It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am playing with some brand new product from the Pressed Petals Suite. The new washi tape with petals to go is awesome! So easy to use and if they are not stuck on straight the petals can be repositioned. Here’s the video on how to create a couple of cards from the new washi tape. Check it out…https://youtu.be/IGwG15kp8Ew.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Do you know that you can create a flower from the balloons? Punch a bunch of the balloons out of the Balloon Bouquet punch. Take one of the larger balloons and trim to create a circle for a base to glue everything to. Do not worry if it is not perfectly circular. Tip: You may want to dot the center of the circle with a pen.
Take the punch outs and break down the fibers of the card stock with the large stylus tip on the Take Your Pick tool. You will need a Piercing Mat as well.
Start to layer the larger balloons on the bottom with 3 glue dots per balloon or petal. You will need 4 balloons per layer. Then attach 2 glue dots per the smaller balloons and attach to the larger ones.
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.
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.
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.
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.
