Video : Remember Paper Piecing?

Back with an oldie but a goodie, it’s time to paper piece and this little hippo from Gerda Steiner, a newly added stamp line at Scrapbook Boutique (YaY!) couldn’t resist a Lawn Fawn Plaid Rainbow super hero outfit…   or was it me that couldn’t resist lol, just let me know if you think this is cruelty to animals, or do you think he looks happy in his little outfit?  Anyhow, there is a video of the process

You can see it here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

Video : Altenew May 2017 Release Blog Hop & Giveaway!

Altenew - Best Bud - Watercolor Frames - Lostinpaper (card) 2 copy

Altenew have done it again, today they are not only releasing some fabulous new stamp sets and dies but now they have their very own luxurious embossing powders!   We are all hopping along to celebrate and you should have arrived here from AMY’S fabulous blog.  I couldn’t stop making cards with this release, so scroll down to see them and the video that I have made showcasing the fab new Layered Plaid Cover Dies as well as to find out how you can WIN!

To created my Plaid background I used Moonrock, Dark Gray and the blue cardstock from the New Day Card Kit, then I added a Modern Cat (coloured like the lilac burmese that we used to have….  and she did manage to sneak a photo into the video today).

and I used the Pure White Embossing Powder for the first time and am totally impressed with the ‘brightness’ of the white, tick!

Next I created a gift card set using the mini stamp sets: Latte, Strawberry and Ice Cream.

This time I heat embossed the images with the beautiful Golden Peach embossing powder on some Spicy Yogurt cardstock and added a touch of colour with some Prismacolor Pencils.

I also used the new Watercolor Frames stamp set to emboss a frame around each of the images.

My final card was heaps of fun and came together very easily.  To create the background I stamped a panel with one of the Watercolor Frames.

Two of the flowers from Best Buds were stamped directly onto the card front and the final one coloured with Copics, fussy cut and popped up on the front.  One of the best things about this set is that if you want, you can also get the layering set separately if you prefer to add colour with stamp layering.

Lostinpaper - Penny Black - Furry Hugs - Awesome (card video) 1

Today I have a very clean and simple design to share.  I used one of the cute Penny Black hedgehogs to sit on top of a sentiment that was discarded from a previous card….   and I didn’t want to put it aside because you already know that I would never use it, so while I’m motivated I’m using it!

Today I am back to Colour with ‘U’ and it’s all about watercolouring with a ‘coloured’ image.  My ‘go to’ stamping colour for outlines is black and today I thought I would have some fun changing it up a little.   I have filmed the card today and

These ballerinas are so sweet, and I know it’s a bit cliche, but I just had to colour them in pink (just to get it out of my system…   next time I’ll try different colours, I promise)
