Word Buddies Woodland Celebration with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a way to use slimline dies on regular sized cards, with a little help from the Word Buddies Woodland stamp set. My top folding landscape notecard is A6 is size. This is the UK equivalent to an A2 notecard, and is 148mm x 105mm (4-1/8 x 5-7/8). I began by working on the background. I die cut the Summer Woods Scene slimline die from white card. I won’t need the slimline frame on this card so this can be kept for a different project. I added colour to the pieces with distress oxide inks, then details...

A Pig For All Seasons with Gemma

The Hello Bluebird pigs are some of my favourite critters. As there are lots of great images to choose from, I decided to create a card with four seasonal pigs. My card base is 5.25 inches square. I’m really enjoying square card bases at the moment and this format works well for the four scenes I’m creating. I used a square die set from my stash to die cut four white card squares. On each of the squares, I used distress oxide inks to add colour to represent each of the seasons. All my pigs are coloured with copic...

Pig Out with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a very CAS look at the new Pig Out stamp set from Hello Bluebird, which is part of the May 2021 release. There are many more wonderful critters and scene building images included in this set. As my niece loves both rainbows and pigs, I just had to create a rainbow puddle for the pig to jump in. I used the coordinating die for the puddle to cut a window in a white card panel. On my card base, I blended a rainbow of distress oxide inks. This is easy to achieve with just 4 colours...

Mushroom House with Gemma

Today I’m showcasing the brand new Mushroom House background stamp. This background is such fun and works really well with a host of different Hello Bluebird stamp sets. My card features the Garden Party stamp set, and I was inspired by a card I made last year which features this set and an evening sky. I stamped the Mushroom House background onto white card, then masked the house and ground so I could blend an evening sky with distress oxides. I used squeezed lemonade, dried marigold, worn lipstick, and chipped sapphire, flicking the panel with white acrylic paint to...

Easter Slimline with Gemma

Scene dies are very versatile and, with some minor additions, can work for any season. My card today features the Winter Walk Scene die, which I turned into a Spring Scene with a little help from the Pond Builder die set. I die cut the Winter Walk scene die twice from white card. I like to have two of the borders to give some depth to the scene. I also die cut parts of the scene again – the trees from woodgrain cardstock, the mountains from plaid patterned paper, and the ground pieces from green card. On my slimline...
