Helpful Tips

I was honored to be Club Scrap's Guest Artist this month showcasing the beautiful Sea Breeze card collection. You can see these fun beach themed cards in their entirety hereI wanted to share a few helpful tips and tricks I've learned in my crafting adventures. 

1. When adhering embossed panels use Scor-tape. This double sided tape is super strong.  You can push the tape into the embossed areas for better adhering. 
2. Edge your fussy cut images with a marker.  This give the image sharper edges. 
3. Who doesn't have sticker sheets where all the vowels are gone? I use the left over stickers for adhering wrapped ribbon ends to the back of panels. 
4. I buy adhesive foam sheets in bulk and cut them to fit the panel I intend to elevate. Try to use similar colors as your project card, at certain angles the color will show. 
5. Add depth and shine to small stamped images or die cuts with Nuvo Crystal drops using a needle-tip applicator
Paper Smooches "Hope" die. Club Scrap stamp. Impression Obsession sunburst stamp.

6. Ink the inside flat surface of an embossing folder prior to embossing your paper. Use a water brush to distribute ink for a softer watercolor look. 

Club Scrap papers, tags. Making Memories star brads. Tonic Nuvo drops. Cuttlebug embossing folder.

Hopefully you found some of these tips and tricks helpful. 
Have a fabulous day!
