High Tide Close Up

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card that I HAD to make!  I saw it on YouTube by Esther-Stampin Star Creations.  THIS card was so much fun to make and I LOVE Black and White cards!

The ONLY thing I changed up from Esthers’ card is I added the Baker’s Twine on the bottom.  I also think my white is smaller than the one she used, I didn’t notice it was smaller until after I cut it! So there it stayed.

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamp sets

High Tide

Paper
Whisper White Thick 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, 3 5/8″ x 4 7/8″ (x2)
black 5 1/4″ x 4″ (x2)
Inks
Memento black
Basic Gray
Accessories
Layering Circles (2nd biggest)
Dimensionals
Black Bakers Twine
Sponges

When you look at this card, it looks like it would difficult. Or time consuming.  It’s neither!  Sponging is the main effect and that is easy to do!   I absolutely fell in love with this card and when that happens I HAVE  to make it right away!  I was done for the day, put on a video on YouTube and saw this one while I ate dinner. Normally I would plan on making it the next day, but this called to me and now that I have made it……..I LOVE it!  Thank you Esther!

If you are looking for a Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, I would love it if you could choose me!  I also have a YouTube Channel, and if you check me out and like the style of cards I make, we could make a great team!

Painting with Brusho!

Hey Guys!

Today is Tuesday so that means I have a new video to offer you!!   I wanted to show how easy it is to paint with Brusho.  Brusho gives you such a vibrant color and I am now asking myself why haven’t I done this before!?

Here is the card I made:

Another great thing is that I can make my own colors!  Just mix the yellow with the blue and get a nice green…..add more of one than the other and the hue changes!  I can’t wait to see what colors I can make!

Here are the dimensions to this card:

Dapper Denim 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 3 3/4″ x 5″
Whisper White 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Gold Glimmer Paper 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″
Watercolor paper 3″ x 4″

I hope that this card encourages you to  try the Brusho!

Thank you for stopping by, I hope you continue to touch base with me!  I enjoy making handmade cards and I hope that I inspire you to do the same!

It’s a MAN card!!

Hey Guys!

If you’re wondering why my title sounds so weird it’s because I remember a cartoon that had the woman in it scream “It’s a MAN!”, in a very high voice, and she always scared that poor man!  LOL   My friend and I were reminiscing the other day about all our fun shows we watched growing up and this just popped in to my head when I was thinking of what Title I wanted.  ‘Manly’ cards are always a challenge for those of us that make handmade cards, for some reason the so-called ‘Girly Cards’ are much simpler to think up!  Hence the title!  LOL  So, now you KNOW just how crazy I am!

For this card I used the Truly Tailored Card from the Occasions 2018 Catalog from SU!  I got this idea from Tami White……I changed it up VERY LITTLE!!  Thanks Tami for your awesome MAN card!

Below you will see pictures of the items used for this card, just click on any picture and you will be sent to my OnLine Store!  IF you purchase from me, I will send you a handmade card as a Thank you!!

Dimensions for this card:

Thick Whisper White:
8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, 4″ x 4 3/8″, 5″ x 3 3/4″, 2 1/2″ sq

Night of Navy:
2 3/4″ sq, 5 1/4″ x 4″

Basic Gray:
4″ x 4″

Thank you for visiting and putting up with my Childhood memories!  I have a YouTube Channel where I add a video every Tuesday (at least I try to!!) and I would love it if you would visit and subscribe so you won’t miss my next one!

I made this one after looking at this photo i found online:

Here’s another card I made:

 

I saw a card like this online, but couldn’t find it again.  I pretty much copied it!  I did change a little in the sky, but the rest I kept.  If you happen to see this card please let me know so I can give credit.  UPDATE: Thank you for everyone that mentioned where I saw this, Kim Jolley at stampinartfully.blogspot.com is the one that I got the idea from.  Thank you Kim!!

This is also from the same person, this is where I learned HOW to make the Scenes!  Again, if you see or know who made the original, please let me know!  I did add some Glitter & Clear Epoxy Dots to make the rain look more real!

Hope you like this post.  Check back in for my other posts!

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!

NEW! Sneak Peek from the 2018 Occasions Catalog #2

Are you ready for card #2?  I am using the Petal Palette stamp set that will be coming out in January!  I love how this card came out!

The front uses the Beautiful flowers that I used the Blender Pens to color.  If you look close you can see the dots that I used that remind me of Baby’s Breath flowers, behind the flowers!  I used Smoky Slate stamped off for these.  This was fun to make and I will be doing this in class this month!

Here is the inside:

I love how this stamp has shades in the leaves and I didn’t have to do anything buy ink and stamp!  This will make a great Valentines card for one of your couple friends!  Or you can use it as a Wedding Card and color the flowers to match the colors of the Wedding!
