Chinese New Year 2021 with Gemma

Chinese New Year 2021 is the Year of the Ox. I always make a CNY card for my niece and nephew, and the Farmyard Little Bits are perfect for this year. I worked on my background first. I die cut the Gallery Frame #5, which is a slimline die, from some different card stock – white, embossed gold, and pearlescent red. I layered the gold scalloped outer frame over the white card frame, then adhered this onto my slimline card base. Next, I adhered the pearlescent red inner frame. On the three white card pieces, I adhered some patterned...

Snowy Wishes with Gemma

I’m sharing one of my favourite styles of CAS card today, using the new Bunny Hill stamp set. I love using the white space on a card to create a scene. With a pop of colour and some other elements, the negative space becomes its own part of the scene. On a white card base, I added masking tape in a diagonal line. I then used some blending brushes to add my distress oxide inks. You only need 4 colours to create a rainbow – abandoned coral, squeezed lemonade, tumbled glass and shaded lilac. The rest of the rainbow...

Let it Snow with Gemma

Today I have a CAS card to share using the new My Snowman stamp set. I began by embossing three background panels, using the Handmade Plaid background stamp and embossing glitters from WOW Embossing.

Simple shapes work best so I die cut a rectangle from each of my embossed panel and adhered them on to my card base. Next, I stamped and...

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...
