Beautiful Card Designs Made Easy

May 31, 2017

Two New Magazines ... coming soon !!

Hi Everybody,

I have two new videos to show you today featuring the newest magazine from Practical Publishing. One is Papercraft Essentials 147 and the other is Creative Stamping 44. Both have a fabulous free gift for you each month

Papercraft Essentials 147,  has this lovely free gift and it will be on sale tomorrow  (1st June)

All these fun cards have been created with the gift

The die will cut the horse and you can turn it into a Unicorn very easily with the little horn die.

There are so many ways that you can use this and inside the magazine you will find lots of ideas for you to try.

The video is here ... Happy Hooves

The Carousel is one of the stamps and the sentiments will complete the look.

Don't be afraid to cut the sentiments up to mix and match other sentences

In the video I show you this cool way to create this background

The addition of the foam between the layers makes it stand away from the card for extra dimension

I made two Unicorns to add to my design and coloured them with pens and I think this would be a good card to send to any age group
The second magazine is Creative Stamping 44 and has a wonderful A4 stamp set named Timeless Moments

This will see you though many many occasions throughout the year and will suit both male and female, young and old.

Here I have created a card for the teenagers in your life and this idea would be suitable for male cards too

But the stamp set has wonderful decorated numbers in it for the ages you may want to add and there is a special offer with the magazine of discounted dies to match them

The video is Timeless Moments 

But for a female birthday you can dress the card any way you wish and this one is for a really Nana

The magazines will be available from selected supermarkets and craft stores as well as WHSmiths.

Or you can get them direct from

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
