Birthday Shaker Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

There is nothing better than sprinkles on ice cream or inside your “Shaker Card” … and that is what I have for you today! The Shaker card was a hit at my house, my grandkids like to pick out the cards I should send them … lol!! I like to surprise them ❤

I used the Ice Cream Corner Designer paper as my background and to punch out my Ice Cream Cone …

The background is from the Ice Cream Corner Designer Paper … I picked the sprinkle design. I cut my window out of the Bermuda Bay using the Rectangle Layered Dies, and then attached the window sheet to the back. Once the window sheet is attached I used the Adhesive Strips to create the height needed for the “shaker”.

You have the greeting stamped … I used the “Happy Birthday” from the bundle and then sprinkled my “Ice Cream Corner Sprinkles” onto the greeting and laid the window sheet assembly on top. With a little adhesive, I attached the “shaker” to the card.

I punched out the Ice Cream and the Cone from the Designer paper!! It was designed to make creating your cones easier!! I attached it directly to the “shaker”…

Easy to see why this fun shaker card was a hit!! And another sample for you made with the Sweet Ice Cream bundle!

Thanks much for hanging out with me today, I hope you have a good one!

Happy Hearts Card …

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have two techniques in one card for you; the Chalkboard technique and the “Coloring Embossed Images” … and together they just pop off the page! This is the card I created for my technique Tuesday LIVE last night, but I have a surprise … I have the other card that I suggested on the video! I am using the PUNCH PARTY stamp set again.

Kick back for a moment and watch the video (only about 20-25minutes) …

Such fun and easy techniques that together really make the card pop. The second card that you see is using the technique of coloring the “mat” multiple colors … I think it turned out pretty good. I just ran the Stampin’ Blends around the edge of the mat and then I ran the “Color Lifter” over it all to lighten and blend the colors together better.

Before placing the heart down onto the card, I wrapped some of the Bakers Twine from the “Snailed It” suite just to added a little extra texture and fun to the card. I really do like how the multicolored “mat” turned out… it draws your eye all around the card!

I hope you enjoyed today’s technique share and that you give it a try! It really is as easy as it looks, and you end up with a colorful FUN Card!

Thank you so much for joining me today, I’d love to hear what you think about these two techniques.

Have yourself a day that “makes your heart happy” ~

Guest Stamper: Deb Anderson

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have another “DRAPERY FOLD” card for you … from Deb Anderson. Deb caught my Facebook LIVE demonstration on the Drapery Fold and was inspired to try it out … and she shared this sample with me ….

Deb used the Snowflake Splendor Designer Series paper for her card …

It is fairly simple to make and does not need a lot of supplies, and it’s fun! It give you a touch of “fanciness” on your card but slides into the envelope quite easy.

I have a video for you to watch, my Technique Tuesday video from my Facebook LIVE last night. Have a bit of a rest and watch the video …

What did you think … ?? This is the type of card that looks fancy but is pretty easy to make. Any designer paper could be used for this style of card. I chose to use the Poinsettia Place suite… such a pretty pattern and a natural background to accent the fold.

I have written down the measurements for you ….

I also showcased both cards in the photo … the one on the left is the one where the drapery fits from end to end, and the one on the right is the one I trimmed off to create a border all the way around my card front.

I hope I inspired you to try out this simple yet pretty “FUN FOLD”, then I’d LOVE to see what you create.

Have yourself a wonderful day, and thank you for spending part of it with me.

Reverse Masking Technique with Winter Woods

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I have my video to share with you today … I am demonstrating the “Reverse Masking” technique and highlighting two different mediums you can use to create your reverse mask! I also have some additional stamping tips to share with you. Sit back and enjoy the video …

What a fun and easy technique this is …. It’s an oldie but a goodie!! I love how this technique creates depth to your card without all the layers and hazzle! Which one of the mediums to do this technique do you prefer? The sponge daubers or the brush? The Blending Brushes will be available in the upcoming Jan – June Mini catalog!

I used Shaded Spruce for my sponging and for the tree and of course it is the main color of our designer paper which comes from the Wonder of the Season and is called the “Tis the Season” 6 x 6, and is layered onto the Basic Black card base.

The Tree and Greeting both come from the Winter Woods stamp set … it was Hot, Hot, Hot last year but I think it’s the perfect year round stamp set!

