Story Card Sunday: Brilliant

Hi everyone!

It's time for another edition of Story Card Sunday. Meet this week's Story Card.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comThis week's Story Card would look great in a pocket page or on a traditional scrapbook page. You could even use it on a greeting card.

Wondering how to make one like it? Let me show you how.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comStart by cutting a base card the Story Card steel dies. You'll also want to cut three labels with the Little Labels dies, as well as two stars with the Nested Stars dies.

Adhere the labels and large star to the Story Card.

Decorate some of the labels with enamel dots or gems. Tie a bow from twine or embroidery floss. Adhere it to the large star.

Story Card Sunday: Celebrate The Everyday (... and 100 Story Cards!)

Hi everyone! 

Welcome to Story Card Sunday! It's hard to believe this week marks our 100th Story Card Sunday tutorial.

And I think you are going to enjoy learning how to make this week's pocket page-friendly Story Card. It mimics the look of stained glass with vellum, cardstock and markers.

Stained Glass Story Card from TechniqueTuesday.comLet's get started.

The first step is do some die-cutting. You'll need two base cards cut with the Story Card steel dies. One should be cut from cardstock. The second should be cut from vellum. You'll also need to cut a leaf with the Garden Leaves by Cath Edvalson steel dies.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comYou'll need about 1 1/2" of the cardstock base card.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comAdhere the cardstock piece to the vellum base card.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comNow, it's time for the really fun stuff. Flip the Story Card over so the leaf is facing down. Use markers (or colored pencils or crayons) to add a little color to the leaves. Try to use fairly bold colors to do the coloring. The vellum will soften the colors.

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comStamp a sentiment onto the cardstock panel. The words I used are from the Favorite Things stamp set. You may want to use some other stamp set

A Story Card Sunday tutorial from TechniqueTuesday.comFinish the Story Card off by embellishing it with some sequins, gems or enamel dots.

While this Story Card is perfectly sized to fit in a pocket page, it would also work well on a traditional scrapbook page or greeting card. You could also use it as a tag. Just pop a hole in the top and add a little ribbon or twine.

Good Friends Never Go Out of Style

There's nothing quite like getting a handmade card in the mail from a favorite friend.

And this card by Jaclyn Miller will surely result in big smiles from the friend who receives it!

Good Friends card by Jaclyn MillerI love how Jaclyn arranged the paper onto her card. All those angles give it a real graphic feel.

The words she used are from Technique Tuesday's Besties clear stamp set.

Besties stamp set from TechniqueTuesday.comThis set features lot of phrases you can use on greeting cards and scrapbook pages. 

Take a look again at Jaclyn's card. The way she embellished the panel with the sentiment is just so fun. I love how she added the twine and clustering of buttons, brad and star die-cut (cut with the Magic Circle Card dies).
