The little crafter show: Birthday shaker card.

Well hello everyone thank you so much for stopping by today. On the blog I sharing with you all my very first shaker card. Now shaker cards a really popular, can used for an event and are easy to make.

Arts,crafts and everything in between: Crafting with inks.

I first would love to wish you all a happy Thanksgiving or happy holiday.  As promised I talking about inks on this week's podcast. It was fun, neat and cool to relearn all about inks. Each ink is formulated differently and in a rainbow of colors. It can be a bit overwhelming but trust me it is not. I find that each company has so many help with a blog post, videos or you can always email them for help. You will learn pretty quickly and crafting with inks in no time.

Arts, crafts and everything in between : Stamping tools.

It is nice when crafting gets a little bit easier especial stamping. For me it is one of the trickiest things to do.  Just like I had questions like what is the difference between a red rubber stamp to clear ones, what size block to use and how much pressure to a ply.  I know you may have some questions about inks but I thought I would start off with the tools that help us get a clear and centered stamped images.

    Here is a list of stamping tools that I have mentioned in todays podcast. If you have an comments questions please leave feel to leave them down below or you can email me, thank you for listening and bye for now Eileen.
