I’m channelling my inner Sandy Allnock over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today. I have a bright, bold, cute and quick ninja thank you card. I used a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle die to cut out a piece of Chilli Pepper card stock and mounted this to an A2 top folding white card base. I then used a Lawn Fawn…

I have a simple one layer card over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today, featuring the gorgeous Bear & Bird set from Waffle Flower. I’ve seen some wonderful inspiration using this set but today I kept it simple with some watercolours. I started off by stamping the main characters from the set onto the centre of a piece of…

It’s my turn for some scholarly inspiration over on the Seven Hills Crafts Blog today. The end of the school year is rapidly approaching and this card was two challenges in one. Firstly, I needed a graduation card. Secondly, I needed a masculine graduation card. Teaming some Lawn Fawn Paper Bag cardstock with the Smart Cookie stamp set and Scripty Congrats…

I’m up with a guest post over on the Heffy Doodle blog today, sharing a card with you today that prominently features not one of the main characters in the Elephant of Surprise set, but one of those additional accessories – the balloon. These additional accessories shouldn’t be overlooked as they can often create fantastic backgrounds! Imagine a hundred…

Hello, I’m filling in for a fellow DT member and sharing some sushi love with the fabulous MFT Sushi Date stamp set over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog. Starting out with an A6 top folding white card base, I masked off a portion of the card with some Post-It tape. I then blended on some Abandoned Coral, Candied Apple…

I’m over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today and this week’s set of cards uses the beautiful Altenew Blooming Bouquet stamp set. I set aside a couple of hours and just had some fun with my watercolours. Sympathy cards are never the easiest by at least they are beautiful, right? I started out with four A6 watercolour panels, clear…

I have a friend who loves manga and all things ninja, so I knew I had to make her a set of cards featuring these ninjas from the Altenew Ninja Invasion. This set of cards is over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today. It’s been a while since I made a card without bringing out my Copics, but these cards…

Hand Drawn Birthday Florals

It’s Wednesday again and I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with some floral inspiration for you, featuring Avery Elle’s Hand Drawn Florals. Sometimes, a stamp set just begs to be Copic coloured and this was one that drew my eye for exactly this reason. If you’re not keen on Copic colouring, these could just as easily be coloured…

The card I bring you today is based around three colours: black, red and green. One of my friends just got a new job and these are the colours of her new company.   On some Bristol Smooth card stock, I stamped out several different flowers and leaves from the Altenew Hello Sunshine stamp set using some Versafine Black Onyx…
