Simple any occasion no stamp card

Hey Guys!

Today I thought I would share with you a card that is elegant and no stamping was used.  What?!  I know, what in the world am I doing NOT having stamps?  It just happened that way and I didn’t really notice until I was done.

I used the Delightfully Detailed Laser Cut Paper.  I really didn’t have any ideas on how to use it, but fell in love with it!  Here is my card:

The Leaf pattern going down the side is normally white, but I sponged it Granny Apple Green so it would pop on the card and show up on the White frame.

Here are the specifics for this card:

Paper
Blackberry Bliss 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 5 1/8″ x 3 7/8″
3 7/8″ x 2 7/8″
Whisper White 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″, 3 7/8″ x 2 7/8″, 5 1/4″ x 4

Copper Foil 3″ x 4″
Inks

Accessories

You can’t see it on the card, but I went over the Laser cut outs with Wink of Stella, it adds to the elegance of the card.

Moonlit Owl using NEW Occasions catalog!

Hey Guys!

Today I am showing you a card using the new stamp set Still Night.  It’s from the Occasions Catalog from Stampin’ Up!  I love owls, and this one called to me!  I was in bed last night and this design came to me.

This was so much fun to make!  And very easy too.  I did a video walking you through making this card, you can catch it here.

I love sponging and using the brayer.  It adds that extra oooomph!  LOL  Couldn’t think of another word that fit better!

The supplies used for this card are listed below.  Click on any pic and you will taken to OnLine Store!

I hope you like this card as much as I do!

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!
