AI Interactive Series #1: Camper Tryfold Card

Happy Camper Tryfold tutorial by Sandy Allnock

A few notes before we get rolling –

  1. Yesterday – a big announcement is over HERE!
  2. Even though some of you aren’t interested in my Bible Journaling,  you still might wanna see Puppies on Ice! They’re at the start of the video.
  3. I’ve added a pretty spectacular painting to my Society6.
  4. Today is the start of a series this week with NEW interactive stamps and dies from Art Impressions…BIG thanks to them for providing them to me so I can show you – and you can decide which if any need to come home with you! (My apologies to your wallet!)

 

 

AI Interactive Series #1: Happy Camper Tryfold Card

Campers just make me think of summer vacation – even if I never have take a vacation in a camper before! But a girl can dream, right? This is one of two new Tryfold sets that are tons of fun to put together and color – I used my Prismacolor pencils this time. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

List of Prisamcolors used: 1033, 1002, 918, 122, 945, 1095, 103, 208, 1079, 1096, 935

Here are the panels individually, and a picture of the way the card folds. Stay tuned tomorrow – I have FOUR different layouts for those tryfolds!

And this little produce stand is adorable – with a little raccoon sneaking a snack inside! The stamp on the front went on a little off-center (user error!) so I compensated by putting the “OPEN” sign on the left and an extra potted plant.

Be Awesome Bird Cards – Paper Smooches Baby Birds

Be Awesome Bird Cards

While the title of this cute little stamp set from Paper Smooches is “Baby Birds,” it’s not for baby cards (though could be). They’re just stinking adorable birdies! I decided to color them using analagous colors on a color wheel – see below the video. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

There are TONS of color wheels on the web, and analagous colors are the ones adjoining each other.

And here are stills of each of the card insides, for your pinning pleasure:

New Best Friend: Pet Shelter Cards

New Best Friend: Pet Shelter Cards

Lots of folks ask me where to donate cards – and many of you tell me you make them for your local pet shelter. I’m going to be looking into doing the same for some of the animal shelters in my area, since I seem to have a growing collection of dog and cat stamps…but check out THIS set from MFT – it’s purrrrfect for shelters! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Here’s the version with kitties….

R2C Day6: Sweet Llama Christmas Card – Colored Pencil

Sweet Llama Christmas Card – Colored Pencil

Today I’ve got some coloring tips for you with colored pencils – and a darling simple llama card! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Today’s charity

When I think of llamas, one thing that comes to mind is a scarf I was given made from llama wool many years ago – so I think of the woman in South America who made it! Today I want to bring up an organization called Ten Thousand Villages – I’ve shopped in person at one of their retail locations before, and spent a bit of moolah over at their web store for this season. I’m certain you’ll find something there for that hard-to-shop-for person…something with a story behind it!
