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!

Today I am sharing a NEW stamp set due out in June from SU!, called Colorful Seasons! I also used the Seasonal Layers Thinlits with it!
Here is what I made:
I want to be sitting in that chair drinking some tea and watching the water go by! Don’t you? To make this card look like it was in a frame, I made my own frame out of Soft Sky cardstock from Stampin’ Up!
I also used the stamp set Lovely as a Tree to give the scene some dimension! I had this card in my head since Friday and I just HAD to try and see if I could get it to come out of my head onto card stock and look just as pretty! I think I did, what do you think?
Here is a closeup of the flowers in the tree:
I cut out the stamped images using the Thinlit and then with the Berry Blast inked flower I added some of SU!’s Fine Tip Glue so it would make it look puffy and shiny! Love these new Colors! For the light pink I used the NEW In Color Powder Pink!
Here is a side view of the card so you can see how I made it look framed:
All of the flowers and the branches come off the framed Soft Sky piece of card stock! I DID add pieces of the Foam Adhesive Strips onto the back of not only the Soft Sky but also each flower, so they wouldn’t get squished down with mailing. I wanted more space than what the Dimensionals would give me so that’s why I used it.
That adirondack (spelling?) chair is so stinkin’ cute! Right? Do you see the glass of ‘tea’ I have sitting there?
Here’s the inside of the card:
