When old meets new.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am starting to talk about Father’s Day. There are some great sets with some truly meaningful sayings that are so appropriate for this occasion. So today’s card is created with A Good Man and Geared Up Garage.

Here is the video on how to create the card and much more of what is going on. https://youtu.be/03C25T_t-vU

Coloring to coordinate the ribbon.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! This is the day we don’t have inky fingers. Yes, that’s right. No inky fingers.

So here is what you do. To color a ribbon you grab any shade of Stampin’ Blends (alcohol marker) that you want and color away. You will need to color a bit beyond where you want to finish so you don’t have any lighter spots or bleed. Let dry about a minute and you are ready to tie your bow.

At the same time you can grab your Craft Whisper White Pad and only ink the area of the pad you will need to stamp. Don’t waste the ink making the entire pad juicy. Then stamp after taking the static out of the card stock. Shortly after stamping you will want to cover with your chosen embossing powder (clear is used here). The last step is to take your heat tool and melt the powder until it becomes smooth and no longer has an individual crystal look to it.

Here is the video if you would like to watch how to create these cards.

When pencils are paintbrushes and aqua painters become ink pads.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! I’m sure you are reading this headline and wondering if I am stuck on Wacky Wednesday. To answer your question…nope. I know what I am doing. Trust me on this one.

So today I am asking you to shake up your shimmer paint and dip your pencil in the lid to get those flower centers. To get the purple centers I lightly dipped my stylus into my ink pad. Remember the word lightly, please.

I also took an aqua painter filled 3/4 of the way with rubbing alcohol and dripped about 8 drops of shimmer paint into the barrel. I capped it tightly and gently shook the pen until all was mixed. I uncapped away from my card stock and then squeezed the barrel until I had my wet shimmer paint coming out. I then brushed it on to the stamp (Floral Essence, out on June 4) and stamped away to create my background.

Remember to cut almost double the ribbon you need with the copper trim so you can stretch it to make it look like a net.

Here’s the cards…

Rubber band background.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Here’s how to create this card.

Grab a card base and a wood textured piece of paper. The wood textured paper is cut to 5″ X 3 3/4″. The white inner mat is cut to 4 1/2″ X 3 1/4″.

I took a clear block and wrapped it with rubber bands. I then inked it with Tranquil Tide and stamped a random background. I attached both mats with Snail Adhesive. The daisy and butterfly are attached with Dimensionals.

Embossing on multiple papers.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! This is the day we learn how to emboss on vellum, window sheets, and glossy card stock. To color them you will need the Stampin’ Blends (alcohol markers). You can also emboss with powder and a heat tool but the blends bring a level of softness to the card.

When daisies are bunnies.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Did you know that daisies can become bunnies? Remember to look at your products upside down, sideways, and in pieces.

If you clip off all but two of the petals for the daisy punch you get a bunny for Easter. Just remember that the head still needs to be round.

We will be creating this card for Card Class next week. Join me!

P.S. Did anyone notice anything different this week? A pack of dimensionals to you if you get it right.

When one piece of paper becomes a basket.

It’s Wacky Wednesday! This is the day where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Today is the day I will show you how to use one piece of paper and get an entire basket out of it. No, I will not be cutting strips like before and gluing them all together. This project is rather simple.

So stay tuned for tonight’s Facebook Live at 7 pm to learn how to make these Easter baskets.
