Window Sheet Card

Hey Guys!

Today I am sharing with you a card that was inspired by a card online. You can find a video of my card here. I think the creator is french, and her name is Lezards de Cilou. Here is the card that influenced me:

She called it a Tripod card.

Having seen other cards made with Window Sheets as the front of the card, I wanted to have another go! If you would like to see an additional card I made using Window Sheets click here. Here is what I made today:

Sorry that the lights are reflecting off the Window Sheet!

And on the inside we have the sentiment that is hidden by the birds when it is closed:

This card is so pretty in person! The colors go so well together! I love how Stampin’ Up!’s product coordinates together. When I realized this 19 years ago, I knew that I wanted to get the discount and become a Demo! What I didn’t know is that I would STILL be doing it AND loving every part of it!

Here are the specifics for this card:

Stamps: Free as a Bird, Lovely You (Brand NEW!!)
Inks: Memento Black, Old Olive, Rococo Rose, Blends: Rococo Rose, Old Olive, Soft Suede
Paper:Very Vanilla 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored @ 4 1/4″, 1 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, Whisper White 2″ x 4″ (for stamping birds, then fussy cut around, Old Olive 5 1/4″ x 4″, Window Sheet 5 1/2″ x 4 1/8″
Misc: 2020 – 2022 In Color Enamel Dots, MultiPurpose Liquid Glue, Stamping Sponges

When cutting the Ornate Flowers border, cut it on the edge of the cardstock so you can place the other edge against the Window Sheet. You will need to color the flowers by sponging over the center of the flowers using Rococo Rose, and the leaves with Old Olive, you will also want to sponge the edges of the cut out with the Old Olive, this will make it blend. To place this on the Window Sheet, use a Silicone Craft Sheet, place a puddle of Liquid Glue and pounce the sponge over the glue and holding the cut out still, pounce the back so you won’t see where you put the glue. This makes it so much prettier on the other side of the Window Sheet.

Hope you are doing well!

This elegant card has sparkle and dimension.  When I show this to people in person, they just say WOW!  Love when that happens.

Silver Slimmer paper 5 1/4″ x 4″
Flirty Flamingo 5 1/4″ x 4″ (inside), 5″ x 3 3/4″ (front)

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 Cascading Steps

YOU are in for a Treat!  Today I am sharing with you my latest Technique!  To see it done, go to this video on YouTube!

The reason I am so excited is because I have only seen this ONCE before about 15 years ago on a tv show and I had to remake the instructions according to what I SAW. There were no instructions anywhere!  So after about a week of trial and error, I remade the design!

Here is another view:

And from the top:

Well?  Do I have reason to be excited??!!

Want to be able to print out your own Cheat Sheet?  Well, I have written it down for you!  Click below to print your own!

cascading steps instructions

I have used this design for Palm Trees, Christmas Stockings, other flowers…….Can you think of a Stampin’ Up! stamp set that would work here?  I would LOVE to get more ideas!

Hope you enjoyed my latest technique!  I am always looking for new ideas, any techniques that you would love for me to make a video of?

High Tide meets Pattern Party Decorative Mask

Last time I posted I gave a little teaser and told you that I made a card  using the High Tide stamp set with the Pattern Party Decorative Mask……..Here is the card I made!

When I saw the Medallion in the mask, I thought immediately that it could be a ‘sun’…….is that weird that my mind went there?  I hope not!!  I sponged it with Crushed Curry and then went over it with Rose Red, to give it that HOT look.  🙂  High Tide is one of my favorite Stamp sets STILL!  I am not sure if or WHEN it will stop being my favorite, I guess time will tell on what Stampin’ Up! brings out next. This company always pleasantly surprises me!

For the sky and water I used Soft Sky as the base, the waves are done in Pool Party.  The lighthouse is in Dapper Denim, with the first image stamped off…….this is the image that I get so tickled with when I am done stamping…….it is just so intricate and I can’t get over that I stamped it!  Silly, I know!  I’m the one who sits in her Stamp Room by MYSELF and says how great something looks……my kids used to shake their heads and comment that I’m crazy!  Bwaahahahaha  I just get so tickled that I can make beautiful things!  Never in my life was I even a LITTLE bit creative, so when I discovered SU!, I was astonished that I could do things that would make others (including me!) think it was pretty!  My sister always had the creative gene, and after 17 years I am still tickled.  AND I get paid to do it!  What’s better than that!?

The sentiment (Love) is from Lovely Friends, BUT the outside ring is from Label Me Pretty!  I used a marker to color the outside ring then stamped the LOVE from Lovely Label.  I was so happy when I saw that it fit perfectly inside that ring.

Here are the dimensions for this card:

Dapper Denim: 8 1/2″ X 5 1/2″ scored t 4 1/4″
Gold Foil: 3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″
Whisper White: 5″ x 3 3/4″

Below are pictures of all the product I used for this card, just click on any image to be taken to my OnLine Store!  If you purchase from me, I will send you a handmade card, be sure and send me your address!
