The very talented, Annette Allen,  designed this gorgeous card featuring Pink & Main!  It is so stinking cute! Here are her directions just for you!!!! Die cut the Holiday Scene on white card stock. You will not need all the pieces. I left out all the Christmas dies to create a camp scene instead. Die cut the designer paper on the background die and adhered to the base as the background scene. Now it is time to adhere your 3D card together so you can build your scene. Stamp the sentiment on white card-stock. Die cut your images using the coordinating die set. Stamp your sentiment on a separate piece of white card-stock and die cut using the sentiment strip dies. Die cut all sizes of the trees from the Holiday Scene die set multiple times. Now it is time to build your scene. First, add your colored image to…

Do you LOVE all the water-coloured paintings you see across the internet? If you shy away because you think it’s too hard, think again! As paper crafters we have so many tools already in our stash to quickly and easily achieve gorgeous, water-coloured art! For this adorable card I stamped my Impression Obsession pig stamp onto some water colour paper using Ranger Archival Ink. I like to use a light soft colour, this allows me to see all the lines but it’s not so stark to add too much contrast to my end project. Next, I used my Simon Hurley dye inks to colour the image. Tap your ink pad on a non-stick surface, spray with water and now you have have everything you need to paint. Spritz your stamped image with some water. This allows the colours picked up by your brush to flow onto the paper, creating that dreamy,…

Happy  Tuesday! Kim here on the Creative Scrapbooker blog again, sharing a couple of projects I worked on this past weekend! I’m sure, if you are a bit like me, that every now and then you find some paper that makes you super happy! Well, when I came across Echo Park Paper Co. Little Lumberjack Collection, it made me squeal just a bit! I LOVE all the plaids, patterns and whimsical designs. They will honestly keep lumberjacks of all ages happy! I first created a simple layout. I layered a square of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock to the plaid background. I don’t often work with exact measurements, instead I often just use intuition based all parts! I then cut 4 rectangles from papers in the collection, approximately 3.5 x 5. This became the main component to build upon, from this point it’s all fun and embellishment! I had fun layering the stickers,…

It’s been 5 weeks since the birth of my third child, Claire. It’s about this stage when you are craving some of your old routines. For me, that’s crafting. It can be incredibly hard to find that inspiration and get back into your creative self especially with limited time. It’s always nice to be pushed by challenges or to be inspired by someone else’s work. Keeping it simple has always been a great way for me to get my juices flowing. For this month’s project, I have used the By the Dock Bundle by Stampin’ Up!. You can find this bundle in their Occasions Catalogue. Living on the East Coast of Canada means that I am always pulled towards anything nautical so this stamp set and coordinating framelits are a must-have item. The first step I did was to water colour several images from this stamp set. This time I…

Happy Day! Kim here on the blog today sharing a quick little card that was so satisfying to make! Why? Because I love dabbling in mixed media art supplies and when I can bring it into a card to give, it’s a win-win! First I cut a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock to work from. This 110 lb, bright white cardstock is my go-to foundation for scrapbooking and cardmaking. It holds up to everything I throw at it, it is my ‘workhorse’ in my craft room. I added a thin layer of gesso with an old credit card. I added 3 small blobs [such a technical term!] of acrylic paint to my Tim Holtz glass mat. I used a wet brush to add my paint to the background. Honestly, this step could also be done with a dry brush, it would give more opaque coverage. I like the colour…

Hey Creative Scrapbooker Fans! It has been snowy and wet here on the West Coast of Canada and I have already started counting down the days until Spring arrives. So for today’s project, I’ve created this fun and bright The Journey is the Start Card. To create my card, I’ve used stamps, inks and Paints from Ranger Ink ,  Super Stock from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine, dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs, embossing powder from Emerald Creek Craft Supplies and adhesive from Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. You’ll want to grab a cup of your favourite beverage and learn how to recreate my card at home. To start, die cut a 4” Stitched Rectangle from Elizabeth Craft Designs out of Super Stock from Creative Scrapbooker Magazine. Next, you’ll need the Honeycomb Small Dylusions Stencil from Ranger Ink. Place the stencil on the rectangle piece as desired and use a blending tool with foam…

Hello everyone! It’s Kerry Engel, here today to share with you an adorable card that is just begging to be touched. Between the embossing, stenciling and flocking this card is full of texture-therapy; for the maker and the receiver. Cards for any occasion are my favorite ones to keep in my stash. This cute little die-cut owl could be used on a multitude of occasions and I find his tummy is just the right size to hold a sentiment. My favourite trick when putting together more detailed die cut items is to use 3D Foam Squares under key areas. I used the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L 3D Foam Squares to raise my owl’s head up and away from his body. Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets cut like butter and emboss like a boss. To create this adorable Owl I used the Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock Transfer…

Design team member Kim Gowdy had some serious fun playing with the Let’s Shake Our Tail Feathers stamp set by Picket Fence Studios! Check out this GORGEOUS card she designed. Here is the Let’s Shake Our Tail Feathers stamp set by Picket Fence Studios that she used. She paired that set with the Picket Fence Studios The Hen House stamp set and coordinating die. That chicken makes a perfect peacock! Kim used Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks to color the card. The ink was applied using Picket Fence Studios The Life Changing Blender Brushes. Everything on Kim’s card was adhered using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L including 3D Foam Square to pop up the peacock! Here is another look. It’s Friday night!  A perfect time to “shake those feathers”.
