Tuesday Tutorials - Embossing with Dies

Tuesday, March 20, 2018

I have shifted my weekly Facebook Live videos to be on a Tuesday evening at 7.30pm Melbourne time.  If you'd like to join me live and have the chance to win my weekly door prize, be sure to have "liked" my page (click here).

This week I explained how to emboss cardstock using Framelits and made up this card.

Take a look at the video to see how I did it:

You need to get a rubber mat for this.  As Stampin' Up! don't stock them I purchased mine from Craft Online but you can get them from a number of different places.  (Please note, I have a Cuttlebug not a Big Shot so the link is for a Cuttlebug compatible rubber mat.)

Embossing with dies is a very easy and super effective way to enhance your card design.  Why not try it yourself and send me photos of your projects!  I love seeing what other people get up to, especially if they have been inspired by one of my tutorials.

Here's everything you need to make this project yourself.

With Easter just around the corner what else could I make but little Easter boxes for you?  These little cuties hold about four mini solid eggs and make the most adorable gifts.

Want to make some yourself?  Tune into my Facebook Live video this coming Tuesday at 7.30pm AEDT and I'll go through all the steps for you.  Make sure you have "liked" my Facebook page (click here) so that you will get a notification that I'm live.  I always have prizes to give away to people who watch live, and sometimes for those who catch up afterwards (because I know life's busy and people are in different time zones).

(Edited to give you link to the video on YouTube:

If you'd like to make one up with me while I'm live grab the products listed below and cut your cardstock of choice (you don't have to use the Foils and Frenzies Specialty DSP as I have) at 8.5" x 5".  The rest we can do together.

Thanks for Just Adding Colour

Tuesday, March 13, 2018

You'll have noticed from my last post that I'm in the middle of a colouring-in phase.  My last Sunday Stampin' Sessions card showcases the Just Add Colour Specialty Designer Series Paper.  If you haven't got a pack of this stuff yet, GET SOME NOW!!!  You will LOVE it!

I showed you two designs using the feathers patterned paper and Smoky Slate cardstock.  Do you have a favourite?

I love the feathers bringing a little colour up one side of the card on this one.

The Rich Razzleberry and Pool Party are just the perfect match against the Smoky Slate background.

I equally love this card which make the feathers the central focus.

You could use any of our colouring tools on this paper.  For these cards I got out my Blends and had fun deciding what to highlight on each of the different feather designs.

Now watch the video below to see how I put together the bottom card.

Crazy Crafters Blog Hop with Janet Wakeland

Sunday, March 11, 2018

Blog Hopping is one of my favourite aspects of crafting.  I love getting together with a group of stampers to work from the same starting point and seeing all the different variations we come up with.  Today the Cray Crafters are CASEin (Copy And Selectively Edit) international Stampin' Up! demonstrator Janet Wakeland.  We each pick one of her designs to CASE.  Here's the one I've chosen:

And here is my design:

I have used the Just Add Colour Designer Series Paper which is so much fun becuase you get to colour it in yourself!  Here's a look at the paper as it comes in the pack:

And look how it turns out when you add a bit of colour (in my case, using the Blends):

I also sponged the edges in Crumb Cake and very lightly over the whole piece of paper just to soften the Whisper White.

This was so much fun to do!  I hope you give it a go.  Now head on over to all the other blogs to take a look at what my fellow teammates came up with.

Here's everything you need to make this card yourself.
