I Melt For You

Hi there! It’s Tobi Crawford here with a fun summery card… Nothing says “Summer” like ice cream and pretty colours!      I started with the patterned paper (scallops) and got my colour scheme from that!  I used Hero Arts layering stamps that gave the ice cream and the cones that realistic effect.    The colours I used are:  Seaweed, Strawberry, and Flax.     

Rainbow Hearts

Hi everyone, it’s Tobi Crawford here with a rainbow-inspired card. It’s funny but I consider my favourite colour to be RAINBOW.. Does that make sense?

A sweet treat for Valentine’s Day

Hi there!  It’s Tifany here from Ink Blots by TRD and today I’m sharing a delicious treat with you!   Okay, it’s not easy to share homemade, chocolate-dipped peanut butter balls through the internet…but I can at least share the recipe with you. (And the recipe makes plenty to share with friends and neighbors.)  You can find the recipe HERE.  I don’t pretend to be some master chocolatier – these aren’t the prettiest things. (In fact, my friends and I call them my “peanut butter blobs”.)  But they sure do taste good! Once you’ve got all […]
