Join me for Part 2 on December 2nd.

 

It is time to get your Sparkle on. Use our new foil snowflakes that are silver on one side and white on the other. Use your inks to change the white side to any color you would like to use to switch things up.

 

Using embossing paste and dazzling diamonds, create a beautiful snow scene. Add a beautiful background from Carols of Christmas thinlits and you have a stunning moonlit, starlight background  that would make any person feel there is joy in this world. Add a little ribbon and you have adorned your card.

Probably my favorite card is the foil frame background from the Carols of Christmas Thinlit sets.  Add that with a gold embossed Lovely as a Tree Stamp  and boughs  both top and bottom. Using a VerseMark pen and gold embossing powder,  heat set to create a golden snow fall that  adds to  our Magical Holiday Card Making.

Last but not least, the snowflake embossing folder on silver foil is enhanced with rhinestones for that extra sparkle. Using silver embossing powder for the sentiment is embellished with a silver bough . This card is all tied together with our satin and silver ribbon.

A little surprise, I am throwing in an extra project of 3 Christmas tags for whoever wants to add that project to your 4 cards.

Sign up as soon as you can. Seats will fly! Send me a personal email and be sure I confirm your reservation for AM or PM class. ( 9- noon or 11 to 2:30!)

The Stampin’ Blends are now in the online store and are available for purchase!!  You can see them all in the online store right here.

One quick note…the Stampin’ Blends Markers Collection Bundle does include a Color Lifter, Bronze Marker and an Ivory Marker.  So if you purchase the bundle, you won’t need to purchase those separately right now unless you want a second set.

I am off to Salt Lake City the home of Stampin’ Up’s! Corporate office for the 2017 On Stage, Convention. While I will have my phone, I will not have my computer, but will do my best to answer any questions while I am gone. I am very excited to see  old friends as well as new product. Of course I will share when I return.

FYI the Hostess Code is N7A4N4UY. If you need anything you can order online at  my website.

Wishing you and yours a very wonderful Thanksgiving and Holiday Season.

Thanks for stopping by!

Here are the cards for November. They are colorful using some un-traditional colors, some new and old stamp sets, embossing powders, new papers  as well as ribbons and threads.

Also in use will be beautiful acetate papers. The glare from the acetate does not do this card justice. It is elegant , easy and will make a statement for sure. In use is the Carols of Christmas Thinlits to get some beautiful shapes highlighted with gold embossing and gold glimmer paper, gold foil and beautiful white and gold ribbon. You will be proud to send this card.

The Detailed Gate Thinlit  can be  very versatile by being able to use it all year round.  How about a cemetery at Halloween? I can picture this as a spring garden gate. You can cut it in half and make your card open or you can cut it shorter to enhance your background. The wonderful music paper lends itself to a background while the 3-D wreath and ribbon is a welcoming factor.  This is a WOW card with little effort. A Picture says a thousand words.

This card on Tranquil TIde  Card stock uses the beloved Lovely as a Tree Stamp Set as well as Star of Light. the paper is embellished with silver foil and silver embossing powder. A favorite of mine , for sure.

Lastly, the beautiful foil papers collection showcases simple trees and is a beauty of a statement: Simple but Elegant.

Not enough to peak your fancy, come for Part 2 on December 3. You can actually sign up for both classes at the same time.

 

It is time to get your Sparkle on. Use our new foil snowflakes that are silver on one side and white on the other. Use your inks to change the white side to any color you would like to use to switch things up.

 

Using embossing paste and dazzling diamonds, create a beautiful snow scene. Add a beautiful background from Carols of Christmas thinlits and you have a stunning moonlit, starlight background  that would make any person feel there is joy in this world.

Prizes and special gift for bringing a new friend to me.

This month I’ve created 4 projects for you to work on.

This class is all about Sponging!
Sentiments provided can be used for all different occasions.

I’m excited to share  the 4 cards here  with you.

RSVP ASAP, but no later than August 25th! Seating is limited.
Send me an email to RSVP.

Here are a few samples of cards that use a few new sponging techniques. Why not add  warmth and dimension to your image with a sponge and ink? In addition, sponging is a great way to distress and/ or age your card stock.

Sponging can also make the card stock color richer. Different sponges create a different effect. Try as many as you like. My favorite are the sponges made by Stampin! UP!

 

 

 

Dragging your ink pad across your page enhances the sponging technique as we.. Also it is often good to use white craft ink to add lines and squiggles to a design as seen here.

 

Don’t be afraid to try all kinds of techniques your sponges can create. Add thinits and solid die cuts to make a statement.

Until then here are some SU videos on some of our new product

If you do not received a confirmation, I did not get your RSVP and you will need to contact me.

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!

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.
