Kim here today sharing another fun coffee card. This simple card can be used for many different occasions, toss in a coffee card and it also makes a great gift! I used lots of fun products that played so well together to make this card, starting with CSM Superstock as my card base. I transferred the Brutus Monroe – Dry Brush foil onto the Brutus Monroe – Coffee Rings toner sheets. Both of these products are made by Therm-o-Web. The foil is easily applied to the toner sheet using a hot laminator like mine from Royal Sovereign. Next, I blended some Distress Oxide inks over the foiled toner sheet. The foil resists the ink, so the shimmer is not lost! I like to buff it a bit with a paper towel once the ink is set. I stamped my sentiment and coffee cup from the “But First, Coffee” set from…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! My name is Jayme Loge and I hope you enjoy this little blog offering for your inspiration.  Because let me tell you, my oh my! did I have fun playing with these adorable Whoot stamp collection from Art Impressions! I just love their squeezable, squishable big-eyed faces! They are simple enough cards, but a lot of work goes into coloring or painting the images and I just didn’t want to get in the way of their whooty cuteness! The first card I made features a simple stenciled background (Tim Holtz stencils). I used a sponge applicator and Dylusions paint over a page torn out from an old book. I totally geek out over using book pages any time I can! I colored the stamped image with Chameleon markers and assembled everything on a Kraft cardstock. The next card features a row of water colored Whoot with a…

I have completely fallen in love with Kerry Engel’s martini greeting card! How fun is this beautiful little creation. I can think of a few girlfriends who would get a real giggle out of receiving this card. To create the background Kerry followed these basic steps 1. On a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock, blend Ranger Tim Holtz Distress Oxide inks. 2. Spritz with water and watch the oxide effect. 3. Gently pat a Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Adhesive sheet onto the base – only part of the adhesive will sit down. 4. Sprinkle with Ranger embossing powder and heat set! Here is a complete list of supplies that Kerry used.

Do you ever find yourself playing with product, not knowing what will come of it and finish with a fun project! This was the case with this coffee card! I started by playing with some Ranger Distress Oxide Inks, masking off the outside border. Once the colours were placed I used this fun Pam Bray stamp from Emerald Creek to stamp over the coloured centre. Next I masked away the centre, so that I could use the same stamp around the border! Fun & simple! This was the perfect background for a fun, chipboard coffee cup from Southern Ridge Trading Company. The chipboard piece was embossed with Emerald Creek’s Just Java Aroma Embossing Powder – smells as good as it looks! I outlined the words of the chipboard cup with a Ranger  Dylusions’ paint pen and added some ‘steam’ with a Distress Marker. Coffee cheers to you!

This is one of my most favourite times of the year. The leaves are turning and there’s a chill in the air. But there’s something pretty special about the pumpkins and shorter nights. Maybe it’s the beautiful natural colour combinations. Or that the holiday season is around the corner. Perhaps it’s the idea of sipping hot drinks in your favourite sweater on your deck. I can’t quite put my finger on it but I know there’s something about this time of year that I love.Th e Stampin’ Up! Country Home Stamp Set was just released in the 2018 Holiday Catalogue and it simply gave me ‘all the feels’. So much so that I used this stamp set as the focal point in a card swap. A card swap? Yup. If you aren’t sure what that is, let me tell you. Sometimes in the world of cardmaking, a group of crafters…

I have a problem. I might need help, an addiction you might say…I LOVE all things Ranger, nothing Ranger is boring…it’s ALL super fun and lets my creativity flow! I sat down to make a quick card for this blog post, I pulled out some inks and stamps, but couldn’t stick with one Ranger designer, so I kept pulling out product from 4 designers! Check out all this yumminess…Distress Oxides, Dylusions paint pens, Distress Spray, Dina Wakley stamps, Scribble Sticks, Wendy Vecchi embossing powder and my Dylusions Journal Block. All of these fabulous supplies worked harmoniously to create my card. I doodled, traced, embossed and just had FUN! Not once did I overthink the process, and I love the finished card! What are your favourite Ranger products? Do you honestly have just one? We are thrilled to have Ranger as one of Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival sponsors. We hope to…

Is it already Back to School time?  It sure is and on the blog today we are using the Brother ScanNCut2.  Hey crafters, Nicole here from Nicole Wright Designs and I am excited to start crafting with this awesome machine.  This is my first time creating with the Brother ScanNCut2.   Let’s start off with a simple cut to make a quick card. The Brother  ScanNCut2 comes loaded with a great selection of cuts to get you started.  I selected the “BACK TO SCHOOL” cut. The large touch screen is awesome and user-friendly.  You can adjust the size, cut placement and a lot of other options I will be learning.  Select cut and hit the big green play button!  BAAM… you are cutting! I used some scrap patterned paper and black cardstock to layer a shadow.  I adhered the “BACK TO SCHOOL” patterned paper cut to the black cardstock.  Then I selected…

Cathy Caines here on the blog today playing with the Stampin’ Up!  Little Elephant stamp set and coordinating punch. Call me crazy but I love a cute punch. Punches are easy. I don’t have to move much. Its fast. And it’s effective. So when a stamp set and a punch as cute as this gets released from Stampin’ Up!, it’s first on my list. Here I am introducing…. the Little Elephant Bundle. #socuteThis cutie was sitting in my craft room for almost a month before I took the plastic off. It was about time to get this stamp set dirty! When I first approached these projects using the Little Elephant stamp set and punch, I started with the stacking technique. It seems to be the thing to do with little critters and animals these days. And I can understand why… it’s easy and of course, ridiculously adorable. A quick hint…

Hello crafty friends! TracyMcLennon here, and today I am back up on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog to share a Best Wishes Card I created featuring the Heartfelt Creations Eyelet Lace Frame dies, Clearsnap ColorBox products and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L. I wanted to showcase just how gorgeous these frame dies were, and how you can use all the different layers in one card. Die cut the following: Using white cardstock die cut the largest frame and the smallest frame. You will be using the piece that comes out of the middle of the smallest frame. Using plum cardstock die cut the largest frame. This time you are simply using what comes out of the middle. Using gold shimmer cardstock, die cut the smallest frame. This time you are using the intricate frame. Cut a piece of gold cardstock that is just a little larger than the white die cut…
