A Yeti with a Beer! Perfect Partners VIDEO!

I came up with this idea as I was falling asleep. I know many people who would love a Yeti with a beer!

 

 

I made a video showing how I made the small window and how I made the beer foam:

 

 

 

For the window, since I wanted it shorter than the die, I cut a piece of Early Espresso 2-1/2″ tall x 3″ wide. I wanted the window to be about 2-1/2″ tall. When you want to change the height of the window, cut your cardstock to how tall you want it. Then die cut like I show in the video above or my video of making the window into doors seen here:

 

 

 

Here’s everything I used for this fun card! Only three days left to get the Perfect Partners stuff!

A Solo Dancing Gnome

 

When I was making my short video on how to make the gnomes dance, this is the one I made. As I started making the card, I came up with so many ideas.

The bows are from the Cottage Wreath dies. The embossing folder used on the Crumb Cake is the Whimsical Woodland. The “merry merry” is fro the North Pole Mischief stamp set. I die cut it with a die from the Fabulous Frames. I added two pearls on each side, but I colored them first with the Light Shaded Spruce Blend.

This card would be cute even if the gnome didn’t dance!

Here’s my videos (the short one and longer one) on how to make them dance:

Ringed with Nature- Easy Card!

 

I made this card a few months ago, but every time I look at it, I like it more. It was pretty easy!

I first embossed the Sahara Sand paper with the embossing folder. I then cut a piece of Real Red the same size as Sahara (4-1/8 x5-3/8) and used the die cut along with the embossing folder. Gave it a little dimension.

The leaves are from the dies. I just die cut a bunch of them and slid them under the Real Red paper. I then added some “berries” with the Pearlized Enamel Effects. I love that stuff!

The sentiment is from the stamp set. I stamped with Real Red on Basic White and then die cut with the Stitched Rectangles. I then die cut another rectangle with Old Olive.

Easy card!

Perfect Partners: Neon Yeti and a Strong Yeti!

I made these two cards in about 10 minutes. I think they would be great for teenage boys! Encouragement and guitars! Cards that are easy to make and fast are IMPORTANT! Everyone has had a time where they need in a card in 5 minutes. Here’s two of them!

 

For the neon, I stamped him in Parakeet Party ink on Parakeet Party paper. For the guitar (made with the Rugged Icon dies- those are GREAT for man cards), I die cut it twice. It makes just the outline of the guitar. So for the outline, I used Basic Black. I then die cut again with Tahitian Tide paper. All the pieces that fall out, I glued inside the black. Pretty cool looking!

For the encouragement card, I again used the Rugged Icons dies. Did the same thing I did with guitar- cut it twice and fill in some of the parts. I used black and Sahara Sand.

The arrow and the saying are from the He’s the Man DSP. It comes with two sheets of die-cuts. I’ve used it on other cards. Some really cool stuff there.

Perfect Partners: An Apple Thanks

Just one week left for the Perfect Partners! I still have about 10 cards to show y’all, so check back often! If you click subscribe on the top or right, you’ll get an email when I post something. A lot of the time, the email won’t show you the video if the post has one, but you click the link on the bottom of the post to see it online. Remember my offer:

 

Ok, I have now made many cards with the Apple Harvest, and I have done red, green and yellow apples. That was one of my goals!

If you saw my post with the yellow apples, you saw that I had a frame, made with the Fabulous Frames dies, that was the beautiful Glimmer paper (in the mini). For this card, I used the negative piece from that die cut to put behind my apples, leaves and flowers. Here’s that post:

Apples for a Friend

For the apples, I used Granny Blends and then added a little bit of Crumb Cake on the cut apple. I then used the Color Lifter Blend to soften it.

For the leaves, I used So Saffron.

For the flowers, I first used the Light Blend (L900) and then used the light Petal Pink.

The sentiment is part of the Apple Harvest stamp set. I stamped with Granny ink and then die cut it with the Stylish Shapes dies.

All the dies on the card, except the square, are from the Apple Harvest dies. There are so many in that set! I’ll be sad when it’s gone!

Glimmer Ornaments! LOTS of Glimmer!

OK, taking pictures of sparkly cards is hard. I think I’ve taken about 25 of them, so this was the best one. But it still doesn’t show how glittery it is. ugh.

If you saw my Yeti card using the Picture This dies, I wanted to use the part I didn’t use for that card. Lots of glimmer! Here’s the Yeti card:

Is It Christmas, Yeti?

I put the negative piece, from the Yeti card, on Basic White. I then die cut two of the Stitched Rectangles dies to make a frame using Tahitian Tide paper. I then used the Picture This die on scrap glimmer paper- just putting enough paper under the different circles. I used the Spruced Up Outlines dies with the White glimmer (from the mini) for the tops of the ornaments.

I added a few more ornaments on the card- ones that didn’t fit inside one of the empty circles.

I stamped the sentiment from Christmas Scottie on white with Tahitian Tide ink. I die cut it with the Stylish Shapes dies.

The ribbon on the side is the really pretty Metallic Woven Ribbon in the main catalog.

How to Make Those Gnomes DANCE! Video!

 

Who doesn’t love to see gnomes dancing??

 

I saw that SU had shared this technique at a recent event. What a great idea! I’ve used it on two different cards, this one and a witch one that I’ll share in a few days. It is really so easy and fun!

Here’s my video of making this card:
