Merry Caroling Mice with Gemma

Today I have a CAS Christmas card to share, featuring the Merry Mice stamp set. I began by creating a background print with my gel plate and distress oxide inks in the colours speckled egg, peacock feathers and chipped sapphire. I inked the panel then went over the colours with a brayer to blend them together. I took a print using a piece of smooth white card. The gel plate gives lots of texture to the print, with some white specks which give the look of snow. From the print, I die cut a large circle and adhered it to my card...

Enjoy the Little Things with Gemma

I’m enjoying creating more autumnal cards now and I love the rich warm colours of the season. My card today features the happy squirrels from the Oh Nuts! stamp set, along with the Oak Tree Scene die. I began with the background. I die cut the Oak Tree Scene die from white card. I then ran the die through the machine a couple more times, cutting a piece of green cardstock for the grass and brown woodgrain card for the tree. On my card base, I adhered a piece of patterned blue paper for a soft sky. This is...

Next Door Gnomes with Gemma

Today I’ve got a fun card to share featuring the Next Door Gnomes stamp set and Gallery #5 slimline die. Both these sets are from the fabulous new release. I began by working on the background, die cutting the Gallery Frame #5 die from white card. In one pass through the die cutting machine, this clever die cuts both the scalloped frame and the inner frame piece. These pieces can be used separately or together so it gives lots of design possibilities. On the scalloped frame, I blended on distress oxide ink in mowed lawn and added water droplets...

Circle Scenes with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a circle scene card and an alternative way to use the fabulous background stamps from the new release. I began by stamping the Pathway background stamp with a grey ink. I then used some basic circle dies to die cut three different sized circle scenes from the panel. I stamped images from the Meadow Bunnies and the Picked for You stamp sets using a black ink, then I coloured the images and circle scenes with copic markers. I arranged the circle scenes on a white card base. To bridge the gap between the scenes, I die...

Little Rainbow Painters with Gemma

Today I have a card showcasing the new Little Painters set from Hello Bluebird. This set was offered as a free with purchase and proved very popular. I wanted to show how this set could be used in a non-Easter way. Rainbows are a very popular symbol at this time of the pandemic so I thought the bunnies could be painting a rainbow. I began with the background. I added a blend of distress oxides directly on my card base, using worn lipstick and squeezed lemonade. Next, I die cut the After the Rain scene die twice from white card....
