When a fraction becomes a whole.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am only using part of a stamp to illustrate how to create a partial background and a simple card. Take a sponge, another stamp, or a sponge dauber to ink the background stamp. Then stamp away.

To watch how this card is created please go to https://youtu.be/EjryTqRhhLs.

Stick it backwards.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you ever tried to glue a card together and ended up getting fingerprints all over it. Instead turn the card over so the glued part is face down. Take a silicone mat and place over the back of the card. Now gently press and rub to get best adhesion. You will not have any fingerprints on your card.

Happy Crafting!

Portions of a whole.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Did you earn the Lovely Lattice Stamp Set and don’t know what to do with it? Well, use a portion of that huge stamp and not the whole thing. You can also use it as the main focal point, emboss it, stamp it, color it, etc. In this case I only used about a third of the stamp.

Shamrock Card

It’s Tutorial Thursday! As it is almost St. Paddy’s Day I figured a shamrock card would be appropriate. It also breathes new life into those heart dies you bought for Valentine’s Day. Hint, hint.

When all else fails get a hammer.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Do you remember when eyelets were all the rage? Do you remember the toolkit with the little hammer and eyelet setter with punch? Well, today my heat was starting to get fixed (yes, that broke too) and I was asked if I had a small hammer.

I presented my eyelet setter hammer as more of a joke. When he said “perfect” I snickered a bit. It was used to see if a jammed valve would open. While it didn’t budge I was a little tickled that my little hammer had been used on the roof for a stubborn valve.

You never know when or where your crafty tools will get put to use.

Hearts are for clovers.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Did you know that the Be Mine Stamps and Dies can be used to create clovers for St. Paddy’s Day? Hearts can easily be turned around to create a clover. Stay tuned tomorrow night at 7 pm on Facebook Live as I create a shamrock card for this special day.

How to create a floating card.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am going to show you how to create a floating card. Yes, floating. Since there are only four glue dots that you can see from the back it gives the appearance that the mats and sentiment are floating.

Here’s the link to the video…https://youtu.be/4w5_b_PsBsc.

Enjoy! Happy Crafting!

Paper as a funnel.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Did you know that a piece of paper can be used as a funnel? When you are using the embossing powder make sure to have a tray, coffee filter, cheap paper plate, or piece of copy paper underneath. Then you can easily create a funnel to get the powder back in that little bottle.

Happy Crafting!
