Swing Fold Card with Poppies

So I waited a few weeks to post this card project on my blog.  My Video has been out for a few weeks now on My YouTube channel.  I would completely appreciate your following so be sure to subscribe. 

It seemed like all my current projects have been with the Peaceful Poppies Suite so I have been trying to go to some other great things in my stash.  Well, let me tell you... I keep reaching for them!  Must mean I really like the suite, and well, I do.  Everything coordinates just so, you can make some quick and easy projects or really doc them up into intricate pieces of art. 

For this project I show you how to make a SWING FOLD CARD.

More Black Ice Projects

Sometimes when I do a special technique or style of card, I just need to keep going with it!  It's like finding that perfect pair of pants and buying them in every color...LOL!  

Several weeks ago I shared my Black Ice Technique card, which turned into several more, so I have to share them with you.   Be sure to click on the bold words in the previous sentence to see my previous post too.

My first projects is using the Magnolia Lane Suite and Champagne Foil Sheets.  I also used the Everyday Label Punch for background interest.

SHIMMER PAINT-ing

SAVI Sunday - 12:  Painting with Shimmer Paint.

I saw this video a while ago and thought, hmmmm, I can probably do something similar with our Shimmer Paints.  And even though it did not go totally according to plan, I still like the outcome.  

PicsArt_04-19-06.23.21

I heat embossed the floral image from the Band Together stamp set with Gold Embossing powder on Basic Black card stock.  (full product details below).  Make sure to use your Embossing Buddy lightly on the black card stock and then stamp your image and words with Versamark.  Embossing powder will stick to the Versamark.  Use your Heat Tool to melt the powder.

I then painted on Frost White Shimmer Paint and colored over with re-inkers.  

You can see how I did this in my SAVI Sunday video:

Although I did not show in my video, the full floral bloom center is where I used Pineapple Punch re-inker.  You can use any yellow re-inker for the center, or for the other colors too.  Use your imagination and change up the color scheme. 

It sure was hard getting a good image of the shimmer and color at the same time.  You should see it in person!  WOW!

Card pieces:

  • Basic Black card base 5-1/2 x 8-1/2
  • Layer of Melon Mambo 5-1/4 x 4
  • Layer of Gold Foil 5-1/8 x 3-7/8
  • Top Basic Black is 5 x 3-3/4

I hope you enjoyed this new technique and new way to use your Shimmer Paints.

Noble Peacock in 3 Colors

PicsArt_04-09-09.22.08

Guys, I have no idea what I have been waiting for!  I do not know why I have neglected this really cool stamp set, dies, and the BEST foil papers!  The Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper AND Noble Peacock Foil Sheets are just stunning.  I love that fact that they coordinate together.  

I have to laugh at myself... every time I look at the tail feathers, all I can think of is a Vegas Showgirl costume.  LOL!

Anyway, here are three monochromatic cards I did in Blueberry Bushel, Old Olive and Bermuda Bay. Yes!  Bermuda Bay... I think this is a BONUS coordinating color with the Specialty DSP, don't you?  The catalog and packaging says Pretty Peacock but I think you can use either one.

  • Card base is standard 8-1/2 x 5-1/2"
  • Specialty DSP is 5-1/4 x 4"
  • Mat under white measures 5-1/4 x 2-3/4"
  • Whisper White is 5-1/4 x 3"

Stamp Colors... there is a stamp to add detail to the Peacock's feathers and here is what I used:

  • Blueberry Bushel with tail feather accent color in Old Olive
  • Old Olive with tail feather accent color in Bermuda Bay
  • Bermuda Bay with tail feather accent color in Pretty Peacock
  • The Stamparatus helps align the details feather stamp

Try mixing and matching different color combinations and see how it turns out!
