I know we don’t have snowflakes at Christmas time here in Australia, but don’t you think this card is delicate and you can imagine Christmas? So, this is the silver version and I used Silver Foil Sheet. This is the gold version and I used the Gold Glimmer Paper here. This Winter Wonderland Vellum 6″ x 6″ stack is just gorgeous to use as you can really use both sides. That’s what I did here to get the gold and… Read more »

This month’s Card Class focused on a new technique called Double Matted Frame. I decided to add the embossing on the top layer as well. We used the Sprinkles of Life Photopolymer Stamp Set and the co-ordinating Tree Builder Punch. The ground at the base of the Oval Frame is just the candle stamp turned sideways and inked up. Then we added the garden of flowers around the tree, on the inside of the card and on the envelope as… Read more »

This is a stamp set I featured a short while ago and is in the Annual Catalogue. It’s quite a versatile set and you can use it with many different colour combinations. There’s also a lot of texture in this card with the Brick Wall Textured Impressions Embossing Folder. The stamp set is great as it has a few sentiments and image stamps. I have used one of the image stamps to embellish inside the card and the outside of… Read more »

Most of you who know me, know I love owls so thought I’d have a go at making one of the new Square Pillow Box Framelits into an owl. What do you think? I did ink around the Rose Red Ovals which form the outer wings, however it hasn’t shown up in the photograph. It does also have a nose made from the heart from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack and Cajun Craze card. The eyes are punched with… Read more »

I shared a Minions Square Pillow Box the other day, so decided today to share a Festive one. To build the Poinsettia I used the new Festive Flower Punch from the Holiday Catalogue due out on 1st September. The punch co-ordinates with the Reason for the Season Stamp Set and I worked out a great way to stamp the images and then punch them out without too much trouble. I’ll share the tip in a video late this month. You… Read more »

You could make these for any round ball games really – baseball, basketball; dodgeball; football; teeball etc. To make this football (soccer) all you need to do is use your Big Shot and the Honeycomb Textured Impressions Folder and run your card stock… Read more »