A little piece of the extra designer paper was adhered inside to coordinate our entire card. The pretty gold edged Real Read ribbon is from the All the Trimmings Ribbon Combo pack.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and checking it out.

Have a beautiful day ~

Mirror Image Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share my Facebook Live video and card that I created using the Stampartus and highlighting the Mirror Image Technique. You will discover the “secret” or simple trick to creating the Mirror Image.

I’m also very excited to share with you that Stampin’ Up! has extended the Online Extravaganza until Midnight (MT) tomorrow!

Sit back, grab your coffee and enjoy the short video …

The video explains the steps that I took to come up with the size and layout of the stamped area… and also explains the background I’ve used. It is actually one of the backgrounds I demonstrated the Embossing Paste with last week!

Let’s get a closer look at the card …

Our cute giraffes come from the Zoo Globe stamp set, and our verbiage come from the Well Said stamp sets.

The background was created with the Shimmery White Embossing paste and the masks … you can watch the video HERE.

Now before we go … lets take a look at the layering and see how amazing a few Stampin’ Dimensionals can change up a card! Besides the beautiful texture you get from the Embossing paste, you ‘ll get great dimension and height.

I hope you enjoyed today’s card and are inspired to try this fun technique. Please don’t forget that all of the items used in today’s card are available in the Online Extravaganza (with the exception of the Memento Ink) …

With hundreds of items On Sale … I’d be happy to help you with your Holiday Shopping List.

Frosted Impressions Technique!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have the coolest technique to share with you, and it is so simple you will ask yourself “why” you didn’t think of it myself? lol This technique is called Frosted Impressions.

You will need your window sheets, an embossing folder and an embossing machine, I tried out the new Stampin’ Cut & Emboss by Stampin’ Up! I love it’s size, the smooth roll and the fact that each plate is numbered (I’ll share more about that another time). I used the “Cobwebs” embossing folder …

I emboss your Window sheet with your favorite folder and then use sand paper to create the “frosted” look. Watch my short video to see exactly how I did this …

Wasn’t that simple? And it’s so cool … Emboss, sand, and you have a cool background!! I thought the spider webs were appropriate for upcoming holiday … but I truly believe those snowflakes in the mini catalog would be stunning.

I used the many of the components from the Magic in this Night Suite; I’ll have a list for you below.

Pinwheel Technique & Heartwarming Hugs!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I have two cute cards for you created with the Heartwarming Hugs Designer Series paper and the Pinwheel Technique. This technique is a great way to use up your designer and / or paper scraps!

This paper crafting technique is much, much easier than it looks … quite simple in fact, and I’d like to show you today …

How did you enjoy the demonstration and do you think it’s as easy to make as I said it would be? I think this technique is one of those timeless cards that we can keep bringing back!!

This first card is the one I demonstrated and includes the Heartwarming Hugs designer series as a background and the Light Me Home stamp set used for the greeting. I also tipped the Pinwheel to look a little more like a star.

The second card …

This was designed for those stampers who like the “less is more” look … a clean, crisp look. The Pinwheel really stands out against the white background.

The greeting comes from the “Itty Bitty Christmas” stamp set, and with the aid of my Stamparatus … I could stamp it 3 times to get it bold and bright. Once stamped, I embossed it with the Subtle 3-D embossing folder.

Here is the template with dimension for the Pinwheel card …

I hope the card samples inspire you and the layout helps you picture your next card! As promised in the video, I have a PDF File attached that you can download and print.

CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD PINWHEEL PDF

Thank you so much for joining me today. Stop back tomorrow as I will be sharing an alternative layout to the Pinwheel card.

Have an amazing day ~

Wednesday Wow: Watercoloring with Acrylic Blocks

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’ll be sharing my Facebook Live presentation of Watercoloring with Acrylic Blocks and the three cards I created using this technique. Last night I shared two of the three cards. Kick back and watch the video, you’ll see how these cards found their beginnings …

The first was my quick -n- cute Halloween card from the Festive Corners stamp set. I used the Stampin’ Write markers to apply the ink to the block and then spritzed it with water.

I’m using the Festive Corners stamp set …. again!!

The second card I created using the markers on the Acrylic Blocks features the Dandelion Wishes stamp set and the markers to create a background.

My colors are Balmy Blue, Pool Party, Bermuda Bay and Pear Pizzazz …

I used my Stamparatus for my sentiment, it allows my to ink it several times so it’s nice and dark and becomes the focal point of the card.

