I’m seeing embossing folders around more and more lately. They seem to be having something of a resurgence. I don’t have very many embossing folders, but I do enjoy using them. I even made a video a couple of years ago talking about different ways to use them, which you can find here if you’re … More Embossing Folder Cards
I really enjoy colouring. But sometimes it’s nice to have other ways to use our stamps. For today’s card instead of colouring I did paper piecing!

I’m not the best colourist. I enjoy colouring, and I think I do alright at it, but I’m no expert. I have a number of beautiful floral stamp sets which are designed to be coloured, so I thought I’d have a go at finding ways to use them without having to spend ages with markers, … More Creative Ways With Floral Stamps | SSS June 2018 Card Kit | Video
