Greeting Card Clean and Simple

I often get so carried away with my ideas that I forget about clean and simple cards and how effective they look.

I applied the rules I learnt about colouring fur in the June class by Kit and Clowder to attempt to make the hedgehog look spikey and I think it worked. I got to use my Speckled egg distress ink for the first time too!!
There is a video on my YouTube channel Mrs H's Crafty Corner
Supplies Used Earlie digital stamp  from the fuzzypuff range at Polkadoodles White pre cut scalloped card base Blue polka dot card from hunkydory Distress ink in speckled egg Sentiment from English rose layering stamp- have a wonderful day Just for you sentiment Polkadoodles snow stencil Spectrum Noir alcohol markers Spectrum Noir Midas Ink in Silver

Spring Blossom Embossed Card

This card uses one of my bargain finds from last week. A Daisy Mae Design Stamp in Spring Blossom. I am really pleased with how this coloured up and love the new shade of Tri-blend pen the Postman has just delivered. It is 'Bright Pink Shade' and has produced that amazingly vibrant reddish pink flower.

Embossing and Negative Dies

Having the kids at home and trying to home school, work and have some form of family life is an interesting concept at the moment. I am running out of ideas to keep them entertained while trying to limit to some extent the amount of screen time they have. 


Are you like me? Are the social restrictions begin to grate on you? I understand why we need to do what we are doing but I don't think I have ever gone this long without seeing my best friend. We have been friends since I was 10, so for over 25 years we have stood shoulder to shoulder through the tough times and the great times and I now have not seen her since the beginning of March. Of course we have spoken but not actually seen each other in flesh. She lives over 30 miles away so to drive all that way just to wave through a window was against the rules.

Spring Clean

I love cute animal cards but never thought I would describe a frog as cute!!! However the Daisy Mae Design Spring Clean stamp is an exception to that rule.
This cute little guy looks like he is throughly enjoying his scrub in the bucket and as such it needed a plain and simple card to allow the stamp to do the talking.

Up, Up and Away Easy Fun Twisted Gatefold Card

I have had this gorgeous cloud paper for a little while now and feel this has given it the justice it deserves. It was a free download paper and Mr Printables Mr Printables Website is well worth a look, there are a lot of lovely prints.

A Vibrant Fun Fold Card

I feel like I am getting braver with distress inks and it is starting to show, I love the vibrancy of this card.

It feels really summery to me and reminds me of a red hot sunset and marigolds. Not sure why the marigolds maybe it is the orangey red.
