1 PIECE OF 6″x6″ = 4 CARDS. SEE THE VIDEO!

Last weekend I joined in an online “Craft-along-athon”. (It’s a bit of a mouthful). It was a Zoom event for Demonstrators in the South Pacific Market – Australia and New Zealand. It was a fun time crafting together. Isn’t it always. ūüôā (And that’s why you need to join the family to take part in these fun type of events. I always love to welcome new crafters to my JEN’s INK team).

One of the projects we made was using one sheet of 6″x6″ piece of paper to create 4 cards. It’s similar to a One Sheet Wonder which you might have heard of. I loved it and I have to say I have been creating them all week. It’s a great way of creating lots of cards in a short time – and using up that paper you have.

So today’s video I’m going to share with you how to create 4 cards from one sheet of 6″x6″ paper.

Be sure to stay to the end and I will show you the other card sets I have made. I would love to hear what your favourite is. You can find the Template Link further below.

Watch the video below or it’s now on Youtube.

Here are the cards from today’s video using the Hand-Penned Designer Series Paper.

Would you like to get the Cutting Guide Template? Head -> HERE.

I hope you get to create these cards. They are fun and easy.

I will share the other cards I created at a later date.

Have a great day,

Jenny

MERRIEST MOMENTS CATALOGUE CASE!

Another card to share with you today with the Merriest Moments Bundle. I have been loving these gorgeous stamps and dies. I have showed you a number of cards in the last few posts. (Check back on my blog posts if you have missed them).

Today’s card is a CASE of one shown in the catalogue on p43.

The difference on mine – I added a card mat for the stamping and changed the colours of the Poinsettias. I used Poppy Parade and Cherry Cobbler. I also just stamped by sentiment in Basic Gray ink rather than heat embossing. (OK I was being lazy to get my heat tool and embossing powder out). I think it turned out ok just with that though.

I hope you have managed to grab the Merriest Moments Bundle. It will be great for your Christmas creating.

You can see it in my store now -> HERE. If ordering there please use the Host Code: F4PDXAY7

THE DOUBLE LAYER DUO TECHNIQUE + VIDEO!

I recently came across a card idea in a magazine I was reading. I thought it looked cool. I wanted to replicate it with our inks and stamps. So I did! I put together a video for our Friday Flicks for you to see how to create it yourself.

These are the cards. I call it the Double Layer Duo Technique. It’s an interesting twist on the Double Layer Stamping Technique if you have tried that before.

I have used the gorgeous Delicate Dahlias stamp set. This works so well.

For this technique you will want a stamp set with a number of images. I can’t wait to try this with some other stamps.

Here is the video.

The Delicate Dahlias stamp set is available as a free choice for Sale-A-Bration with your qualifying orders over $180 AUD. There are only a few weeks left to grab this.

If you need to place an order and you are in Australia I would love to help you.

I hope you get to make one. Let me know.

Have a great day,

BEAUTIFULLY PENNED PAPER WEEK – COLOUR THE FLOWERS!

Another project for you for Beautifully Penned Paper Week.

With the black and white paper prints you can colour the flowers like I have on this card. These were added to a different print of the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper.

The card base and ribbon were Pale Papaya but the flowers were actually coloured with the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blends. (I think it was the light one anyway). The sentiment label was diecut with one of the Scalloped Contours Dies.

You would have seen the Beautifully Penned Designer Series Paper a lot now not just on my blog here. It is available as a free choice with your orders over $90 for Sale-A-Bration.

Do you need some supplies to get creating? If you are in Australia you can contact me directly to order OR head to my store -> HERE. Please use the Host Code: GS9S4AY9

Don’t forget to add your free Sale-A-Bration choice.

I will see you again with another Beautifully Penned Paper project next post. Have a great day.
