Happy Fall Creative Scrapbookers! Does the change of season excite you? I LOVE it! I just wish winter didn’t follow so quickly! This time of year always gets me thinking about Halloween. I get energized from the decorations, costumes, candy and of course Halloween themed scrapbooking and cardmaking products! My card share started with pulling these Stampers Anonymous sets from my stash ~ I love the both! I pulled out all kinds or Ranger Inks and got started with my plan! I stamped my web image onto a piece of Creative Scrapbooker Superstock and embossed with Speckled Egg Embossing Glaze. This gave me a FABULOUS image to resist the Distress Oxide Inks I would be using to create my background. I added several layers of the grungy stamp to the edges with all the colours from the background and also spritzed with water. Using black Archival Ink, I stamped the…

Do you remember paper-tole from the 80’s? It was a very fussy art form that involved layering identical prints to build a 3D pictures. I love to make dimensional cards and there is a quicker and easier way to get a suede-paper-tole look and not waste anything! How to make two 3-dimensional cards at once: leave one Therm O Web Deco Foil Toner Card Front intact. use a second Therm O Web Deco Foil Toner Card Front to cut out a large flower for a 3D flower. layer the remaining pieces of the second card to build a stunning 3D floral cluster. Foiling made easy: Therm O Web Deco Foil has partnered with Unity Stamp Co. to create an exclusive line of Toner Card Fronts. The Toner Card front is made for foiling. You can have a lot of fun changing up the foil colours but for this set, I…

Well, what a weird summer it has been. While most weddings this year have been rescheduled or postponed around the world, here in Newfoundland there are some scattered lovebirds tying the knot. It’s so nice to try to get back to some normalcy. I think we can all agree, it’s great for the soul to have a reason to celebrate. Throughout the past few months, I’ve been stamping images and watercolouring while watching TV with my husband. The Bloom and Grow Polymer Stamp by Stampin’ Up! is one of my favourites. I absolutely love the font pairings on this stamp set! This card begins with a sponged blue background. I like having a blue background on most of my cards to help anchor any images.  I use a simple technique of sponging onto a white card base with the retired Stampin’ Up! Tempting Turquoise ink. Since I do this so…

Hello everyone! Cathie Allan here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. Creating a “notecard” to remember is so easy when you have a great 6X6 background stamp.  Impression Obsession’s collection of 6X6, red rubber (for that perfect image) rubber stamps is massive. With over 280, deeply etched, full of amazing detail, 6X6 rubber stamps to choose from you will be in “stamp heaven” for a long, long time. For this blog post I am focusing on the “Pixel Daisy” image. Because I was wanting to create a number of “any occasion I need them for” cards, I kept the process super simple and fast. Yes, pigment ink is my choice for ink for “oh, so many versatile reasons”. Pigment ink can mimic so very many “specialty inks” when you know how to use them and I love that the projects I made with them “30 plus years ago” look…

Wow, I can’t believe that August is upon us. 2020 has certainly been a wild ride especially in our household with a new baby. Claire is now six months old and we are resuming some of our pre-COVID activities. I’ve also started getting into a better habit of making time for me in the craft room. When the Stampin’ Up! 2020-2021 new annual catalogue was released in June, I ordered some new 12×12 Rainbow Glimmer Paper. I mean… I am obsessed. But it’s the type of product that I would tend to “hoard”. Almost like it was too precious to cut up! Not today. Well okay. Just the one sheet. But I did it. I cut it up! I knew that this paper was going to be the star of the show but to help bring it to life I paired it with an image from the Zany Zebras stamp…

Hey everyone! Cathy Caines here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog! I had so much fun putting this project together for you this month. I was completely inspired by the new Stampin’ Up! Game On stamp set. My family are ‘gamers’ so I knew that this stamp set was going to be a huge hit in my world. While none of us play chest anymore, I couldn’t help but create with the chest pieces first. It was very evident to me that the background of this card should resemble a game board. The Stampin’ Up! Stitched Shapes framelits has a one-inch square that brings this idea to life. We do play Yahtzee and Monopoly, and well, many games with dice. It could work for any age group. I often struggle with using black in my cards are a dominant colour but the Bricks and Mortar 3D embossing folder made…
