Woo hoo – Today’s card. I did a new technique on this card. I don’t know if there is a name for it. I inked my brayer and I ran it over the raised side of an embossing folder. I then put my card front in the folder and pressed it and rubbed it and pressed it and rubbed it and the image was then on my card front. I used the Stripes Embossing Folder for this technique and I really like the way it turned out.  Another neat technique I did was with the clay flower. I smushed ( is that even a word?) the flower into the Daffodil Delight ink pad. I then used my aqua painter and painted Melon Mambo in the crevices of the flower to give it a two-tone look. The flower turned out very nice. Have a look. 🙂

Hello

Here’s a project Lindsey Hortin made with the This Makes Me Happy Pocket Cards. Lindsey used gel medium to transfer the image to a canvas board. It was her first time, so don’t judge too harshly (because she’s trying not to). Let’s just say that Lindsey needs to be a little more patient and needs some more practice. On the other hand, it does say, “THIS IS LIFE,” and let’s face it—life is imperfect and a little messy.

THINLITS CARD DIES

 

They’ve been called flip cards, flip flop cards, swing cards, and more-but they have always been a bit tricky to create. Not anymore! Our amazing new Thinlits Card Dies cut and score to create a card that flips in just one step.

Item Description Price

133480 Circle Card Thinlits Die $32.95
Available August 1, 2013

There are some products you just have to see in action before you realize how much you need them, right? This is one of them! Plan to feature these dies in your events and share the video. When your customers see what they can do, they will place their orders.

These new card dies come with extra die pieces that have versatile designs, so you can use them on other projects, not just flip cards. (The Circle Card Thinlits Die comes with 10 total pieces; the Label Card Thinlits Die comes with nine total pieces.)

With the number of dies you’re getting, plus the die that creates the card itself, the price is a great value-especially to create an interactive card!

  • Promote mass production of these impressive “flip” cards. They would make great announcements, invitations, or Christmas cards. You can even help your customers select all the supplies they will need to create their cards.
  • These Thinlits Card Dies will be available at least through the 2013-2014 catalog year, so you can feel confident investing in them and promoting them for many months to come.
  • The main shape in the cards (circle and label) can work with a lot of our stamp images so you can create tons of different kinds of cards using many different stamp sets. Here are just a few suggestions to get you started:

Circle Card Thinlits Die (item 133480):

  • Worth the Wait Stamp (item 131094 W)

Thinking of You

Hi Everyone

OUCHIE- OUCHIE- OUCHIE- OUCHIE, I had a bad migraine yesterday. I spent most of the day in bed – yuck. I am better today – yippee – yippee!!

I have a really cute card for today – at least I think it’s cute. I hope you agree. I used a white gel pen to make the dots in the  middle of the flowers – otherwise they were really plain. I think it dressed up the flowers quite a bit. If you look closely at the card you can see where I used the Score Board to make two line borders around the card and the focal point fits perfectly in the center of this border.
