Mountains and Sea Scene

hello. I have a card to share which is completely different to what I usually create. I recently attended – virtually – the Concord & 9th Summer Camp, and part of the brilliant kit was a set of dies which I used to create a scene. here is my card:

Apparently, this is called a pop-up card – for obvious reasons. The stamps and dies as part of the Summer Camp kit are exclusive to the attendees, and having some spare time today I had a little play, combining the pop-up card dies with some stamps from Heffy Doodle.

I first die cut the base card out of a light blue card stock, then used a stencil for some clouds – little did I know that the base card would be almost completely covered as I added so many layers!

I used different shades of Concord & 9th blue card stock to represent the sea. The other layers were added as bases for the lighthouse, and the beach hut.

The other items were stamped and coloured with Copics and placed where I thought they would fit.

Once I had got the hang of the layers and how to stick them down – double-sided tape being better than wet glue – I managed to create something I like the look of. It’s fun and quirky – maybe a little out of dimension with each other – but there we go…….

HLS January CAS Challenge

Hello everyone. I am very pleased to let you all know I am now on the Design Team for the Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge! Who would have thought I would be on a CAS DT, never mind for Happy Little Stampers – I am more than stoked…….

My first CAS Challenge as part of the Design Team has the theme of ‘Short and/or Tall’

……….here is my card:

I used the Heffy Doodle ‘Lil Lighthouse‘ stamp and matching die set, also stamping a few of the little rocks from Lawn Fawn ‘Christmas Fishes‘ so it looks like the lighthouse is on an island in the middle of nowhere.

All images coloured with Copics, and using the sentiment from the same lighthouse stamp set, outlining the sentiment strip with one of the colours of yellow I used on the door of the lighthouse – just so it stands out a little more.

The ‘rays’ of the lighthouse is from the matching die set, and I just coloured a piece of card and stuck it beneath the holes.

I hope you can come and join us – there is a lot of varied inspiration from the DT – be sure to keep your projects CAS using the challenge theme. I hope to see you there. xx

‘H’ for Hungry

Hi there. A new challenge is beginning at The Alphabet Challenge. We have reached the letter ‘H‘ – and we want to see Hungry – feature your favourite food. It doesn’t have to be the healthy option either – a good thing as my card features anything but healthy food:

This is a Clearly Besotted I ‘found’ again when adding stash to the Color My Life app. I am more of a savoury than a sweet kinda gal, and I couldn’t decide which is my favourite – so I used them all – virtually!

I used some Kraft card-stock, and just stamped away to create my own background of savoury deliciousness……there are burgers, fries – chips to the UK people – chicken, pizza – all sorts of goodies here in this Clearly Besotted stamp set.

For the gaps I used a combination of stamps from several stamp sets – the hearts, the ‘XO’ – trying to be careful not to stamp ‘OX’ very often! 🙂

There are three little lines which are actually the radiating lines from a lighthouse stamp set – just to cover the gaps.

I did toy with the idea of colouring the images – but as you can see I left them as they are – and I think more effective because of that.

The sentiment is from the same Clearly Besotted stamp set.

I hope you can come and join us – I’d love to see what you are ‘Hungry’ for and what your favourite food is – or a collection of your favourite foods. xx
