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…

Scene Colouring: Just Married

Cardmaking, Wedding Cards 1 February, 2021 Tags: , , , , , No Comments

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…

I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today letting the good times roll with this coaster-themed birthday card featuring a couple of sets from Avery Elle: Peek-a-Boo Coaster, Peek-a-Boo Pals and Speech Bubbles. I started with the background, blending on some Broken China and Faded Jeans Distress Oxide inks in a gradient. Once dry, I stamped the big coaster track stamp along the bottom in…

I’m over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with something a little more cheerful on this cold (and possibly snowy!) morning. 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. This was a relatively quick card to create, thanks to the…

Not many sleeps ’til Santa now! I have another festive card for you today and the last in my Scene Colouring series on the Heffy Doodle blog. This time, I coloured up some playful penguins in a snowy scene. One was halfway through building a snowman until he saw a friend who couldn’t reach the post box. What could he…

I’m back with the next card in my Scene Colouring series. I’m definitely in the Christmas mood and this card is inspired by one of the all-time great Christmas songs: When Santa Got Stuck Up the Chimney! Plus, it uses a non-Christmas stamp set – Teacher’s Pet – to get the most out of your stash! This one needed a…

I have a festive ‘Jingle All the Way’ scene card over on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today, featuring the MFT ‘Tis the Season stamp set and some no-line Copic colouring. I started out by stamping the Santa holding his sack of goodies onto some blending cardstock using some Lawn Fawn Jellyfish ink. This combo is perfect for no-line alcohol…

It’s rapidly approaching that time of year when I start to get a bit anxious over having enough Christmas cards to send out come December. Every year I say I will start early and make at least one a month all year round, but I never manage to achieve that aim! This is my fifth card of the year and…
