My Review

If you love card making  this is the book for you.

If you thought you knew everything about making cards..think again.

Stamping, colour and brilliant techniques that will make your projects POP!! are beautifully demonstrated and simply explained.

I have been card making for a while now and this book is perfect for those of us who need inspiration and brilliant ideas. If you are in a lull and lost your mojo then this book will help you recover.

I loved the die cutting, flower making, and even the most simplest designs are effortlessly stunning.  This book really does give great ideas and with ribbons, buttons and even quilling, each project is bound to make the recipient know you have thought about them.

Every occasion and everyone have been thought of.. This book is superbly portrayed and expertly written.

I really had a great time making my cards and this book will be a permanent fixture on my craft table.

Highly recommended

These are shaker cards ..filled with sequins and beads



This card is stamped then an ‘overlay’ is added with the stamped butterfly cut out using a die cutter.
