Hellllllllllo Hello!

Its sunday! and that means its time for another Hungry Heffy Crafts video, and today I am sharing a peekaboo card.

I’m not actually sure if that is a real term, i kinda made it up :-) , but i think it works!

I’ve used some landscape dies to cut a section out of card, which creates a fun wave aperture. I thought it would be funny to create a seaside themed card to coordinate with this wave section on the card, so i pulled out some of my trusty Lawn Fawn stamps.

I have used the Year 6 ‘Shellfish’ stamp set, along with the ‘Mermaid for you’ and ‘critters of the sea’ stamps sets. The stamped images have been coloured using copics and the background made using some distress ink.

To create a focal point for the card, I added a little die cut tag on top, and built an underwater scene featuring the little oyster clam shell image. It sure is a cute one!

I love the stark white against the vibrant colours. It makes my heart sing! fa-la-la-la-la!!

As always, you will find more details in the video tutorial…check it out!

:-)

Have a happy weekend!

HBS – Special Delivery

by Lesley Oman on 4 July, 2016

Hey Everyone! and Happy Independence Day to all my American friends! I hope you have a wonderful celebratory day!

I am over on the Honey Bee Stamps blog today, showcasing how I made this card with the cute postman snail and the handstamped background! I think it kinda looks like pattern paper, but I promise you, it was stamped using mini images from the ‘Special Delivery’ Stamp set.

Head on over to the HBS blog for more info on how i made the card.

Ciao for now!

Happy Birthday, You Party Animal!

by Lesley Oman on 3 July, 2016

Happy Sunday Crafty Friends!

Lawn Fawn critters are my favourite kind of critters! But you probably know that already, because I use them in my cards so much!

I figured that in the alternative universe where Lawn Fawn critters live, they would totally all go to a party together :-)! So I have turned my imagination into a reality in this card!

I mixed a little stamping with watercolouring to get the soft coloured feel for this card. I used dye ink for the ink blending this time (normally I am ALL about the distress inks! )

For the background, I used the Lawn fawn Large stitched rectangle & Simple stitched borders dies, mixed with the mama elephant All Prettied Up die. I added a little colour to the background using some small star stamps. Cute!!

For the greeting, I pulled out the Lawn Fawn Big script greetings stamp set, and mixed this with the Party Animal Stamp set from Avery Elle – they worked perfectly together for this card!

I couldn’t resist adding a little glaze pen to the eyes of the critters, and i also added a few drops with glossy accents.

Please take a look at the video to see the whole process!

Have a wonderful day and be sure to visit me over on the Honey Bee Stamps blog tomorrow if you get a chance!

Ciao!
