Gable Box goes Elegant

20180723_103437

Elegant Silver & Shimmer!! Mini Gable Boxes are SO HANDY: #146961 Lustrous White and #145568 Silver. I carefully opened the side seam of this box using an Exacto Knife. That enabled me to emboss each half of the box with the lovely NEW Tufted DYNAMIC Embossing Folder #146335!! It's a "WOW" with texture!!

I finished off this tufted box with Silver Embossing Powder, Sparkle Glimmer Paper, Silver Foil Paper and 3/8" Silver Metallic-Edged Ribbon. Ready for GIVING! Try it!

How to Select Colors for Uninked Spectrum Pad

20180723_103900

What is BETTER than a Spectrum Ink Pad??? An UNINKED Spectrum Pad!! Build you own color combos for any season or occasion! How???

20180707_084620

To select FIVE colors for your uninked pad, cut strips of cardstock colors and play till you find a combo you love and that fills your needs. I chose: Coastal Cabana, Lemon Lime Twist, Pineapple Punch, Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo. Then grab your reinkers in those colors and create your color combo. BE SURE TO RECORD YOUR COLORS FOR LATER RE-INKING!! I wrote right on the back of the pad.

The cover of the pad has an indented slot where I added cardstock using Tear & Tape to label the colors, also. Colors at a glance!

For this card, I left the Spectrum Pad separated and place white cardstock on top of the pad. I rubbed the back of the cardstock till I started to detect the colors soaking into the cardstock from the backside. I stamped the sentiment and details from A BIG THANK YOU Stamp Set #147377 in Jet Black Momento Ink.

Lastly, I topped the layer with vellum. I love this card! Try it!!

Clean off Gummy Snips

20180817_103345

Gummy scissors are a fact of life for crafters. My favorite adhesive remover for Snips, is GOO GONE! It's available in all big box stores and really works! I moisten a cotton ball with Goo Gone and wipe all cutting surfaces. I  also use it on my Big Shot Cutting Plates, then clean any oily residue that remains. Test before using on non-metal surfaces. It's a life saver! Keep it handy!


Drapery Fold Card

20180723_105310

Sympathy cards are SO IMPORTANT to send, so I try to keep a supply handy. This is called a Drapery Fold. I didn't have a pattern to follow so I just folded the designer paper back and forth, then cut off the excess. I glued only the top edge.

20180723_105324

This Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper #146913 is so gorgeous - you can almost smell the flowers! I love this sympathy card.

If you enjoy my posts, please share my blog with your friends! Appreciated!!

Fast Swappin' Card Idea

20180704_185929

This format goes together fast if you need a stack of swap cards in a hurry! Grab Designer Series Paper and do the ECONOMICAL cut of 3X3". Mount coordinating designs in opposite corners of a standard 4-1/4 X 5-1/2" card. Add a center sentiment/embellishment. BAM! DONE!

20180704_185954

I used a Gorgeous Grape base card. The pattern is my favorite, Brights 6X6" Designer Series Paper Stack #146964. The center is the Darling Label Punch Box #146855 that includes the punch and 6 sentiments. This format also works perfectly with 12X12" designer papers. Going to OnStage as a demonstrator?? This could be YOUR swap with any current designer papers! TRY IT!
