Christmas in July Final Card #6

Hey guys,

I’ve been sharing with you all the Christmas cards I did for my Christmas in July class……hope you have liked them so far!

Today is the Bonus Card where my guests only made 1 of this one. The reason is because I would have had to buy at LEAST 4 – 5 packages just for this one Designer paper since I had 10 people come and if they each did 3, well you do the math!

This was one of my favorites that we made.  I love plaid and the green with the blue is so pretty!  Plus the trees stamped on the front really remind me of picking out Christmas trees!  Does it you?

Here is the front of the card:

And the inside:

Isn’t this a pretty card!?

I added Wink of Stella under the trees on the front and under the one on the inside to give it the ‘snowy’ feeling.  One of the trees is popped up on the front to add dimension.

The supplies are listed below, click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!   This is the end of my Christmas cards, be sure to come back to see what I make next time!

Thank you for supporting me!

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a handmade card I had at my class last month!

I used the Myths and Magic DSP (Designer Series Paper), which you have seen in my post here:  I LOVE this paper!  I’ve seen a LOT of Designer Paper in my 17 years of stamping, I think this IS my favorite one yet!

The dimensions for this card are:

Elegant Envy: 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 3 1/4″ sq for scallop circle, scraps for the flowers
Calypso Coral: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Painted with Love DSP: 3 3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White 5 1/4″ x 4″ for inside, and 3″ x 3″ for Stitched framelit

For the flowers, I punched out a 1/2″ circle and then placed it on my Stampin’ Pierce Mat and with the NON pokey side of my paper piercer, I pushed down in the center of the circle and it made it a flower shape!  I placed a pearl in the ‘bowl’ that I made to make a matching flower to the cardstock I used!

I hope you enjoyed my project!  And that you come back again!  If you get the chance go visit my YouTube Channel and see cards/projects that take a little more instruction!   My passion is making cards/projects that challenge me, or that STILL delight me that I AM artistic!  I thought my sister got all the artistic genes in my family!  STILL tickles me when I make something pretty!

Below is everything I used to make this card.  Click on any picture and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase from me, I will send you a handmade card!

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you come back again!

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!!

As always!  Have a great day/weekend!

Technique Tuesday Cascading Steps

YOU are in for a Treat!  Today I am sharing with you my latest Technique!  To see it done, go to this video on YouTube!

The reason I am so excited is because I have only seen this ONCE before about 15 years ago on a tv show and I had to remake the instructions according to what I SAW. There were no instructions anywhere!  So after about a week of trial and error, I remade the design!

Here is another view:

And from the top:

Well?  Do I have reason to be excited??!!

Want to be able to print out your own Cheat Sheet?  Well, I have written it down for you!  Click below to print your own!

cascading steps instructions

I have used this design for Palm Trees, Christmas Stockings, other flowers…….Can you think of a Stampin’ Up! stamp set that would work here?  I would LOVE to get more ideas!

Hope you enjoyed my latest technique!  I am always looking for new ideas, any techniques that you would love for me to make a video of?

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!
