SBC Easel Tutorial ~

0
 Hello Friends,

Annette here for the Scrapbook Blessings Club and today for Friday's Cards.

Today I would like to feature my Easel Cards.

Easels are one of my most favorite cards I make and I try to utilize my Easels for various styles, its amazing what you can achieve, they are so much fun.

Tip of the Day:
I always use 285gsm for my Easel for strength to hold the heaviest of embellishments.

Now onto my project:

Here are some of the different designs I have used my Easels for:











  •  I always use 285gsm Easel Stand and I make my Easel separately to my platform.
  • Using an A4 Quill Metalique 285gsm Board I score with my Scor-Pal as per photo hereunder scoring at 2" ~  4" ~ 8"



  • Fold and join with double sided adhesive tape



  •  Cut your platform out measuring 9" X 6+1/2"



  • Cover your Platform and your Easel in desired designers papers and then place your Easel on top of your Platform with double sided adhesive
  • Your Easel is now ready to decorate for your project


 * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Thank you for visiting my Easel Card Tutorial today and I hope you have enjoyed this project.

Hello and welcome from Barbara. Putting up the tree and decorating our home for Christmas is a very special occasion. So today I am sharing a layout of this special event from this year.


For this LO I used one of the Teresa Collins collections from this year.

Supplies

word paper cut to 3x9inches
tree paper cut to 4x12 inches
red stripe paper cut 1 1/2 x 12 inches

white cardstock
frame
central image in frame
color coordinated cardstock in back of frame
red tag
tree paper clip
"Shining Moments" is from a CTMH stamp set from last year
other embellishments to your taste
dark green ink
bubble wrap


First attach the red striped paper to the very top of the white cardstock. Then attach the word paper lined up with the bottom of the white cardstock centered. Then attach the tree paper just below the red striped paper.
Stamp the two plain white sections of cardstock on the bottom with bubble wrap and dark green ink.
To make the framed image lay the frame on top of the background cardstock then attach your central image so it fits in the frame. Attach the frame to the background cardstock with pop dots for dimension.
Journal on the red tag and attach paper clip to the top of the tag.

Attach photos, frame and red tag to the layout. add embellishments as desired.

Tuesdays Project

0


Hi there, Cristina here to share with you a fun project I recently finished up using the Tim Holtz Clock. It was a process but the end result was worth it. I wanted to make sure to give the clock some texture as well as a vintage look to it.



The clock originally looked like this -
Tim Holtz - Idea-ology Collection - Assemblage Clock

I started by using some molding paste to give it some texture, I applied about 2 coats, I then added some gesso, also about two coats. The gesso allowed it to take in the color mist.

Other Supplies Used:
Prima- Flowers, bling
Tim Holtz - Ribbon (distressed in black), word bands, adornments, grunge board, black soot distress ink.
Heidi Swapp - black and pink mist
Michaels - pearl beads

I hope your enjoyed today's project too. If you have a questions or suggestions, please leave it in the comments. Also, you can join up to our Facebook group: Scrapbook Blessings Club for more fun, games, inspiration, tips and techniques. Thank you for stopping by and have a blessed day! SBC Design Team Member

SBC Teepee Tutorial ~

0
Hello Friends,

Annette here for the Scrapbook Blessings Club and today for Friday's Cards.

I would like to feature today the Teepee Card. 

The Teepee Card is extremely simple and quick to make and fun to decorate in various ways. 

For this Teepee Project, I have used the perfect My Besties Digi Stamp IMG690 and kept it simple by just adding a small amount of beaded trimmed edging, a Prima Flower/Leaf plus a Die Cut Feather in the contrasting Black Dot Designer paper.

Tip of the day:
Mark your Teepee Panels with a pencil for a guide to know which section/panel you want your co-ordinating designer papers to be adhered to





Now onto my project:-

  • I am using a Quill Metalique Board 285gsm for my Teepee
  • Cut 3 pieces measuring 6" x 6"

  • Score each of the panels across on the diagonal with your score board

  • For a guide to know where to attach your designer printed papers, it is a good idea to overlap your Teepee panel sections first to see how your panels will fit and which panel goes on in the order of your choice ~ I generally put a mark with a pencil for a guide
  • Cut two designer papers measuring 5+3/4" x 5+3/4" and score again on the diagonal

  • Cut each designer paper across the scored line and attach them to your Teepee with double sided adhesive tape in the desired order required
  • Once you have attached your designer papers  your Teepee is ready for attaching each panel section with double sided adhesive Tape
  • This is a very simple design to make ~ your Teepee is ready for decorating with your embellishments and digital stamps etc.




  • Here is my finished project ~ as you can see I have used the stripe designer paper for my main Teepee upper sections and the lower sections is the black dot print
* * * * * * * * * * * *
Thank you for visiting my Teepee Card Tutorial today and I hope you have enjoyed this project.

For any questions you may like to ask, please leave in the comments section and I will endeavour to respond as soon as possible.

I hope you can also join us at our Scrapbook Blessings Club and be blessed with this Tutorial.

Throwback Thursday: Glitter Embossing

2
Here is our Throwback Thursday Project...

Hey kids!  It's Cindy for the Scrapbook Blessings Club blog today and I've got a fun glitter embossing technique to share with you.

TiP:  Be sure and close your Versamark pad before applying the embossing powder.

Okay, grab the following supplies and let's get started :-)
Versamark pad
Embossing Tinsel (or you can use embossing pwd and glitter)
Heat tool
embossing folder
baby wipe

Steps:
1-open the embossing folder and generously apply Versamark to one side  (I used the raised side and got glitter coverage on the background of the embossed image)

2- put your cardstock inside the embossing folder and run it through your Cuttlebug

3- apply your embossing tinsel (this has glitter right in it)  or you can mix embossing powder with glitter about half and half ...should look like the photo below:
I started with a white piece of cardstock.  As you can see I missed a little spot with the Versamark...oops.

4- put excess embossing pwd back into the container.  Clean your embossing folder with a baby wipe.
5- heat the embossing tinsel/pwd/glitter with your Heat tool until it turns darker and starts to sparkle.

And here is the card I created with this glitter embossed background:
Add'l info:
5" square cardbase in white
Bugaboo Digital image - Reindeer Christmas Goodies   (They are having a sale-- 50% off all digital images until Dec 31st)
watercolor pencils
blender pen
Diamond Stickles
Glossy Accents - candy cane
Sew Easy floss in limeade
pop dots
PC embossing folder - Christmas set

Thanks for stopping by the SBC blog today!  I hope I've inspired you to grab your embossing supplies and make something cool!  I want to wish you and your family a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy, Healthy 2014!!

Have a blest day!

Cindy --- In Love with PAPER
