Art Gallery - Double Gatefold Card - Video Tutorial


In today's Video I show you how to create these Double Gatefold cards. They are very easy to do and the Video takes you through each stage step by step.


I used the Art Gallery stamp set and coordinating Floral Gallery dies, together with papers from the Pattern Party Designer Series Paper pack.

This paper pack is one of our current Hostess Rewards. It contains 48 sheets of 12" x 12" paper and is available for a great price! You can find the details towards the back of the current Annual Catalogue.


The papers all have a coloured design on one side and a Black and White design on the reverse.


The small black mat was created using one of the Tasteful Labels dies.


This is my favourite of all the paper designs in the pack! I love the black and white gingham!


The colour used for the Flower heads was Crushed Curry.

I placed the sentiment differently on this one :o)


This is the card I crated in the Video. I used Cherry Cobbler ink this time.

The Flower heads were stamped and then over-stamped with a second stamp using Versamark ink. I then heat embossed with Gold powder.


The cards measure 6" x 4" closed and will fit into our standard C6 envelopes. They will not fit into C2 envelopes though unless you adjust the size to measure 5½" x 4" - start with a piece of paper measuring 12" x 5½". You would also have to adjust the size of the inside mats slightly too.

Alternatively you could create a Box to hold your card, you can find a Video HERE showing you how.

Here is the Video ...

Artistically Inked - Best Wishes


Here is my first inking of the Artistically Inked stamp set :o)

I usually keep it very simple for the first time, just really trying out the stamps.

I must admit I haven't always got on with the 'Distinktive' stamp sets in the past - they are the ones with a lot of detail etched into them. I am now finding them a lot easier to use though. This set is just so pretty that I had to give it a try :o)


I used So Saffron and Pear Pizzazz together with just a little Calypso Coral (stamped off). 

I stamped onto the centre of the Flower using the little speckle stamp and Versamark ink, then embossed it with Gold powder.

The sentiment was also embossed using Gold powder.

The Basic White background was embossed using the Painted Texture 3D folder.

Penguin Place - Snowball Fight Scene Card - Video Tutorial


In today's Video I show you how I created these super sweet cards.

I used the Penguin Place stamp set and coordinating Penguin Builder punch.


My two little Penguins are having  snowball fight! They have been busy creating their piles of snowballs ... But my blue Penguin has been a bit quicker than the other and has already thrown it's first ... and is ready to launch his second! :o)


This is such a simple card to create. The contrast colour used on this first one is Real Red.


Here is the card I created in the Video. I switched to Pacific Point as the contrast colour for this one.
