Meet the Artist – Heather & Len

Meet the Artist – Heather & Len

Hello everyone.
Well it is another scorcher of a day down here
 in Kent and despite the weather, 
you all seem to be taking advantage
 of my naughtiness in the 30/30 Sunshine Sale!
You really do like to shop!
I had to go into hiding at the office!!!!
So, time to go back to Meet the Artist
and today’s Birthday card is from
Heather & Len.
Heather & Len or Leather & Hen as they are often called, 
help out at most of the retail shows we attend. 
So, let me see if I can work out what Heather has done…..

Take a piece of 7″x7″ Stencil card attach the
 Abstract Squares 2 stencil to your card using low tack tape.
Choose a selection of Artistry Ink Pads and then slowly brush in the colours,
one at a time using the Stencil Brushes.
Build the colour up softly and slowly.
(Once you add it, you can’t take it away!!)
remembering that you are going to stamp into the squares 
and then colour in.
With the stencil still in place,take a black micron pen 
and slowly trace around the inside of each of the boxes.
Take some stamps from the Kitchen Unmounted stamp set 
and stamp into place.
Colour with Perga Liners or Perga Colours Exclusive 
or any pencil/pen of your choice.

Stamp out the boxes from the Letterbox Unmounted Stamp Set

and then add the letters.
Use the same colour Artistry Ink Pads to apply colour
to the boxes and then cut them out and position in place.

Mat and layer on to complimentary backing papers 
and attach to a larger card blank.

Take the stencil and then slowly work around the outside
 to create an additional border using the 
same method when creating the main piece.

  1. Oh what a lovely card from Heather and Len! Very clever.
    Oh Paul you are being naughty! I bet you're loving it! Have a great evening in the sunshine.
    Love and hugs! Xxx

  2. What a beautiful card that Heather has created. It is always good to see Heather (and Len)at the shows. My daughter is also called Heather, it is such a lovely name.
    I love the cake stamps and recently used them on a journal page when I was thinking about my favourite cakes. The stamps were so effective and finished off the page nicely.

  3. I love this card! As a “non stamper” I just really appreciate the talent of those who are and this is so vibrant and cheerful. Beautiful work, Heather and Len – I envy your talent. Have a good weekend everyone. Annette X

  5. Hi Paul
    What a great card from Len and Heather, I hadn't realised there was a set of kitchen stamps, I might have to have a peep at them. You are being naughty Paul, no wonder you had to hide from everyone today. I hope you manage to enjoy some of this lovely sunshine this weekend.
    Love Diane xxx

  6. Another beautiful card from Heather and Len and the stencil together with the little stamps is a match made in heaven. Fabulous work and a great description Paul. x

  7. Hello Paul, what a lovely card from Heather and Len. I am enjoying your analysis of how each was made and what was used, as it gives us a chance to give a go at the designs. Now with regards to your naughtiness, I am not surprised you had to hide, but thanks, great offers. Take care all. Bx
