Butterfly Gala Card Tutorial

The Occasions Catalog goes Live on January 3rd! So there are just a few more days before you can get the wonderful new products. Hopefully, you’ve received your catalogs in the mail from me already so you already have it in hand. This week I’ll be sharing some tutorials for projects I’ve made, including OnStage projects. I think you’ll enjoy them – so come back by and check them out.

Today’s card is one that I shared with you from my Team OnStage Event (you can see it here). So as promised I’m going to share how I made this card.

This set is a beautiful set that contains not only beautiful butterfly images but lovely sentiments using a pretty font. I couldn’t resist when I saw it in the 2019 Occasions Catalog and since it’s part of a Suite of products there are tons of choices for coordinating products. I think you’re going to LOVE it as much as I do!

#OnStage Mini Mouse Hand Sanitizer Holder

Today’s project is one that I made for my OnStage attendees – when I ran across these little Mini Mouse Hand Sanitizers at my local Walmart I just couldn’t resist – they were just too cute.

So I wanted to make a little OnStage themed gift for everyone and here is what I came up with.

So what do you think? Cute? And of course it never hurts to have some hand sanitizer with you either.

Want Micky instead? Simply move the bow and make it a bow tie. And why not leave me a comment and let me know which is your favorite Micky or Mini.

Want to make some for yourself? I’ve whipped up a quick video tutorial for you.

Rooted in Nature Faux Silk Tutorial

I started this project a while back and got side tracked. Does that ever happen to you? That being said, I’m not admitting to my stack of half finished projects  anything. LOL!

Well the good news is I finally finished it and love the way it turned out so I wanted to share it with you today.

What do you think? Can you see your favorite autumn photo in it? The color is a bit late here in this neck of the state so I haven’t gotten many pictures yet, but hope too still if the rain doesn’t wash things out.

This frame looks like it took along time and is complicated, but really isn’t difficult to do with a few basic supplies. The frame itself is one of those inexpensive $1 frames you can find at your local Walmart or craft store.

Here is a video tutorial for you showing you how I made it. This video is a bit longer than I normally do so I hope you enjoy it.

Falling for Leaves Thank You Card Tutorial

It’s Monday and I’ve got a week filled with tutorials for you! Today’s card is a Thank You card that I make to send out to those of you who place an order – and today’s card is the one I designed for November’s orders using a  technique with our Embossing Paste.

I just fell in love with the Joyous Noel Glimmer Paper when I saw it so I thought I’d use the beautiful Merry Merlot Glimmer Paper for this month’s project. I teamed it up with some of our Shimmer Paste and our brick mask.

But since I wanted to add a bit more color I tinted the Shimmer Paste Crumb Cake. Check out this quick Video Tutorial showing you just how simple that is to do! And that means we have unlimited colors to choose from. Who doesn’t like that?

Pleasant Pheasants

Have you seen the Pleasant Pheasants stamp set in the holiday catalog? My eye was immediately drawn to the beautiful pheasants and other fall images. Perfect to color or use with techniques like this card.

How was this technique done? You’ll need a large Clear Block, some Stampin’ Write Markers, and a Stampin’ Spritzer filled with water.

Scribble the color onto the Clear Block with the Stampin’ Write Markers, this card uses Soft Suede, Cajun Craze, and Crushed curry. Then spritz with the water and stamp onto the paper. You can leave the block in place for a few seconds to help the paper absorb the color. Then all you have to do is dry and use as desired. Yep, it’s that easy!

And did you know that Stampin’ Up! has given us an qucik and easy way to create? There is a special You Can Make It Bundle option (150097) which gives you what you need to get started, why not check it out HERE.

I’ve given you a complete supply list below. Why not try this technique yourself? It’s super easy and a lot of fun.
