The rest of the cardstock is from the Treasures line. The golden is Butternut Orange. All the beautiful green is Grass Treasures. The brown is Crafty Brown. All this cardstock has a texture to it which is beautiful for layers.
I am so excited about the cards on Split Coast Stamper the last couple of week. I love cards that have different folds to them. I would suggest watching the video for the because I found the written directions to be a little confusing. I printed the directions and then added extra at places from the video.
This is a birthday card for a little girl I know that was turning one. The theme for her birthday party was owls. The owl on the front has a little spring like thing behind it that makes it jiggle when you touch it.
I just love different folds in cards. This was on Split Coast Stamper last week. It is called a Twist Gate Fold. I did do my angle a little differently, but this is how it worked.
All the solid cardstock is from Paper Temptress. The beautiful dark orange is Treasures Mango Orange. The white in the center and the ghost are Cryogen White which has a little bit of shimmer to it. Just perfect for a ghost. The black is Black Basis. The patterned paper was just paper that I had in my stash.
I made this card with one of my favorite Stampin' Up sets. The stamp set is called Swirly Bird and the die set is called Swirly Scribbles.
I wanted the base to be a nice dark purple so Grape Jelly Pop Tones was perfect. The second white layer is Cryogen White because I wanted a little bit of sheen. I embossed this with a SU folder called softly falling. The stamped swirls were from the Swirly Bird set.
This is a stairstep card I made for an aunt. You can actually make this card and do the measurements yourself. I got a really good deal on a die so I used that. It is nice because you run it through the Sizzix and you are done.
The picture gives you an idea of what it looks like, but the real thing is so much more dimensional.
Most of the cardstock in this card came from the Treasures line. I love it because it has a slight texture. The Green is Grass and the tan is Crafty Brown. Actually the two patterned papers are the same color cardstock. I have some really big background stamps that I have not used much. There was a curved handle you were supposed to use with them, but it never really worked well. Now I have a Misti tool for making sure stamping comes out perfectly and I am back into using them.
This is a card I made for a dear uncle. I am just addicted to my new cricut. This was one of the projects and what better paper to use than the many colors and perfect heavy weight paper from Paper Temptress.
Every piece for this project is from the Malermo Pearle and Mica Metallic line because they both have some sheen to them. I am going to start with Malermo Pearle line. The beautiful blue of the base is Abysse Malermo Pearle. The red lines are Vermillion Malermo Pearle. I used Emeraude Malermo Pearle for the green lettering.
Happy Sunday to everyone. I got the beautiful die set from Stampin' Up called swirly scribbles for my birthday. The round die cut images in this card are from that set. All the paper is from Paper Temptress
This is sort of playful card and sort of fun to do. The white part of this card is Solar White Classic Linen. I took a stencil and spritzed it with water. I then used water color crayons on it. Once I got the colors I wanted on it I turned the stencil over onto the cardstock. This made a wonderful base for finishing with some stamps.
I used a technique from Technique Junkies for this card. It is called glossy outlines. I stamped the flower in black and colored the image with Copic markers. I then outlined the black lines with liquid pearls.
I made this card for a group I am in. We were each sent multiples of the wagon image. There are 6 of us participating. The idea is to see what everyone comes up with. I had a tough time getting started, but the wheels finally started turning.
I have not used a cricut in a long time and now I just can't stop. The flowers and the pots were cut on a cricut. I did cut out the wagon by hand, but my next project is to see if I can cut a stamped image out on the cricut.
This is a special card for a dear uncle. All the paper is from Paper Temptress . I am usually a stamper for my card posts. Several of my friends have been cutting vinyl with their Cricut machines. Well this craft hoarder had a Cricut she never uses. So I decided to get it out and see what I could do. The cartridge used is All Occasion Box Cards. I know you can do this all on your own, but it was so easy to pick the paper and press the button and let it cut.
Hi everyone, this is Vickie. Today for my post I used a technique called Stencil Punches from Technique Junkies. For this technique you punch a shape from scrap cardstock and use it as a stencil. You then actually punch more shapes and use them for the design of the card.
All the paper used is from Paper Temptress. The base for this card is Neenah Super Smooth Ivory. All the rest of the cardstock comes from the glimmer line. The beautiful copper layer is Copper Ore Glimmer. I used Beargrass Glimmer to do the stenciling on. The highlighted edge is done with Distress Vintage Photo. The middles of the flowers was also cut from the Beargrass Glimmer.
This is a card I made using a technique called color isolation. The small flower in the background is the same flower used for the center of the quilt block. The stamps and dies are all from Paper Trey Ink
Nearly all the rest of the card is Neenah Super Smooth Ivory. I love making my own designer paper. I just recently bought a Misti stamp tool. It is fantastic. It lines everything up and if the image does not come out perfect, it is aligned so that you can restamp until it looks good. I didn't really like these Cover-A-Card background stamps from Impression Obsession because I could never get a good stamped image. Now I can use the Misti and keep reinking and stamping until it looks good.
This is a card I made for the father of a guy I work with. I saw something similar on Pinterest and used what I had. I really love the look. I got the airplane stamp from Stampin' Up during Celebration.
This is a technique from Technique Junkies. I stamped on white tissue paper with black Momento ink. Cut a piece of tissue paper bigger than needed. The next step was to apply alcohol ink to felt and dap onto the tissue paper. Apply three colors randomly. Let the paper dry and then crumple the paper. I used stick glue to attach to cardstock. Trim to the size of cardstock and layer as you like.
I added the sentiment and butterfly to finish things off,
This is a technique from Technique Junkies. I have looked numerous times but cannot find the name.
I took an embossing folder and applied three distress stains to it. I spritzed it with water and inserted my paper and embossed it in my Big Shot. I then highlighted the raised area with Antique Linen Distress Ink.
I embossed the main image and added sentiment. I layered the main image on a dark brown layer.
The dark purple layer is Basis Dark Purple. The main image was stamped on Cryogen White. This layer also has a sheen look to it. The flowers are from a stamp from Stampin' Up called Lotus Blossom. I love this set because I was able to do the flower in layers. That made it possible to make the flower tri-colored.
This is another birthday card I made recently. I fell in love with all the layers. All the stamps and the die are from Stampin' Up. I have all these beautiful flower stamps and flowers and love the way they can all layer together.
This is a birthday card for my Mother- In- Law. I am a real lover of Pinterest and I saw something similar only the large background was different. I had this beautiful doily stamp and thought it would be perfect.
This is a birthday card for my niece. All the paper is from Paper Temptress.
The card base is Heavenly White. The first layer looks a little odd in the picture, but it is actually Silver Metallic Glossy. I stamped on it with die ink. I did try and heat set it. Quite frankly some stayed on and others came off. I do like the Reflective look though.
I was looking for a different look for my post. This is a technique I found in my Technique Junkies Newsletters called Faux Felt. You take the cardstock and run it through a paper crimper multiple times in different directions. This breaks down the fibers . Once you have done that multiple times you start at one corner and separate the top and bottom layers apart. Use the inside portion as the part that will be showing. It makes a rough look like felt. The good thing about Paper Temptress paper is that is so nice and thick.
