24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Penguin Slider Tags

24 Tags of Christmas 2017: Penguin Slider Tags

Penguins!! One of my tags each year seems to be an interactive one….this year it’s ice skating penguins! My recommendation is to buy the dies to make this; I didn’t and had to do a lot of fussy cutting. Even though I don’t mind the work – these could be done a lot faster WITH dies. Yep yep! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Giveaway!

As is tradition, I’ll be choosing winners for each of the 24 tags made in these 6 videos – leave comments on the blog as well as on YouTube for more chances to WIN!

Quick Giraffe Card *And yes, they wear scarves.

Quick Giraffe Card *And yes, they wear scarves.

Sometimes a stamp set gives me the giggles. And makes me want to color it over and over! This little giraffe wants to be colored with all kinds of scarves and bow ties and ribbons – so you’re gonna wanna peek at my Instagram on occasion to see them. Ok well for the coming week at least. (LOL) For now – watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

Isn’t this the cutest lil giraffe!?!? Don’t leave me hanging out here alone…

 

Below are peeks at upcoming videos….and a few of them (2, 3, 4, 5, 8) will ALL post on one day: World Cardmaking Day on October 7th!! I’ll be choosing people to send halloween cards to on that weekend – I’ll choose from everyone who posts a card inspired in some way by the video techniques, so you’ll have to tune in and watch. They’ll go live every few hours…so it’ll be a little like crafting together all day, right!?!? Links to the sets are below if you want to use the set I did – or you can use other sets that you have that work for the technique.

Essentials by Ellen: Interactive Magical Baker Card

Essentials by Ellen: Interactive Magical Baker Card

I have a real sweet tooth. Some might call it a dangerous sweet tooth! The Baker Lady stamp totally tickled my fancy – and I decided to make her a magical baker lady – with a magical bowl from which she can conjure cakes and pies! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

This is a very flat card – the adhesive (Be Creative Tape) is around the outside edges, and the tab is trimmed so it doesn’t get caught in that adhesive.

You could add twine or a brad on the tab – but it is currently a card that pretty much feels like a one-layer card- sorta. With the one layer glued to the other, but without dimension. 

And PS – I have another video with the new release coming up – so if you need to pick up Bear Ware 2 (or the bear!), you can add it on your order today and save some shipping. #alwaysthinking

Bloghop!

Today is the 2nd day of a 3 day hop – be sure to go visit the others after you place your order for Baker Lady! (lol!)

Creepin’ It Real – Frankie and his Cat

Here’s a really funny-named stamp set…Creepin’ it real! ha! Totally gonna be my new phrase for the fall!

Creepin’ It Real – Frankie and his cat

The Darcies sets with the cute tin pins are so much fun – and if we try to match up the colors, they can teach us a little about how to color the image. The cool thing is that it covers up the face…so you can feel free to practice there, since it won’t be seen anyway! Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

And for those taking the Autumn Scenes Minicourse – here’s two backgrounds!

Coloring my favorite ice creams!

Coloring my favorite ice creams!

Today’s video is a quickie – before the ice cream MELTS! Gah! I filmed this a few weeks ago when it was in the upper 90s at my house – which meant 85 in the house. Thank goodness for a breeze! But boy did it have me dreaming of the ice cream truck of my childhood. Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

What’s your favorite flavor or type of ice cream?! Two hands up for chocolate!
