Hey there! Glad you have made it back to the blog today. I have a couple of great little Christmas cards and they are more on the modern side. I know a lot of people like quite traditional Christmas cards with the stamps they use […]
Hello there! I am hope your week has been great so far. Today I am showcasing another Brutus Monroe project – You Are Amazing! I can often struggle coming up with card designs incorporating embossing folders. However, I had no problem today using the exquisite […]
Hey there, welcome to today’s post focusing on an ombre embossing technique. The ombre effect is quite popular, often seen with stamping, distress inks/oxides and watercolouring. I was inspired to try out ombre embossing as a result of WOW! Embossing Powders July Challenge: Multicolour embossing. […]
Hello and welcome to today’s post! Today I am highlighting this ‘all embossed’ card I created with a monochromatic colour scheme. Initially I was inspired to try and make an Art Deco style card, hence why I choose the black and gold colour scheme. However, […]
Can you believe it is April already! Where is the time going? However, with April comes a new magazine of Docrafts Creativity and this issue featured the new Project Design Team 2017 annoucement, so that was great to see a little picture of me in a magazine. It will be a fun crafty year designing for them! Today I am showing you a really easy and quick card which you can change up and personalise to any occasion and is easy to reproduce. Stamping tone on tone can highlight a background pattern without it overbearing on the main feature of the card.
I recently got a few items through the post that I had order from Amazon ages ago, but took a while to arrive as they were coming from overseas. For the cheaper prices I was willing to wait! The main item I used for this card was a background 6″ x 6″ cling stamp, my first background stamp. It was really easy to use, and gave a really interesting background when I combined it with distress inks. Using embossing powder and heat setting this before distress inks are applied, allows the embossing to resist the inks and keep the look of the background stamp.
Shaker cards have been around for quite some time but I have never done a tutorial on them. It is such a great way to add interest to the card and you can personalise each card by changing the embellishments you use inside the window.
They are quite easy to make if you have the supplies, and the main thing you need is either double sided foam tape or some fun foam and double sided adhesive tape, and some acetate! What you put inside the shaker window is up to you!
I have recently been experimenting with creating my own sentiment stencils as you will have seen previously. However, I decided to branch out (no pun intended) and try creating other stencils to ink with. Again, this was to try and come up with a solution […]
