Cards, Tip for today.

Cards and tip for today!

Try making your own embellishments with beads, crystals and ribbons or making your own flowers out of felt, they'll make your cards very unique.

This card I made last night for a competition named birthday and I came runner up, wow I was so exited as this was my first ever win, even though I only came runner up I was still very pleased. I seem to be getting more confident now with card making and trying things I never
would before

The second card I made tonight which I have 20 to do for hubby's work colleagues, I think I'd better get a move on lol.

Christmas Tree, Tips, Blog Candy Sites

Tip for today is: If you have no glue to stick glitter use glue dots, I did this for the card I made today as I mislaid my glue.

A card I made tonight.

I used a piece of olive green leaf paper and ran it through the cuttlebug using the Christmas tree design.
I mislaid my glue so I used glue dots on the raised design and sprinkled with white glitter adding a very pale green star to the top of the tree.
I added a strip of ribbon then attached the bow and used double-sided tape to attach the whole design to the card. This was simple, quick and I think very affective.

Tips on Wooden and Unmounted Stamps, Blog Candy Site and Christmas Card

Christmas card, blogs, tips and templates.

As you might have seen I forgot to add the christmas card oops, so here it is.

Tips on Wooden and Unmounted Stamps, Blog Candy Site and Christmas Card

Today I have some tips on wooden and unmounted stamps, a card for a friend for Christmas and a blog candy site, but first congratulation to Linda and Billy on their recent 25th anniversary and Linda's birthday yesterday, which I might add she kept very quiet humm. Pop alone and see Linda,s blog and see the great cards she has created.

Now for the tips.

Do not leave your rubber stamps in direct sun light or near a heat source as this will damage the rubber.
Do not store wood mounted stamps onto of each other as this will damage them.
Always clean stamps before putting them away cheapest way is soap and water.
A great way to store wood mounted stamps is in a fishing tackle box or similar.

Use CD cases to store unmounted stamps, stamp the images on plain white paper and slip into the cover of the sleeve for easy identification, store in a clear box or cd rack with the label printed on the side ie Christmas, birthday, flowers etc.

Another way, and the one I use is a ring binder and put the stamps on the laminated card, stamping them first onto plain white card and slide both pieces in the page protector, easy to flick through and find the stamp you want plus takes up little room.

Peel-off Tips Card and Scrapbook

Hello everyone,
I have just started this blog and I seem to have so much to post, so you will be seeing a lot in the same day, to start with I have two tips for you both using peel-off stickers.

1.Use low tack masking tape over peel off sheets to lift the wording, in order to apply it in a straight line on your card or scrapbook page.

2.Peel-off stickers make great stencils for your project’s, lay the sticker down gently onto the card or paper, but do not press too hard as this will permanently fix your sticker down. To make it less sticky just dab it on your clothes, Gently apply craft chalk and when finished carefully lift the sticker and you will be left with the image of your peel-off. This is especially useful for designing your own background papers or decorating card blanks and scrapbook pages. The same sticker can be used several times before it is no longer sticky.

Hope this is use full to you, and remember if you have any tips feel free to share with us all .
