Totally PAWesome!

Hi There

Well it officially looks like winter is coming to an end for us here. We’ve been having some really gorgeous warm spring like days, so I think Spring might have come early for us. The girls have been having so much fun playing outdoors and it’s nice to sit out in the sun with a book or magazine.

Getting back to crafty things though, I have another kitty cat themed card to share with you all. Again this is another one I created using my Silhouette Cameo machine and this cat image from the Silhouette online store.

Pawesome Card

I first created my sentiment and the paw prints in a Word document and printed it out onto some white cardstock, which I then trimmed down and adhered to my card base.

I then electronically cut the cat twice, once on black glitter cardstock and again on white glitter cardstock so that I could layer the different parts of the cat together. Once I glued the cat to my card, I coloured his ears and nose using and orange marker before covering them with glossy accents. Lastly I added some goggly eyes to the cat for a fun look.

Again my printer wasn’t working so great, but I love the streaked effect it gave to my coloured sentiment!

I hope you also have a pawesome day!

Meant to Be

Hello Everyone

I hope you all had a great weekend. In my previous post I mentioned that I had created a second card for Kaisercraft’s Saturday Challenge using three elements: something sparkly, something multi-dimensional and something floral. Here is that card.

Meant to Be Card

Again on this card I used the Ever After texture stamp set and the 6.5 x 6.5 patterned paper pad from the Something Blue collection. I die cut and hand rolled two of the flowers on the card using the patterned paper as well as a blue paper bloom. I chose to layer the elements together to the right hand side of my card and did so starting with the pearl flourish.

I’ve had the pearl flourish in my stash for a while now, and trimmed the bottom of each flourish off so that they were shorter before sticking them onto my card base. I then added the flowers which I embellished with a rhinestone and sparklet heart. Next I stamped my sentiment onto my card before trimming down a small piece of patterned paper to decorate the wood veneer bird.

Meant to Be Card - Close Up

Once I glued the patterned paper to the wooden bird and cut as much of the excess around the edges that I could off, I used a small craft file to file off any left over bits of patterned paper from around the bird’s edges. This also means I didn’t have to fussy cut around each curve in the shape of the bird. I then added it to my card using some adhesive foam for dimension.

Thanks for stopping by today, I appreciate it so much.

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
