Chevron Happy Birthday with Gemma

Hello and a happy new year to you!  For my post today, I decided to make a masculine birthday card as I never seem to have enough of these on hand. I lean towards more typographic cards for masculine birthdays. I think you can’t go wrong with big bold sentiments and graphic designs. I began with the background. I chose an ombré of blue card, using the Basic Borders die set to cut strips with chevron edges. I secured these together at the back with washi tape. To add interest, I used the other chevron die from the Basic Borders die...

Flurries of Fun with Gemma

I’ve combined some of the fabulous October release to make a fun Christmas card to share today. I began by working on the background. The new Snowy Sky Scene and Winter Woods Overlay dies layer beautifully together. I die cut both scenes, adding colour with distress oxide inks. I used cracked pistachio, evergreen bough and blueprint sketch for the sky, and I added some weathered wood distress oxide ink to the edges of the trees. On the other pieces of the Snowy Sky Scene, I used some WOW Sparkling Snow embossing glitter to add some Christmas sparkle. I then layered all the pieces...

Fairy Treehouse with Gemma

I was so excited to see the Treehouse Scene die in the latest release from Hello Bluebird. This is definitely an all year round scene die and will work with many of the Hello Bluebird stamp sets.

The die cuts a frame, the tree and two ground pieces. I then ran the die through the machine again, this time with some brown woodgrain effect card to cut just...

Thankful For You with Gemma

I love the warm rich colours of autumn, so today I have a cozy fall card to share with you. I began with the background portion of the card. Using the Cozy Plaid background stamp, I stamped it with clear embossing ink on to a piece of kraft cardstock, then heat embossed with WOW Metallic Copper embossing powder. I trimmed down the panel and adhered a large strip of it onto my card base. I like to add a thinner strip of card to bridge the gap. A piece of copper glitter card is perfect. From the same colour of glitter...

Purrfect Halloween with Gemma

Hello, Gemma here today with a card featuring the fabulous new Tabitha stamp set. I love this set with all the sweet cats. Beginning with the background, I cut a piece of bright pink card to A2 notecard size. I blended on some distress oxides inks in Picked raspberry, seedless preserves, blueprint sketch, then added some black soot distress ink at the outer edges. I flicked the background with a mix of gold perfect pearls and water, which looks beautiful on the dark inked background. Once the panel was dry, I ran it through my die cutting machine with the...
