Holy Family Christmas Bauble

Friday, December 02, 2016

I've taken the plunge and used my silver embossing powder.  It has sat gathering dust in my cupboard for ages before I found the inspiration to use it on this card for the little image of the Holy Family. 
Have you used it?  What do you use it for most?  Sentiments or images like I have here?


Heat embossing isn't as hard as you might think.  Have you tried it?  I'm going to be doing some tutorials over the summer to help people with some techniques.  Drop me a line and let me know if there's anything else you'd like me to make a tutorial on.

Celebration

Let's Celebrate Stripes

Tuesday, November 29, 2016

There are many occasions to celebrate in life and sometimes you need a card that just embraces that.  This one's for a friend of mine who took a radical change of direction in life and has just completed university studies, for the second time!  That's certainly cause for celebration.


This card isn't difficult but it is fiddly.  Cut all your strips of cardstock into 1/4" pieces and make the first piece you stick down the white piece which runs down the middle-ish area that starts off the change in direction.  Stick all these onto a piece of standard Whisper White, the trim off the excess and stick that down on another piece of Whisper White with a slight border.  Easy!

CASED from my love grannie upline, Kylie Bertucci.  Thanks Kylie!
