I made this card a little while ago for our work colleague, John, who took the brave step of packing his bags and moving to Spain. It all happened so fast, but i know he will do GREAT over there!
Of course, i had to send him off in style with his own bespoke HHC card! I used this super cute fox /wolf critter from the mama elephant up and away stamp set, coloured with some spectrum noir pencils. I also used the paper airplane image from lawn fawn- isn’t it cute how it looks like he is throwing it!!
For the background i wanted to invoke the idyllic hues of a spanish pool, so created a watercolour effect using distress inks.
How are ya? The sun is shining here in Sunny Surrey, England, and I have just had a productive session in the craft room! Yeay! I have quite a few birthdays coming up so i made a list of cards to make and as there are about 10 needed in the next few weeks, i got cracking! I managed to get two done- both playing with distress inks as a water colouring medium. Videos to follow soon, i promise!
I have a video for today. OK. So, I’m not sure if it is supposed to be a Christmas card (?) or a valentines card, or a anniversary card, or simply a generic ‘hey there, i love you’ kinda card. Lets just say it could be used for all or any of the above.
I few awesome products to mention – the lawn fawn stitched rectangle dies of course. LOVE THESE! You know that anyway because they are practically in EVERY video you see! heehee! Also, the cottage cutz deer die. Its an oldie, but a cutie! Another favourite is the sakura glaze pen. I have it in white and black – perfect for eyes and noses of critters (as in this video) but i also used it in a cool way to create another awesome look! Check it out!
Another video to share today – and another play round with using stamps to create backgrounds for cards. For this card I was experimenting using the envelope stamps from the SimonSaysStamp Happy Mail stamp set. I think this stamp set is so versatile!
I am really loving the text as well as the other images! Here’s a video walkthrough of how i made the card. Enjoy!
