What you look for you find.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.

Have you every woken up on the wrong side of the bed? It just seems that no matter what you do or touch, it’s wrong. And the harder you try, trouble just seems to find you. But on the flip side of this if you are having a good day your fortune just seems to multiply.

I have realized that if I am not finding kindness, gentleness, grace, or sometimes even mercy in those around me it is often because my spirit, energy, soul…whatever you want to call it…is not attracting the right things. When I am stressed everyone around me seems to be stressed. When I am angry everyone around me tends to be a little tense. And when I am content…you get the idea, right?

So I would encourage you to take care of yourself so you can attract what most you are craving.

Happy Crafting!

Shapes are for animals.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended!

So shapes are for animals? Crafting is for the birds? This is not at all what I am saying. What I am saying is to look through your punches or dies and look for body shapes…ears, eyes, noses, etc.

When I saw the heart and some ovals I found a bunny just in time for Easter.

If you want to see how to create this bunny and a few other projects please join me tonight at 7 pm on my Facebook Live. The link is https://fb.me/e/hZhECulqP.

Breaking up the paper.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today we are talking about how to break up that busy paper.

As some of you know I am not always a fan of really busy paper or Designer Series Paper. I often prefer the more abstract watercolors or backgrounds. But, nevertheless, here I am talking about that busy paper that reminds me of my Grama. You see my Grama had in her guest bedroom some wallpaper that looked pretty similar to this. It was called the “daisy room” and after looking at the picture below you will know exactly why.

So instead of cutting all those little pieces for accents take a piece of coordinating solid card stock and place it across the entire piece to break up the pattern. It’s amazing how a properly arranged diversion can help so much.

If you use this technique please post your photos of your creation on my page, https://www.facebook.com/StampingWithJoni.

Are you running low?

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest and recharge so you are ready to go for the week.

Have you noticed that your batteries seem to be running low? Are you tired no matter what you do?

Recently I did some maintenance on my truck and realized that the water in my battery was running a bit low. I checked because when I started my truck it just seemed a little slower to start than normal. So I popped the top and poured some distilled water down in there. The next time I went to start it there was no problem getting it to go.

If you are feeling like it’s a little hard to get started you might need to take a second to refill your batteries. That might be just enjoying a cup of coffee or it might be travelling a bit. Whatever you need to do to get recharged make sure to block time off and get filled up again.

Happy Crafting!

Perspective is everything.

It’s Friendship Friday! This is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward.

I recently have been feeling like I am hitting a wall physically. I have been back to my workouts for about a month and my body is on a plateau. It seems to be teasing me to see if I am really serious about this whole healthy thing.

As I was talking to a friend about this they said maybe the wall is there to remind you to not do it all right now. After taking a breath (a day or two off) I realized the wall wasn’t that high after all. Now I am able to keep going after taking a second to relax.

I don’t know if you are going through something similar physically, mentally, or spiritually. But I will remind you to lean on your wall for a moment to catch your breath before you go over it.

Happy Crafting!

Spritzing some glimmer.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I want to show you how to use a stencil with some self-made glimmer mist paint.

For this card you will need a card base, outer mat, and inner mat. The inner mat needs to be somewhat dark for the shimmer to show up. And don’t forget the envelope.

The shimmer paint mist is done by getting a Stampin’ Spritzer and filling it about three quarters full with rubbing alcohol. I then dropped five drops of the Frost White Shimmer Paint in the tube and shook it (after putting the cap on). Then you place the stencil over the card stock and spray away. The alcohol dries faster than water so the card stock does not disintegrate.

The label was cut from the Stitched Shapes Dies. Before I punched the card stock out of the die I ran a stylus around the edge to give a slight border. I stamped the trees and sentiment from the latest Paper Pumpkin Kit. The trees were inked with Gray Granite but stamped off once. The sentiment was stamped in Basic Gray Ink. I then used Dimensionals to create depth for this card to stand out.

To view how this card was created and more than four other stenciling techniques please go to https://youtu.be/sD7BTU18lUE.

Happy Crafting!
