Candy canes from circles.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today is the day that I show you how to create a candy cane from just circles. I chose scalloped ones but plain ones work too. Cut about a dozen each of the red and white circles and start gluing.

Where circles become Christmas.

It’s Wacky Wednesday where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Today we are using circles to create a Christmas card. Yes, Christmas. Did you know that circles, squares, ovals, and basic shapes can build to create just about anything?

Watch tonight on Facebook Live at 7 pm to find out what creation these circles become. Here is the link to the page, https://www.facebook.com/StampingWithJoni/.

Steam punk card.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today is the day we take an alternative look to embossing. For this project you will want to have multiple colors of embossing powders and/or papers. The silver foil paper, copper embossing powder, and clear embossing powder were used.

Creating with the new washi tape.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am playing with some brand new product from the Pressed Petals Suite. The new washi tape with petals to go is awesome! So easy to use and if they are not stuck on straight the petals can be repositioned. Here’s the video on how to create a couple of cards from the new washi tape. Check it out…https://youtu.be/IGwG15kp8Ew.

Flowers from balloons.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Do you know that you can create a flower from the balloons? Punch a bunch of the balloons out of the Balloon Bouquet punch. Take one of the larger balloons and trim to create a circle for a base to glue everything to. Do not worry if it is not perfectly circular. Tip: You may want to dot the center of the circle with a pen.

Take the punch outs and break down the fibers of the card stock with the large stylus tip on the Take Your Pick tool. You will need a Piercing Mat as well.

Start to layer the larger balloons on the bottom with 3 glue dots per balloon or petal. You will need 4 balloons per layer. Then attach 2 glue dots per the smaller balloons and attach to the larger ones.

Embossing with glossy paper.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Have you ever thought that embossing folder is pretty and I love the details but they don’t seem to pop? Have you tried it on glossy paper? I recently received a swap at OnStage and another demonstrator had taken the Country Floral 3D Embossing Folder and paired it with glossy paper. It was gorgeous!

Be watching for this technique tomorrow evening on Facebook Live at 7 pm.

When a fraction becomes a whole.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am only using part of a stamp to illustrate how to create a partial background and a simple card. Take a sponge, another stamp, or a sponge dauber to ink the background stamp. Then stamp away.

How to create a floating card.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am going to show you how to create a floating card. Yes, floating. Since there are only four glue dots that you can see from the back it gives the appearance that the mats and sentiment are floating.

Here’s the link to the video…https://youtu.be/4w5_b_PsBsc.

Enjoy! Happy Crafting!
