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:

Upside Down Witch in a Bucket!

I really wanted to make a card with a witch upside down in a cauldron. I couldn’t find any dies or stamps that worked (the Best Witches stamp set has a cauldron, but it’s too small). So, I decided I would use the Full Baskets dies!

For the background, I first used the masks (the large plaid looking one) with my Blending Brush and Granny Apple Green ink. I did it very light on the paper. I liked the way it looked, but I thought of the Glitter Washi. It was so easy to make it perfect- since I had used the masks, the lines were very even and straight! So, I just added the washi to those lines!

The boots are from the Bewitching stamp set. I fussy cut it. Colored with the Highland Heather and Pumpkin Pie Blends.

I die cut the bats from the Scary Silhouettes dies with Basic Black paper. Using my Wink Of Stella, I made them sparkly.

Ok, when I finished the card and set it down, I picked it up upside down. Whoa! It looks like a witch in a skirt! Almost like Mary Poppins! Another idea!

Pretty easy card!

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!

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!):

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.

 

Don’t forget! This offer is available now from me! Only good until the products sell out or 9/30!

Here’s my 3 favorites: Apple Harvest, Yeti Party, Birthday Piggies. And Trimming the Tree is now moving up!

And here’s a link to that post:  My Offer!

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:

First, I die cut the Storybook Gnomes DSP with the Picture This dies. As I looked at all the empty circles, I decided I wanted them to be sparkly.

So then I die cut the Tahitian Tide glitter paper with the same Picture This dies. I used all the circles to fill in the empty circles on the Gnomes DSP!

(check back soon to see what card I made with the other part of the Tahitian Tide glitter paper!)

I stamped the tree, the presents, the mountains and the bird with Sahara Sand ink. I colored them in with Blends. Then! I got to die cut them!! Because of the fabulous, while supplies last, only available until 9/30, Yeti dies!

The yeti was stamped with Balmy Blue.
