Card Kits for Kids | Gift Idea

Any occasion, Cards

Hi Everyone! This year for Christmas, I put together card kits for my two neices who are seven and nine years old. I thought I’d share what I included in the kits in case it inspires you to share your card making hobby with the kids in your life.

You can watch the video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

Most of the supplies are from Michael’s as well as a local craft store. If you have any questions about what I included in the kit, please don’t hesitate to let me know.

Until next time,

Farewell to TAWS | Winter Snowflake Card

Any occasion, Cards, The Alley Way Stamps

Welcome! Today is a sad post because it’s my last ever for the Alley Way Stamps. In case you didn’t know, TAWS is going to close their doors in the new year. The good news for you is that their stamps are on sale for a great discount in case you’ve been eyeing any sets.

For today’s card, I wanted to create a simple and elegant winter card. As always there is a how-to video to share. You can watch the video below, or over on my YouTube channel.

Contributing to the Alley Way Stamps design team has been an outstanding experience. I have been continually inspired by the incredibly talented designers that I have been given a chance to work alongside and I am so grateful for the opportunity.

That’s it for me today. I’m going to take a few weeks off for a move and to spend time with my family over the holidays, but I will be back in the new year with plenty of new cards and videos to share. Merry Christmas everyone!

Java Great Day

Any occasion, Cards

Welcome! Today I’m sharing a bright card for this week’s Colour Me! challenge. The challenge this week is to create a project using yellow, red, and suede (brown-grey).

The bright colous of the challenge reminded me of those Pantone mugs, so I pulled out my What’s Brewing stamp set from SimonSaysStamp and got to work. You can watch me create my card in my how-to video, below, or over on my YouTube channel.

I wasn’t exactly sure how my card was going to come together, so I just kind of made it up as I went along. Lucky for me everything turned out great and I’m happy with the cheerful card I created with simple embellishments.

Make Peaches into Pumpkins

Any occasion, Cards, The Alley Way Stamps

Welcome! I hope you’re having a beautiful start to your weekend. Today I’m on the Alley Way Stamps Blog sharing a fall card that I created with summer stamps.

If you’ve been following my blog or YouTube channel, you know how much I adore the Alley Way Stamps, Tooty Fruity, stamp set. I wanted to get even more from the stamps, so I used the peach image to create some fall pumpkins.

As always, I have a how-to video to share. You can watch the video below, or on my YouTube channel.

This card was easier than pumpkin pie! If you’re like me and need to get the most from your stamps, I think a great way to do that is to incorporate them into different seasons.Oct24-ZedSquared-TootyFruityPumpkin

I coloured my pumpkins using Distress Ink. I used the same technique earlier in the summer with this exact same image but got a much different result. In can you missed, it, you can see that video on my YouTube channel.

That’s it for today. Thanks so much for dropping by.

I made a simple card using stamps from Lawn Fawn and Distress ink. I let my camera roll as I created my project. You can watch the tutorial below, or on my YouTube channel.

That’s it for today. Thanks so much for dropping by.
