Simply Cards & Papercraft 165 (SC&P 165)

Hi Everybody,

This magazine will be in selected supermarkets and craft stores today and the gift is really special with this months magazine

It the Little Bird Stamp and Outline Dies   and the video will show you how I created the card shown

Ar first glance the stamp set looks a little complicated but it is really easy to use.

The backing card shows you how all the little stamps will fit together.

You can create all different colours of birds and then dress the card up as much as you would like.

The blue bird card would make a great male birthday greeting

For this card I have used some beautiful flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and put one of my pink birds in the cage and the other on top

Perfect for a female birthday and the flowers make it extra special.

You can stamp first and then die cut or die cut and then stamp whichever you prefer.

And if you have a stamping tool then that will aslo help you to get perfect placement every time

Have a look on the shelves for this lovely free gift

Not shown in the video is the quality paper pack from Prima that also comes free with the magazine.

It has beautiful papers and sentiments for you to add to your cards and lots of inspiration inside the pages .

Grab a cuppa and relax for a little while while you browse SC&P 165

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx

  7. Hi Christina
    Must look out for this mag. I love birds, stamps or dies it doesn't matter which, but to get both is just perfect.

  8. Love what you have done with this free gift from the mag, shame our local Sainsbury's has stopped stocking it. Need to work harder to get it.

  9. Hi Christina,
    I love cards in fresh and vibrant colors so these 3 cards are all winners for me.

  10. Hi Christina

    Just watched your enjoyable video. Great cards, especially the last one!

  14. How cute are these, the colours are stunning along with the blended backgrounds

  15. Beautiful Christina, it takes nearly 2 months for magazines to arrive here in Australia, so I will have to keep my eyes open for it.

  16. H Christina
    Just managed to watch the video and am very impressed with the ideas you have shown us. I'll have to get going and come up with some ideas with this die and stamp set.
    Best wishes
