VIDEO | Beginner Friendly Cards

 

Hej and Welcome!
It's Martina here with a really fun and easy cardmaking process that gives you lots of opportunities and leaves you with more than one card after finishing!

If you'd like you can also watch the Process Video on the WOW! Youtube Channel.


For my card, I have been using the "Spring Showers" Die by A Pocket Full of Happiness.
But you could use any Background or other Dies or even cut stripes from your heat embossed pannels if you're not a die cutter.

I have been preparing four pieces of cardstock which are slightly bigger than the die, this will make things easier when it comes to die cutting.
Before I started with the process, I have been re-applying some ink to my Embossing Pad using the Freestyle Tool. Its so much easier to cover big surfaces when the Ink Pad is well saturated.


The Process for these cards is super easy:
Take a piece of Cardstock and cover it with the Ultra Slow Drying Embossing Ink.
Put a piece of paper under the Cardstock and cover the whole (inked) Cardstock with Embossing Powder.
Tap the excess powder off and funnel the leftover Powder back in the Jar.
Heat Emboss the Embossing Powder.
Die Cut the embossed Cardstock and keep all the fall out pieces ready.

Repeat the whole process with all perpared Cardstock pieses and you're ready to create!

My Background Die already had the spots for the flowers ready so I have simply placed them back into their spots.

When you're using a punch or scissors for your design, you'll have lots of options to create some super individual cards with all the pieces you get from these heat embossed pieces.

I hope you liked this idea and feel encouraged and inspired to get creative!

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a great day!

VIDEO | Slimline Cards Using Your Leftovers

Create slimline cards with your leftovers and zhoosh them up with glitter embossing powder! Welcome friends, Amber here with that ever-present struggle between too simple vs. overdone. 



All the details to create slimline cards with your leftovers and spice them up with glitter embossing powder are in this cardmaking video. Watch here or in HD on YouTube. While you're there we'd love it if you like, subscribe, and share it with your crafty friends.



Keeping It Simple

Although I love clean and simple cards, I typically can't pull them off. Often I keep adding more until it's layered, embellished, and overdone. This time I was determined to use a leftover background, add a bit of glitter embossing, and sentiment, and call it done.

This background is a piece of deli paper that I used to clean off my brayer during a gel press printing session. I love the blues and greens and thought it would be great for a minimalist slimline card. 

But, after it's all said and done I really think it could have used a white die-cut element or something. It just seems unfinished to me. What do you think?

Overdoing It

That being said, I think I chose the wrong background to embellish. This is the card I should have kept simple, but no, I kept adding to it.


The background is another piece of brayered deli paper that almost looked like strips of washi tape. I love it when I embossed In The Park Embossing Powder with the Fern Background stamp down the right side of the card.

Adding it to the left side was a bit too much though. I would have been happier to leave this card simple and add more to the first card. Do you guys struggle with this or is it just me??

Thanks for joining me today and sharing in my struggle! I'll see you soon with more inspiration.

You look FABULOUS DARLING ~ Mixed Media Journal Page



Today was one of those lovely sunny afternoons that you just want to play. 
Don't you just LOVE those days?




I gathered just a few supplies and let my creative spirit move me. 

A little stamp action here, 
a layer of gold lustre embossing there, 
a light rain sprinkle of water-colour paints here.

Sometimes when you CREATE it can feel like MAGIC!

It soothes you,
lifts your spirit, 
and gives you that warm hug you needed.

Today, I encourage you to create something new.
Just gather a few supplies that are silently calling out to you.
Don't follow your regular craft/art routine.

Let yourself JUST BE in the moment.
Maybe you want to swipe a brush stroke of magenta across your paper, 
spritz it with some water, 
let it try.

Add a few random stamps or words across it's top, 
emboss it with whichever embossing powder your hand lands on first.

Yes, the art piece may end up looking like rubbish, 
or it may bring you joy.

It doesn't matter what the piece looks like in the end, 
as I can guarantee you one thing...
I am sure that you learned something new.
Something that you want to try again and explore further.

Something that may take you on a new creative journey.

Do that and remember that art like life is more about the journey that the finish line.

Have a fabulous day!







Thank you for joining me today.
Nicci
