Facebook Live - Feline Spooky Halloween Special!!

Hi there!

Jo here just to let you know that the latest FB Live is now available to view at your leisure on YouTube!

Be sure to watch the video below as it shows how this card was made. There's also a supply list at the end of this post for the T4tD products I used.

I should just mention that the Digi Collection featured here is still available for free with any purchase in the T4TD shop. You'll have to be quick though as the offer expires at Midnight tonight!!

I have edited it a bit so it's not so long :) If you do want to see the full length version it is still available on our Facebook page.

In this weeks FB Live video I demonstrated how to make this shadow box card using the Box Clever Die set. 


 My images were printed onto super smooth cardstock and then adhered to some cheap cardstock to give them a bit of stability once they were used on my card. I coloured them with my Copic Markers and fussy cut them all out. The shapes were quite simple so cutting them out was relatively easy.

 I used the Box Clever Die to cut out the pieces for my Box card.
I assembled part of my card & suspended my cat & dog images onto acetate to make it look like they were flying or floating.

My background was the haunted house image from the set and I show in video how I coloured the spooky sky.

I added the Feline Spooky sentiment and some of the treat images as embellishments to the front and side panels of my card. I used Stardust Stickles to make them glittery.

Finally I suspended my cute spider from the top centre of my card window with some acetate.

Links to all the products I used are listed below.

PLEASE NOTE THAT OUR FB LIVE EVENTS WILL BE ON A THURSDAY at 8PM GMT FROM NOW ON! I'd be thrilled if you could join me. :) 

If you have any ideas for what you'd like me to demonstrate using T4TD products then please do let me know either via our FB or IG pages! 

Take care & Yappy Howlloween!

Second Youtube Turorial in our Howlloween Series!!

Can you call two video's a series? :) 

Well here it is the second video using the new Yappy Howlloween Digi Stamp Collection.

In the video there is a super speedy copic colouring demonstration and I show how I created my spooky sky background.

This card is super easy, really cute and fun to make.

There's still time to get this great collection free when you purchase any other item from the store which makes this a really inexpensive project to do with the kids over the holiday!

Here are the products I used.

I hope you enjoy the video and can join me for my FB Live event over on FB tonight at 8PM GMT.

2 New Yappy Howlloween Card Tutorials from Jo

Hi there!! Jo here sharing some cards from the new Digi Stamp Collection 'Yappy Howlloween'.

This set is super cute and is also completely free when you purchase anything else from the shop!! Woop wooooop!!

I couldn't wait to play with these sets. What's really cool about them is that when you make your purchase the images are available immediately to download to your computer. No waiting for the postman to arrive!! Yaaay! 

You can also resize your stamps to fit your preferred card base or make them large enough to create a spooky banner with!! Cool eh?

So here are the cards I made.

First is the Collection namesake Yappy Howlloween. I couldn't resist the pun!:) 

I used Distress Oxide Inks on my background to create a night sky. I added splatters of white acrylic paint to add some stars.

I coloured my spooky pup, witches hat, treat bag & treats in Copic Markers. I added some sparkle with Nuvo Glitter Drops.

I gave my image and sentiment some stability by adding to some cardstock & then fussy cutting my pup ghost out. I raised both up on foam pads. I gave his nose a 'wet look' appearance with some glossy accents!

My second card is Trick or Squeak! :)

Be sure to watch the video tutorial below, it shows how this card was made! There's also a supply list at the end of this post for the T4TD products used.

I love this little mouse with his pumpkin. I wanted him to have an Autumnal background so this stencil I had in my stash was perfect.

I used an A6 top folding card blank. First I masked off the base of my card & then used distress oxide inks to blend through my leafy stencil.

My little mouse was coloured with Copic Markers and then adhered to some cardstock before fussy cutting him out.

I layered my sentiment on card too before cutting it out. I then used foam pads to add both my image and sentiment to my card base.

Stencilling directly onto the card base is a really great way to create a Clean And Simple card. These were so easy and fun to make and because you can print your digi stamp mulitple times in one go they're perfect for batch card making.

I have a done a full tutorial video for both cards. The first one available is the Trick or Squeak tutorial. Subscribe to our YouTube Channel to be notified of any new videos and tutorials.

You can also find the T4TD products I used below.

I hope these cards inspired you to try digi stamps if you haven't used them before.
Have a Spooktacular day!! Jo x

New FB Live Tutorial 23-10-19 - Cute Penquin Christmas Card

Hi there!!!
Jo here just to let you know that the latest FB Live is now available to view at your leisure on YouTube.
In this weeks video I show you have to make this cute Christmas card with our Warm Winter Wishes Clear Stamp and Coordinating Dies.
I stamped, coloured and die cut my images from the Warm Winter Wishes Stamp and Die sets. In the video I talk you through how I coloured my tree to look like it had branches with snowy tips. I also talk about how to colour a black critter or object without it looking flat.
I stencilled my background using the Line ‘Em Up Stencil. I show you how I create this check effect and then stamp over it with the bauble stamp from the set to make my own patterned paper.
I finished my card with the Warm Winter Wishes sentiment and some Star Dust Stickles for that sparkly Christmas flourish!!
I also used the Smile Scalloped Frames Die Set to create my frame and the new Hello Rectangle Nesting Dies for my stencilled Background panel. These Dies add a beautiful decorative stitched edge to your die cut pieces.
Links to all the products I used are listed below.
I do a FB Live every Wednesday at 8PM GMT so please do join me next week for another tutorial. If you have any ideas for what you'd like me to demonstrate using T4TD products then please do let me know either via our FB or IG pages!
Take care & happy crafting!
