Tips & Techniques Tuesday - June 27, 2017 - Hexagon Dynamic Folder

Today I would like to show you the Hexagon Dynamic Folder.  In the 17 - 18 Catalog we have 5 3D Dynamic Textured Impressions Embossing Folders.


 Cable Knit 143537 $10.00
 Ruffled 143699 $10.00
 Layered Leaves 143704 $9.00
Pinewood Planks 143708 $10.00


Dynamic Folders create deep, dimensional embossed impressions.  They look 3D and I love the look but they are a little different to use.
1. You do not use a bottom plate on the Big Shot when you use them
2.  To make the them look 3D you should spritz the card stock with water before you run it through the Big Shot.

So let's take a look.



I think these folders are really assume.  If you would like to purchase one of them head over to my store at just by clicking here.

Tips & Techniques Tuesday - June 20, 2017 - Gluing Intricate Die Cuts

Have you ever just wanted to through your intricate die cuts out the window?  Does it frustrate you to have to use the fine tip glue pen and then it is dry before you put the cut on the Card and you have to start over? At time do you just avoid using that beautiful rose in the Rose Garden Thinlits  because it is to much work?  Today's Tip is for you then.

Here is a new one I just hate to work with and this technique so helps me want to work with word cut outs again.

So let's take a look at how to do this.



Still a little messy but a great way to do it.

Grandma's Rocking Chair - June 18, 2017 - Happy Father's Day

Today is Father's Day.  My Dad died over 40 years ago and I still miss him every day.  So today i just want to celebrate him a little.

My Dad was a Police Officer in our small town and everyone knew him.  Some times I really didn't like that.  My girl friends and I would be out after the movie would get over and we would be walking around and a police car would pull up beside us and they would say get in Cap wouldn't like it if he knew you were walking.  So we would get a ride home in the squad car.  My friends would like it I would be horrified.

He would always do something nice and so unexpected.  One day as he was hauling us cheer leaders to a game we stopped for lunch and he sat a a different table from us and then paid for our lunch.  Everyone thought that was cool.  All my friends loved him also.

I do Miss You Dad.






Happy Stamping
Mary
