If you are like me and find watching embossing powder change to liquid as it heats up oddly satisfying, this is the technique for you! To create this card first cut out a base from Ranger Simon Hurley Create Stark White Cardstock. I used an Elizabeth Craft Designs Stitched Rectangle die.  On a second piece of white cardstock, emboss the brick wall using a Tim Holtz Embossing Folder. Once embossed cut out the brickwall using a slightly small stitched rectangle die from the same  Elizabeth Craft Designs die set.  Adhere the brick wall in the center of the larger stitched rectangle using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L E-Z Squares. Set aside. Next, on a piece of white cardstock, lay a Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz stencil down. Apply Ranger Simon Hurley Create ink with a Mini Blending Tool. Lift up the stencil and gently spread the ink filling in the white spots.…

What do you get when you mix Art Impressions Rubber Stamps with Simple Stories?!?!? A charming little card that makes you feel like spring! To create the card I cut a card front from a piece of pink striped patterned paper from the Simple Stories Bunnies & Bloom collection. I cut the same size card front from Ranger Simon Hurley Create Stark White cardstock. Using a Sizzix Framelits circle die, I cut out a circle window in the upper portion of both the card fronts – in the exact same spot. Using Glue Dots Adhesives Gluetape I adhered the two-card fronts together. This process made the pink stripe paper stronger so I could pop it up later. Next, cut out a piece of Prima Marketing white watercolor paper. Pop it into your Tonic Studios  Tim Holtz Stamping Platform. Securing it into place. Stamp the Art Impressions floral stamp onto the…

I can’t stop playing with this A Tree Die from Picket Fence Studios. Here is a quick little card I put together using it. I started by die cutting out 3 trees from Ranger Simon Hurley Create cardstock. I adhered two of the trees together and coloured the third with Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink. I then adhered the coloured tree on top of the two trees with some of the white showing behind. Next, I blended three shades of Ranger Tim Holtz Distress ink onto a piece of cardstock. I used my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes for a perfect blend. Next, I layed the Funky Leaves stencil from Picket Fence Studios on the background and added some white Distress ink. The look is very soft and subtle. I spritzed with water cause I LOVE those white water dots! With my Ranger Dina Wakley Media acrylic paint…

Hello everyone – Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog. I had an afternoon of happy accidents recently when I was playing with Therm O Web Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets. I ended up creating a card and a scrapbook page. I started with my MultiCraft Forever in Time burlap. I wanted to see if I could add the Flock Transfer Sheets to MultiCraft Forever in Time burlap using the Therm O Web Deco Foil Transfer Gel Duo. The Transfer Gel DUO works two ways; you can transfer flocking or foil using heat from a laminator OR pressure from a die-cutting machine. Transfer Gel DUO is a permanent transfer medium that dries clear and remains tacky for easy use. I spread the Transfer Gel DUO through stencils and laid a piece of the Flock Transfer Sheet on top and ran it through my die cut machine. A…

Hello everyone Kerry Engel here today on the Creative Scrapbooker Magazine blog playing with Heartfelt Creations. I love growing Calla Lilies and every year I have several blooming in my yard so of course I was instantly drawn to this Heartfelt Creations collection. Once I start making flowers I end up making a bouquet’s worth. They are addictive and so rewarding. The Heartfelt Creations, Calla Lily collection is made up of papers, stamps and dies that coordinate for easy, beautiful floral creativity. I did a little research on the colors of Calla lilies – to help me with my card making. According to the Proflowers website: White symbolizes purity and innocence. Yellow symbolizes gratitude. Pink symbolizes appreciation and romance. Purple symbolizes royalty and admiration. Black symbolizes elegance and mystery. Red symbolizes beauty and courage. ….Good info to know when you’re making cards! Here’s how I created my flowers: Using the…

Do you LOVE all the water-coloured paintings you see across the internet? If you shy away because you think it’s too hard, think again! As paper crafters we have so many tools already in our stash to quickly and easily achieve gorgeous, water-coloured art! For this adorable card I stamped my Impression Obsession pig stamp onto some water colour paper using Ranger Archival Ink. I like to use a light soft colour, this allows me to see all the lines but it’s not so stark to add too much contrast to my end project. Next, I used my Simon Hurley dye inks to colour the image. Tap your ink pad on a non-stick surface, spray with water and now you have have everything you need to paint. Spritz your stamped image with some water. This allows the colours picked up by your brush to flow onto the paper, creating that dreamy,…
