NEW Technique: Spot On!

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a New technique that I discovered that I am calling Spot On! Have you ever wondered what, if anything you should do with your Stampin’ Spots other than take them on the road? This technique is for you! It’s really easy and really packs a punch (which is why I love it!) Want to see it?

Rub the stampin’ spots onto the Folder spritz and that’s why I called this technique Spot On!

Go see my video if you haven’t seen it yet so you can see how to make this! Every card will be different, and you can make it really bold by changing the color of the spot’s you use! This Technique I am calling Spot On! because the name fits! Take your stamping spots and rub on the side of the folder that is indented, being sure to cover the surface with two – three colors (I only used two for all my samples). I spritzed it with an Rubbing Alcohol/Champagne Mist mixture to give it sparkle and to get the color to spread.

Then I put my cardstock in the folder (I used Shimmer White because it is slightly thicker and can handle the wetness without pilling). Heat set it when you get it out (you can spritz once more to get the color to run a bit more)…..once dry, run one of the colors you used over the raised portion from the Folder to pick up the design. EAsy Peasy! If you would like to see other Techniques click here.

Here are two other ideas I used:

Technique Spot On! Using Free as a Bird and Scripty Folder 3D.

And one more:

Another Spot On Technique using Absolutely Argyle Folder & Forever Fern Stamp set.

Simple Stamping Beauty

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card that uses Simple Stamping, and Simple Stamping can be beautiful! I DID have it have layers, because I can’t do a card that doesn’t have layers! Here is another ‘Simple Stamping’ card that I have done in the past!

Here is a pic of my card:

Simple Stamping Beauty!

Simple Stamping means that you aren’t doing anything special to the card other than stamping. I added ribbon because it needed it! Another thing I added is the New In Color 2020-2022 Enamel Dots. There isn’t any Die Cuts on this card, which I hardly ever do! I hope you like it!

As always here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:

Inks:

It’s a Mystery Fold!

Hey Guys!

I’m on a roll! I’ve done 4 videos in 4 weeks! You can go to my YouTube channel to see the other videos I’ve done. To see this cards video you can click here. Looking OnLine I saw this fold card from Etsy, she was charging to make that card, and I figured I would try to figure it out on my own. And I did! What is great is that it fits into one of Stampin’ Up!’s envelopes and I made it work! After I saw this on Etsy, I saw someone else from Europe do the same cut but their cards are bigger than the United States so I’m even more proud that I figured it out by myself! Here is my card:

This is the card open. Isn’t that dog stinkin’ cute!? Love that I got the fold idea from Etsy!

And the front of the card:

Here is that Snooty Kitty! I have one of those do you?

Star Wars Birthday card-Punch Art

Hey Guys!

Ever year I make a Star Wars Themed Birthday card, you can see one here, here and here. So, after MUCH thought and stress……(I am NOT a Star War fan myself) this is the card I made this year:

And the inside:

To make this card I used only current supplies from Stampin’ Up!, I took a picture of all the dies all ready to go (except for one triangle that I had to fussy cut to get it the right way).


Funny how this goes each and every year……
I think for MONTHS trying to think which Character I can make, then it gets down to the wire. So, after a lot of research, I finally pick which one I’ll do. It’s trial and error, but it ends up a labor of love. My daughter is going to frame all of them at some point, so I want them to be worthy!
Of course, when Isaac goes to open the card, he BARELY pays attention to the card at all! He is just too excited about the $5.00 I always put inside. Then, my daughter calls him back after he runs off with the cash, and makes him look at the card! hahahaha Eventually, I figure that he will appreciate the effort taken for the cards, but for now I know that MY baby girl loves them! 🙂
Any ideas for me for NEXT year? It’s never too early to start planning!

