Sneak Peek!! Amazing Life

Hey Guys!

Sorry it’s been a couple weeks, ok maybe longer…… I went to Orlando to attend the Stampin’ Up! ON Stage get together that SU! Demo’s attend.  I had such a great time! It was great rooming with my ‘SU! Besties’ (my girl friends and I only meet up at SU! functions) and learning/seeing all the new things coming out in January!!  I then spent a week with my Husband in Orlando for our 30th Anniversary!  The bummer is that I got sick the day after he got there. 🙁  I am STILL sick, and it’s been a MONTH!  Hence the reason why I haven’t been posting!

The card I am sharing with you today is from a stamp (Amazing Life) that we got for FREE while at OnStage!   I came up with this all on my own!!  I LOVE making my own designs, but time allowances don’t always make it to where I can do it.

I used this stamp from the set:

Doesn’t look like much right?

Well, I stamped it along the bottom with the two swirls going down, in Soft Suede ink. Repeated it along the bottom, lining up the swirls so they touched, then flipped the stamp over and lined up the two lines that are in the middle of the stamp.  I repeated this on top of the ones I stamped along the bottom and then flipped the stamp so the swirls were on the bottom again, and started all over to make a pattern!

After making the pattern, I stamped the 3 dot stamp in Petal Pink between the stamped pattern.  Don’t you LOVE how it came out!?  I was so tickled to see the beautiful pattern that this stamp made!!  If you watch the video I made you can see how It was done, if this doesn’t make sense.  I used other stamps for other designs, so be sure and check it out!

Here are the particulars for this card:

Paper
Petal Pink 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 3/4″ x 3 7/8″, scrap

Make a Pop Up Card easy by Eyeballing it!

Hey Guys!

I am not much of a Measurer and if it takes me too long to ‘figure it out’ I tend to not want to do it!  That doesn’t mean that I WON’T do it, just that I put it off until I have plenty of time!  I keep seeing these Pop-Up Cards and I wanted to figure out an easy way to make one, that I could teach and show on a video…….
I figured out a quick and easy way to make a Pop-Up card that takes minimal measuring and hardly ANY stress!  Check out my video!

Here is the front of the card:

I absolutely LOVE this Stampin’ Up! set: Waterfront!  It really makes you feel like an artist, and you can make the scenery any way you can imagine!!  I changed the scenery inside, popped up some trees and I am thrilled with the result!

The trees fold down when the card is closed and Stand up when open!  On my video you can see just how easy this card is!

Here is the view from above:

I hope you like this card as much as I do!  The supplies are listed below, just click on any picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!

Ghosting with a Twist Technique Tuesday

If you like this card, look below and see how you can have me make you one!  Go to this video to see how this card was made!

I see the ‘Ghosting’ Technique all over, and I wanted to do this with a Twist!  I made a Beach landscape card, and wanted my chair to have a shadow, or ghosting effect, BUT I wanted to be able to see the water and sand behind the chair.  The thinlit from SU!’s Seasonal Layers cuts the entire chair out, and that would leave a BIG hole in my beach scene!  :-O  Can’t have that!!  So, I die cut out 2 images of the chair, one in Crushed Curry and one in Black.  Plus, I had to die cut out the chair directly from my scene!

Once the card was made, I cut out the chair which left a BIG hole in my card, so I had to remake my background on scraps of Very Vanilla to match the colors that I already had on my card.  This is much easier than you would think…….just sponge the colors you used onto Very Vanilla and stamp the waves for the water, tape them onto the back of your card.  It’s that easy!!  Then you will still have the outline to place a black chair, and it will be flat to the card, it looks just like a shadow!

Here is the view of the entire front!

Isn’t this pretty!!?  If you want to see this card from start to finish, just visit my YouTube Page to see this awesome Ghosting with a Twist Technique!

As always the supplies are listed below, just click on ANY picture to be taken to my OnLine Store!  IF you purchase from me using this Hostess code: WNUY3EBP, I will make YOU this card and mail it to you!

Technique Tuesday-Faux Embroidery using Painted Harvest

Want to receive this card?  Check out below how you can be in a drawing to get this beautiful card mailed to you!

Today I am sharing with you a new Technique that I kind of stumbled on!!  I’m using the NEW stamp set:  Painted Harvest #144783 which will be in the Holiday Catalog coming out in September!  You can see the video on YouTube, I have some great tips and it’s a VERY simple Z fold card!

Here is a picture of the front of the card:

Isn’t it GORGEOUS!?  I was just playing around and was astounded at how great this came out!  This is one of those times when I am sitting at my stamp table (by myself) and I start to talk and say how beautiful it is!  LOL   No-One is there, mind you……..even after 16 years of stamping I STILL get excited that I can make something this pretty!

Here it is open:

Doesn’t Berry Burst work great with this card?   And here is a close-up of the front flower that looks like embroidery:

I popped up this whole piece using the Foam Adhesive Strips since they pop up more than Dimensionals.  The video I made shows a different leaf than the one shown here, and I like it better.  I show you how to mask the flower and put the leaves behind it.  I also show you how to do the ribbon behind this image.  If you go see it, leave me a message and let me know what you think.

