There's A Card Thursday - April 17, 2014 - Alcohol Re-inker Card

There's A Card Thursday is using the Technique Alcohol Re-inker that I showed on Tips & Techniques Tuesday to make a great fun card.  I just love this technique it is so fun to do and you never get the same look twice no matter how hard you try, but that is what I like about it.


Hope you enjoy the video.  I love the card.



Just want to thank everyone who participated in my 1000 You Tube Subscriber Contest.  The winner was Jenny Barnett Rohrs.  Congratulations Jenny.

Don't forget you can still win in the Retirement List Contest but you have to get your guess in soon.

New Stampin' Up! Catalog for Free

I have been ordering catalogs for my customers to be delivered to their homes all evening today, free from me to you - only catch is you have had to order at least $50 worth of merchandise with me in the past year (You still have time to do that until April 26 this year).  Stampin' Up! will start mailing them out May 1, that does not mean you will get them the next day but you should have them well in advance of when you can order from them on June 2.  You may place an on-line order with me at http://marytrautner.stampinup.net or click here. All orders must be placed by Noon April 26 so that I can get the orders for the catalogs in.  If you do not want to order but would still like a catalog delivered to your home until April 26 it will be $5.50, let me know your e-mail and mailing address and I will send you a Pay Pal Invoice for the amount.  After April 26 it will be $5.50 plus $5.80 for mailing, as I will be mailing from my house after that time.  So hurry and be the first on your block with the new Stampin' Up! Catalog.

Tips & Techniques Tuesday - April 15, 2014 - Alcohol Reinker Technique

Today I will show you another technique using glossy card stock, rubbing alcohol and re-inkers.  I just love this technique as it turns out different every time. You can use the same colors of re-inkers, make circle each time but the outcome is different every time.

I also used this technique when I was a Girl Scout Leader, the girls just loved this technique.  It really is fun and the girls can make so many different patterns.

You can use this technique with Glossy Card Stock, Photo Paper or even Whisper White Card Stock.

You really should try this technique as I think you will have a great time.

I hope you really enjoy this video.



Don't forget that today is the last day to enter my 1000 You Tube Subscriber Contest.
I have 1000 Subscribers to my YouTube Channel.  I am having a free give away.  All you have to do is watch the video and then write a comment on the video over at my YouTube Channel http://youtu.be/7R-hGExAHkY

Have a great week.

Grandma's Rocking Chair - April 13, 2014 - Paper Piercing Packs

Grandma's Rocking Chair - Reviewing Paper Piercing Packs.
I will have to admit I have not used these very much.  I think I have done maybe 3-4 cards using these.  Though I have all the sets and really think I would like them. I store them in my embossing and tool draw, with my mats, my heat gun, my paper piercer and they get down to the bottom and I really don't see them.

Today I was cleaning my stamp room, well I really was moving everything out of it so we could have the carpet cleaned.  While I was hauling everything out I went through a lot of my stuff to see if I could lighten the load for our upcoming move.  I found all of my Paper Piercing templates again and I fell in love all over.  I can see how to use them to make great cards, highlighting stamps and punches and also framelits now.  I have so many ideas.  I think the heart one would be great to use to highlight a Shape card.  I really want to get out and try them again.  I have to wait until the carpets are cleaned and I have time to play.  I have to make a few more videos so you may see one or two using the Paper Piercing Packs.

Here is a card I made using the Butterfly from the Occasions Paper Piercing Pack.

There are three Packs

Essentials Paper Piercing Pack.


Festive Paper Piercing Pack


Occasion Paper Piercing Pack

If I was just starting out I think the first one I would get would be the Essentials Pack.I think for starting out that one has the most useful designs.

Have you used any of the Paper Piercing Packs?  Let's see your cards using them.  Just post a comment with the link to your Pinterest card.

Thanks for visiting today.  I can't wait to create again.

Don't forget the Retirement List contest.

There's A Card Thursday - April 10, 2014 - Crayon Resistance Technique Card


Today on There's A Card Thursday I will be using the image I made on Tips & Techniques Tuesday with the Crayon Resistance Technique to make a card.  Since we have already done the technique this will be a fast and easy put together card.

I really like this technique.  You see how the crayon makes it pop and it is a fun one to do with kids.
