Meowy Christmas!

Cardmaking 19 December, 2018 Tags: , , , , No Comments

Happy Wednesday! I’m sharing one last handmade Christmas card with you today. This is probably my most favourite of those I made this year so I saved the best until last! I’ve said this already when I posted my last card featuring this set, but these Mama Elephant Oh Kitty Tree stamps are purrrrfect for practicing my colouring!

Krafty Last Minute CAS Christmas Cards

Cardmaking 12 December, 2018 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

Last week saw one last effort to create some clean and simple (CAS), quick but stunning homemade Christmas cards. I love the classic kraft look with traditional festive colours so all of these cards I posted over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today follow the same simple design. I managed to create twenty cards following this same basic design. This one featuring the ‘Oh What Fun’ stamp set from Lawn Fawn is my favourite!

Happy Wednesday! I’m continuing the countdown to Christmas over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with the Mama Elephant So Many Snowmen set. Along with the cats, it’s a perfect set to practice your colouring. I teamed it up with the Puffy Holiday Sentiments to create this striking handmade Christmas card.

I’m over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today with a whole lot of kitty cats! I’m not a huge cat lover but the Mama Elephant Oh Kitty Tree stamp makes it really easy to create stunning cards. I stamped out the big cat tree with some MFT Extreme Black Hybrid Ink onto an A6 white blending card panel….

Never Too Old for Clubbing! with Heffy Doodle

Cardmaking 21 November, 2018 Tags: , , , , No Comments

I’m over on the Heffy Doodle blog today with a bit of a punny card. I have a friend who was complaining that she was way to old to go clubbing anymore and so the sentiment from the new release fit perfectly! I think this might just hold the record for the most amount of products used on one card,…

I’m taking a break from the festive crafts and posting a tropical thank you card over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today. These cards were made with two stamp sets, two dies and six ink cubes and can easily be customised to any particular colour scheme. For the mostly-green design, I started out with a white A6 card panel….

I’m back for my Wednesday slot over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with a couple of cards and a couple of tags featuring the super cute Avery Elle Polar Peek-a-Boo Pals set.

I coloured these in with my alcohol markers, sticking to a…

The cold has definitely hit us this past couple of days. In celebration, today’s card on the Seven Hills Crafts blog features these chilly little penguins getting ready for Christmas. Not to panic anyone but we only have 56 days (which means ~8 weekends!) to prepare! 🙂 I started by stamping out all the cute penguins and accessories in the…

Uniquely Wonderful

I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today with a really simple one layer card using the Mama Elephant Cat’s Meow stamp set. This was partly colouring practice for me and partly a colour play with the sentiment. Starting with an A6 white blending cardstock panel, I stamped out the background of cats from the Cat’s Meow set…
