Hello, Connie Nichol here with some cards I created with Impression Obsession stamps and dies, Chameleon Pens and Core’dinations cardstock.  I only meant to make one card, but I was having so much fun stamping and colouring that I ended up with a few slightly different versions.  My philosophy is that while you’ve got all the supplies scattered about, keep creating!!  It’s an awesome feeling to have a bunch of cards prepared and ready to go when you need them.  But now I can’t decide which one I like best….  they are all sort of similar but different. When I started creating these, I stamped the Mixed Flower stamp from Impression Obsession three times on white cardstock with Ranger Adirondack black dye ink and coloured them with Chameleon pens.  These markers are very unique – they are alcohol based markers that allow you to get a variety of colour tones with…

Kim here from my super-HOT scrapbooking room! [Note to self: when the furnace dies…air conditioning goes in at the same time as the new furnace!] Tomorrow we celebrate Canada Day from East to West and in between! Our big, beautiful country is so worthy of its 148th celebration! I felt it appropriate to create a scrapbook page in honour of Canada! As I mentioned…it is hot in my house! I scrapbook on the upper level of our house & hot air rises! I had a hard time staying focused in the heat, so my layout is pretty simple…quick to put together! I started by using Core’dinations cardstock for my base& mat. I cut the SIZZIX maple leaf for my Canada flag. I used DCWV cork sheets for the red components of the flag…I love the texture! For the center of the flag I printed out the lyrics of the Canadian…

Kim Gowdy here with a simple page anyone can create. I don’t know about you but sometimes I head to my craft room in hopes of being creative, turn on the T.V. for “company” and get pulled into whatever show happens to be on…making for some very unproductive creative time. If this sounds familiar…this page is for YOU! Adornit has come out with these fun Art Play Printables. 12 x 22 pages with fun images for you to colour, I am certain you find a few you can’t live without! The pages are made from sturdy, quality watercolour paper, so they will stand up easily to paint and markers. So here’s the  trick…turn on the T.V. and colour! Relax, enjoy the program and be productive…your brain can design a layout [which takes more focus] later! For this layout I pulled out my Chameleon pens and just had fun. They make it so easy…

Hello! Kim here to show you how to make some gorgeous watercolour style backgrounds for your stamped images. I will be using a Gel Printing Plate, Tombow markers, water and Canadian Scrapbooker Super Stock. The Canadian Scrapbooker Super Stock works best because it is so strong and can hold up to the amount of wet media used on this project. I am so NOT a video person, but thought it would be easier to show you this simple technique in video format. With the magic of my iPhone…here we go! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sq679RRuEQY&feature=youtu.be After making the backgrounds, let them dry completely, then they are ready for you to create with! I pulled out some of my favourite Magenta Stamps to make three different cards. For this style of card I love to use Versafine Onyx Black ink. It is a pigment ink that consistently produces crisp, stamped images. I coloured a few…

Hello everyone!  It’s Kelly Klapstein here today to share a quick and easy technique you can use with your stamped images. It all started with some Tombow Dual Brush pens and a really pretty Impression Obsession stamp. I used a Clearsnap black pigment ink and stamped onto Canadian Scrapbooker superstock, which is a nice heavy weight to stand up to this wet technique.Then I slowed right down and coloured in the lines. After making a Mother’s Day card with this pretty coloured image, I decided to try something different. I thought, hey, let’s try a watercolour effect because these wonderful Tombow pens are water based and blendable. So I basically scribbled colours all over this stamped image, not worrying about staying in the lines and then spritzed it all over with water. And it’s that easy! Just let dry or use your heat gun to speed up the process. I made…

I don’t know what it is, but Graphic 45 papers make me pull out my sharpest scissors and start fussy cutting! The images on some of these papers from Botanical Tea collection made fantastic embellishments for my layout. One of my favourite things I LOVE about Graphic 45 collections is that they layer so easily. I think as scrapbookers, especially if new to the craft; layering can be the hardest thing. Graphic 45 has nailed it! Fantastic combinations of large and small prints in color harmony make it simple for everyone to work with. Add to the mix [my title] some Core’dinations Signature Series cardstock; colours designed to work with the Graphic 45 palette and you have a match made in scrapbooker’s heaven! My layout below is an example of how easily these products all play together. I have also distressed the edges of some of my papers with Stampin’…
