HSN Sneak Peeks Day 4!


Are you ready for more sneak peeks at what I'm bringing to HSN next Tuesday, January 26th? If you missed the previous tutorials and giveaways, be sure to pop back over here for a chance to win!


I made a video tutorial to show you how this vintage-inspired card was created. Watch it below:



And here's step-by-step instructions, too:

Step 1: Trim cardstock to 6" square, score and fold in half to create your card base.

Step 2: Trim another piece to 5 6/8" square, adhere to your card front.

Step 3: Emboss the white cardstock using the Bijou Butterflies folder, sponge around edges using Distress ink (Gathered Twigs), then adhere to your card front.

Step 4: Die-cut Happy Birthday, affix to the card front on top of a die-cut kraft circle.

Step 5: Die-cut Flit & Flutter butterflies, lightly apply a bit of  gilding wax (I've used Pebeo Renaissance Gold), and add to the card front to finish.

I think this one is so warm and elegant! Tell me - do you like having a video to go along with the written instructions?



Today I'm giving you the chance to WIN* this 'Filigree Frame' 5" x 7" embossing folder. It coordinates perfectly with the products you'll see on HSN with me next week! This folder will not be on the show, and you can't get it anywhere in the US yet.... this is your chance to win it before you can buy it! All you have to do is comment on this blog post by next Tuesday!

I’ll be back tomorrow with another tutorial and giveaway! I’d love to hear from you… please leave me a comment and tell me what you think of my new collection!
