Shamrock Card

It’s Tutorial Thursday! As it is almost St. Paddy’s Day I figured a shamrock card would be appropriate. It also breathes new life into those heart dies you bought for Valentine’s Day. Hint, hint.

Happy Crafting!

Hearts are for clovers.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Did you know that the Be Mine Stamps and Dies can be used to create clovers for St. Paddy’s Day? Hearts can easily be turned around to create a clover. Stay tuned tomorrow night at 7 pm on Facebook Live as I create a shamrock card for this special day.

Spinning apes and how to create them.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Watch as I create a card with a spinning ape. You will want to cut a piece of card stock for a card base and score in the middle. Then you will cut mats of the same color that are light enough to stamp on at 5 1/4″ X 4″ and 5″ X 3 3/4″. The smaller mat you will cut with two circles. Make sure there is a 3/8″ gap between the center circle and the cut out so the pennies can slide in the gap. Stamp as wanted.

For the slider portion you will use two pennies and two dimensionals and create a sandwich. This will slide in to create your spinner portion.

For further instruction please watch the video at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zsn8fwdx0do.

P.S. Just a reminder that there is open time at the studio today.

Creating heart cards.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! Today I will show you how to create two heart cards for Valentine’s Day. They can also be switched for a wedding or anniversary. The biggest tip I have for you is to make sure the clear cutting plates are not scratched up so the foil paper does not get marred while being run through the Big Shot.

If you would like to see how to create these please check out the Tufted Hearts Video at https://youtu.be/EtpLnhdBrT0.

Cleaning up…

It’s Sabbath Sunday and today is a little different than most Sundays. Since Christmas is right around the corner today is a catch up, clean up kind of day for me. Last night was the Open House so I will be cleaning a bit and then taking some inventory. It’s time to clean out the Christmas craft fair inventory and begin for spring and Valentine’s Day. I will put some work in today so I don’t have to tomorrow or Tuesday.

What are you up to today?

Happy Crafting!

Joni 🙂
