It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I have 4 cards to show you, 2 cards to create, and one box to stencil. And all of this from two die cuts. Just two. I will be using the succulents bundle and our new foil paper.
For today’s projects you will need:
die cuts from foil
mint macaron ink pad
pear pizzazz ink pad
rich razzleberry ink pad
basic gray ink pad

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not originally intended!
In this case I am using the new Succulents Dies to create four different cards with just one die. Not a set of dies, but one die. Are you ready?
So I cut out the background and then used it as a stencil to create this colored background.
Then I used that same background and wiped it off with a paper towel. I then used Mini Glue Dots rolled up and glued it to a different card using the Rainbow Glimmer Paper.
I then had one of the runs through the die cut machine that gave me less than what I expected. I had cut the foil paper too small so I didn’t get a full image. Instead I cut the scraps off and created accents.
To see the fourth card, a new box, and how to create the stenciled look please join me at NOON for my Facebook Live or on the replay after.
It’s Technique Tuesday! Today I want to show you how to use a new product of ours called the Blending Brushes. They will be available at the beginning of January and are $12 for a set of 3.
You grab a die cut that is a background or has a big cut-out and a piece of foil, acetate, window sheet, or card stock. You will also need a piece of Whisper White or Basic White Card Stock as well as a Blending Brush. After you cut out your die on the foil then you are ready to begin. Hold the foil die cut over the white card stock. Then use the Blending Brush to swirl color on to the background. In this case I used Mint Macaron, Pear Pizzazz, and Rich Razzleberry for ink.
For complete instructions on this technique please plan on joining me on Wednesday at NOON for the Facebook Live at https://facebook.com/StampingWithJoni where I will be demonstrating this. If you can’t make the noon time then plan on catching the replay any time after that.

It’s Sabbath Sunday! This is the day to rest and recharge for the upcoming week.
Do you ever feel that you need to take a break to get back on track and re-focus? This is great, but remember to tell yourself when to return so your break doesn’t become procrastination and spiral out of control.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I will demonstrate how to create an easy and not traditional New Year’s card.
This card uses the Memories and More Card Packs. These packs are designed for scrapbook pages, but can easily be trimmed to fit mats and accents on cards too. For all the measurements and a supply list please go to https://youtu.be/G9JJNgqKido.
It’s Technique Tuesday! Did you know that you could stamp on more than just plain card stock? This is why we have different inks.
For normal card stock with no glossy finish just use our classic ink pads.
For glossy card stock use staz-on ink. Currently we don’t sell glossy card stock but I know it’s out there.
For wood (like balsa wood) use memento or staz-on ink. It depends on what you are coloring with. If you are painting with acrylics or staining then staz-on is preferred. If you are coloring in with the blends (alcohol markers) then memento is the best choice.
For glass use staz-on. The higher the quality of glass the better image you will have. If it smeared simply remove quickly after stamping with a magic eraser. Then wash, dry, and try again.
For cork you can use either memento or staz-on but I prefer the staz-on.
For fabric memento works best for what we carry. There are fabric ink pads out there though.
And last, but not least, for handmade paper use our classic inks, memento, or staz-on. It really depends if you are coloring also.
I hope this is enough to keep that creative mojo flowing.
