Hello. I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with one of my favourite floral sets: Concord & 9th’s Grateful for Everything. I have used this set multiple times but never get bored of colouring or creating differently themed cards. Today, it’s a birthday card and I’ve paired it with the MFT Bitty Birthday Wishes set for a great…

Hello. I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with a set of cards featuring the MFT Picture Perfect set. Combined with the Lawn Fawn Say Cheese, Again die, these cards are a great way to practice your alcohol marker colouring and put a smile on the recipient’s face! I started off by stamping out four of the images…

Out of this World Spaceship Scene

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking By 28th August, 2019 Tags: , , , No Comments

Hello. I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with a card that’s a little more masculine. I needed a spaced themed card with a birthday greeting and I’ve never done a galaxy background with my alcohol markers before so I thought it was time to give it a try! I started out by stamping the spaceman and a bunch…

Sorry I Totally Spaced on Your Birthday!

I’m back again on the Heffy Doodle blog with some galactic apologies for missing a birthday! What better way to say sorry than from outer space? Plus, this little alien guy is one of my most favourite HD characters! I used a couple of products from the latest release, the You’re Weird stamp set and the coordinating dies, the Spaced…

I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with a cute little bunny birthday celebration! This uses three different sets – Starry Scene, We Herd and Essential Sentiments – from three different companies – Avery Elle, Waffle Flower and My Favorite Things – and was partly inspired by this set of cards from Yainea. It’s such a great and simple…

I’m back again on the Heffy Doodle blog, sharing more galactic inspiration with the new release! Since I saw the big moon from the You’re Weird stamp set, this card has been screaming to be made! Paired with the astronauts and planets from the Spaced Out set, this scene came together fast. I started out with an A6 watercolour background…

Hello, I’m back again today over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with a couple of my favourite Neat & Tangled sets. I was saddened to see the Oh Deer set is being retired, so be quick if you want it! I used this and the Lumberjack Love set to create these set of cards for belated birthday greetings. I…

Hello, I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today for my usual weekly slot. I have a bright birthday card featuring the Avery Elle Peek-a-Boo Summer Pals set. Perfect for our recent summery weather! I started by stamping out the toucan, frog and flamingo (and their coordinating arms/legs/wings!) from the set with some MFT Extreme Black ink onto some blending…

Monster Hugs and Kisses

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking By 3rd July, 2019 Tags: , , , No Comments

I had three requirements for today’s card on the SHC Blog: 1) bright colours, 2) can be sent to a boy or a girl, and 3) it had to use the Concord & 9th Monster Love set. This one’s been sitting in my stash for a little while and it’s too cute to stay there! I started out by stamping…

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking By 26th June, 2019 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

Today on the SHC blog I have a project that extends the use of your stamps. The Avery Elle Love Is In the Air stamp set is very love/Valentines themed, so I challenged myself to make a birthday card. Paired with the Concord & 9th Simple Serif Alphabet Dies, I think I achieved a card that could even be masculine! I started…

I have a striking birthday card today on the SHC blog featuring some homemade background paper and the MFT Birthday Chicks stamp set. There are several products I use to create striped backgrounds like this one – the Altenew Classy Stripes stencil, the Concord & 9th Stripes and Sayings stamp or MFT Black and White Stripes Paper are just a couple of them. Six months…

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking By 22nd May, 2019 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

I’m back today with a fun underwater scene card combining two Lawn Fawn stamp sets: Duh Nuh and You Are Sublime. An extra layer of acetate makes it more tank-like! I started out by stamping the characters from both sets in some MFT Extreme Black ink onto some blending cardstock. I then coloured them in with my alcohol markers, keeping to bright greens, oranges and…

Floral Mermaid: Flora and Fauna

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking By 24th April, 2019 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

One of the bonuses of having a sort out of your stamps is that you find some older sets that perhaps you didn’t get quite as much use out of them that you should. My friend Lesley Oman (owner of Heffy Doodle and HungryHeffy) often plays Stamp Roulette to give the muse a few prompts with some unusual combinations. Now…

Hello! I’m over on the Heffy Doodle blog today with this watercoloured, underwater scene card featuring the Oceans of Love stamp set. Imagine walking through one of those tunnels in the aquarium and all the fish are swimming around you – that was what I was aiming for! I started out by stamping all the ocean creatures from the Oceans…