As usual, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Wiggle Worm (for Happy Birthday)

Inks:
Memento Black
White Craft

Paper:
Basic Black 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scraps for all the pieces
Silver Foil 5 1/4″ x 4″, 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
Vellum scrap for lined piece on face (black behind it)
Whisper White scraps (I printed the sayings), 3 1/2″ x 4 3/4″

Misc:
Layering Circle Dies – 2nd from Biggest
Layering Square Dies – 4th smallest
Layering Oval Dies – 2nd from Biggest
Lakeside Dies
3/4″ circle punch
Detailed Trio Punch
Coastal Weave 3D Embossing Folder
Metallic Brads
Dimensionals
Sponges

Eiffel Tower all lit up!

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a light up card! I love these! They are so much fun! Next year, I am planning on going to see the Eiffel Tower (thank God it’s not THIS year!). I saw this card where someone made a bridge with water under it, and the Tower is in the background. I am not sure that they used Stampin’ Up! stamps, so decided to make one using Parisian Beauty. Here is my card lit up:

Not only did I use the Parisian Beauty stamp set, but I used the punch Label Me Fancy! This is what I used to make the bridge. I tried so hard to make them evenly spaced, this is as close as I could get. Also, I used Wink of Stella to highlight the water to give it that bit of sparkle!! If you lay the Smoky Slate piece of cardstock onto a grid sheet or against a ruler, make marks at these spots: 5/8″, 2″ and 3 5/16, then put the punch into these spots and only go part way up (look at picture to see how far) making the marks in the middle of the punch. This way it will make your waterway!

In the light of sharing with you the lit up version, I HAD to show you the card (a little more professional pic) when it’s NOT lit up:

Of course, I used a lot of bling by using Champagne Rhinestones, because you are not always going to have it turned on! The tree came from the die Sweet Silhouettes. Sponging the So Saffron cardstock after it was die-cut with Soft Suede and Garden Green, really makes this ‘tree’ look like the sun is hitting it in spots! Make sure you leave some yellow to give it that sun kissed look!

Furthermore, I also sponged the Eiffel Tower with Soft Suede and then ran the Memento Black pad itself over parts of the sides. This was to make it look like it was antiqued. What do you think? Did I hit it, or is it a miss? For those of you who love light up cards, we are going to be making this card next week! Let me know if you want to attend!

As always, here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps:
Parisian Beauty

Inks:
Soft Suede
Garden Green
Balmy Blue
Memento Black

Paper:
Basic Black 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, scraps

Just Breathe

Hey Guys!

Today I’m sharing with you a card that was inspired by one I saw on Pinterest (it was a rival stamp company), I thought that Stampin’ Up! Stamps would be GORgeous! I used Layered with Kindness, it is a DISTinkTive set! Do you know what that means? SU! has a patent pending for a VERY beautiful way to make stamps look realistic! LOVE them!

These leaves are stunning!

Every time I stamp with a DISTinkTive stamp set I am in awe. You’ll have to tell me if you have used them, what you think. If you want to check them out, go ahead and place an order… look for this sign:

Who doesn’t love a Palm Tree!?

Hey Guys,

First off, I want to thank you for sticking with me. I haven’t always been consistent with my blogging, but I HAVE been consistent with my classes. If you would like to do any of my classes let me know, I love to make cards and decorations and would love to have you join me!

Second, the card I am going to show you today is one that I somewhat cased (which means that I saw a card, loved it but changed it up just a little), this one was inspired by Michele Zindorf. She is very awesome but not everyone can do what she does, so I try to bring it down to what I would hope with some guidance anyone can do! Here is her card:

My card is one that fits in a regular envelope, that was my main objective……make this card, but have it fit into an envelope I have.

What I love about her card is that you really get to see the basket weave background, since I had to make mine smaller you get a hint of that!

Here is my card:

Not sure if I have told you this in the past, but my husband has a virtual tropical paradise in our yards, here in North Carolina! I grew up in SoCal, we and go to Disney World all the time and we both love how tropical it is. So, of course I naturally gravitate towards tropical stamps…..this one REALLY called to me! I hope you love how this came out as much as I do!

Here is the inside of this card:
