sorry that the lights are reflecting off the Window Sheet!

And on the inside we have the sentiment that is hidden by the birds when it is closed:

This card is so pretty in person! The colors go so well together! I love how Stampin’ Up!’s product coordinates together. When I realized this 19 years ago, I knew that I wanted to get the discount and become a Demo! What I didn’t know is that I would STILL be doing it AND loving every part of it!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps: Free as a Bird, Lovely You (Brand NEW!!)
Inks: Memento Black, Old Olive, Rococo Rose, Blends: Rococo Rose, Old Olive, Soft Suede
Paper:Very Vanilla 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored @ 4 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, Whisper White 2″ x 4″ (for stamping birds, then fussy cut around, Old Olive 5 1/4″ x 4″, Window Sheet 5 1/2″ x 4 1/8″
Misc: 2020 – 2022 In Color Enamel Dots, MultiPurpose Liquid Glue, Stamping Sponges

When cutting the Ornate Flowers border, cut it on the edge of the cardstock so you can place the other edge against the Window Sheet. You will need to color the flowers by sponging over the center of the flowers using Rococo Rose, and the leaves with Old Olive, you will also want to sponge the edges of the cut out with the Old Olive, this will make it blend. To place this on the Window Sheet, use a Silicone Craft Sheet, place a puddle of Liquid Glue and pounce the sponge over the glue and holding the cut out still, pounce the back so you won’t see where you put the glue. This makes it so much prettier on the other side of the Window Sheet.

Hope you are doing well!
