A Herd of Birthday Bunnies

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking 31 July, 2019 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with a cute little bunny birthday celebration! This uses three different sets – Starry Scene, We Herd and Essential Sentiments – from three different companies – Avery Elle, Waffle Flower and My Favorite Things – and was partly inspired by this set of cards from Yainea. It’s such a great and simple…

Oh Deer! I’ve Missed Your Birthday!

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking 24 July, 2019 Tags: , , , , No Comments

Hello, I’m back again today over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog with a couple of my favourite Neat & Tangled sets. I was saddened to see the Oh Deer set is being retired, so be quick if you want it! I used this and the Lumberjack Love set to create these set of cards for belated birthday greetings. I…

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking 17 July, 2019 Tags: , , , , , , , No Comments

Hello, I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today for my usual weekly slot. I have a bright birthday card featuring the Avery Elle Peek-a-Boo Summer Pals set. Perfect for our recent summery weather! I started by stamping out the toucan, frog and flamingo (and their coordinating arms/legs/wings!) from the set with some MFT Extreme Black ink onto some blending…

It’s a Wild Roar of a Party!

Hello, crafters! Today I’m featuring the Mama Elephant Wild Roar stamp set over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog. You all know I love these sets for practicing my alcohol marker colouring and, whilst they make take a while to finish, you have a feature piece to put straight on the centre of a card. It’s a good way to get…

Birthday Balloon Birds

Birthday Cards, Cardmaking 26 June, 2019 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

Today on the SHC blog I have a project that extends the use of your stamps. The Avery Elle Love Is In the Air stamp set is very love/Valentines themed, so I challenged myself to make a birthday card. Paired with the Concord & 9th Simple Serif Alphabet Dies, I think I achieved a card that could even be masculine! I started…

Happy Birthday Chicks

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…

Toadally Awesome New Pad

Cardmaking, Congratulations Cards 12 June, 2019 Tags: , , , , , , No Comments

Today’s card is for a friend that just moved into a new home. The Lawn Fawn Toadally Awesome set is perfect for saying congrats!   I started out by creating a circular mask from some acetate and a Lawn Fawn Stitched Circle die so I could use a stencil. I used some Broken China and Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink to blend on a gradient within the circle….

A Sharky Summer Pals Hello

Cardmaking, General Cards 5 June, 2019 Tags: , , , , No Comments

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…

Plus One Bundle of Joy

Cardmaking, Congratulations Cards 29 May, 2019 Tags: , , , No Comments

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 started out with two A6 panels of Lawn Fawn Sticky Note cardstock. For some background detail, I stamped one with a small star from the Plus One stamp set and…

Jawsome Birthday Tank Card

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! I started out by stamping the characters from both sets in some MFT Extreme Black ink onto some blending cardstock. I then coloured them in with my alcohol markers, keeping to bright greens, oranges and…

Big Rainbow Thanks

Cardmaking, Thank You Cards 15 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. I chose one of the gorgeous papers from the Simple…
