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

Instructions

The hedgehog was printed and coloured using the alcohol markers


This was trimmed to 4 1/2 inch by 4 1/2 and the blue polka dot card was trimmed to 4 3/4 by 4 3/4 Inch. 

The sentiment was stamped using speckled egg distress ink then heat embossed in snowflake tinsel


Over the top right corner I used the snow stencil and the distress ink.


The blue card was glued behind the image and this was glued to the scalloped card base

A piece of pink paper was glued inside which measured 4 1/4 by 4 1/4 Inch and the sentiment was stamped in Silver


I have entered this into CAS challenge

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. 

Friendship

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

This is a super easy card to make. I used the Daisy Mae Design Hot Air Ballon Stamp. This was one of my bargains from last week


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.

Fun Fold Card


A super cute and easy fun fold card, This has a teachers theme but can be adapted to whatever you wish


Full video tutorial available here Mrs H's Crafty Corner You Tube Channel

You Will Need
1 piece of card stock 11 3/4 Inch x 5 1/2 Inch
2 panels of patterned paper 1 1/2 inch x 5 Inch
1 piece of plain paper 5 Inch x 3.5 Inch
1 piece of patterned paper 5 Inch x 3.5 Inch
Scoring tool
Glue/ double sided tape
Paper trimmer
Ruler

Embellishments of your choice

I Used

Torn Edge Nesting Dies 
Big Shot
A class Act Stamp and Die set by Clearly Besotted 
Hunkydory Score Board 
Spectrum Noir Tri-blend Markers
Papermania Embossing powder (In Superfine Silver) 


Instructions 

Begin by cutting your card stock to 11 3/4 Inch by 5 1/2 Inch
Score at 2, 4, 8, and 10 Inch along the length 
Place a tiny mark at 6 Inch on both edges and using your ruler score from the middle point of the middle column to the corner of the first score mark (see picture below)
 
Trim 1/4 off the 1st panel

Fold the original 4 score lines, the vertical ones as valley folds

The diagonal score lines then want to be folded as mountain folds.
Cut 2 panels 1.5 Inch by 5 Inch and stick these to the outer columns with the glue of your choice

In order to cut the 8 triangles, first cut a piece of plain paper stock to 5 Inch by 3 1/2 Inch. Mark this at 1 3/4 Inch on the short side and 2.5 Inch on the long side. Draw a diamond 

Cut the diamond out and keep the 4 triangles from the edges. Next cut the diamond into quarters.

Stick these to the triangle panels on the card 

Cut another piece of patterned paper 5 Inch by 3 1/2 inch and mark in the same way as you did with the plain paper. Cut down the diamond and apply to the front panel

Then embellish however you wish. I used the big shot to die cut 2 different sized torn edge rectangles.
I stuck one vertically
I stamped, coloured and die cu an unbranded teachers set I had and used these on the front panel. I then heat embossed the 2nd torn edge rectangle horizontally with the sentiment 'teacher you are a class act.
 This card can be adapted to what ever you have in your stash and is super quick to make but a real eye catcher. Hope you have as much fun making it as I did creating it
