Something old ... something new ....

I just love it when a crafting mag plops through the letterbox. I can't wait to try out the ideas and freebies that come with it, and, well my craft room is one of the coolest places in the house at the moment!

Yesterday issue 180 of Simply Cards & Papercraft mag arrived with a Songbird Blossoms stamping die & embossing folder set

So I dug out these old pots of Brushos and made some backgrounds for the cards

Images stamped with Tuxedo Black Momento ink and set off with black mat and layering with little diamante for the birds eyes

I then tried the embossing folder on bright orange card and highlighted it with Versamagic Sahara Sand chalk ink. Such an enjoyable evening!


  1. Gorgeous cards.....I got that same magazine buy haven't used the freebies yet, thanks for the inspiration!

  3. WOW these are fab! I missed this set, stopped subscribing to almost all of the craft mags because they were getting very samey. Love how you've used this set! Hugs - Debs xxx
