Here's a fun an easy tutorial using the Butterfly Brilliance stamp set!  This tutorial uses the designer paper that is sold out so instead, stamp your image with Memento Black ink and add color with the blending brushes!

On Snap - Tutorial

Hello everyone!  Happy Tuesday!  I don't have a Tuesday's Tip Video for you today.  Some of you know that I have been running a snack bar at our high school baseball games.  We've never had a snack bar so I've been given the opportunity to run it and put the proceeds to my son, Adam's Memorial Scholarship Fund.  Games are on Tuesdays and Fridays so I am busy every Tuesday making cookies, brownies, hot dogs and tri-tip sandwiches.  If you know me...even just a little bit, you know that I fly by the seat of my pants...ALL THE TIME!  It's a quality that I don't like about myself and am TRYING to improve.  That said, although I think about making videos ahead of time, I NEVER GET IT DONE and I am so sorry. Our last home game is this Friday so I'll be back next Tuesday, April 27th!  Don't give up on me!  

I do have a really cute project tutorial to share with you today though!  I'm sad this stamp set is retiring along with the designer paper on May 3rd!

"Make-It Monday" - Many Messages

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all well and that you had a FANTASTIC weekend! Spring is in the air and the weather is so nice...I'm really enjoying it!  It will be hot before you know it so I'm LOVING the 70 degree weather!  We've had a couple of fires already so that is a bit worrisome....they are calling for a bad fire season, but I'm praying it won't be!  

Hey, welcome to this weeks "Make-It Monday" Tutorial!  

Many Messages

Supplies:

·         Stamp SetsMany Messages (154510); Bundle with Messages Die (156272)

·         Card Stock – Night of Navy (100867); Bermuda Bay (131197); Coastal Cabana (131297); Pool Party (122924); Basic White (159276)

·         Stamp Pads –Night of Navy (126970)

·         Misc. – True Love Designer Series Paper (DSP) (154281); Playful Pets Trim Combo Pack (152466); Blue Adhesive Backed Gems (153547); Stampin Dimensionals (104430); Mini Glue Dots (103683); Stampin SEAL (152813); Stamparatus (146276); Paper Snips (103579)

           

Measurements:  

·         Card Stock 1: Night of Navy- 4 ¼” x 11”   and     2 ½” x 2 ½”

·         Card Stock 2: Bermuda Bay- 4” x 5 ¼”     and     ½” x 2 ½” strip

·         Card Stock 3: Coastal Cabana- 2 strips @ ½” x 2 ½”

·         Card Stock 4: Pool Party- 2 strips @ ½” x 2 ½”

·         Card Stock 5: Basic White- approx. 6 ¼” x 5”

·         DSP: True Love DSP- 3 7/8” x 5 1/8”                   

           

Instructions:

1.    Fold the Night of Navy card base in half at 5 ½” and attach the Bermuda Bay 4” x 5 ¼” layer with Stampin’ SEAL.

2.    Next, attach the True Love DSP layer to the card front with Stampin’ SEAL.

3.    Create the ombre panel. Take the square Night of Navy cardstock (2 ½” x 2 ½”) and cover it with Stampin’ SEAL adhesive. Start at the top of the square and layer with the Pool Party, Coastal Cabana, and one strip of Bermuda Bay cardstock. Then, attach that panel to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

4.    For the sentiment we are using the Stamparatus. Line your Basic White cardstock and stamp in the Stamparatus and stamp using Night of Navy ink. You will be making several sentiments at once that you can use later. Also, you can use any of the sentiments on this card. There are lots to choose from. After you stamp then die-cut the sentiments using the matching Messages Die.

5.    Make a faux bow on the ombre square by laying your twine in the shape of a bow and using a glue dot to keep it down. I shared a picture of this so you can see what is under the sentiment. I do this to keep the bulk of the card down. If you tie a bow there will be a big lump!

6.    Add a Stampin’ Dimensional under your sentiment. I added one on the top and the bottom of the sentiment away from the twine then attach to the card. Use a Mini Glue Dot to attach one heart from the stamp set.

7.    Finally, add some Blue Adhesive Backed Gems to finish off your beautiful card.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!
