You Are Too Kind – Bold Butterfly

You Are Too Kind – Bold Butterfly I’m loving the “One Big Meaning” stamp set from Stampin’ Up! It has so many great ways to say Thank You.  It might be the reason why I seem to be making a lot of Thank You Cards lately.  Today’s project is relatively simple I’ve allowed my Greeting […]

Masculine Thank You Card

Masculine Thank You Card In today’s project we’re creating Masculine Thank You Card.  I always have to stop and think when I need to create a card for a guy as the usual flowers and pretty ribbons are not going to work when creating masculine cards. I wanted to use the Hardwood Stamp for my […]

You Are Too Kind

You Are Too Kind You don’t need to have all the embellishments in the world for your card to pack a punch.  As the saying goes “Less is More” For today’s project, I’ve masked off a section (approx 4 cm) in the center of my Whisper White Card-stock. Then lightly sponged my background in Pumpkin Pie, […]

Watercolour Smooching

Watercolour Smooching I thought it would be fun to play with a few of the classic ink pads on some cards, creating a watercolour smooching technique Tricks & Tips If you don’t have acetate or a plastic sheet on hand, use an acrylic block. The benefit of the acetate is that you can bend it, […]

Heat Embossing on Vellum

Patterned paper is just one of the little joys of being a card maker. (The colours! The designs!) In fact, many of us collect patterned paper! However, sometimes it isn’t easy incorporating busy patterns onto small cards. That’s where vellum works wonders in creating perfectly patterned cards. I’ve heat embossed my greeting from Thankful Thoughts Stamp […]

Vibrant Watercolour Wash Background

The colours […]

Thanks Very Much

Since moving to the Outback Australia the view of lush green grass and colourful flowers growing in the neighborhood gardens are non-existent. Instead, we can view the dusty dessert like country side and with temperatures reaching above 40°C, and I was desperately in need of some colourful spring inspired paper craft.  My inspiration for this […]

Thank You – Graduation Stamping

I wanted to try using different ink pads to create a ombre look or a gradation look on today’s card.  I used three different ink pads  to stamp out the focal point of the card and it took just 5 minutes to do so!  You can watch the video below on how this card was […]
