Happily Ever After

Hi Friends

Finally Saturday here again and after a busy weekend last week, ours is going to be a nice and quiet one this week.

Last night I managed to sneak in some time in the craft room and create a card for Kaisercraft’s Saturday Challenge. It’s the first time I’m playing along in one of these challenges and I have to say they are soo much fun! It’s also great because I have soo much Kaisercraft products in my stash, it gives me a chance to put them to some good use!

The challenge asked for cards to be made using three elements, something Sparkly, an element that is Multi-dimensional and something Floral. I chose to create my card using the new Something Blue paper pad and texture stamp.

Happily Ever After Card

I love the colours and textures in this new paper collection.

To create the card I cut some strips of patterned paper and glued them to one side of my card so that they were overlapping. I left the overlapping sides of them glue free so that they would fan out from the edge of the card giving it some dimension. I then stamped my sentiment onto some white cardstock and glued it down to the top of my card.

Lastly, to embellish the card, I added a strip of silver rhinestones, some paper blooms and sparklet hearts. I also created another card using the three challenge elements, so I’ll share that with you all shortly.

Thanks for stopping by today and enjoy your weekend.

Purrfect!

Hi Everyone

Are you all enjoying the week so far? Mine hasn’t been such a good one, the girls and I are all battling with the flu! It seems to be going around at the moment and the girls are starting to feel a little better but I think I’m still at the height of it :( Hopefully in a few more days it will be gone. Fingers crossed.

A new trend I have noticed popping up more and more in paper crafting lately is all things cats. Cute cats, funky cats, spooky cats and the list goes on. I have a kitty myself so I absolutely love cats and thought I would make a few cards featuring these cute little pets.

I don’t have any cat stamps in my stash at the moment (I have ordered some though, but they haven’t arrived yet), so I made a cute little cat card using my Silhouette Cameo machine and a sentiment I typed up in Microsoft Word.

Purrfect Card

I downloaded this funky cat image from the Silhouette online store and cut it from some American Crafts textured cardstock. I typed my sentiment into a Word document and changed the colour of the font to match the main colour of the cat, before cutting the sentiment panel down to a smaller size and adhering it to my card base. Finally, I pieced the kitty together and glued it to my card.

I really love this cute kitty image. I have a couple more cat cards I’ve created, so be sure to look out for them over the next few days as I share them.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Candy Heart Wreath

Hello

Another weekend has come to an end, but I’ve had a really great one this week. The wedding we went to on Saturday night was absolutely beautiful. The bride was stunning and the overall event was so much fun. It was also nice to have a night out without the kiddos!

Speaking of weddings, I thought it would be fitting to share another love themed card with you all today. Except this one is a general love card rather than a wedding themed one.

Candy Heart Wreath Card

I created another wreath card, this time using the cute Sweet Hearts clear stamp set by Hero Arts, three different shades of pink coloured ink and a heart shaped die.

After stamping the hearts in various shades of pink, I then die cut them out before gluing them down to my card base in a circle. I then adhered the “I Love U” heart to the card using adhesive foam to give it height and to highlight the sentiment.  It was a really easy and quick card to put together.

See you all soon with another card share.

Hugs

Wild Heart

Hello There

Happy Friday! It’s going to be a busy weekend coming up for us, as tomorrow we have a wedding to go to that my hubby is best man in. I probably won’t see he most of the day and night but at least I will be sitting with all our friends and having a much needed night out.

The card I have to share with you today is a completely digital one I created for a publication call featuring animal prints, but unfortunately it wasn’t picked up. I don’t usually create digital cards, but when I don’t have something in my stash for a particular theme, I’ll usually try and create something using digital elements.

Wild Jigsaw Heart Card

I’ve had the Wild Thing digital papers by Jazzy Patterns on my computer for a couple of years now but have never actually gotten around to using it, so when the publication call asked for cards featuring animal print it reminded me I had some digital animal print paper, so I finally put it to good use.

Using Adobe Photoshop, I created a sheet of animal print paper using all of the different patterns that come in the digital paper kit. To do this I layered each design of animal print onto a blank document, leaving about 2 centimetres of each design showing, so that it created a large striped sheet of patterned paper using each of the animal prints. I then printed the sheet out, and using my Silhouette Cameo machine, electronically cut the Heart Puzzle shape from the animal print paper. Here is a close up of the puzzle heart.

I then put the heart puzzle together on my card base, gluing down each piece and leaving a gap between them to highlight the puzzle shapes.

My sentiment is also digital but I created it in Microsoft Word using two different fonts. The colour of the word “wild” was actually a shade of pink to match that in the animal print, but my printer was having an off day and not printing cleanly so the end result ended up being a mixed stripe colour, which I actually thought looked really cool!  Who knew a dodgy print could turn out perfect for a particular project!  I then cut the sentiment out and added it to my card using adhesive foam.

I had lots of fun creating this card but I do have to say that stamping is still my preferred method of card making!

Have a fun and happy weekend friends.

Halloween Wreath Card

Hi Everyone

Happy hump day. It’s already the middle of the week and it’s been a super busy one here. Lots of creating and trying to keep up with my girls makes it feel like there is not enough time in the day!  More so because last night was a very sleepless one as they are finally getting their very last teeth!

Anyway I’m sharing another Halloween card today and this one features a wreath I created using stamps which I stamped around a circle line, I lightly drew onto my card.

Halloween Wreath Card

I used lots of Hero Arts products on this card and stamped different little spooky images using bright neon ink in Halloween colours. Once I stamped all the images, I carefully erased the circle line and embellished the wreath with matching gemstones and a doubled up twine bow. Lastly I then stamped my sentiment below the wreath.

I’ve been creating a few wreath cards lately and this technique is a really simple one if you don’t have any specific wreath stamps in your stash. I’ll share a few more with you all soon.

That’s all from me for today, but thank you for always stopping by.

Have a wonderful day.