The second way to use this “Watercolor” technique on the Acrylic Blocks is to put the ink from the ink pad directly onto the blocks. It is applied thicker so the image will be bolder …

I used the Arrange the Wreath bundle and the Magic in this Night Designer Series paper to create this card. The fall leaves surrounding the greeting creates the perfect focal point for this card. Leaf colors are Pretty Peacock, Blackberry Bliss and Cajun Craze which coordinates with the designer paper.

If you watched the video … you know that each week I do a drawing from all the people who watched and commented on the video … I invite you to join us next week Tuesday for another Technique! Here’s the prizes …

I miss meeting with all my stamping friends face to face, so the Facebook Live seems to get me a little closer to my friends!

Here is one last look at the three cards I created with this FUN technique …

The Watercolor technique using Acrylic Blocks can be used for any one, any stamp set … any holiday! Just look, we have a “Get Well”, a “Halloween” and a “Card of Thanks”.

Thank you for joining me today. I’d like to know how you enjoyed today’s cards…

Have a wonderful day!

Technique: Spotlighting Christmas

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I will be sharing my cards created with the “Light Me Home” stamp set using the Spotlight Technique. Spotlighting is a stamping technique that highlights a small section of your stamped image.

When creating cards using the spotlight technique, you will be stamping your image twice; one for your main image or background, and the second which will be cut or punched to create your spotlighted area.

Grab a cup of coffee or your favorite beverage and join me as I share how I created three cards with the “spotlight” technique. This is my Facebook Live video from last night …

I am sharing all three of the cards that I did last night while doing the Facebook Live presentation. I stamped several of the backgrounds using my Stamparatus and then colored on one of them to create several cards. Here is the first of three …

All of my “spotlighted” areas are popped up using Stampin’ Dimensionals, just adds to the fun! It’s always nice to add some dimension and texture to your cards.

After my first card was done … I punched out the two other areas of the colored piece with my circle punch to create even more cards! I was able to get 3 cards from stamping the image 4 times with the Stamparatus. Didn’t you like how quick and easy that was to use?

I punched out the wreath for a spotlight and then used Real Red for the mat and Old Olive for the card base… this really brought out the colors used in the wreath.

On the “From Our House to Yours” … I highlighted the path to the home and used Basic Black for the mat and Smokey Slate for the card base (and the sidewalk that I colored with my Stampin’ Blends).

Because there was not a lot of color in this card, I added a touch of Smoky Slate to the light post and to stamp my greeting on … this was three pops of color, yet the sidewalk is highlighted. The Shimmery Crystal Effects also makes our “Spotlights” pop!!

This technique brings simple stamping up a level but with ease, and it plays well with the Stamparatus.

I hope this inspires you to try out the “Spotlighting” technique … feel free to send me your creation, I’d love to share them here on my blog! And I invite you to join me each Tuesday on my Linda’s Stampin’ Escape Facebook page to watch LIVE and get in on the prize drawings …

Free As A Bird: Spotlighting Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share a card I made a while back that shows how to do the “Spotlight” Technique. I will also be featuring this technique on my Facebook Live tonight … I hope you will join me!

I have chosen to use Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock with a simple stamped image in black to start my card.  Then I stamped my chosen image of the birds on a branch with the Black Momento Ink.  This way when I color the image I’m going to spotlight … it will really stand out! In other words, it spotlights that section of the image.

Another simple spotlighting technique with the fun of coloring, whether you use the watercolor pencils, Stampin’ Write markers or the new Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers you are sure to fall in love with this. Choose an image from your favorite stamp set, I’m using the Free As A Bird stamp set … you will stamp your image twice (or you can cut out the image as I did yesterday to spotlight).

Because I used the Layering Squares Framelits Dies yesterday, I’ve decided to use them again today to cut out and spotlight my part of the image I stamped.  I decided to spotlight the two birds sitting next to each other because my greeting states “We are the best of friends”.

I used the Stampin’ Blends to color my sweet little birds but the watercolor pencils and the markers would work just fine too.  I just love the watercoloring look you get with the stampin’ blends.

Have yourself a wonderful day ~

Two for Tuesday: Baby Wipe Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

How is your week going so far? Hope well … as today I’m sharing two cute cards that showcases the Baby Wipe Technique. You will see two different ways to use those baby wipes.

