Christmas Card #15 Black and White Farmhouse Christmas

Hey Guys!

I love when I design a card and it turns out great!  I get so worried when I am designing on my own, I ‘think’ it turns out good, but have to ask everyone I know what they think, just to be sure!

Here is the card:

I love how this looks like a photo with a tree on the side. I used the Colorful Seasons Die to get the scalloped edge, I cut both the white and the Silver Glimmer to go behind it.  In person, this is really pretty and shiny!  Basic Gray is on the inside to offset the Silver, it is a great look!  I love how stamping the house and tree in the ‘picture’ is an easy way to use this stamp set, and just cut out the tree and your card is just about ready!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Supplies:

Stamp set: Farmhouse Christmas, Star of Light, Winter Woods
Cardstock: Thick Whisper White 4” x 11”, Whisper White 3 ½” x 3 ¾”, 3” x 3 ½”, 3 ¼” x 3” (for black and white house),
Silver Glimmer 3 3/8” x 3 3/16”, 4” x1 ½”, Basic Gray 4” x 5 3/8”
Inks: Basic Gray, Shaded Spruce, Memento Black
Misc: Big Shot, Seasonal Layers thinlits, Dimensionals, Metallic Pearls, sponges, Wink of Stella

This is one of my favorites that I designed! I hope you like it too!!

Christmas Card #15 Farmhouse Christmas

Hey Guys!

This card was made after looking at two different cards using this set on Pinterest by two different people.  I loved the idea of having snow in the backyard and the truck in the front, plus using the die as a mailbox.  I added the ‘door’ on the mailbox, which made me so tickled with myself!  LOL

 

I uses a LOT of blends, which are listed below.  If you would like the dimensions and particulars for this card here they are:

Supplies
Stamp sets:
Farmhouse Christmas Bundle, Merry Christmas to all
Cardstock: Poppy Parade 5 ½” x 8 ½”, scraps for bows, Basic Black 5 3/8” x 4 1/8”, Whisper White 5 ¼” x 4 (x2),
5 ¼” x 2 ¾” (trimmed for snow), 1 ¾” x 4 ½”, 5 ¼” x 4 for stamping house, tree, truck, Wood Textures DSP 3” x 1 ½”

This card is layered, the snow in the back only go on the bottom half of card, and if you look the fence is popped away from the base of the card.

I hope you like this card as much as I do!  We made this in my Christmas card class at the beginning of October!  Everyone loved making it, and I look forward to my other classes.

The owl in Still Night is one of my favorites.  I love the dies in the bundle because not only does it cut out the owl & branch but it also cuts out pine boughs to make the branch look great!  The set has 4 dies to cut out the boughs so you don’t spend all your time cutting one at a time!

I changed up very little from this idea off Pinterest from Nicole

NEW Technique Tuesday Making a Scene using an Embossing Folder

I love Tuesday’s!  Techniques are my favorite thing about stamping.  I get to use my Stamps in a totally different way!!  The Technique I am using today had me thinking of what I could put BEHIND trees, but still show what I needed it to show.

Here is today’s card:

I made a YouTube video showing this stamping technique.  I love Birch Trees, I also love the Birthday Delivery Stamp set by Stampin’ Up!  I got super excited about being able to use BOTH!  When you go watch the video it will show you exactly how easy this technique is to do!

Stamping directly onto an Embossing Folder isn’t something you think of normally.  Tips:  1. Stamp on the side that has the negative (dipping down) the part you want as your focal in the folder this will be the part that is raised on your card. 2.  Pick images to stamp on that you will see in the lines available that are the flat parts of the folder.  3.  Use colors that will enhance what you are stamping.  4. Use a brayer to lay down a color that will be behind the images (sky), anything you stamp over the brayered color will be at the top of the cardstock.  5. Make sure that you don’t move the folder once you put all the stamping in (I did NOT follow this rule on my video, but I fixed my mistake!)  6.  Remember that it’s ONLY PAPER, and play with it!

I won’t be able to show you here how to do this technique, it would be too confusing, so please go check out my video and see how fun and easy it is.  You will notice that you will look at stamps in a totally new way!

As always, I will have the supplies listed below, just click on any image to be taken to my OnLine Store!

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time!

Technique Tuesday! Add a 3D element to any project!

Today I am going to show you how to make a 3D element using Mod Podge!  If you would like to see this in action, go to my YouTube video where I SHOW you how!

