Metal Flakes - The Ugly Side of Pretty

Posted on August 28, 2014 at 8:00pm 0 Comments

"Aside from crafting in a vacuum-sealed room, how can I keep control over these metal flakes?!"  

This is a question I asked myself after opening the bag of flakes just to watch them glitter'splode all over the table.  And the cat.  So I did some research, and here are a few tips compiled from others and myself that will reduce clean up, product waste, and unhappy kitties.

1.  GENTLY open the bag of flakes.  Very, very gently.

2.  Open the bag over a…


Design on the Diagonal

Posted on August 24, 2014 at 11:30am 0 Comments

Creating a diagonal background with multiple papers is surprisingly easy and fun.  It looks like a hot mess as you work it, but the final achievement is eye popping!

Step 1:  Cut a piece of plain card stock that will act as a template for your design papers.  Hint:  This is a good way to use those scraps!

Step 2:  Choose a few design papers that coordinate or compliment each other.  

Step 3:  Find dye inks that coordinate with the papers chosen,…


Slide Mechanism - 14 Steps with Pictures!

Posted on July 9, 2014 at 10:00pm 1 Comment

The slide mechanism is not my own development.  I saw a YouTube video with the information and adapted it to create a 3D card with a secret message.  It's really easy, and kinda fun!

Here are the components you will need to make a 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card.  These pieces / measurements can always be finagled to suit your own needs. 

A.  Standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 card.

6 of 30

This is the 2nd of the two pre-made cards for when I'm gone.  I wasn't sure where I was going with this one, but it turned out cuter than I expected!  The little bee is so stinking cute.

Thoughts:  I'm a little disappointed with the embossing powder.  I watched a video where a lady layered EP's to get a multi colored, raised effect.  I tried to add red tinsel EP to the heart wings, and it got every-frickin-where.  I don't know if it's the dry air due to it being winter, or if…

Andrea, thank you so much for your comment on my Witchy-Poo Junior card. I just can't resist using googly eyes especially on Halloween cards. I just looked at your very lovely gallery and I especially like the Patriotic Flower Power card.

Hi Andrea, thanks for the friend request.  I think the art journal is just more for me to enjoy.  It will be fun to try different techniques.  If I like something from there I guess I could try it on a canvas to display.

The card you asked me about I think I just die cut and took a piece of vellum and used copics ( spectum noir would work) on the back side of the vellum.  I just used colors I wanted behind the cutouts. Hope that makes sense.

I'm glad you liked my card. I really love that die. I just picked it up and couldn't wait to use it.  :)

Andrea ~ Hi!! Thanks for the nice comment you left for my 'Little One' card. The background was done with Flat Fabios [by Lindy's Stamp Gang]. I just used the Carribean Blue and Pineapple]. I hope it's not 'cheating' to use sprays, but I'm just learning to use them, and like them a lot!
