Video : Colour with ‘U’ – Penny Black Copic Hedgehog!

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!

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

This week is MASSIVE, it’s Altenew’s 3rd Anniversary and you already know that they know how to celebrate in style as well as give you the opportunity to WIN too, but more about that later.

Today it’s time for the Card Design Team to hop and we are so lucky to be joined by some incredibly talented papercrafters, you should have arrived here from Jennifer McGuires blog, and she never fails to inspire! (scroll down for the full hop list)

Here are some of my Altenew faves….

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!

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.

Here I stamped a Carousel background and heat embossed the sentiment from the Celebrate Stamp Set.

Video : It’s time for ‘Action’…. Wobbles!

When I saw the smaller sized Action Wobbles I just knew I ‘had to have‘ them, and now my world is complete lol.  They are seriously the perfect size…  and for a person who makes very few ‘interactive’ cards, I’m hooked!  I decided to film as I created so you can watch the process.

Video : Colour with ‘U’ – Reverse Confetti Unicorn Wishes!

I just had to have a Unicorn stamp and there are actually a few on my ‘wish’ list, but this one made it into my hot little hands first and for some reason it had to be a shaker and have sparkle!

In my video today I share just how easy it can be to blend Copic colours that are from different colour families.

Video : 2016 Same but Different Same but Different Christmas Card Series – No.1 – Wreaths (Six Cards)!

I’m so excited to be back this year with my Same but Different Christmas Card Series.  If you were here last year then you know that this series can contain many different ideas / themes / styles…  well, almost as long as it is the ‘Same but Different’ .

Today I thought I would kick things off with a theme, so lots of different products and every card unique but all with a similar theme and colour palette, all to make creating so much quicker and easier.

Video : Golden Poinsettia – Penny Black

One of the most beautiful ‘flowers’ ever and so perfect on a Christmas card, especially in ‘gold’.  Our Poinsettias have just finished flowering as we are now heading into Spring / Summer here, but they do add such a brightness to the garden, actually I have a memory that they are not flowers but that they are coloured leaves?  Do you know, or did I dream that?  Oh, and I also decided to film as I coloured.
