I’m back on the Heffy Doodle blog today continuing my theme of the last couple of cards: simple scenes. Not got time to go all out with the background? Just take a couple of elements from a set and create a simple scene, adding a central focal image popped up with foam tape for a little dimension. I’m using the…

I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today with something a little different for me. I wanted to challenge myself to create a card with no colouring – very challenging for me! I used the Concord & 9th Grateful for Everything stamp set with some coordinating Lawn Fawn inks and card stock. I started out by stamping the big flower arrangement…

Scene Colouring: Just Married

I took a break from whole card scenes for this next card in my Scene Colouring series, instead using a die to highlight a particular portion of a scene. It’s a great way to add an element to a card and as a bonus, doesn’t take as long as colouring a whole panel! My wedding-themed card today features the Happily…

My birthday card today features the Colorado Craft Company Big and Bold Sweet Friend Cupcake stamp set with a sentiment from the MFT Bitty Birthday Wishes set.

Now that Christmas is behind us, I wanted to make a start on this year’s birthday card stash. I wanted bright, colourful and full of happy animals!

Plus, it uses a non-Christmas stamp set – Teacher’s Pet – to get the most out of your stash! This one needed a…
