Hello there! Today’s card is an adventure/bon voyage/graduation card! The neat thing about this triple step card is that you can use them horizontal or vertical, and if you reverse the folds, you can even switch the side that the steps are on. On this card I used the Vacation Small Stamp and the Compass Small Stamp with copper embossing powder to complement the brown cardstock and Trail Blazer papers. I hope you all enjoy this nature-themed card!
Hey Everybody! I hope you enjoy this fun and funky Butterfly Inside/Out Card! This week’s bundle is AWESOME. You do not want to miss this deal. First of all, you get 3 packs of Inside/Out Cards: Butterfly, Flower, and Label. Then, you get the matching Inside/Out 4-pack (4 BIG sheets!) of Dazzles (which you can use on the Inside/Out Cards but also on pretty much any project!) And finally, 2 sheets of Double-Stick Dazzles: Fancy Butterflies and Fancy Flowers. I didn’t have much room to showcase the double-stick (I did the “Hello” on the card inside), but these are so fun to work with, and sooo versatile. If you have any glitter, metal flakes, Perfect Pearls, Metallic F/X powder, etc, these are the thing for you! Anything that sticks to it can be used, even chalk. Well, enough talking. Enjoy the video!
Hello All! Today’s card is a quick-make card. Perfect for the busy crafter. The Botanical Frames Stamp Set has 23 gorgeous floral and greeting stamps–it’s not hard to make your card beautiful with these! I colored the main focal image with Spectrum Noir pens and added some pretty peachy flowers. I hope you all enjoy! NOTE: Don’t worry if there’s no image on the bundle link–the link still works!
I hope you all enjoy this sweet and simple interactive card. I used the Label Swing Card Template to create my card out of kraft brown cardstock, then I decorated it with some neat specialty papers. Happy Crafting!
Hello! I’m super excited about today’s video tutorial because I discovered this beautiful, easy technique using micro beads! Ok, I may not have been the first person to discover it, but I sure love this look. In this week’s video I’m working with the elegant vintage-y Floral Fantasy Artful Card Kit, plus matching ribbons (from Hot Off The Press) and Splash Micro Beads from Prima. I use a special high-tack double-sided permanent adhesive sheets from Kool Tak to keep my micro beads in place. I highly recommend this adhesive! It also comes in 6-yard rolls of 1/4″ and 1/2″ widths. I thoroughly enjoyed making this card, and I hope you do, too!
Hello, all! Today’s card is a Frame Pop-Out card, which literally pops out at you when you open it! I also showcase the ever-fabulous Never-Before-Seen Dazzles, all 20 of them! It’s easy to make your card look awesome when you have these many options! I simply used a paper pack, a bit of ribbon, and two sheets of Dazzles to decorate this card. Super simple, super cute!
Hi everyone! This week’s video has double the fun with TWO cards! I hope you like them! I’m combining a couple of different items too. If you’re not familiar with the Colorists, they are booklets of very thick cardstock with high quality printed, colorable designs. Primarily for cardmaking, they can also be used in other crafts. Because of the thick cardstock weight (I think it’s 65 lb. coverstock weight), you can use watercolors on them, no problem! And, Spectrum Noir pens and Spectrum Aqua pens work great. Anything that adds color can pretty much be used. It’s like a coloring book for adults! So fun and even therapeutic!
Also, I’m using the very fun and unique 3D Bendi Cards! They come 5 die-cut cards and 5 envelopes in a pack, with instructions, card idea, and patterns included. They fold flat to fit in your envelope, so all your recipient has to do is open it and insert the tabs into their slots. Then the bendi card can stand on its own! There are a lot of fun things I can think of to go on these cards…the slopes of the flaps look like a hillside; you could do trees, snow, flowers…the possibilities are endless.
UPDATE 6/2: Here is the missing bundle link! Sorry for the wait! P.S. Copper embossing powder is included in your bundle even though I forgot to use it and show it in the video. You can use it in place of the gold!
Hello, all! Public service announcement: Father’s Day (in the US) this year is on June 21. Today’s tutorial is a treat holder in the form of a cute little fry box! Perfect for Dads, great for grads; anyone who gets this would be so glad! Ha, ha. Bet you didn’t know I was a poet… Anyway, I’m using a super cute and trendy little stamp set called Moustache & Glasses. These two shapes are both so popular, I’ve seen them printed on shirts (actually Gabriel has a moustache shirt!), bags, etc. You can make your own repeated background using the moustache, the glasses, or both! (Or how cute would it be to stamp with fabric paint onto a canvas bag!) The fry boxes come in a 2-pack and are so versatile–you can cover them with anything you want: paper, stamps, ink, sprays, ribbon, Dazzles, etc. I chose to use the Trail Blazer Scrapbooking Papers along with the fabulous Celebration Design Tool Kit #8!
AND, if you missed the Paper Wishes Live event on May 26, don’t despair! You can watch the whole 4 hours (or you can skip the breaks) right here! Tip: The “surprise” guest is me! I come in at around 3:50, in case you wanted to fast forward to that point in the video.
Happy Memorial Day (to all you fellow Americans out there)!
Hi, all! I’m back! I also just wanted to thank everyone for their more than generous comments on my last post, and thank you also for your patience and loyalty with this blog. Gabriel had a very happy birthday and I was also working hard on the NEXT Week of Webisodes, airing in June! I’m looking forward to it.
Today, I’m showing you a new artful card kit that was featured on the last Week of Webisodes: Emma’s Chalkboard Artful Card Kit. I just love this style of design: cute, shabby chic, and elegant. I also love the white writing on black chalkboard look. On this card, I made the white Chalkboard Greetings Dazzles pop even more by putting it on a black suede background (which is even blacker than chalkboard). Add some ribbon, die-cuts, Embellies, and you’re pretty much set! This card is a quick make, which is great so you’ll have time to make a bunch of other cards with this awesome artful card kit (and 5-item bundle!). Have fun, all!
