Summer in the city

You might not have guessed I would go for this set but I have had so much fun playing with all the possibilities. I am sharing this card and my process over on the Foiled Fox blog today so pop on over there to read about how I made it.

The set is called ‘city stacks’ and there is a matching set of dies to cut out the row of houses, the hill of trees, the collection of skyscrapers and the bank of clouds. This card is definitely a stack of layers, five to be exact including the card base, but I have made a some one and two layer cards with this set also.


When I saw all the fun that could be had with this set I decided to design a class around it so you can check that out on my upcoming classes page. To see what Laurel Beard dreamed up with this set check out her card on the Foiled Fox blog last week. Now tell me, even if this isn’t your style, can you see why I love this set so much?

    This is a really fun card Heather and very well put together. I haven’t the patience to colour in images to this degree but I so admire the ability in others. Great work.

    Love how you built that scene, and the colors are perfect for summer.

    This style of drawing for these stamps is very simplistic and folksy, and I love what you have done with them to build a scene Heather, and the colours are so pretty. A really fun card! x

    As I return home today, this is a card which speaks to me of the wonderful time I have had with my Ottawa family these past eight weeks. Thank you.
