Hi there!!! It is so exciting to try new supplies and I'm loving the animated stamps and dies by Motion Craft by Uchi's Design. 

Once you make your first project, they are super easy to use and they will allow you to create  the most original and fun interactive cards.

So you can create cards with animated images, sentiments or backgrounds and use different die sets to create mechanisms to create different card designs.

I'll start with the very basics and today I made a large slim card with an animated background. 

I used minimum supplies. To start, all you need an animation stamp set and an animation grid ( die cut or sheet)... You can use dies in your stash or a craft knife to cut windows and slots while learning and loving the animations.

Motion crafts supplies are available online and in different countries. I added a supplies list at the bottom of this post and in the UK you can get them at Create and Craft Tv .

Thanks for stopping by and thanks in advance for your comments.  I love to read them and to know what do you think.

Hello everyone,  welcome to a very special Blog Hop- Giveaway in collaboration with the WOW! Embossing Powder & Honey Bee Stamps.

I'm Bibi Cameron in the north of Scotland and for today I made bold and bright projects using yummy  WOW embossing powder colours.

The stamped images and die cuts were created using  Zen Bouquet stamp set, Spring Blossoms stamp setCoffee Brake Die SetHello and Fabulous dies by Honey Bee Stamps.

I also used Nuvo Clear Mark Ink and Versamark Clear Ink and the Tim Holtz stamping platform to stamp the images.
All the papers, images and sentiments in this post are heat embossed with exception of a few sentiments on some of the banners. For those, I used black ink by Simon Says Stamp.
So for the tags in this post,  I heat embossed the huge image from Zen Bouquet on different cardstock colours and then I die cut them and put them together as you see in the pictures.

I also used the three small floral stamps from Zen Bouquet to stamp backgrounds and I die cut them with a Gift Tag Die and place them behind the main tags just to add a little bit something.

To create all the tags I used translucent embossing powders:  Blue Topaz, Fuchsia fusion; and  Opaque embossing Powders: violet and  Green metalline. 

WOW Primary Translucent Embossing Powders will let light through and so the colour underneath will affect the finished result... In other words, the cardstock colour will affect the final colour of the embossed images.  

Just to share a couple of samples, I applied blue translucent embossing powder on blue cardstock so it looks like a watermark (see the tag on the left).  Using the same cardstock colour,  I applied opaque violet metalline embossing powder and the colour stand out (see the tag on the right).

You will only get pure true colours of primary translucent embossing powders if you use white cardstock to stamp the images and that's what I did on the card below.
To make this card I first rubbed an anti-static bag over the paper and using one of the stamps from Spring Blossoms stamp set and I stamped the whole panel using clear ink. I sprinkle a bit of Fuchsia Fusion embossing powder on the top of the panel, then Blue Topaz on the middle and then WOW Gold Rich metallic embossing powder to finally heat set the whole image. 

I also used Hello die and Simple Alpha stamp set by Honey Bee Stamps to complete the sentiment and I added Nuvo Aztec Gold Glitter accents.

I just wanted to share extra samples and ideas and on this card, you can also see the Blue Topaz Translucent embossing powder real colour. 

I applied this blue translucent powder on yellow cardstock and the images look green and on pink and it looks purple, tone on tone it will look clear... I did the same with the translucent  Fuchsia embossing powder and this powder on navy blue cardstock looks red ... isn't is awesome!!

For this card, I used Green Metalline Embossing powder which is opaque and it shows a shiny reflection when viewed from different angles.  

You can also see this vibrant opaque green colour of embossing powder in the first picture in this post. I  applied it on yellow cardstock to make a tag and the colour stands out beautifully. 

WOW! offer different types of embossing powder,  translucent, opaque, metallic, pearlescent, glow in the dark, puff , Glintz, and glitter embossing powders, each offers beautiful stamping possibilities. I'm loving WOW opaque, metallic and glitter  embossing powders!
Have a look at what everyone is making... the next in the hop is Brenda Noelke she is amazing!!!

Hello everyone! I couldn't resist applying Gouache paint over the beautiful sunflower from Summer Flowers Stamp Set by Simon Says Stamp and share a card idea with you.

I love to explore new colouring tools and I have been playing with Gouache paint. I got the introductory kit with primary colours and I'm a newbie using this paints but I'm preparing a video to show you how easy is to mix the paint to create new shades and to add colours to cards.

The video will be available on my Youtube Channel here not later than Tuesday in case you want to have a look.  It is really an easy media to use and I'm kind of loving the results.  

