Monster Hugs and Kisses

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…

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…

I have a series of cards today that were prompted by my ever-growing patterned paper stash. Making multiple variations of a simple design like this one can definitely help reduce the stash and gain you a stash of thank you cards. The Concord & 9th Big Thanks die is a perfect centre piece. I chose one of the gorgeous papers from the Simple…
