Floral Anniversary

Hi There

I hope you all had a great weekend? We spent the weekend down south with my family which was somewhat nice. Unfortunately my granddad is terminally ill, so we all headed down to spend some time with him, and so the great grandkids could all spend time with him.

He is such an amazing man and we all love him so much. It’s hard to write this, but at the moment crafting is the only thing that can keep my mind occupied, otherwise I’ll end up breaking down in tears, so I thought I’d try to keep my mind occupied by sharing an anniversary card with you all.

I created this CAS card in a blue colour scheme, using a sentiment by Papertrey Ink, together with some floral stamps by MFT Stamps.

To create this card I started by stamping my sentiment to the middle of my card base, before stamping some floral elements down onto the right hand corner of my card base.  I then stamped another blue flower onto a separate piece of cardstock, so that I could die cut it out and stick it onto my floral arrangement with some adhesive foam, to give the corner of the card a bit of height and dimension.

Finally, I added some clear droplet embellishments as well as embellishing the centre of the raised flower with an adhesive rhinestone.

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope to be back soon with another card share, but please bear with me while we go through this tough time.

Thank you so much for your support.

Hello Friends

Today I managed to sneak in some crafty time and create a card for MFT Stamps’ current Colour Challenge. Here are the gorgeous colours we needed to play along with:

For my card I chose to make a CAS floral card using the Build-able Blooms stamp and die set, together with a sentiment from the All Occasion Sentiment stamp set.

To create this card I started by cutting an angled panel for the bottom of my card base using a die from the Blueprints 18 die set. Next I stamped the last half of my sentiment onto it along the start of the angle. I then stamped and die cut the various floral items from the Build-able Blooms stamp set and arranged them onto my card base and stuck them down using adhesive foam. I then stamped the first part of my sentiment onto the top half of my card base before adding some sparkling clear sequins for embellishment.

I love the colour combo for this challenge and wish I had more time to create some more cards using it!

I hope this card inspires you today. Have a wonderful night.



Birthday Bunny Hugs

Hello Everyone

Happy Saturday! It’s raining non stop here in Perth today, so I thought I would jump on the computer real quick and share a super fast CAS birthday card with you all.

Nothing beats sitting in the craft room on a rainy day, so I put together this quick birthday card while the hubby is looking after the girls! The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp and the cute little bunny is from the Petite Plushies stamp set by Clearly Besotted Stamps.

To create this card real quick all I did was start by stamping my sentiment onto my card base, before stamping and paper piecing together the adorable little bunny.  I then coated the bunny in glossy accents to give him some shine, before sticking on some sparkling clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.

A super quick card to put together last minute, if you need something for a child’s birthday!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!



Unicorns & Rainbows

Hi There

How is everyone’s week going so far?

Today I’m popping in to share a card with you all that I created for the current MFT Stamps sketch challenge. Here is the sketch:

I decided to play with the super fun and cute Magical Unicorns stamp and die sets that I received as a gift from a very dear friend of mine.

I started off by cutting a smaller piece of cardstock to stick down to my card base leaving a bit on the left hand side as per the sketch. I thought about putting a strip of pattered paper here but decided to leave it plain and CAS. I then stamped my sentiment onto some left over cardstock and then stamped, die cut and coloured all my images in using Copic Sketch markers. Once I had finished the colouring I then assembled all my images onto my card base and stuck them down using adhesive and adhesive foam. Finally I stuck on some clear sequins. I arranged the images and embellishments in an oval like shape so that I didn’t have to die cut one. That way the images and embellishments would be my main focal point.

I coloured in lots more of these cute unicorns, so stay tuned for some more cards featuring them very soon!

Have a wonderful day!



Happy Mother’s Day!

Hello and Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope you are all having a wonderful time with your families on this special day and that all the mums out there are being spoilt!

Today we are going out for breakfast with all my family and my parents, so I made this special card for mum, using the gorgeous Bold Blooms stamp and co-ordinating die set by MFT Stamps. The sentiment is a stamp I purchased from a UK shop called Skull & Crossbuns, as here in Australia and also in the UK we spell mum with a ‘u’!

To create this card I started by stamping the flowers down the left hand side of my card base before stamping my sentiment next to them.  I then stamped some more bold blooms on some separate cardstock which I then die cut out so that I could add them to my card using adhesive foam for a bit of pop!  Finally I embellished the card with some clear sequins.

Thank you all for stopping by today and again, Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mums out there!



Little Elephant Birthday Card

Hi There

Today I’m popping in quickly to share a birthday card I created for the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge. It’s an anything goes challenge so I thought I would create another card using the cute elephant from the Birthday Celebration stamp set.

I started off this card by positioning the elephant and sentiment on my card base before stamping them on. Next I stamped the elephant again onto some patterned paper so that I could paper piece him onto the stamped image on my card. Finally I stamped some green stars around the elephant and embellished the top of his party hat with a glittery rhinestone.

I tend to usually add height to my cards using adhesive foam, but for this one I decided to keep it all a one layer card, which is perfect for mass producing and sending in the mail!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today.



Two-Two Trouble!

Hello Everyone

With the Clearly Besotted Stamps store up and running again along with an awesome new release, I thought I would create two cute cards for my girls who love ballerinas!

Using the super adorable Trouble in a Tutu stamp set I created these two cards in my girls’ favourite colours.

To create these two cards I started off my stamping the cloud outlines onto my cards bases using silver ink, and the sentiment just below using black ink.  Next I stamped two of the sweet ballerinas onto plain white cards stock, as well as patterned paper, before paper piecing them together.  I then stuck the ballerinas down on to the card bases using adhesive foam, before adding on some matching coloured sequin and rhinestone star embellishments.

Here is a look at the pink ballerinas:

My girls will definitely love these cards! How adorable are those little hippos! I’m so glad Clearly Besotted is back. Their designs are always super cute and fun to work with!

Thank you for stopping by today!



I Need Coffee Right Meow!!

Hi There

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I thought I’d play along with the current challenge over at Simon Says Stamp which is an anything goes challenge featuring Newton’s Nook Design products.

I love Newton’s Nook because of the super cute kitty images, so I just had to play along and create a fun card perfect for a coffee and cat lover! How fun is that sentiment?!

For this card I started by stamping my images and colouring them in using some Copic Sketch Markers. I then stamped my sentiment onto my card base and stuck the images down using adhesive foam. Finally I added some sequin embellishments to my card and coloured the kitty’s white fur in using a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.

I’m only new to Copic colouring so I still need some more practice but I do like how this card turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
