Art Gallery - Thank You Card using Gilding Flakes - Video Tutorial


I have another Video to share with you today where I used Gilding Flakes on a card. It's a messy business but such fun to do - I've really enjoyed playing with them.

This time I used them for the main image and also added some to the Designer Series Paper.


The stamp set used is Art Gallery. I also used the coordinating Floral Gallery dies and Fine Art Floral Designer Series Paper.


The contrast colour used for this first card is Poppy Parade.


Here is the card I created in the Video. I used Flirty Flamingo this time.

Darling Donkeys - Birthday


The Darling Donkeys stamp set is one of the products you can choose for free during the current Sale-a-Bration Promotion. This set is available for free when you place an order of £45.

I could not resist it! These donkeys are far too cute!


These cards are all super simple to create. I stamped a Donkey onto each Crumb Cake panel and added the sentiment.


The images were all stamped using Basic Grey ink and coloured using the Stampin' Blends alcohol markers. I kept mainly to Smoky Slate and Petal Pink.

I used the Basic Black Marker to go over the eyes and nose on each of the Donkeys to make them stand out a little more.


Each Crumb Cake mat is in a different colour - just to give the cards a little variety. I used Petal Pink, So Saffron and Balmy Blue.

Friends Are Like Seashells - Beautiful Embossed Card - Video Tutorial


Today's beautiful cards were inspired by a sample in the new January to June Mini Catalogue. You can find the card on page 40 and I just had to CASE it :o)

I used the Frends Are Like Seashells stamp set and the coordinating Seaside Seashells dies together with paper from the Sand & Sea Designer Series Paper pack and the Seashells 3D embossing folder.


The sample in the catalogue is pink, so I decided to create mine in blue - Seaside Spray.


The Seashell panel was die cut from Whisper White card. I then embossed it with the Seashells folder.


The colour was added using Sponge Daubers - I picked up ink directly from the ink pads. This is the card I created in the Video and I left the shells as single colours.

For the first card, above, I started with a single colour for each shell but then I added a little additional colour from the other two colours used.


The sentiment was punched out using the Everyday Label punch.


This card was created a little differently. I used another design from the same paper pack in the background, but kept it in blue.

The panel was die cut but this time I used the stamps to add the shells. I then embossed it as before. The seaweed was coloured using one of our Water Painter brushes.
