Sweet Friend with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card made with the Strawberry Basket die set and Sweet Friend Words. I decided to make a background pattern with the strawberries. I die cut the strawberries, leaves and large flowers from some gel plate prints I made a while ago. I used distress oxides to create these. I’ll list the colours I used below. As the prints were a thinner paper, I adhered each one to a thicker white card die cut, for stability. Behind the strawberries, I added some dark brown card, to show through the holes as seeds. I adhered the die...

Strawberry Patch with Gemma

Today I’m sharing a card using the adorable new Strawberry Patch stamp set. I used one of my own sketches, which can be found here. This card is based on sketch #009. I began by stamping out the images from the Strawberry Patch stamp set, then colouring them with copic markers. I then cut them out with the coordinating dies. Next, I worked on the background. I used some stitched strip dies from my craft stash to cut some strips of patterned paper. I arranged these on my card base, following the sketch. I stamped a sentiment from the...

Today I’m sharing a card using the Vegetable Garden stamp set. I love the fun to-ma-toes sentiment in this set, so decided to make it the feature.

For the O’s in the sentiment, I die...

Jungle King with Gemma

The Jungle King stamp set is a favourite of mine from the new release. I’ve teamed it with the new Safari Horizontal Scene die. Although this is a slimline die, I’ve used it in a way that works with my love of white space. I began by stamping the images from the Jungle King stamp set, using a brown memento ink, the colouring them with copic markers (colours listed at the end of this post). I then die cut them out with the coordinating dies. I also coloured an additional tree, using the Safari Tree die set. Next, I...

Hip Hip Hooray with Gemma

I love a typographic greetings card. Hello Bluebird have lots of fabulous alpha die sets to choose from when creating your own sentiment.   I selected the Charlie Large Outline Alpha and the Charlie Alpha die sets to create my birthday greeting. These are the same font, just in different sizes and with the addition of an outline on the larger set. I die cut the letters several times from white card stock and adhered them together to get a stacked look. I also die cut the letters from yellow and orange card stock, for pops of colour.  ...
