Epic Celebrations - With Springtime Foils

There is now just one more week left of our Sale-a-Bration Promotions! This is your last chance to get your hands on some of the fabulous FREE products available with qualifying purchases. Full details are in the flyers in my left-hand sidebar.

Today's card uses two of the Sale-a-Bration free products. The stamp set is Epic Celebrations and is perfect for Teens. I've used it with one of the papers from the Springtime Foils Specialty pack. These papers are glorious! So pretty and versatile .... and it's not paper, it's a great weight cardstock!

I used the Direct To Paper Technique to colour the paper. Basically you just gently drag your ink pad down the paper and repeat until it's covered. The foil in the paper acts as a resist - buff afterwards with a paper towel to remove any ink sitting on the foil and you are done :o)

The images were coloured using an Aqua Painter and the ink pads.

Video Tutorial: Masculine Card Using Waterfront

Good Morning! :o)

I have another Video Tutorial for you today. This one shows you how to create this lovely masculine card using the Waterfront stamp set. It would be a perfect card for Father's Day ..... or for a Birthday or in fact any other occasion you might have coming up :o)

The card base is Old Olive card and is ½ a standard sheet, scored and folded to create a portrait card.

The Soft Suede mat is 14.4cm x 10cm (US 5¼” x 4"). 

The inside Very Vanilla mat is also 14.4cm x 10cm (US 5¼” x 4"). 

The two pieces of Ribbon I used measure 13cm and 11cm (US 5" and 4¼”).  

You will also need a large piece of Very Vanilla for stamping and another piece of Old Olive to create your scallop circle mat.

The Waterfront stamp set is perfect for the scene building. You can create forest, lake, beach or tropical scenes using the various stamps in the set. It contains several sentiments too, but I chose one from the Guy Greetings set for this card.

The birds come from the High Tide stamp set and I thought they would make a perfect finishing touch for this card. I also used the Hardwood stamp for the background panel.