IF you leave me a message I will have a drawing in 2 weeks on the 28th for one of you to win this card!  Leave a message either here on my blog or on the video on Youtube.

ALL the dimensions are on the video, so if you want to recreate this go check it out!

All the supplies are listed below, click on any picture to be sent to my On-Line Store!  If you purchase from me I will be sending you a handmade card as a Thank You!

This is a SNEAK PEEK so hope you enjoyed this card as much as I do!  Keep an eye out for MORE Technique Tuesday videos!  Techniques are my favorite.  Anything that will let me use my stamp supplies more are a win win in my book!

Until next time!

Christmas in July card #2 Plus Blog Candy

I love getting a jump on things!  This month I am planning on getting a jump on Christmas Cards!  I have a class at the end of the month where we will be making 16 cards at one time!  3 each of 5 designs!  I have already shown you Two of my cards:

      

The First one uses the Embossing paste and you can find the details here.   The Second one you can find here.

The Third Christmas card (out of 6) is straight out of the catalog!  I don’t know what you guys think about the new Catalog, but I LOVE the card ideas in there!  Stampin’ Up! has stepped up most of the ideas and I love them so much I have copied them…….or as a lot of Stampers call it (CASE…..Copy, And, Share, Everything).  It’s great when you are in a bind for an idea and there it is!

Here is the card I’m sharing today!

You can find this design on page 114 in the Catalog!   Another antiquey card!  I colored the berries on the bottom, so it’s TECHNICALLY not a total CASE but I pretty much copied everything else.  Do you like it?

Inside Pic:

Out of my 6 cards, most are straightforward and very simple, but others are a ‘little’ harder.  This one has some masking (I put the stamped image that was cut out of post it over the Santa to sponge around him, so I could get it darker around the edges than i wanted him) I then sponged again, to make sure and get parts of him sponged so it looks old.  This card is something anyone could do, with some guidance.  I HAVE  to have some easier cards so we can make them in bulk, but also have some stepped up cards so we, as stampers, are happy!

Details for this card: ie measurements:

*************

Card stock:
Soft Suede 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ scored in half at 4 1/4″
Very Vanilla 4 x 4 3/4″ torn on the 4″ side (once torn it will be approximately 3 5/8″)  and 4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″ (for the part the Santa is stamped on), 4″ x 5 1/4″ for inside

Accessories:
Linen Thread wrapped around 2 x
Colored pencils, I used real red, but made it as dark as I could.

Darling Baby Card! Kylie’s International Blog hop!

Once again I am TRYING to be in the top ten for Kylie’s International Blog Hop, will you help me??  I came close last time, but would really like to get there this time!   Can you tell that the dog is fluffy and two colors!?  Read on to see how it was done!

Please vote for me by going to Kylie’s blog hop page!  To vote, you will click on the heart in the right corner of the pictures, preferably mine!!  🙂

The theme this month is Baby.  My card isn’t traditional ‘baby’ but I think it would make a GREAT Birthday card for any baby, OR on the inside it could say that you are expecting!!  That you are HAVING a baby!!

Here’s my card:

Isn’t it cute!!??  Same as last month, I had a totally different card planned, but I didn’t think it mustered!  I came home from a stamp class today and sat right down and made this one!  I love how the dog has such puffy fur!  Want to know how I did that?

That’s Vellum that I stamped the dog on, using Soft Suede (then embossed with clear), I then turned it over onto one of our stamp mats, and using the stylus from the Score Board I press in circular motions (gently at first!!) on the places for the white fur, it makes the Vellum raise up and turn white!!  Cool Right!!?? I then cut ANOTHER dog out of Soft Suede (using the thinlit of course!) and popped up the Vellum, putting the mini dimensionals (YUM!) under the pom pom balls on his feet and front!!  You can’t see them, can you!?  That’s because the Vellum is so white that you can place them behind and it disappears!  I LOVE this technique!

Can you see the clouds in the sky?!  Those are made with Stampin’ Up!’s Embossing Paste and the masks!

The little girl AND the dog are stamped, but the fox is cut out of the Designer Series Paper!  LOVE, love, love this suite!

Here’s a close up of the puffy:

The ‘fixin’s’ for this card are listed below, click on any picture and you will be taken to my Online Store!  When you order from me, you will receive a handmade card, plus a little thank you gift!  Please use the Hostess code: C62FFAR3

I love stamping, and if you live near me I would love for you to come stamp with me!  I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I have!

I also have blog candy!!

You can get in on the drawing by posting comments here on this blog (any post! or multiple posts!) or on my Facebook page and I will put your name down each and every time you comment!  But be aware…..there are some that follow me that take that comment VERY seriously!  I’ve had her comment on each and every post that I make and she also comments on my Facebook page, Twitter AND my Instagram!  She’s one serious girl!  YOU know who you are, and I appreciate you very much!  🙂

The moral of the story is if you REALLY want to win my Blog Candy comment on everything!  I put the names into a Name Generator so I have NO say on who wins!
