Galaxy Background Birthday Card by Sarah

|

Have you tried inking up a galaxy background? I hadn’t given it a go yet – til now! Cover a panel of card in patches of ink in a range of colours – yellow, purple, pink and aqua. Any kind goes, I used mostly Distress Oxides, one Catherine Pooler dye ink and a generic pink pigment ink. Smoosh and blend til you’ve got no white space left. Let them mix as much or as little as you like. Only parts … Read More

Masked Sunset One Layer Cards by Laura

|

Hello, crafty friends! It’s Laura on the blog with you today, and I’ve got three, one-layer cards featuring Distress-blended sunsets with silhouette images to set off the tropical scene. I used Catherine Pooler Designs (CPD) stamps from the Tropically Yours Collection and I am totally stoked (see what I did there?) with the beachy-retro, 80’s vibe this trio of cards gives. As usual, lots to cover today, so let’s get started! First, I got to work creating my backgrounds. I … Read More

Rainbow Birthday Wishes Card by Sarah

|

A bit of ink smooshing from me today.   Tap your red ink pad directly onto your acrylic stamping block, roughly filling in the first inch in from the end. Spritz the inked block with a little water and press it down onto your card front with the edge of the block at the edge of the card – let the ink smoosh rightwards across the card front, sometimes it’ll bloom out further, sometimes it’ll stay about an inch wide … Read More

Using Pre Made Elements to Create a Quick Card by Laura

|

Hello, and welcome back, crafty friends! It’s Laura with you today and I’m back with my first post since the Easter break. Here in Ireland we had lots of warm, beautiful weather and we enjoyed being outside most of the days. All the sunshine inspired me to use stamp sets from the Catherine Pooler Tropically Yours Collection. I have the entire collection from when it was sold as the limited edition Tropically Yours Stamp of Approval Box last year. If … Read More

Sparkly Peace And Comfort Card By Sarah

Time for some metallics and glitter! Blend up a background straight onto your card blank in green and blue inks. Add a gently curving swoosh of embellishment mousse in from each side with a tissue, then put the card aside to completely dry. Stamp and heat emboss the mandala and leaves on vellum paper. I did the mandala just in silver and the leaves in silver first, heated til only just melting, then allow to cool, reapply embossing ink and … Read More

HOLA PARTY ANIMAL CARD BY SARAH

|

This could work as a general hello notecard or I’m going to give it as a birthday card I think.   Stamp and colour your animals. I used watercolours then added a bit more detail with coloured pencils over the top. Diecut them out, along with the rectangular panel from the Arrow Mat Die. Cover the back of the panel with double-sided tape and position all but one of the animals around, then stick down in the middle of your … Read More
