THE DOUBLE LAYER DUO TECHNIQUE + VIDEO!

I recently came across a card idea in a magazine I was reading. I thought it looked cool. I wanted to replicate it with our inks and stamps. So I did! I put together a video for our Friday Flicks for you to see how to create it yourself.

These are the cards. I call it the Double Layer Duo Technique. It’s an interesting twist on the Double Layer Stamping Technique if you have tried that before.

I have used the gorgeous Delicate Dahlias stamp set. This works so well.

For this technique you will want a stamp set with a number of images. I can’t wait to try this with some other stamps.

Here is the video.

The Delicate Dahlias stamp set is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with your qualifying orders over $180 AUD. There are only a few weeks left to grab this.

If you need to place an order and you are in Australia I would love to help you.

or you can contact me directly.

I hope you get to make one. Let me know.

Have a great day,

BEAUTIFULLY PENNED PAPER WEEK – HAVE A COLOURED BACKGROUND!

Another card for our Beautifully Penned Paper Week. Are you getting lots of ideas yet for this paper?

On this card you can colour the paper to create a lovely background. Not much more is needed really. Add a sentiment and add some pretty ribbon.

I have coloured this one in Mint Macaron. I have to say very quickly too. Oops! And my Dark Stampin’ Blends ran out. You get the idea though right. I thought I would show you anyway.

How cool though that the Soft Succulent ribbon matches so well. Add a little sparkle with the Be Dazzling Paper and you are good to go. 🙂

What other colours could you see yourself doing?

You would have seen the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper a lot now not just on my blog here but elsewhere on your internet travels. It is available as a free choice with your orders over $90 AUD for Sale-A-Bration.

Do you need to order any supplies to get creating??

21ST BIRTHDAY CONCERTINA WITH YOU’RE A PEACH PAPER!

I just wanted to share a special card with you today. Yesterday my gorgeous baby girl was 21. I can’t believe where that time has gone. We are a little peach crazy in our house with perfumes and creams and all kind of Peach Scented products. So of course it had to be the You’re A Peach Designer Series Paper.

I wanted to make the card a little different and found a sweet concertina style card. It’s just a little bigger version than a regular zig-zag type fold.

Here is the card from a few different views.

The ’21’ was diecut from the Be Dazzling Specialty Paper from Sale-A-Bration using the Large Numbers Dies (now retired but really I can’t get rid of those). The peaches were diecut from the paper.

I found how to make this style of card from Suzie’s blog -> HERE. The measurements are in imperial. I used those measurements as I was short for time so I haven’t got them in metric as yet. I will make another card later to share those.

I made another mini version of a concertina card as well that I will share in the next post. It is so sweet so you will want to see that.

Have a great day,

Jenny

WEDNESDAY’S WOW! #125 – STAMP WITH YOUR BLOCKS!

Wednesday’s WOW! #125 – Why not stamp with your clear blocks.

You might have tried this. I have to say I used to do this a while back to create some cool backgrounds but I forgot about it. I was reminded of this from Stampin’ Up! recently.

Use any size block. Try different ones even on the same card.

These project were created by Stampin’ Up! They have used the same stamp set (The Biggest Wish) in other languages too on these card.

Simply tap your block lightly on the inkpad and press on to your card. It will be patchy but that’s part of the fun effect.

If you want a multi coloured effect, ink up part of the block in one colour and the other part in another colour. Or ink it up all in one colour and sponge the edges or other areas on the block. You can lightly spritz the block with water too to give another different effect. Be sure to stamp this on Shimmery White card or Watercolor card if you are using the water.

Have fun with it.

Have a great day,

Jenny

CELEBRATE SUNFLOWERS EMBOSS RESIST CARDS!

Last post I shared a video with the Emboss Resist Technique using the lovely Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set. I thought I would share the second card with you that I showed right at the end. Hope you caught that one.

Here they are.

The Daffodil Delight card was created in the video and I showed the unfinished Granny Apple Green/Bermuda Bay.

What one do you like the best? I would love to know. I have to say the Granny Apple Green one is quite striking.

If you missed the video head back to the last post and catch it or it is now on Youtube. (Be sure to subscribe to my Youtube channel so you can catch the videos I share).

I hope you have a go at it. Send me email with your version. I would love to see.

Happy Stamping,
