Video Friday – Andrea Walford, Butterfly Thanks

Welcome to Video Friday!

This week I’m sharing with you a video by Andrea Walford – Butterfly Thanks

So who is Andrea Walford?

Andrea is a mixed media artist, writer, online educator, and Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator. She is Christian, married to Todd and has 5 children.

Andrea for a number of years ran the Website “Paper Crafter’s Library” and I used to drool over her beautiful creations when I first started Card-making.

Andrea is a Independent Demonstrator with Stampin’ Up! and shares her creations on her Website and Blog….

As well as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Pinterest.

I find Andrea’s cards fresh, bold and exciting.

What does she offer-

Great Tutorials Videos and PDF

On-line classes


and great expertise!

The Video I have for you today is…. Butterfly Thanks

I love the way Andrea does her videos, all the instructions are very clear and concise.

This card involved the technique of sponging and blending of the colours, using both Sponge Daubers and Stamping Sponges.

I like seeing the Stamp-a-ma-jig being used even when using the Photopolymer Stamps, as I find this tool still the best way to line everything up. Rather than leaving it to seeing through the stamp, because knowing me I would have problems lining up the stamp with the image causing a double image.

On the Blog not only is there the video but down loadable instructions.

Now, I just had to CASE this beautiful card myself….I love Butterflies and these colours are stunning.

I found this card a fun and easy card to do.

I didn’t have the Sentiment Stamp used on this card so I used one of the Sentiments from “Mixed Boarders”


 I hope you have enjoyed today’s video and please go and have a look at Andrea’s Page….

I know you will enjoy her beautiful cards just as much as I do.

Marbling Technique – Video Friday

Welcome to Video Friday!

Having a look through some videos by Stampin’ Up! and I have come across this one on “Marbling”

Have you ever tried this?

I haven’t … I thought why not have a go.

Now for this you need Shaving Foam NOT Shaving Gel….Thank you boys!

One of my sons had left a can so I didn’t have to wait until tomorrow and a visit to the shops.

So I chose 3 colour in the Re-Inkers..

Wild Wasabi

So Saffron

Wisteria Wonder

Sprayed some foam on to a container lid I had lying around dropped a few drops of each colour into the foam. I then ran a stick I had up, down and across ways per the video and laid the Thick Whisper White card stock on top. Press down lightly, then lift off. Scrape off excess foam and leave to dry.

I suggest letting it dry before rubbing off any left over foam as it may smudge when wiping.


Later I will make a card from one of these and post it here….why don’t you give it ago I would love to see what you come up with..

Here’s the Video..
