Window Shopping Bundle

20170218_190240

Shari Wicks, my friend and Florida TEAM member designed this sweet card using the Window Shopping Bundle! The Window Box Thinlits Dies contain a "box die" and FOUR different panel dies to cut the sides of the box. The panel dies can cleverly be used on cards as "window dies" to put paper behind!!  20170218_190300

Thru these floral die cuts, you can see Fruit Stand Designer Series Paper. This adds lots of interest and texture to a card!

20170218_190226

You would never know this card was created using a "BOX" die! Window Shopping Bundle is super versatile! Love this card, Shari!

Timeless Tags Thinlits Dies

20170218_190323

Here's a special birthday card with the feeling of SPRING! This intriguing die cut is created with the Timeless Tags Thinlits and Big Shot Die Cutting Machine.

20170218_190349

I cut an oval thinlit in Soft Suede and Pool Party cardstocks, then plugged the Pool Party petals into the Soft Suede oval die cut. I popped up the center of Soft Suede painted with clear Wink of Stella.

LOVE the texture of the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder as a base layer!

The Stylish Stems Framelits Die makes a great STENCIL. Use Tangerine Tango ink pad and sponge dauber to pounce color thru the framelit stencil, concentrating ink in the center. Then add Wink of Stella Clear to the center for sparkle!

Woven Ribbon Card Tutorial

20170204_191319

Grab some ribbon and make a ONE-OF-A-KIND Card!! This technique is very similar to those pot holders you made as kid - so I know you can do this!

20170204_184605

Start with a "window," which I die cut using a large heart from the SWEET & SASSY FRAMELITS DIES. Place TEAR & TAPE around the window on the BACKSIDE of the cardstock.

20170204_190428

I chose 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon in Blushing Bride and Pool Party for weaving because this is a Baby Card. Remove the TEAR & TAPE backing and lay strips of ribbon across the opening lightly pressed onto the tape. TIP: leave a tiny 1/32" between these ribbons to make the next step easier. Next, weave another color thru the ribbons by lifting every other ribbon slightly with the tip of a scissors. 

20170204_191256

 Press the ends firmly onto the TEAR & TAPE. Trim all ends inside the edge of the cardstock. Fasten any loose ribbons ends with glue dots.

20170204_191319

Just look at the SWEET, TEXTURED results!! Try using all ribbon scraps for multi-colors. Try mixing narrow and medium width ribbons. Try metallic ribbons. Try a 2 by 2 weaving pattern. Try weaving at an angle (bias.) TOO MANY POSSIBILITIES!! Just play with it!

20170204_193812

I used the heart die cut from the front to stamp my inside sentiment. When using soft colors I avoid the harshness of black ink. This color is Soft Suede.

20170204_194428

VIOLA!! Remember to make a coordinating envelope using the Envelope Punch Board! This VERY SPECIAL card is going to baby AUDREY GRACE, a precious little blessing!

You MUST try this!!
