Add folds.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Do you feel like your card is flat all the time? Then add some folds. Instead of the middle being flat and stamped on add some folds. Score evenly and create an accordion pattern so you can add some depth. Add a ribbon instead of an envelope to keep it closed.

Happy Crafting!

Candy canes from circles.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today is the day that I show you how to create a candy cane from just circles. I chose scalloped ones but plain ones work too. Cut about a dozen each of the red and white circles and start gluing.

Where circles become Christmas.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Today we are using circles to create a Christmas card. Yes, Christmas. Did you know that circles, squares, ovals, and basic shapes can build to create just about anything?

Watch tonight on Facebook Live at 7 pm to find out what creation these circles become. Here is the link to the page, https://www.facebook.com/StampingWithJoni/.

Adding texture.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today is the day I add accents to create a nautical look. Take your Layered Circle Dies and create a ring in the Copper Foil Paper to create an effect of a porthole.

Make sure when stamping you have already cut the dies so you can figure out the layout. It would be a shame to do a bunch of stamping that would not be seen.

Legos are for stamping.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you ever just sat and taken a minute to look around you? We are surrounded by texture, color, and so much more.

Today’s find for me was in the toy box. A lego, a simple building block. I took that block and dipped it in ink to create a background.

What new idea will you try today?

Matching when you are not told.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today is the day that we look past the catalog and figure things out. The catalog says that the Floral Essence stamp set coordinates with the Perennial Flower Punch. But what about the Leaf Punch?

Don’t always take our word for it. Make sure to look and see for yourself. Many times products will coordinate that aren’t listed. What have you found to work together that is not talked about?

Steam punk card.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today is the day we take an alternative look to embossing. For this project you will want to have multiple colors of embossing powders and/or papers. The silver foil paper, copper embossing powder, and clear embossing powder were used.

For a video on how this is done please go to https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-R2dJF-AHO8.

Where a line can make a difference.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Did you ever notice the line on the newer embossing folders? This is so you can line up your card stock and make it straight. If you have older folders you might consider grabbing a sharpie and a ruler. This line has been so helpful to me.
