Secret Garden Bendi Fold

I wanted a special thank you card for a friend. Splitcoaststampers provides many wonderful tutorials, so I used their 'Bendi Fold' technique. My sister had previously made one and it looked like fun. I used Baked Brown Sugar for the base card and stamped it with the new Hardwood background stamp. The images from Secret… Continue reading Secret Garden Bendi Fold

White on White with a Sketch

Back again with another CAS card using the white on white layer challenge. This time I have combined it with this week's Sketch Challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The sketch called for a flourish down the left hand side, so I used my Scribbles Swirls Sizzlit and cut out 2 of them in Wild Wasabi. I then… Continue reading White on White with a Sketch

Stamping Nostalgia

The technique challenge on Splitcoaststampers today is nostalgia. That is, go back to basics and don't use any 'mod-cons' such as embossing, die cuts, pearls, sewing, etc. I went back to a sketch that was one of my favourites when I first started stamping, dug out some eyelets [not SU] which were all the go… Continue reading Stamping Nostalgia

Gift Card Holder

Tonight's class at Crafter's Anonymous was to make a cute gift card holder. I used Soft Suede as the base card stock, with Attic Boutique DSP. A piece of Whisper White was cut with the Labels Framelits and then embossed with the Oval from the Designer Frames EF set. The Pool Party marker was used… Continue reading Gift Card Holder
