This month for the Scrapbookingncraft August 2021 Project we are using Flowers & Vines White Medium Leaves. I also decided to have a giveaway for my birthday! You need to watch the video… To see my last project for Melinda click here.
I used several different items from Melinda’s shop which I will link below. There were a couple of different mediums used, Inka Gold, Distress Ink, Distress Spray Stain and Dylusions. I used stamp sets from MFT and Altenew for a couple of the sentiments and the flowers.
Again you need to watch the video to see the giveaway. Melinda has generously provided a 15% off coupon to Scrapbookingncraft as well. I hope you enjoyed this months Scrapbookingncraft August 2021 Project video. Let me know your favourite card below. Hope you’re creating some arty craft alchemy yourself. Bye for now.
Today I wanted to share how I used contact to make my own specialty papers super cheaply. There is a cost breakdown at the end of the video below. I used many dies and stamps sets to make my cards so if you’re interested in cross brand card making this is the video for you!
For the first two cards I used two different Altenew sets for the sentiments and the die is from the Kaisercraft Rose stamp and die set used without stamping. Using a similar style I also made a card using the Tiger Lily Spellbinders D-Lite die. Last in this batch is a card using a Lifestyle Crafts die that I paired with some Gansai Tambi Starry Colours watercolor.
4 CAS Cards in a similar style
The next two cards use Kaisercraft dies again. The first is using the Circle Posy with a sentiment from the Inkadinkado Expressions set. My favourite card uses the Bouquet die with a sentiment from the Lawn Fawn Mom + Me set.
The rainbow card is my fave
The next two cards have an ocean feel. One uses the mermaid from Kaisercraft and a spellbinders label die, the other uses a Fish from find it trading and sentiments from Kelly creates and Your Next stamp. Lastly I made a card with a balloon vellum background and sentiment dies from Crafti Potential.
Fishes and Mermaids and fun stuff
I hope you enjoyed these cards using the DIY Specialty Paper, let me know your favourite below. I hope you’re creating your own arty crafty alchemy. Bye for now.
Today I am sharing with you Papercraft Essentials Issue 181 and making a few projects mostly with the 3D embossing folder. This is the first 3D embossing folder in my stash!
I really like this 3D embossing folders versatility from Papercraft Essentials Issue 181 because the embossed side looks like gems and the debossed side looks like honeycomb. The honeycomb side made a great backdrop to the Elizabeth Crafts Buzzin’ Around stamps and dies. With a little Wild Honey Distress Oxide and some sparkly silver vellum the cards was complete.

The next two cards I ran with the Geo theme and used Tim Holtz’ Geo Springtime Butterfly die cuts for one card, blending out some more oxides in the background. Then I used Salty Ocean and Wilted Violet as my colours of choice and Happy Mother’s Day was heat embossed in white finished this card off. The next card has a background of Candied Apple Oxide and some Poppy Crafts Hexagons. The Hedgehog Hollows Finding Your Way Heart is stamped and embossed with Glacier White Nuvo detail embossing powder. The sentiment is from Honey Bee Stamps
Geo Butterfly and Heart Cards
The last card showcases both the Geo stamps and 3D embossing folder from Papercraft Essentials Issue 181. The fox was stamped with memento, Coloured with Copics in YR21 YR24 and YR27, then fussy cut out. The vellum looked so pretty as the bee wings that I decided to use a pale blue piece as the backdrop over the 3D embossing folder. I stacked a hello die cut and stamped foxy lady on a banner to finish off the card.

I hope you enjoyed this look at Papercraft Essentials Issue 181. But my one criticism is that my embossing folder has almost split at the crease as a result of running it through the Cuttlebug a couple of times. Some box tape should sort that out because I really want to use it more! Let me know below which is you favourite card bellow. Thanks for stopping by.
