Magazine Freebies ...

Hi Everybody,

Here I am with the latest in what is FREE with this months magazines. And this month there are some real treats in store for you. 
These are on sale on the 23rd February so keep your eyes peeled for them

So to start with here is Simply Cards and Papercrafts 160 and the gift is this stunning Hydrangea Set that can be used in lots of ways.

In the video I have used Embossing Paste and coloured it with Distress Inks to make this really pretty card.

The Hydrangea Set  will show you how I did this one and it is easy to do  Flip the stencil over for another look or use chalks.

 This one I have done in Water colours and then spritz the background to make the paint run.

 It gives a diffused look to the card and I really like this effect.

As well as the stencil there is an embossing folder and a stamp set that is really useful too and can give you even more designs to work with.

It includes sentiments as well as other items for you to create your own scenes and backgrounds

The next one to look out for is Creative Stamping 40 and the large A4 stamp set that comes with the magazine

 Creative Stamping 40 - Handmade with Love   is the video to show you the sneaky peak of this collection and some of the things that I have done with it.

Two really good magazines that are full of info for you and step by step instructions on how to make many cards.

More tomorrow ...
