This card is made using the Blessings of Home stamp set bundled with the Flowers of Home dies.  This is my creation for the Tutorial Medley group for January.

I will share my tutorial with all of you.  The background of the card was embossed in black.  The designer paper is from the Pattern Party Host Designer Series Paper.  The Scalloped Contours dies were used to cut the panel.  The flower on front was embossed in silver.  The saying was also embossed in silver.  There are two ribbons used, the blake and white gingham ribbon and the white glittered organdy.

Reflected in Nature and the Black Ice Technique

I remember seeing the Black Ice Technique a while back at a NC Demo Quarterly.  I was was enthralled.  It was invented by a friend of mine Melissa Kerman.  Today's card using the Reflected in Nature stamp set uses that technique.  I just checked the Inventory Report and this set is still available.  I'll link it above.

This is my card for the Tutorial Medley Facebook Group.  Sorry, it's private.  A group, usually 25, of demonstrators have gotten together.  We each submit a tutorial each month.  There is a variety of stamp sets showcased.  I offer all of the tutuorials for free with a $50 order from using using my Host Code.  The current code is GTSMUXME.  I send them out sometime near the end of the month.  Today is the day they are going out to those who made a $50 purchase and to all of my Luv 2 Create team members.  These are for December.  Luckily for you, I'm sharing the tutorial with you today for free!

Here are a few more pictures for this card.  Oh, and I may have simplified the Black Ice a little for this card.

Facebook Live 11.03.2021 Blending Brushes Ideas

I hope you saw my Facebook Live on Wednesday, but if you missed it, I've got you covered.  We made cards using different ideas with Blending Brushes.  These are pretty quick to make and I think very pretty.

Facebook Live 11.3.2021 Blending Brushes  Love of Leaves  Beauty of Tomorrow  Snowflake Wishes  wonderful gems  Subtle Shimmer Sequins  Matte Decorative Dots  luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

I'm going to put the video here. 

 

Then I'll add a few details about each card.

 

Facebook Live 11.3.2021 Blending Brushes  Snowflake Wishes  Seasonal Labels dies  Soft Shimmer Sequins  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

For the first card the base is 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 and folded at 4 1/4.  The Misty Moonlight layer is 4 x 5 1/5. the Basic White layer is 3 7/8 x 5 1/8.  These measurements are the same for all three cards.

Cut a piece of copy paper into 4 parts.  Use one of them to cut the shape you see in the card.  It's from the Seasonal Labels dies.  Place the mask you've made over the Basic White piece and center just as you wish.  Adhere in a way that will not mess up the cardstock.  Since my piece of copy paper is larger than the cardstock, I taped it underneath.  Any tearing will be on the back of the layer.

Use the colors Night of Navy, Misty Moonlight, and Pool Party.  Begin at the bottom with the darkest color and build on that.  When done remove the mask.

Stamp snowflakes from the Snowflake Wishes stamp set in Night of Navy.  Add the Blue Adhesive Backed Gems in the center of each snowflake.  Add the Soft Shimmer Sequins where you wish.

Facebook Live 11.3.2021 Blending Brushes  Beauty of Tomorrow  Memento Black  2021-2023 In Color Jewels  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

For this card I used a base of Blackberry Bliss and the next layer is Rich Razzleberry.

Draw lines lightly on the white layer using grid lines to help.  Line this off with sticky pad notes.

The colors used for this card are Blackberry Bliss, Rich Razzleberry, and Positively Pink.

The stamped images are from the Beauty of Tomorrow stamp set.  Stamp in Memento Black.

Embellish with the 2021-2023 In Color Jewels.

Facebook Live 11.3.2021 Blending Brushes  Love of Leaves  Matte Decorative Dots  Layering Circles dies  Luv 2 Create  Jo Anne Hewins

The base is Mossy Meadow and the second layer is Old Olive.

Use the Layering Circles to make a mask as for the first card and attach.

Blend beginning with Evening Evergreen, then Mossy Meadow, and then Old Olive.

Stamp the leaves and saying with the Love of Leaves stamp set. 

Add some of the Matte Decorative Dots.

I think that's all the information you'll need to try these projects.
