Afraid to cut your paper?

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

Are you afraid to run out of your favorite paper? Do you know that many times our stamps coordinate so well that you can often create your own paper?

So don’t be afraid to look at what you have and duplicate what you like.

When things line up.

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

Yesterday during Card Class Shawnie helped me to see that the Magnolia Designer Series Paper somewhat lines up with the Leaf Punch.

Remember that even though it doesn’t say that it coordinates it just might. Make sure to look at all the products backwards, sideways, and upside down.

Using only part of the die.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I will show you how to use part of the die to create a unique background or mat. With this you will also need a piece of Designer Series Paper.

To start, you will need your card base. Then have a mat cut no larger than 5″ X 3 3/4″. This mat needs to be out of Designer Series Paper or some form of pattern. If you don’t want a pattern then you can stamp on card stock to create a background or run through an embossing folder to get a bunch of texture. After you choose your patterned paper you can glue it down.

Then you will get plain card stock that coordinates in color. You will want to trim it about a quarter of an inch larger than your mat. In this case I took the Rectangle Stitched Framelits and placed on the edge to create a separated mat. You can use any larger die that has an edge to it. Tip: You might want to pick a die with stitching or some kind of built in texture to add interest.

Then, lastly, you will add some embellishments, gems, and the sentiment.

Using Memories & More to Meet in the Middle!

It’s Technique Tuesday! Sometimes you are trying to create a quick card and it just doesn’t seem to come together. You don’t want to cut another piece of card stock but all your scraps are just a bit too short. Then grab some Designer Series Paper or a Memories & More scrap and place it in the middle. Simply cut and trim so it looks like it is supposed to be that way.

Letting the paper shine.

How to get a vintage look.

It’s Technique Tuesday! There is an easy way to get a whitewash vintage look. Grab your white craft ink refill, an aqua painter, and a silicone mat. If you don’t have a silicone mat then grab a piece of waxed paper. Basically you want something to create a palette without the ink soaking into it.

Place about 5 drops of ink on your mat. Fill the aqua painter with water. Then proceed to whitewash your stamped image. You will want to stamp with the memento ink so as to not smear. Let dry between layers so the paper does not start to break down.

Happy Crafting!
