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…

Hello, I’m back over on the Heffy Doodle blog today with this tooth fairy card featuring the Absotoothly Awesome stamp set.

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…

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

When I saw that Avery Elle had released this Floating Wishes set, I immediately thought of watercolour and metallics! I started with an A2 watercolour cardstock panel die cut with a Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle. I arranged the celebrate sentiment and balloon from the Floating…

I’m over on the Heffy Doodle blog today with a card featuring the Oceans of Love stamp set. I think rays are fascinating creatures and I love going through the glass tunnels in aquariums. This was the feel I was going with for this card. I started out by repeatedly stamping the ray from the Oceans of Love set in some Copic-friendly ink…

Like many card makers, I absolutely love this stamp set and just had to colour these characters up like Toothless and Hiccup! I started out by stamping…
