Back to school card.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today is the day we sing “inch worm, inch worm…”. Did that just play in your head?

As everyone is getting ready for back to school (unless you have survived it) I am going back to the drawing board. Today’s card has a chalkboard or blackboard for the mat. I thought about that last night as I was shooting the Live, are there even chalkboards any longer? Or is everything a dry erase board or even a smart board. Nevertheless, here’s a chalkboard with an inch worm for back to school.


He’s easy to create. Grab a white card base, daffodil delight mat, basic black inner mat, and some scraps of granny apple green. Add a chalk marker and some google eyes and you are ready to go.

In the video, not only do I show you how to make this card, but I also show you some more new products from the Holiday Catalog. Come pick up your copy at the Open House on Saturday! Here’s the video link…https://youtu.be/U3oSMZ67asQ

Mini curvy boxes, bells, and more!

It’s Tutorial Thursday! I know it’s August but around here it’s beginning to look like the fall and Christmas. Or maybe I’m just hoping for cooler weather.

For today I am showing you the new mini curvy boxes and they even have bells on. 🙂

The tag is colored with our Stampin’ Write Markers and the balls on the toes are touched with our new Shimmery Crystal Effects.

Wintery watercolor with a hint of glitter.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am creating an elegant, almost all white Christmas card for you. I start with a Thick Whisper White Card Base. Then I cut a mat out of the Watercolor Paper and a reindeer from the dies in Whisper White Card Stock. I use the Aqua Painter to create the watercolor wash and then add a bit of glitz to it with the Wink of Stella. I also wash the deer in Wink of Stella. And then, the final touch, is to add some of the Frosted Epoxy Drops.

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.

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.

Playing with the daisies.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am playing with the new Daisy Lane Bundle. One card has plenty of texture and looks like a masterpiece with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper. The other is a little more abstract with its black and white composure.

Creating with the new washi tape.

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.

Flowers from balloons.

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.
