So sorry it has been a while since my last post. November and December are busy months for us in the lead up to Christmas, with getting everything organised for school next year for my girls, planning their birthday and getting ready for Christmas!
But I did manage to sneak in some time today to create a card for the current MFT Stamps sketch challenge. Here is a look at this week’s sketch:
Keeping pretty much true to the sketch (I just substituted the square for a circle), I created a whimsical card using the Knight in Shining Armor stamp set.
I first started by die cutting my circular frame using the Wonky Stitched Circle Stax dies and then using the negative to create a frame for me to ink blend a circle directly onto my card base before gluing the frame down onto my card base.
I then stamped, coloured and die cut my images for the card, along with die cutting some Stitched Clouds from glitter cardstock. I then arranged all the elements where I wanted them before sticking them down with glue and adhesive foam. I then stamped my sentiment onto a strip of cardstock and also stuck that to my card base using adhesive foam. Finally I embellished the card with some blue enamel dots.
How cute is this stamp set?! I love how you can create some really fun and cute cards for boys, which is definitely out of my comfort zone as I tend to create more girly things, but it’s good have some on hand.
Anyway I better get some things organised for tomorrow but thank you for stopping by tonight!
How are you all today? It’s a super hot day here today, so I’m trying to stay cool in the craft room, as well as dreading the fact summer will soon be here! This year has just flown by super fast!
Today I have a card I created using the current Stamp & Colour – Penguin Pals card kit by Uniquely Creative. For my card I used the Woodland Creatures add-on stamp set to create this sweet CAS card.
To create the card I first started by stamping and colouring my deer and branch images before cutting them out using my Silhouette Cameo machine. I then arranged where I wanted my images to go and stamped on my sentiment, before sticking my images down using adhesive foam. I then finally embellished the card with some white adhesive pearls from the kit.
I love how this card turned out. The stamp set is so super adorable, be sure to check it out!
Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.
Hello and Happy Friday!
Yay! The weekend is almost here! We have a busy one with a birthday party and taking the girls to a sing a long version of Frozen at the movies! What are your plans?
Today I have a cute little Christmas card I created using the newly released Penguin Pals Stamp & Colour kit by Uniquely Creative!
First I stamped and coloured two of those adorable penguins from the stamp set included in the kit, before cutting them out and covering them with the clear shimmer pen from the Sweet Succulents Stamp & Colour kit. Using the Fir Tree die I then die cut a glittery tree from some white glitter cardstock before sticking it down onto my card base. Using a sentiment from the Essential Stamp Kit, I stamped it directly under the die cut fir-tree, before sticking the little penguins to my card using adhesive foam. Finally I embellished the card with some of the sequins from the sequin mix included in the kit.
Seriously though, how super adorable are those penguins! I definitely had a create time creating with them!
Have a great day!
Last Friday the new Penguin Pals Stamp & Colour kit by Uniquely Creative was released and if you haven’t seen it yet, you definitely should! The kit is full of the cutest little penguin stamps that are perfect for holiday card making!
For my card today though, I used the sweet Woodland Creatures stamp set together with the Birch Tree Forest die which are both add ons you can also purchase for your kit!
I just loved the cute Deer in the set and that fun play on words sentiment!
To create this card I first started by die cutting the birch tree forest die from some white glitter cardstock and adhered it to my card base. I then stamped my sentiment to my card before stamping and colouring the cute little Deer. I then cut the deer out and added them to my card base using adhesive foam. I then finally embellished the card using white adhesive pearls that come in the Penguin Pals stamp and colour kit.
I hope this card inspires you to grab this super cute kit! Be sure to stop by the website for more details on the kit and all the add ons available.
Thanks for stopping by today!
How has the start of your weekend been? It’s nice and sunny here so we have been enjoying the nice spring weather as much as we can before it starts to rain again next week!
Today, I have a birthday card to share with you all that I created using the Knight in Shining Armor stamp set, for this week’s sketch challenge at MFT Stamps. Here is a look at the sketch for this week:
I keep the overall design of my card pretty clean and simple making the little knight the main focal image.
I started by first cutting down a smaller piece of white cardstock to adhere to my card base as per the sketch. I then die cut a Wonky Stitched Rectangle before lightly colouring it by blending some blue inks over it before adhering that down to my card using adhesive foam. Next I stamped and trimmed my sentiment from some white cardstock before placing that onto my card with some adhesive.
Next I stamped and coloured the cute little knight using Copic Sketch markers before die cutting him out and adding him to my card again using adhesive foam. Finally I embellished the card with some matching coloured blue and white sequins.
A super simple and easy to re-create birthday card.
Time for me to go and enjoy some more of this sunshine with my girls!
Have a great weekend and thank you for popping by!
Hello and Happy Saturday!
Have you been over to the Ink Road Blog to see this week’s Feature Friday post? This week is all about using the Compliments Volume 1 stamp set.
For my card I chose to team one of the sentiments up with the Meow Mix stamp set, because we all know cats think they are rulers of the household!
Be sure to stop by the Ink Road Stamps blog for all the details!
Have a great day!
How has your week been? School has started again so that means I now have more time to get creative and catch up on computer work while the kids are out of the house!
Yesterday, I sat down and created a birthday card for the current sketch challenge over at MFT Stamps. Here is a look at this week’s sketch.
For my card I chose to use the Once Upon a Time stamp set to create a whimsical birthday card perfect for a young girl.
I started by cutting a smaller panel of cardstock than my card base and die cut a circle from the edge as per the sketch. I then repeated that step so I could create a mask to put onto my card base and then ink blend a circle onto it. I used yellow and pink coloured inks to blend together creating an almost peachy look. I then stamped, coloured and die cut my princess before adhering the die cut panel to my card base and the princess, using adhesive foam. I then stamped some white hearts around the princess. For my sentiment I used the ‘Happy Birthday’ from the You’re the Sweetest stamp set which I then die cut out using a die from the Fishtail Banner Stax. Finally I embellished the card with some sparkling clear sequins.
Time for me to get some more crafting done but thank you for stopping by!
Have a wonderful day.
I thought I would quickly pop in again today to share a card I just put together for the current MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge. I think I’ll get it entered just in time! Anyway here is the sketch my card is based on:
I chose to create another Halloween card using the sketch and I started by first masking part of the top and bottoms of my card base, so that I could ink blend some purple colour to the background of my card as per the sketch.
I then die cut a wonky stitched rectangle and a wonky stitched circle for my card before adhering them down in place using adhesive foam.
Next I stamped, die cut and coloured my images using copic markers before also adhering them to my card base using some more adhesive foam.
For my sentiment I stamped and heat embossed it in white on some orange cardstock before die cutting that out and adhering to my card. Finally, I embellished the card with some sparkling clear sequins.
I hope you like it?! Thanks for stopping by 🙂