I am using the Borders Abound stamp set, baby wipes, and Pool Party, Coastal Cabana and Pacific Point. You begin by laying out your baby wipes (I used the kind from the $ $tore) and then you add a few drops of ink in each color onto your baby wipe…

I chose these colors because I picked the snowflake border from the Borders Abound stamp set … now you can use this “inked” baby wipe as your new multi-colored stamp pad. I’m starting simple on my first card ….

I stamped my “multi-colored” snowflakes near the bottom and then added my Christmas greeting … this comes from the “Arrange a Wreath” stamp set. I believe I used this on the 5 cards I shared with you on Sunday (Click Here to View). The snowflakes were kissed with Wink of Stella … just a touch to add a subtle sparkle, and then I layered with the Pool Party to tie it all together. I wish the picture showed the Wink of Stella … so delicate.

My next Baby Wipe technique card, I used the same snowflake border stamp, but this time it’s inked with VersaMark so I can emboss my Whisper White card front in Clear Embossing Powder. Once embossed …. I took my “inked” baby wipe and ran it over the clear embossed image. WOW What a fun impact it creates on your card …

I trimmed my baby “wiped” card front and mounted it onto some Pacific Point. The white background was “speckled” with the Wink of Stella. Tap your Wink of Stella pen against another pen or a block to sprinkle the Stella onto the background … it’s beautiful! The little Wink of Stella spots shimmer and the heavier ones look silver, and they add such a wintry touch to your card.

I’m thrilled that you can actually see the little shimmer and silver spots from the Wink of Stella. And I love the look of “brush strokes” on this card … it appears as if you hand painted it!

This is one of those fun techniques (one of my favorites for Fall cards) where you get more bang for your buck because you can create two different looks from your Baby Wipe technique.

I’m not sure about you … but I come away with inky fingers when I do the “dragging” on the Baby Wipe technique. Some like to wear gloves, I don’t mind the inky fingers unless I’m going someplace nice.

I hope you enjoyed today’s technique and cards … I’d love to know what you’d like to see. Leave a comment below so I can better meet your stamping needs.

Thanks for the visit today, it’s appreciated. See you tomorrow!

Lovin’ the Triple Layer Technique

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

I’ve got two cards to share with you today using the Triple Layer Technique … it is usually done with stamped images but I like using it with designer paper. I’m using the Peony Garden, same as I did on my Simply Sunday cards (View them Here).

Let’s begin with the “How To” create the Triple Layer. I’m using the square dies but you can actually use any shape die …

I picked the Gray Peony pattern to show that when die cut, the triple layer technique highlights the pattern …

Once your designer paper is die cut, you will need to mat those pieces … I like mine to be only an 1/8″ larger so you don’t take away from your design …

You’ve got to love the fact that you have no waste with this designer paper technique. One little tip I’d like to share is to keep your designer paper in the position in which you cut.

Time to create the layers and while we are add it … lets add dimension too! Remember when layering, to position your cut pieces so the design aligns and you will end up with a stunning Triple Layer card ~

See how the pattern of your paper is not chopped up by the die cuts, but are actually highlighted with the mat. This monochromatic card checks all the boxes in design and is finished off with “best wishes” sentiment from the Borders Abound.

Are you lovin’ the layers? How about the monochromatic theme? Do you prefer a portrait or landscape layout? How about we change things up a bit and swap out the Basic Gray cardstock for Basic Black and turn our card from the portrait to a landscape / horizontal layout …

What do you think? Too bold or does the black really make the card pop? I had a little fun positioning the sentiment and thought that it really incorporates itself into the card. Talking about layering ….

I must say that I had a lot of fun creating these cards … this technique is fun and easy to do. Again, you can use any die shape as long as you have a mat behind it.

Which one did you prefer … and why? Make sure you leave me your comments below, I can’t wait to find out which one you all like best!

Thanks for hanging out with me today, and I can’t wait to hear what you think … Like the post at the bottom of my blog and then leave a comment on which card you like best.

Have an awesome day today ~

Forever Fern: Eclipse Technique!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

So excited to meet you back here today! I have a special treat for you … the Forever Fern bundle highlighted using the Eclipse Technique. My color pallet is the Garden Green and Soft Seafoam … love them two together!

So if I haven’t gotten you hooked on this bundle yet, check this out using the dies …

The Eclipse technique is using dies to cut out your image and then using both the cut image and negative to create an “eclipse” effect. I off centered my leaf slightly more than usual to allow more of the color to show underneath, especially because there is a space left open from the die cut.

