NEW! BIG Blooms EZPrint Cards. Vicki Parfenow Stamps.

My ETSY STORE is finally open for business!  This has been a dream of mine for so long. I will be doing a series of videos on Youtube showing how to make the most of the products.
I have stocked the shop with printables of my design and art work, plus wall quotes that are ready to print and frame in A4 size. There are also some cute printables of my big-eyed dolls....if you are a Blythe lover, you may enjoy these too.
Happy creating!

Gold Embossed Card and Envelope. Stampin Up.

I love using this simple technique to create a dramatic layering effect on my cards. I also show how easy it is to line an envelope. If you don't have the envelope liner diecuts you can trace the shape of the flap and cut using scissors.

Thank You Card Two Ways, using the Handwritten background stamp from St...

Too different cards made at the same time means you can save time and effort when you are making multiple cards. I can never have too many thank you cards, as I am always sending these out to my friends.

Glamorous Healing Hugs Card. Stampin' Up!

This get well card uses the new distINKtive stamps from Stampin' Up!

Here you can see how I created dimension by only adhering part of each flower and leaf, then curling up the edges with my fingers. 

The silver embossing matches the shimmer on the layering piece. This is brushed silver, which is a retired card stock, but we managed to re-create this effect in class using Smokey Slate card stock with a border of wink of stella around the outside.

The inside looks really pretty with the silver embossing and stamped background to match the front.
Have a fantastic weekend.
