Facebook Live Replay & Card Details 3.18.18

www.AStampAbove.com

WOWZERS! I have a jam packed video for you - just in case you missed it Sunday night on my Facebook page. I'm featuring the BLACK ICE TECHNIQUE - sooooooo amazing! You'll be able to watch the full unedited version here: 

 

 

Here are the first two cards I made - you'll find all the details for both of them on my blog post from yesterday:

FLORAL BLACK ICE CARDS DETAILS

  

www.AStampAbove.com

Here's my BLUE ICE  card! I used the COUNTRY LIVIN' stamp set for this one:

www.AStampAbove.com

Dimensions:

  • Island Indigo 5-1/2" x 8-1/2"
  • Basic Black 4-7/8" x 3-5/8"
  • Silver Foil Sheets 4-3/4" x 3-1/2"
  • Whisper White 1/2" x 3-1/2"

Love the details in this photo!

STYLIZED BIRTHDAY is my favorite birthday greeting!

Fullsizeoutput_964

And oh my the COPPER FOIL!!!! I love this stunning beach scene. 

www.AStampAbove.com

Dimensions:

  • Crushed Curry 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" & scrap
  • Bermuda Bay 4" x 5-1/4"
  • Copper Foil Sheets scrap

 

www.AStampAbove.com

This might be my favorite!!! The copper foil and the BLACK ICE technique gives the illusion of a beautiful beach scene. I also ran another layer of Copper Foil through the Big Shot in the BASKET WEAVE embossing folder. The COUNTRY LIVIN' set provided my guitar. I just stamped it on Bermuda Bay cardstock with black ink and fussy cut it.

The light is hitting this one just right....love this:

Stampers Dozen Blog Hop - Let's Sale-a-Brate Again!

www.AStampAbove.com

 

You might have just arrived from Joanne Cantrell's blog or you might be starting here. The STAMPERS DOZEN BLOG HOP is bringing you projects made with the 2nd release of Sale-a-Bration products - SO MUCH FUN!!! There are 3 different products in this 2nd release:

  • Eclectic Expressions stamp set 
  • Springtime Foil Specialty Designer Series Paper, and
  • Blossoming Basket Bundle (stamp set & embossing folder)

You'll find the 2ND RELEASE SALE-A-BRATION BROCHURE HERE

 

I chose to use the BLOSSOMING BASKET BUNDLE for my cards for a couple fun techniques. First I used ink on the BASKET WEAVE Embossing Folder and then I did a little 3-D effect with the flowers in my basket.

www.AStampAbove.com

You'll find a video tutorial for both of the techniques here with lots of tips:

If the video doesn't play - click HERE to watch it on my blog.

Dimensions:

  • Crumb Cake 11" x 4-1/4" scored at 5-1/2"
  • Whisper White 4-3/4" x 3-1/2"
  • Pumpkin Pie 4-7/8" x 3-5/8"

Below is a view showing how intricate the flowers look when you stack them:

www.AStampAbove.com

For the inside I colored another flower in with the Pumpkin Pie Stampin' Blends, cut it out and glued it in place on the 4" x 5-1/4" Whisper White layer:


Fullsizeoutput_918

Here's a good view of the flowers on this one:


www.AStampAbove.com

This layout is pretty in Daffodil Delight too!


www.AStampAbove.com

And another close up - isn't this pretty?


www.AStampAbove.com

Here's what happens when you put too much ink on your embossing folder - don't do this - LOL!


Fullsizeoutput_918

The sample above is with the ink applied to the side of the folder with the Stampin' Up! logo on it. The sample below is when the ink is applied to the other inside panel.

I can't wait to send these cards out!!! They are sooo pretty!

HOW TO GIVE YOUR CAT A PILL:

1) Pick cat up and cradle it in the crook of your left arm as if holding a baby. Position right forefinger and thumb on either side of cat's mouth and gently apply pressure to cheeks while holding pill in right hand. As cat opens mouth, pop pill into mouth. Allow cat to close mouth and swallow.

2) Retrieve pill from floor and cat from behind sofa. Cradle cat in left arm and repeat process.

3) Retrieve cat from bedroom, and throw soggy pill away.

4) Take new pill from foil wrap, cradle cat in left arm, holding rear paws tightly with left hand. Force jaws open and push pill to back of mouth with right forefinger. Hold mouth shut for a count of ten.

5) Retrieve pill from goldfish bowl and cat from top of wardrobe. Call spouse from garden.

6) Kneel on floor with cat wedged firmly between knees, hold front and rear paws. Ignore low growls emitted by cat. Get spouse to hold head firmly with one hand while forcing wooden ruler into mouth. Drop pill down ruler and rub cat's throat vigorously.

7) Retrieve cat from curtain rail, get another pill from foil wrap. Make note to buy new ruler and repair curtains. Carefully sweep shattered figurines and vases from hearth and set to one side for gluing later.

8) Wrap cat in large towel and get spouse to lie on cat with head just visible from below armpit. Put pill inside end of drinking straw, force mouth open with pencil and blow down drinking straw.

9) Check label to make sure pill is not harmful to humans, drink 1 beer to take taste away. Apply Band-Aid to spouse's forearm and remove blood from carpet with cold water and soap.

10) Retrieve cat from neighbor's shed. Get another pill. Open another beer. Place cat in cupboard, and close door onto neck, to leave head showing. Force mouth open with dessert spoon. Flick pill down throat with elastic band.

11) Fetch screwdriver from garage and put cupboard door back on hinges. Drink beer. Fetch bottle of scotch. Pour shot, drink. Apply cold compress to cheek and check records for date of last tetanus shot. Apply whiskey compress to cheek to disinfect. Toss back another shot. Throw T- shirt away and fetch new one from bedroom.

12) Call fire brigade to retrieve the BLEEPING cat from tree across the road. Apologize to neighbor who crashed into fence while swerving to avoid cat. Take last pill from foil-wrap.

13) Tie the little BLEEP's front paws to rear paws with garden twine and bind tightly to leg of dining table, find heavy duty pruning gloves from shed. Push pill into mouth followed by large piece of steak filet. Be rough about it. Hold head vertically and pour 2 pints of water down throat to wash pill down.

14) Consume remainder of Scotch. Get spouse to drive you to the emergency room, sit quietly while doctor stitches fingers and forearm and remove pill remnants from right eye. Call furniture shop on way home to order new table.

15) Arrange for RSPCA to collect "mutant cat from hell" and call local pet shop to see if they have any hamsters.
