Hello everyone! It’s Laura here, from A bit of my crafts 🙂 Today I am really excited to share with you the card I made for my second post as a guest designer here on the Heffy Doodle blog! This time I decided to use the Happy Snappy Crocs stamp set for my main image, and to create a clean and simple card (at least compared to my usual style 🙂 ).
To start off, I stamped one of the images in the set on some Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock and I colored it with my Spectrum Noir markers. I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to do the stamping, as this ink doesn’t smear when used with alcohol markers. I also added a few details to the crocodile with my white gel pen.
I then used a die by My Favorite Things to cut out the hearth shaped balloon from some red cardstock, and the string from some gray cardstock. I coated the balloon with glitter using my Spectrum Noir clear overlay pen and added a highlight with a white gel pen.
I cut my card base from some white cardstock using a die by Studio Katia, that I also used to cut some patterned paper by My Favorite Things. I adhered everything together using white glue.
I stamped the happy birthday sentiment from the Happy Snappy Crocs set with Versafine Onyx Black ink, and, because I felt that there was a bit too much white space (clean and simple, right?! 😉 ), I stamped the cloud image from the Unbearable Without You stamp set using Memento Ink in London Fog.
And that’s it for today’s card! Quite quick to put together, but really fun with the croc carrying the birthday balloon! I really hope you like it too, and I hope I inspired you to create with these fun stamp sets! Thank you all so much for stopping by, and have a great day!
