Make your own Dimensional Snow!

Hey Guys!!

I was making a Christmas card (Yes, I DO know that it’s March, but I had an idea!) and needed my trees to have snow on them.  I wanted to try something and it worked!  NOT sure it’s been done before, but I’ve never heard of it!

First, here’s the card:

It’s really hard to see on this picture, but the trees have touchable snow.  It’s puffy, shiny, white and sparkly!  If you want to see it made in person (along with other stamping tips) you can go see my video here!  I was super excited to see that my idea not only worked, but it was EASY! AND you probably have the supplies in your stash already!

You need to get your Fine Tip Glue Pen, and draw lines with the glue where you want your snow.  Once you have all your lines, then dip it STILL WET into White Embossing Powder, set aside for about 10-15 minutes.  You can use that time to create the box card.  Go to this blog post to see how to make the box part.   You can see the video for that on my YouTube channel here.

This Christmas card is SUPER pretty!  Even prettier than the one I made with the Magical Day and I loved that one too.

Thank you for stopping by.  Hope to see you again soon!

Magical Day Box Card

Hey Guys!

So glad you could join me for this awesome project I have for you today!

Funny that my nails match!!  Just got them done today!  This is the card in the closed position

Here it is Open, the next picture shows it from a higher angle so you can really see the ‘box’.

This was super fun!  I love the Magical Day Stamp set……I had used EVERY stamp in the set but the Magician,  and now I have used them ALL!  I colored with the Blends and also used the Magical Day Washi Tape!  This entire Suite is awesome!

I got this idea from Natalie Lapakko……..I’m a visual learner so seeing a video would have helped me learn, so I thought I could help you if you also learn by seeing!

This project takes a whole piece of 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock.  Score Horizontal @  2″, 3 3/4″, 7 1/4″ and 9″

Score Vertical @ 1 3/4″ and 6 3/4.

Follow along with the video to see where to snip and trim!  It was MUCH easier than I anticipated!

Below will be pictures of the items used to make this project.  Click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!!  If you purchase from me, I will send you one of my handmade cards!

Thanks for stopping by!  If you are new to me, I have a YouTube Channel where I TRY to do a video every Tuesday!  I would love it if you would subscribe and be alerted when my next video posts!

Technique Tuesday – Espresso cup holder for Valentines Day or for a loved one ANY day!

 

Hey Guys!

Today is Tuesday!!  Today I am going to share with you a REALLY cute project that I’m sure you have seen around……..I JUST made it after Christmas with my team members and I LOVED it!  They did a class for our team, and I got to come and be a Student!!  It was so much fun and I am TRYING to get them to do it again!  LOL

Click here to see the video!

The one we did with them was a regular coffee theme and it was stinkin’ cute!  Those little cups are darling!

For my Technique this time I wanted to do something that ANYONE would love to get!  It is so full of love I just had to share!

The Belly Band can hold a gift card behind the cup.  It has the Sentiment ‘You Fill me with Happiness’, and of course I filled the cup with Chocolate!  The sentiment comes from the SU! stamp set Jar of Love.  The DSP is Painted with Love Specialty Designer Series Paper and it has Gold Foil Accents throughout the paper!  This paper is stunning in person!  I had a hard time cutting into it…….just had to keep reminding myself that “It’s just paper”!  LOL  I’m sure I am not the ONLY one who does that!

On the video I will have all the dimensions for the project, and you can see how it was made.  IF you really want to see the glimmer and glam check out the video!  NEXT week I’ll show you a quick and easy way to make the Gift Card Holder using your own Designer Paper!!

I bought the cups/lids here.

And for all the dimensions I have written them down on my Coffee Cup that I took apart to get the exact measurements.  I’ll show you that on the video too!  But here is what I wrote down.

This includes the card holder which I will show you next Tuesday!

You can click on any supply image below to be taken to my OnLine Store!  I hope you choose me to be your demonstrator in the US!

Have a great day!

Technique Tuesday-Making a Diamond pattern background

Today is Tuesday!  That means that I have a video out today showing another Technique!  Today’s Technique is making a Diamond pattern using the Simply Scored and sponging to highlight those scores.  It came out so pretty!  Surprisingly a very easy background!  I used the Fine Tip Glue Pen on each point that intersects and then added Silver Glitter.  You can see the video here!

I also used the FREE ribbon from Sale a Bration that has THREE different ribbons!  If you need one of the catalogs, just let me know and I will get it out to you!  You can also get the new 2018 Occasions catalog!  I send out mailings once a week, so just ask!

The inside is pretty too!  I LOVE the new Stamp set from Stampin’ Up! called Magical Day!  It really brings out my inner child!

Isn’t that Dragon too cute!?  I colored the wings and the parts of the Knight with the light Smoky Slate Blends!

I hope you enjoyed my post today!  Stay tuned, I will be sharing this months cards throughout the month!

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?
