Five for Friday and a Cake Card Tutorial

Hello, everyone! It is Friday again! Five for Friday I’m sharing some cake inspiration today!   They look so good! Here is a card I was inspired to make! A Cake Card Tutorial The sentiment is a sneak peek to a new stamp set we are going to introduce in August. The cake was made from our Surface – Tag Die – Scallop Add-on. Diecut the rectangle label twice from pink paper and the scallop frame once from white paper. Layer the scallops on top of the labels to make the cake layers: Adhere the layers together and trim off the extra. The flower is made from our Rock My World Stamp Set and Die Set. Stamp the flowers on pink paper and die cut. Use a stylus and a mousepad to shape the flowers into little cups. Adhere the two flowers together with foam adhesive and you will get a great dimensional […]

Flower Punch Board Tutorial, Coupon + Giveaway

Hello everyone! Have you heard the news that We R Memory Keepers and American Crafts are now one company? I am excited about this acquisition. For my Studio post today, I used the new WRMK Flower Punch Board and some beautiful paper from AC/Pebbles Special Delivery. The flowers are BIG – ranging from 3″ to 9″ in diameter. I had so much fun mixing and matching the sizes. It is amazing how these beautiful flowers were made from a simple punch board and a stem kit! Flower sizes and simple directions are printed on the board but it took me a while to figure out how to fold the petals. Once you have it figured out, it will be very fun and relaxing! So I put together a quick tutorial to share today! Tutorial Flower Size: S (5″ dia.) Paper Size: 2-5/8″ x 12″ 1. Punch and Score: Follow the directions printed on the board. 2. Fold the […]

[Tutorial] Strawberry Rocks Card & Five for Friday

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! I was inspired by this rock painting project to make a card for today! Since I’ve been having fun playing with our Rock My World Stamp Set and Die Set lately, I immediately wanted to make strawberries with our rocks! And here is my take! How to Make Strawberries from Your Rock Stamps 1. Stamp the rocks on the card front. I’m using the reverse side of the “live, laugh, love” rock to get a solid image. 2. Stamp the leaves (from Flower Circles Stamp Set) and cut out. Cut about 1/16″ away from the stamped image will actually give it a more finished look. 3. Use a black pen to add some random dots to your “strawberries”. Wait until your ink is dry on paper to do this. The dots do not need to be perfect. 4. Use a white gel pen to add the seeds. […]
