Perfect Partners! Making a Gold Background with Masks!

The masks that are on page 128 of the AC can be used in so many ways. SU has had masks for several years, and I always buy them. And never use them. So, I made a goal for myself to use these!

I had the Glimmer Speciality Paper sitting around (on page 31 of the mini catalog) and knew I could make some really fancy trees with the Trimming the Tree dies (only available this month!!).

I thought it would be cool to open a card and see those fancy trees. So, I decided that I wanted to make a gate card and use my Low Profile Velcro to keep it closed.

Here’s a link to a different size of the Low Profile Velcro I used (the size I used isn’t available now):

Velcro Low Profile

I thought of what to have on the outside of the card. Tried a few things and didn’t like it. Then I knew I could make something really metallic with the masks and gold embossing powder.

This card has lots of fancy papers on it! Pearlescent, glimmer, and embossed cardstock!

Here’s the full video of me making this card:

 

And here’s my short one!

Happier than Happy with Rays of Light!

 

Happier than Happy stamp set and matching dies are SO DANG CUTE. I think I will stamp that bear 100 times!

After making about 10 holiday cards, I decided to take a break and make this one. This card would make the recipient smile!

For this card, I used the Stamparatus to stamp the Rays of Light with So Saffron first, clean it off, then stamp again with Versamark. I then heat embossed with clear powder. Then I used a Blending Brush with Balmy Blue ink to make the sky. Because of the embossing, the ink would not go on the rays, just around them. (Blue and yellow would make a green sun!). Easy! Here’s a video I made a while back that shows how to heat emboss any color! (this was one of my first videos, so excuse the shaking and bad lighting!)

 

The grass is a die from the Palms dies. I used Granny Apple Green cardstock.

The Sending Smiles was used for the “sending’ die and the sentiment stamped and then die cut.

Here’s everything I used:

Rays of Light with Gilded Leafing! VIDEO!

I got the new stamp sets Rays of Light and Big Hooray a few weeks ago. I love them both! I’ve used both on several cards. I decided I wanted a card that showed the Rays of Light in full. Then I had an idea- make those rays really stand out!

 

Here’s my video on how I made this card!

Silver Blooms

I made this card for a friend of mine. I met her this school year, her son plays football with my youngest son. She is awesome! She takes the kids to places all the time- Scream-a-Geddon, Sunwest Park for wake boarding and knee boarding, birthday parties, etc.! If you’re not in the Tampa area- look up those things! We have some awesome things to do around here!

I made this card pretty fast. Using the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set, I used Sponge Daubers to ink it up using Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and Bermuda Bay. I stamped it on Basic White cardstock.

I die cut the matching dies with the AMAZING Silver Foil Specialty Paper (it’s on page 23 in the mini catalog). I fussy cut the leaves off. Before I did this, I actually die cut the die with Basic White cardstock and put Versamark all over it and then added silver embossing powder. It looked great, but I messed up the die cut unintentionally later. I kept that one and used it on another card- I’ll show you that in a few days.

For the sentiment, I used the stamp set Biggest Wishes. I stamped with Versamark, embossed with silver embossing powder and then die cut it with one of the Stitched So Sweetly dies.

Easy card!

Blossoms in Bloom Thank You

I showed you how I colored these blossoms on my last video. Here’s the finished card!

I stamped the sentiment from the stamp set Best Year with versamark in and then added white embossing powder and heat set.

I fussy cut the blossoms where they hung off the edges of the card.

Beautiful Butterflies!

 

 

I got the new Butterfly Bouquet collection a few days ago. I loved it but could not come up with an idea. I die cut the big die and left it on one of my tables. Two days ago, I walked into my stamp room, so the negative die paper and came up with an idea!

I was so excited after I finished my first one- it looked like really cool background paper!

Check out my video to see how easy to make these! And look at my table after making the video!  A little messy!!

Thank You from Dragonflies!

 

Dragonflies can be used for so many cards- happy ones, celebratory, sympathy, birthday, etc.

For this one- I stamped one image in Misty Moonlight and then stamped the top layer with Versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder.

The top two are from the Dandy Garden DSP- they  are the exact size of the punch!

I also used the masks on the top left and bottom right. Taped it down and used Versamark ink. I then added silver embossing powder. I have a few cards that I’ve used the masks in different ways, so I’m working on a video to show how to use those!

Thank You Dragonflies
