Supplies:

The above links will take you to Oriental Trading Company who generously donate craft materials to make these tutorials possible. If you shop there make sure you thank them for their support of The Frugal Crafter and tell them Lindsay sent you! Watch the video to see how this card is made and the image is colored!

The bow maker that I used in today’s video can be purchased from my shop. My husband just made a new batch of Bow Making Jigs and they are ready to ship! Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. You are such a inspiration. Have you tried art inspiration watercolor stamp series? I want to buy some but oh soooo expensive. Do you have another idea on how to get the look of theses stamps on a frugal budget?

  2. Love the poppy but I am on a stamp budget right now. Could do it with one of my other big stamps. Your videos are such an inspiration and I learn a lot from you. Now can you make the days longer so I can get it all done? LOL

  5. Initially I thought that flower was 3D. Very surprised to find out it was not. Gorgeous flower, gorgeous card!

    Great tip, too, to make the envelope first so you can use the scraps on the cards.

    That envelope punch board is great for making mason jar shapes. There are some great tutes on youtube. I made mine large enough to accomodate a post-it note pad. They are adorable. Might sell well at a craft fair too.

  8. Simply beautiful! The colors really pop!

    Just as an FYI, your subscribers in the south may have trouble using hot glue on cards in the summer months. It’s been over 106 degrees here for a time and the glue can soften, ooze & slip while in the mail. Don’t ask me how I know!

  9. Love it. I am so excited to try your techniques with my Prisma pencils. Do you ever use water color pencils? I would love to see a tutorial with those.
    Hugs,

    • I am not sure…probably 6mm rings and the crimps were from an assortment from Blue Moon Beads, the smallest size in the package;)
