Sitting Pretty

Hey Guys,

Today I am sharing you another CASE’d card (Copy and share everything), I got this idea from Nicolle Belisimo on Pinterest.  It’s almost exactly like hers!  Thanks Nicolle!

My vase is a different color, and I embossed the words in Copper.

I love the copper ribbon!

I used the Stamparatus to line the stamps up, boy does that make it nice!!

Sneak Peek Animal Outing

Hey guys!

I’m not sure that I’ve told you before, but I LOVE Giraffe!  They fascinate me.  I got to feed one by hand when I visited my daughter in MN!  NOW when I go to  visit we’ll HAVE to go feed them again!

Here is a card I made by creating a second giraffe facing the other way.

To get the image to face the other way, stamp onto the Silicone Craft Sheet and then immediately turn over and ‘stamp’ the image onto your cardstock.  This works really well, since the image doesn’t dry as fast on the mat.  Then color as usual!  Now, you have two Giraffe facing each other!

Dimensions:

Soft Sky 8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″
Daffodil Delight 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ (x2 for inside also)
Cajun Craze 5″ x 3 3/4″
Very Vanilla 5″ x 3 3/4″
Scraps of Garden Green and Very Vanilla

I embossed the Cajun Craze with the Layered Leaves Embossing folder, then ran the Versamark over the images GENTLY to have it only on the raised areas.  Then embossed with Copper embossing powder.

The Stitched framelits is a MUST for any stamper, I use it all the time!

Sneak Peek Rooted in Nature

Hey Guys!

While at OnStage, an event that demonstrators attend to learn and get product early, I saw a card that made me make this card.  I don’t know about you, but if I get an idea in my head it is very hard to wait to try and make it!  I have a class that is at the Senior Center here in Kernersville that I bring elegant cards for the participants to make, this is one of the cards that we will be making soon.

I used the background stamp set Hardwood from SU!  I stamped it with Versamark and then poured copper Embossing powder on it and heat set to make this dynamic background!  Very easy (and still fun to do even after 17 years…….I LOVE to watch the magic of embossing!) yet this is a Stunner!  The tree is from the NEW catalog from Stampin’ Up! called Rooted in Nature, that will be coming out in June 2018.

I got this set FOR FREE while at On Stage along with 4 other stamp sets!  If you want a job where you get freebies, get to play every day and meet FANTASTIC people, join my team and become a Demonstrator!

I  colored the Rhinestones using the Bronze Blends so it would all coordinate!  THAT is the reason I decided to join SU!, I don’t have to guess which colors coordinate!  Plus, I got the discount!  hahahaha

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!

Until next time!

Technique Tuesday Triple Flap Fold Christmas Card

I love when a project comes together! Click here for a video to see the process It took to make this beauty!  The great thing about the video is that I tell you the dimensions and supplies!

I was spending time on YouTube the other day and found this great idea from Dawn, which you can see here.  I loved the idea, but didn’t have her Halloween stamps, even though I LOVE Halloween (need to have new ideas every year for scrapbooking!).  So, I DID have the Christmas stamps from Stampin’ Up! called Father Christmas (I used EVERY stamp!, WooHoo) and Nature Sings.  These Stamp sets are PERFECT for my idea!

When do you use every stamp from a stamp set on ONE project?  I did for this one!  Not sure WHY I am proud of this, but I am.  😉

Here is the project closed:

Partially open:

And now all the way open!:

Isn’t this pretty!?  What I love is other than the front where I colored, there isn’t anything else that needs that much attention!  I DID sponge all the Vanilla pieces but I pretty much sponge everything so this wasn’t a big deal to me.

When I showed this around, I got so many Ooooooh’s and Aaaaaaaah’s!  LOVE when that happens!  Now the question: Who do I send this to?

The next question is what will be my technique for NEXT Tuesday?! Any suggestions? I have a great idea, not sure if I will go with that idea or one YOU give me!

You can click on any of the supplies listed below to be taken to my OnLine Store!

I hope you like this technique, I would love to see a ‘story’ you would like to create using this Fancy Fold!

Until next time!

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!
