There has never been a more exciting time to be researching into cardmaking as a hobby. Not only do we stock some fantastic products to help you get started, but we also have an ultra-fabulous set on the way that could be right up your street. Let us introduce you to the Ultimate Cardmaking Compendium, your new papercrafting pal!
What is the Ultimate Cardmaking Compendium?
We know how important it is to have a stocked up stash, but also how easy it is to whittle that stash down when you’re crafting, so we’ve stuffed a three-tiered box to the brim with cardmaking goodies and essentials. In fact, there are over 3,500 elements in the box and we’ll give you a run-down of every single thing in just a second, but let’s just take a minute to let that sink in… 3,500 elements!
This massive box of goodies has been specifically designed for the beginner in mind and provides a range of newbie-friendly products, as well as some more pro items for those that are slightly more experienced. Even though this is a beginner box, there is absolutely no reason why current cardmaking fans can’t invest!
What’s inside the box?
There’s a ton of items inside this box – so much that we couldn’t possibly list every single one, so here’s a list of some things that we think you absolutely need to know about:
Mini scoreboard and tool
72 sheets of coloured card
Plastic envelope templates
10 x Nesting Oval Dies
Quilled Daisy Die
A selection of sentiment dies
Over 70 reels of ribbon in different textures
Hundreds of pearls and gems
12 resin frames
Of course, there are so many more bits and bobs to use, like embossing folders, even more dies, paper, tools, charms – the list just goes on! It really is a total treasure trove for cardmaking creatives or those who want to stock up their stash. There may also be some exclusive items included, but you definitely didn’t hear that from us!
The Colour Wheel
This whole box is centred around the idea of the Colour Wheel, which is the arrangement of colours in a circular fashion to help you create combinations that make sense. It shows you how colours are arranged along the spectrum (red, yellow, green, blue, and so on) and then identify them as primary, secondary and tertiary. This means it tells you the basic primary colours and the effect of mixing them together to create the secondary colours, plus the effect of mixing those secondary colours to make the tertiary colours.
If you’d like a bit more information about the Colour Wheel and colour theory in general, you can take a look at our handy blog post. There’s also a DVD included in the box to give you a bit more info, so you have no need to worry about wrapping your head around the concept.
Keep your eyes peeled tomorrow (October 23rd) for the official launch of this brilliant box. We hope that you’re just as excited as we are for the Ultimate Cardmaking Compendium and we can’t wait to see what you create with it.
