Using the Negative Die Cut Video Tutorial with the Stampin’ Up Praiseworthy Prose Bundle

July 31, 2019

It’s Wednesday…time for a video tutorial!
This one shows how to use the Negative Die Cut for an accent on your card creations:)

The Hand Lettered Prose Dies are a great alphabet to use on an A2 sized card.
Thank You fits wonderfully:)
Think of all the words you could use on a card…baby, wow, love, super, happy, the list goes on…

The extra layer of cardstock under the DSP gives just a little more depth for the negative die cut letters to show off. Next Wednesday, I have another video showing a neat way to accent your card with the Hand Lettered Dies so make sure to visit.

Stampin’ Up To a Wild Rose Split Negative Technique Video Tutorial

July 24, 2019

I played around with a neat technique on this card. Another great way to use my Stamparatus!

It is called a Split Negative Technique usually done with white embossing powder on a colored background but this time, I used two colors of ink on two colors of cardstock.

Here is a video of how easy it is to make one…

or two…as you can see!

Measurements:
Card Base: 5-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ scored at 4-1/4″ on the 8-1/2″ side
Mango border panel on front: 4″ x 5-1/4″
Thick Whisper White and Coastal Cabana stamped panels: 3-3/4″ x 5″,
After stamping the panels, cut both of the panels into two pieces at the same time where you find it works well with the image you used. Then match up the opposite images.

Stampin’ Up Golden Afternoon Thumping Technique

May 12, 2019

I was taken with the Stampin’ Up Golden Afternoon when I first saw it
but was a bit puzzled how to make it come to life for me.


I was going to sponge some different colors on the leaves but then remembered a card
I did when I first started holding classes…
it was back in 2013 using the Thumping Technique.

So, I did the Thumping Technique using my Stampin’ Write Markers on the Golden Afternoon tree.
See the lovely subtle shades of green that make the tree come to life? I stamped the entire image in Pear Pizzazz ink and then thumped on Shaded Spruce, Old Olive, and Garden Green with my Stampin’ Write markers- NOT the alcohol based Stampin’ Blends.

After I thumped on the leaves, I colored directly on the trunk and branches with an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write marker.

I love the little tree image in the stamp set, too. I did put it in the inside bottom right but forgot to take a pic- and the card has been sent out to someone:)

Here is a quick video showing how to do it:

Stampin’ Up All That You Are with the Well Said Bundle

March 16, 2019

The Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set is the first stamp set in the Occasions Catalog,
and I think it belongs at the top of the list.
Isn’t it pretty?

The big bloom is just gorgeous, and the pretty posies, the foliage, and the sentiment label are cut out with the Frosted Bouquet Framelits.
Remember the Frosted Bouquet Framelits were bundled with the First Frost stamp set in the Holiday catalog so if you have that bundle, you can add the Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set to your collection and have two stamp sets that work with the framelits!

I paired the Stampin’ Up Well Said Bundle with the Stampin’ Up All That You Are stamp set on the outside and the inside.
