I Remembered and Thought

PPA 248

Today’s card is my interpretation of Pals Paper Arts sketch challenge #248.  I made this card for a family member who’s birthday I didn’t forget, but simply just kept pushing it to the next day and the next day. But it did go in the mail and I’m gonna stick to my story when I say, “That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.” LOL

MAGGIE MADE TIPS: Not in cash, but great crafting recommendations.

  • Black & white photo: How do you make a photo look as if was taken in B & W? Use whisper white, basic black, and the Sweet Dreams Designer Series Paper to make it look like the photo was taken in B & W. Although I used Real Red ink, the photo looks as if the sentiment was the only color that was highlighted using new technology don’t you think?

Stamp Class Week – One Sheet Wonders

IMG_4989 IMG_4990

This week (Fri., April 17th at 6 pm) my Stamp Class will make these six cards from the Painted Blossoms Designer Series Paper pack. The paper is perfectly designed to use as backgrounds and so easy to make.

If you live in Solano County, you can register to attend the class here.

Supplies Needed to Make Your Own Painted Blossom Cards

How to Make the Cut

  1. Cut 1-1/2″ from the bottom where the stems are.
  2. Cut the sheet vertically at 4″ and 8″.
  3. Cut the 4″ strips horizontally at 5-1/4″.

You will have six 4″ x 5-1/4″ pieces and all you do now is adhere them to the card base (4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″). Stamp them and attach the tags and adhere the sequins.

If you prefer to buy the cards already made, you can purchase the set on The Card Shop for $30. You get the cards, plus a decorated container for you to store your cards. 

or you can purchase the kit for $23 and all you’ll need to do is put them together. However, you will need to purchase the adhesive and stapler separately.

Happy Happy Happy with CYCI #65

CYCI #65

My card today is an inspiration from the Can You Case It card challenge. As you know, I have to practice what I preach and I love card challenges. They have helped me expand my skill as a cardmaker and a challenge is always good for the soul.

My scraps are never thrown away in my craft room because I know they will find their way into a card somehow. Today was the day…LOL.  Yes, even the flap lining on the envelope was scrap. What made it easy to choose the ink color was matching it to the scraps. That’s what so great about Stampin’ Up! (and I think you’ll agree) they make everything match for you!


MAGGIE MADE TIPS: Not in cash, but great crafting recommendations.

  • Save Your Scraps. Why? For the reason I mentioned above. I keep every piece of my negative leftovers when I use my framelits. However, sometimes I use that negative space as a template to daub color inside of it and create the same image with ink.
