Each and every week, we look back in time and remember the beautiful art of our late friend and colleague Christy Riopel.  Christy’s art was and still is timeless. So many of her creations from way back when are still hot and trendy today. Here is a blog post from over 6 years ago that Christy created for Creative Scrapbooker Magazine about recycling and embossing pop cans! AWESOME! Upcycling Pop Cans to Make Embossed “Tin Panels” by Christy Riopel I was inspired by an old tin ceiling panels when I created this page. I love how they go with the vintage feel of the photo. To make the panels I cut the top and bottom off a pop can and down the side. I then took my Spellbinders embossing folder and embossed the metal from the can. I then painted it with gesso and let it dry. I sprayed it…

Hello, Connie Nichol here today with an easy birthday card made from an Art Impressions stamp and die set.    Art Impressions has a huge selection of different interactive stamp sets which need to be pulled, unfolded, twisted, spun or shaken.  Go check them out. The designs will be sure to bring a big smile to your face.    Who doesn’t love to get a card that flutters or wobbles? I played with the Birthday Fairy set to create a couple of cards – the set comes with the stamps, dies and an action ‘wobble’.  You can see from the side photo that the fairy’s skirt is dimensional and mobile. Here’s another slightly different version of the Birthday Fairy card in royal blue. Here’s the stamp set: I stamped the fairy and her skirt with Clearsnap Top Boss ink and embossed with black embossing powder.  I find that embossing an image…

Good morning and happy Monday! Kim here with a quick birthday card share today! This month I challenged myself to use the April Sketchy Challenge as a starting point for a card. Even before choosing my products, I knew I wanted to make the triangle accent from stamps! I created a paper mask from my Impression Obsession stamped image so I could easily overlap my stamped design making it look like one continuous image – I love how it turned out! I took a black marker and ruler to divide the two sides. I created three layered areas using stamps, stencil and Clearsnap Chalk ink! I fussy cut the bird image and layered it with the Impression Obsession die cut pine boughs and a little black tread. The “Happy Birthday” sentiment was a perfect finishing touch! Thanks for taking the time to check out my card, try one of our…

Hey there everyone! Cathie Allan here today sharing with you one of my articles from the Summer 2016 issue of Creative Scrapbooker Magazine – Creating Faux Mini-Canvases. I know you are going to LOVE IT! Faux Mini-Canvases by Cathie Allan In this issue, we are going to create “faux mini-canvases.” This special combination of background colours and the way we apply the ink layer after layer will totally have you thinking that we worked on canvas.

We are using pigment ink—the most light-fast stamping medium there is—so you will be able to enjoy them for a long, long time. I invite you to use the techniques we are stepping out for you today on your favourite craft project—a card, a scrapbook page, a knock-out art journal page or any crafting project…

SPRING is just around the corner and with the days getting longer , the sun shining brighter I just NEEDED to play with some fun bright colors from Clearsnap and some “spring like” images from Stampendous.

I have photographed each project separately and posted those photos at the end of this blog.It all began with these rubber stamp images from Stampendous, plus a gorgeous new metal stencil.Media of choice was my Pinwheel Petal Point and re-inkers from Clearsnap, my ColorBox stylus and foam tips and a ColorBox black pigment stamp pad…
