Hey, Hey Stampers!
It's Friday! Woot Woot!
And it is almost the end of January.....yay that means closer to camping season (lol ya I know....I am dreaming again- ha ha!)
Here is a video replay of last night's Facebook Live card class and pics of the cards are below.
First I made super simple cards using only white card stock, 1 stamp set, and 1 ink pad. Then I stepped it up a wee bit by sponging the same color ink lightly over the images to make them pop. Then I stepped it up a bit more by embellishing with pearls and adding a tiny bow.

Hey, Hey Stampers! Happy Wednesday!
We are halfway through the work week and just two days to the weekend!
I hope you are staying warm...here in Winnipeg we had a shocking cold snap and temperatures this week so far were as cold as -46.....brrrrr!
Today's blog post is a video tutorial for what I am calling a wonky gatefold card....not sure what you are supposed to call this card....I have seen tons of them all over social media and thought I would give it a try.
I used the FABULOUS Love You Always suite of products found in the J2J Mini Catalog.
There is a sneak peek of my card below......and

HEY, HEY STAMPERS! HAPPY WEDNESDAY!
LAST NIGHT I WAS SITTING IN MY CRAFT ROOM, TRYING TO FIND SOME INSPIRATION FOR A CARD. I FINALLY WAS ABLE TO FIND SOME INSPIRATION AND MADE THIS FABULOUS CARD:
DO YOU EVER GET LIKE THAT....WANT OR NEED TO MAKE A CARD AND HAVE ABSOLUTELY NO INSPIRATION....NO IDEA WHERE TO START? IT HAPPENS TO ME ALL THE TIME!
MY GO-TO IN SITUATIONS LIKE THIS IS A CARD SKETCH....BUT I HAVE DONE QUITE A FEW OF THOSE IN THE PAST COUPLE OF WEEKS......NEXT WOULD BE TO PERUSE PINTEREST.....BUT THEN I SPIED MY CATALOGS.
I GRABBED THE J2J MINI AND OPENED THE FRONT COVER AND BEGAN TURNING PAGES. IT ONLY TOOK A COUPLE OF PAGES FOR SOMETHING TO CATCH MY EYE.
IT WAS THE FABULOUS YOU ARE AMAZING PROJECT KIT FOUND ON PAGE 7. I HAVE HAD MY EYE ON THIS FOR A WHILE NOW....BUT STILL HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO ORDER IT. HERE IS A PIC OF THE KIT:
THIS IS AN ALL FABULOUS KIT THAT MAKES 16 CARDS AND COORDINATES WITH THE YOU ARE AMAZING STAMP SET!
WELL THIS IS THE CARD THAT CAUGHT MY EYE:
IT IS SO BRIGHT AND CHEERY IT MAKES ME SMILE. WE CAN ALL USE A FEEL GOOD CARD RIGHT ABOUT NOW. THIS ONE DOES IT FOR ME.
SO THEN I THOUGHT.....I CAN CASE THIS CARD AND TEACH A TECHNIQUE FOR MY BLOG POST TOMORROW!
HERE IS MY CARD AGAIN:
STAMPERS....THIS CARD WAS QUITE SIMPLY DESIGNED BY ADMIRING THE SAMPLE IN THE BOOK.....THEN DESIGNING MY CARD USING THE PRODUCTS I HAD ON HAND.
THE CARD BASE IS PRETTY PEACOCK.....THE MAT LAYER IS WHISPER WHITE.
FOR THE TECHNIQUE PART OF THIS CARD, I SIMPLY USED THE MARKER BACKGROUND TECHNIQUE. I USED STAMPIN WRITE MARKERS TO DRAY HORIZONTAL LINES USING THE FOLLOWING COLORS:
- PRETTY PEACOCK
- MANGO MELODY
- BERMUDA BAY
- GRANNY APPLE GREEN
- FLIRTY FLAMINGO
THIS WAS A 2017 SALEABRATION CHOICE THAT THEY ARE BRINGING BACK ON FEB 2 WITH DIES.....AND IT COORDINATES WITH THE HEY BIRTHDAY CHICK AND IT WILL BE AVAILABLE AS A BUNDLE INCLUDING DIES TOO!