Gouache paints are a mix of watercolour and acrylic paint and it is a very... very opaque so you can apply layers and layers of paint and every layer will cover completely the previous one. This means that  with very little effort you will be able to add colour to stamped images


I love the peach colours you can get by mixing red, yellow and white gouache paints.

I stamped the images on Canson watercolour paper using Distress Tea Dye ink and I applied the paints with brushes size 0, 2, 4, 6.

I  added a black banner as it seems to pop up a bit more.

I used SSS Stained Glass Love stamp set and I  heat embossed the sentiment using Nuvo Clear ink and Nuvo Fine Detail Embossing Powder.


As I mentioned in a previous blog post using Gouache... Just to make a comparison so you could understand a bit more about  Gouache characteristic: Gouache is to watercolour paints what Distress oxides are to traditional Distress inks...  can you imagine how cool is that? PLOP

What do you think? do you like the paint colours and the look and feel of this card?

That's all for today!

Hello everyone!  today I'm sharing creative ways to stretch out the use of your supplies while I walk you through the process of making a couple of super easy, colourful and fun summer cards.

I used Hello Summer die, Night Paint Stamp Set,  Dimensional Triangles cover plate die from the latest Neat and Tangled release and one of my fav ever: Origami Map die also by Neat and Tangled (all supplies listed below).

Here is the Video

Creative rainbow summer cards with alcohol markers - YouTube


As you can see in the video I used Alcohol Markers with a broad tip to create a striped pattern on a piece of bristol board paper and I only used the markers to add colours to other images and die cuts on these cards.

 This is the first card I'm making the video and I think it is perfect to send encouragement. 
For this card, I trimmed a portion of the large die cut produced by Dimensional Triangles Cover plate die and I made a kite.

The girl image is from Night Paint Stamp Set. In the original image,  she has a brush in her hand. I cut it off so it seems like she is holding the kite.
I also want to invite you to make something different with your dies.  Check them out and find new ways to use them and to get the best of them.

This is a picture of the original kite idea. The kite is not perfectly done and the alcohol marker ink on the acetate faded a bit when I touched it.

I still think is a pretty idea and as I mention in the video it reminds me of the handmade kites my father use to make for me when I was a little girl.  August it is the perfect month if the year to fly a kite in Colombia.  the process of making the kite was the best part of it!

Do you have the same tradition in your country?
That's all for today!

Hello everyone! today I'm sharing a video about the Tonic Studios Craft Kit #10, available for pre-order at : www.tonicstudioscraftkit.com  or until supplies last.

In the video, you will see 3 project ideas using the alphabets and banners dies included in the kit and I also made tags using the waste or the negative die cuts produced after using the alphabet die.

I also used one of the large frames dies to create the card above and Sparkle stamp set by Tonic.


Tonic Craft kit 10 alphabet & banner dies - YouTube



So while I tried the products in the Tonic Studios Craft Kit #10,  I made projects in completely different styles to share  some ideas :

1st  idea 
Create decorative stitched banners and custom messages for your projects using the alphabet dies and any of the three layering banners in the set.

2nd idea
 Mix and match kut supplies with other supplies in your stash.

The banner dies produce a beautiful decorative stitched pattern around the edge of the banner.

There are 3 banners in the kit and they measure 1/2" inch, 3/4'' and 1" width. They are about 4-1/2" long.

The small alphabet die includes 2 different fonts. The smaller letters measure 1/2" inches tall and the larger 3/4" inches.  

The fonts coordinate perfectly with the layering banners in the kit.
3rd  idea
Use the papers in the kit and the alphabet die to make simple and fun alternative projects.

This is the last project in the video and it might look very simple but I really really love it...  I think it is a good card to make and sell together with a matching blue, yellow or golden envelope.

This card measures 6"x6" inches and I used all the papers in the kit #10 and a 1" punch circle to create the balloons.

4th idea
 Use the waste or negative die cuts and banners in alternative ways.


 My daughter Emma ( 5 years old) and I  put these tags together using the waste we got on the table after trying the products in the kit  .. in the video, they are the second project but in real life, they were the last.



These are  extra ideas to use banners and  to create personalized messages  ( as in the 1st card in the video)
I used the banners at the top of the tags and at the centre of the tags. 

The banners on the centre of the tag were die cut twice to get the fishtail shape on bends.ds .

 Use negative die cuts or waste on the front of a projector behind a window.

 The banners can be created in ant length .. you can hang them from a piece of twine or just glued flat along the front panel of your projects.



That's all for today! Thanks for stopping by.

