FEATURE FRIDAY VIDEO - Pull Card

DSCN0588W

 

I have a fun card for you today - a PULL CARD using the NAILED IT BUNDLE and the HAPPY CELEBRATIONS with the DUO CELEBRATIONS embossing folder. This is a fun folder the when used leaves a "debased" image so you can stamp over top of it and it'll leave the word unlinked. Super cool right?

Watch my video to see how to make one of your own:

  

If the video doesn't play...sometimes buttons lose their magical features when you're viewing them in your email inbox...just click HERE or on the title of the blog post "FEATURE FRIDAY VIDEO" and you can watch it on my blog!

Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week

Only 2 days left of Sale-a-Bration!!!

It ends on 3/31 - don't miss out!

 

Wait What

 

VIDEO COVER - EPISODE 30

I hope you were able to get yourself some of this FREE ribbon...OH MY...it is soooo gorgeous and when you dye it whatever color you want it...it's GORGEOUS AND AMAZING!!! Check out my quick video tip and see for yourself: 

  

Isn't this pretty? I dyed this one in Flirty Flamingo and then decided to use Watermelon Wonder for the card. And it matches up really good right? This metallic ribbon is soooo beautiful in real life - photos just don't do it justice. And then when you die it - the metallic threads really pop to make it spectacular! You get one roll of each (gold and silver) when you choose this as your FREE Sale-a-Bration item - 14 yards total!

 

AAA

You can see the sparkle from the metallic threads above.

 

Aaa2

 

Let's talk a little bit about the card...I found this layout online on several different cards and decided I loved it! It's pretty neat looking with the slanted layer across the front right? This card below is made with Wisteria Wonder embossed in the PETAL BURST embossing folder and I used Elegant Eggplant ink to dye my ribbon.

Tips:

  • The Crumb Cake layer is 2-1/2 x 8-1/2.
  • I stamped the HAPPY BIRTHDAY right in the center using Memento Ink.
  • Colored it in with markers (Pear Pizzazz & Wisteria Wonder or Watermelon Wonder)
  • I laid it across my embossed layer with the tip of the bottom left at the corner and the top right at the corner.
  • Glue it in place and then turn your layers over to cut off the excess.
  • Add some Clear Wink of Stella to your flowers to make them glimmer (it's those little extra things right?)
  • Super easy!

 

Aaa3

 

Here's the inside - super pretty too!!!

 

Aaa4

 

Here's a close up of the Elegant Eggplant ribbon - BEE-U-TEE-FUL!

 

Aaa5

DIMENSIONS:

  • Whisper White Thick Cardstock 4-1/4 x 11 - scored at 5-1/2
  • Wisteria Wonder or Watermelon Wonder 4 x 5-1/4
  • Crumb Cake 2-1/2 x 8-1/2

All about the Bees!

Only 3 days left of Sale-a-Bration

Don't miss it!!! If you order this bundle and some Dimensionals or a couple spools of the Metallic Thread - you qualify for a FREE item from the brochures shown down below - IT'S A WIN WIN!!! I recommend the 3/8" Metallic Ribbon Combo Pack shown on page 11 in the brochure...(INSIDER INFO: because you're going to LOVE my tip video tomorrow...where I'll be doing something amazing with the ribbon!!!)

 

Blog4

 

Isn't this soft and pretty? A beautiful card made by my downline Rose Grunewald - can you believe she just started stamping last summer??? And for the most part - this card is brought to us by the DRAGONFLY DREAMS bundle! YEP - except for the flower - the other images are from that bundle...which I love! I don't know if you could tell or not - LOL!!!

I love how Rose stamped the solid bee images for her background - genius!!!

 

Blog2

That gorgeous flower is from the SUNSHINE WISHES set of thinlits...a complete product list is shown down below.

Instructions:

  1. Using So Saffron, stamp the solid bee from the Dragonfly Dreams set in a random pattern on the So Saffron card front0
  2. Adhere So Saffron card front to Basic Black piece
  3. Die cut the flower from the Sunshine Wishes Dies and the Bee from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits in Basic Black & adhere to the card front
  4. Wrap the Metallic Black Thread around the layered card front 5 times and secure with tape on the back
  5. Stamp your sentiment in basic black on a scrap of So Saffron – snip around each word to separate them.
  6. Adhere the snipped words to scraps of Basic Black and snip to frame each So Saffron piece. Attach the layered words to the card front using dimensionals
  7. Adhere card front to card base
  8. Stamp the inside of your card with the solid bee in So Saffron diagonally across the card.
  9. In Basic Black, stamp the birthday sentiment in the middle of the inside of the card (over the diagonal bees)

 

This inside greeting is from BALLOON ADVENTURES:

Blog5

 

The BLACK METALLIC THREAD is so subtle under the little words...but really adds a lot to the card...just that little something extra can take a card from a ten to a ten + don't you think? We have METALLIC THREAD in gold, silver and copper!

 

Blog3

Dimensions:  

  • So Saffron – 4 ¼” x 11”, score and fold at 5 ½”; 3 ¾” x 5”; scrap
  • Basic Black – 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”; Scrap

Feature Friday Video - Cake Crazy!

DSCN0430W

 

Talk about getting caught with my pants down...that's what I feel like!!! I made this video a couple weeks ago and then waited to post it - WHAT WAS I THINKING??? While you can't get this Glimmer Paper anymore (it's sold out) - I did show you how to make your own color Glimmer Paper on my Wednesday tip video - you can find that HERE.

So I decided to share the video with you anyways - because the stamp set and color combination is awesome! This card uses the CAKE CRAZY stamp set - one of those sets that stampers have been overlooking in the Occasions Mini Catalog. You get 22 different images in this set and they can all be easily stamped in different colors for a card full of fun! 

 

 

I made these cards using Island Indigo & Sweet Sugarplum, Mint Macaron & Pacific Point and Elegant Eggplant and Bermuda Bay:

Wait...WHAT? & Joke of the Week

Wait What
 

Well....you've all heard that the GLIMMER PAPER STACK is all gone right? That's a real bummer for everyone! I was so disappointed because I have an adorable project ready to roll for my FEATURE FRIDAY VIDEO that uses the Glimmer Paper...sniff sniff. Then I remembered something I did "way back when" and came up with a great solution! Make your own Colored Glimmer Paper - WHAT??? That's right! Check out my video and make some for yourself:

A Joke

 

 Jack decided to go skiing with his buddy, Dan. So they loaded up Jack's minivan and headed north. After driving for a few hours, they got caught in a terrible blizzard. So they pulled into a nearby farm and asked the attractive lady who answered the door if they could spend the night.

'I realize it's terrible weather out there and I have this huge house all to myself, but I'm recently widowed,' she explained. 'I'm afraid the neighbors will talk if I let you stay in my house.'

'Don't worry,' Jack said, 'We'll be happy to sleep in the barn. And if the weather breaks, we'll be gone at first light.'

The lady agreed, and the two men found their way to the barn and settled in for the night.

Come morning, the weather had cleared, and they got on their way. They enjoyed a great weekend of skiing.

But about nine months later, Jack got an unexpected letter from an attorney.
It took him a few minutes to figure it out, but he finally determined that it was from the attorney of that attractive widow he had met on the ski weekend.

He dropped in on his friend Dan and asked, "Dan, do you remember that good-looking widow from the farm we stayed at on our ski holiday up north about nine months ago?"

"Yes I do," said Dan.

"Did you, um, happen to get up in the middle of the night, go up to the house and pay her a visit?"

"Um, well, yes," Dan said, a little embarrassed about being found out, "I have to admit that I did."

"And did you happen to give her my name instead of telling her your name?"

Dan's face turned beet red and he said, "Yeah, look, I'm sorry, buddy. I'm afraid I did. Why do you ask?"

"She just died and left me everything."
