This card really challenged me because this is not a color combination I would normally put together. However I ended up really liking it. The black just really pops. And you know me, I always have to have some sort of bling. Thus the glimmer paper feather. It had to be done.
Tips & Tricks:
Pattern Combinations: I love combining patterns. The polka dots and chevrons is a super popular pattern combination. Generally speaking putting a large print with a small print is also a great idea.
Feather Framelits: When you use feather framelits the little piece at the end of the feather sometimes sticks. Use a paper piercer to carefully push the end of the feather out of the framelit. It will pop right out.
Project Life by Stampin' UP! Holiday Cheer: Don't let the fact that you don't "DO" Project Life stop you from picking up this gem. This is a great stamp set for cards and ESPECIALLY for making tags. You will not be disappointed.

Last but CERTAINLY NOT LEAST! I have to say Happy Birthday to my sweet girl today! She is 6 years old. I do not know where the time has gone. I feel like it was yesterday that I had her. Time is flying by so fast. Just for the record she picked this cake out! LOL. Uncle Si is her favorite. So she ate his face. HAHA!
HAPPY FREEBIE FRIDAY everyone! Today I have a fun post. I love this new framelit in the Holiday Catalog. I can see LOTS of fun stuff coming from this. I did a video below and also a quick photo tutorial on how to emboss it since it's too big for an embossing folder. Do me a favor? Will you pin this tutorial all over pinterest for me please? I would really appreciate it :) Thank you for helping me! Last weeks Freebie Friday winner is: Pam Martin, contact me to collect your prize.

Well I must say this year's 2014 Stampin' UP! Holiday Catalog is AWESOME. I know, you just think I am saying that because I am a demonstrator and I have to. UM NOT SO! I totally love the catalog. My very favorite are the "redneck" santas! LOL.... Most everyone I know hates them, ok dislikes them... but I LOVE THEM! They totally scream country hillbilly... which I am, just with teeth. HA! Maybe I am more country hillbilly chic (sheek). LOL OK enough about that. Check it OUT!!! Here it is... You can see the video below and check out the supply list from yesterdays card.
The new Fall Fest stamp set and framelits is definitely in the WOWZA category as far as I am concerned. I really love the stamp set and the matching framelits. You can come back tomorrow and order them :) YAY! Here is the video ... below I have some tips for you on making this card and my supply list for this card will be on my post tomorrow.
Tips & Tricks
The Raised Frame: Framelits are awesome for creating raised frames. You just cut them out of the center of your paper and then layer paper or photos or even stamped images under neat. Fun and easy.
Creating a flag: Use the 1" Square punch at one end of your paper to create the flag end. This is super quick and so easy.
Good Greetings: The Good Greetings stamp set is amazing. You can only get it FREE with a workshop or place your own $300 order, get $50 in free product and the Good Greetings stamp set :)

Tips & Tricks
The Envelope: It's hard to see in the photo above but I lined an envelope to go with this card. I really love it. Lining envelopes is such a fun way to really step up a card. See my tip for using the envelope liner framelits in the photo below.
Bright & Bold: The more I learn about color the less I fear using it. LOL. I really have a hard time putting color together. It doesn't come natural for me. So if you struggle with this... use colors in the same Stampin' UP! color family. Like Brights (bolds), Subtles, Regals. It's almost a fail proof way of ending up with gorgeous projects.
Step It Up: Again the step up on this card would be lining the envelope. Another fun step up would be to punch a few stars out of glimmer paper and add them. Every card can use some bling.
