Cards for your Friend ...

Hi Everybody,

The other day I added a video about Storing Your Spellbinders and it was accompanied by the photo of a card.

Someone thought that the video was about making the pictured card .... but nope it wasn't.

So not wanting  to disappoint someone  here is another card made in the same way ... just in a different colour.
And I am now going to do short videos of different  card  ideas  and add them  directly to the Blog pages.

They will be also added on a  permanent basis  in the Tutorials Section  so that they will be easier to find ... and I have just added some new tutorials in there today.

You will also find more of my Design Team  tutorials on the  Spectrum Noir Blog

I hope you will enjoy them and don't forget that there are a lot more listed on the Website ....

So here is the first one on making the  Friendship Card and I will be adding these to my Etsy shop also

The blue card is Centura Pearl from Crafters Companion and it is a good weight and comes in lots of colours

The list of dies used will be  added at the bottom of the page and is there as guide only.  Shop around for the best deals and don't forget    Save On Hobbies    as there are new dies coming in there soon

The flourish is from   Want2Scrap   and the wide satin ribbon is from my "Stash"

The flowers are from   Wild Orchid Crafts   and if you were not lucky enough to win some then pop over to their website and browse around ... it is well worth a look.

The magazine I told you about yesterday is  called     INSPIRATIONS   and it is available from the   Crafters Companion   website,   Create and Craft TV,   WH Smith  and  Tesco

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
