IMG_1391 IMG_1394

So aren't they the cutest things ever!!!  Looks kind of like the Roaring Twenties!  Let me show you how easy it is (f you are viewing this from your email, click here to see the video)…

Supplies:

Stamps:  A Dozen Thoughts and Happy Watercolor

Card Stock:  Pool Party, Island Indigo, Midnight Muse

Ink:  Island Indigo and Black Stazon

Accessories:  #133325 NEW Fringe Scissors, #129393 Creped Filter Paper, Linen Thread, Pool Party Seam Binding

TUTORIAL:

1.  Start with a cardbase that is the same color as your lightest color in your layers (I used Pool Party).  Cut the card base 4 1/4" x 11" and score at 5 1/2".

2.  Cut three pieces of Pool party at 2" x 4 1/4", with the short side on top, score ONLY two of these pieces at the 1" mark – leave one unscored.

3.  cut two pieces of Island Indigo at 2" x 4 1/4", with the short side on top, score these pieces at 1".

4.  cut two pieces of Midnight Muse at 2" x 4 1/4", with the short side on top, score these pieces at 1".

5.  Using your NEW Fringe Scissors, on the long side, fringe all six scored pieces up to the scored mark (it's okay if you go over a little bit, it will be covered with the next piece).

6.  Starting with the darkest card stock (in this card it's the Midnight Muse) adhere that piece to the base card with the fringe lined up on the bottom opening.

7.  Next piece of Midnight Muse, go up about 1/2" and adhere that piece.  Continue to do this with 5 of the 6 pieces of fringed layers, then STOP!

8.  On the piece of card stock that is NOT scored, stamp your sentiment.  Adhere THAT piece to the last piece (that is not attached to the card yet) of fringed card stock.  Take that layer and adhere it to your card.

9. Now yo have all the fringed pieces, it's time to embellish!  There are so many things you can do.  Go wild!

10.  Sit back, put your feet up and enjoy your creation!!!  You did great!

Ombre Technique Part 1 using Stampin’ Up! Product with Deb Valder

Hidy Ho Stampers,

I stumbled upon this technique which is not new but it was to me.  So I wanted to research and do a video history of all the ways you could use it.  So this card is the first in my series of Ombre cards.  First thing I did was look it up in the dictionary.  It sounded Spanish to me but it's actually a French word.  This is what it had to say "having colors or tones that shade into each other – used especially with fabrics in which the color is graduated from light to dark." Okay, no where did they mention PAPER!!!!  Well, Webster, you haven't met Stampin' Up!  so I'm here to show you what we can do with Ombre and card stock!  :0)

Ombre-Technique-off-the-grid-you're-amazing-masculine-birthday

soooooooo cool!

So here is how I did it…  If you are viewing this in your inbox, click here to see the video (grab some popcorn, put your feet up and enjoy – then go try it!)

 

Isn't that so cool?  I used colors from the Neutrals Family but

you can use different colors as long as they go from light to dark!

Then it can be called OMBRE!  :0)

REMINDERS!!!!!

Punch Art with Deb Valder

Hidy Ho Stampers and Gooooooooood Morning,

This past weekend I had my monthly stamping get together with the guys and gals in our stamping group.  They are so much fun!  Remember the highlights from last month?  We had our "Oscar Party".  We eat, we share, we stamp (of course) and we just have so much fun EVERY month.  One of the things that we do is a "card swap".  If you want to participate, there is a theme.  This month it was all about Punch Art.  If you participated, you had to make 24 full cards, stick to the theme and you have to use all current product.  My downline is so talented that I wanted to showcase just a a few of the swaps they brought!  (I just love my group).

Here is the Z fold to streamline your work!

These cards are so much fun and so addicting.  You can fill them with anything!!!  I've done one for a wedding, I've done one with a bouquet of GIFT CARDs for a bridal shower. The possibilities are ENDLESS!

As promised on my video, here are the measurements!  the 2-4-6-8 box has been around since the Caveman days, it's so easy and it's one of the first things I ever did 15 years ago (we just had a bottom to it which meant there was one more score line).  It lent itself to this project!

MEASUREMENTS:

Box: 

Cut piece of cardstock at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" (it's a half sheet of cardstock)

     Score this piece with the 5 1/2" side on top at 2 3/4"

Turn and with the 8 1/2" piece on top you are going to score to the MIDDLE LINE (at the 2 3/4" mark) and cut the rest of the way down

     Score at 2" then Cut

     Score at 4" then Cut

     Score at 6" then Cut

     Score at 8" then Cut

That's IT!!!  then put it together.

Insert:

Cut a piece at 2 3/4" x 8"

     Score at 1/2",   2 1/2",   3",   5"   5 1/2"   7 1/2"

     Fold into a Z with a flare (the ends of the Z are going to be going the opposite way) and POP it into your box.

Layered Pieces:

Back pieces – Cardstock 1 7/8" x 5 3/8"  and the DSP is 1 3/4" x 5 1/4"

Small Panels – Cardstock 1 7/8" x 2 5/8"  and the DSP is 1 3/4" x 2 1/2"
