Technique Tuesday: Double Slider Card

Double Slider Card




1) Punch a divot in the top of your card using the 1-1/4" Circle punch. Punch a vertical slot through the front of the card using the Word Window punch.

2) Place the back slider inside the card, aligning the top of the slider with the top of the divot.

3) Put two Stampin' Dimensionals through the slot and adhere to the back slider.

4) Next, adhere the front slider to the front of the Stampin' Dimensionals.

5) Cover the slot with your front stamped image using Stampin' Dimensionals, and finish by adhering the card edges together.

Technique Tuesday: Accordion-Folded Flower


1) Cut card stock or Designer Series paper to 12" x 3/4".

2) Score strip every 1/4" the entire length of the card stock and accordion fold the score lines. 

3) Adhere ends of card stock together (Sticky Strip works well). Let dry.

4) Holding the card stock with two hands, twist one edge of the strip into the center as shown to create a flower shape. 

5) Adhere a punched circle to the flower center on one or both sides (Pop-Up Glue Dots work well) to hold shape in place. 
Experiment with different sizes and score intervals to create the desired shape of your flower.

Technique Tuesday: Using Stampin' Pastels

Technique A: Chalking

1] Apply pastel color to your card stock or paper with a sponge-tip applicator, cotton swab, sponge dauber, or stiff paintbrush.

2] Blend the colors as desired with the applicators or blender pen. When using blender pens, just touch the pen directly to the corner of the chalk to pick up the color.

Technique B: Poppin' Pastels

1] Stamp the image with a white Craft Stampin' Pad or VersaMark® ink pad.

2] Use sponge daubers to apply the pastel color directly to the ink.

3] Blow off any excess powder. (Repeat this process if you are using this technique with a Two-Step Stampin' set.)

QUICK TIP: To avoid smearing, gently dab the chalk rather than rubbing it across the image.

Technique Tuesday: Using Heat and Stick Powder

1] Stamp image with VersaMark® or Craft Stampin' Pad.

2] Apply Heat & Stick powder to the inked image. Shake off excess powder onto the Powder Pal or a piece of scratch paper and funnel it back into its container.

4] Pour glitter onto the inked image, making sure that the image is coated completely.

5] Shake off excess glitter as described in Step 2.
