Happy Birthday Chicks

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking By 19th June, 2019 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

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…

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…

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’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!

Big Rainbow Thanks

Cardmaking, Thank You Cards By 15th May, 2019 Tags: , , , No Comments

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.

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…
