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

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!
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. ;)

Hi everyone! I made a funny card!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?!! ;) It’s actually for my post today on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog. And it also happens to be for my dad’s birthday. Shhhhhh….don’t tell him it’s here. It’ll be our little secret until the 22nd, okay?
The card was so much fun to make. I love utilizing a lot of color in my card-making. The background is created by blending Distress Inks over a piece of water-color cardstock. I like the texture this type of paper gives the background. Smoother paper would not make it look this way, but I’m a texture freak. This is no surprise.
The use of many sizes and thicknesses of 3D Foam Squares from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® are what really bring this funny card to life. Okay, maybe the super cute sentiment, too. ;)
I hope that you’ll check out the blog post on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today to learn a bit more on how I made this funny card for my daddy-o.
The stamp set that I used is called Essentials By Ellen Clear Stamps, Stay Salty by Julie Ebersole and the matching die set is Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Stay Salty by Julie Ebersole they’re so FUN!!
I’ll see you back here on Tuesday for something super exciting!! Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thanks for spending part of it with me. ♥
Happy Saturday! I have this pretty Hello Sunshine card up on the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L® blog today. It features one of my favorite products: pigment powders. They are so versatile and can add shimmer and shine in a variety of ways.
Here is a peek at the Hello Sunshine card that I made for the blog today:
Use Distress Inks (or a similar water reactive dye ink) to create the base colors for the center sun ray by sponging on with a mini-ink blending tool and using water to “bleach” certain areas of color off.
Mix water with the pigment powder to create a very wet, shimmery mixture. Dip a paintbrush into the mixture and tap over the surface to create a splatter. When lightly dabbed off, this can create a bleached effect. Heat dry or allow to heat set. Do this for each pigment powder.
A focal piece such as this Sun Ray (Essentials by Ellen Designer Dies, Silver Linings by Julie Ebersole) is very easy to create, can be done using so many different colors, and with many different dies as well. And cheering someone up with a “Hello Sunshine” card could be just what they need when they need it most.
