Creative play with a new “old” tool & lattice edge cards!

Well helllooooo my crafty friends. I snuck down to my craft room to play a bit yesterday, here are the results:

DCF 1.0

I even made 2 videos! The first is how to make the lattice edge braid on the edge of this card. BTW the can can girls stamp is from Lost Coast Designs. All you need is cardstock, scissors, a pencil and a ruler. A 45 degree angle is handy too if you have one, if not take a paper square and cut it from corner to corner and you are in business! Let’s make a lattice edge card:

Well, that was easy huh? I got rummaging around, as I often do, in my studio drawers and came across a tool I got years ago called a Roltap. It is like a tiny sponge brayer and I used it to do some nifty techniques, watch as I finish this card! I also dusted off the color dusters, stencil brushes and chalk!

So, then I got to thinking, I wonder if Colorbox still makes Roltaps because now I see how cool it is I want more so I have one head for each color family. No such luck, I guess I’ll have to come up with a frugal replacement…I’ll keep you posted! That’s it for me. If you have any questions on anything I posted today feel free to leave a comment, thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