First, you will need to pick a shape you want to transform!  I chose two, the Pansy Punch and the flower from Eastern Medallions Thinlits.  I punched out 3-4 of each image with another one from DSP.  I chose the Eastern Palace since it was so pretty.

Take your Silicone Craft Sheet, a foam brush, Mod Podge and your cut outs.  Starting with the colored images, not your one cut from the DSP, spread a thin layer of ModPodge over entire surface with your Foam brush.  Then lay another layer of the image on top of that and repeat.  You will do this 3 – 4 times ending with the one you cut out of the DSP (do not put ModPodge on top).  Then you can cut into all layers if you want to manipulate the paper more than the design allows.  Keep working at it until you are happy with the shape.  Once done, you will spread Fine Tip Glue over entire surface, set aside to dry.

When dry, put your two pieces together as shown:

This is already attached to my card, but this gives you a close-up of what it looks like when dry.

Here is a picture of the closed card:

In the video I show you how to apply the Flourish Thinlits and how to adhere it to the card!

This is a Fancy Fold card, here it is open:

If you wanted, you could attach the flower on front with a Pin, and then mail it to someone who loves to wear brooches, or use it for a headband!  I have done in the past a 3d Rose, and that was gorgeous!

Please subscribe to my YouTube channel to be informed when a New Technique video is ready!  Tuesday is the day I chose, since Technique Tuesday has a certain ring to it, don’t you think?

And don’t forget to subscribe to my blog so you won’t miss out on anything here.

TOMORROW I have the drawing for this card:

Today is your last chance to either leave me a message on here, or on my YouTube page, if you click on that link you will be taken to the video where I made this card.  You will be AMAZED how much MORE prettier this card is in person!

I am off for now, until next time!!  As always I will have the list of the supplies used (below) for the card today, just click on any of the pictures to be taken to my OnLine Store!

Pop of Paradise

Today I am sharing with you a Clean and Simple card.  I have so much trouble keeping things simple, I always want to JAZZ them up.  But this one is jazzy without adding more.  At least I think so!  You’ll have to tell me!

I LOVE the copper embossing powder, and I added some Copper thread.  The dots are done in the Copper Powder, it’s hard to see that in this picture.  AND I have found that Banners for You works well with other stamp sets!!  I used the Happy Birthday from Birthday Banners.  Since it is Photopolymer you can bend the stamp to fit the banner!!

Below my name is a list of all the supplies to make this card, just click on any picture to be sent to my OnLine Store!  If you buy from my store I will send you a handmade card!

Until next time!

Technique Tuesday-Faux Embroidery using Painted Harvest

Want to receive this card?  Check out below how you can be in a drawing to get this beautiful card mailed to you!

Today I am sharing with you a new Technique that I kind of stumbled on!!  I’m using the NEW stamp set:  Painted Harvest #144783 which will be in the Holiday Catalog coming out in September!  You can see the video on YouTube, I have some great tips and it’s a VERY simple Z fold card!

Here is a picture of the front of the card:

Isn’t it GORGEOUS!?  I was just playing around and was astounded at how great this came out!  This is one of those times when I am sitting at my stamp table (by myself) and I start to talk and say how beautiful it is!  LOL   No-One is there, mind you……..even after 16 years of stamping I STILL get excited that I can make something this pretty!

Here it is open:

Doesn’t Berry Burst work great with this card?   And here is a close-up of the front flower that looks like embroidery:

I popped up this whole piece using the Foam Adhesive Strips since they pop up more than Dimensionals.  The video I made shows a different leaf than the one shown here, and I like it better.  I show you how to mask the flower and put the leaves behind it.  I also show you how to do the ribbon behind this image.  If you go see it, leave me a message and let me know what you think.

IF you leave me a message I will have a drawing in 2 weeks on the 28th for one of you to win this card!  Leave a message either here on my blog or on the video on Youtube.

ALL the dimensions are on the video, so if you want to recreate this go check it out!

All the supplies are listed below, click on any picture to be sent to my On-Line Store!  If you purchase from me I will be sending you a handmade card as a Thank You!

This is a SNEAK PEEK so hope you enjoyed this card as much as I do!  Keep an eye out for MORE Technique Tuesday videos!  Techniques are my favorite.  Anything that will let me use my stamp supplies more are a win win in my book!

Until next time!
