Video Tutorial: Scene Building with the Snow Front Stamp set

Today I have created a great tutorial to show you how to build a scene with the gorgeous soon-to-be-released stamp set called "Snow Front".  I've done scene building with the Waterfront stamp set in the past, and you can get similar effect with "Snow Front" as well, however I used a couple of different techniques today to product the effect you see above.

I made the tag first, and liked it so much I decided to create a card as well. In the video I show them in that order too.... and I hope you will agree that the result is stunning.  The video is longer than I usually make, but I think its worth it!

I've included a product list below for those that wish to purchase any of these items. The Snow Front stamp set however will not be available until September 4th, but everything else used is available right now.  And you can create with the Waterfront set in the same way.

Here is the video link.....I hope you enjoy it:

Video Tutorial: Mulitcoloured flowers with the new Pigment Sprinkles!

Today's video tutorial features our amazing new Pigment Sprinkles, which you will find in our current Annual Catalogue.  How much FUN are these to play with???!!  I used them for my technique classes this month and we had a ton of fun!

The sprinkles (AKA Watercolor Crystals) come in 6 ultra intense colours, and the best bit? They co-ordinate perfectly with some of the colours in our Brights colour family. Here are the 6 colours:

Bermuda Bay
Melon Mambo
Mango Melody
Granny Apple Green
Daffodil Delight
Gorgeous Grape

In my video I've given a few tips on using these awesome powders. They activate when you add water... giving you a multitude of different ways to play with them!  Today I chose to use them with pre-embossed images... this means that the colours swirl around the embossed images and give you lots of different colours in the process.  If you wish to purchase any of these Stampin'Up products use the SHOP NOW button on this page.

Check out the video below to see what I mean.... and of course be sure to SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel to see lots more techniques and ideas! 

Have a fantastic day!

The Pressed Petals Specialty Paper is perfect for Vintage-style cards

Happy Monday!

This past weekend I cracked open my pack of Pressed Petals Specialty DSP and WOW!  Its so pretty!  If you are wondering what makes this paper so special its actually a couple of things... yes, its beeautifully detailed, and has lots of Vintage-inspired designs.  Its a lighter weight paper, perfect for all kinds of projects.  But the best thing?  Its double the size of the normal packs! So instead of 12 sheets in a pack, you get 24!!!  This makes it EXCELLENT value!  There are 6 different designs (front and back), and you get 4 full 12' x 12" sheets of each design!

There's also a good variety of colour.  The main colours seem to be the pinky/purply shades, but here on my card today I chose the Navy/Crumb cake combo. Its a very simple card.... I let the paper do most of the work, and just added a few details.   A yellow circle behind the sentiment to bring out the flower centres.  I embossed my sentiment with White embossing powder on Navy cardstock to make it stand out. I added some leaves cut from Gold glimmer paper, and added a little lace ribbon for that extra Vintage touch.  And thats pretty much it!  But I think you will agree its a lovely card. With that paper.. its hard to go wrong!

Here's a close up:

I've included my product list below so that you can shop for any of these (or other) items if you wish.  If you click on a product it takes you directly to my Online Store.  Have a wonderful week!

Video Tutorial: Creating Art with your Magnolia 3d Embossing Folder

Today I have a little Video Tutorial for you..... I made this card (on the left) last night and was so happy with the result that I did the tutorial today.  Already I can see how I improved my result in the second card (on the right)... so the moral of the story is, if you like this technique, take the time to practice it!  Because you will get better at it every time!

Originally this tutorial was over 25 minutes long! So I sped up the camera and hopefully that will make it easier to watch!  I'd love to know what you think! Ive included a product list below.
