Brand new Flutterings! A quick how-to guide

Our brand new Flutterings collection is on sale now and we’re thrilled that so many of you love the designs! I’ve been so excited about this collection and to be honest, I’m relieved that it has finally launched because it was a difficult secret to keep! The Butterfly and Hummingbird die sets are both stunning and completely unique. They cut everything you need to make kinetic cards with wings that flap when you pull and push the tab. They’re very [...]

Showstopper patterned paper flowers!

There’s nothing subtle about these beauties! I made them to decorate our stand at a recent show. I designed them to grab people’s attention – and they certainly did! In fact, they attracted SO much attention that we even persuaded Rich to do a live flower-making demo during our last HOCHANDA show! Anyway, due to popular demand, I thought I’d better share my flower-making secrets with you all . . . Part of the reason these flowers are so eye-catching is [...]

Irene’s Floral Home Decoration!

  Hi everyone…a slightly belated Happy New Year to you all!    I don’t know if you are the same as me when it comes to this time of year? Everywhere you look seems a little bit bare, now that the tree and decorations are packed away. Obviously the cold weather doesn’t help either, so what better way to cheer myself up than by making a bright, floral piece of home decor using the Buds to Blooms Perfect Peonies photopolymer stamp set!

Colour layering peony stamps!

The more I’m playing with our Perfect Peonies stamp set, the more I love it! I keep finding new ways to use it and it’s such fun experimenting with different ink combinations. Our photopolymer stamp layers are made with the added bonus of a little notch which marks the top of the stamp colour layer – so no more rotating a stamp around and around to see which way up it goes! I wanted to share with you how the colour [...]

Perfect Peonies!

Perfect Peonies is the much anticipated stamp set released with our new Buds to Blooms collection. It’s a bumper A4 photopolymer stamp set and it is, in fact, so full of stamps that we had to design the packaging on one side only as it was the only way we could display ALL of those gorgeous high quality stamps! It felt self-indulgent drawing the artwork for this stamp set as I enjoyed it so much! For me, what makes the [...]

Irene’s Christmas Keepsake!

Hi everyone! I thought I would make something a little bit different with my Beautiful Moments – Cold Days, Warm Hearts collection. We are due to have a new arrival of a baby girl in our family any time now…my cousin is about to give birth to her first child, so I thought why not make a picture celebrating her first Christmas? I have made this project on 12×12 mount board, so that afterwards it can be placed into a [...]

Ruth’s Sparkling Shaker Card!

I love to make interactive cards, and this is one to bring sparkle to any lucky recipient’s mantelpiece this festive season. Plus with the gorgeous Beautiful Moments – Cold Days, Warm Hearts Winter Days stamp set, it was a dream to make. If you’ve never made a shaker card before, you might think that it can be a bit tricky. But actually the process is very simple. Not the quickest, perhaps, but I definitely think it’s worth putting the time [...]

Simple stamping onto fabric!

If you managed to watch our last show on HOCHANDA, you’d have seen a new technique I tried using our gorgeous stamps! I was so impressed with the stamping quality that I experimented with stamping onto cotton fabric and I was stunned by the results! This design features stamps from our Christmas Wonderland photopolymer stamp set. I considered whether I should use a fabric paint but I had a Stampin’ Up! Rose Red ink pad in a drawer and I [...]

Fay’s simple Autumn stamping!

  So…my first project for Angela Poole! Very exciting and a massive honour. I hope this card shows just how effective keeping things simple can be.     Firstly, I used the Magic Windows Slide & Reveal die set to cut out the main images from the Christmas Wonderland and Winter Days stamp sets. Both images were coloured using just two colours of brush pens.      I inked around the edges of the reindeer image with Distress Oxide Gathered Twigs, and once I had constructed [...]
