exploding box card fixing pop up top

Tuesday’s Tip! – Tidy toppers

Tuesday’s Tip! – Tidy toppers Todays tip is as follows: To keep toppers on cake cards (or similar) looking neat and tidy, pop a slit in the top of your cake and make sure you have created your topper with a little tail (or add one). Slide the tail through the slit and adhere inside (where no one can see). This leaves a  very neat and tidy look to your topper and in this case pictured, it also allows the topper to lay flat when the box lid is on and pop up when it is removed. Have a wonderful […]

colouring 2017 first

My first colouring attempt in just over 2 years!

My first colouring attempt in just over 2 years! Well some of you may know and some of you may not, but I used to be a colourist (as in colouring images, not hair! lol) quite a while back. I was lucky enough to work for some great companies colouring samples for them, including TV & magazine samples, national show samples and colouring for product packaging. I also worked for Letraset (now windsor and Newton) who are amongst lots of other things, the creators of Promarkers (which were always my favourite pens!) I loved every part of it, colouring was my passion […]

Sunday Share – Stefanie Carvey

Sunday Share – Stefanie Carvey Eeeeek what with being super busy over Christmas and then having to play a massive catch up with paperwork, ready for the tax deadline, I really slacked in showing some fab customer makes from the Christmas goodies! However they are too beautiful not to share, so I will be having a series of Sunday Shares and over the next few weeks, you will get to see some of the amazing customer makes (even if some are a little out of season now hehe) Stefanie was very busy and painted up a few of our products, I […]

blood drip stencil sea scene

Playing with stencils – Seaweed

Playing with stencils – Seaweed As mentioned yesterday, I also noticed that the dripping blood stencil could double as great seaweed and make a fab underwater scene, in fact I love the underwater scene created with this stencil I could cut a proper seaweed/sea bed stencil (which I may still do), but its always great to have a stencil that can be used for more than one purpose (and you certainly couldn’t use a proper sea bed one as dripping blood!) I wonder if this stencil could be used for any other scenes or things too? These backgrounds were only […]

blood drips tinselr red embossing

Playing with stencils – Dripping Blood effect and Woodgrain!

Playing with stencils – Dripping Blood effect and Woodgrain! Good morning all, As mentioned yesterday, I said i would share my stencil experiments today First is wood grain, this is quite a big stencil, I think the effect was OK (although it looks more like a zebra!) but its not quite as i wanted! Added to that the stencil is very flimsy feeling, due to so many large cut out areas. So unfortunately although I will keep this one, the design will go on the ‘bin it’ pile and these won’t be created to sell. The next stencil is meant […]
