Kim Gowdy is on our web show today walking you through how to create die cut inserts. This is a relatively simple technique that gives your project an added sense of depth and slightly more texture. This technique is even easier if you have coordinating dies for your stamps so you eliminate any tedious fussy cutting. No Talkie Before Coffee Here is the card that Kim will be stepping out on our webshow. The Art Impressions stamped image of the happy lady spinning in her office chair was stamped and then cut out with a coordinating die. Kim then used the coordinating die to cut out where she would like to place the image on her card. Next she simple adhered the die cut stamped image into the space – creating a die cut insert.  Pretty simple. If I confused you – it will all be clear after you watch…

Have you tried creating a watercolor effect on a scrapbook page or a card lately?

The Web Show When Kelly Klapstein filmed this webshow with us a few months back I was excited!  Easy watercolor effect is only a STAMP away!!! YAHOOO! Pair that up with ink, the Brother ScanNCut and some Tombow Dual Brush pens and voila! You got yourself an EASY, ANYONE can re-create card! I love it. The Supplies The base of the card is Creative Scrapbooker Super Stock. A…

The Project The Supplies Ranger Distress Crayons. You can purchase these crayons individually or in sets of 6. Today there is a total of 10 sets of 6 colours. YUMMY! Art-C self adhesive stencils come in a large variety of sizes and shapes and sentiments. They are truly easy to use and THEY STICK! I love that – no worrying about your medium…

Els Van de Burgt is back on our show creating super cute BonBon boxes with a variety of different products and some super fun and easy to follow techniques.
