Terrific Tuesday Blog Post and Video for June 19

Hi everyone and welcome to another Terrific Tuesday!

Today's project features another great technique using the masking and sponging technique.  This stampset is the perfect one for this technique and you can make so many AWESOME cards with it.  

The stampset that I am using today is called Enjoy Life.  Here is a picture of today's card:







Having new stampsets to use is like a little kid in a candy store.  The struggle is real as to what I want to use and play with first! 

Here are the measurements for making this card:

Grapefruit Grove:  5.5 x 8.5 (card base) 
Basic Black:  5.25 x 4
Grapefruit Grove: 5 x 3.75
Whisper White: 4.74 x 3.5

Here is a picture of the Enjoy Life stampset.  This stampset was designed by a Million Dollar Stampin' Up! sales achiever, Connie Fitzgerald.  This stampset is great for inspirational cards, graduation cards and birthday cards to name a few. 



Before I share my video with you I would like to share some pictures from this past weekend.  It sure was hot in Michigan.  We officially have the pool open and all of the kids enjoyed cooling off!  It's so nice to have some down time and just relax.

Terrific Tuesday Video for June 12th

Hi everyone and welcome to another Terrific Tuesday!

Today's project features another technique that I haven't done in a very long time!.  This one is called the dryer sheet technique.

Having a NEW tree stamp has brought back so many different techniques when I first started stamping and using the Lovely as a Tree stampset.   All you need for this technique is a used dryer sheet, glitter and a glue stick and just like that you can have a BEAUTIFUL card! 

Here is a picture of the card that I will be showcasing today:





As promised, here are the measurements for the card pieces:

Call Me Clover:  5.5 x 8.5 (card base) 
Lemon Lime Twist:  5.25 x 4
Mossy Meadow: 5 x 3.75
Very Vanilla: 4.74 x 3.5

This card once again features the Rooted in Nature. This stampset is a new stampset from the NEW annual catalog.  There are also framelits that coordinate the stamped images. 



Before I share my video with you, however, I have to talk about my girls for just a little while.  Last Friday was the last day of school.  I could not be more proud of both of them!  They both received awards for their academic performance.  

Claire received awards in reading, math, science and language usage.  Natalie received awards for her outstanding academic performance and excellence in Art and Life Skills. 

School is out for the summer and we are all so ready for some down time to relax and enjoy it!

Today's project features a technique that I LOVE doing and is so easy to do!  It's one of those techniques where when you see cards created using it, you ask yourself "How did they do that?"  Today's technique is called Triple Time Stamping and I just LOVE the end result.  

Here is a picture of the card that I will be showcasing today:






As promised, here are the measurements for the card pieces:

Before I share my video with you, however, I thought I would share some pictures from this past week. My oldest daughter Natalie had her 8th grade celebration.  It is so hard to believe that she is off to high school next year.  She looked amazing and absolutely breathtaking!  

I realized in the picture with her and I, just how much we really do look alike!
