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.

Head to my store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: GS9S4AY9

or you can contact me directly.

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

Have a great day,

Jenny

CREATE A PINWHEEL TOWER CARD + VIDEO!

For our Friday Flicks today I show you how to create a Pinwheel Tower Card.

You might have seen these around. I have been fascinated with them and wanted to have a go. They are so easy – and they look so cool. You will want to try one yourself.

I have used the Tidings of Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Tidings and Trimmings Bundle.

Here are each of the other panels.

It can easily fold flat. This particular size is too large for a standard envelope but you can create your own OR cut the panels 2cm (3/4″) thinner and it should work.

I have the video below for you or it is now on Youtube to view. I give the measurements for them in Metric and Imperial but don’t stress I have the measurements below.

PINWHEEL TOWER CARD MEASUREMENTS

There are a number of versions around. This one was based on Karen’s card -> HERE.

Tower Base – 17cm x 14.8cm 7″ x 6″ Scored at 2.5cm, 5cm, 7.5cm, 10cm (1″, 2″, 3″, 4″)

Panels – 3 @ 7cm x 14.8cm 3″ x 6″

Designer Series Paper Pieces – 4 @ 14.4cm x 6.6cm 5 3/4″ x 2 3/4″

– 4 @ 14.4cm x 4.1cm 5 3/4″ x 1 3/4″

Hope you get to make one yourself.

The Tidings of Christmas paper is one that is reduced at the moment in the Paper Sale. This finishes on Monday. So not long to save 15% on it.

You can find it in my store -> HERE.

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.

RECESSED PANEL CARDS + A VIDEO!

For today’s video I wanted to create some Recessed Panel cards to share with you. In the video I show you how to make one version but I have some other variations to share too. Have you tried this technique? It’s a great way to showcase some beautiful papers.

Check the video. I have the other cards to share with you too.

This is the card created in the video. I think when I looked at it after I should have cut the top curve higher to showcase more of the paper. You just don’t think of that in the middle of filming. 🙂

This one is the same version using a different print of the Pansy Petals paper. I used the Basic Borders Dies to create the curves in both of them.

Instead of curves you could make straight cuts in the card. For a difference though cut the card vertically. This one uses the Hand-Penned paper.

What about adding the pretty papers on top of the recess. This is a great way of showing that beautiful paper. This one uses the Art Gallery Designer Series Paper. For this I cut 2 angle cuts in the bottom right corner of the paper and added strips of the Poppy Parade card behind to highlight it.

I hope you get to create these soon. Choose whatever way you like to.

STAMPIN’ UP! BUTTERFLY BIJOU MINI TREAT BAG + VIDEO!

Today’s project and video is a little different. I have a cute Mini Treat Bag for you. It’s using the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper. I also have a couple of other versions in this design.

You can check the video below and I have the measurements further down so you can refer back to it.

Here is the Mini Treat Bag.

Notice the bottom edge? I diecut the “hatch” type die on it. Whether you stamp or diecut on this you will need to do this before you assemble the bag.

I added a detailed Diecut butterfly from the Brilliant Wings Dies set cut in Mint Macaron. I diecut a stitched circle with the Stitched Shapes Die between the butterfly and bag to help separate the 2 so the butterfly doesn’t get lost on the bag.

Here is the video. If you receive this post by email the video may not show so be sure to head to my blog to catch the video or heat to Youtube.

I made 2 other versions too. A sweet one with the Dandy Garden Suite. It’s a great way to use the dandelion paper. Also one with the Whale of A Time Designer Series Paper.

SINGLE STEP CARD WITH BUTTERFLY BRILLIANCE + VIDEO!

Today’s Friday Flicks is a Fun Fold creating a Single Step card. I couldn’t help but use the new Butterfly Brilliance bundle – Oh! and the gorgeous Butterfly Bijou Designer Series Paper.

I have made this fold before quite some time ago. It is still re-pinned so many times on Pinterest and many people head back to my blog to see it. I thought it would be good to freshen it up. You can see the original card -> HERE.

Check out the card. It is a bit hard to capture it in photos. It folds up easily to mail too.

Single Step Butterfly Bijou Card

I have the measurements for the card and all the different pieces further below. They are available in Metric and Imperial.

Here is the video which is now on Youtube. (Have you subscribed to my channel yet?)

If you are receiving this blog post update via email the video may not show. Click on the title above and it should take you to the blog post.

This is the folded piece from the previous project just to show you how it is folded.

I hope you get to make one of these fun cards. They really are super easy.
