Just For Fun Cards, with Bonnie


It’s hard not to love all the cute dies and stamps arriving in the store. These four cards were designed with a few of my favorites.

We will be using embossing folders, inks, a little bit of colouring and lots of cute embellishments. I will show you a great way to die cut those stamps that come with matching dies as well as how you can alter your stamps to suit your needs.
Fun cards to make, fun cards to give!
