Card-making-magic, Issue #047-- Where is Spring ??
April 10, 2013

Where is Spring ??.

I don't know about you but I am a little tired of being cold here in the UK and I am now longing for some warmth and some sunshine to go with it.

I look forward to sitting outside in the garden and hopefully have some family BBQ's this year.

I know that my newsletter goes around the world ... so if you are in a country with lovely weather then please send us a little sunshine.

The Give Away for the Spectrum Noir pen set went very well and 422 people wanted to win them. But sadly there was only one set to be won and they were claimed by Linda Parker.

The next Give Away is coming soon and so if you would like to win some fabulous flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts then pop over to the Blog regularly and add your name when the prize post goes live.

I use their flowers on a lot of my cards and they have many colours, styles and sizes.

The latest video tutorial to be added was the Letterpress Technique

This is such a pretty technique that can be created from any of your embossing folders and the video will show you how to get the look for your self.

The flowers on the pictured card are some from Wild Orchid Crafts ... just to give you some idea of the prize on offer this month.

The other feature on the card was the subject of another video I was asked to make.

This short tutorial was to show new people to card making how to add the really cheap embellishment ... namely ribbons ... to your designs and mostly about Tying A Bow

The finished effect can make or spoil the look of the card and of course you want the best result ever for any that you make.

So hopefully the video will have you making bows for all your cards and then together with the beautiful lowers you will have cards that you love.

Please don't forget to pop over to the blog and join the growing list of followers.
