HOLA PARTY ANIMAL CARD BY SARAH

|

This could work as a general hello notecard or I’m going to give it as a birthday card I think.   Stamp and colour your animals. I used watercolours then added a bit more detail with coloured pencils over the top. Diecut them out, along with the rectangular panel from the Arrow Mat Die. Cover the back of the panel with double-sided tape and position all but one of the animals around, then stick down in the middle of your … Read More

Llama Get Well Card by Sarah

|

Know someone who’s having to take some time out to get well? Guaranteed their recovery will be that bit better if you put an interactive llama card in their hands! Think paper dolls with the little tabs on their clothes so you can mix and match outfits.   Stamp the cactus in a repeat pattern of offset rows on your card blank. Diecut the frame from the Arrow Mat Die and raise up on the card front on foam tape … Read More

Peek A Boo Pets Pull Tab Card by Sarah

|

The cute creatures in this stamp set were just made for popping their heads through windows or over walls. As soon as I saw them, I wanted to use them on a vertical pull tab card and thought it’d be a great opportunity to show that, although there are fancy dies that can make this kind of interactive card easier, you can do it yourself without special equipment and using any stamps you like.   Stamp out the animal of … Read More

Geometric Washi Card by Sarah

|

Got a drawer full of lovely washi tapes hiding in your stash? Here’s an easy way to let some of it out to play! Cut a strip of card into triangles and wrap your choice of washi round each one. I went with 3 designs in coordinating colours. Arrange the triangles as shown, or have a play – any layout goes 🙂 Stamp a couple of textured spots in the background, carrying through the colour scheme from the tape. Stick … Read More

STITCHED BACKGROUND NOTE CARD BY SARAH

|

When is a hill not a hill? When it’s criss-crossed as a sophisticated stitch-effect background.   Cut a panel of white card to fit your card blank. Lay one of the stitched hill dies across the panel diagonally as close to top right corner to bottom left corner as it’s long enough to go, secure with washi or memo tape and run through your diecutter. Move the die an inch or so out towards the bottom right corner. It’ll hang … Read More

Trial and Error Thank You Card by Sarah

|

One of my new year’s resolutions is to give myself more time to play with card designs so I can try out tricky, messy things without feeling pressed for time. Bring on the mixed media! Stamp and heat emboss the largest mandala. There’s something magic about watching embossing powder transform to shiny as it reaches just the right temperature. Make sure to heat from below as well as above to minimise warping. Repeat with the next size down mandala, using … Read More

Congratulations CAS Card by Sarah

|

It’s always nice to help someone mark an achievement they’ve worked hard for. When I came up with the idea for this card I was thinking of prosecco bubbles 🙂 Lay out your stamps with your sentiment at the bottom right of your card blank and a handful of spots bubbling upwards from it, very roughly biggest at the bottom to smallest at the top but mix it up a bit to make it look more natural. Pick up the … Read More

Fairy Lights Christmas Card By Sarah

|

If you’re still undecided about Christmas card designs for this year, here’s one last one from me to help you choose. Cut a panel of black card to the width of your fairy lights stamp, and a height to leave an even border all the way round when you attach it to your card blank later. Stamp your fairy lights in embossing ink – I used a stamping press to keep them all level and evenly spaced. Sprinkle over your … Read More

Change of Address Cards by Sarah May

|

Hi everyone, Sarah’s turn on the blog today – I’m using it to share with you the card design I came up with to let mine and my husband’s extended family know ‘we have moved’. It was good practice at batch-making ahead of Christmas cards!   Usually I buy pre-made card blanks but I wanted these to be dinky and smaller than any blanks I had to hand so I made my own to fit little square brown paper envelopes … Read More

Kaleidoscope Colouring Card by Sarah May

|

Hi all, Sarah here – with a project where colouring is key. Whether you’re a fan of mindful colouring or prefer mindless colouring in front of the TV, if you give it the time it needs then you’ll get beautiful results!   Take a bit of white card suited to what you’re going to be colouring with, ink up your background stamp in black and make your impression. It used to be acrylic blocks all the way for me but I’d … Read More
