Kids Xmas cards with non-holiday stamps!

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. I don't usually make kids Xmas Cards, as I'm never sure what to create. However, this year I want to try and make some Xmas cards for my niece and nephew, so I started to brainstorm what I could make. I decided the easiest way to make a card, was to make them in a theme they would like. My Niece loves unicorn and my nephew has started getting into baking, so I search the Bumbleberrys website on both themes and wham, these cards happen! So I'm sharing...

Masked ink blended whimsy scene - Hero Arts: Need A Hand

Hello there, it is Verity here from Pretty Little Button for the Bumbleberry Design team. Scene building is such a great way to build a card, but the scene doesn't always have to take over the whole of the card. Masked ink blended whimsy scenes are great for creating a small scene that jumps off the card as though you've caught a moment in time.  I used the fun Need A Hand stamp set from Hero Arts and it comes with some beautiful whimsy underwater stamps. Paired with ink blending and white space you have two modern whimsy cards!  Written and photos...
