Hi – Gift set

Posted by on December 31, 2012 in Copic markers, Flowers, Friendship cards, Gift sets, Hero Arts | 12 comments

Wow…2012 is about to come to an end! Hard to believe really.

Today I am sharing a mini card set that I created for my sister-in-law as a Christmas gift. I love making sets of cards as I think they make the perfect handmade gift. I should have photographed them in pairs to reduce the number of photos, but I didn’t think about that in the rush just before I had to wrap them and send them!

I coloured in the daisy die and also the background pattern with Copic markers.

I love using Hero Arts note cards as the base…I love all of the colours!


Stamps: Hero Arts/Studio Calico Lattice background stamp

Ink: Memento inks – Bahama Blue, Tangelo, Sweet Plum, Lady Bug, Bamboo Leaves, Hero Arts – Soft Pool Shadow Ink

Card: Hero Arts Note cards – Cerulean, Poppy, Pool, Iris, Punch and Grass

Other Supplies: Copic markers, Simon Says Stamp Fresh Daisies die, PTI Block Alphabet die collection, Cuttlebug, WRMK Corner Chomper, Tombow Mono Multi glue

I appreciate you stopping by. I’ll be back soon with another mini set that I made – slightly different to the one above.
