A Tutorial in Papers and Pixels....AND a giveaway!

Happy Friday to you! I have so much to share with you today! I hope you can stick around for a few minutes! ; ) First off, I have had the honor of contributing to a fabulous on-line magazine called Papers and Pixels. I have a tutorial over there on how I created this card with step by step instructions. If you haven't been there yet, I would recommend checking it out and becoming a member. It costs nothing and it is a fabulous place to make friends and be inspired!


I have a fun giveway that will end on July 29th, 10 P.M. EST. The winner will be announced on August 1st. I have a Gypsy and 2 cartridges, Tinkerbell and Friends and Fabulous Finds, to offer to all of you Cricut lovers! All 3 items retails for about $170.00.


So what do you have to do? Take a peek at my tutorial over at Papers and Pixels, come back here and tell me what specific tutorials you would like to see from me. I would love to create more, but I need a bit of direction! ; ) And last but not least, you don't have to become a follower of my blog, but I sure would love it if you did! : )
And that's it! : ) Easy right?

Have a wonderful weekend!!!!! : )

I would like to see how to make a flower. So many different options I'm not sure where to begin.

Ami said...

I love your tutorial. The card is just beautiful. I never thought of using glossy accents on the paper as a base for glitter. You learn something new every day on the blogs. TFS!

Ami said...

I forgot to write what tutorials I would like to see. I agree with Jocelyn and would love to see shading techniques. I am not very good with that and could use some help.

Gabriela said...

What a jaw dropping and stunning card! It just takes my breath away!

neddgirl said...

You are so kind and so generous and so talented. I am inspired by your sense of creativity. Your blog rocks. Thanks for sharing.

Time is always a problem for me or I should say the lack there of. A tutorial on time saving techniques would be beneficial. Maybe some techniques on preparation.

Wow this card is just beautiful. I love it.

I too must say I would love seeing "coloring" like w/ copics, and/or colored pencil.

Thanks

Michele, I loved your tutorial and the details you used for the dress. But I also loved reading more of your bio about your daughter and your stuggles and stives. Thank you for sharing. I would love to see what you can do with anything, I just love your talent. Keep finding the positives!

Michele,
I always enjoy seeing your work and this card is beautiful. I would also like to see you demo shading. I have a problem with this. Thank you for the give away and sharing your talents.

Good morning Michele~ First of all thank you for introducing me to Paper and Pixels. I had never heard of the site or the magazine. I can't wait to read the whole thing. I love digital projects as well as traditional scrapping. As for tutorials, I would love to see some on inking. I don't do much of this because I never seem to get it right. I could use your help!

Thanks for the link to the fab magazine Michelle! Love your card and the tutorial. I would love to see how you work with your favorite "glitter", it always looks so smooth and nice.

Jingle said...

Your card is absolutely stunning!!!

Nancy Hill said...

As a grandmother of 11 I would love to see children's (young and old) birthday cards. So much more fun for both me and them to make them rather than buy them. I love the card you made as a gumball machine with a shaker insert. Keep up the good work. A Cricut Gypsy would be a wonderful addition to my craft room. Thanks, Nancy Hill

Sam said...

LOVE LOVE LOVE this card tutorial !!

I have a few ideas, hope you don't mind me listing a couple :)

1) Basic shapes - choosing a shape and highlighting different ideas you could use that shape for.
2) Colour - help on choosing colours or patterns that go well together.
3) How to create your own back grounds.
4Punch Art - I love punch art so anything in that field is always fun to learn.
5) A challenge - alot of magazines will always set the tutorials for intermediate crafters, which is great because it covers all levels of ability, but what about a tutorial to really challenge the more experienced crafter, something that you can really sink your teeth into ( i hope not to offend anyone with this idea,would just be nice to see ;) )

Cheers Sam

Anita Kehn said...

Yes, this card is positively stunning. I love all tutorials. I have learned almost everything in my card making from tutorials. I especially enjoy a tutorial that a "famous" card maker does on a new technique they just discovered. Oh, and the Gypsy!!!! I am very new to the Cricut world (two weeks) and already I have a Gypsy on my wish list. Keep up the good work Michelle ~ one of my favorite blogs!

