Seasonal Swirls for Autumn Themed Blog Hop



Hi Crafty Friends!
Today I'm participating in an Autumn Themed Blog Hop with a group of amazing demonstrators from around the world. Please take a minute to visit all their blogs that are listed below.
Seasonal Swirls Dies are the focal point of my card today. My card base is a 4 1/4" x 8 1/2" piece of Soft Suede folded in half. The next layer is a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Basic White that has been embossed with the Timber Embossing Folder. I sponged a little Soft Suede ink over the raised design to give it a little pop.
The wreaths were cut from the bronze and gold foil paper from the Brushed Metallic card stock. A gold cord bow was added.
The leaves at the bottom were cut from the same foil papers with the leaf dies from Giving Gifts Dies. The sentiment is from Art Gallery and was cut with the sentiment die from Beautiful Trees.

I hope you like my card enough to give it a try yourself. Now take a minute and check out all the fabulous projects at the other demonstrators blogs.

Faux Tile Technique with Elegantly Said for Scoring Technique Blog Hop



Hi, Crafty People!
Today is Technique Tuesday Blog Hop Day! That means I am hopping with a fabulous group of demonstrators all around the globe. Our technique challenge is any way to use scoring, and I chose to demonstrator the faux tile technique.

The first thing you probably noticed about my card is that I only used one color-Polished Pink! This is highly unusual for me as I like a lot of different colors on my cards. Of course, Polished Pink is a lot of color!

My card base is a 11" x 4 1/4" of Thick Basic White cardstock. If you haven't tried out Thick Basic White, you should. It's great for card bases! The next layer is a 4" x 5 1/4" piece of Polished Pink cardstock.

To achieve the faux tile look, I started with a piece of 5" x 3 3/4" Basic White (not the thick this time). Score it every 3/4" on the 3 3/4" side as shown below. I used our Simply Scored Scoring Tool, a tool I can't live without!

Next score the same piece every inch on the 5" side. See below.


I then stamped this piece with the flower from the Elegantly Said stamp set in Polished Pink. I adhered this piece to the Polished Pink layer, then adhered my bow around both pieces. Next, I adhered this piece to my card front. 
The Pale Papaya gems from the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels were placed in the flower center.


The sentiment, from Elegantly Said, was stamped on Basic White with Polished Pink ink. It was then cut with the banner die from Tasteful Labels dies. The Polished Pink circle was also cut with a die from the same set. I adhered the two together and mounted it with dimensionals. 
One last look!

I hope you like my card and will give it a try. Please take a minutes to visit the blogs of these talented demonstrators.

Inspiring Trees for Kylie Bertucci's Vote For me Highlights




Hi, Crafty People!

My customers made this card at my card classes in August!

Now some details about this card. Thanking someone for a kind act you're thankful for will be easy with a card like this.

The design of this card is a z-fold. I started with a single sheet of 4" x 10 1/4" Basic White . Using a Blend Brush, I applied Mango Melody ink on the bottom third, Poppy Parade on the middle third, and Pacific Point on the top section. I then cut two 2 1/2" section off the left side and adhered to the left section of my 11" x 4 1/4" Early Espresso card base. This piece was scored at 2 3/4" and 5 1/2".

2 Sets of trees were cut from Early Espresso using the trees from the Inspiring Canopy dies. I adhered one set to the right largest section then the grass section over that. To adhere the second set of trees, I closed up the card and lined up the trees on top of the first set. The grass was then adhered to the base of the trees.
