It’s my turn to share a tutorial on Splitcoaststampers today.  After creating this little note holder last month, I thought it would be a fun project for a tutorial.

This little box was created out of Berrylicious cardstock. The edges were stamped with the flower cluster from Your Next Stamp Happiness in  Tumbled Glass Distress Ink before the box was assembled. Fancy Waves! Border Bling was added to each side.

Copy paper was cut in 3 1/2″ square and the corners were rounded.. Each page was stamped with the Flower cluster in Tumbled Glass Distress ink and a sentiment from Happiness in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.

Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers was written by Trudy Sjolander. She shows how to use dimensional adhesive as an embellishment. You can check it out HERE.

Since Trudy’s tutorial shows off Perfect Pearls, I thought I update our Poppin’ Pearls Tutorial and add it in the newsletter as Tutorials you might have missed. It’s been 6 years since I wrote it the first time around and it needed a makeover. I switched from Pearl-Ex (which need to be sealed) to Perfect Pearls.

I stamped an image from Unity’s The Artist in You in Perfect Medium ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die (they are unfortunately retired now) and brushed over it with Forever Green Perfect Pearls.

The oval was layered first on a piece of black cardstock cut and embossed with the next size up Petite Oval Nestabilities die, then on a piece of Celery Neenah cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Floral Oval Nestabilities die.

A piece of My Mind’s Eye Lost &Found 2 Breeze paper was cut and embossed with a Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded, stitched and May Arts ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip. The paper was adhered to the card base, white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Rectangle die. The ribbon was topped with a button, tied on with embroidery thread. Part of a black Finesse Rhinestone swirl and some Black Baby Bling Rhinestones finish off the card.

Today’s tutorial on Splitcoaststampers is for a Slider Box. When you open the drawer a slider message will appear.

A piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock was cut and embossed with a a Fancy Tag Three. The embossed part was sponged with Aqua VersaMagic ink and a sentiment from Verve’s Blessings stamp set was stamped in the center. Part of a Fancy That! Border Bling was adhered underneath.

The tag was adhered to a piece of October Afternoon Sidewalks Paper paper cut and embossed with the second largest Floral Oval Nestabilities die.  That was then adhered to another piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Label 10 Nestabilities die. The layers directly over the box were cut with  the largest Label 17 Nestabilities die. The Label for the box top was covered with more October Afternoon Sidewalks paper. More Fancy That Border Bling! as well as Rhinestones from the 72 count Rhinestone bling finish off the card.

Emily Keaton wrote today’s tutorial for Splitcoaststampers. She shows us how to create flower embellishments out of used dryer sheets.  I cut my flower pieces with the Blossoms Nestabilities die. The pieces were sprayed with Tattered Angel Marigold Glimmer Mist and held together with a Glitter Brad. The edges of each petal was lined with Lime Green Stickles.

The sentiment from Unity’s Itty Bitty Wonderful set was stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The edges of the circle were  sponged with New Sprout Memento Ink..

Pieces of Echo Park Hello Summer patterned paper were cut and embossed with two Foliage dies. The embossed part of the leaves were sponged with Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink and adhered to the flower. The flower was adhered to the lower part of the circle with dimensional foam.

The circle was adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Lace Doily Motif die. A piece of Echo Park Sweet Day paper was cut and embossed with a Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched before the paper was adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die. Part of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl finish off the card.

It was my turn to create a tutorial for Splitcoaststampers. I decided to create a tutorial on how to create shaped cards. I still get a lot of questions on how to do that. For my sample card I used the darling Blush Babette image from The Greeting Farm. It was stamped  in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. The image was cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die and colored with Copic Markers (Skin: E000, E00, E01 Hair: Y26, E33, E35, E37 Dress: R11, R12, R14 Socks: YR30, YR31 Ground: W3, W5, W7, W9).

The image was sponged with Antique Linen Distress Ink before it was adhered first to a piece of Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with the next size bigger piece of Petite Oval Nestabilities die, then on white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest  Floral Oval Nestabilities die.

