I absolutely adore this time of year for buying papercraft magazines. Why? Because the free gifts are extra amazing in the Christmas issues and the ones in issue 47 Creative Stamping magazine will not disappoint! And the fact they are by Altenew made me happy dance when it landed on my doorstep.
September is upon us and if you like to get a head start with your Christmas cards, then today’s project is a great way of starting. This card is featured in the current issue of Die-Cutting Essentials 28 and here is the tutorial on how to make it.
Moving on from Saturday’s blog hop, here is the tutorial on how to smoosh with the brand new Floral Statements from Stampin’Up!
This technique is very simple, but also very effective – especially when you don’t stick to one colour. Here’s how to make the most out of your circle blending tool or sponge dauber.
If you go on a hop today, you’re sure of a lovely surprise! Please join us for this month’s blog hop and instead of working from a sketch, we were challenged with a colour scheme.
There were two things that drew me to buy this stamp set – first, it had a large ‘Hello’. I love any sort of ‘Hello’ stamp and secondly, I adore sunflowers. Then I noticed the stamp set was called Dainty Daisies!
Last week, I celebrated my 6th wedding anniversary….why the card said ‘again’ inside? It’s actually our 17th year together and we celebrated our ‘6th’ a very long time ago!
I had so much fun playing with this collection from BoBunny for this month’s Die-Cutting Essentials Magazine (issue 25), especially the bicycle die! I just love how they have mixed pink & yellow pastels with black. And I do love to add black into most of my projects, so these papers were perfect.
I have a card that is very simple and quick to make today. Simple, but beautiful.
Is there a stamp set that you tell yourself that you should play with more often? For me, it’s the woodgrain background stamp called Hardwood. After all, this woodgrain thingie is all the rage at the moment!
Sometimes, I need to remind myself to use my lovely patterned papers on my cards. I tend to get carried away with getting creative with inks and making backgrounds that I forget all about my lovely papers.
This card is very easy to make with just a few score lines and coordinates perfectly with last weeks satchel – the perfect pair to give away.
Do we really have to say goodbye to Cupcakes and Carousels? I have had so much fun with this Suite, from cards to mini albums. Here is Monday’s card and it highlights the lovely colours in this collection.
I’m really enjoying the pink, gold and black look at the moment and today we get creative with ink and water too. Get your aprons on! This is going to be fun!
Regardless of the term ‘clean & simple’, some of us really do have trouble keeping things simple and understated. Here is how to not keep adding and keeping it clean.
Ooo, I just love it when a beautiful card comes together! I’m going to save this one for my favouritest person to give to….I’m sure I’m not the only person that does that?! Anyone else?
I wanted to make a quick and simple card that uses patterned paper – sometimes we all need ideas on how to add paper to our cards, so here is my first offering.
I found something fantastic and I can’t wait to share it with you all. On my travels to craft shows, I came across self adhesive glitter sheets and they are the BOMB! Without the actual glitter bomb mess.
I have a pretty card to share with you today! This one is featured in Die-Cutting Essentials Magazine 23 alongside Kaisercraft’s Wildflower Collection and new dies and you can find the video tutorial below.
In today’s tutorial, we will be making a matching card for the Ferrero Rocher tray that we made on Sunday. This set goes together really well and will make the perfect gift – if you can manage to part ways with them!
