Guest Designer

Happy hump day folks!! We have a fabulous Guest Designer today that I am sure will lift you mid week blues........
Welcome Nanda

Hi, my name is Nanda, I am 33 years old and live in The Netherlands. When I was 18 I started making cards, 3D cards. After 8 years I wanted something different and then I found stamping and scrapbooking. Since then I make cards on different ways (but not 3d cards!!!) and scrapbook a lot. Most off the time I scrapbook about my two birds, they are funny and with good luck I get great pictures off them. I make cards and scrapbook just to relax and have fun.

Nanda made this gorgeous card using Santa Bryce

To see more of Nanda's fantastic work, visit her blog at Nanda Creatief
See you tomorrow for our New Release:)

Digi Heat Embossing Tutorial

Happy Tuesday all, it’s tutorial Tuesday with me Jo!

Well I’ve had a mad idea this week…not sure if it will work but gonna give it a go!  My tutorial for today came to mind when I was sorting out my tool draw…. I came across my embossing pen that I bought way back and never used, so I thought about whether you can print off a digi and emboss the image?

So today’s tutorial is over on the Tutorials and is…..

Digi Heat Embossing

Heat Embossing is very useful when colouring projects as the raised lines help to give a clean definition and you don’t have to worry about being too neat and going out of the lines….. Heat embossing gives a shiny raised image which adds a lovely finishing touch to any projects and can give digi images a hand stamped finished. 

Love Jo xxx

Candle Tutorial

Good morning!  My name is Wanda and I'm so excited to bring you today's tutorial!
I was asked to show you how to put images on candles.

1. First you want to pick your image.  You can either pick a image that's already colored or print out one that you want to color.  I love Digi stamps because you can adjust them to what ever size you want.
If you have your favorite Digital Delight Rubber stamp you can also use this by stamping on tissue paper.
2. Measure your candle so that you know what size you need.
3. Color you image.  I have found that Koh-i-nor pencils work the best.  You can also use watercolor pencils.  The Bic pens seem to run when you melt the candle.
4. After you finish coloring.  Cut out your image.  Make sure you cut the negative areas out with a xacto knife.
5.  You will need to have wax paper, elastics and your heat gun.  If you don't have a heat gun you can use a hair dryer.

6. Place your image on your candle where you want it.
7. Wrap the wax paper tightly around the candle and secure with rubber bands.
8. Carefully heat candle with the heat gun.  The wax will start to melt.  Watch very carefully.  If you keep in one place it will melt a hole.  So move the air around.  You will know it's done when a gloss appears.
9. Slowly remove Wax paper.  Smooth out any dimples with your finger while still warm.
10.  Decorate your candle with anything you would like to use.  Ideas like ribbon, Stickles, flowers, beads.  Let your imagination take over.
Have lots of fun with this!  I would love to see what you create!
Huggles, Wanda

These are just terrific Wanda:)
