Sneak Peek Rooted in Nature

Hey Guys!

While at OnStage, an event that demonstrators attend to learn and get product early, I saw a card that made me make this card.  I don’t know about you, but if I get an idea in my head it is very hard to wait to try and make it!  I have a class that is at the Senior Center here in Kernersville that I bring elegant cards for the participants to make, this is one of the cards that we will be making soon.

I used the background stamp set Hardwood from SU!  I stamped it with Versamark and then poured copper Embossing powder on it and heat set to make this dynamic background!  Very easy (and still fun to do even after 17 years…….I LOVE to watch the magic of embossing!) yet this is a Stunner!  The tree is from the NEW catalog from Stampin’ Up! called Rooted in Nature, that will be coming out in June 2018.

I got this set FOR FREE while at On Stage along with 4 other stamp sets!  If you want a job where you get freebies, get to play every day and meet FANTASTIC people, join my team and become a Demonstrator!

I  colored the Rhinestones using the Bronze Blends so it would all coordinate!  THAT is the reason I decided to join SU!, I don’t have to guess which colors coordinate!  Plus, I got the discount!  hahahaha

Wild About Flowers – Get yours before it retires!

Hey Guys!

Once again, I went to Pinterest to get some ideas for my Stamp class.  I ran across a card by Sue Lehrer.  I changed the flowers and the colors, the rest is her design!  I love when I am really busy and can’t come up with ideas that I can get them from others!

Here is my card:

I really love how the Washi is used on this card.  I forget about using it and then wonder why I don’t use it more when I do!

The ribbon is a favorite of mine too!  LOVE that it is staying in the new Catalog!

Dimensions:
Basic Black 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 2 3/8″ x 4 3/8″
Whisper White 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2), 4″ x 2″

Painting with Brusho!

Hey Guys!

Today is Tuesday so that means I have a new video to offer you!!   I wanted to show how easy it is to paint with Brusho.  Brusho gives you such a vibrant color and I am now asking myself why haven’t I done this before!?

Here is the card I made:

Another great thing is that I can make my own colors!  Just mix the yellow with the blue and get a nice green…..add more of one than the other and the hue changes!  I can’t wait to see what colors I can make!

Here are the dimensions to this card:

Dapper Denim 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 3 3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Gold Glimmer Paper 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
Watercolor paper 3″ x 4″

I hope that this card encourages you to  try the Brusho!

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you continue to touch base with me!  I enjoy making handmade cards and I hope that I inspire you to do the same!

Reverse Eclipse Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am showing you a simple card that can be used for any celebratory occasion!  I used the Stamparatus from Stampin’ Up! to have the image ” celebrate” repeat.  You just line up the stamp on the cardstock at the top, ink the stamp, close the Stamparatus, stamp and then move the Stamparatus down to the next slot, and the Stamp is positioned perfectly all down the cardstock.  You can watch a video here to see what exactly the Stamparatus is!

But to see the process I did, watch this video!   The Stamparatus will be available when the new catalog comes out!  Contact me if you need a new Catalog!!

Here is a pic of my card:

I am very proud of this simple card!  If you know me, or watch my Youtube Channel you kind of know that I love cards that are a little more detailed and use a technique of some kind.  So, when I make a card that is easy to do, but still lets me have fun and do a technique, I am in HEAVEN!

The measurements for this card are:

Pool Party: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, plus scraps for the ‘YOU’
Basic Black: 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″ (x2 for the inside too), 3 1/4″ x 2  for the label
Whisper White: 3 3/4″ x 5″ (x2 for the inside too), 2 3/4″ x 1 3/4″ for the label with the ‘YOU’ cut out.

For the Black label under the white label I cut it down on both top and bottom so it lines up with the white on top and bottom.  I used the Lots of Labels Dies 4th and 5th from the outside.

Below, you will see all the supplies I used for this card.  If you click on any image you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase from me, I will send you one of my handmade cards!

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!!

Technique Tuesday Triple Flap Fold Christmas Card

I love when a project comes together! Click here for a video to see the process It took to make this beauty!  The great thing about the video is that I tell you the dimensions and supplies!

I was spending time on YouTube the other day and found this great idea from Dawn, which you can see here.  I loved the idea, but didn’t have her Halloween stamps, even though I LOVE Halloween (need to have new ideas every year for scrapbooking!).  So, I DID have the Christmas stamps from Stampin’ Up! called Father Christmas (I used EVERY stamp!, WooHoo) and Nature Sings.  These Stamp sets are PERFECT for my idea!

When do you use every stamp from a stamp set on ONE project?  I did for this one!  Not sure WHY I am proud of this, but I am.  😉

Here is the project closed:

Partially open:

And now all the way open!:

Isn’t this pretty!?  What I love is other than the front where I colored, there isn’t anything else that needs that much attention!  I DID sponge all the Vanilla pieces but I pretty much sponge everything so this wasn’t a big deal to me.

When I showed this around, I got so many Ooooooh’s and Aaaaaaaah’s!  LOVE when that happens!  Now the question: Who do I send this to?

The next question is what will be my technique for NEXT Tuesday?! Any suggestions? I have a great idea, not sure if I will go with that idea or one YOU give me!

You can click on any of the supplies listed below to be taken to my OnLine Store!

I hope you like this technique, I would love to see a ‘story’ you would like to create using this Fancy Fold!

Until next time!

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!

Winner of my Painted Harvest Faux Needlepoint!

For those of you that have been here before, I like to give things away!  I also like to step cards up since they have to met my standards ( I have to be excited about what I make).  Two weeks ago I made such a fun card that I HAD to give it away.  For those who left me a comment here on my blog or on my Video on YouTube (making this card) I figured I would have a drawing and you could get this card in the mail:

Thank you for all your comments!  This was my favorite stamp set in the Holiday Mini.  I am very happy to mail this card out to:

Kathy Beemer!!

Congrats Kathy!!  When you are able, please send me your mailing address!  This card is even prettier in person, I can’t wait for you to get it.   🙂

If you would like to see how I made this card, you can go to this YouTube Video.
