Download Bows Many of us hate to tie bows. There are four types of bows that are great to add to our cards. The classic knot. This type of bow is very simple. You take a piece of ribbon around five-six inches long. Hold each end and then wrap the left end over the right end, pull through. Pull gently to avoid twisting or wrinkling. This is the most simple bow to make. The classic bow. Fold the ribbon back and forth to form 2 loops (bunny ears). Tie the two bunny ears together, left over right. Pull gently. Trim...

Beats Me, So What is the Difference So often my customers and students ask me, so what is the difference between a Framelit and a Thinlit? Framelits has an open center so you can place them anyplace you want on a stamped image. You can use two of the same shape in different sizes to make a frame. The magnetic plate is wonderful when working with these since it will hold the Framelit in one place. These are very useful and come in a wide variety of shapes. They are grouped so each is a smaller or larger size that... Continue reading

PEARLS, RIBBONS, AND RHINESTONES! What lady doesn’t like a little accessorizing?

These items can change your card from a plain, simple card to a “WOW” card. Not only do they dress up your card, but they are great for covering little “bobos”.... Continue reading

EMBOSSING VELLUM Embossing on vellum is just as easy as embossing on card stock, but gives you a whole different look. It is more muted than on card stock, giving you a softer look, or toning down something you feel is too vibrant for the look you are after. The only caution I would give you is be careful not to overheat your vellum when you are embossing. Card stock can scorch if you heat it to long with the heat tool, and so can vellum. Once your embossing powder has gone shiny, it is done, no more heat required!... Continue reading

There are several techniques that I have learned in the past called Brocade or Silk Brocade. This is the easiest that I have found and I think it is beautiful You can do this with any foil paper if you have matching embossing powder. This is so simple, but rich looking. Use an embossing buddy to rub over the foil to keep the embossing powder where you want it. Ink your stamp using a Versa Mark pad. Cover with matching embossing powder and shake off excess. heat until all the images are embossed. Bingo! Your background is ready to be... Continue reading

The card front was done mainly with scraps laying on the work table. I had cut the gold metallic heart out for another card and the gold scrap was... Continue reading
