Life is tough sometimes. For those going through hardships, we often don’t know what to say or do. Usually, we can’t do very much besides be there and listen. For those times, a card can be a great way to show love and support. Sympathy cards are never fun to make. I really believe Stampin’ Up! has done a great job finding the words we all want to say in the Beautiful Promenade stamp set. The Petal Promenade Designer Series Paper is photographic paper. It’s perfect to create cards quickly. For this particular card, I was going for a vintage floral feel. I distressed the edges of the cardstock first with the open edge of my scissors and then matched the ink with the cardstock sponging over the edges. “Houston, we have a problem” – I accidentally ripped the top of the card while I was distressing and instead of…

Good “almost” Valentine’s Day to you all. Creating a message of love for someone that is dear to you takes that message to an entirely new level. Your message becomes a keepsake that your loved one will treasure for many years to come and possibly if your loved ones are like my husband …. it’ll be cherished forever! You can spend hours on a handmade card or you can use extraordinary products to make it look like you spent hours.  “Painting with glitter” is a simple, fun technique that always takes a card to the next level. You can do the whole card as a “glitter painting” OR you can simply add a glitter, painted embellishment. In the spring issue of “Canadian Scrapbooker” 2011 I shared this technique in my “It’s All About Rubber” article. Since then our publication has gone international and therefore the name of this wonderful magazine…

There’s a new baby joining my family!  Hey crafters, Nicole Wright here and no it’s not me!  My great nephew will be here in a couple months and I needed a card STAT for the baby shower.  Let me set the scene… I need a quick card because I have left it to the last minute.  My Brother Scan N’ Cut2 is perfect for making this quick card in just 15 minutes.  I whipped through the cuts and went straight for the animals.  I mean you can’t go wrong with a giraffe.  I select the cuts and adjust my size to fit my standard card.  Load my scrap paper onto the cut mat… in the middle because it’s sticky there. I cut the words in both patterned paper and black to create a shadow.  Why not… I’m already cutting right.  Then I do the same with the giraffe.  I cut the patterned…

Hi, Connie Nichol here today with a selection of shimmery foiled Christmas cards I made with Therm O Web Foil-Mates and Fancy Foils from Gina K Designs. I am new to the idea of foiling, and I have to tell you that I am in LOVE. Although I was initially intimidated by the idea, it is so simple to create these beautiful cards. You just place the foil of your choice over a pre-printed toner sheet (the Foil-Mates), run it through a laminator and the magic happens. Here are a few cards that I whipped up – once you start laminating foils onto patterns, it’s hard to stop! Just add a bit of ribbon or a couple of flowers and you’re good to go. You can even use the used foil for a card background as I did in the last card. The used foils are too pretty to throw…

Happy November Friends! How sweet are these little snowmen? It won’t be long before I am making snowmen in my backyard with my little ones. The Spirited Snowmen Stamp Set by Stampin’ Up! is the perfect stamp set if you are looking to create a set of cards. It has a great combination of images and sentiments. But best of all… is that it’s simply super cute.  Stampin‘ Up! has a Snowflake Snowcase during the month of November and these Snowfall Thinlet Dies are part of this suite. It features 19 dies with snowflakes ranging from small to big; however, my favourite has to be the large size snowflake. How gorgeous is that?  These snowflakes are perfectly paired with the Softly Falling Embossing Folder. This embossing folder gives the illusion of snow falling onto the ground. You can catch me using this snowflake and embossing folder combination throughout the whole…

I truly had some “outrageous inky fun” creating this fun card with some new techniques that I have been playing with.  These are not meant to scare you … these techniques are easy, fun and so “freaky” versatile, from the fun new way I am creating the background using my Clearsnap ColorBox inks … to the “foilicious” way I played with my pumpkin die cuts… to the “spooky/sparkly, embossed” fun of the finished look of my Impression Obsession, Happy Halloween, die.  I am going to keep you in suspense though.
