Foiling Without Fuss Featuring Gina K Designs and MFT Stamps and Dies

I love Shiny, Bling-y cards, how about you? :)

I needed to create a quick card that would be sent to a child in Virgin Gorda.  Their community was destroyed by Hurricane Irma and one of the way we card makers can help is just to send a card to put a smile on someones face.  All I could think of is the videos I have seen that show how these amazing kids, who are faced with such a difficult situation, are still smiling. I wanted this card to help them smile when they maybe are feeling down and I wanted it to shine just like their beautiful smiles.

The quick part was accomplished by using scor-tape and foil to create an easy wow card.  Check out the short and sweet video I created for it below.  With the right colors and sentiment I think this would make a fantastic holiday card too.



YouTube Tutorial

Check out this quick little video to help you recreate it :)  I would love to see what this card inspires you to make.  If you happen to post them on Instagram tag #perkypennypapers so I will have a heads up to check it out :)  Bare with me in the video it was a little difficult to describe :/







I am attempting to create videos that are short and sweet and to the point.  We are all busy and my intention is for you to get as much information and ideas for a project in as short a period of time as possible.  This weeks video is a double feature:)  Let me know what you think in the comments below and be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel.  It is much appreciated :)

If you make a project inspired by this post please tag it with #perkypennypapers on Instagram and I will be able to see it :)  Thanks again.

My Monthly Hero April 2018 featuring One Die 9 Ways

As of this writing this kit is still available at www.heroarts.com while supplies last so if you would like the set hurry on over to purchase.
Have you ever needed a bunch of cards quickly?  I find in those situations a good cover die can go a long way.  There was a wonderful bonus in the April 2018 My Monthly Hero Kit, a full size cover die!  And this one is really special.  I created several sets of cards and a few singles--31 in total--in one day thanks to this timesaver, and I thought I would share them with you just in case you are ever in need of some quick cards for a gift or charity, to sell or just send out individually.  There are 9 different ways I used the die in total.  Most of these cards won't be decorated or have a sentiment yet.  That way I can customize them later, when I need them.

The products used in today's cards were minimal.  I used the kit, which included a huge, adorable stamp set; coordinating dies for many of the images; the aforementioned cover die…

Easy Ink Blending featuring Leaf Burst Stencil - AECP Level 1

Had some fun ink blending with a stencil today and such a pretty one at that.  This card was inspired by the Easy Ink Blending Techniques class at Altenew Academy.  It was a great class, check it out if you want to learn some new tips and tricks :)  Several techniques are discussed, from creating your own matching card stock to faux watercoloring. Here is a quick video of the process I describe below.  I was able to create this card using the Leaf Burst Stencil from Altenew.  I blended Wild Honey Distress Ink in the center and Picked Raspberry Distress Ink on the outer leaves.  To take it up a notch, I turned the stencil (so that the tall leaves overlapped the short leaves) and blended the Spiced Marmalade Distress Ink onto the page.  I was careful to use sticky notes on the open areas around the square so I had this pretty pattern only on the page.
I created a matching pink border by inking the edge of a 6" square piece of white card stock with the Picked Raspberry Distress Ink.…
