Thanks so much (Happy Day/Waffle Flower)

Hi Everyone, I was lucky enough to be given the Happy Day stamp set by Waffle Flower and coordinating die for my birthday this year. I’ve sketched out about six different designs to create using this stamp set and I know this is just the tip of the iceberg as far as possible designs.

As is often the case with me these days, I am sharing two “similar but different cards”. They are not quite the designs I had in my head and this happened because I had freshly inked my distress ink pad. When I tapped the blending tool onto the inkpad, it picked up more ink than I had realised. Despite tapping the tool on some scrap paper before I started I ended up with a lot more ink on my paper than I had intended. I went with the flow and made the setting a lot bolder and coloured the whole panel. I can always save my original idea for another day! I’m also out of practice with colouring so I stamped the image twice and decided to colour one using Copic Markers and paint the other with Distress Markers. I figured this way I would end up with at least one card. In the end, I decided to make both images into cards.

Here’s the first card…

Happy Purrthday! Wishing You A Pawsome Day (Lawn Fawn)

Hi Everyone, as a massive fan of Lawn Fawn, I love it when they issue their new releases. Well, artistically, I love it but the wallet doesn’t love it quite as much. Haha! I’m sure many of you can relate! The latest release had so many wonderful things but sadly, I just couldn’t get them all. One item which nearly didn’t make the cut was the Meow You Doin’? set. I’m a dog person so tend to favour the dog images but there was something about this set I couldn’t resist. I’m so glad I got it as it is such a fun set to use. I have only just started to explore this set. Initially, I started to create with this set as part of my quest to design an 18th Birthday card (see this post) but I decided to go in a different direction for that project. Nevertheless, since the stamp set was out, I just had to create with it! The one thing I *wish* I had done differently? Purchased the coordinating die set! This is now on the Wish List! It would have made the putting together of some of these cards even simpler! The following set of four shows variations of the same theme but I hope you will see something in one of the designs which will inspire you.

Here’s the first card…
