Last week when I taped my Rubber Cement Tutorial I went ahead and also did my Polished Stone video and my Faux Wood Sheets tutorial at the same time (I will show you that one next week). I figured I might as well do them all at one time since I had the phones turned off, the fans off, the a/c, and the computer off too. It is amazing what that camera mic picks up.
So today's tutorial is Polished Stone. It's a technique that has been around for a long time, but it is nice to re-visit some oldies. Especially when I am doing technique classes each month, there are lots of people that have not done some of these, and it is nice to update them a bit too.
Here is the finished card, I had posted it on my blog earlier but this way you don't have to click around to see it.
Stamp Set: Made 2 Last
Paper: Pixie Pink, Apricot Appeal, Whisper White, Glossy, Green Galore
Ink: Basic Black, Pixie Pink, Apricot Appeal
Rubber Cement, Organza ribbon, Finial press embossing folder,
Playground buttons, alcohol, leaf die, black gingham ribbon,
dimensionals, daisies 2 die
The finished card is a standard 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 sized card. Marilyn emailed me and asked if I could tell the sizes of my finished cards. That is a super idea, and I apologize for not doing that…I just have to make my old brain remember now.
If there is anything you want to see, just let me know. I have a request for a tutorial from Renee, and I am going to do it in a couple weeks.
Well that's it for me, have a super Tuesday, can you believe it is September 1 already? My oh my!
Thanks for stopping in.
Thanks so much for the great video. I love your blog, it's the one blog I check every day:).
What do you mean you don't drink that al-kee-hall!
Love the tutorial!
Another great video tutorial! Can't wait to try this one out. Thanks for all your great inspiration! 🙂
HOLY CUTE DIANA!!!! XXOO Julie
Another great tutorial. You should put them all on a DVD and sell them. Any chance you could do a tutorial on the shutter fold card? (I think that's what it's called, I'll have to go back to your blog post and see for sure.)
It's a trifold shutter card…

Thank you so much for this Tutorial. It is funny I saw a card using this techique today and wrote to the person asking her to assist me in learning the technique. She hasn't returned my cry for help BUT you did – fate!! Thanks so much once again.

Thanks for sharing this video.

I must have looked through the Idea Book & Catalog over and over and can't believe I missed that set, "Made 2 Last". The card and tutorial was absolutely fabulous. I love polished stone, glad you brought it back. So many techniques, so little time. Sigh !!!
Thanks so much for sharing your videos.

Thanks for the tutorial! 🙂 Could you do one for the flowers though? I'd love to come to your classes but…its kind of far 😉 since I live in a suburb of Chicago.
