When veins are a good thing.

It’s Technique Tuesday! Today we are talking about veins and the fact that you want to see them. Yes, since it is fall it is all about leaves.

Some of our dies cut and also emboss at the same time. The sample used here is from Nature’s Root. First cut the outline or frame of the leaf out. Then grab the inner embossing details for the same shape. Lay this die with the raised edges down to ink first (Mossy Meadow used here). Then place on card stock being careful to not smudge the ink. Run through Die Cutting Machine.

Happy Crafting!

When spiders become daisies.

It’s Wacky Wednesday! This is the day where a product is used in a way it is not intended! Have you ever thought of using a flower to make a spider? (I know this was on the Facebook Live last week but I had to do this as an actual post.) The Daisy Punch or Medium Daisy Punch (depending on how big your spider) creates a very cute spider. Put some googly eyes on it and you are ready.

Happy Crafting!

The air is crisp.

It’s Tutorial Thursday! The air is starting to turn crisp in the mornings and evenings here. Fall is in the air. With autumn comes caramel apples and preparation for Halloween.

So for today’s creation I am making some cute spiders and a caramel apple pop cover.

Negative space can be a positive.

Sometimes the negative speaks louder than the positive.  This is true in stamping also.  In this case I took the smaller leaf from the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and created a background.  Don’t be scared of the negative.  Sometimes if the negative is used correctly it becomes a huge positive.