Ohhh Snap said...

That is a gorgeous card!!!! My sister doesn't have these carts or a Gypsy, so I'd love a chance to win them for her :D.

Marci said...

Hello Michele,
I am a new scrapbooker(empapelarci.wordpress.com)and I am enjoying every step while learning this fabulous art, but I have many questions still to ask and details to unveil.
I agree with Jocelyn about the tutorial, I would like to see how to shade the corners and edges on papers, and to learn different techniques on paper treatment to get different looks or textures.
I look forward to see who the winner is ;) and to learn from the most experienced.

Marci ;D

Bluefunk said...

Love this card. Great tutorial.

I would love to see a tutorial on "colouring in" stamps. I'm fairly new to stamping and have never attempted colours!

Crazy Cricut Lady said...

Love your card, have a few ideas, but would love to see some tutorials for boy cards. I am always at a loss and with 2 grandsons and a couple of nephews. I feel like I am cheating them when the nieces get really pretty cards and theirs are, well, kinda sad looking :)

Terry said...

Wow...the card is beautiful and you are certainly very talented in creating it. I'm great at copying but not usually the initial creating process.

Sam listed the one thing that I would love to see more tuturials on. Punch Art. It fascinates me and I love seeing what can be made from basic punch shapes.

Thanks so much for being so generous with your giveaway as well! Have a great day.

Sheila aka SassyLady said...

Love your card it is gorgeous! I like ALL kinds of tutorials. Let's face it we pick up something new with everything we see. Looking forward to seeing what you do in the future.

SoCalMom26 said...

Happy Friday Michele! And Wow, thank you for introducing me to Paper and Pixels. I love it! As for tutorials, I would love to see some on flowers, I can never seem to create all of those amazing layers flowers I see on projects. That would be a fantastic help to me!

Stephanie said...

There are two things that I struggle with and would love to see a tutorial for either.

Selecting different patterns that work well together (outside of a "kit") and creating blog buttons and headers.

The card is beautiful!

Thanks for the chance to win.

All I can say is wow! Your tutorial is so easy to follow that I think I could actually make this card. I would like to see a tutorial on tearing paper. I have never used any Cricut products and would love to try.

jan farnworth said...

what a great tutorial i would love to see a tutorial on making backgrounds in my cards. like a cloud one or how to do a sidewalk. thanks for the chance to win.

Mel said...

I enjoyed looking at your tutorial. I did not know you put your glitter down with glossy accents... I will have to try that AS you are my glitter idol! For suggestions, I would like to see the detail steps to any of your projects similar to this wedding card. I as sure I would learn some great tips. Keep up the good work- it is just fantastic!

Karen said...

You are one talented lady.
I would love to see any tutorials using Just Right Stamps. I love their product. Specifically items with Halloween or Christmas theme. Christmas Tree ornaments would be fun.

Mrs. Green said...

I love your glittering and I would love to see some details on how you do that, especially the bigger glitter that you use.

Michele said...

Thanks Michele. I would love to see videos on putting together mini albums made out of different materials....canvas, paper bags, chipboard, acrylic, etc. Also videos on using the Yudu,,,,this is so intimidating, layering vinyl...for walls etc & material.

Love your card!! Absolutely beautiful, as always! You have such an eye for colour and details. How do you pick your colours to be so pleasing to the eye? Do you have a specific theme? Which colour do you choose first and then how do you match patterns with light or dark? Would love to see a tutorial for colours. Thanks for all you do!
Best wishes,

Very beautiful card. I would like to have a shading tutorial with copics. Thanks for the opportunity to win this super blog fcandy.

Have a nice weekend

Debby said...

Beautiful card. I would love to see tutorials on Design Studio. There is so many tutorials out there on youtube on using the gypsy and not everyone can afford or has one, Design Studio is more of an affordable thing. I would love to see more manly cards, I struggle with them.
Have not had time to look at the Paper and Pixels yet, I get that in my email normally. But, will look when I get a chance.
Thanks for the chance at the gypsy.

Patti aka NW Lady said...

I love your card!

I'd love to see more tutorials on paper piecing, adding bits and pieces to put together cards, or multi-layering one piece to give it dimension and different color and styles.

