Donkey Fancy Fold

Hey Guys!

Yesterday I posted a Live YouTube video doing a Fancy Fold using the Darling Donkey stamp set! You can get this set FREE with a $50 purchase! Love, Love, Love this set!! I have been using it a lot ’cause I love it so much! If you missed my last Live you can catch it here! Also, I did a Blog post and that can be found here!

Free Donkey set Fancy Fold!

Of course I did a SECOND card for my Mini Class! And I also used the Free Donkey set!

Free Donkey stamp set on Memories & More gift card

First off, I wanted to tell you that I also used, along with the Donkey, the dies from the Bundle Ride the Range. I will be using this bundle for my next YouTube Live on Thursday January 14th! I hope you can join me. Also, I used some Free Designer Series Paper that comes in the Sale-a-Bration catalog as a bundle itself called Berry Blessings Stamp set + Berry Delightful Stamp set.

Secondly, as usual I am providing all the details needed to make BOTH projects:

  • Stamp sets:
  • Darling Donkeys
  • Many Messages
  • Inks:
  • Memento Black
  • Garden Green
  • Granny Apple Green
  • Blends:
  • Soft Suede
  • Smoky Slate
  • Color Lifter
  • Paper:
  • Basic Black: 12″ x 5 1/2″ (base), 5 1/2″ x 2 18″ (for panels) For Base you will lay it on your cutter/trimmer portrait and place the edge along the 3/4″ line and cut from the 1″ to 5″, pick up cutter and cut from 7″ to 11″, repeat for other side. Then place on trimmer Landscape and you will SCORE only on the outside edge (between the cut and edge), score on 1″, 5″, 7″ & 11″. Keep in Landscape and score ALL THE WAY across on 2″, 4″ 8″ & 10″. You will fold them on the outside edges mountain, valley, mountain valley (this is the same on both sides working towards the middle) Do both top and bottom. Inside flap gets folded mountain, valley, valley, mountain.
  • Granny Apple Green: 3 7/8″ sq. (back panel), 8″ x 3 7/8″ for middle scene, 5/8″ x 7/8″ (x8) for bottom and top small edges, 4 1/8″ x 3 1/8″ (for gift card)
  • Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper: cut 4″ x 5 3/8″ (turn and cut @ 2″ in half so they will line up), 4″ x 5 3/8″ for front panels when card is closed. 5/8″ x 1 7/8″ for adding to the tip and bottom small panels. And 4 1/4″ x 2″ for envelope flap
  • Memories & More Cards & Envelopes: I used a gift card/Envelope for small Donkey card.
  • White: 4″ x 3″ inside the Gift card
  • Misc:
  • Open Range Dies
  • Many Messages Dies
  • Layering Circle Dies
  • Stitched Shapes Dies (for sentiment donkey is kicking)
  • Holiday Rhinestones
  • Liquid Glue
  • Paper Trimmer

As you already know if you follow me and my blog, all the supplies will be listed below, click on any of the pictures and you will be taken to my OnLine Store! For any purchase of $35 or more you will receive from me the class packet for the class I am detailing today, which will include all the cardstock, die cuts (not the sentiments since that is not allowed per SU!) but I can send you the one die cut for the sentiment that the donkey is kicking since that is stamped with the stamp set and not the Many Messages. Also, you will get the Rhinestones and I will pre cut/score for the main card and die cut the circle for the gift card! The one thing I can not do is stamp anything.

BUT the great thing is it’s Sale-a-Bration now and you can get MORE than you would normally! Spend $50 and you can pick out that CUTE Darling Donkey set for FREE! This is while supplies last, so don’t wait! Furthermore, you will get the 16 project ideas in a PDF that has step by step instructions and pictures….hint, my Home decor item is what I made!! So you will have the measurements for that too!

Thank you for all your support! I so appreciate you joining me on my Live classes and for those who can’t watch live I appreciate you watching it later!

If you are in need of a catalog, let me know and I will get one right out to you!

Love ya!

Seamless Blending of colors that draw your eye

Hey Guys!

Oh my Gosh you guys I LOVE how this card came out! Especially since I sent them out to my direct Team members, they loved them and wanted me to make a video so they could learn how to make it! Namely, how to Seamlessly blend the colors to draw your eye to the center. Subsequently you can find the video here. As you will see in the video it’s pretty simple if you follow one rule: Start OFF your paper first! It also helps if you rub either your sponge or brush, a little after inking up on a scratch paper before touching your project. First off, take a look at my card, can you see that I have 2 different ink colors PLUS the color of the cardstock?

See how you can blend colors to create a scene that draws your eye to the subject, seamlessly!?