Hello everyone, I wanted to make a happy card for today's  Coffee Lovers blog hop - giveaway over the Honey Bee Stamp Blog here! and I used Curious Kittens  Stamp set and coordinating die set,  and also few dies from Coffee Brake dies ( all supplies listed below).

The hop is filled with inspiration and ideas and sweet prizes, I hope you can pay us a visit.

Those little kittens went crazy with the coffee cup! The only sensible one in that scene is the tiny little mouse! 

This is rather a very simple C6 card.  I stamped the images on Bristol smooth paper with Simon Says Stamp Black Ink and I added colours with Zigs.

The bubbles, the doodles lines and mouse are also images from Curious Kittens stamp set. 

For the Coffee Cup, I  used 4 dies from Coffee Brake dies  and I also used Zigs to add shadows. I die cut the cup and the cup led out of Bristol smooth paper and  I also used Kraft, Green and gold glitter paper for the cup band.

I splattered the background using the ink of a brown Zig mixed with water.

That's all for today! Thanks for stopping by.

Hello everyone,  it is very sunny here in Scotland so that I want to spend the whole day outside or in my garden trying to catch some sun and when the fresh night falls and my children are in bed is always good to spend time in my craft room or here in my blog.

So today I'm sharing a CAS card I made last night using Center Cut Flowers Stamp by Simon Says Stamp and I added colours using Arteza water-based markers.

I love the centre-cut stamps and their versatility.  You actually get two stamps in one and more than a solid background they offer the benefit of having a detachable stamp in the centre that you can use to create endless compositions in terms of design and project size.

They are also high-quality cling rubber stamps and measure about 6"x6" inches. 

To get the nice and crisp impression  I like to use these stamps with the Tim Holtz Stamping Platform.  This platform is essential and I use it daily. 


Ok so today, I used the centrepiece of this stamp you can see t in the picture above.. isn't it cool?

I  just stamped the image on the centre of my panel and a little bit to the left using "Antique Linen Distress Ink" to be able to apply an easy no -line colouring.
I decided to use yellow and orange +  brown,  maroon and grape colours to add shadows.


When I finished colouring I used Wonky Frames Wafer Dies by Simon Says Stamp to die cut the watercolour panel and I glued it onto a grey panel using foam tape also to add dimension.

I created a Black C6 card base for this card out of an A4 sheet of 300grams cardstock.

As I wanted a small sentiment and in capital letters, I used one of the sentiments from Adore You stamp set by Altenew I heat embossed it on black cardstock using Versamark Clear Ink and Nuvo Fine Detail Embossing Powder.

To finish this card I applied white and black dots with a micro fine tip black and white pen and I embellished with Nuvo crustal Glaze and sequins by Neat and Tangled.

All supplies are listed below.

That's all for today! Thanks for stopping by.

Hello everyone, a new exciting product release is available at the Simon Says Stamp! shop here and we are celebrating with a blog hop - giveaway with ideas and inspiration to use the new products.

My projects today features Leafy Frame Stencil and You are my Sunshine Wafer Dies and  I also used Stitching Butterfly dies from the last month release.

I also have a video available on my Youtube Channel so you can see the products in action .. check it out here!


Negative and positive Stencil + New SSS Sending Sunshine Release - YouTube

Leafy Frame Stencil will allow you to create a 6"x6" inches background but you can also use part of it to create smaller projects.

I used the positive and the negative image produced for Leafy Frame Stencil to make the card and the tag in the picture below...


 I also wanted to see how the complete stencilled image looks and I made the cards below.

To make this cards, I placed the stencil on a 6"x6" inches piece of Bristol paper and using a Nuvo soft sponge I applied Distress Oxide Inks and traditional Distress Inks . I mixed them to create darker areas ( see colours in the supply list below). 

I  sprayed gold shimmery ink over the panels and also water. I placed the spray bottle far away from the paper trying to get small drops of paint and water but the spray is predictable and I got some very large drops... It is fine tho!

I die cut the sentiment  You are my Sunshine out of  Craft Perfect Gold Mirror cardstock and Gold Glitter cardstock.

I added the butterflies (Stitching Butterflies) to complete the card. I simply added Distress Ink on the centre of the butterflies with a dauber to add colour.

After creating these backgrounds,  the stencil was covered by ink so I spray it with water and I placed facing down on a piece of paper. I then run it through the die cutting embossing machine using a  silicon embossing mat underneath the paper.

That's how I  stamped the negative images for the other projects in this post.

