Dimensionals are not just to elevate.

Dimensionals can be used for so many things.  So today I am hoping to get you thinking outside the box a bit.  Listed below are several different ways to use dimensionals (mini or regular size).

  1.  To pop up an accent piece on a card or project.
  2.  To level a card if there is a portion that is sunk in.
  3.  To have a stop in a slide card.
  4.  To have a rail in a slide card.
  5.  To have a barrier for the filler in a shaker card.
  6.  To attach knick-knacks to a shelf.
  7.  To put on the bottom side of a coaster when the cork or felt feet fall off.
  8.  To stop on a door on a doll house.

These are just a few.  Please comment if you have another use for our beloved dimensionals.

Happy Crafting!

Sometimes dimensionals level you out.

Sometimes dimensionals are not to bring things up but to level them out.  When doing a shaker card you have an area that is higher than the rest.  This is where the shaker is.  To level out the card so nothing ends up concave use dimensionals to level it out.

Stampin’ Blends

Today’s tutorial is all about the new stampin’ blends.  These are Stampin’ Up!’s new alcohol markers that are awesome!  They are available November 1st (next Wednesday).

Here is a cute card using the blends and a picture guide on what to do.  So…let’s get started.

Step 1:  Stamp with Memento ink.  This will allow for no smearing.

Step 2:  Get out a light and dark of the same color as well as the color lifter.

Step 3:  Color as desired.  I started with the darker color and left a blank space for the highlight on the right side of the balloon.  I used the color lifter to bring some texture and depth to the balloon.

Step 4:  Finish coloring.  Notice the shading.

Step 5:  Attach balloon with dimensionals.  (I used the technique from a few Wednesdays ago.  This is the one that used the tip of the aqua painter to make the edges roll down.)  Mat and finish the card by stamping an appropriate greeting.

Aqua painter is not just for painting.

Have you ever stuck an embellishment or accent piece on with your dimensionals and you can see the edges of them sticking out?  Then get your aqua painter out.  No, I haven’t lost my mind.  I did just say aqua painter.  The top of it or the rounded end is perfect for giving a bit of an edge to an embellishment so you don’t see those dimensionals.  Stick around for tonight’s Facebook Live on www.facebook.com/StampingWithJoni to see what I am talking about.

Happy Crafting!
