Shimmering winter owl scene ~ card tutorial

        This is a seasonal or holiday card featuring a shimmering winter owl scene.  Today on the Unity blog, I am sharing a way to make these background techniques work together for a dimensional winter scene.


Sentiment:
Hope this season brings you plenty of what makes you happy.

Using metallic splatters, color cardstock, hand cut slopes and a big moon helps to make this shimmering winter owl scene come to life.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Vintage style pink & brown holiday wreath card tutorial

  Today, I am sharing a card featuring a pretty vintage style holiday card in pink and brown shades.  There are so many possibilities for this wreath kit in holiday card making.


Sentiment:  Season's Greetings

For this card, I chose soft shades of pink and brown for a vintage and nontraditional look.  It turned out just the way I had hoped that it would.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.

Monochromatic movie night card ~ MCT Manly Monday

 Hello.  The My Creative Time design team is sharing masculine projects on our blogs today.  This is a monochromatic card in blue with a movie night theme.


Sentiment:
Enjoy a movie night.  You deserve it.

This card can be used as a greeting card or as a gift card holder by tucking a movie card inside.  It is great for the guys or the gals.


To create this, begin by die-cutting a card panel using colored card stock.  I chose blue colors.  Next, stamp in a darker shade in the same color family.  Use a few stamped icons in the same theme over the background panel.  Also, add a bit of white color pencil accents.  Then, make a layered sentiment tab.  Finally, layer it all onto the card base, to finish.

Here is another look.


Supplies:  My Creative Time Another Date Night and Rectangle Frame Die Layers.
Also, flat and foam double-sided tape, My Favorite Things cardstock in blue beyond, lazy day and cement gray and also blue beyond premium dye ink cube; white color pencil, original Misti.

A tribute to Ginger (My Sister's Scrapper) ~ A card inspired by her!

 Hello, and welcome to my blog.  This post is dedicated to my fellow My Creative Time design team member, Ginger Ropp, in her memory.  I wanted to honor her by creating something in Ginger's style.  Here is my layered and vintage-style holiday card.

Sentiment:  Peace on earth.

One of the things Ginger enjoyed was the love for paper crafting.  I got to know her from working on the MCT design team.  During that time, I remember her upbeat spirit, friendliness and energy that shined through.  She made lovely projects from beautiful designer paper and embellishments.  Scrapbooking, mini albums, cards and interactive paper crafts are some of the things she loved to make.  She is also known as My Sister's Scrapper.

Matching watercolor card, envelope & liner + gladiolus flowers

       Here is a pretty gladiolus floral card with a matching watercolor card, envelope & liner.  Today on the Unity blog, I am sharing a way to coordinate the floral card pattern to the envelope and liner.


Sentiment:  I'm so glad you were born!

This trio of a matching card, envelope & liner combination makes for beautiful florals on the outside and inside of the envelope.

I made a quick video tutorial showing the process for this project.
