FOH share.....Five Way FLower

This could be made using either the gumball or pistachio ink..love it with the mambo...think if I did it again, I would try to find a marker similar to mambo color and color the pearl with that permanent marker...
LOVE LOVE LOVE the new embossing folder...
The gumball section is popped up...simple but gorgeous combination of color....

Stippled Blossoms share...FOH

Although this was done using retired cardstock(certainly celery..it looks brighter in this picture...lol)....it would be wonderful with baked brown sugar and pistachio....it would be a little softer ...used the new stripped folder and used the lattice embossing folder....

This was one of the cards for the FROM OUR HEARTS soldier card ministry....used celery and baked brown sugar on this....

This was my card originally....loved it for the most part....but not the space when I stamped the coral on the outside so had to rethink...
So I decided to put some sand near the coral...just a sliver...
 then the embossed piece was trimmed even with the circle...
 and did trim the top so it wouldn't show when the card was closed...great job....lol.....the background for the fish was a dried piece of shaving cream method on Whisper White....I also used the marker to draw a few lines to connect the coral...from the inside to the outside coral....blended better...
Now when you look at the card closed it looks great....lol

Tutorial forQuick Gift card holder...(Christmas or whatever)

 

 

This was a tag I created using the Long dress form die....


I took the same die and idea and it works for a gift card also...the gift card can be put in with sticky tape (don't tape the magnetic strip though...lol)
Below I will explain the quick tutorial, and then show a few quick samples ....will work on more samples for Friday's post...

Cut your cardstock 5 1/2 x 4 1/4....after cutting with the die , I scored it at  2 10/16ths....yours will depend on how close you cut it...(.I am trying to cover all my dies in contact or vinyl to be easier to see and mark)  Below is part of the long die...I marked the edge so I could line all of them up the same....
 Put your cardstock on the die....the cut opening of the die is 4 1/4 so all you have to do is put the paper in the well.....
This will be the amount that is left over when you remove the paper from the one side....
Then you put it through the second time and line it up with the opposite side...what you are seeing is the amount left over after the cut
Here are my samples.....used the stripe new embossing folder in the holiday mini..
 YEAH!!!! Gift card fits ..perfectly!!
 Here is another sample....
 It didn't show up too well with white on white so took a second picture of the same thing...
the last one is using the other new embossing folder in the holiday mini with the cherry cobbler coordinations paper....
 
A quick aside....I did try my big shot plates in a 325 oven for 20 minutes and mine were totally warped...near cracking....I have an ooooollllllddddd oven but here is the picture of them wrapped in foil with a pyrex dish on top and the end result...all flat...YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
what I REALLY needed to do is take the before picture of all the warped plates....lol...oh well....too late...lol

This is a wonderful male card....
The 2 1/2 circle white area was brayered and sponged at the bottom and sponged with a template for the sky area...yes, you are not seeing things...there is a green spot on the sky....guess my sponge or ink pad had a little from something...really like this card...it screams MALE...lol

 The blank space could have been masked and stamped....
 I tried several times to get a good picture of this but no luck....if I had it to do over again...I would have put a cake here....lol

One of the cards I am doing at a crop

I completed  this about a month ago ...it was really a case from this card...but a different twist...didn't want to use the black and white as I did on this one
after this was made for a class I am teaching in October....I saw  Patty did a card using the same set but a little different....I might like hers a little better...

some brayering

The skyline is wonderful on this card...I am so so about the water area...although in person ....not too bad....lol   The background is really pretty on this card...did the zindorf method with the brayering...using mostly soft sky and a little marina mist....white gel pen is used in the reflection end....
Used the thumbing method for the colors on the tree and did a little sponging on the ground part

one on one swap...brayer or direct to paper

Ended up doing the direct to paper and some sponging on this card...will use it up the road for a fall class
This was done using the direct to paper technique...used soft sky and then marina mist for the backgound....sponged the leaf background with a scallop and used soft sky...the leaves are thumped with markers and then sponged and then used the black ink for the two part stamp method...

catalog case ..Eastern Elegance DSP

This is a case of the card in the catty on page 110
 my strips are cut 1 x 3 and then on a diagonal...suggest stamping first and then you can figure out how you want to place your strips...
 close up ...I embossed some but chose not to stamp on any of them...
