It’s time for a new Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. We’re definitely getting into a Halloween mood with this prompt – monsters! We don’t really celebrate Halloween here, but I still love making creepy-cute cards. Advertisements
Whilst I was eating breakfast this morning I was thinking about what card I would make today. I didn’t have my challenge list in front of me, but came up with this idea based on a few that I remembered, and inspired by a new to me stamp set that was sitting on the table … More Happy Happy Happy Birthday
I decided to pull out Simon Says Stamp’s Hopping Along card kit for today’s card. This was the special limited edition card kit for Easter, and the elements were just perfect for what I wanted to make. Actually this ended up very similar to a card I made previously with this kit.
On Friday I spent some time playing around with the Mod Flower background stamp that came in the Hopping Along card kit from Simon Says Stamp. It’s my first background stamp and I had a few different ideas for it that I wanted to try out.
I had another go at smooshing today, and it was a lot more fun this time as I wasn’t trying to control it at all. I just let it do its thing! I used the resulting paper in two different ways – as a simple as-is panel, and to make some pretty butterflies.
I’m back! I do apologise for going AWOL. I wanted to make cards, but I just haven’t had the energy. I barely had the energy for it today, but did manage in the end. This card actually involves a technique that is new to me – smooshing.
