Video : Cards 4 Men – Inktense Doggie Treat!

Hiya, today I have a fun card to share in my Cards 4 Men series.  I love the finished look of this card but I realized one thing today, I’m not real good at waiting for ink to dry….   I know, I know, take a breath and just wait!

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

Video : Stamping a Sentiment Background with Altenew!

I have a quick and easy card to share at the Altenew Blog today.  I decided it would be fun to create my own sentiment background using almost a rainbow of colours, I thought this would make a fun kids or teen card.

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

I stamped out the Congrats sentiments with the Altenew Crisp Dye Inks and then coloured some of the air benders using the Altenew Artist Markers.  I am loving the bright cheery feel!

Video: Gerda Steiner Go Wild Party Animals!

Lostinpaper - Gerda Steiner - Party Animals (card video) 1

I had so much fun stacking the Gerda Steiner Designs Party Animals and the Go Wild stamp sets that I made two……  YES, the Go Wild set has been released and it’s uber cute!

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

Lostinpaper - Gerda Steiner - Party Animals (card video) 1

The sentiment came from the Moody Unicorns stamp set.

My second card was pretty much the same layout but I changed it up by repeating the same animal for each tier instead.  I also thought it would be fun to ‘spatter’ the background and this time I used a sentiment from the sweet little Hedgehog with Sign mini stamp set.

Have a great and crafty day!

In my usual style for a man’s card today, I kept it bright, clean and simple…

Altenew - Best Dad - Inline Alpha Die - Lostinpaper (card video) 1 copy

This fab cup and sentiment is from the Best Dad Stamp set and I thought that some of Altenew’s Birch Wood would look great with the Inline Alpha die cut words, and give it that masculine look!

I decided to film as I created today,

Video : Altenew Aster Build-A-Flower Release!

Altenew - Aster Build -A-Flower - Thinking of You - Reflection Scrapbook Collection - New Day Card Kit (card video) 1 copy

Isn’t this exciting Altenew have a special release of new Build-A-Flower Set on the 15th of every month, each set offers a 6×8 stamp set and a coordinating die so you can easily create your projects (it is only available as a set, not as individual products).  This month we are introducing Aster Build-A-Flower, and isn’t it another beauty!

But, instead of Building-A-Flower today I thought it would be fun to share how versatile these layering stamps can be and I decided to Build-A-Background….

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

I use the alphas and butterfly from the Reflection Scrapbook Collection and that sweet little heart came from the New Day Card Kit.

So…  In keeping with the party atmosphere I thought it would be fun to create a fun set of cards using some of the mini stamp sets from Altenew, and these Fair themed images seemed perfect!

Altenew - Carousel - Ferris Wheel - Celebrate - Lostinpaper (card) 1 copy

I used the Splash of Color set to create a bright background for the Carousel and Ferris Wheel images.

The background here was ink blended through the Halftone Stencil and the sentiment was die cut with the Inline Alpha die set.
