Glittery Kaleidoscope Card

Hello, I used some of the beautiful Kaisercraft Kaleidoscope paper for this lovely card. I just love the colors. 

It went to someone who loves glitz so I made it sparkle by adding lots of Stickles Diamonds on the roses and little dots around the flowers.

The smaller flowers were washed with Perfect Pearls.

along with the die cut embellishments that I used on the inside.

If you would like to take a quick peek at these wonderful papers, check out this video where I show them off. (You might want to subscribe to the Scrapadabadoo YouTube channel too so you can keep up with all the crafty goodness that they offer.)

Here are the measurements for the paper layers on the front of the card.

The Ups and Downs of Flowers (tutorial)

My 2nd flower tutorial is on the Scrapadabadoo blog today.
It features these flowers.

You can pop over there to download the instructions, cut files, and patterns.

I have the video tutorials here.

First, we should review from last week.
I show how to curl the flower petals down.

That was easy!
Now let's turn the petals up!
This is an older video but the rules still apply.

Now you should be all set to combine the 2 and curl petals up and down.

Easy peasy! Right?

Here are a few more short videos on papers and decorating the chalkboard flowers.

I hope you will try making the lovely flowers and show them in the Scrapadabadoo Crafts FaceBook page.

Here are some handy links for supplies:


Have fun crafting!
