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!
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!
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:
I wanted to make my pig ride by on hill with water nearby. So, here’s what I came up with! 😂
I used lots of dies on this card. Obviously the Birthday Piggy dies (only 10 days left to get it!). I also used the Waterfall Canyon dies (again, only 10 more days) for the grass, the Basic Borders for the water, and the Gingerbread House for the hills.
I first used my Blending Brushes with Balmy Blue for the sky and Bermuda Bay for the water.
I added the Embossing paste on the water like I’ve done in many cards, but I also used the Paste for clouds. What I did was die cut two clouds from the Waves Dies, then used that a stencil with the Paste. ⬇️
These pigs are so dang cute! Here’s the video on how I make the ocean:
I wanted to make a fancy card with the apples. I colored them with Daffodil, trying to make them look like yellow apples, but they kinda look like lemons! Either way works for a friend card.
The Fabulous Frames dies are one of my favorites. I’ve used it on many cards. For this one, I used it with the Glimmer paper that’s in the mini catalog. The paper is so pretty- three colors: Vanilla, Evening Evergreen and Gold. You could make some really fancy cards with this!
After I colored the apples and leaves, I put Wink of Stella on all them. A very sparkly card!
When I look at apples, I think of teachers. So when the dies came out (only here until 9/30), I knew I wanted to make a thank you card that would be great for a teacher! And using the die from the Blossoming Happiness dies, I knew I had to make one of the backgrounds look like notebook paper!
