Card # 3 – Christmas Cards

Here is my favorite of all the cards!  I am posting this now because I have made a video for this ‘type’ of card….Easel Card.  The video is making this fold, but you can see a different card using this same fold!  You can watch it on my Technique Tuesday video series!

Here is my Christmas version!

This card design is based on a card that I swapped with Linda Wiencek!  Love the design, I did it a little different, I didn’t have everything she used.  This is called an Easel Card.  It is VERY sparkly in person!

If you are interested in getting my 7 page pdf with Instructions, dimensions and Color Photos of all 6  Christmas Cards, you only need to  purchase $50 from my Online Store and I will email it to you!  The supplies needed for this card are listed below, click on any picture to be taken to my Store!  Please use hostess code CGCDT6ZJ

As for the how-to to make the folds and cuts for this card, you can find an Easel Card on my YouTube channel, my pdf has all the dimensions for each panel!

Off to do some work with my hands, have some Cards to make!

Tarnished Foil Technique

Hey Guys!

It’s been a while since I was last here!  Sorry, life got a bit busy.  I had my trip to Salt Lake City Utah for Stampin’ Up!’s OnStage event, and WOW I had so much fun! I met up with my SU! Besties and we room together every time!

I came home and 4 days later we went to Vero Beach for a much needed break!  It was so nice to sit and read on the beach!!  I was under the umbrella and the only thing that would have totally made it better was to have a Beach Boy bring me some drinks!  hahaha

Now I am home and I jumped right back in to my ‘work’.  I put the apostrophes there because I have so much fun creating it is sometimes hard to remember that I get PAID!  Love my job, if you want to join my team, just let me know!

On to the Tarnished Foil technique, thanks to my Besties Carol and Hetty for telling me all about it!  I HAD to come home and try my hand at it!

Here are the cards I did on my YouTube video:

Aren’t they stunning?!!  This is a fun and easy technique and no two are alike!  I Love stacking my ribbons, can you see it?  I ‘colored’ my gold edged ribbon with the Bronze Stampin’ Blends so it would go with my project and stacked it with the copper ribbon!  Go check out my video for all the dimensions.

I hope if you live in the States you choose me as your demonstrator!  IF you purchase from me, I will send you one of my cards that I use for my videos!  Shop Now!

As always, the items used for this post are listed below, each picture will link you to my OnLine Store!  I DO have some SAB items for a sneak peek, can’t list them below, but the one I used is called Happy Wishes, and I KNOW you will want it as much as I did!

I’m back to my ‘work’, I am making my Christmas cards, I’ll share those with you next time!!

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!

The theme this month is Gratitude!  Here is my card:

This is a FUN card!  I was inspired by BJ Peters, she used this idea but with Eastern Elegance, you can find her card here.   I was thinking of other stamp sets from Stampin’ Up! that could be used with this idea of the front flap opening to reveal a sentiment.  This is the set that I thought of!   Once you pull back the flap, here is what you see:

The inside is a simple piece of cardstock:

Christmas in July!!

Here is the start of my Christmas cards that I will be making this year!  If you receive cards from me and want to be surprised, don’t go any further!!  LOL

I am doing a class where we will make 3 each of FIVE Christmas cards, and if you prepay you get to make an extra Bonus card!  I’m hoping to get a headstart on my Christmas cards this year, how about you?!

I am going to show you today ONE of my 6 cards so far…….make sure you check back in so you can see the others!

Here is the first one:

I love cards that are weathered and antiquey……..I know that is NOT a word, but that’s the only one that came to mind!  LOL

I stamped the Music Notes on the Vanilla piece with Sahara Sand, but stamped off first so it wasn’t so dark.  I then tore the cardstock in carefully planned areas, and made it look old.  LOVE doing this, don’t you?  This card was really simple except that the ageing did tak a little time, but not as much as you would think.  I stamped the Reindeer? using Early Espresso ink, didn’t color him in at all, and I think he looks great!  I wanted some of my cards to be a little simpler since I will be making these in bulk.  I cut him out using the Stitched Framelits and then cut a mat using the Circle framelits using the scallop, cutting this out with Cherry Cobbler.  I used my Early Espresso marker to make the stitched edge look stitched!

For the Banner I used the Bunch of Banners thinlits.  Did you know that this banner thinlit cuts out BOTH the sentiment AND the border?  I hadn’t used this one yet, and was surprised that it did that, so I was able to frame the sentiment in Cherry Cobbler!

I added Linen Thread behind the Reindeer, popped up the sentiment with Dimensionals and I was done!   Easy Peasy!

Here is what the inside looks like:

Isn’t it pretty?

Below is a pictorial list of what I used to make this card, click on any picture and you will be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase anything from me online I will send you a handmade card!

Want some Blog Candy?  I have taken a few days off since giving away my last one, so I guess it’s time!!

I LOVE embossing folders and I also love Bakers Twine!  This Bakers Twine is Gray, my FAVORITE color!  Is Gray a color?

You can get this mailed directly to you if you win the drawing that I will be having in a few weeks on July 29th.  How can you win this?  Easy!  Just leave me comments here on my blog, OR on any of my Social Media places……..Twitter, Facebook or Instagram.  ALL comments count, no matter which posts you comment on!  You can spend a good amount of time visiting my older posts and commenting and they count!!  Not only will you be getting good ideas for you projects, but you will be put in my drawing each and every time you comment!  Pretty easy wouldn’t you say?

I’m off, dinner is almost ready!!  I’m very lucky, I have a husband who likes to cook and I don’t have to!!  WooHoo!
