rock the house

Take your cardmaking to the next level with our rocker cards – they’re so much fun to make and your friends and family will love watching them rock.

This way your cards will be perfectly balanced!

Cornelia Brockhouse, via email Hayley says : Well done for creating a technical card in a short amount of time Cornelia, it’s lovely. Congratulations on being First Past the Post this issue. Be the first to send us a photo of a card you’ve made using this month’s gift and you could win a mystery craft prize!…

“I love hearing your crafting stories and seeing your fab cards, so please write in and share them with me!” Editor Colour me happy I have always been very wary about stamping because I worry about colouring techniques and getting them right. However, determined to conquer my fears, I recently invested in the complete new Hunkydory colouring range of pens and inks. I saw this set of tractor stamps and decided I would be brave and make a card for my two-year-old grandson who loves tractors and the colour orange. I stamped the grass area and then used the stamp as a mask while I coloured the sky using three different blue ink pads. I coloured the tractor using Hunkydory markers and cut it out, then finished the card with a sentiment from…
