Make Your Own Stencil

Hey there! It’s #TexturalTuesdays over in The CLASSroom and I have a new post showing how to Make Your Own Stencil.  In my post I simply use Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies and acetate. So super easy.

I made the card below using the stencil I created from acetate, the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Holiday Words by Julie Ebersole ,with a little texture paste, and some glitter for shimmer.

Please be sure to check out the post in The CLASSroom for the full details on how to Make Your Own Stencil (and please don’t be mad when you see how easy it is. HAHHA!!) The great thing about using your favorite dies is that the possibilities are endless.

To give the card added texture, the Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Stitches Cover Plate by Julie Ebersole was used on a piece of Bazzill Card Shoppe Wax Lips Cardstock and the edges were then distressed. I love doing this.

The key in making anything? Is to make what you love. Same goes with stencils, I suppose. And I had a great time making this card. I hope it shows.

Thank you SO much for joining me today and for checking out my how-to in The CLASSroom.  I do appreciate every one of you. xo

Oh Happy Day

Aaaaand it’s #TexturalTuesdays!! Yay!! Oh Happy Day! Which also happens to be the sentiment that I used from the very sweet Oh Happy Birds Stamp set that I used for my card today. My card in The CLASSroom with Ellen Hutson is featuring Mama Elephant and Molotow Masking Pens.

I may have tried too hard to make the pens work. Or overthought it. Which I do. It’s not rocket science, but when something is new to you, and you’re really NOT sure what to do with it or how to fit it into your world…overthinking comes soooo easily. ;)

Here is a photo of my Oh Happy Day card:

I love using loose watercoloring for backgrounds. The Molotow Masking Pens are very useful in keeping desired areas completely free of ink and paint. I do believe that I need more practice in using them, however. (Keeping it real.)

It gets frustrating when you just want to complete your project and all you do is mess up, though. *sigh*

If you have one of these pens I’d love to hear your feedback! Now that mine is done, though? It really IS “Oh Happy Day!”

Please check out my complete post on The CLASSroom Blog for all my pics and my full step-by-step whinefest details on how I made the card with tips and tricks.

Fuse-Able Thank You

Wow! Busy day! I’m also on The CLASSroom Blog today with a #TexturalTuesdays post and a cool Fuse-able Thank You card that I made using the We-R-Memory Keepers Fuse Tool!

Fuse-able Thank You

My Fuse-Able Thank You card was really fun, but took me forever to make. This tool gets extremely hot. Like a glue gun where you scream and your fingers are instantly welded together. (Ask me how I know.)  Or maybe it’s just me that screams like a small child with hot tools? (Please tell me I’m not the only one.)

Anyway, I would suggest watching a plethora of videos before even thinking of starting with the We-R-Memory Keeper Fuse Tool. If my card looks vaguely familiar? It’s because I CASE’d Julie Ebersole’s amazing card from YouTube HERE <— (click). Not gonna lie. Her brilliance blew my mind and I loved the way she used the patterned paper and went from there. That Julie is one creative chica!

Without scorching my fingers off I even made a teensy pocket for a few glittery hearts. A hole was punched and baker’s twine was threaded through to attach the small pocket to the larger one.

I can see a lot of variations of the above card, especially for Christmas. How fun would that be? Even making a small version for a little something special for each card. I LOVE that idea!! I might have to start now as I’m a renowned procraftinator. ;)

Lisa Adametz Concord & 9th Thanks Card

The quality of stamps and dies from Concord & 9th is second to none. They are so on trend with their designs, too.  I knew almost immediately what I wanted to create when I received my products. My heart pitter pattered!! ♥

I love that so many people are Celebrating with Concord & 9th and that the Ellen Hutson, LLC team is able to play along this week. It’s fun to see what other creative people do with the same products.

Please check out the CLASSroom blog to see how I made today’s card.  Thank you, as always, for joining me today!

Felt Flower

Hey there! It’s another #texturaltuesday over on the CLASSroom blog for Ellen Hutson, LLC and I’ve made a super cool Felt Flower on a canvas that I hope that you’ll check out. The link is right HERE <—.

Today’s project is a feature that all the Ellen Hutson designers are doing this week and that is to work with felt in their projects. It was really fun! I always love making felt flowers and the canvas that I made for today is certainly no exception. 

Here is a look at the canvas with the felt flower.

Felt Flower

The die for my flower is from Memory Box (it is the Plush Ranunculus) and the felt is from Taylored Expressions (the assorted yellow -orange). 

Making projects like this is so much fun! I was able to get super painty with the background.  And, though I got carried away with the sequins, I really like how this turned out. The big, bold felt flower really makes this small canvas so happy.

The full tutorial and *tons* of photos for how I made this canvas is over on the CLASSroom blog , so please head over there for more information or if you’d like to just see how I made the canvas.

As usual, all of my supplies are listed below.  If you have any questions on the products, please send me an e-mail or comment below. Thank you!!
