Fuzzy Lemon Fancy Heart :D


A pair of lovely bright cards using this gorgeous new Fancy Heart die from the Fuzzy Lemon range exclusive to CraftStash :D :D :D This stunning die will be available to buy tomorrow, and it is such a gorgeous versatile die too :D I love how you can put it behind a frame and completely change the effect!! It turns and feminine heart shape into a more masculine shape :D :D :D In this video I cut the die from Funky Foam, and used it as a stamp :D On the portrait card, I stamped in water to give a ghosting effect on the ink sprayed background, and on the square card, I stamped in multiple colours of Gilding Polish to give a nice subtle shimmery pattern to the background :D Hope you liked the video!! Plus scroll down a bit further, and there's an extra video I did a while ago too :D :D :D

A cute 'Meow You Doin'?' card I made for one of the lovely editors I work with, Natalie :D I just got this gorgeous Meow You Doin' stamp set from Lawn Fawn, and I knew she had a couple of cute kitties, so I just had to colour them like hers, and make a card for her :D I also used lots of Tonic products to create my background and focal strip, and I even used my wonderful Nuvo Creative pens to colour in the cute kitties, building up the dark tones using the selection of grey tones in the range :D :D :D Hope you liked today's Blog Tonic card and video :D

Spellbinders You Are So Sweet :D


A sweet thank you card using the quirky I'll Have a Slice Spellbinders die set for the focal elements, along with the Ornamental Doily cut from vellum, and the Untamed Scrolls Card Creator debossed into the card and highlighted with some Cosmic Shimmer Gilding Polish :D As soon as I got this gorgeous Untamed Scrolls background die, I knew I wanted to try this technique :D I started by adding some colour to my white card using Lush Pink Cosmic Shimmer ink spray mist, then once dry I die cut this with the largest die in the A2 Matting Basics B die set, then I used my rubber mat and Blue embossing plate, and debossed the background die into my card :D To pick out the gorgeous pattern, I used some Lush Pink Cosmic Shimmer Gilding polish along with the applicator supplied to brush over the surface and catch the raised areas :D I then continued to layer up the other elements of my card, and finished it off with a custom DYMO label sentiment :D :D :D Hope you liked today's card!! It was actually a thank you for one of my crafty friends, Christina :D :D :D
