Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

One Background - Two Cards (Video Tutorial)

Hi Everybody,

Still playing around with Brusho Crystal Colours and having lots of fun with them.

I thought it would be a good idea to make two cards from one of my pieces and so not waste any of my efforts

For this one I have used Lemon and Emerald Green and the video shows you how I did it.

The die I have used is the Classic Heart  and teamed it with the matching Scalloped Hearts

And the heart that was cut out has gone on to make another pretty card but with a different sentiment.

I bought my set from Make the Day Special and is Grand Greetings  by My Favorite Things

There are four useful phrases on the sheet and they are quite large stamps

I hope you enjoy the video and will pop back again as there is a lot more to come

The offer for the beads went very well and they went like hot cakes. 

I ended up sending out 30 packs altogether  ... with a little extra gift from me inside each one ... and they have been sent to Canada,  USA, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Portugal, Ireland and all over the UK

Please let me know when they arrive with you and I hope you enjoy the packages 

Some of you said you would like some but didn't give me your address ... so sorry you missed out and you are now too late they have all gone. 

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  4. Morning Christine,
    Lovely card, these inks look really interesting.

  5. Oh Wow Christina , you are such an inspiration , loving both your cards but if i had to choose a number 1 it would be the second one i adore the heart with the scalloped edge Underneath,

    Take Care

  6. 2 for the price of 1 - good idea but must admit I'm not fond of the colours.For my taste would look pretty with blues or pinks!!

  7. I love the two different looks using the negative and positive of the die cut hearts. The background is a o colorful and bright, in all the color combinations. Anyone would be thrilled to receive these cards. I love the over sized sentiment. Not sure they ship to the US but we're sold out anyway. Lovely cards, Christina!

  8. Hi Cristina. Lovely cards an great video the heart looks so nice in the yellow. I did leave you a post yesterday thanking you for the beads but I just had a look an it's not there or the one from day before that, Grace my middle granddaughter came down an picked them up she is going to do a bake off with her mum after school either today or tomorrow she said I could keep the die down mine but not to open an used till she comes for her next sleep over lol an she really means it.Thank you very much Christina how very generous of you the die is lovely. Take Care Melody an I suppose I better say grace as well lol xXx I really hope this post works I not want you thinking I am not. Grateful for your gorgeous gift, an you made a little girl very excited she can't believe they will turn into smartie shapes, I will kept checking back to see if the post worked an if not I will send you a email as something must be Wong my end with the posting x

  9. Great cards-love the idea of using the same background to make both.


  10. Hi Christina,
    A beautiful pair of cards and a great way to use as much of your cardstock as you can...I love frugal crafting lol. I think the yellow and green go really well together and I love the way you've used appropriately coloured map pins to block the hole in the lids of your brusho crystals. A very easy way to pick out the colour you need just by looking at the lid.
