Card Making tips Part 1

Card Making Tips - Part I

  • Keep all the scrap paper. You can use them to punch out punchies. (punchies: what you punch out with your paper punches).
  • Put a pack of Baby Wipe nearby to clean your rubber stamps in-between change of colors.
  • Ink your stamp with Versamark ink before using Stazon, Brilliance inks or any other difficult to clean ink.
  • Use washable inkpads when making cards with children. Children love to stamp on their hands, arms and faces.
  • Keep a notebook beside you on your bedside table to jot down card making ideas in the night.
  • Shake your chalk re-inker by putting it in a sock and spin it!
  • If the rubber on your rubber stamps are turning white, apply a light coat of glycerin over the rubber to avoid ghosting. You can find glycerin at your local pharmacy.
  • Not sure what color card to use to layer your image on? Choose a color from the image.
  • Lightly sand your shrink plastic first before stamping on it.
  • Dip a brush in water and paint your shape on the paper, pull paper apart with your hands to give a lovely feathered edge to your shape.
  • Stamp some images on white cardstock with black pigment ink and carry them in your purse with a small pack of colour pencils. Colour them during waiting time.
  • Store your markers horizontally.
  • Store your not so juicy inkpads upside down to let the ink sink to the top of the pads.

Crafts are here

Crafts are here, crafts are there,

My craft supplies are everywhere.

I really should clean this mess,

but I like it I confess.

Floor is littered, chairs are piled,

Kitchen's looking pretty wild.

On the table, counter too,

Seems that any place will do.

Hall is stacked with cartons high,

filled with things folks like to buy.

Garage is full, but so far....

there's still room to park the car.

I never have an idle day,

New ideas come my way.

Don't know yet what I'll create,

but my imagination's great.

My family smiles, they don't complain,

although at times I am a pain.

but when all is said and done,

I really am a crafty one!
