Spring Card Class – Day 4 Coordinating Die Cut Trick

April 27th, 2020 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Online Card Class No Comments »

Julie Ebersole taught this class and she is always like a day of rainbows. She has a wonderful laugh and I always enjoy her videos.

This was such a cute idea and really enjoyed making this card.

Just a little cake
So the slight splatter was an error. Note to self, do not splatter cards near finished cards

Thank you for looking.

I am a huge fan of Yana Smakula and her cards. I saw her original card some time ago and thought “Wow this is awesome”. Glad I had the opportunity to try this technique.

I love Honey Bee Stamps and I have been holding onto these sets for a while. Glad I was able to use it
Hard to see but there is glitter on her scales

Just a little message
Left inside blank so it can be used for anything

Spring Card Camp Day 2 – One Stamped Paper

April 27th, 2020 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Online Card Class No Comments »

Today is using a stamp over a larger piece of paper and cut into two. I decided to use the Simon Says Botanicals. This ended up being taller cards so I could stretch it across both cards.

I ended up embossing the ink floral images because I wanted to color blend the background.

I liked what I planned but the color in the grass did not come out very good but overall I was pleased with the card.

Does it take anyone else 7 hours to make a card. Geez I am slow.

Thank you for looking.

Spring Card Camp – Day 1 Faux Embossing

April 27th, 2020 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Online Card Class No Comments »

Once again I have decided to take a card class. I have been falling behind in the card making and I was hoping this card class would inspire me to get into the mood and start cranking out card.

The first day of class is with Jennifer McGuire and faux embossing. I have not tried this technique before. Although I appreciate learning a new technique I really do not like it. Sorry. It looks kinda thick. But I do like the bunnies I used.

Deboss and Emboss cards
I even added a little surpise inside the card.

Thanks for looking!

Simon Says Stamp Limited Edition 2018 Halloween Kit

September 26th, 2019 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Simon Says Stamp Card Kit 1 Comment »

All my friends know I love Halloween, but they also know it takes me forever to make a card from a kit. What is a year to me….. Halloween will still stroll around.

Whenever I get a kit I try to make at least 5 cards. This time I made 13…. unlucky 13….. LOL

Just a little movie of the cards. I did this video to share the cards with my sister since I did not want to send 13 imagines.

I enjoyed making the cards and I do have my favorite.

Thank you for looking at my cards.

MFT Wednesday Sketch Challenge #451

August 26th, 2019 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Sketch Challenge No Comments »

It is time for another sketch challenge. For this challenge I got out those cute little squirrels. To think, I almost did not order them.

I am not sure if I am just channeling Autumn in early or just loving the whole squirrel thing. But the oranges, brown and dark creams just get me all excited.

Thank you for looking at my card.

MFT Camp Create 2019 Part Two

August 20th, 2019 klwade Posted in Crafts, MFT Camp Create No Comments »

Well i managed to do all 5 cards! Whooo Hooo

I have been working so late everyday it has been hard to get the cards done. But I did not want to lose the opportunity to win an awesome prize from My Favorite Things.

Well here we go.

For the first card is the Inlaid Made Easy. I had an idea to do a stripe pattern with paper and do the WISH die in the middle. The only problem I had was finding thin enough paper that coordinates.

The Next card was a masking card with a background stamp. I decided to do a deep navy with gold embossing masking the middle for the sentiment. Very simple, yet beautiful

Next is my Favorite…. The background is a bunch of jellyfish embossed with Fairy Dust Embossing Powder and smeared with glitter. Then of course the mermaid swimming by.

This ia a purple beauty. Nothing like purple to wish someone a birthday.

And Finally is the monochromatic card. I went with a simple monochromatic background with the cirle frame. Add a cute birthday bear and we are all set.

MFT sketch challenge #449

August 12th, 2019 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Sketch Challenge No Comments »

Decided to take another shot at the MFT sketch Challenge since I just received my order in the mail.

I ordered the cute little squirrels. Anyone who knows me, knows I just love squirells. To some, they are furry rats, but to me that are cute whimsical critters with cute personalities. I once had a squirrel who lived in my backyard. I called him Mr. Beeve. He wasnt afraid of me and would sit on the edge of the bird feeder when I filled it with sunflower seeds. I was so tempted to touch him but decided to respect him. He use to have a partner and the two of them would chatter and chatter away. But sadly his girlfriend was killed by a car. So it was just me and Mr. Beeve for a long time.

The sketch this week looked easy but darn it, I did not have those great dies.

Maybe if I win, I can order them. So I made do with an older Blueprint set that had a half circle.

I had fun coloring these little guys while watching Season 4 of Outlander.

Inside is a cute little message. I never have enough birthday cards and I always forget to mail the cards out.

I decided to add this to the Simon Says Challenge since I am using a die cut.

MFT Weekly Sketch – 448

August 4th, 2019 klwade Posted in Cardmaking, Crafts, Sketch Challenge, Uncategorized No Comments »

I have been trying to make cards again and I need something to get me into the mood. Looking at the weekly sketches gives me ideas to take out those stamps, dies and copics.

This week the sketch is a simple one.

I decided to go thru my MFT stash and see what image would work great with this layout.

I selected this very cute set called Polynesian Paradise.

To compliment the set I used the Echo Park “Best Summer Ever” paperpack.
