I’m stepping out of my CAS style slightly today over on the Heffy Doodle blog to bring you this cheeky thank you card featuring the Chimply the Best stamp set. This base layout is one of my go-to card designs when I have multiple small images and it only requires one or two dies (or more if you want to…

I’m back again on the Heffy Doodle blog with the next in my CAS series. I’m layering up the Circle Masquerade and Rays the Roof stencils, and also featuring the new My Little Angel stamps and Angel Heffy Cuts. I started with the best part – the Copic colouring!

Happy New Year to you all! I hope you managed to have a good break. The run up to Christmas was super busy for me and crafting had to take a little bit of a back seat for a while. I didn’t get a chance to share this non-traditional Christmas card I gave to my Postie (partly in apology for…

I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog again today with this cute, clean and simple one layer Christmas card featuring the Santa Bear stamp set from Avery Elle.

Hello, I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with some more Christmas inspiration. It’s an MFT week for me and at first I thought I was going to have to bin these backgrounds before they ever made it to a card base. Sometimes, you just have to keep going and it turns out okay in the end! I used…

Simple Backgrounds for CAS Cards

Cardmaking, General Cards, Thank You Cards 30 October, 2019 Tags: , , , No Comments

More often recently I am finding I am creating cards that move towards the CAS – clean and simple – style. Lots of white space, one layer and perhaps one central image. Sometimes, just adding a simple shaped background can frame your central image and create a focal point. Today, I used the Mama Elephant Fuzzy Hugs stamp set, two sentiment sets…

I started out with the…

I love the idea of your cards telling a story – a collection of ‘scenes’ if you like – and the comic book style is a great way of doing this. Today on the Seven Hills Crafts blog, I chose two jungle/safari sets from Lawn Fawn, Wild for You and Critters on the Savanna, to create an assortment of scenes….

I’m on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with this one layer winter scene featuring the Snow Friends stamp set from Mama Elephant’s latest release. I have really been into creating one layer scenes recently so I wanted to keep the design simple so the colouring would stand out. I started out by planning out my scene so I knew…

Hello. I’m back on the Seven Hills Crafts blog today with a happy little gnome birthday card! This one kind of reminds me of Gnomeo and Juliet. I used a bunch of Lawn Fawn products and the Oh Gnome! and Big Scripty Words stamp sets to create this scene card. I started off by stamping out the gnomes, toadstools, flowers…
