Inspired by Pinterest #6

I saw the most stunning card by the wonderful May Sukyong Park, and I just had to have a go at recreating it. I encourage you to take a look at May’s blog as she is incredibly talented.  I started by prepping a piece of white cardstock with an anti-static powder tool. I stamped some…

WPlus9 Summer Blooms

You can never have enough floral stamp sets, right? That’s what I tell myself and there are just so many fabulous sets to choose from too. WPlus9 released a fun floral set recently. It’s called Summer Blooms and has flowers that can be stamped together or individually, so it makes it a very versatile set….

Mama Elephant Trifecta

I love all the geometric designs I’ve been seeing on cards recently. I think they work for lots of occasions, and are great on masculine cards. Having said that, they also work well for feminine cards, like this one which I created using the Mama Elephant Trifecta stamp set. I started by white heat embossing the…

Stunning Shadow Stamping

The final challenge at MFT Camp Create is ‘Stunning Shadow Stamping’. This is one of my favourite card techniques at the moment, especially with Kraft card. I decided today to try a different colour card base instead. I was inspired by a monochromatic card shared on the MFT blog, made by Stephanie Klauk. I thought…

Single Layer Savvy

Today I’m sharing a card I made for the ‘Single Layer Savvy’ challenge at MFT Camp Create. I stamped a bear and sentiment from the MFT Beary Special Birthday stamp set onto white card.  I coloured the image with Copics and promarkers, adding glitter to the cake. I trimmed down the panel to fit within an…

Divine Dry Embossing

I’m playing along with MFT Camp Create today, with a card for the ‘Divine Dry Embossing’ challenge. This isn’t a technique I’ve really explored before so was fun to try something new. I used a tan embossing mat with my Cuttlebug machine, to dry emboss on white card the ‘happy birthday’ words from the MFT…

Monochromatic Magic

I’m joining in with the MFT Camp Create today, with a card for the ‘Monochromatic Magic’ challenge. I started by looking at papers and inks that I own, to try and find a good colour match. I settled on a teal colour scheme, using Memendo Teal Zeal dye ink, a lovely teal chevron paper from…

Geometric cards with Mama Elephant Trifecta

I’ve been enjoying making cards with geometric patterns recently. I thought I’d share two very different cards I’ve made with the Mama Elephant Trifecta stamp set. This set features triangles and arrows to make your own patterns with and is very versatile. I started by heat embossing in white the triangle outlines from the set….

Thank you with WPlus9 Summer Blooms

I have a thank you card to share today, using this week’s sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch. To get good stamped impressions, I decided to use the mini Misti for this card. I’m using the fabulous Wplus9 Summer Blooms stamp set. I started by stamping the sentiment in memento tuxedo black dye ink. I added a…

Musical Geometric Card

Today I’m sharing a musical geometric patterned card I made for my brother. I ran some dark grey card through my die cut machine with the Lil’Inker Designs Woodgrain cover die. I blended distress ink in green and yellow onto white card, then used the Lil’Inker Designs Quilted Stitch cover die to add detail. I…

Hawaiian Florals

I’m playing along with this week’s MFT sketch challenge today. I used the MFT Fall Florals stamps and dies which, combined with the coral background, gave the card a very Hawaiian feel. On watercolour card, I blended abandoned coral distress ink, flicking with water and pink perfect pearls before drying with a heat tool. I…

Balloons on Kraft

I’ve been wanting to work with Kraft cardstock for a while, and finally got some A6 Kraft cards and white pigment ink. I decided to try the MFT Big Balloons stencil to do some shadow stamping. I started by using white pigment ink to stencil four balloons across the card front. Layering colour over white…
