Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration

Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration

Well, having a teen made me instantly like the Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration set from Stampin’ Up!  My daughter is learning to play guitar, she loves music, and of course these kind of shoes are in style right now!  Perfect! 

I knew I wanted to have the shoes and the earphones be a popped up focal point, but I felt it needed more than just stamping.  So I decided to heat emboss and fussy cut them!  It’s always hard to do justice to heat embossing on camera and video.  However, it makes such a big difference!

And here is the Epic Celebrations 2018 Sale A Bration video tutorial:

Magical Day Wizard & Castle Occasions 2018

Magical Day Wizard & Castle Occasions 2018

Ready for some fairy tale fun?  Try the Magical Day Wizard & Castle Occasions 2018 from the Myths & Magic suite!  Mermaids, Dragons, knights in shining armor, unicorns, and of course, wizards!  Everything you need for a fairy-tastic fun card!

In the video I show how I made a small hole in the brick wall embossed paper this allows me to cut bricks from the inside of the card to create a “hole” in the castle wall.  The one part I forgot to show was how I made the hope your day sentiment separate.  I stamped the sentiment and cut it out with the coordinating framelit.  Once done I move the framelit down to separate the two parts.

Sweet Little Something 2018 Occasions

Sweet Little Something 2018 Occasions

This Sweet Little Something 2018 Occasions card is done up for a baby, but can as easily be changed to an Easter Card with this versatile stamp set!  I love this photo realistic 3 step stamping!  There are several ways crafters approach this, for me I like to start with the lightest color on the stamp with the least detail.  From there just use the medium tone for the second most detailed.  And finally, the darkest color ink for the detail on the card.  When these are lined up perfectly the effect is amazing!  The one I do in the video is almost there!!  Lol…

This card was created for one of our weekly color challenges and I needed a small pumpkin pie colored detail.  So I custom colored our white bakers twine, and voila!  Pop of color!
