Cracked Glass Technique

Image
Technique Video #3.  Cracked Glass Technique.  I happened to find this card in my archives and thought it would be a great fall card for technique class. Below is a long video (feel free to fast forward through some of it still not sure how to do some of the editing).  My Stampin' Up! project supply list is below.  Interested in an item (or two, or three)?  Just click the links below and order online.

Shaker Frame

Image
Technique #2.  Shaker card.  This was a hit at technique club!  The window pane die from Hearth and Home stamp set Happy Scenes are a great bundle that work perfectly for this card.  The stars border punch created the "leaves" for the shaker.

European Kissing Technique

Image
It's technique time!  I'm calling technique "European Kissing".  When I think of Europeans as they greet each other, I think of when they "double kiss" (each cheek).  This technique calls just for that -- double kissing.  The present in the center is a result of all that kissing!  A plaid design was created from a diagonal pattern. Check out my video to make the card. My Stampin' Up! project supply list is below.  Interested in an item (or two, or three)?  Just click the links below and order online.

Sleigh Ride Night Houses

Image
This year's holiday catalog is filled with lots of fun and exciting products.  I love the Sleigh Ride Edgelits Dies and the Curvy Corner Trio Punch.  I had die cut the houses, but had no idea what I was going to make with it.  I just happened to have the night of navy sitting out on my desk and paired the two together.  Then I found a navy piece with the stars embossed (with the Lucky Stars Textured Embossing Folder (ON SALE THIS WEEK) ... another perfect fit.  Added some decorative corners and a little gold glimmer paper, and the result is this pretty card!  Sometimes the "unplanned"cards turn out better than the planned ones.

Thoughts & Prayers

Image
Thoughts and Prayers stamp set has been sitting on my shelf for a long time.  I decided to pull it out and this is what I came up with.  The color combination is a little odd, but it goes well together ... lost lagoon, Bermuda bay and tip top taupe.  The corners of center were punched with the triple corner punch (found in the new holiday catalog).  The Bermuda bay sequins add just a little bling. We will be making this card in an upcoming card class.  If you are interested in joining us simply email me.

Give Thanks

Image
Fall is my favorite card making time.  I just love the colors and the serenity of the season. This is a fun card.  The stamp set Thankful Forest Friends is a cute set.  I love the little bear, and wasn't sure how to use him....so this is what I came up with.  The base of the card is soft suede that is folded and trimmed 2-3/4.  I used a 2-1/2" circle for the little "dip" in the front.  The printed design is  Into the Woods Designer Series Paper.

Every Blessing

I know it's still a bit early for the Christmas cards, but not for those who like to plan ahead!  This is one of the cards we made in our Christmas card class.  It's a CASE from another demonstrator (don't have the name available), but love the way this turned out.  These colors are unusual for Christmas, but the card ended up being so striking! The scene was created by first stamping the image with Versamark and heat embossing it with black embossing powder.  Then it was sponged with Sahara Sand (bottom), So Saffron (middle) and the top with Rich Razzleberry.  The gold and base of card were die cut with the Deco Framelits and run through the Big Shot. Upcoming Christmas classes are being held the fourth Monday thru November.  Interested?  Just email me .

Coloring DSP Technique

Image
Final video for the August technique classes.  This one is so simple.  It's called coloring designer paper.  Who would have thought something so profound would be so easy.  Many people (like myself) never would have ever even considered changing the designer paper.  But this technique can be done with marker, sponges, or daubers.

Peaceful Wreath Window

Image
I'm so lovin' the new Holiday Catalog!  Here is a combination of sets and materials that I used to make this rustic card.  The birch trees were embossed using the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, then used a dauber with white ink over the top.  I also used an early espresso marker in the little grooves of the trees. Next I used the Hearth & Home Thinlits Die for the window in early espresso.  The "wallpaper" is from Timeless Elegance Designer Paper.  The wreath and bow were made using the Peaceful Wreath stamp set ... garden green ink on garden green cardstock.  Then I colored in the holly leaves with a Mint Macaron marker (so they wouldn't get so dark), and the holly berries are colored with a calypso coral marker.  The vines are done with crumb cake.  Also stamped with crumb cake was the bow.  The wreath and bow were then cut out using the Wonderful Wreath Framelits (found in the annual catalog).  The sentiment is from the White Christmas