Two pieces of My Mind’s Eye Follow Your Heart Be Happy paper were cut and embossed with a Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded, stitched and May Arts ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip. The paper was adhered to the card base, white cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Rectangle die. The ribbon was topped with a button, tied on with embroidery thread.

Three little flowers (Michaels) were adhered to the lower left corner of the image. The sentiment from Blush Babette was stamped in Tuxedo Black on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the smallest of the Petite Oval Nestabilities die. The sentiment was adhered underneath the bow.  Fancy That! Border Bling on the top right and part of a Silver Finesse Rhinestone Swirl on the lower left finish off the card.

In today’s Weekly Inkling we had the Smackin’ Acetate technique as the technique from the Archive. It was a tutorial I wrote a long time ago and needed an update BAD.

For my sample I used my new Distress Markers (Wild Honey, Shabby Shutter and Tumbled Glass) on Whisper White cardstock. I tried it with Neenah and Glossy cardstock, but Neenah was too soft and Glossy to slick. Whisper White seems to work best.

Once the background was dry, an image from Taylored Expressions Embrace Beauty was stamped over it withJet Black Archival ink. The image was cut out with a  Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The image was layered  first on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock cut and embossed with a Scalloped Circle Nestabilities die, then on more Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with one of the Parisian Motifs die.

A strip of  My Mind’s Eye Follow your Heart Be Amazing patterned paper was adhered to a bigger square of the same paper pack. The paper was cut and embossed with one of the  Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched.May Arts ribbon was threaded through the bigger layer before the layers were adhered to the patterned paper with dimensionals. The layers were then adhered to the card base, Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.

A sentiment from Make it Amazing was stamped in Jet Black Archival Ink on a piece of Solar White cardsttock cut and embossed with a Home Sweet Home die pack. It was tied to the bow with embroidery thread and a button. Parts of a black Finesse Rhinestone swirl finish off the card.

I created this card as a sample for the video tutorial for the Kissing technique. I started by inking the solid stamp from Verve’s Great Friend set in Cantaloupe Memento ink and Unity’s Giving it All Meaning Background stamp in Rhubarb Stalk Memento Ink. Next the solid stamp was pressed to the background stamp and then stamped on Neenah Solar White cardstock. Stems were stamped in Bamboo Leaves Memento Ink. Both the flowers and branches were cut out.

A sentiment from Great Friend was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on a piece of Solar White cardstock, that had been cut and embossed with a Classic Oval Nestabilities die. The oval was first layered on Kraft cardstock, cut and embossed with the second largest Floral Oval Nestabilities die, then on a piece of white cardstock that had been cut and embossed with a Lattice Motif die.

Two pieces of My Mind’s Eye Lost & Found Two Rosy Patterned paper were cut and embossed with a Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched before May Arts ribbon was tied around the layers. The sentiment panel and flower were adhered over it with dimensional adhesive. The layers were taped to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Rectangle die. Parts of a black Finesse Rhinestone and Sleek Strips Silver Rhinestones and Silver Baby Bling Rhinestones finish off the card.

When I first saw Tsukineko’s Goosebumps Texture Spray last summer at CHA, I knew I had to have it. You can create your own resist papers. You can also add great texture to your projects.

For this technique I added some Goosebumps Spray to a Blending tool. The image from the Butterfly Flourish was dabbed with the tool and stamped on  My Mind’s Eye Be Amazing Patterned paper, that had been cut and embossed with a Petite Oval Nestabilities die. After the spray dried, the image was sponged with Summer Sky and Pear Tart Memento Ink. The oval was layered first on a piece of Kraft paper cut with a Petite Oval die, then on a piece of Neenah Solar White cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Floral Oval Nestabilities die.

Two pieces of Be Amazing paper were cut and embossed with a Grand Rectangle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and stitched before May Arts ribbon was tied around the horizontal strip. The bow was topped with a button, tied on with embroidery thread before the layers were adhered to the card base, white cardstock cut and embossed with a Grand Scallop Rectangle die.

More patterned paper was cut and embossed with the smallest Petite Oval Nestabilities die, sponged with Summer Sky and Pear Tart Memento Ink before the sentiment from that set was stamped in London Fog Memento Ink. Fancy That! Border Bling on the top left corner finished off the card.
