Hi All, I am very excited to be part of this very speacial Catherine Pooler release. I hope you enjoy not only this hop but ALL the fabulous new products.

For today’s card creations I have created two cards with the one ink blended panel.

I first heat embossed the backgrounds stamp with white embossing powder on white Catherine Pooler cardstock. I have ink blended with Mardi Gras, Suede Shoes, Grape Crush, Juniper Mist ink with Ranger mini ink blending tool.

Each panel has been foam mounted on either a white & black top folding card bases.

With the Juniper Mist ink & Grape Crush I have stamped the sentiments with the Seasonal Sentiment & Borders Stampset.

Both cards are very simple but with these inked panels it adds so much vibrancy to the card.

Jo Herbert - 311017 Christmas Tags Pic 1

Welcome to today’s blog post brought to you for Craftie Cafe Online store. 

Today, I have created some fun tags to place on bottles of wine as hand made gift idea. These tags can be mass produced and were so much fun to make.

Coming to the end of year it is timely that I have some of these ready to give to teachers, work colleagues and friends.

I have used an array of products from Craftie Cafe  wtth MFT, Avery Elle, Wplus9 and more.

Craftie Cafe: Lawn Fawn Cheery Christmas Card

Jo Herbert - 160517 - Christmas - Picture 1

Hello paper crafting peeps and welcome to today’s blog post. I am preparing for working on my Christmas in July projects. Now I know it’s a bit early to start working on it but the key for me as a full time worker, mum of 3 very active kids plus having an awesome hobby is to be organised and prepare. Around this time I start sketching out card layouts and designs that I can make in bulk. The colouring of the stamped images are what took the longest however when I mass produce this card I will get the kids to help with the stamping and colouring therefor making it into a family event.

All products and supplies are available at the Craftie Cafe store. Links below in the supplies table.
