Whimsy Autumn Swing

There is a new digital release at Whimsy Stamps again and this time I’ve used Autumn Swing. I coloured up a little scene for her rather quickly, but it gave the effect I wanted. Proper autumn colours were needed for this card and what is better than a big tree to swing from?

Polkadoodles witch

It’s time for another Polkadoodles card! I used Winnie Wednesday Witch and decided to make a birthday card from it. We don’t tend to make a big deal of Halloween here, even if it’s a little bigger every year, so Halloween cards is something I don’t make many of. To have a fitting sentiment for this card, I decided to just write one up and print it. I really wanted a wicked one!

What I do enjoy though, however, is to carve pumpkins and due to various restrictions and unfortunate circumstances due to the current pandemic I ended up carving three of them this year. You can see the photos of them on my Instagram account!

Crafty Meraki Christmas miracle

Today I have two cards to show you using the same stamp set from the latest Crafty Meraki release.

First I made a panel and stamped up the holly stamp repeatedly. Then I cut it diagonally and used one part on card one and the other part on card two. I then coloured up some stripes to match the colours of the coloured holly. For the slimline card I used the Frame-Worthy die set from Crafty Meraki to make the border around the card as well as the stripes.

And for the normal A2 sized card I used the bit that was cut out in the middle of the smallest frame to create a strip of colour on the side.

Crafty Meraki + Colorado Craft Company

Today Crafty Meraki is having a special mini release. It’s a collaboration with Colorado Craft Company! It is a part of CCC’s big and bold line and it’s a gorgeous orchid.

I have opted for a no-line version in a bit of an unusual colour, at least for an orchid. Then again, orchids can be in pretty much any colour you want, right? Once I had almost all of it coloured up, I simply had to give the centre a lime green colour. I don’t know why, but that’s what felt right at the time and I really quite like it, actually.

Crafty Meraki Little things

Through the whole month Crafty Meraki has been launching their very first release. It contains both clear stamps and slimline dies. One of the products I’ve gotten to play with is this pretty floral stamp called Little Things. I’ve used it twice at different angles and used autumn colours for a change.

I opted for a red card base and used a die from Altenew for the text combined with an embossed text stamp from MFT Stamps.
