Masked Florals for Mother’s Day

By Card Making and Paper Crafts Contributor Heidi from the blog Blue Scallop Creations.

There are some really fun techniques for stamping out there, but by far, my favorite is masking.  I love that you can have the look of depth and volume on the front of a card, but still have it lie flat for easy mailing.  For my project today, I’ll be doing a simple masking technique using a floral stamp from Hampton Art’s Clear Layer Flower Amaze.

Welcome Our Newest Blogger Heidi!!

I am so excited to welcome our newest Think Crafts Contributor Heidi! I know you will love all of the card marking and paper craft projects that she will share with us. Find out more about her and check out her blog! 

Heidi will be sharing card making and papercrafting projects.  Her signature style is clean, simple, and graphic, with pops of bright color.  She believes a few easy design principles are key in achieving that “pleasing to the eye” look in card design.  She often will find inspiration for her cards in everyday things like clothing, signs, or even the colors in food.

Years ago, Heidi never thought of herself as a crafty person and is amazed at how much she loves this hobby. She originally started off trying a few online card challenges, then eventually dove in to start her own blog.  Since then, she has expanded her blog with video tutorials and is having so much fun with all of it!

When not keeping up with her busy family, you can find Heidi in her “happy space” creating cards and organizing her supplies.  You can also find her over at her blog, Blue Scallop Creations where she shares card making tutorials, favorite products, and organizational tips and tricks.

How to Make a Moss Stitch Washcloth

By Guest Blogger Barbara

My name is Barb, and I started doing crafts during high school while taking a home economics course. The class taught me how to crochet, knit, cross-stitch, macrame and sew. I have been doing these crafts for over 35 years and I still love to learn new techniques and challenging myself. I don’t know everything, but I love to learn and I’m always excited to try new things.

Visit Barb at her blog, One Crafty Gal today! 

I love to make washcloths, not only because they are useful and are so much better than the rough ones you buy at the store, but because they give me an opportunity to try new stitches. Whether it’s crocheting or knitting, making a washcloth allows you to practice a new stitch or one you have not used in a while without making a huge commitment. You can make a small mistake here and there and no one will ever know. Once you finish the washcloth you can confidently take on a larger project because you’ve gotten some great practice.
