Video : Altenew Focus Post – Extra Special!

Today at the Altenew Blog I have a focus post featuring the new Extra Special stamp set. That means three different cards using this set as well as a video which you can find linked below.

For my first card I created a stamped background with the main flower image from the Extra Special stamp set and then for the sentiment I couldn’t help myself but I just had to get out the Bold Alphabet dies (sorry Wida) and I used one of the new cardstocks, this one is the Deep Iris and isn’t it pretty!

and did you see that I had the Ink Sprays out again….. I used Soft Lilac, Lavender Fields and Frayed Leaf to create my background.

For my second card I also used the Halftone Stencil and the Artist Markers to create a more classic ‘Mother’s Day’ design.

My final card (and video) was probably the easiest and funnest, I created a subtle background for the Thank You die which I made all shimmery….  but you can watch the whole process on video if you scroll just a little further on.

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.

50th Wedding Anniversary – Publication

This card is a little different for me, it has a few more layers than usual, but it just kind of felt right when I was making it so I just went with it.  This was published by the Australian Cardmaking, Stamping & Papercraft magazine where the call was cards for a special occasion.

And…  just in case you are missing me…  I’m on holidays with my family at the moment, 4WD’ing on the World heritage listed Fraser Island, so no doubt I’ll be out on a beach in the sun somewhere for sure.
Catch you when I’m back, Hugs
