Here is a super easy card making technique that creates a unique look - the Retiform Technique! Be sure to read all the way through this post to see more samples and get the FREE quick-reference guide.
I made these sample cards with the Ranunculus Romance, Simply Fabulous, Botanical Layers, and Quiet Meadow stamp sets from Stampin' Up!®
All you need are stamps, ink, cardstock, sticky notes, and some sort of blending tool like a blending brush, sponge, or dauber. Create two lines down the card with the sticky notes leaving the section between them open. Then, blend ink at the edges. Repeat going the opposite direction. Then, replace the sticky notes and stamp in the different sections.
To see exactly how easy it is to do, watch this week's video tutorial. Every Tuesday night is stamp with me Tuesday. The first Tuesday of the month always features a technique. I hope you'll join me for the next stamp with me Tuesday at 8pm Eastern on YouTube or in the On Y Go! Stamping Facebook Group!
The Garden Greenhouse stamp set and coordinating Greenhouse dies from Stampin' Up!® are perfect for making window cards. For this card, I wanted to add a little frosting to the windows, so I added a layer of vellum between layers of Basic White cardstock.
The Garden Greenhouse stamp set and dies are being retired and are only available while supplies last. Plus, in June, you can get the dies for 50% off! What a steal!
I used adhesive sheets on the back of the Distressed Gold paper to make it easy to add the delicate greenhouse to the card front. This card would be perfect for so many occasions - weddings, birthdays, thinking of you, and more!
If you missed my live demonstration, be sure to watch the replay. I shared lots of tips for creating this beautiful frosted window card - including what not to do! Lol. You'll definitely want to learn from my mistakes.
I have the complete supply list for you and a peek at the inside of this beautiful handmade card. So, on y go! Let's get stamping.
The May Online Card Class & Game Night featured the Your Biggest Fan stamp set. We made three cards with these fun stamps including a fun fold card for Father's Day!
Since my husband is an avid baseball fan, I knew I needed the Hey Sports Fan suite of products from Stampin' Up!® I didn't realize just how versatile these stamps and dies are!
While the Hey Sports Fan patterned paper has a distinct baseball look to it, these stamps and coordinating Sports Event dies can be used for other cards as well. I have a great sample card below that I think would be perfect for a child or grandchild's opening night in their school play or band concert. And these dies would be fabulous for scrapbooking!
When I was little, I always wanted to be an artist. I never had the patience to learn how to draw or paint though. That is why I love rubber stamping! It makes it so easy to create something beautiful and artistic without having to be able to draw or paint!
Today, I have three faux watercoloring techniques to share with you. These techniques are all easy and create beautiful results quickly!
You can do these faux watercolor techniques with any bold image stamp. I chose the new Wildflower Path stamp set from Stampin' Up!® These cards are done in the same color scheme of Old Olive, Melon Mambo, and Daffodil Delight.
I shared how to do these easy faux watercolor techniques in my YouTube live this week. If you missed it, check out the replay to see how easy these cards are to make.
You'll find more information and the supply list below.
We created these fabulous fun fold gift card holders for this week's Stamp with Me Tuesday. They have a circle at the top where you can stamp a sentiment or an image and a top flap that folds over the circle. Then, when you open the fun fold card, there is a place inside to tuck a gift card.
Using patterned paper like the Hues of Happiness, Abigail Rose or Design a Daydream Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!® makes these fun fold cards easy to make! However, you could also stamp images or add additional decoration like I did with the cards using the Sweet Songbirds and Happiness Abounds stamp sets.
If you missed my live demonstration, you can watch the replay to see exactly how to make this card. You'll also find a FREE Quick-Reference Guide with all of the cutting dimensions for this fun fold design at the bottom of this post, so be sure to read all the way through. And of course there are links to all of the supply lists for these cards.
