Simply the Best

Good Afternoon!

My new ‘Simply the Best’ SVG Card Collection is available now and as usual is on special for the first week of sale.

Simply-the-Best

This collection contains dimensional cards for your Dads, Brothers and Sons with a large paper Rosette which can be permanently attached to the front of the card or temporarily attached so it can be removed and kept as a keepsake. Each card comes with a co-ordinating Box Envelope:

Best-Dad-Card     Best-Son-Card

Best-Bro-Card     Simply-the-Best-Box-Envelope

I used the ‘Explore’ collection from Authentique for the papers in my cards but any card or paper you have in your stash will work just great.

Here’s a video showing me making the Best Dad card and the Box Envelope too:

Flowers and Frames Stencil Collection

Good Morning Guys!

I’ve added a brand new set of Stencil SVGs to the Store, there are 9 different designs in the theme of Flowers and Frames. This collection includes a Square Flower Frame, a Border Flower Stencil, 5 Circle Flower Frames, 2 Flower Pattern Stencils and of course a Storage Envelope:

These stencils can be cut from stencil material like Mylar or just from regular Acetate that you may already have in your stash or even plastic packaging. I recommend using a thicker plastic for dry embossing (with your die cutting machines) or adhere 2 thinner stencils together to acheive a deeper emboss.
I recommend using thinner plastics when you wish to ink through your stencil with a blending tool to acheive a crisper edge. When you ink, paint, spray, paste or glitter through your stencil you may need to add a little repositionable adhesive to the underside of your Stencil to acheive crisp results and avoid leakage, I used Stick and Spray by Crafters Companion.
If you chose to cut all of your Stencils at the provided size you can store them in the Storage Envelope included in the collection:

Flowers-and-Frames-Stencils

I used the Repeating Rose Pattern Stencil for the background on this card using 3 different distress inks, I show how I made the background in the video below:

There are so many more fun and inspiring stencil techniques on the internet which I encourage you to take a look at but I thought I’d share a few of my favourites in this video:
