Delicate Faux Linen

final-10

This was one of the techniques that came to mind when I first saw the Colorful Seasons bundle!  Faux Linen was one of the very first cards I made over 9 years ago!  I am surprised that it’s taken me this long to do that technique again!  We made this card for our stamp club this month!  Super simple!!

  1. Use a neutral or light color card stock for your base.  I used Soft Sky in this photo.
  2. Take a piece of tissue that you use for gift wrapping.  Stamp desired images on it. Then wad it up one to two times and flatten it out. I chose not to stamp on the tissue here.
  3. Use your Tombo Multi Purpose glue and apply to the whole card base using a sponge piece.  (I store mine in a baggie to keep it moist).
  4. Gently use your fingers to lay your tissue down and smooth out most of the wrinkles.  You want some.  (Elmer’s glue works too, but it tears the tissue easily).
  5. Let dry and attach to your card!

I was able to stamp the sentiment directly on it when it was dry.  I also used the Fine Tip Glue pen to attach the branch.  Then I used Glue Dots to adhere the flowers together.  There is a whole piece and a detailed piece to make 3 different flowers.  cherry blossom

I then used a blender pen with Berry Burst to color the centers.  A pearl added the finishing touch!

Hope you enjoued this card as much as I did making it!  LOVE cherry blossoms!  You can order this and other items at my website! Remember to get your loyalty rewards too!  Any order of $150 or more is eligible for host benefits!

Are you new to stamping?  Here is a great card to try out!  Just a few supplies and you are ready to go!  I made this for my Sweet & Simple class this month!  Love this new Berry Burst color with pops of Lemon Lime Twist!

Here is how to make the card:

  1. Cut 8 1/2″ x 11 card stock in half (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″);  Whisper White 2 3/4″ x 5 1/2″; scraps of Basic Black, Whisper White.
  2. Ink the water color flower image with Berry Burst & stamp off before adding to the Whisper White card stock. Stamp the flower cluster randomly with Berry Burst ink onto the Berry Burst card stock. Adhere Whisper White piece with water color flowers to card.
  3. Stamp the upright flower out line image with Memento Black Ink. Color with the Berry Burst & Lemon Lime Twist markers. Stamp sentiment of your choice on the Whisper White square.
  4. Cut out Square Stitched Shapes with the Big Shot. Adhere that image to the Basic Black square as a mat. Attach to card using dimensionals. All done!

High Tide So Serene

By the Tide II

High Tide is a wonderful set to use when making thinking of you cards, sympathy cards, masculine cards, and framed art pieces! I really enjoyed the 2 step stamping that this set showcases!

I am usually a card maker that loves a lot of layers!  This has the texture and movement of the Cherry Cobbler embossed piece underneath the main image.  I used the Seaside Embossing Folder for that and used the NEW Wood Textures 6×6 paper pack!  Can I tell you this pack if FULL of great wood images!  The possibilities are endless with this paper pack! With the rustic farm designs taking storm lately, this is a must for your paper stash!

By The Tide

I first used the Cherry Cobbler and stamped the 1st part of the lighthouse.  Then I used Dapper Denim to add the dimension.  The photopolymer stamps really make this a seamless image! I used Crumb Cake for the sand stamp and Old Olive for the beach grass.  Next I used Dapper Denim for the water waves and followed that with a blender pen to create the softer water color. The sentiment is stamped with Basic Gray so it wouldn’t take over the focal point.  The linen thread was added for a little more texture.

Happy Stampin!

Fresh Fruit Fold

Triple Gate Fold

What is it about strawberries make me smile??  Love this paper!  I am so glad I got an extra pack! Yes, I am a paper and ribbon hoarder-proud of it too!  This was the 2nd card I taught how to make at my Fun Folds Class last Sunday.  Super fun and I saw this on Lyssa Zwolanek’s blog too!

To begin, you’ll need to gather:

·        5 1/2 x 8 1/2 inch cardstock (regular size card base) (I used Garden Green)

·         Simple Scored or other scoring tools

·        Patterned paper (Fruit Stand DSP)

·        Stamps, ink, punches, etc, to embellish as desired (Fresh Fruit Stamp set)

Note: you’ll probably want to cut a plain 2 x 5 1/2 inch strip of neutral colored cardstock for the back of the main panel, so you can write your message (not shown). Or you can write on the back!.

Triple Gate fold how to

Score the cardstock base at 2, 3 1/8, 5 3/8, and 6 1/2 inches on the long side.

Fold towards the back on the two inner scores, and towards the front on the two outer scores.

Decorate as desired!  I have 2 new products in the card picture!  Can you find them?

Floral Fanfare Fold

Fanfare Fold II

I held a Fun Folds class today and this was one of the cards we made!  I like to mix up my cards to create that WOW factor!  This one was CASED from Lyssa Zwolanek’s Blog: Song of my Heart. She has great tutorials and her cards are just beautiful!! Instructions were adapted from her blog:

  • 4.25×5.5 inch cardstock base (Whisper White shown here)
  • 4×5.25 Night of Navy mat piece
  • 4.25×11 inch cardstock strip (Night of Navy shown here)
  • Simply Scored or other scoring tools
  • Tear n Tape or other strong adhesive
  • patterned paper of your choice (Floral Boutique shown here)
  • Score the cardstock strip at 1 1/2, 5, 3, 5 1/2 and 8 inches on the long side.
  • Attach the widest panel in the center of the cardstock base, using a strong adhesive since there will be a lot of tension on this piece.

Accordion-fold the rest of the strip, pressing each fold down firmly with your Bone Folder so that it will lay as flat as possible.

Decorate each panel as desired. Stagger your embellishments so they are all seen from the front when the card is closed. Here’s the measurements for the patterned paper layers:

  • 4 x 2.75 inches (largest back panel)
  • 4 x 2.25 inches (middle inside panel)
  • 4 x 1.25 inches (outside front panel DSP)
  • 4 x 2.25 inches (neutral cardstock or plain panel for writing message)
