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. I used Grape Crush, Aventurine and High Heels. I love to give my images an area on the card to ground them. This is great for CAS cards, where there isn’t a scene to place the characters. 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...

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...
