Accenting your pattern papers with Foil or Gilding Flakes

Accenting your pattern papers with Foil or Gilding Flakes

Theresa is sharing some tips to add accents to your pattern paper.The pattern paper the design team has been using for cards provides an excellent opportunity to add some detail. There took the opportunity to try a new product to her, Nuvo Radiant Gold Gilding Flakes, to create some blingy accents to the Craft Consortium Ink Drops – Candy 6x6 paper. Using the Nuvo Medium Glue Pen, Theresa traced around the tan outlines.

Getting More Out Of Your Embossing Folders with Karen @cardsbykaren

Getting More Out Of Your Embossing Folders with Karen @cardsbykaren

Leveling Up when using a card kit

Leveling Up when using a card kit

Using a Card Kit is a great place to start when you need some inspiration. Karen used Photoplay’s Tulla and Norbert’s Christmas Party Card Kit to make these winter themed designs. Here’s what Karen had to say about the process:Card 1: I started by following the instructions included in the card kit. Then, I switched out the background paper and sentiment sticker, removed one snowman sticker and added some snowflake sequins. Card 2: I used the snowflake background paper that was intended for card 1, added some scrap strips of paper and a hand-cut snowdrift. Next, I ran this piece...
