Perfect Partners: Waterfall with Mountains!

I showed this card in my video about the Perfect Partners. Don’t forget my really good deal!

 

This card was fun to make, but it took a little bit of time.

The Waterfall dies are awesome- there is a ton! I die cut everything on this card.

I wanted to make mountains behind the waterfall and the Mountain Air is perfect for that!

Palm Trees for Christmas!

 

 

You may have seen the video of me making a background that was a sunset and an ocean. I showed this card in that video. I have made other cards that have palm trees with “lights” on them. Reminds me of one of my favorite commercials- The Corona beer one around Christmas time.

Here’s the video of me making the background (there’s two- one very quick and one longer):

 

 

 

This card just used one kind of paper- Basic White! I don’t think I’ve ever done that before!

The palms from the Palms Dies were die cut and one flipped over- so they would lean towards each other. I colored them with Soft Suede and Granny Apple Green.

For the rhinestones, I used the red ones and the basic ones. For the basic ones, I colored them with the Shaded Spruce Dark Blend.

The sentiment is from Sunkissed and die cut with the Stylish Shapes dies.

The birds are from the Waves dies.

Love these types of cards! (as you can probably tell since I’ve made so many!)

Perfect Partners: Pigs in Love!

I do make some reverse stamping and die cutting a few times. For this one, I just thought it would so cute if they were facing each other.

The first thing I did was make the background with Blending Brushes and Balmy Blue and Granny Apple Green inks.

The tree between them is from the Happy Hedgehogs stamp set. I colored with Blends.

I used one of the sentiments from the Christmas Scottie stamp set. Like I said, it looks like they’re in love!

Here’s my quick video on how to reverse stamp:

 

The cute little bird die in the piggy dies- I wanted to make it look like the birds were flying the banner.

The background paper is the Kraft Paper. I embossed it with the Fern Embossing Folder.

Perfect Partners: Apple Harvest- How to Make Paper Look Like Notebook Paper! Video

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!

Here’s my video on how I made the notebook paper:

Happy Halloween from Two Witch Pumpkins

 

 

Every Halloween season, I always see lots of pumpkins with witch hats. So, I decided to make a card like that!

 

The background was made in my video Watercolor Techniques #1 seen here (it starts around 13:58):

 

For the pumpkins, I stamped with Pumpkin Pie on Pumpkin Pie paper. Die cut. The eyes are made with the negative pieces from the fence die in the Barn Dies- as is one of the noses. The star is from the Witch Hat builder punch. The smiles are from the Scalloped Contours dies.

Their hats are from the Bewitching Bundles. Stamped with Gorgeous Grape and Fresh Freesia.

On the ribbon, I colored the white part with a Highland Heather Blend.

For the bottom, the swirly dies are from the Rustic Pumpkin dies. I used the white glitter paper.

For the sign, I stamped the sentiment (from the Scary Cute stamp set) with Gorgeous Grape. I die cut with the banner die in the Scary Silhouettes dies. I then embossing with the Timber embossing folder. I cut a thin strip for the bottom and embossed that, too.

Watching the Sunset on the Beach!

 

 

You might have seen this card on my last card and video. I made this card first, and then my husband suggested a Christmas tree on the beach! We are in Florida- it happens! Here’s a link to that:

Christmas Tree on the Beach

After I saw this picture from the Ritz Carlton in Naples, Florida, I wanted to make a card that looked like that. I’ve stayed at that Ritz, it is absolutely one of the prettiest places I’ve ever been. And there are great restaurants! The Sunkissed stamp set was used for the chairs and umbrella. I fussy cut it.

 

Here’s the video on how I made the ocean (this is the one with Beach Boys song!):

 

And here’s a longer one:

 

 

 

For the reverse pelicans, here’s my short video:

Perfect Partners! Trimming the Tree- By the Ocean!

I hadn’t bought the Trimming the Tree stamp set until the Perfect Partners thing came around. I love it!!

For this card, I wanted the scene to look like Florida Christmas! So, besides Trimming the Tree, I decided to use Waves of Inspiration, Friends like Seashells, and the wonderful sentiment from Sunkissed. It’s perfect!

For the background, I used Polished Pink, Mango Melody, Pacific Point, and Crumb cake. I then used the Embossing Paste to make those ripples/waves in the ocean part. Here’s short videos (one landscape, one portrait) on how I did that (the portrait one you have to click on- you’ll love the music I used!)You’ll see some other cards in the videos- I’ll post those soon!:

 

 

 

 

I stamped the pelican from Waves of Inspiration with Sahara Sand and used the water painter to pull the color then die cut.

I reversed stamped and die cut another pelican. Here’s a quick video on how I did that:

 

 

I stamped the tree with Parakeet Party and Soft Sea Foam. Then die cut.

I stamped the starfish with Calypso Coral and then used a water painter to pull the color in the middle. Then die cut.

I stamped the shells with Sahara Sand and die cut.

The ribbon across the tree is from the Trimming Trees die cuts.

I added three small strips of Soft Suede to the bottom (I inked them up a bit with Soft Suede).

The sentiment from Sunkissed is so dang perfect! I stamped with Soft Suede, then using my blending brush, I put some Soft Suede on there. I die cut it with Stitched Rectangles.

This card has so many wonderful dies on it ( Because of the fabulous, while supplies last, only available until 9/30, Apple Harvest dies!) Everything on this card, except for the circle, comes from those dies:

The apples (obviously)

The flowers

The branches

The scallop edge

First, I stamped the apples with Memento, die cut them, and then colored them with Real Red and Old Olive Blends. (I die cut everything before I color it!)

I die cut the branches with Soft Suede.

I die cut the flowers with Basic White. I then used my Blender Pen with Soft Suede ink to give them a little color.

The stamp from In the Moment seemed perfect for this card! I die cut it with the Stylish Shapes dies.

For the background, I first used my Blending Brush with Balmy Blue to give it a light blue. Using the Pearlized Enamel, I made the lines with the White and the Red color. Here’s my video on how I did that same technique on another card (except on this one, I did not color the lines with Blends):

And here’s a short video on how I did that:
