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...

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...

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...

5-minute stamping challenge!

I love thinking of different ways to use craft products. Probably because I'm a thrifty crafter at heart!  I'm thoroughly enjoying using our two Beautiful Moments - Cold Days, Warm Hearts stamp sets and, if you managed to see our show on HOCHANDA, you'll see that I got a bit carried away making samples!  One of those samples was originally just an experiment, as I wanted to try stamping directly on to wood and I thought that brown ink would look nice ....
