Here are some ways to create cards using texture

Texture using mask and embossing paste

Using  our new embossing paste and 4 different masks can add a raisaed feature to your cards. You can even dye the paste to any color usig your re-inkers.

 

using molding paste for texture pink and green

 

 

 

 

This card uses an embossing folder on the background a a square cut on an angle is used for more dimension. Layering the daisey delight  flowers using the new daisy punch and using a bone folder to curl the petals is a gret way to add interest to your cards.

 

Tarnished Foil is an artsy way to use embossing powders and Stazon ink.  This technique never turns out the same for everyone so it is very unique.

 

 

 

 

 

Had to figure out how to re- purpose my cardboard . Here is an unusual way to add interest to a card by pulling off the  top prtion of cardboard caratons and scraping some of the paper away.

Texture using cardboard.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lastly, How about using some our our new heavy duty embossing folders that give great indentation to your cards. Here is the Ruffled embossing folder.

Texture using Ruffled Embossing folder

By wetting the paper a little with a spritzer can actually add additional dimension to your ability to show interest.

Hope you will be able to come to class so that you will learn these new techniques.

 

 

 

 

WhIle you are waiting for our next class it is time to be inspired by some Video from Stampin’ Up!

Mini Cup Valentines Filled With Chocolate Covered Coffee Beans!

I just love the little mini coffee cups and lids. It is so easy to turn them into the cutest favor, mini  thank you, happy day, thoughtful appreciation gifts!

Teacher gifts for valentine's Day

My three  grandchildren will be giving their teachers these chocolate covered coffee beans in these adorable little cups. Change the papers to shades of green for March and you can fill with Lucky Charms and give to your favorite Leprechaun! Top of the Morn!

 

Whoever said it wasn’t easy to be green never attended a Chicks and Chocolate Class. March will prove that using shades of green in your designs isn’t as difficult as one would imagine.

Shades of green and the Serene Scenery paper stack is one area that can help a designer dis-spell this  myth.

Take the shades of green bokeh paper in the stack.  Add some Dragon fly Dreams and you are good to go!

 

Or use the Same Dagon Fly Dreams Thinits to enhance the brick embossing folder using Shimmer White card stock Paper. Add some vellum wings and oh what a statement!

 

 

 

 

Don’t be shy, Celebrate! Have the confidence to stamp and then paper piece the Beautiful You on already done patterned paper from the Serene Scenery Paper Stack!

 

 

Last of all , using your white embossing powder to say Thank You is a great addition to the subtleties from the same stack.Hope to see you at the next class. Live away and can not make it, How about an online class for $15. This includes a kit and instructions for all 4 class cards. Just email me gigidesigns007@yahoo.com!

Thanks for stopping by.

Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlit

 

The Bloomin’ Hearts Thinlit is a perfect tool for your Valentine’s cards. Of course it  and can also  be used for other occasions as well.Bloomin' Hearts Thinlit

1. To create the heart card base, fold an 8 1/2” by 11” card stock color of choice on the Big Shot Precision Plate. Next put the Scalloped Heart from the Heart Thinlits 3 scallops
above the fold ( this gives you the card hinge ).
2. Using the Bloomin’ Heart’s Thinlit, place on the precision plate atop the Magnetic Platform . ( If using glitter papers cut the heart on the smooth white side of the paper.

3. Using the new tool brush, I was able to get all the small pieces out by a few rolls over the design. Fast and easy but lots of pieces.This tool is so helpful, I was able to cut and clean 21 hearts in less than 30 minutes.

4. If you own the Bloomin’ Heart Thinlit, it actually has 2 sized flowers to use with a glue dot on the heart cut out. to mix it up a little,  I punched out butterflies and flowers to add to your
heart.
5. Stamp a sentiment  and make it  into a banner that will go across your heart. Try not to cover up your flowers and butterfly. Tie  a bow  to add to the outside of your card. Under the bow add string of pearls and sequins with a glue dot.

6. Add additional bling to your flowers and butterfly.
7. For the inside use  the small scalloped heart from another thinlit collection and the Sweetheart Punch to layer on top. Stamp a sentiment, put on the white heart and layer
the white heart on to the pink heart.
8. Decorate your envelope.

I am so excited to share the Falling in Love Suite,  a marriage of romance and shabby chic as the Designer series Paper features bokeh patterns- a blurred look created by out of focus, clustered shapes. The embellishments are just the right finishing touches to add to your beautiful cards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Speaking of Beautiful,how about the new Beautiful You Stampset 143637? This set allows you to be very creative using our new watercolor pencils and imagination to create stunning works of art.

 

Using the So Deatiled thinlits, 142751 and the Falling In Love Designer Series Papers, 142788, Shows the beautiful possibilities in our February class cards. The Beautiful You Stamp set helps to create a vintage look for any occasion. Using Pearls, lace and the newest thinlits and doilies will truly enhance the designs you will create in class.

In two more designs I will showcase the foil paper, stitched framelits as well as the new Falling Petals Textured Impressions Embossing Folder to bring a whimsical look to a very pretty design that can be given to either gender.

 

 

 

The silver foil and background Designer Series Paper gives a very dreamy feeling to a simple card. I love  how the silver foil makes the card pop!

 

 

Lastly another pretty design will come from the Annual Catalog’s Floral Phrases Bundle 142355
