A happy hello fellow crafters! On Saturday it was World Card Making day (yes, that is actually a real thing🙂 )! However, which numpty thought there were 31 days in September because she got the rhyme wrong? That would be me! So I didn’t have a blog post prepared to go with the Instagram post. Anyway! I… Continue reading Creating a Background with Felt Tip Pens

Hello, This past weekend, my best friend, who recently got engaged, had a party to celebrate with her fiancée. So, of course, I took the opportunity to make them another card😉 I posted the video of this card being created last Saturday, however, didn’t get a chance to write this post before leaving for the party. I… Continue reading Video: Creating a Scene by Drawing a Few Lines
Hello!

As always, this challenge will run for, almost,… Continue reading Professor Bear Welcoming you Back to School
Today, I have another video for you! Whenever I thought about using glitter, I always thought of the cards where there is a lot and, as a person who isn’t very “into” glitter, I kind of steered clear. However, after watching a video about using glitter on cards from Julia Altermann about a month ago, I realised that glitter, in the right place and amount, could look quite subtle and pretty.
I’ve also learned that by using glossy accents to adhere the glitter, it grabs onto the glitter and once the excess is brushed away, the rest doesn’t budge as glossy accents is such a strong glue. And, because it dries 3D, along with the glitter, it helps add a little dimension to the card.
I’ll be entering this card into the following challenges: Addicted To Stamps “CAS“, Sasayaki Glitter “CAS“, Marvelous Magnolia “Flowers“, and Aurora Wings Challenge “Tic-Tac-Toe” [Thread, Yarn or String – Flowers – Sentiment].
Thanks for reading and I hope you’ll enjoy the video🙂
