Fancy Fold - Marble Technique Birthday Card

Happy Monday!

Hello friends, I hope you had a great weekend! Mine was a busy one with being a taxi driver for my girls and on Sunday I had our monthly meeting with my team!! It was AMAZING and I can't wait to share some picture and details with you this week!!!

My project today is one that we created last month at technique class. Our focus for the night was the utterly cool Marble Technique. Honestly, when I was showing them this technique, I felt like I was 10 again playing a game of marbles with my friends. Do you remember doing that? I remember spending hours looking at all the different style and patterns on each and every marble!!

My card today is a fun Fancy Fold, not sure what you call this one, but I'm going to call it a Pop up card!! As the magic happens when you open this card!!!

IMG_6636

When you open this card, the hammer magically appears in the bottom right corner! This is one of those card that you just stand there opening and closing the card, just to watch the hammer appear!

Tips and Tricks for my card:

  • Basic Grey reinker, marbles and a wood clear mount case is all you need to do this technique. Add a few drops of reinker in your wood clear mount case. Add your marbles and shake up to spread the ink around. Add a piece of paper to the wood case and close the lid. Once again, shake the case moving the marbles around to create an unique pattern on your white paper! The trick with this technique is only a few small drops of ink, as you want it to be even spread out.
  • Sadly the Nail It Bundle, and the Urban Underground Designer Specialty Paper is sold out. But not to worry, you can easily switch up the pattern paper for another one along with the images. There are lots of great guys stamp set out there like Guy Greeting, and One Wild Ride!!
  • The Birthday greeting is from the Birthday Bright stamp set

Marble Technique - Nail it Bundle

Hello,

My project today is a oldie but fun technique. My friend Angie McKay from North Shore Stamper reminder me of this fun technique and I couldn't wait to give it a try!! I knew it would be the perfect technique for this month's technique class!!

I had the Nail It Bundle sitting on my desk and wanted to use it for my project!! I bought this set as it reminds me so much of Corrie...he sure did love his tools and often told me that you need a variety of tools to complete the job!!! This card is for my lovely husband and I'm sure he is up there in heaven fixing things for others!

Tips and Tricks on my project:

  • The Nail It Bundle is perfect stamp set and matching framelits for the men in your lives!
  • The Hexagon Dymanic Impression Folder adds the perfect touch and dimension to your project
  • Basic Grey reinker, marbles and a wood clear mount case is all you need to do this technique. Add a few drops of reinker in your wood clear mount case. Add your marbles and shake up to spread the ink around. Add a piece of paper to the wood case and close the lid. Once again, shake the case moving the marbles around to create an unique pattern on your white paper! The trick with this technique is only a few small drops of ink, as you want it to be even spread out.
  • Stamp the screw driver and cut out with matching framelit, and then colour with Delightful Dijon and Smoky Slate marker 
  • My pattern paper is the Urban Underground Specialty Paper - sad news, it's already sold out

The sad news is the Nail It Bundle is on the retiring list and will be leaving us at the end of May. And the sad part is that its already SOLD out which doesn't surprise me as it was a great bundle!!! I have to tell you that this is one bundle that I will be keeping as it reminds me too much of Corrie!!

This is a great way to use up scraps pieces of designer series paper! I'm sure you are like me and keep every little piece as we know that we can use it for something later on!! 

Tips and Tricks on my Project:

  • Designer Series Paper is Moroccan. This beautiful Eastern Palette has gorgeous rich colours in it
  • The colours are Delightful Dijon, Early Espresso, Whisper White and Emerald Envy
  • The greeting is from the All Things Thanks stamp set
  • The ribbon is the Delightful Dijon 5/8" Mini Striped Ribbon, and best tip is that this ribbon looks like gold when it's on your project!
  • Scallop Circle is from the Layering Circle Framelits 
  • The Circle is from the Stitched Shaped Framelits

Can you spot the retired items on my card? There are lots of items that are retiring like the Moroccan Designer Series Paper, Delightful Dijon Card Stock, Ink Pad, and Ribbon. Items are flying off the shelf like crazy and many of the Retiring Incolours are sold out especially like the Reinkers!!!

Last Day of Sale a Bration!!

Hello,

I can't believe that today is the last day of Sale a Bration!! You still have time to order your favourite Sale a Bration they are gone for good tonight!!

My project today is one that my bestie friend Michelle made a few weeks ago! She was here one night and want to get me back to stamping. So we made this card!!!

IMG_6624

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So the crazy part of this whole card was that it took her over an hour to cut out each individual hexagon as she wanted to make it look like Chicken Wire!! This card has been a highlight in my studio...the ladies love it!!! 

The funny part after she was done making this card which took her over an hour to make, I told her that I would like 20 more and of course Michelle just laughed at me!!!

Tips on this card: 

  • Michelle inked up the Hexagon Impression folder with Black Memento ink and they ran a piece of paper through the Big Shot. 
  • Then she took a pair of Paper snip and cut out each hexagon to make it look like Chicken Wire
  • Then she cut out the middle of the hexagon as she wanted it to look like her chick was in the middle of the card!

Remember you only have till 11:50 pm tonight to place your last order for Sale a Bration. I have an order going tonight at 8 pm if you would like to add it!! Remember you can also earn Sweet Rewards on your orders placed with me!!

Vertical Garden Hello Card

Hello,

Last week my friend Heather came for a visit and we had some fun stamping. I wanted to make some cards to have on hand so we had fun playing with the Vertical Garden stamp set.  Did you know that  this stamp set coordinates with the Vertical Garden Project Kit. I love when you can use product in other ways!

I was working on a few other projects on my desk and decided that I need to use the Glimmer paper! I was looking for some bling on my card.

I want to highlight a few items that you can earn for FREE during Sale a Bration. Sale a Bration is quickly coming to a close and we only have 11 more days to earn FREE products, or earn 2 FREE stamp set when you join my community of stampers!!

Details of my card:

  • I used Sugarplum, Black and Whisper White as my colour combination
  • I decided not to colour the Inside the Line Designer Series Paper, as I love the look that it created uncoloured
  • I used the Sugarplum Glimmer paper for my strip
  • I stamp the Hello in Sugarplum ink
  • Add Rhinestones for a little bling 

Unfortunately, Stampin' Up announced that the Glimmer paper is already sold out along with the Tin of Cards.
