It’s Tutorial Thursday! The easiest way to create a 3D stencil is to grab your white or black (depends if the paper is light or dark), create a stencil with dies or punches, grab some ink, and a sponge. Sponge your neutral color first and then shift and sponge your color second. This will create a shadow effect for you.
So I figured I would introduce you to the Stampin’ Up! channel. This particular project is really cute and since it is Valentine’s Day I figured you could use a project with some gift wrapping. Give it a look…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-9ym4muIhk.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Watch as I create a card with a spinning ape. You will want to cut a piece of card stock for a card base and score in the middle. Then you will cut mats of the same color that are light enough to stamp on at 5 1/4″ X 4″ and 5″ X 3 3/4″. The smaller mat you will cut with two circles. Make sure there is a 3/8″ gap between the center circle and the cut out so the pennies can slide in the gap. Stamp as wanted.
For the slider portion you will use two pennies and two dimensionals and create a sandwich. This will slide in to create your spinner portion.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I will show you how to create two heart cards for Valentine’s Day. They can also be switched for a wedding or anniversary. The biggest tip I have for you is to make sure the clear cutting plates are not scratched up so the foil paper does not get marred while being run through the Big Shot.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! While I don’t have a new card to show you, I do have a new kit. Today’s project is from the Sale-A-Bration brochure and is called the Precious Parcel Card Kit. There are 8 cards to be created easily and are cute as anything. They also fit nicely in the envelopes provided in the kit.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Happy Thanksgiving! Today’s technique requires a bunch of water and drying time. It comes out different every time. You will need aqua painters, some ink, dies, and a stamp for this.
To create this card please watch the Bokeh Video (https://youtu.be/cITPRFyiqRw).
It’s Tutorial Thursday! The swipe is not a hard technique but it does take some practice. If you push too hard you get too much ink or you could damage your pad. If you push too lightly then you don’t have enough background and have to start over. There is definitely a sweet spot.
So the first few that you do I would encourage you to do on a scrap piece of card stock. It needs to be similar to your final product otherwise it will soak up the ink differently and your practice will be for nothing. Here’s a photo of some finished cards.
