Hi, Diane with you today to share with you a tutorial of sorts for
my ‘Double Z’ fold card using the new stamp set
This card is really very easy to do and I will give you simple
directions, but there are great tutorials on youtube for it as well.
You want to start with an 8 1/2″ x 11″ piece of card stock.
Cut one piece 4 1/4″ x 11″
Score this piece (with the 11″ piece along the top)
at 2 3/4″ and at 5 1/2″ (this is the main base of the card)
Cut the next piece 3 1/2″ x 8 1/2″
Score this piece (with the 8 1/2″ piece along the top)
at 2 1/8″ and at 4 1/4″.
Fold as I have shown below.
Next you want to cut some pretty paper ‘cover’ pieces.
For the larger Z part of the card,
cut 1 at 4″ x 5 1/4″
and cut 2 pieces at 2 1/2″ x 4″
For the smaller part of the Z card,
Cut 1 at 3 1/4″ x 4″
and cut 2 pieces at 1 7/8″ x 3 1/4″
adhere to each z panel as shown
Using the photo below for reference, attach the smaller z panel to the larger z panel
Now we will make leaves for our card using a Mini Mister,
watercolor paper and the colors of Nuance listed below.
Spray your watercolor paper with water, lightly tap on the nuance color,
spray a bit more and repeat until you are happy with the colors
Once dry, cut out the leaves with your desired dies
(I used Impression Obsession small Leaves Dies)
I colored the Autumn Girlfriends image with Copics,
then applying a bit of glue with Nuvo Small glue pen,
I added Fall Leaves Glitter to the image leaves.
I then attached my ‘Nuance” colored leaves.
I stamped the rake and the sentiment with Versamark,
then embossed with Gold Fine Detail embossing powder.
I used Spellbinders Label Four to cut out the sentiment.
I also stamped the basket of leaves and used the same
Fall Leaves glitter as I used above.
I hope you will give one of these double z folds a try as they are really fun
and turn out so beautifully!
Thank you for visiting with me today!
Hi! It’s Eret here. Today I show you a card made with new Elephant Christmas Tree Digital Stamp Set 802.
Best part about digital stamps is that you can make them as big or small you need. I sized my elephant to fit behind the window. Image is colored with markers. I added a layer of glue with Sakura Glue Pen to his hat trim and covered it with Crystal Ice glitter. Same glue was added to the ornaments on the tree. Stars was covered with Aztec Gold glitter and some parts of the bigger baubles with Crystal Ice glitter. All Tree Ornaments was covered after glittering with Morning Dew Nuvo Crystal Drops to give them a glass effect.
To make the window frame I used a piece of white textured cardstock and cut a square holes with one of the dies from Nellie Snellen Photo Frames set. Top part of the window is partially cut with largest die from Spellbinders Labels Thirty-Six set. I covered window frame with Rock Candy Distress Crackle Paint. Apparently some speckles of Gray Nuance water-soluble powder was picked up in that process… I like it! Happy accident. Speckles of gray in crackled frame looks very nice. Behind the frame I adhered a piece of Acetate. To make it look like it has been snowed, I added Dimensional Glue to different places on the window and sprinkled Bridal glitter on top.
I found this glittered poinsettia flower and Holly branch from my leftover basket. To make them I covered piece of paper with 2 1/2″ Double Sided Tear-ific Tape. Branch is cut with Creative Expressions Holly Sprays die and flower with same company die – Classic Poinsettia. Branches are covered with Lator Gator and flower with Gypsy Red glitters. Same red glitter was adhered with Dimensional Glue to the branches. Flower center was made with Dimensional Glue and Aztec Gold glitter.
Background was so much fun to make. I took a piece of watercolor cardstock, placed Want2Scrap Bricks Stencil on top and used White Dreamweaver Embossing Paste to make the brick pattern. After removing the stencil I covered embossing paste with Bronze Rose Embossing Powder. I let the paste dry and used the heat tool to melt the embossing powder. Apparently the paste wasn’t completely dry, it started to bubble up in some places. I’m ok with it. Actually it gives more texture to the bricks. Space between the bricks was colored with Gray Nuance water-soluble powder. The wall was made before the window. Next time I try to remember to clean up the craft mat a bit better after using Nuance powders 🙂

Hi, Diane with you today!
I have a bright, cheerful and fun Halloween card
to share that is super easy to make using
some very cool products and a new stamp set (Stella Call Me Witch) from the
Sparkle N Sprinkle store!
I started out by cutting a 5 x 7″ black card stock base,
(which I later mounted on a slightly bigger green card stock).
Using a star stencil and Dreamweavers white embossing paste,
I embossed the black panel.
White the paste was still wet, I covered it with
Margarita Velvet Glitter.
It will look something like this…and don’t worry if you have a few
uncovered places, as you will be covering it up later anyhow.
