Snow Globe - Cute Christmas Deer card

Hey Crafty Friends, Today I'm sharing a card I made adapting a hot air balloon die into a snow globe. Don't you just love it when a die in your stash can work in more than one way! This is exactly what the Heffy Doodle hot air balloon die can do for you!  To start I took the main hot air balloon piece and ink blended down a sky look with Blueprint Sketch, Mermaid Lagoon and Tumbled glass. Use a little water to splat on top of the ink to create a snowy look, I also added some Copic Opaque White ink to splatter on too. I then took the little town border dies by Heffy Doodle and cut this from a white piece of card stock to add into the globe section. Ink the bottom up with a little Tumbled Glass to help it blend in with the rest of the globe. For my images I am using the Deer to Me stamp set by Heffy Doodle. I have coloured them using Copics and add some dotting over the images using the Pear Blossom Press White Gel Pen so it gives the feel they really are in the snow! Now to make

Hey Crafty Friends, Today I'm sharing a birthday card I made for a work colleague. Cat cards are not something I reach to make very often unless I have too and I don't own too many either, there are a few work colleagues who love their cats and I feel I have totally exhausted the stamps I do own this year until I found this Lawn Fawn Fortune Teller Tabby at the back of my stash!  I decided to go with a galaxy theme to stage my image. I've use a coordinating die from the Time for Tea  Spooktacular stamp set. Starting with the circle piece I ink blended a galaxy sky using Wilted Violet , Blueprint Sketch ,  Cracked Pistachio and  Black Soot Distress Inks. I die cut the same piece again from  huckleberry card stock and used just the scalloped edge to frame my galaxy section. For added t

Our Friendship is Golden - Halo Lights!

Hey Crafty Friends it's Jasmin here from  @jasmincraftymakes   I'm excited to be back to share my 2nd post as Guest Designer for Pear Blossom Press, today's card feature's the  Halo Lights . These are super easy to use and give that something extra to your projects! For this card I wanted to use a stamp set and sentiment that would relate to us all. I think all friendships in the craft world are golden! This stamp set is from Sweet November Stamps called  Goldie , So let's get started! (Light up photo at the end of my post  🙂 ) For my background I have used the  Stitched bubble background die  by Heffy Doodle, I started by inking up some coloured card stock. Using coloured card stock gives you a primed base for inking, for additional texture I flicked water to react the inks to give a splatter affect. Once I have cut the panel from the die I took a  stitched circle die  that was the same size or near as to the  Halo Lights  and cut this centrally from my panel. Bef

Victorian Christmas

Hey Crafty Friends, Welcome back! I'm super excited about today's project, have you seen the amazing stamps from  Scrappy Boy Stamps ? If you haven't yet stumbled across this amazing company please do go check them out!  When Sean asked if I would like to Guest Design obviously I couldn't say no! This Victorian Christmas stamp set is just perfect for those festive cards. It's filled with lots of decorative elements, lovely sentiments and 4 people images, you could use this set over and over again in different ways it's very versatile. I went with a rather large card for my first project! This is an 8.5x11 piece of  card stock that I scored in half to create my base. I cut a front panel to the same size and used a  stitched square die  to form 2 windows each side. With the cut outs from the windows I inked this with  Victorian Velvet  distress ink and Catherine Pooler  Royal Treatment  ink to stamp a small bauble element in a wallpaper affect. To complete my sce
