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.

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!

3D Stenciling

It’s Tutorial Thursday! The easiest way to create a 3D stencil is to grab your white or black (depends if the paper is light or dark), create a stencil with dies or punches, grab some ink, and a sponge. Sponge your neutral color first and then shift and sponge your color second. This will create a shadow effect for you.