Hello everyone, we had the sunniest day today in the North of Scotland and also the hottest in about 8 months.  Unbelievable 22 degrees! it was lovely.

At the end of the day, I  could sit for a while to enjoy papercraft and I finished the card in this post.

 I  used  Spring Blooms Stamp Set by Honey Bee Stamps. The sentiment is from Mr & Mrs Stamp Set  also from Honey Bee Stamps.


I added colours with Arteza water-based markers on Bristol smooth paper.

I stamped with Versafine  Onix Black ink which is amazing to work with watercolours.

oh ! And can you see the rhinestones? Those are fabulous and in the pack, you find 3 different sizes. Love those!

I have been playing with different colour pallets. Today I used different shades of green, watermelon and violet. 


For the records, I wanted to add a white card base but when I opened the last package of this cardstock I noticed that it was 180 grams!! Nooo, that's like paper so I had to use  300 grams black cardstock instead for the card base. 

I think the card base colour really affects the final look and feel of the card and I'm not sure if I like it or not. 

I loved how easily I stamped the floral arrangement  using a masking technique 
oh!! and this card is Huge is 5.5 " x 8" inches.

Today my daughter Emma turned 5. We will have a birthday party on June 3rd but I decided to please her today and as she wanted to go for a walk I took my 2 little children with their trikes and we went for a walk!  if you are mum you know what this means... this means sweating and running like a demon after them... 

 Then we arrived home and I was red as a tomato. It was soooo hot here, I couldn't believe it as even summer used to seem cold for my latin bones. I think I'm evolving into something else and today  I was melting. 

I then cooked lunch.. what a yummy pasta I made! seriously it was so good and we had lunch in the garden. My children love it  but  if you are a housewife - mum you might know what implies
having lunch with your children in the garden... it is about 1 hour doing everything to make them focus on the food, carrying plates, drinks and then cleaning it all.

With lunch finished we got a dessert. My children didn't need help with that one as they love crepes with banana and sugar-free syrup.

Next ...  I grabbed my toolbox which is huge and heavy and I also put a tent for them to play  "a la casita ", this is a cute name in Spanish to play inside the tent pretending that was their home.  

 I also bought a very cool sand table and holly caw it was hard to put together.  I wrongly thought that
if they could play peacefully then  I could be able to craft in my garden office while watching them from there but this wasn't possible at all.   :(

There was so much going on the garden with these two little children.  Harris ( my youngest son - 2 years old) was eating sand and grabbing the gravel around my craft room and blocking the drainage with it ...Noooo!!!  he is a baby but he is capable of mass destruction. He put my iPhone in the toilet and broke my iPad screen the same day. He looks like a real smiley angel.

So if I don't keep an eye on him he will end up damaging something or on the emergency room for drinking detergent as he did a while ago  :(  He managed to grab the floor cleaning bottle and he drunk a wee bit while I was cleaning a mess he did with markers !!! Noooo. I saw him in action and I almost had a heart attack!!! 

Emma ( my little daughter) was screaming "my brother got poisoned" as that's what I was saying that when I called the hospital.   Emma is such a gracious little girl.

But NO worries he is 100% fine and full of energy. At the hospital, they checked the components of the detergent and they said he will absolutely fine because I diluted the detergent with a lot of water in the bottle.  I was exhausted that day and trust me,  here in my house, there is not a day without action.

Anyway, when I was about to be free today (if I can call that freedom ) I  received a phone call from my hubby. He needed my help as his card auto-lock system went crazy and he couldn't turn it on. It was too late to call a local garage or anyone for help ... Arggg!! 

I had to put my children in the car and I went to the rescue and I won't have the car tomorrow or until he gets his car fixed... arg!! I think the battery in the car key is over but then we couldn't find the battery in any shop here!

My life has been pretty much like that the last 5 years.   I also was in the process of applying for a Visa to stay in the UK ... This is a long process, it is expensive,  mentally and emotionally demanding. Seriously! My hubby asked me what was worse if the visa process or the house hunting process... both crazy and challenging.  I'm so glad the hardest part of both processes is over and Im also working night shift some days during the week.

I never mention anything about my life but there you got an idea about behind the scenes. :)

So I'm posting my card very late UK time as I also had tea and children showers before taking pictures,  editing them and writing this post etc .  It is  ( 1:35 am here ) I should be called the midnight stamper as I'm always blogging and working late at night and I want my post to go live now.

That's all for today! Thanks for stopping by and to receive my blog post or videos directly to your invoice please Subscribe to my blog here! or my Youtube Channel here!


Many hugs for you
