Total eclipse of the card!

You may have seen the cards that have the eclipse technique, or maybe not.  I am not sure where it came from initially, but the time has come to give it a go.

First I stamped my image (beautiful you) and then coloured it in.  Next, using the alphabet dies, I die cut ‘birthday’ over the stamped image and trimmed this down to the size I wanted. (This is where I discovered I lost my dot for my “i”).

For the next step, for the card, I trimmed down a piece of coffee break dsp and stuck this to my card front.  Taking the die cut piece – being careful not to lose any of the die cuts – I put a piece of black cardstock behind the spaces. Then I stuck this onto the card front.

The next bit is a bit fiddly, but worth it.  Taking the die cut letters, I put some foam pads on and then replaced them in their respective spaces.

I gave the eclipse treatment to the following card.  This one I simply die cut the cake from the dsp and backed it with some black cardstock.

I hope you feel inspired to give it a go.  The effect is worth it.

Don’t forget to check out the October promotions.  Free paper up for grabs for the whole of October and for world card making day 15% off selected items from 1-10 October.

Enjoy!

Have some fun with the embossing paste

Have you seen that we now have embossing paste in the catalogue.  This is a great medium for adding some texture to your projects.  You can even add some ink into the paste to give it a splash of colour before you start creating.

You can create fabulous backgrounds when you use the paste with one of our stencils (stencils are 6×6″).

To learn more about our embossing paste and how versatile this product is, grab a cuppa and watch Brandi tell (and show) you more.

Halloween junkies!

Are you like me and like the end of October?  I put it down to my Celtic roots, yes, I did my DNA with Ancestry.com!  I am more of the Samhain,  and it’s a celebration of the end of the harvest season and the beginning of winter, and that it is the transition between the seasons which is a bridge to the world of the dead.  As it is nowadays, it is an evening of spooky fun.  But, I like to think that it is a time for those who have gone before to ‘pop in’.

For those that celebrate the event, we have an array of products to enjoy the festivities.  I had to get the cat punch, not just for Halloween mind you.  See the array of supplies here.

It was a no brainer for me though, and I indulged in the bundle, I love the cat stamp, can you see the face?  This is great for punching the cat out onto black paper and stamping the face with some white ink.  A tip – grab some of the ink spots and ink with your favourite colours if you don’t want the big pads, also ideal for taking to crafting days.

Christmas in September

Here is a card that I made with some of the new products launched in the autumn/winter catalogue.  For my preorder, I had ordered the merry music papers, the snowflake sentiments bundle, cheers to the year stamps and year of cheer washi tape (slightly addicted to washi tape, so a must have), and some other products fell into the basket.

 

For this card, I have used the merry music paper to create a background.  This paper is great as you can sing along while you are crafting!  The green stripe, this is a scrap that I had from the coffee break papers.  I stamped the ‘circle’ with a stamp from the cheers to the year set.  The snowflake, this was cut with a die from the swirly snowflakes thinlits set, the die is a border die and I snipped out the snowflake.  The trim is the very vanilla lace trim. The swirl is cut from a die in the same set in our lovely gold paper.  Then it was simply a case of layering up.
