Angela Dodson’s stunning butterfly wreath!

  Hi everyone! I had so much fun creating this rainbow butterfly wreath with the brand-new Nature's Textures range by Angela Poole. One of my favourite things was to stamp onto tissue paper for the base of the wreath! Read on to see how I made it (yes there was a lot of fussy cutting and heat embossing!) But I LOVE how it turned out :) First, I selected a few of the texture stamps from the Nature's Textures Stamps &...

Sandra’s scrap-busting bookmarks!

Hello, I am Sandra and this is my first time posting on the Angela Poole blog! I made these sweet bookmarks by using the small doll head scarf from the Folksy Charm Dolls die set– it's a great scrap-buster! I was looking for ways of using up small sections of paper, especially the lovely patterns in the Folksy Charm 8in paper pack – I have a box full of leftover bits after die cutting!  I do hope you'll have a go;...

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...

Trisha’s sweet Dollface card!

Hello everyone! I hope you all love the Folksy Charm collection as much as I do...I had so much fun making the samples for the launch shows. I made this ‘Hello Dollface’ card using the new collection, and also used some of the Slot & Spin Vintage Frames dies. See below for steps on how to make this card!  First, I took a sheet of turquoise-shaded card from the Ocean Mist A4 Gradients card pack, and the largest doll die from...

Trisha’s Easter Flower Project!

Hello everyone! I hope this 'Happy Easter' Daffodil card brings some Spring sunshine to your day. I made this card using Angela Poole's Pretty Poinsettia Twist & Reveal Die Set...see below for steps on how to create your own! Using the Pretty Poinsettia die set, cut out the flower shape from yellow card. Next, take a piece of orange paper (it needs to be paper or a thin gsm so that it can be easily folded to make the trumpet...

Irene’s Floral Home Decoration!

  Hi everyone...a slightly belated Happy New Year to you all!    I don't know if you are the same as me when it comes to this time of year? Everywhere you look seems a little bit bare, now that the tree and decorations are packed away. Obviously the cold weather doesn't help either, so what better way to cheer myself up than by making a bright, floral piece of home decor using the Buds to Blooms Perfect Peonies photopolymer stamp set!...

Irene’s Christmas Keepsake!

Hi everyone! I thought I would make something a little bit different with my Beautiful Moments – Cold Days, Warm Hearts collection. We are due to have a new arrival of a baby girl in our family any time now...my cousin is about to give birth to her first child, so I thought why not make a picture celebrating her first Christmas? I have made this project on 12x12 mount board, so that afterwards it can be placed into a...

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. Not the quickest, perhaps, but I definitely think it’s worth putting the time...

Fay’s simple Autumn stamping!

  So...my first project for Angela Poole! Very exciting and a massive honour. I hope this card shows just how effective keeping things simple can be.     Firstly, I used the Magic Windows Slide & Reveal die set to cut out the main images from the Christmas Wonderland and Winter Days stamp sets. Both images were coloured using just two colours of brush pens.      I inked around the edges of the reindeer image with Distress Oxide Gathered Twigs, and once I had constructed...

Irene’s sparkling winter wishes card!

Hi everyone! Well it's that time of the year again, and like most of you I've been busy making my Christmas cards. I absolutely adore the Beautiful Moments – Cold Days, Warm Hearts stamp sets. They are beautiful to stamp with. As a crafter, I am always looking for further ways to utilise the stamps in my collection, which is why I thought I would share this card with you. Here I have used the Winter Days stamp collection. I have...
