HELLO SUMMER! Hey everyone, – Cathie Allan here – thought I would share with you a totally fun and easy card that you can create in the wee hours of the morning. Why? … in the “wee hours of the morning?” ….. well, because, it is May 23rd and it is behaving like summer outside so we NEED to spend “some” of our “crafting time” in our gardens and on our deck.   I used totally “doable” stamping techniques to  create a fun, shape card that “wanted to be a slider card”.  The background was simply stamped using a wonderful solid, daisy stamp from Impression Obsession and two fabulous pigment colors from Clearsnap. Since it was pigment ink, I was able to stamp the darker, Antique Pewter images first and then stamp the lighter, Buttercup images on top of the dark color.  Pigment ink allows me to do this and I…

#imbringingbirthdaysback It’s a movement. A movement supported by Shannon West and Stampin’ Up! A movement to make sure that people feel the love on their birthdays with handmade cards. It seems to be a perfect match for me. And certainly I don’t need another excuse to create a card. When Stampin’ Up! released the 2016 Occasions catalogue, I knew that I needed the Balloon Bouquet punch but I didn’t take it out of the package until now… and now I can’t stop playing with them. There are two balloon sizes in this punch. In addition, there’s an even smaller balloon punch with the Party Punch pack. I mean, really… these balloons will never get old. To create this card, I heat embossed several gold balloons from the Balloon Celebration stamp set on watercolour paper. Using my Stampin’ Up! markers and an Aquapainter, I coloured the balloons. After punching them out,…

Hello Creative Scrapbookers! Kim Gowdy here with a simple but fun idea, that we have visited before. I often like to find ways to bring trends into the stash I already have if possible. There is no denying that adult colouring is a huge trend! Here is my twist from my own scrapbook stash. I made these cards by stamping images from my Impression Obsession stamps onto Core’dinations Glitter Paper. Use a multi-surface ink like Clearsnap ColorBox Chalk Inks, I used Charcoal. Let it dry…it WILL take longer than on regular paper…be patient. Once it’s dry I grabbed my Chameleon Pens and coloured away…it was so fun! The alcohol inks flowed beautifully on the glitter paper and dried very quickly. Here is a third quick card I made while I had the glitter cardstock out. I took the arrows from this Stampin’ Up/Sizzix die set and cut them out of the…

Hi ALL! Kim Gowdy here with a quick card share! Trying to get my head out of winter; so I’ve had fun creating a card, using this leaf stamp and sentiment stamp from Magenta. The card kind of reminds me of a tropical destination [NOT on my calendar] and warms my winter heart. All of the colour applied to the card was done with Sakura’s CRAY-PAS oil pastels and some yellow was added to the background with Sakura’s Koi watercolor brush pens. The oil pastels were quite fun to play with. They layer and blend so smoothly. I added a few colours and used a piece of paper towel on my finger to blend and kept layering until I was happy…SO EASY. The colors are soft yet vibrant…I look forward to more creative time with them. Have a CREATIVE day!

Today we are featuring Jayme Loge’s take on our monthly sketch challenge. SUPPPLIES: Bazzill Basics Paper cardstock, BasicGrey patterned paper, May Arts ribbon, Pageframes acrylic snowflake, Simple Stories sticker. Tombow Xtreme adhesives. Scraps of Info – “I save leftover bits of paper and embellishments for the purpose of making cards, especially if I only need one at a time. This card was made with some real treasures as I think the BasicGrey paper line (Kioshi) is at least 5 years old! It was created to be an Easter/Spring line, but I thought the crisp cool colours worked for a wintry feel.” Jayme Loge Jayme based her card on our monthly sketchy challenge!
