Still in quarantine

Until I can offer in person contact, know I care for you all, and I’m sending virtual hugs! 🤗

It’s been over 100 days of stay at home or safer at home. I do see people out there who need to be but I’m not one of those critical individuals. This will continue for me through July then perhaps I can open my doors? Remember you can always shop online with me www.VanessaAntonsen.stampinup.net

Multiple craft levels one design plan.

Beginner and Casual Crafter Card
Stamp a leaf in Cajun Craze ink on the front of a Very Vanilla card base and use the dies to add details. Adhere a piece of striped Gilded Autumn Designer Series Paper to the left edge of the card. Stamp a sentiment in Early Espresso ink on Mint Macaron Cardstock, and punch it out using the Label Me Fancy Punch. Adhere the label, wrap ribbon around the card, and tie a bow!
Avid Crafter Card
Cut stitched lines into the Very Vanilla Cardstock. Stamp leaves in Cajun Craze, Crumb Cake, and Mint Macaron ink on a separate piece of Very Vanilla Cardstock and die cut them using the Stitched Leaves Dies. Use VersaMark ink to stamp the label, sprinkle with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder, and arrange the pieces onto the card. Finish with Wonderful Gems!
Stepped Up Avid Crafter Card
Emboss the Very Vanilla Cardstock with the Tin Tile 3D Embossing Folder before adding gold foil accents and other layers. Before tying ribbon around the card, add an Acorn Trinket. Replace Crumb Cake ink with Early Espresso ink when stamping leaves, and punch a label from a Gold Foil Sheet embossed with the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. Split up the sentiment, then arrange and adhere the pieces!

Thank You & masking

Each and every month I make thank you cards for the customers who place an order with me or with my online store. This month I was in the mountains making those cards. Here is a view of it. I used masking by this I mean I stamped the flower image on a post it note cut the image then placed it on the spot I already stamped to protect the petals and leaves from getting yellow ink when the I sponged the circle of yellow around it.

Books using designer series paper

These are a few photos of the books I’ve made during the last 3 months with some of the extra time I’ve had. I searched on Pinterest to find the book directions. One is called waterfall and the other is called accordion.

These are the covers –

This is inside the waterfall book. and……. this is inside the accordion book.
