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.

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.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am playing with the new Daisy Lane Bundle. One card has plenty of texture and looks like a masterpiece with the Perennial Essence Designer Series Paper. The other is a little more abstract with its black and white composure.
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.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I want to talk to you about securing small parts with a base.
For this new In Color card you need a Thick White card base, a Seaside Spray card stock mat, a scrap of white card stock, the 6×6 in color pack, a piece of the new colored vellum from Perennial Essence 12×12 Vellum, and a Gold Faceted Gem.
Take your scrap of white card stock and glue the in color pieces to it. This way if you don’t line up perfectly you are only peeling off a scrap and not the mat or card base.
The flower was stamped and punched out of the new Floral Essence Bundle. When gluing the flower together make sure to have the rough sides of the vellum facing each other so the glue dots will hold.
If you would like to create this card for FREE then let me know that you are coming on Saturday.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I am starting to talk about Father’s Day. There are some great sets with some truly meaningful sayings that are so appropriate for this occasion. So today’s card is created with A Good Man and Geared Up Garage.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! I’m sure you are reading this headline and wondering if I am stuck on Wacky Wednesday. To answer your question…nope. I know what I am doing. Trust me on this one.
So today I am asking you to shake up your shimmer paint and dip your pencil in the lid to get those flower centers. To get the purple centers I lightly dipped my stylus into my ink pad. Remember the word lightly, please.
I also took an aqua painter filled 3/4 of the way with rubbing alcohol and dripped about 8 drops of shimmer paint into the barrel. I capped it tightly and gently shook the pen until all was mixed. I uncapped away from my card stock and then squeezed the barrel until I had my wet shimmer paint coming out. I then brushed it on to the stamp (Floral Essence, out on June 4) and stamped away to create my background.
Remember to cut almost double the ribbon you need with the copper trim so you can stretch it to make it look like a net.
It’s Tutorial Thursday! Here’s how to create this card.
Grab a card base and a wood textured piece of paper. The wood textured paper is cut to 5″ X 3 3/4″. The white inner mat is cut to 4 1/2″ X 3 1/4″.
I took a clear block and wrapped it with rubber bands. I then inked it with Tranquil Tide and stamped a random background. I attached both mats with Snail Adhesive. The daisy and butterfly are attached with Dimensionals.
