Under My Umbrella Twisted Easel Card

Hello Friends,

Today's Twisted Easel Card features two stamp sets from the Stampin' Up! Last Chance List that I will really miss.  They are Under My Umbrella and Ridiculously Awesome.  These two stamp sets with the gorgeous Hydrangea Hill Designer Paper  make a beautiful, perky Twisted Easel Card.

How to Make a Twisted Easel Card

Cut a 11" x 4-1/4" Card Base.  Score at 5-1/2" as you usually would.  Then... , here's the twist, score diagonally from the top right corner to the bottom left corner along the seam as shown.

Cut a 4" piece of designer paper or card stock  and cut diagonally to make the triangular pieces to decorate your card front.

Here's the trick to making your easel stand up.  Pop up your inside piece using dimensionals.  This gives your easel something to catch or lean up against.

Curvy Celebrations Learning From My Mistakes

Curvy Celebrations Stampin' Up!Hello Friends,

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  After a little trial and error, I was able to knock out a stack of the Curvy Celebration cards in no time.  The Curvy Celebrations Bundle is an early release bundle that will be available in the upcoming January -June 2021 Catalog.  The little birdhouse was actually made using a house die from the Home Together dies from the August-December 2020 Mini Catalog.

Learning From My Mistakes Curvy Dies 

First Mistake-For the first card that I made, I used the curvy die to cut the card base.  Then I tried to cut the designer paper with the same die hoping that it would match my first curve.  Silly me!  That did not work out so well, but I did learn something.

For this particular card design, it is much better to cut the curve on the designer paper first.

After cutting the curves on the designer paper adhere to the card base as shown.  That's when I made my second mistake.  Let's just say that I wouldn't recommend using glue to adhere the designer paper to the card base. Cutting machines work with pressure and pressure causes the glue to ooze out.  I felt like I was in kindergarten all over again. Use tape!

To make the second cut simply line up the die along the curve of the first cut on the designer paper.  That was so much easier!

Make In Minutes Prized Peony Card

Prized Peony Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

Believe it or not, you CAN MAKE THIS CARD IN MINUTES.  It may look crazy beautiful, but it is really a simple card to make with the Prized Peony stamps by Stampin' Up!.

Heat Embossing The Beginner's Wow Technique

Heat Embossing is one of those beginner stamping techniques that deliver a whole lot of Wow, but it is surprisingly easy to do.

Today, we are embossing on vellum, but you can Heat Emboss on any paper.  Start by rubbing your paper with a dryer sheet or embossing buddy to prepare the surface.

Next, stamp your sentiment or image using VersaMark ink.  VersaMark is a sticky ink perfect for the Heat Embossing Technique.

Sprinkle Embossing Powder over your stamped image and tap off the excess.  I used gold Embossing Powder.

Heat with Heat Tool to melt all the Embossing Powder.  Wow!

Finishing This Card In 3 Simple Steps

Do you remember the first time that you touched your inked stamp to paper and how awestruck you were at the beautiful image that you created?  Do it again when you stamp this gorgeous peony with Rococo Rose Ink.  Then wrap your embossed vellum piece around your peony.

Stamp a few smaller peonies across the bottom of your 8-1/2" x 5-1/2" Rococo Rose Card Base.

The pretty gold in the background is simply a piece taken from the Forever Gold Laser-Cut Specialty Paper.
