Super Hero Henry


Hi :)  I have another CC Designs card to share with you today.
This one is using the awesome Roberto's stamp called Super Hero Henry.
It is a bit tricky to make cards for boys and men but this stamp is wonderful and I think this card could be used for a male of any age :)



I wanted to keep it clean and simple but I also added a bit of interest to it by creating the background. I have a tutorial here to show you how I made the rays.  But this time I used different coloured ink :  Daffodil, Starfruit and Cherry Cobbler.

The stars are from the new Superhero Die and I just love this sentiment too!  It could be used as a birthday card or a thank you card.

Ingredients :

Stamps : Super Hero Henry, Super Duper Sentiments
Card : x-press it, crumb cake, black
Ink : memento black, daffodil, starfruit, cherry
Other : Make a card #7 Superhero Die, copics

Copics used :

YG 11, 13, 17
B 0000, 00, 02, 93, 95, 97
E 000, 00, 21, 50, 53, 55
C 1
R 20, 24, 27, 29, 30, 59

Lucy with Teddy


I have a new CC Designs card to share with you today and this one is a real sweetie!  This is
Lucy with Teddy and they're both adorable aren't they ?!




I used the new tag die again too but this time I used the large tag. 
I'm a bit disappointed with how the sentiment looks in the photo.  It's a sentiment from the Pool Party set which I actually silver embossed rather than using black. It really suits the card and looks very pretty, you just can't really tell in the photo unfortunately.

Ingredients :
Stamps : Lucy with Teddy, Pool Party
Card : xpress it, sky, My Girl (MME)
Ink : memento black, versamark
Other ; Make a Tag #6 die, silver ep, copics

Coffee and Friends


Hi :)  It's day two of the new release at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.




This Coffee and Friends set is really great!  And if you love to colour, like me, it's a must have!
It was so much fun to colour these two ladies enjoying a cuppa and a chat :)




I wanted it to really look like a cafe so I made a little awning for the card.  All I did was use a scallop edge die (SU) to cut a piece of card and pattern paper and glued them together.  Then I scored two lines and made a valley fold.  It looks quite effective in real life :)

The Coffee and Friends set comes with some great coffee themed sentiments too.  But I just had to use this one from the new Sweet Summer Sentiments set.  It just seemed to be the perfect fit!  It could be used for many occasions of course, but I had a retirement card in mind :)



Ingredients :

Stamps : Coffee and Friends, Sweet Summer
Card : xpress it, black, grey, slate,
Ink : memento black
Other : scallop edge die (SU), copics

I decided to use this cute Keep Calm stamp from the Sweet Summer set.
I work at a school and I thought it would be a great way to encourage a teacher after a hard week :)
The sentiment was just perfect to use on a Sunburst Card.
I used papers from the Glitz Uncharted Waters pad and decided to add a few pink jewels to the rays too.


I've been working really hard and have got 5 cards to show you over the next 5 days.
So please come back and take a look :)
