Here's a card that speaks of spring. It is from Jeannie. She used the twisted paper technique to create a flower to embellish this card. Have you tried this technique yet? I have not tried it. I think it would be cute for a special scrapbook page.


Jeannie also distressed the edges of the leaves and crumpled them for some added interest and texture. The white box on the upper right could also be used for a sentiment.

Tuesday Tutorial # 96

One Big Meaning Thank You card

Have you noticed that I haven't been sharing all the new stuff that I have been getting during the demonstrator pre-order? Well, that's because I haven't had time to create any new projects. I had to schedule all my blog posts before my son and his girlfriend came for a visit. And then I was too busy doing sightseeing trips and other fun stuff.

I promise that now that I am back to the routine (but still trying to catch up on everything) I will start to share some fun new products.

Or, I will send you the Tuesday Tutorial by email if you will send me your email address requesting to be added to my Tuesday Tutorial list (please send it to me privately to the email listed in my contacts and put in the subject line "add me to TT list").

Okay, I know you must be wondering why I am sharing Betty's Autumn greeting card today. Well, I am getting really sick of all the rain we have had this spring and when I looked at this card I saw a big sun shining. I thought, "That would be really easy to switch out and create a spring themed card."

Use green on the leaves instead of the fall colors and switch the sentiment to say, "Hello Spring!"


Betty used the Kinda Eclectic stamp set. This stamp set is on the retiring list and will only be available through May 31, 2017.

Swirly Scribbles Thinlits Birthday Card

Do you have this thinlit set yet? Are you glad that it is being carried over for another year? I am glad, because I haven't had enough time to really use it and be creative with it. So I thought that I would play with it for the Tuesday Tutorial and this is what I came up with.

Welcome back to another Friday Friend Share.
Today I have another card from Kim to share with you.
The stamp set she used can still be purchased; it was new in the 2016-2017 annual catalog.


It is called Artistically Asian and has really nice sentiments for encouragement.

She created layers of color for the background. I don't know what inks she used. Distress inks are popular for this technique.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Thoughts and Prayers Encouragement Card

This uses the Baby Wipe Technique. I like it for this stamp set. I added a twist to the basic technique that I shared in my Wednesday 101 tutorial about the Baby Wipe Technique. In that tutorial the dots of ink were random. For this card the ink is placed in specific spots.

Yes, April finally had her baby. Now everyone can relax and go back to creating cards!

But this is just perfect for the occasion! Jeannie has created a giraffe card, and not in April's honor. I received it before all that started. ☺

I don't have any other friends or pen-pals who do encaustic wax painted cards. Jeannie does an awesome job. I love her encaustic wax stamped cards.

This is one technique that I have not tried.


Thanks for sharing, Jeannie!
