Stampn’ Up! Saturday, Beautiful Peacock

Hello folks!  Today I thought I would share a Stampn’ Up! card with you.  Normally when I make a card, I make multiples to have on hand and for this card I made six of them.

This stamp set is called Beautiful Peacock.

I live in Canada, so our Thanksgiving is over and I hope my American readers have a fabulous Thanksgiving.  Anyone going Black Friday shopping?  I live on the US border so many girls from work take the day off to go over to take advantage of the deals.

My Christmas tree is up and decorated, presents are wrapped, so all that is left is my Christmas baking.

Hope you have a terrific weekend.

I had a lot of fun making this card.

 

Steps:

  1. Find a piece of designer paper that isn’t busy, such as the blended colours one I used.  You can blend colours onto your own paper to create your own background.
  2. Using white embossing powder, heat emboss your background using the stamp above called Christmas Whimsy Background.
  3. Cut your squares at 1″ pieces and adhere to a piece of white cardstock measuring  4 1/2″ x 3 1/4″.
  4. Adhere your cardstock to a pieces of white cardstock  4 3/4″ x 3 1/2″.
  5. Use a coordinating colour of cardstock, size 5 1/2″ x 4 1/4″, to mat your card.

30 Days of Christmas Day 9

Hello folks.  I wish you a groovy Christmas.  The moment I saw this stamp I knew I had to have it–it’s so me.  LOL.

Today I’m showing you two cards, one Christmas related and one general related.

I coloured Groovy Christmas to coordinate with my Bo Bunny Christmas designer paper.

I love how the sentiment Soul of a Gypsy coordinates with this Groovy Christmas stamp so well.  I can see many more of these cards to come.  I sell my cards at work and I’ll bet this will be a popular card.

Have a great week!

How to Create with Metallic Shimmering Bliss

Can you believe that I didn’t use metallic paper on my card?  Instead I used Technique Junkies metallic Shimmering Bliss.  You can receive these gorgeous sprays or any other product at 10% off simply by using the code TJ10Beth.  It’s that simple.

The stamp I used is called Dream Big.  It is a large stamp so I cut it in half and used the bottom portion of the stamp which I gold embossed on black cardstock.

The cost of purchasing metallic paper is expensive so when Pat offered metallic Shimmering Bliss, I got a hold of them.  Here I used Golden Olive, Silver, Smoldering Ash, and Chestnut Mare.

You may be interested to hear that Pat is offering bundles now, so check them out.

Get it all Spray Bundle

Now on to my tutorial…

Spray your cardstock with the colours I listed (you can use any colour of Shimmering Bliss for a different look).  Let dry completely.

 

Emboss your dried cardstock.

I wanted a masculine-looking card so I picked out masculine embossing folders.

Cut into a variety of shapes as seen here.

Using your unembossed background lay it flat and arrange your embossed pieces of cardstock, leaving space between your cardstock to represent grout.  I used my ATG gun to adhere the cardstock.  You can also lightly use glue to attach your cardstock to your background as well.

Once you have your card covered you may chose to mat your background.

I hope I inspired you to pull out your Shimmering Bliss.

Technique Junkies October New Release

Welcome to the Technique Junkies October New Release!  If you came from my ubber talented friend Judy Jackson then you’re on the right track.  Otherwise you might want to start at the beginning of the hop at our blog Design Junkies so you don’t miss a thing.  Keep on reading for a tutorial I made.

We have a new designer and I’m sure you know of her.  Our new artist is the talented Ms. Jan Tinklenberg who has a stamp line called Mitton State Stamps.  This lovely Wreath Sled is one of Jan’s fine designs.

From today until October 8th you can get the October release stamps at 15% off.  It automatically comes off your cart.  It’s that simple.  For any other products you are entitled to 10% off.  All you have to do is use my code TJ10Beth.

\

My next card uses a technique I personally developed for the June 2010 issue of the Technique Junkie Newsletter.  This technique is called Faux Dominos and I am sharing a new tutorial with you.  Read on for it.  To see the original tutorial I shot you can see it here.

I coloured this wonderful Holiday Doodles stamp, which is a new release.

Next, I cut the image close to the half way point.

I cut the “dominoes” in 1″ pieces then I used a corner rounder to shape them into dominoes.  This step is optional.  You might like square dominoes better.

Using VersaMark I pressed the pad over top of the entire domino piece then sprinkled with clear embossing powder and heat embossed the embossing powder.

To make the domino look thick, add pop dots on the back.  Now you’re ready to finish your card.

Your next visit is with the talented Lynda Pleckan.
