Beautiful floral pink slimline card w/video by Jeni

Welcome to the first card tutorial for 2021. Has this year started better than how 2020 finished? Is it too soon to tell?

I have already shared two other video tutorials (which you can see here and here) using the Beautiful Day Floral stamp by Catherine Pooler.   … Read More

Hey crafty people! It’s Tasha here, back for another Saturday inspiration drop and this week I wanna talk last minute Christmas Cards!   If you’re anything like me, you get this close to Christmas and realise that you don’t have nearly enough cards and so you gotta have a hit of a creating in bulk session.   One of my favourite ways to do this is by choosing a full panel stamp, like the Cozy Christmas one from Pinkfresh, and … Read More

Folkstar Embossed slimline card w/video by Jeni

Hi, I have two slimline cards using the slimline Folkstar coverplate die by Catherine Pooler. I actually have four more cards using this die but decided to split them up so the video tutorial wouldn’t be as long. The first two cards use Frost embossing powder by Brutus Monroe.

Christmas watercolouring cards on textured card by Jeni

  Hi, how are getting on with your Christmas card making? I seem to be taking my time and hope I don’t have to rush to get enough made.  I wanted to do some loose watercolouring over heat embossing and chose to use a heavy watercolour card. Both my stamped panels are 3.5 x 5.5″ and made from Canson XL watercolour card.   The Caroling Sentiments stamp set by Catherine Pooler has shaped sentiment stamps.  I chose this stamp set … Read More

Loose watercolouring with Aqua Pigments w/Video by Jeni
