Papercraft Inspirations issue 161 is out on 29 December in the UK

You’ll find plenty to fall in love with in the latest issue of Papercraft inspirations, from vintage valentine makes using beautiful bird printables to vibrant floral cards that use heat embossing to add a luxury finish. There’s also instant crafty fun to be had with your mask set gift to create original results that you can use with all your embossing folders. At Pi HQ, we’re always trying new techniques, and this month we’ve gone crazy about colouring. We asked Kat Waskett to create an Inktense pencil masterclass to inspire you to create some fantastic colour effects, too.

Happy crafting!
