Supplies I used:

Weekly Deals

Love my Markers. Of course, I love all my tools.

You have to remember, your tools make what you have, do so much more. I know some of you have told me, I have lots and lots of stamps. OK, I personally can never have too many but I still get it. However, adding a few tools to what you have can change the look and feel of your cards and projects. Of course a Big Shot can always add tons of texture and amazing looks. But what about punches. Even if it’s a simple punch. My card shows the Angled Tag Topper punch can give you a different look with multiple punched tags. How about the markers. I inked the top part of the Celebrate stamp in the Tuxedo Black ink and then colored each little word with the In-Color markers-huffed (adding hot moist air to the stamp) and stamped. THAT’S how you get the different colors on your stamps. Easy!

Right now, 2 of the Weekly Deals are the In-Color Marker packs, normally $14.95 but this week only, they are $11.21.

My Card idea today is featuring the 2014-2016 In-Colors and papers.

I used this same idea for my Monthly Online Stamp Club as well.

Have you seen this Beautiful Stamp?

The Lotus Blossom stamp set (#139143) is FREE with a $50 order right now, through Sale-A-Bration.

 

I have some tips for you for when you get this set.

But first, here are some Gorgeous card ideas.

Cutaway-Flower

Small-Flower-Cards

When using this set, there are three steps with the lotus flower, but you could use each one individually.

Three-Flower-stamps

I stamped three flower examples using all three stamps. After inking each stamp, I stamped directly onto the paper with all three.

Direct-Stamping

They look good, but the definition is not as clear.

Here is the Stamping off Technique using the 2-step stamping. You stamp the first flower, then the next, then ink up the third, stamp off onto scrap paper, then stamp onto your flower. You can see it is not as dark and the definition of the flower just “pops”.

Three-Beautiful-Flowers

As you can see I stamped off lots of samples:

Paper-Scraps

As you can see on the stamps, the flowers are numbered 1, 2, and 3.

123

If you want the stem to be perfectly vertical, like I have in my pictures above, then you need to place the flower stamps with “tail” arrows facing upward.

Place-tail-arrow-upward

Ink up your stamp and place on paper.

Step-1-flower

Ink up second stamp and place on top stamped image.

Step-2

And your last steps-Ink up the third stamp and then stamp off on scrap paper, Then stamp on top of image on paper.

Olaf Card

Are you a fan of Frozen?

I will admit I am but just a little. Not like the kids 8 and under. My youngest daughter, Addie, has just recently become a real fan. At Christmas she received the Elsa and Anna Dolls from Santa which she really wanted.

But who doesn’t Love Olaf! That fun Frozen snow fellow created by Elsa.

Here is my paper version that I made for a Party that Addie went to a year ago at the beginning of the Frozen craze.

I figured since the polar freeze (-8 when I began writing this) has entered our area of Wisconsin, this would be be a fun post for today.

Punched-Olaf-Card-in-A-BoxIt’s Olaf-Card In a box.

Don’t forget to visit my site tomorrow-because SALE-A-BRATION begins, January 6th-March 31st 2015! Plus, the New Occasions Catalog will go live!

Lots of ideas to share this month.

Until then,

ENJOY!

2015-Happy New Year

Whoo Hoo. A Chance to start over. New Beginnings. A Fresh Start. The Slate is wiped clean. Resolutions. Goals.

However you start the year, do it with Gusto!

I always start the year with Goals. One of them is to make more videos for my blog.

Check.

Well, “one” is a start.

It’s been a LOOONG time since I made a video. I recently updated my programs on my Mac and it took me at “least” an hour just to figure out how to edit my video. Now, my Camera. My Camera decided to poop out 6 months ago, and Don tried to fix (No, No Duck Tape involved) but he did drill and make a new hole to put a tiny Allen wrench in to hold the door (that houses the batteries and card) closed. NICE! but it lasted with my use only 3 months. My gift for Christmas was a new Nikon Coolpix-2013 version (2 years newer than my last coolpix) but it was only $40. It works, pictures and video look better too. So, I am a Happy Camper once again.

Now, on to my 1st project of the New Year.

 Just another little something I made for people that stop over during the first week of The New Year. It’s an easy treat box that can be folded ahead of the time and then lay flat in a drawer until you need them.

Cute-Happy-New-Year-Box

Inside-box

Dimensions for this Nifty little box are:

Base of box is 6″ X 6″ C.S. scored at 2″ on each side.

The lid is 3 7/16″ x 3 7/16″. Score at 1/2 on each side.

Supplies I used:

There are so many fun projects to be had with this Envelope punch board tool. It’s sooo much more than just a tool for making Envelopes as you can see.
+++++Only a few days away from one of our biggest sales-SALE-A BRATION as well as our Occasion Catalog launch. So Exciting. If you need any of these catalogs, contact me by email and I will get one to you.+++
ENJOY!
