The first card we will do is a Spiral Pop Up card. Here is the link to the Resource page on Splitcoaststampers. The front and inside of card will be different than what you see here.
Click on Resources, then on Projects, then scroll down to Spiral Pop Up Card
The we will do a simpler card - you'll see there.
The third card will involve woodgraining technique, which I will show you there and we will make two -- one to be used as a card front, and one to be used as part of the card and the other half of that one will go on your Technique card for Woodgraining Technique.
I am using the first one by Gina K in our workshop on Saturday - I think hers was the first video I found. And Creamy Caramel card stock seemed to work better for me than More Mustard. I think this is one of those techniques that you might have to play with to decide what you like. Gina K shows making the board lines with the Scor-Pal. Some of the other videos or card pictures I saw drew the lines and nails in with a marker, which is what I did. I'll upload pictures probably after Saturday. I also saw a card or instructions that used Sahara Sand cardstock, white or vanilla craft ink, and Gray ink pad (I used Going Gray) and it gives you weathered wood.
Gina K indicates that you might want to have a brown stamp pad designated just for this because the white craft ink will get on the brown pad (and it did on mine). I read in another place though about just cleaning the brown pad off on a piece of copy paper - so next time I try this I'll have some of that handy. ... I've already got a designated brown ink pad though cause I didn't know to try to clean it off until it had sat several days.
Maybe if I ... aha - it changed colors! I know not what I did! But hopefully now you can just click on all of them, look at them, and then come back to the blog and look at the next one!
Either in another post today or tomorrow or after Saturday, come back and see more links. I had Father's Day/masculine birthday on my mind for this coming workshop. I made a number of display cards and still want to make some more if I have time. A couple years ago I saw a card and the instructions for an origami shirt and it is SOOOO cute. When I was looking last night to find the videos for it so I could put it in my notes -- I also found one that has shirt and pants made from a dollar bill -- too, too cute. There is also one that has the tie and the shirt made from the dollar bill, but making the tie looks waaayyyy too complicated. I think I'll stick with just the shirt or the shirt and pants. Once you make the shirt one time and have the directions in front of you it's not that hard. And the pants are really easy.
Whew -- I clicked on something (encoding - won't try that again) and thought I had lost all of the above. Managed to find it in draft file, thank goodness. I have all the links in a Word file, but not my "talkin' ". I was trying to get the woodgrain link by Wanda Pettijohn to change colors but no luck - I don't know what makes them change colors - it just does it ... on most of them, but it takes a little while for it to happen ...
Well -- it's been quite a productive blogging day today. I was taking my daily (one of my daily) treks through splitcoaststampers this morning and got sidetracked on someone's blog and their playlist on the side of their blog. I'd seen that before ... so anyway, clicked on part of her playlist -- and set one up on mine and put a lot of songs on it. Still gotta make me a list of other songs I like and try to find them. Anyway - we now have music on this blog! And I accomplished getting it on the blog -- all by myself! It really wasn't that difficult! And to find the songs you want on there you can do a search by artist or song name and what you do is go through other people's playlists and when you find something you like, you just click add and it adds it to your playlist. Neat, huh?
Well, I think I'll close this one out and work on Saturday stuff some more.
And I just learned how to come back in and edit this post to add a few more sentences... let's hope I can remember next time how to edit as it took me a little while to figure it out... but I KNEW I had seen something indicating I could edit!
