A little bit of 'Love & Affection'

I love this Technique!

Technique - Heat Embossing On Foil
  • Wrap a piece of card stock with Aluminium Foil (just normal foil you buy from the supermarket). Leave any crease marks in because they add depth on the next step.
  • Swipe Black StazOn ink pad over the foil piece and on the edges.
  • Apply Versamark Ink to one side of the Embossing Folder by stamping the pad directly onto the embossing folder.
  • Place the foil covered card stock piece face down on the Versamark side of the Embossing Folder. Close the Folder and run the whole thing through the Big Shot. 
  • Remove the piece from the folder, pour Copper Embossing Powder over it and heat set with a heat tool.
  • Sponge Black StazOn over different areas to highlight.

A Little Pop of Paradise

I love this stamp set 'Pop of Paradise' and it's co-ordinating Suite 'Pop of Pink.' It's just bright, beautiful and fun!

Every week I set a challenge for my Team Members. I post a card I've made and they have to Case it. One of my Team members asked if we would do a challenge on a card sketch she'd found, so naturally we said Yes!
Here's the Sketch.
And here's my Card.

Pop of Paradise Suit - It's really gorgeous!


My Style Info
  • Everything I've used on my card today is from the 'Pop of Pink Suite' page 83 &84 of Current Annual Catalogue.
  • I gold embossed the Leaf and Hello for some extra pizzazz!.
  • I used Melon Mambo Ink for the Flamingo - How cute is he, or she! - and fussy cut with my Paper Snips.
  • I don't know if you can see them in the photo, but I finished off with Brights Enamel Shapes.

Floral Phrases - Curtian & Drapery Fold Cards

I have been having the worst computer problems and it's a new computer! So my apologies for not having these cards up sooner as I said I would but the computer says 'No!'

Here are the 3 Cards we made in my last Card Making Class. I love this Technique - 'Curtain Folds' 

This first card is a Double Curtain Fold. This is my favourite.

This next one is a Single Curtain Fold.


This last one is a Single Curtain Fold too, but I made it smaller so it would only cover half of the card.

Instructions for the above Single Curtain Fold Card.
  • Curtain Fold Paper Piece is 10" x 3"
  • Put the 10" edge into the Simply Scored Scoring Tool so as it runs across the top of the board. (You can use the scorer on your trimmer but I did find it much easier on the Simply Scored Tool).
  • Score at 2", 3", 5", 6", 8" & 9"
  • Measure down 1" from the top right hand corner and make a mark.

  • With a ruler, draw a line from the mark to the bottom left hand corner.
  • Cut on the line you just made.
  • Starting from the left hand side, fold each score line with a bone folder for crisp folds. First fold is a Valley, then Mountain and continue in this pattern.
  • Run tape along the top edge on the wrong side to hold the folds in place. This may curl, don't worry, it adhere's straight!
  • Adhere this onto the bottom of the stamped white piece of card stock.
  • Adhere Sugar Plum Ruched Ribbon on the top and fold ends to the back.
  • Attached the small Floral Die white piece to the bottom of the card with small dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
  • Attach the stamped and curtain piece to the card. 


We made these 3 cards in my last Card Making Class.
I run regular Card Making Classes and all ability levels are welcome. 

Fun & nurturing environment to learn in and I am there to help you all the way through.

More from Endless Birthday Wishes.

JULY HOST CODE: 2XK7ZK93 - ENDS 25 JULY.

As promised, here's another card I've made with the 'Endless Birthday Wishes' Stamp Set and the Best Badge Punch, and a few other friends along the way.

I love the simplicity of this card. It's fun, bright and cheery and sending an undeniable message of love!

My Style Info
  • The Best Badges Punch comes in handy again framing the birthday cake really well.
  • The Emerald Envy banner behind the cake draws your eye to the main 'Happy Birthday' message.
  • I love the Balloon Punch. It's punches out one large and one small balloon. Here I've punched them out of the Playful Palette Paper Stack.
  • A touch of texture added in with Happy Heart & Elegant Dots embossing folders.
