Zoe’s super stencil technique!

Hi everyone. I just love Angela's stencil designs, and have made this card using a clever embossing technique. Here's a short how-to so you can create a unique and striking 3D effect using your Folksy Charm collection! First, I created an 8 inch card base using one piece of A3 card. You could use two pieces of A4 card joined together if you prefer. I also cut a piece of coordinating card to 7.75 inches square to layer over the card...

Creativation 2020 – craft secrets revealed!

We're having a fantastic time at Creativation and it's so great to meet other crafters who love paper crafts as much as we do! I wanted to create some makes for our stand that were bright and bold to reflect how positive we feel about 2020. I went with a colour palette that scared me a little at first (I think we all tend to have favourite crafting colour combos that feel safe!). Well I was definitely out of that...

Our photopolymer stamp layers are made with the added bonus of a little notch which marks the top of the stamp colour layer – so no more rotating a stamp around and around to see which way up it goes! I wanted to share with you how the colour...

Perfect Peonies!

Perfect Peonies is the much anticipated stamp set released with our new Buds to Blooms collection. It's a bumper A4 photopolymer stamp set and it is, in fact, so full of stamps that we had to design the packaging on one side only as it was the only way we could display ALL of those gorgeous high quality stamps! It felt self-indulgent drawing the artwork for this stamp set as I enjoyed it so much! For me, what makes the...

Ruth’s Sparkling Shaker Card!

I love to make interactive cards, and this is one to bring sparkle to any lucky recipient’s mantelpiece this festive season. Plus with the gorgeous Beautiful Moments – Cold Days, Warm Hearts Winter Days stamp set, it was a dream to make. If you’ve never made a shaker card before, you might think that it can be a bit tricky. But actually the process is very simple.
