Happy Tuesday friends! Kim Gowdy was on our latest web show – Scribble Sticks Gnome House Card creating this happy little fairy house card. Makes me want to see what is going on inside that adorable little house! Kim added the customized sentiment to her card using the Brother P-Touch Cube (PT-P300BTAD). This little dude is a GAME CHANGER!One of the things I love about the P-Touch Cube is that the ribbon comes in different widths, colours, designs and textures! You can create labels that are thin or you can create labels that are thicker… all by changing out the ribbon cartridge. You can also change the colour of the ribbon, colour of the font, length of the ribbon, the font and so much more! Make everything custom or use one of the built in templates.

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? For some reason when people say “watercolor” I get all nervous – like only highly trained artists can create a fun watercolor effect.

Technique Tasters Web Show #96 – Distress Crayons Stencilling Technique  – is probably one of my favourite videos we videoed with Christy Riopel.