I began with die cutting the leaf, then I embossed the “negative” with the Subtle embossing folder. Then I took my leaf and colored one side with the “Dark Old Olive” Stampin’ Blend Marker…

I went over the leaf “edges only” again to create some depth of color. Once this was done I added the Wink of Stella … I couldn’t help myself! Even though this would have made a perfect “natural” card, I wanted to “jack it up” a bit as encouragement … My sentiment: You can do this!

The close up is to illustrate to coloring, I just wish you could see the actual “shimmer” from the Wink of Stella instead of just the dots! The other day I shared a card (see card here) using the Trio Punch so I thought I would use it again, showing you a different style punch available. I thought it went very nicely with this card …

The foliage / leaf was secured with the use of the Mini Glue dots. I just “rolled” them and not only do they stick nice, they boost the die cut image up a bit. To finish off my card, I added a few rhinestones to compliment the shimmer of the Wink of Stella and to draw the eye around the card.

Hope you enjoyed today’s card … as you can tell, I am really enjoying the Forever Fern Suite. It’s a staple in your collection (kind of like Lovely as a Tree). Just a reminder that Stampin’ Up! is currently adding a FREE BUNDLE of your Choice to the $99 Starter Kit ($125 Value). I’m here to answer any questions you may have.

Thank you for taking the time to check out my blog today. Hope your day is a good one!

Celebrating the Rose with Fun Techniques

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Well … we made it half way through the week and we are quickly heading into the weekend! I love Thursdays 🙂  The “technique” card I was going to show you today will be showcased tomorrow, so today I have 3 beautiful cards created with the Wild Rose stamp set ….

The first card…  “Blessed to Know You” card demonstrates the Three-step Stamping technique. I always begin with my “Line Image”, it helps me align the next two stamps.

My “True Friendship” card is simple yet shows two techniques on this card.  The first is creating your background which gives you nice depth … this is color on color (Basic Gray Cardstock with Basic Gray ink). Then second technique is sponging … With a sponge dauber I added color onto the image, then a touch of my Wink of Stella!

The third card, my “Hello” card features the “Coloring with Stampin’ Blends” technique … I find this technique so relaxing. Remember coloring as a child, yes, that feeling!

First, I chose my color pallet; Whisper White and Highland Heather. I stamped the rose image with the Momento ink and began to color it with the Highland Heather Stampin’ Blends Duo. I begin by coloring a petal with the light marker, then add the dark marker at the part of the petal that is closest to the center and over the lines in the rose. Then I go back over the dark with the lighter marker to blend the colors … you can always add a little more dark again. I leave the edges of the petals as light as I can.

The center is colored with the Daffodil Delight Dark Stampin’ Marker and then the rose is die cut.  The leaves cut from Pear Pizzazz cardstock.  The lattice piece was cut in Whisper White and Highland Heather and then layered to create an added dimension to the card.  The white base was stamped with the “Hello” from the stamp set and then the entire piece was embossed using the “Subtle” Folder.

Have you fallen in love with this amazing bundle yet?  I find it so versatile and easy to use. How would you like these cards?

Thank you for joining me today and checking out my To A Wild Rose Cards and the Fun Techniques used to create them. Let me know if you have any questions on the cards shared today.

Hope your day is filled with beauty … pass it on.

Technique Tuesday: Reverse Masking with a Twist!

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I have a cute card that highlights the Reverse Masking technique. Usually we use masking to cover an image so we can stamp over it to create depth on our cards … today, we will use “reverse masking” to create a focal point on our card.

I used the Layered Square dies to cut out a “mask” to begin my card. The mask is secured onto my card front and prepared to sponge color in the “space” ….

Once the mask is removed, you have a colorful focal point on your card front. You can do many things at this point and I’ll be showing some of those yet this week, but today ….

Our twist is to run it through your embossing machine. I used the Hammered Metal 3-D embossing folder … love the texture it adds to this card!

Now … with the crack of a handle we’re going to run the Well Written dies through the die cut machine to create our “friend” greeting and our hearts! Simple … Sweet … mount, Complete!

So with a simple reverse image, a little embossing and a die cut greeting, we have a cute card that was easy to make but will produce a big impact!

Thanks for hanging out with me today, stop back tomorrow and I’ll share another way you can decorate a this simple reverse image technique.

Have a great day ~
