San's Designs "Easel Card tutorial"


Hello!!!!
 
Can you believe it's Friday already? If this week went any faster I would see it ahead of me, hehe! (picture a full 360 degree turn)
 

Today it's my turn over at San's Designs , here is a sneak peak!
 
 
 
 
Also I thought I would do a tutorial on a very unique Easel card!  This card at first glance looks like a trifold or Gatefold card but when opened (you guessed it!) it is an easel card.
 
Here is another sneak peak!
 
 
 
I hope to see you there!!!!

Masculine Easter Card "Son"


Happy Thursday!!!!
 
If you have been following me you know that my hardest challenge is making a masculine card, as well I couldn't add too much dimension which is another big challenge for me!!!!, (the buyer of this card will be mailing it so she didn't want it to cost too much.)
 
I placed homemade SKITTLES on the lace down the left side so it would'nt  appear too girly, these Skittles are made by Carrie from Double Click AKA A Busy Bee 
  They went perfect with my vintage theme and they are only tiny, (Big Bonus)
 
Here is my card
Easter Greetings by Katherine Smith


I brighten this image to see if you could see all the shimmer and shine but it didnt' work, (pout, pout)



 
 
This Saturday I am having my first  "New Release", I hope you drop by!
 
Have a FABULOUS day!

Bunch of Tulips Easter Card using San's Design Digital Stamps



Happy Monday!!!!!
 
 
As you all know I am now part of the fabulous San's Design Team and although we haven't started yet I couldn't wait!!  I have a lot of Easter cards to make and San's digital stamps have just the right amount of cute factor I am looking for.
 
I bought this digital stamp here: 
 
 
Meet Bunch Of Tulips!!!!





Here is the card I made:


 
This card's shape happened by mistake, I was used my EK Circle Cutter  (never works for me) and made the worst circle you'd ever seen but instead of tossing it (knowing I wouldn't do any better on the next one) I used  Scalloped Scissors to cut along the bottom and it turned out to be more of an oval than a circle, well..?.. not really but ... (maybe deformed circle?) lol
I cut another (what ever you want to call it, with pattern paper and placed it behind the first one.
  I inked both of them with Shabby Shutters Distress Ink.  Phew! Did you get that? hahahaha
 
My card base started of 5 1/2" by 7" but I didn't like the way it look with my odd ball shape so I cut around it. In the end though all my mistakes I loved the look of it!!! 
 
 


I am so in love with this bunny!!!!  I paper pierced  the shirt that I created and colored the tulips with Spectrum Noir Pens, I added Silver Stickles that really make the tops of the tulips shine.. can't see it in the picture. I used Liquid Embossing over her cheeks and drew whiskers. I topped the whiskers with a very thin white line made with Dimensional Fabric White Paint.


Here is a side on view so you can see how I made the leaves shimmer using Pearlizing Medium.

 I am entering this card into Paper Playtime "Anything goes"
Challenges 4 Everbody  "Always Anything goes"
and
Craft Us Crazy " Anything goes"
Have A Terrific Day!!!
