Kisses

Hi there

It’s finally the end of the week and it has been a busy one for me. I’ve been creating lots of cards this week during my spare time for a large custom order which I’m so honoured and excited to be doing. I’ll share more details on that with you all soon though.

The card I have to share with you all today is one I submitted for a publication call for Valentine’s Day cards but unfortunately it wasn’t accepted.

I created this card using my Silhouette Cameo machine and a stamped sentiment by Hero Arts.

Heart Kisses Card

I wanted to create an image of someone blowing kisses so when I found this silhouette of a girl blowing bubbles I knew it would be perfect. I just altered the image by deleting the bubbles and replacing them with these heart-shaped bubbles I also found in the Silhouette online store.

Heart Kisses Card - Close Up

Once I cut the heat bubbles and the silhouette of the girl out. I stuck them onto my card and glued every second heart down using adhesive foam to add a bit of dimension to the card, before stamping my sentiment to the bottom in red ink to complete the card.

Okay, time for me to go as I still have a bit more work to do in the craft room today, but have a fun weekend everyone!

Love You Always Card

Hello

Finally it’s quiet around here! The girls are now fast asleep after burning off some energy running around outside all morning, in this gorgeous spring weather we are finally having. I love spring time here and the nice sunny days. I just wish summer were like that!

Anyway while it’s quiet I thought I’d share with you all a card I created last night playing with some gorgeous Papertrey Ink dies and stamps.

Love You Always Card

To create this CAS card I positioned one of the heart dies onto my cardstock piece, then ran it through my Cuttlebug before positioning the second die slightly overlapping the first die cut, so that it would create two joined hearts. Finally I glued some red foil cardstock to the back of the die cut piece (hopefully you can make some of it out in the picture) and stamped on my sentiment in a matching red ink, before gluing the panel down to my card base.

That’s all from me for today. I’m off to get in a little creative time before my girls wake up.

Thanks for stopping by :)

Hipster Hooray!

Hello and Happy Saturday!

I’m still down in Manjimup at the moment and enjoying every minute of it. The weather has been so gorgeous here, nice and sunny and the girls love running around all the cherry trees.

I have another birthday card to share with you all today, and this one includes a funky cat. All things hipster are all the rage here at the moment, so I thought this hip little kitty would be fun for a funky hipster birthday card.

Hipster Birthday Card

I created my own sentiment in a word document using a font I downloaded by Lettering Delights. I then cut this cat image from the Silhouette online store from some cardstock, before piecing the kitty together and sticking it to my card using adhesive foam. Finally I then gave it a brush over with my clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to give it some glittery shine. Unfortunately from the angle of the photo you can’t really make that out.

Time for me to go and veg on the couch for a bit, but thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Graffiti

Hi Everyone

I hope your week has been going well so far.  I’m down at the family farm in Manjimup this week with the girls, having a bit of a break with my family, and thought I would quickly pop in and share a card with you all.

I created a graffiti style one layer birthday card which was inspired by this gorgeous card by Maile Belles.

Happy Birthday Graffiti Card

Using some bright coloured mid-tone shadow inks by Hero Arts, I stamped the ‘happy’ sentiment all around the bottom half of the card, before stamping ‘birthday’ and the cute little heart image onto the card using black ink.

I then embellished the card with some enamel dots in similar colours to that I used on the card. I haven’t made a one layer card in such a long time but I like how this turned out. I’d love to know what you think?

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Happy Father’s Day!

Hello Again!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dads out there today! I hope you have a wonderful day with your families and get spoilt – you deserve it!

Today we are having breakfast with all of my family for my dad, then I’ll take my hubby out for a coffee with the girls for his Father’s Day.  I have made a card for him as well and will share that with you all shortly.

My dad is a farmer and loves his machinery so the card I made him features one of his favourite farm machines – the tractor! I think last time I was down at the farm I counted about 6 tractors in my dad’s shed! Lol.  I found the tractor in the Silhouette Online Store and cut the parts for it from red, black, grey and diamond plate patterned paper and cardstock.

Dad Tractor Card

I then pieced the tractor together and stuck it to a panel of white cardstock which I trimmed one side off at an angle, then stamped my sentiment to it and embellished it with some enamel dots. I added another strip of diamond plate patterned paper to the edge of my card base before adhering my panel down onto the card.

I can’t wait to see what my dad thinks of this card. I hope you all have a great day today and enjoy what’s left of the weekend.

Hugs
