Heat Embossing over Embossing | Getting back my crafty mojo

Any occasion, Cards

Hi Everyone! I’m still getting setup in my new house and I’ve been struggling to find my crafty mojo with so much happening in my life these days. I finally forced myself to sit down and create a card, start to finish, to try to get my mojo flowing.

I have a tutorial video to share. You can watch it below, or over on my YouTube channel.

When I struggle with crafty inspiration, I usually try one of two things: consult some card sketches, or create a card from start to finish. I find that just getting started is often the hardest part, so these tricks really seem to help me. If you’re looking for sketches you can try these two that I really love: My Favorite Things Blueprints Sketches, and CAS(E) this Sketch Challenge Blog.

Concord & 9th | One Layer Card

Any occasion, Cards

Hi friends! I hope spring has sprung where you live, because where I live, right on Georgian Bay, most of our snow has melted and we had quite a few days above zero this week. It’s hard not to have a huge smile on my face while the sun is shinning and I’m out with my pups, Zip and Zoë (a.k.a. Zed²).

For today’s card share, I created a simple one-layer card. I’ve been dying to use my new Tree Ring Background stamp from Concord and 9th, so I just had to make a card that truly showcased how lovely it is.

I have a how-to video to share. You can watch it below, or over on my YouTube channel.

I kept this card very simple, to let the detail of the background stamp shine. Of course I had to add little razzle dazzle, so I did that with a few Sparkling Clear sequins (the “little things”), and some clear Wink of Stella for good measure.
