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”.

Art Impressions make stamps full of whimsy and humor that allow me to create individualized cards that leave the recipient with a smile and a giggle.  To create this set of cards I combined the Art Impressions stamp “stress, chaos, and mayhem” (#4158)With Amy Tangerine watercolor paints by American Crafts Simples Stories, “I Am” collection Glue Dots Adhesives Chameleon Detail Pen Here are the details on how I created these cards. Watercolor your lady. Stamp the ‘tired’ lady on watercolor paper with permanent ink. This prevents the ink from bleeding when you wet the paper and add paint. I used Amy Tangerine’s watercolor set to paint my ladies. It has a good assortment of colors that can be mixed to create even more colors. To achieve the graduated watercolor effect I used the wet-on-wet technique. I fill in an area (like the pants) with a thin layer of water. Then I…

Hello! Kim here, sharing a cute, birthday card I’ve recently made! As I rummaged through my stash of previously made cards, I realized I was getting low on birthday cards! This will be a quick card to make multiples of, to have on hand! For this card, I have used my Art Impression’s Cupcake BFFs stamp.

I am Jayme Loge –  a writer for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine and I am delighted to provide some inspiration for you today as I play with my Ranger Tim Holtz Alcohol Ink Yupo Paper and Alcohol inks!