Thanks for the fabulous chance at your giveaway, it's an amazing one. I've subscribed because I sure don't want to miss out on your next inspiring posts!

Thanks for sharing your lovely wedding card Michele! I am fairly new to Cricuts and cardmaking but would love to see more tutorials for pop up and even three dimensional cards. These just go so far beyond what you can find in the average selection at your stationery stores. Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

Karen said...

What I would love to see is a tutorial on 3d cards. There seems to be a shortage of true 3d card tutorials that I can find. Another thing I would love to see is shaped card tutorials.
I am completely new to Card Making and just trying to collect what I need to get started. This includes as many tutorials as possible. Your tutorial was great and so pretty.
I am playing around with the idea of incorporating my love of fabric manipulation into card making.

Colleen said...

First off, Beautiful card by the way. Very stunning.

Hi Michele, I took a peek and registered! Love the bride's dress!
I would love to see more of you actually applying the glossy accents and the coarse glitter..
Oh and I just love how the magazine displayed your card (my favorite of all time... the one with the chair!..I keep saying that I am going to scraplift that one!)

Linda Peterson said...

Absolutely love your tutorial! I am so open to learning anything new. I was very impressed with your statement about how you should look at what your child can do, other than what they cannot do. I will remember that for the future. You are so awesome and your blog is so uplifting.

I registered at P & P but was unable to find the tutorial. So, here is my tutorial requests: Imagine how to's and using my computer for hybrid scrapping on a budget. Thanks! cjdempsey9 at msn dot com

A Wonderful project. Well done and a great idea.
I would love to see more 3D things. Things that can add pizazz to cards.

THANKS for sharing.

You card is totally amazing! I really like the little hanger :) As for tutorials, I agree with those about coloring with markers, but anything really that shows step by step instructions of any of your projects (especially videos)! Thanks for the giveaway!

Just Don't Over Think It! said...

Love your blog and directing me to Papers and Pixels. I posted to my blog about your blog and the Paper and Pixels blog. Since I didn't know about your blog or PP, I figured others didn't either. I would love to see a tutorial on making boxes out of chipboard. I see so many of the pretty boxes at Joann's and would love to recreate them myself. Thanks for sharing!

colleen kramer said...

Oh this type of tutorial is exactly what I'm looking for...more please? I love the idea of blending stamps, ink, cricut, and all of our fun crafting tools and accessories. Maybe even "the cricut meets mixed media"? Thanks for your generosity in sharing your tutorials and this giveaway. My dear daughter (age 6) and I spend hours with our cricut and would love to be able to share the gypsy as well.

Bec said...

Loved the cards! Some vintage flower tutorials would be great. The flower on the popsicle card is great, and the gloss and the drips are so fun!

lovestowearhats said...

Love all of your work and love the pics of your kids too. My sister is a special needs kid, now aged 53! She's taught us love and understanding and not looking at the outside of people, but the inside :) A true blessing for our family.

On what to see, I like technique type learning - so any kind of iridescent techniques for textures, backgrounds, etc. would be fun to learn. I'm a glitzy type person who likes a lot of bling - glitter is my friend :)

Hi Michelle,

I found you from my Cricut Cutter Digest and I am so glad I did! Your card is PHENOMENAL!!! :)That tulle and all of your special touches take it to the next level!

Thank you so much for sharing,

LoriS said...

Oh, my gosh! Thank you so much for providing such a great resource with Papers and Pixels. Your tutorial was highlight because I just love your card. You were clear and detailed - not an easy thing to do on paper. I was looking through your blog and noticed you used Tattered Angels. I would love to find out how you use Tattered Angels products on your Cricut creations. I have the misting sprays, too, but somehow it just doesn't look as polished as your Born to Fly card.

What a beautiful card, thanks for sharing. I would like to see a tutorial on a home deco project.

Cindy said...

This wedding card is delightful! I would like to see how to create dimensional cards using techniques that make each layer "pop". I would also like to know how to attach little elements, little flowers, small rhinestones, etc. Thank you for a great tutorial.

Cindy said...

