Tuck and roll!

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Today I am going to show you how to tuck something so it breaks up the pattern. You cut out anything lacy, stitched, or embroidered and then create a pennant to go through it. This allows the pattern to beContinue reading “Tuck and roll!”

Dies and papers line up.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Did you know that so much coordinates with Stampin’ Up!? I know I have said that the paper, markers, ink pads, and embellishments all match. But, did you know, that sometimes the Designer Series Papers or Specialty Papers also lineContinue reading “Dies and papers line up.”

Using dies to overlay.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today is the day we learn about dies or punches closing a card. You can use an accent piece to overlay on a cad or project to make it appear to close. In this case I used a gatefold card and then used glittery bats to close it. For the card youContinue reading “Using dies to overlay.”

Playing with shapes.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today we are talking about creating more with the same product. For these samples the Stitched Shapes Dies, Layering Oval Dies, and the Stitched Rectangle Dies were used. I took a shape and cut four sizes. Then each of the shapes I cut in half to create the pattern. The base shapesContinue reading “Playing with shapes.”

Pieces and parts make a whole.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Sometimes you have to cut up a large stamp into pieces and then re-create it.

Using dies as the centerpiece.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today we are talking about letting the paper and dies shine through. Stamping doesn’t always have to be the center of attention, right? So today I am taking the Perfect Parcels Dies and picking that one detailed border die that I seem to never use. It was always too short or tooContinue reading “Using dies as the centerpiece.”

Punches and buckles.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today we are creating a decorative border with a punch (you can also use a die) as well as a modified buckle card. For the card with the punched border. Grab a card base and punch or die cut your border. After stamp your images or sentiments and you are done. SoContinue reading “Punches and buckles.”

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you created a card and it just doesn’t speak to you? It’s got the same shape…square…and it just screams bbbbooooooorrrrrriiiiinnnnnngggg. Then use a die to shape the edges and create a border of sorts. The negative image of theContinue reading “Using a die for a border.”

Split those dies.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Do you ever get a die that you simply think is too big? Do you wish they had made it half the size? Then split it. You heard me. Cut it right down the middle. Take your Paper Trimmer andContinue reading “Split those dies.”

Color the darker part on the bottom.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Have you tried the Stampin’ Blends? These are our alcohol-based markers. For today’s project I colored the sunflower with the light and dark of the Daffodil Delight as well as the Soft Suede. When coloring the center I had the outer ring a bit lighter and the center a touch darker. ForContinue reading “Color the darker part on the bottom.”
