Thank You Fairy Much!

Hi Everyone

Happy Hump Day! Today I’m popping in to share a cute Thank You card I created for a recent custom order.

A friend recently got married this past week and she asked me to create some thank you cards for her bridesmaids, flower girls, her mum and her new mother-in-law. Today’s card is the Thank You card that I created for her cute little flower girls.

Knowing young girls love fairies, I knew I had to use the sweet Pixie Dust stamp set by Avery Elle for this card.


I teamed them up with some die cut glitter and foil flowers as well as a vellum leaf to tie all the accents together. I then embellished the card with some pink rock candy by Queen & Co.

I can’t wait to find out what the flower girls thought of these fairy cards!

Have a wonderful day and enjoy the sunshine!

Flowers for Mum

Hi There

And happy Tuesday! Today I thought I would pop in and share a card with you all that I created as a kind of thank you card for my mum.

Using the layout of my Rose Congratulations card I posed here, I decided to keep the style pretty much the same but just changed up the sentiment.


Again I used the fun Modern Blooms set by MFT Stamps for this card, together with the Wonky Stitched Circle Stax.  For my sentiment though I used the Mum stamp by Skull & Cross Buns.  It’s really hard to find some really good Mum stamps (as opposed to Mom) here so when I stumbled upon this store it definitely made my day!  The font of it is gorgeous and it stamps beautifully.  Be sure to check out their stamps.  They are all handmade and gorgeous.

Anyway, after putting the card together, I finished it by embellishing it with some clear droplets and coloured sparklets for the flower centres.

I can’t wait to see mum’s reaction!

Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous night!

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #55

Hi Everyone

I hope your week has been great so far. Can you believe it has been a year of Share Joy Challenges this month?! The time has certainly flown by and I’ve had so much fun being apart of this wonderful design team and creating with Taylored Expressions gorgeous products.

Unfortunately this will be the last Share Joy Challenge as the challenge will now be monthly through the Taylored Expressions Newsletter. Be sure to keep a look out for it if you are a subscriber otherwise, subscribe now!

Well, onto our very last weekly challenge, and this week we have a sketch and/or Tic Tac Toe challenge for you all to play along with.


For my card I chose to use the sketch and create a fun Halloween card using the super cute Gone Batty stamp and die set.


I started off by cutting a strip of black patterned paper from the Playful Patterns – Haunted Paper Pack, and sticking it down onto my card base. Next I stamped and paper pieced my bats together using paper from the same paper pack. I then arranged them onto my card using adhesive foam. Finally I stamped on my sentiment and added some sequins from the Build A Scene: Halloween mix for embellishment.

I hope you all get a chance to play along with this challenge one last time. But be sure to check out the Taylored Expressions website for future challenges.

Have a great night and thank you for stopping by.

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #54

Hi There

I’m back again tonight with this week’s Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge.

This week we have a sketch and/or photo inspiration challenge for you all to play along with.


As you can see by my card below, I played along with the gorgeous inspiration photo for this week’s challenge. I absolutely love the colours of fall so knew I had to play along with the photo this week and create a fall themed thank you card using the gorgeous Fresh Florals stamp set.


To create my card I began by stamping my sentiment onto my card base before stamping and die cutting the flowers from the Fresh Florals set. The inks I used for them were Cherry Pop, Pumpkin and Candy Corn and they work together so beautifully. Next I arranged them around my sentiment using adhesive foam before finally finishing off the card with some sequins from the Wedding sequin mix.

Anyway, that’s all from me for today but be sure to stop by the challenge blog and check out some more gorgeous inspiration from the DT.

Have a wonderful night and happy crafting!

Rose Congratulations

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all having a great week so far? It feels like a while since I’ve popped in to share a post just for fun, but tonight I managed to find free time to create an entry for the MFT Stamps 2016 Card Design Superstar contest!

I chose to play with some of my favourite MFT products to create a CAS congratulations card perfect for an Engagement or Wedding, using the fun Modern Blooms stamp set.


To create my card I started off by die cutting a circle from the Wonky Stitched Circle Stax die set, and stamping my sentiment onto from the LJD Beautiful Baby stamp set.  Next I stamp my leaves and flowers onto a spare piece of white cardstock before die cutting the images out.  I then arranged them onto my wonky circle die cut and stuck them down with adhesive and foam.  Finally I stuck the wonky circle down onto my card base using adhesive foam, and embellished it with some clear droplets.

I absolutely love how this turned out and I love layering those gorgeous flowers!  It’s easy to tell why this is one of my favourite stamp sets!

Anyway, wish me luck and thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful night.
