FOUNDATIONS KITS !! **NEW**

NEW !!! FOUNDATIONS KITS. 
Do you wish you could get an assortment of paper for cardmaking without having to buy a whole 12x12 sheet of each design ? Do you dislike the waste from the 6x6 pads when cardmaking ? Do you struggle with matching cardstock to patterned paper ? Do you not have the cutters & scoring boards that make cardmaking easier ? Well ... this should help !! :)
Each package contains 6 pieces of precut patterned paper , 6 scored & folded coordinating cards , and 6 envelopes. 
The papers have been carefully chosen for cardmaking so the patterns are the right scale and most are 2 sided, offering other options. Each package will be themed so you will know what you are getting. 
All for just $5 !

** this week I will have Valentine themed Foundation Kits although the papers will work for other cards besides valentines. Next week I will start cutting and assembling other themes. **



Here's what you get in the package ...
6 patterned papers
6 coordinating scored & folded cards
6 envelopes 


This is the reverse side of the papers ... so you can see there are options !

Lots of materials in that little package ... all you need to add is your stamping & creativity. 


Watch for more themes in the next few weeks. 

** PS Lots of new stamps, dies, and other items in the shop. Open this Friday Feb 3 10am to 4pm.

Valentine Inspiration

As promised ... the Valentines. I like Valentine's day ... not as a big romantic holiday ... but as a day to show your partner, family, and friends that they are special to you. A card with a little chocolate marshmallow heart or bag of jelly beans would make someone's day !
I mucked around for a few hours last evening and here's what I came up with ...

I mainly used this BARGAIN stamp set (just $2.99 and stamps beautifully !!) and this sweet little die.

I then went to town ...  stamping, making background paper, Distress "smooshing", colouring, cutting, and adhering. Here they are !
Background paper made with the stamps.

Stamped & coloured with markers.

Distress "smooshing" , washi on the side, and a few diecuts.

Stamped background and some watercoloured diecuts. 

Smooshing + foiled paper.

Stamped background, stamped heart that was coloured, then Stickled. 

Stamped and coloured with markers. A little red glitter paper for extra sparkle.  

Simple but bold. 

Stamped background, watercoloured strip, and diecut with the drop outs from another diecut glued in. 

A simple tag, stamped & coloured. 

Inspired by the paper. :) 

Holding hands. ♥
Another smooshed card with a watercoloured stamped image, cut out and adhered with dimensionals. 
I hope these cards inspire you to make some and spread some love and kindness !