I set the panel aside to dry completely
and printed my digital stamp
Stella Call Me Witch, then colored her with copics.
Brushable glue was added to her ‘hair’.
While her hair was slightly drying, I used a circle punch,
coated it with glue, then added Electrified Yellow Glitter for a moon.
I added the digital sentiment (part of the stamp set)
to the moon.
A few bats were punched, then coated with Black Ice Glitter.
For even more glittery goodness,
I outlined her hat and star first with Nuvo Glue Pen Small,
then added Reflection Velvet Glitter,
and her shirt with more of the Margarita Velvet glitter.
A green bow and ribbon were added along with a
Sizzix Scaredy Cat die cut that was totally covered
with Nuvo Glue Pen Large and then sprinkled
with Black Ice Glitter.
That’s it, she is all done!
Thank you for visiting with me today!
It’s Designer Jess here with a new creation to share with you. I grabbed my “Puppy Girl” stamp and went to work!
Step 1: Make your Background!
I used a piece of Sticker Paper to create my background! I took my Dreamweaver Stencil and rubbed the Hawaiian Soap over the back in order to prevent the stencil from sticking to the adhesive on the sticker paper and makes it easy to remove! I placed the sicker paper onto the soaped up side of the sticker paper and rubbed lightly to make it stick. Then, I took my Golden Wheat, Dogwood Rose and Denim Glitters and sprinkled randomly over the exposed adhesive. I used my finger tool to burnish the glitter in. I gently peeled off the sticker paper from the stencil and then sprinkled on Waterfall glitter, burnishing well. This fills in all the gaps that the stencil covered! Isn’t it pretty?
Step 2: Create your Image!
I started by taking a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock and stamping the Puppy Girl using Versafine Ink (I LOVE LOVE LOVE this new ink pad!). I took my aquapainter and used some of the Nuance HOT PINK watercoolor powder to give it a bright pink wash over the entire image. I tried to be very random – not a precise watercolor job!
Once my watercoloring was dry (you can use your heat tool to speed up the process), I trimmed the image down to the size I wanted. I used my Nuvo Fine Glue Pen to add some accent glitters. I love how precise you can be with this pen. I used the same 3 glitters (Dogwood Rose, Denim and Golden Wheat).
Step 3: Put it together and final touches
I stamped the sentiment using Versamark and sprinkled on some of the Antiquities Embossing Powder, heat setting. I cut the sentiment apart to better fit the card. I popped them up on Foam Squares (along with my image). I made a fun Glitter Ribbon using 1/2″ Tear-ific Tape and the Denim Glitter. It’s a super simple technique! Simple take a piece of your Tear-ific Tape and apply your glitter to both sides. I rolled it into a ribbon and tied it around the base. All layers were adhered using 1/2″Tear-ific Tape. I finished off with some Nuvo Crystal Drops in Crushed Grape.
I hope you enjoy this creation and can’t wait to show you my next card!
Until next time,
Happy Sunday to you!
Diane with you today to share a fun card I created with the new
stamp set ‘Halloween Cat‘.
I had an idea for this stamp as soon as I saw it
and hoped it would work…it DID…let me tell how fun and easy
the background moon is to create.
I first used a Mini Mister of water and sprayed it on
regular heavy 100# card stock.
just by tapping the bottom side of the jar .
( I have little holes in each lid that I keep a push in for no spills…
simply easy to remove when I need to use it).
I added more water and more Nuance until I was satisfied with the colors
You can tip your paper to move the colors around,
just be careful not to ‘muddy’ them together.
Set aside to dry completely or use your heat gun as I did.
Next is where my creative idea came in to play.
I asked myself if I could emboss over the Nuance
and that is what I did.
Once your paper is completely dry use your
Static Free Pouch to go over your paper
(this eliminates any embossing powder sticking where you don’t want it)
Ink up your stamp with Versmark
and stamp right over the Nuance colored paper.
Cover with Midnight Madness Embossing Powder,
then heat set.
I then used a circle die to cut out my background moon…
pretty colors aren’t they?
I set that aside and die cut a fence.
I coated the fence with Nuvo Glue Pen (large)
then added Lacy Lilac Glitter.
I next punched out a few bats and once again used the Nuvo Glue Pen
then sprinkled on Black Ice Glitter.
I also punched out a few pumpkins, added the Nuvo Glue Pen,
then coated with Energized Orange Glitter.
The sentiment was stamped in Versamark on a scrap piece
of the left over Nuance paper I created,
then embossed with Midnight Madness embossing powder.
I cut it to look like a sign and hung it on the fence.
The backgorund paper is onyx cordinations, embossed with a Sizzix
embossing folder, then sanded. I used a distress tool around the edges
for a more ‘spooky’ look.
I hope you enjoyed today’s tutorial!
