Quick card share today. This one was in the recent Paper Crafts issue (which, by the way, is a really good issue!) and a few people emailed me to ask how it was done. So here it is…
Super easy. I added double-sided tape to cardstock. Then I took off the release paper, added green glitter, burnished it well and cut it into a tree. Did it again for a trunk piece. (Supplies are listed below.)
I am so very honored to be a part of STAMPtember – a month long celebration of stamping over at Simon Says Stamp. Today I am featured over on their blog and share a video of three cards. Here is a peek…
And get this – Heidi of Simon Says Stamp said I could give a discount code for 20% off all Hero Arts products from September 25 through September 30! WOOHOO! Just go HERE and use the code “JM20SB” when you check out.
While there, be sure to check out all the new Hero Arts goodies HERE and HERE.
Simon Says Stamp was founded in 2002 with an interest in exclusively selling rubber stamps. It didn’t take long until we realized we couldn’t stop there. During the past 10 years we celebrate rubber stamping in its full glory by giving access to people around the world to a one stop shop. Rubber stamps still remain the heart of our business and we are celebrating by hosting a STAMPtember™ event intended to inspire, educate, and celebrate the greatness of rubber stamping. Part of the enticement of rubber stamping is that stamps can be used in creating or complimenting ANYTHING! From stamping dates on bank documents and postage parcels in the early 18th century, rubber stamping has dramatically expanded to include card making, scrapbooking, mixed media and many forms of altering and expressing art.
I also thought it would be fun to do a giveaway along with this celebration. Just leave a comment here by 11:59pmEST on 9/30 for your chance to win a $25 gift certificate from me for Simon Says Stamp! Good luck.
Just a quick share. I had a few people email me about this card from Paper Crafts Holiday Cards and More. (By the way – this is a great issue!) So I thought I would share it here…
Yum yum yum I love those wood veneer stars! I just colored them with markers and assembled them into a tree.
Speaking of Studio Calico…
Heads up! A lot of the new products from Studio Calico are now ready to hop into your hands (as they did mine). You can find them all HERE, but here are my favorites. The stamp sets, fabric covered thickers (great for inking) and wood veneer shapes are great…
I thought it would be fun to create a photo ornament of Lila for Grandma. I decided to combine two of my favorite dimensional techniques: rosettes and paper hearts. (I have how-to video links for each below.)
I used some Echo Park paper, cardstock, my favorite Stardust Glitter Ritz and some heart dies. Easy as can be…
I made the paper heart and traced it onto the photo. I then cut the photo into the heart shape and glued the heart over it with touches of Glossy Accents. The rosette was made with two 2″ paper strips.
To learn how to do the heart shapes, check out THIS post and video. For the rosettes? THIS post and video.
