Make a Storybook Christmas Card

This is yet another card design inspired by the stamp set itself – when I saw it had the Twas the Night Before Christmas poem, I had to snag it to make a card that reads like a book! Simple coloring involved…enjoy the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Individual pics of the panels … the outer card folds to 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″ like a regular card; the inserted card is 4″ x 5-1/4″:

Mass Production for the easily bored

Mass Production for the easily bored

Mass Production for the easily bored

Maybe it’s just me. But once I do something one time, it’s really hard to make another identical one! I’m ready to move on, so mass production is especially hard for me. But I need a LOT of Christmas cards – I send out about 200 each year, 50 or so to family, and the rest to Patrons, random subscribers here on the blog, and students. So I need to learn how to make a bunh, and found a way that at least won’t bore me to tears! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Kinda fun eh? Mix up the papers and mediums and stamps and at least there’s some difference for you to enjoy, too!

One day flash sale!

Penguin Week #3: Four types of shaker snow

Penguin Week #3: Four types of shaker snow

 

Wheee! I’ve apparently fallen in love with penguins…because I discovered I’ve picked up a ton of penguin stamps this year! I decided to combine them in one big ol’ week full of penguin cards – I hope my penguin-loving friends will enjoy the stamps, and my technique-loving friends will enjoy learning too!

Penguin Week #2: Four types of shaker snow

Every year I seem to need to “try again” – because I can’t remember which of my snow has how much static in it! The static causes it to stick – sometimes for better or worse – to the front of a shaker card. But the new Scenearama one made me think of those old iron shaving drawing games from my childhood…anyone remember Wooly Willy? Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Fall Flowers Series 2018 #5: Copic Coloring on Colored Cardstock

Fall Flowers Series 2018 #5: Copic Coloring on Colored Cardstock

 

Fall Flowers Series 2018

I love creating a little series of videos for you sometimes….kind of like a mini public “class”! I had a bunch of flower stamps in my growing stash that I haven’t shown yet, so they’ll be collected together this week into a series. Enjoy!

Copic Coloring on Colored Cardstock

I’ve colored on some other cardstocks with things like pencil….most of my Copic I’ve reserved for Neenah. I happened to have *surprise* a pack of Lawn Fawn paper in the studio, so I decided to try it out! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

So simple but so pretty…and now I have a card ready for the next occasion for which I don’t really “feel” like making a card due to the emotion. It’s always good to have one in the card basket!

World Watercolor Month #4: Interactive Rainbow Slider Card

World Watercolor Month #4: Interactive Rainbow Slider Card

 

World Watercolor Month

This post is…well, let’s say it’s a tiny stretch, okay? Here’s the rationale: water + sunlight = rainbow when it’s seen from the correct angle. So I’m picturing rain in here somewhere! LOL! I considered redoing the video to create it in watercolor but, ya know…..it was just so bright and happy, I just went with it!

Interactive Rainbow Slider Card

New releases from Ellen Hutson this month are all about rainbows and magic! In the video I show you a couple of the other items (I’ll be using the Mermaid later this month), but I really wanted to make the interactive rainbow card. Sooooo stinking cute!
