Sweet Escape Stamper’s Challenge Publication – Paper Smooches!

Hiya, today I have a share of some cards that I made for the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine for a Stamper’s Challenge.  The stamp set and matching dies are from Paper Smooches and are called Sweet Escape.  I was surprised at how easy this set was to use and when I started out sketching ideas, they just kept coming….  that hardly ever happens!

So here they are,

Video : Cards4Men – Using Images: Creating a Shadow with Prismacolor Pencils.

Back today with another Cards4Men video and today it’s all about the shadow, a ‘By Request’ video (yes, this is for you Ange).  I’ve used Prismacolor Pencils on this card but you could apply this technique to any kind of medium…  I just find pencils are the easiest for me to blend out.  But with practice, anything is possible (well, nearly lol.)  Remember, after all, it’s just paper!

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

I had so much fun colouring this character, I’ve got a new set of Polychromos pencils, but for some reason headed to my Prismas again.  I know that I am just going to have to venture there soon…

…it’s just so much is happening around here, I’m moving my room around, I have a new computer, with a new computer program, new office 365 as well as a new video editing program, so needless to say, BIG learning curves happening here on the coast, and with lots of cards to make (wish me luck)!

Video : Cartoon Colouring!

We all agree that masculine cards can be difficult to make, but when it’s for an older teen then it becomes almost impossible lol.  Today I thought I would share a video making a card that should make any young man smile.

Video : Quick & Easy Masculine Designs!

Oh my, I couldn’t believe that my stash of masculine cards is pretty much gone, I think there has been way too much Christmas card making going on round here, so I had to fix it and real quick as I have a few December birthdays to sort.  So I decided to film as I created so you can watch the process and learn some ‘boy’ design card tips lol.
