Clean and simple Birthday card.

Hello friends. I hope you are well. We are in the middle of a heat wave here in the UK and have been blessed with some beautiful sunny days. I hope it lasts into the summer holidays so I can enjoy it when I have the summer off work!

Today I thought I would share this card I made as part of the daily marker 30 day challenge. I chose a few random critter images to create a quick card.

I started by stamping and colouring the doughnuts stack from Mama Elephant with Copics. I then chose some critters from Avery Elle (the duck and bunny) Lawn Fawn (the chick) and My Favorite Things (the shark) and coloured them too.

I found some sprinkle paper in my stash which seemed to fit the doughnuts well so I cut a thick strip and attached this to the card base to run along the bottom of the card.

I lined up the critters and doughnuts and attached them using a tape runner. Using a Copic C0 marker I gave a shadow to each of the images to ground them.

To finish I used the Happy Birthday sentiment from Lawn Fawn and added a pink gem each side to conplete the card.

I hope you like it. Thanks for dropping by.

Teacher cards.

Hello friends. I hope you are well. They weather is finally on the up and we are having some nice warm sunny days now.

Todat I thought I would share two teacher cards I made this week. Only four weeks left at school here before the six week summer break. Being a pre-school teacher myself I am looking forward to the break and lots if crafty time between keeping my own three kids entertained!

This is the first card. I used lots of different brands to create this. I used a free download paper from Downland Crafts. I printed it on to white Bristol cardstock then trimmed to size and attached to a square white card base.

I then coloured images from the Mama Elephant stamp set Page Huggers, using Copic markers. I die cut them with the coordinating dies.

Next I used stamps from Sugar Pea Designs to add the sentiment and the A+. To finish off I attached the images and die cut a heart shape to complete.

This is the second card. I went for a clean and simple design this time.

I stamped and coloured images from the Mama Elephant new release stamp set called Bookworm. All the images are from the set. Next I used the teacher die from Heffy Doodle. I die cut it twice, once in red and once in white and layered them.

To finish I attached all the images to a square card base

I hope you like the cards. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week ahead.
