Rudolf has a very shiny nose indeed! You could use just the head, but you can also include his whole body! I love the step card. My friend Jeanne shared how to do the cutting for the layout with me. If you change out the decorations, you will need to pay attention if your Designer Series Paper has a one way pattern.
This card looks complicated and difficult, but don’t let it fool you! It’s quick, easy, and inexpensive. It uses the Petal Burst Textured Impressions Embossing Folder, but you will not need the Big Shot! I used a Circle punch, but you could just cut out a square or rectangle. You can do it!
A whole family of bears to say I love you, happy Mother’s Day, congratulations on a new baby, or just wishing you a day full of sunshine and a lake full of fish. I stamped extra bears with accessories so now I can just play paper dolls… er, bears. This is an easel card, so it will stand up on a shelf or on a desk. Sound’s complicated? No way! Just one extra fold.
I watched Angie Juda’s video for this layout. I had to try it! I decorated my own way. I wanted to try the Color Me Irresistible Designer Series Paper. The stamping is easy. The fold is a bit tricky, but my directions have a diagram. I made several with a different decoration and after making those, I was a pro! Do you like it?
I made a few variations. Check them out at the bottom of this post.
These are variations I made to take for swaps to the upcoming OnStage Local in San Diego. I can’t wait!
I used Watermelon Wonder for this card base and the coordinating Designer Series Paper from the 2015-17 In-Color Paper Stack. I didn’t have the lace in this color, so I went with a larger focal image. I used the Beautiful Bunch stamp set and the Fun Flower punch.
I used the Fine-Tip Glue Pen to add some sparkle with Dazzling Diamonds glitter. When that was dry I added a ring of gloss and texture with more of the Fine-Tip Glue and just let it dry.
This photo below also shows how the Color Me Irresistible Specialty Designer Series Paper shows the pattern when you remove the extra ink.
We all get inspiration from things we see. There are just a few projects I've shown that are CASEd (Copied and Shared Everything). Most of my cards come from a technique I've seen many places and I've made it my own in some way.
I post photos and directions so you can get inspiration. It's OK to copy them for personal use, but hopefully you will make it your own in some way. If you copy my ideas exactly, please give me credit for it. Do not sell any of my directions or organizing tools.
