Need a gift for a neighbor?  Sit back, relax, and watch this video to see the easy process. 

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Study your glass to determine what width you would like your strips to be.
  • For this one, the strips measure 2 1/2 x 12 and 1 1/2 x 12.
  • The excess was trimmed after wrapping the paper around the glass.
  • Here, die cuts and ribbon were used for embellishing, but you can easily use a stamped image or punched pieces.

Tuesday Tip - Coloring with Blender Pens

Happy Tuesday and welcome to this week's tip on coloring with Blender Pens.

This video is in response to a question that I received from a customer regarding using the ink from our Stampin' Up! Classic Ink Pads to color an image. 

Watch the video below to see the method that's given me the best results. 

Coloring with blender pens on watercolor paper is easy and fun! The Basket of Wishes set has several images for appropriate for different occasions along with coordinating sentiments.

Tuesday Tip- To Stitch or Not To Stitch?

Stitched-shapes-framelits-tip-aThe new Stitched Shaped Framelits are beautiful and I had a question the other day about what to use for the stitching.

The answer: None!

That is what is so awesome about these much used shapes!  No stitching needed but you get the look with the beautiful faux stitching created by these framelits!  Take a look...

 Here are some samples as seen in the video.

Tuesday Tip- Glitter or Embossing Powder?

Tip-11-1Today's tip is a continuation of sorts of yesterday's Makeover Monday project on the top of glitter and embossing powder.

The Emerald Envy Embossing Powder is so very pretty and sparkly than it begged to be used as glitter.  Watch the video below to see the comparison of using it as glitter vs. embossing powder.

 

Product List for this glittery or embossed look:

Hope today's tip will help you decide whether how to use the Emerald Envy embossing powder. Which do you prefer...the glitter or the embossing powder look? 

 


Tuesday Tip- How to Use the Cable Knit Embossing Folder

Tip10-25Today's tip is helpful and necessary when using the new Cable Knit Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.

The folder is super thick so the "sandwich" you use with the Big Shot is different than with other folders.

Watch the video below to see it in action.

Spritzing water on your card stock before embossing may help your piece to not tear from the deep impressions.  You may or may not need to do this. Pressure on Big Shots vary depending on "age" and I found that my card stock did fine without spritzing.  Test it with your machine.

Tuesday Tip- Card Making 101: Where to Start?

Tip-10-18Today's post is dedicated to those of you who are wondering about, thinking about, and wanting to start the wonderful hobby of card making/rubber stamping but are not sure where to start.

From experience, this paper crafter knows how intimidating it can be to look through all of the hundreds (if not kajillons) of websites, online stores, and catalogs and not have a clue about where to begin or what to purchase.

With that memory in mind, today's tip and video tutorial will hopefully give you a smidgen (is that a word?) of an idea of how to begin and where to invest your hard earned dollars.

Before you watch the video, my apologies for mistake I made during recording.  You'll see it/hear it and if you have questions after you watch the video, please let me know. 

So now... on with the show!

Here are the supplies mentioned in the video...
