Birthday Cards, Cardmaking Friday 20th August, 2021 Tags: , , , No Comments

Hello! I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with some more colouring with the Anita Jeram Colorado Craft Company’s Happy Day stamp set. Last week I experimented with watercolours, today I’m on more familiar ground with my Copics. I’m keeping it simple today with a one layer card, so I stamped out the main image in some Lawn Fawn…

I’m back on the Heffy Doodle blog today with this coloured scene card featuring one of my most favourite stamp sets: the Happy Snappy Crocs!

Welcome Little One

I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with something a little different for me. The Anita Jeram stamps by Colorado Craft Company have caught my eye and when I needed a new baby card for a friend, the New Baby stamp set was perfect! What better way to welcome a little one into the world? Now, I’m not…

Hay There Birthday

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking Friday 2nd July, 2021 Tags: , , , No Comments

I love a challenge when it comes to creating cards. This week’s challenge was to create a birthday card for a horse mad relative, which I thought would be a lot harder than it was (I had visions of modifying unicorn stamps)! The only horse stamp I had was the Lawn Fawn Hay There stamp, so I created a simple…

Hootiful Birthday

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking Monday 21st June, 2021 No Comments

Sometimes, all you need is a simple card to wish someone a happy day. You don’t always have to go full out with the scene colouring. In reality, I find the clean and simpler cards sometimes harder to fill in terms of the background as there is a fine balance between unfinished and filled. My card today over on the…

Chimply Congrats!

I’m back on the Heffy Doodle blog today with this congrats card, featuring the Chimply the Best stamp set and a couple of Heffy dies. My focus today is using die cuts to help create those background scenes, rather than having to completely colour one in. I started off by stamping out the cheeky monkeys from Chimply the Best in…

Cardmaking, Christmas Cards Friday 4th June, 2021 Tags: , , No Comments

It’s been a while since I’ve crafted face-to-face with my niece so when we were finally allowed to meet, I gave her the choice of cards she wanted to make. She chose ‘a Christmas card for friends Down Under’ as she loved the series of gift card holders I did featuring the Lawn Fawn Woodland Critter Huggers dies and wanted…
