Wplus9 Design Clips: Joy To You & Yours

I'm back with another video. Today's video is a spin-off of the card I featured in my last video here. Often, when I'm illustrating or crafting, I create multiple variations of the same design. I will start with one concept and this will open the door to many options and variations. Instead of brushing them off, I often explore them to see where they will go. Watch below to see what I mean.

Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube.

You'll also get to see a bit of this card as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful weekend.

Project Supplies

Stamps: Winter Wishes, Poinsettia Patterns (Wplus9)
Ink: Purely Pomegranate (Stampin' Up!)
Cardstock: Aqua Mist, White (Papertrey Ink)
Other: Phrases, Joy #3 (Basic Grey/Sizzix); crochet thread (stash); glitter (Stampin' Up!); Tombow Mono Multi glue

Wplus9 Design Clips: Peace & Joy

Today's card features some pattern building using Fair Isle Backgrounds. I also wanted to try the faux chipboard technique that I've been seeing around blog land lately.

Watch above or watch at YouTube.

I enjoyed this layout so much that I created another using my favorite color combo. Be sure to watch until the end where I show you. I'm trying to get the hang of the video thing, and it's going much faster now. If there is something you like or dislike about the format, please let me know. That way I know what to keep doing and what to change! Thanks for watching, have a fantastic weekend!

Design Clips: Warm Wishes

Hey guys! I'm back as promised, with a holiday card and a video using a fun technique for faux snow.

Watch above or watch at YouTube.

I wanted to create 3 dimensional snow laying on the tree branch, but I didn't have any Liquid Pearls or anything on hand. I decided to try using my Glossy Accents with glitter to see if I could come up with similar effect. I think it turned out great, and I'll be using it again, I'm sure.

Project Supplies

Stamps: Love Birds, Winter Wishes, Classic Christmas (Wplus9)
Ink: Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Sahara Sand (Stampin' Up!), Versmagic Red Magic (Tsukineko); Antique Linen, Tea Dye distress inks (Ranger)
Cardstock: Kraft, Rustic White (Papertrey Ink)
Paper: Nordic Holiday (Basic Grey)
Other: lace trim (Simplicity); twine (Papertrey Ink); glitter (Stampin' Up!); Glossy Accents (Ranger)
