Good Morning Ladies,
I hope that you are all well and are relaxed ready for the weekend, we don't have any plans except the dreaded food shopping, which feels like you are taking a huge health risk every time you go, I do wish people would listen to the statistics and be sensible about wearing masks etc, we are grasping onto hope that masks and sanitising our hands will keep us safe.
Sue has very kindly written us a review of her Simply Cards and papercraft magazine........
Simply cards and papercraft
How to: scribe into texture paste very soon as I think it is a new idea to both of us. Watch this space!
Mens cards are the hard ones. I think we all agree but you can make any of these great ones using the digital papers shown on the left of the Well done card.
Now this is a article about calligraphy with foiling to make those cards stand out. You could certainly use a stamped or die cut sentiment if you’re like me and no good at writing freehand no matter what style! And don’t forget that you can use ordinary pva type glue (as long as it’s not too runny)with foil. You don’t have to have any special equipment. I love the simplicity of the Gappy Anniversary card. It’s one for my To Do list.
This is an easy way of making inner pop up cards. The instructions are easy to follow and there are only a few straight line cuts to be made. Yet another one for me and Sandra to try. I really like the flowers that gave been used too.
This is all about using different techniques and mediums to colour your makes including water colouring with Distress inks, Distress Oxides, heat embossing and with alcohol pens. There is something for everyone. I particularly like the square peach heat embossed card. Another one for my to do list.
The final article is an out Dustress ink die cutting which gives some beautiful effects but it’s one I haven’t tried….yet!
It simply means you colour a piece of card with Distress inks, cut a cardboard die cut as a stencil. Spritz the inked card lay the stencil on top then run it through your die cutting machine. Definitely one I will be trying If anyone wants any more details just let me knowxx
