Farm-tastic Birthday with Leanne

Hi there! Leanne here and I have a fun birthday card to share. It’s no secret that I love nothing more than building scenes with cute critters. I also love adding big bold greetings and can’t resist a good pun. So today’s card checks off all the creative boxes for me. This card is A7 size (5″x7″). I started by stenciling a light and airy cloud background. I added a grassy hill to the bottom of the card front that’s been stamped with some of the grass images from Party on the Farm. I created the bold greeting next....

Mix & Match Besties Card with Leanne

Hello everyone! Leanne here to share a card I created with lots of left overs that were sitting on my desk. After creating all the card samples for previews with the new release, I had some things that didn’t get used. When I gathered them up, I knew I could create one more card.

I used the left over inked background and...

Hello Friend Card with Leanne

Hi there! Leanne here today. I’m sharing a friendship card I’ve created with some of my all time favorite Hello Bluebird stamps. McGregor’s Garden and the Country Gingham background are right up there as my most used HB stamps. They pair together perfectly to create a cheerful card design. This card is A2 size and I started by making the gingham panel. I used Catherine Pooler Be Mine ink to stamp the gingham and then die cut with a scalloped frame die from my stash. I used a stitched circle die to make the base for the little bunny...

Warm Wishes Slimline Card with Leanne

Hello everyone! I have a holiday slimline card to share today featuring one of my favorite things from the last release… the Warm Wishes Word die. I have always loved adding a bold greeting to my cards. I’ve put the Warm Wishes die cut front and center on this slimline design and then added a few cute critters and snowflakes. I started with my slimline card base that measures 3.5″ tall by 8.5″ wide. I die cut a large heart from pink card stock. To darken the edges of the heart, I sponged on some Candied Apple Distress Ink....
