Trisha’s Elegant Nature’s Textures Postcard!

Hello fellow crafters,  I love the new Nature's Textures range, especially the beautiful Embellishment Pack! And the good news is, you can still buy the collection for an amazing price over at The Craft Store! As part of the Angela Poole Design Team, I made the card below and thought I would share some steps with you today of how to create it yourself.  Firstly, I started by cutting out the two birds on the small cream card found amongst the...

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...