To start with I began with a piece of Seaside Spray cardstock, I then sponged with a make-up brush Pacific Point around the edges leaving the middle un-inked. Second, I came in on top of the Pacific Point and went over the cardstock with Night of Navy, not quite going as far as I did with the Pacific Point. Thirdly, I stamped the tree from Life Is Beautiful in the center using Soft Suede ink. Lastly I sponged the sides with Night of Navy to make it really dark on the edges and fade to the light color in the middle. Can you see how seamless the blending is and how it really draws your eye in towards the tree in the center? Now, I DID emboss the snowflakes before I sponged the edges but it doesn’t matter if you do the sponging first.

As always here are the specifics for my card:

  • Stamps: Life is Beautiful
  • Inks: Night of Navy, Pacific Point, Soft Suede, Versamark
  • Paper: Night of Navy 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ (scored @ 4 1/4″), Whisper White 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (x2) & 2″ x 3 3/4″, Seaside Spray 5″ x 3 3/8″
  • Misc: Elegant Faceted Gems, Paper Trimmer, Take your Pick tool, stamping sponges & make-up brushes

For the most part EVERYTHING listed above, excluding the make-up brushes, can be found on my OnLine Store. As a result of you ordering $35 or more from my Store you will receive from me SIXTEEN project designs with step by step instructions WITH pictures, in a pdf! Finally, you can click on any of the supplies in picture form below to be taken to my site so you can Shop with me!

Incidentally, I have another sponged scene that I did in the past, but for that one I only used sponges, you can see it here. Therefore, sponging doesn’t HAVE to be done using the make-up brushes, it makes it easier, but sponging can get the same result.

Lastly, I hope you know how much you mean to me! Just the fact that you come here and read what I wrote and watch my video means a lot to me. In brief, please come back again, and leave comments even if it’s to say you enjoyed my post.

You Can Emboss with that?!

Hey Guys!

Did you know that you can emboss with water?! What!? I didn’t think it was possible, but I accidentally dripped water on a project I was Gold embossing, as I poured the powder, the water took it too and it embossed along with the Versamark!

So, of course I HAD to try it with JUST water, and you guessed it……it embossed! You can see the video of this card here. Here is a picture of my project:

The Gold spots are where I embossed with WATER!
The inside of my Water embossed card!

To get the ‘silver’ look on the background, I used a Sponge Brayer and the Frost White Shimmer Paint and applied it to the Birch Background stamp from Stampin’ Up! On black the ‘white’ looks more silver, therefore this card has both Silver & Gold! Every time I say that, I want to break into song singing “Silver & Gold, Silver & Gold”! I ‘think’ it’s from Rudolph the cartoon, do you know?

I also embossed the tag with Gold and used the Banners Pick a Punch to get the tag perfect! For the Stamp set, I used the Beautiful World Bundle. LOVE this set!

If you would like to see another embossing technique you can check it out here!

As always, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Beautiful World Bundle
Birch

Inks:
Versamark
Misty Moonlight
Blends: Misty Moonlight (light)

Paper:
Misty Moonlight 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scrap for behind the map

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
Dimensionals
Stitched So Sweetly Dies
Mason Jar Shaker Domes

Gang’s All Meer Double Slider Easel Card

Hey Guys,

I’m sure that you have seen around the Double Slider Easel Cards, I saw them too, and tried my hand at it! Using The Gang’s All Meer Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! was a no brainer for me. They are so stinkin’ cute! Plus, the sentiment says “Happy Birthday to a STAND-UP friend”, thought it would be perfect to have a stand up card! LOL

Also I used the SU! set Mountain Air, because I thought they would make a great backdrop for those adorable MeerKats! The Belly band is stamped with the cactus and colored with Blends. I tried so hard to find a fitting Designer Series Paper (DSP) that would fit with these cuties, but alas I couldn’t! So, what is a crafter to do? Make their own DSP! 🙂

Here is my card, you’ll see a few pics since I want to show you all the angles:

This can open fuller, the sentiment is on the pull out. Can you see that this is open on it’s own?
sideways view
Inside

Cute right? I like it, depending on what everyone says at my classes is whether or not we make this in a class. It’s a little over the top, meaning it takes some time to get all the pieces together and put in the right place. BUT, it was super fun once I got the gist of it! Thanks go to Frenchie for her video! I may make a video if you would like to see it, just let me know!

As usual, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
The Gang’s All Meer
Mountain Air

Inks:
Smoky Slate (mountains)
Old Olive (trees and cactus/lizard)
Early Espresso (meerkats)
Soft Suede (behind Meerkats and cactus on belly band)
Balmy Blue (sky)
Blends: Crumb Cake combo, Old Olive light, Mango Melody combo

Paper:
Whisper White thick 4 1/4″ x 11″
Whisper White 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, 3″ x 4″, 1 1/2″ x 9 1/2″ for banner & for Extra banner if you make a full card: 1″ x 9 1/2″

Balmy Blue 4″ x 5 1/4″
