WCMD Celebration Day 3: Cute and Cuddly

October 3, 2019

Did you know that World Card Making Day is coming up on October 5th? Well, why limit the fun to just one week? We are celebrating, along with the fab folks at Scrapbook.com, from October 1st through the 7th with tutorials, videos, and top tips here on our blog. Oh, and did we mention GIVEAWAYS??? Don’t miss your chance to win Penny Black stamps and dies at the end of this post!

Birgit Edblom is with us today and she’s brought with her all things cute and cuddly!

For her first card, Birgit has featured the adorable teddy bears from our transparent set, 30-615 Togetherness, and exact match die cut set, 51-580 Togetherness Cut Out.

She layered these beary besties onto an inked background that was also stamped with our cling stamp, 40-708 Fragile Beauty. To give her card a finished look, and to give those cuddly bears the perfect place to sit, she framed her card with our Creative Die set, 51-565 Snowflake Frames. She added the look of falling snow by watering down white acrylic paint and splattering it onto her scene using a paintbrush.

For Birgit’s next card, the flakes are still flying, this time onto the adorable hedgie from our transparent set, 30-609 Cozy Critters. (Exact match die available- 51-576 Cozy Critters Cut Out)

Birgit used watercolors to paint her background and hedgie. She tucked her hedgie into a pair of hand trimmed snowbanks. To add extra life to her scene, she stamped our cling stamp, 40-701 Emerald Boughs, in the background. And once again, she splattered watered down white acrylic paint to give the look of falling snow to her scene.

WCMD Celebration Day 2: Acorns, Animals, and Photo Tutorial!

October 2, 2019

Did you know that World Card Making Day is coming up on October 5th? Well, why limit the fun to just one week? We are celebrating, along with the fab folks at Scrapbook.com, from October 1st through the 7th with tutorials, videos, and top tips here on our blog. Oh, and did we mention GIVEAWAYS???

Peet Roeven joins us today with fabulous fall inspiration!

To begin, Peet stamped the fox and acorns from our transparent set, 30-599 Acorns & Animals, onto watercolor paper. She colored the images with watercolor pencils and then blended the coloring with a waterbrush. Finally, she cut out the images.

Next, Peet die cut a frame from our Creative Die set, 51-573 Stitched Loops, using white cardstock. It looks great when layered with designer paper.

Peet then stamped the sentiment from our transparent set, 30-600 Autumn Bliss. She colored it with watercolor pencils and added a few splatters for an artsy look.

To finish things off, Peet adhered all of her layers together, using foam adhesive to add extra dimension. She also embellished with a few gems and added a touch of gold cardstock as one of her layers.

Foxy and fantastic!
