Video : Cards 4 Men Paper Piecing Images!

Back today with the next installment in my Cards 4 Men series and I gotta say that when I make masculine cards I don’t usually tend towards paper piecing as a technique.  But today I thought I would share just how you can make this work on a guys card.

You can see my video here or Watch it at Youtube.

Today’s technique for Scrapbook Boutique is a simple one, embossing with dies.  And what better die to choose than a Wonky stitched one from MFT!  I decided to film as I created so you can watch the process.

Video : Gelato Background by Request!

Hiya, today I’m back by request as I was asked ‘how’ I created this Gelato background here.  It was heaps of fun to do and not ‘too messy’ for my precious hands.  Not sure how it happened but the front panel ended up taking over, although I do still like that the texture and colour that shows around the edge.

I wanted to make a card for my parents 50th wedding anniversary and I knew my mother would adore this Summer Love image from Penny Black, therefore the happy couple have my Mum’s red hair and my Dad’s dark brown…   although it hasn’t been that for a long time lol.   They are both amazing people and I am so lucky to have them in my life, BIG hugs and congrats to you both x.

Hello Gorgeous with No Fuss!

A quick publication share today (I thought that I had already posted this card but can’t find it… or the card post I pre wrote, so I am not sure what is going on)…. Anyhoo, my card today is all about No Fuss Copic colouring, so I didn’t blend any of the colours and decided to leave just a small highlight by not colouring all the way to the edges.  I made this for the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine.  BTW the grey’s do look similar IRL, they just didn’t photograph so well, or was it, I didn’t photograph them so well…  Oh, well.

Video : Altenew Peony Bouquet.

We all approach stamping differently and sometimes you just gotta work out what is easiest for you.  And that’s why I thought I would share with you today how I stamp out the layered flowers from Altenew’s Peony Bouquet set.  These flowers are so versatile, with the outline, without the outline, with the layers or without the layers….  I think you get what I’m trying to say.

Today I have two videos to share, the first shows how I stamp out and die cut the images and you can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

And my second video is all about putting the card together and you can see that video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

Love Life!

When I saw these new ladies at Penny Black I just knew they had to come stay with me, they look like they are having so much fun!  I decided to do some highlight stamping and initially I was only going to colour her dress…  but I couldn’t help myself, next it was the hat, then the shoes, then her skin….  and by then, why not, colour the scarf lol.