The wedding card is lovely. I would love to learn how to apply small dimensional objects, i.e. rhinestones, flowers etc. without dropping them! Also I would like to know how to make layers "pop" out from the layers beneath and the layers above for greater visual delight.

Catherine Kraft said...

I love your wedding creation and all the detail you added. I'm like a lot of the other gals needing help in shading and tips using Copics, pencils, etc....different mediums. I really enjoy making cards with lots of little touches of detail.

Gorgeous card! And thank you for the heads up about Paper and Pixels!

disneylisa said...

Came from PaP. Nice card and great blog. I read the recent post using the copic airbrush system. I just broke down last year and have started to very slowly collect the pens. Now I'm thinking I might need to branch out to airbrushing as well. Any tutorials using copics would be great as I certainly haven't used them effectively yet.

LauraB said...

thanks for the link to P-To-Pixels!
have you done a tutorial yet on photographing your art for your blog? that would be a big help!

angelicmischief said...

great idea!!! Love the way you did it and the tools you used

Stephenie said...

First, Thanks for the AWESOME giveaway!! You have such beautiful cards! I am also a scrapbooker who turned to cardmaking. Too much paper too little time. lol I love your tutorials, they have good pictures and simple directions. I love to see tutorials on new techniques or a new take on an old technique. Sometimes we forget some of the things we loved to do when we first started crafting and need a refresher on it. I also need direction when making cards, a favorite color, something a person collects or is interested in, that is why I love blog challenges, they help to focus me.

Anonymous said...

This is simply a beautiful card! Thanks for sharing your talent, too !

I would love to learn about shading, coloring, etc.

Thank you Michelle for the tutorial! Absolutely stunning dress and card overall. Even the hanger is divine. Can't wait to get started on it and I know just whom it's for.
Thank you also for the opportunity for the blog candy (cricut gypsy).
God Bless you and yours.

Mom of 2 Monsters said...

Wow, this is a very elegant card. TFS.

What I would love to see more is copic coloring. I want to get into copics but seeing that they are pricey, I want to see tutorials on it before I take the plunge.

Yes!Carly said...

P&P brought me to your website after going through the July posting. Usually I just browse and this time I seen your wedding card and decided to see how it was made. I got married this July 4th and was thinking about using the wedding dress/veil in a scrapbook page layout. Your article in P&P really made me give my husband sitting beside me a hug. So many things can get dwelled on, but they should not be, especially after being reminded of all we have.

I would love more tutorials on punch arts. They can be used on so many things! If you made one for a card it could be eaisly used as scrapbooking, decoration or a freestanding embellishment. I love punch arts because of that, however fall short in knowing how to make one without the tutorial.

Anyway thanks for the giveaway, I know there will be one very happy crafter in a few weeks!

Alanna said...

Fabulous card. One thing I certainly struggle with is mixing and matching yummy patterned papers with an image that needs copic or whatever kind of colored. I always seem to stay with mostly cardstock or just one patterned paper.

Thanks for the chance to win.

Lauren Bowser said...

Your card is beautiful, Thank you for introducing me to Paper and Pixels. I would like to see maybe cards or scrapbook pages for men.

I should never check something out when I'm in a hurry to get somewhere. I love to use inks on my projects and would love to see tutorials on using inks as well as your signature use of glitter. I'm not sure what you do different but you do glitter like no other.

Your card is absolutely gorgeous. I love seeing what you create and I hope with following your blog, one day my creations will be half as nice as yours. I would love to see a tutorial on shading or coloring with Copics. Thanks for the chance to win some very generous prizes.

Your card is beautiful. I am fairly new, so a tutorial on anything is appreciated, but I need help on coordinating colors and using embellishments.

Hi Michelle.

I loved this card, it is such an innovative idea and I also love glitter, so I am going to use this inspiration ad the basis of a card that I have to make for my friend's birthday. Thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to enter in order to have a chance to win this give away! Keep up with the tutorials, most of the times I learn much more from a tutorial than when I pay money for a class!

Cariños,

Your card is BEAUTIFUL! I would like to see tutorials on coloring and shading, using Copic markers and how to create colors that go well with each other. (I would like to be able to go outside of my comfort zone) I enjoy reading Paper and Pixels too.
