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....

Fly Over the Rainbow with Gemma

Today I have a card to share using the Maverick stamp set and the After the Rain scene die. These sets work perfectly together. I began with the background. I die cut the After the Rain scene die from white card, then added a blend of blue distress oxide inks to the clouds. The scene die cuts three pieces for the rainbow but it’s easy to colour them in to get the whole spectrum of colours, using copic markers. I lightly blended on some tumbled glass distress oxide ink directly onto my card base, then adhered the After the...

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...
