Wiser Birthday Wishes

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking 23 January, 2019 Tags: , , , , No Comments

I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with some owlishly wiser birthday inspiration! I’m a sucker for owl stamps and the MFT Forever and Owlways was no exception. I started out by masking a circle onto a white background panel. I used Distress Oxide Inks in Faded Jeans, Mermaid Lagoon and Broken China to create a radiating sky, splattering…

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!

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!

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,…

These cards were made with two stamp sets, two dies and six ink cubes and can easily be customised to any particular colour scheme.
