Card Making

 

IT’S HERE! Autumn is my MOST FAVOURITE time of the year! I love the colours, I love the smell, I love the clothes, I love everything! It is definitely one of my most favourite things.

So of course it was only fitting to share a autumn card with you guys today, and to use some My Favorite Things stamps on there… and I have mixed in some of my other faves too – Lawn Fawn and Mama Elephant stamp sets too!

For the scene I have used the lawn fawn stitched rectangle dies, stitched border dies and simple stitched hillside border dies, and used distress inks to add some rich autumnal colours!


This card had lots of cute stamps from the Forest Friends set from MFT stamps, and Jump for joy stamp set from lawn fawn, coloured with copic markers. For the greeting, I used a sentiment from the Jump for joy set, and created the word YIPPEE with the Cali Letters set from Mama Elephant! I used the misti to help me get it in just the right position.  This alpha is so very pretty!

 

Here’s the video tutorial for you to enjoy… as for me, I’m off to wrap up warm and take a walk through the woods! Happy Crafting! :-)

Oh, and before I go, I will be over on the Honey Bee Stamps blog tomorrow, so i hope to see you guys there! Cheerio!

Krafty Teal Teddy Bear – ft. Honey Bee Stamps

by Lesley Oman on 12 September, 2016

Hey guys and gals!

I hope you are all having a wonderful day! I am over on the Honey Bee Stamps Blog today with this cute bear card featuring the bear from Flakey Friends, the Country Wreath set and Special Delivery.

This card focuses on two main techniques – firstly, embossing <3, and secondly, a little creative thinking when it comes to stretching your stamps – here’s a clue -the ribbon image behind the bear is actually a flag stamp from the  Honey Bee Stamps Special Delivery set. There are loads more details, as well as more photos, over on the  Honey Bee Stamps blog. Why not come and take a look!

 

Thanks for stopping by, have a crafty day!

Oh, and I should also tell you that the GIVEAWAY is still open. See the post below for more details!

Sweet, Fab Friend – & A Celebratory GIVEAWAY!! {video}

by Lesley Oman on 11 September, 2016

 

THE GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED- THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED!

Oh crafty, crafty friends! My sweet and fabulous crafty friends! Not only do I have a video for you guys today, but I also have a GIVEAWAY!! YAYYYY!!

A celebratory giveaway, in honour of reaching 5000 subscribers over on the HungryHeffycrafts You Tube Channel! YIPPPEEEEE!!

I want to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who views my crafty work and for the awesome ‘likes’, thumbs ups and comments! You guys are all awesome and you really make my day! So I want to celebrate you guys with a giveaway!

There are three ways to enter the giveaway – see the details at the bottom of this post. 

But first, here is todays project!

I am in LOVE with the adorable Page Huggers stamps from Mama Elephant – I love the cute critters and they way you can tuck the stamped images beneath their paws! I am dropping hints to hubby that I simply NEED the coordinating dies!

I have matched these stamps with some grass and cloud dies, as well as the madison avenue dies to create a frame. For the greeting I have used the ‘wonderful‘ and ‘fabulous‘ dies and the Sentiment Builder stamp set from Honey Bee Stamps. I love that the Sentiment Builder set gives such great versatility, and I think they worked really well with the design of the card!

I stamped the bunny and mouse image, along with some of the coordinating images from the same Page Huggers set,  onto neenah cardstock and used copic markers to colour them in. I actually wanted the mouse to be a rat, so I tried to colour him a bit like a hooded rat, which is why his head is darker from the rest of his body. I used a little twine for his tail…… Oh man, I wish I was allowed to have pet rats!

Here’s the video, where you can see the whole process of how I made the rat version of this card, but I loved the result so much I made two cards with the same template but mixed it up with colours, critters and sentiments!
