Creating a Rainbow Check Background with Leanne

Hello everyone! I’m back with more rainbow inspiration except this time it’s in the form of a very fun buffalo plaid background. So get out your ink cubes and any plaid background stamp and join me! To create my “rainbowed” plaid background, I’ve used the Buffalo Check Background stamp and some Altenew ink cubes (see photo below for specific colors). The cubes are small enough to ink horizontal sections of the background stamp until filled with all the colors. Overlaping the colors slightly will result in a seamless transition. I did a better job of that towards the top...

Valentine’s Snowman Card with Leanne

Hello everyone and happy 2023! I have begun making my Valentine’s Day cards but I wasn’t ready to put away the snowmen stamps quite yet. So for today’s card I’ve incorporated a snowman image from the Snowman Hugs stamp set. I think adding snowmen to Valentine cards is a great way to stretch those images beyond Christmas and besides, a lovable cute snowman is a perfect fit for a Valentine theme. For this mini slimline card, I kept the scene fairly simple. I wanted the focus to be on the bold greeting and hedgehog hugging the snowman. Below is...
