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!

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…

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…

Today’s card is for a friend that just moved into a new home. The Lawn Fawn Toadally Awesome set is perfect for saying congrats!   I started out by creating a circular mask from some acetate and a Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle die so I could use a stencil. I used some Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink to blend on a gradient within the circle….

I’ve been playing with one of the newest additions to the the Avery Elle Peek-a-boo sets – Summer Pals. These two little sharks (ignoring that one might just be a dolphin…) are eyeing each other up across the ocean! I started out by ink blending on some Salty Ocean Distress Oxide ink onto some white card panels. I splattered these with water and…

Plus One Bundle of Joy

Cardmaking, Congratulations Cards By 29th May, 2019 Tags: , , , No Comments

I was given the challenge to create some new baby cards this week by a family member, so I made two mini scene cards based around the Lawn Fawn Plus One stamp set. I started out with two A6 panels of Lawn Fawn Sticky Note cardstock. For some background detail, I stamped one with a small star from the Plus One stamp set and…
