Snowy backgrounds with water.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today is the day we create a snowy background with water. No ink, just water.

So first you will need your card stock. If you are following the sample you will need a thick white card base, night of navy mat, and whisper white card stock for the snowman. Take your night of navy mat and spritz with water. Sprinkle white embossing powder on the card stock and heat. Stamp your snowman and punch out. For further details please watch the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Evm5S8n5Kd8.

Getting hammered.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today we are creating from the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder.

Remember that you want to pay attention if you want the front or back of the folder. If you want an image that is raised you will want the front of the folder where the logo is. If you want an image that is more concave you will want the back of the folder where it is blank or the copyright is displayed.

For this card you will need a Thick Very Vanilla Card Base, Mossy Meadow Mat, Blue Peacock Foil Paper for inner mat, Brightly Gleaming Designer Series Paper with the ornament punch, and ribbon.

Not a card but a trimmer instead.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Instead of giving you a tutorial for a card or project I am giving you a walk through and review of the new paper trimmer. So take a listen and have a look at our new product coming soon to you.

If you want it before then you need to sign up to be a demonstrator. You don’t need to do all that I do so ask me for more details.

Here’s the link to the video…https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IfuYebNadLM.

Sometimes easy is what gets it done.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Sometimes easy is the only thing that will get it done when you are in a time crunch. If you need a quick favor for Halloween for your co-workers or for your kid’s class then think about the coffin boxes. With some tear and tape and ribbon you are off to the races. (You will probably need some candy too.)

Just remember to give enough time for them to get here. If you are thinking of doing these don’t wait and contact me to order now.

Paper Pumpkin and Its Alternative.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today we are making pumpkins and apples out of boxes. The Paper Pumpkin for this month are some cute Halloween-themed mini gable boxes. I know some of you want cards so I came up with an alternative to the box so a card could still be created.

You will need the Harvest Hello Bundle to create the alternative card.

Washi tape card.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! It’s time to create a quick washi tape card with a floral pansy.

Take your card base and cut a mat (Feels Like Frost Specialty 6X6 Designer Series Paper used here) to 5″ X 3 3/4″. Then take the same color as your card base (Whisper White used here) and cut an additional mat to 4 1/2″ X 3 1/4″. Stick the washi tape on the white card stock in a pattern of your choice. (Tip: Make sure to leave at least 1/4″ of washi tape to tuck under the back side of the card stock.)

To see how the flower was done and the card was completed please go to the video at https://youtu.be/RmTjYuzCw-c.
