Stitched Floral Hello

Hi Everyone!

How fast did the weekend go by! Today I have a CAS floral card to share with you all that I am going to enter into the 2017 Card Design Superstar contest by MFT Stamps, in the clean and simple category.

To create this card I first started by die cutting the stitched strip diagonally across the front of my card base before stamping and die cutting some soft coloured flowers from the Modern Blooms stamp set. Once I had arranged them how I wanted the flowers and leaves to go, I then stuck them down onto my card using adhesive foam.  Next I die cut the hello from some glitter cardstock and glued that down into position on my card before embellishing the blue flowers with some off white enamel dots.  Finally I added some extra embellishments to the card using some clear droplets.

I love how this turned out and I love the fun blue and grey colour combination.

Thanks for stopping by today.



Sending Cactus Hugs


Happy Wednesday! I have another fun Uniquely Creative Stamp & Colour Sweet Succulents card kit card to share with you all today! This one also using the gorgeous Foliage Border die that comes in the kit.

To create my card I first started by stamping and colouring that sweet little cactus girl image in using Copic Sketch markers, before cutting her out using my Silhouette Cameo machine.  I then added some white dots to the cactus using a white gel pen. I then stamped the sentiment onto some plain white cardstock and trimmed that down to size.  Using the Foliage Border die I die cut it from some vellum included in the card kit and trimmed it down before sticking it to my card base.  Next I adhered my image and sentiment, both using adhesive foam, before embellishing the card with some enamel dots from the kit.

I love how this simple card turned out and how the vellum foliage cut adds a subtle focal point to the card.

I hope you are all enjoying this new card kit? I’d love to see all your creations in the Uniquely Creative Subscriber Community over on Facebook!

Enjoy your day!



Free Hugs!

Hi Everyone

How was your weekend? I spent the weekend in the garden tidying everything up and getting rid of all the weeds before the rain arrived, so it was a really productive weekend here around the house!

Speaking of gardening, I thought I’d pop in today and share a garden related card with you all. This one was created using the Sweet Succulents Stamp & Colour kit by Uniquely Creative.

To create the card I started by first stamping and colouring the cute flower-pot and little succulent girl images in before using my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut the images out. I then stamped my sentiment onto some spare cardstock before assembling them all onto my card base using adhesive foam. Finally I embellished the card with some of the gorgeous coloured enamel dots included in the kit.

Aren’t those succulent kids so fun and cute!  Be sure to stop by the Uniquely Creative website for more info on these great card kits and for some more inspiration!

Have a wonderful day!



Fairy Garden Wishes

Hi There

Hope you are all enjoying your Tuesday so far? This morning I had to run around and do a few errands after getting the girls to kindy, but now I’m in the craft room and hoping to get creating very soon, but before I do that I wanted to share a card with you all that I created over the weekend for the current sketch challenge by MFT Stamps.

Here is this week’s sketch:

For my card I chose to make a sweet birthday card perfect for any little girl, using the adorable Fairy Happy stamp and die sets.

To created the card I started by creating a rectangular mask from some scrap cardstock before positioning that onto my card base and then stamping some flowers, butterflies and hearts from the stamp set, to create a rectangular background in line with the sketch.  I then stamped my sentiment just below the stamped flowers etc, and then stamped and coloured my images before die cutting them all out.  I then adhered the die cut images to my card using adhesive foam before finally adding some sparkling flower sequins for embellishment.

I also covered the fairy’s wings and the butterflies with clear Wink of Stella glitter so hopefully you can make that out a bit better in the photo below.

I had so much fun creating this sweet card and I hope it inspires you today.

Thanks for stopping by!



Grow a Happy Life

Hello and happy Wednesday!

Today I have another card to share with you that I created using the Sweet Succulents Stamp & Colour card kit by Uniquely Creative.

I teamed up the cute little succulent kiddos from the stamp set included in the card kit, with the fun cactus die that can be purchased separately.  How awesome is the detailing in that cactus die!

To create the card I started off by die cutting the cactus from both green and craft cardstock that is included in the kit, before cutting the pot off the kraft die cut cactus and gluing it down onto my green die card cactus. I then adhered the cactus to my card base, before stamping and colouring two of the succulent kids from the stamp set and cutting them out with my Silhouette Cameo and Pixscan mat. Next I stamped and trimmed my sentiment from some plain cardstock and adhered all the elements to my card base, making the kids look like they were standing and sitting on the sentiment strip. Finally I embellished the card with the enamel dots included in the card kit.

How fun are the sentiments in the stamp kit!  Be sure to stop by the Uniquely Creative website for all the details on this month’s fun kit!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.



Fairy Tale Unicorn

Hello Again!

If you are looking for my Uniquely Creative: Stamp & Colour post, just scroll down.

I’m popping in again today to quickly share a card I created over the weekend for the current MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge. Here is the sketch for the challenge:

For my card I used the Magical Unicorns stamp and die sets to create this fun birthday card.

To create this card I started by first cutting a smaller panel of white cardstock to adhere to my card base, as well as a strip of patterned paper from the Lucky Prints Paper Pack, and sticking that down onto my card.  Next I stamped, coloured and die cut the images for my card before covering them glitter using a clear Wink of Stella pen.  Once the images were dry I then stuck them down onto my card, using adhesive foam on the unicorn to give it a bit of dimension, and just plain glue tape for the rainbow.  I stamped my sentiment onto some left over white card stock and trimmed that down to size before sticking that to my card also using adhesive foam.  Finally, I then embellished the card with some clear sequins.

Here is a better angle of the card showing the shimmer/glitter I put on the unicorn and the rainbow:

I love how shimmery the card is in real life! Time for me to go and sneak in some more craft time before I have to go pick the kiddos up from school!

Enjoy the rest of your day!



Succ Without You

Hi There

How was your weekend? This past weekend the Melbourne Paperific Expo took place and at the event Uniquely Creative launched their brand new Stamp & Colour monthly kits!

The first kit for August is all about sweet succulents and is available for purchase now at the Uniquely Creative website. Here’s a peek at what you get in these fun kits at a really great price!

The kit also has add on stamps and dies available for separate purchase, and my card that I created below uses the Plants & Pots stamp set to create this fun succulent card.

I created this card by stamping and colouring the pot of succulents from the stamp set, as well as that cute little gnome, before tying some of the natural string from the card kit around the pot and securing it with a bow and an enamel dot. I then stuck the pot down onto my card base using adhesive foam then I stamped and cut out my sentiment before also adding that to my card using adhesive foam. I finished the card by embellishing it with some enamel dots from the card kit.

Be sure to stop by the website for more details on this fun new card kit!  I will be back again soon with another project using this great kit!

Have a great day!



Dad Tool Charms

Hi Everyone

Did you all have a wonderful weekend? The girls and I were in Manjimup with my family for the weekend so it was nice and relaxing and great to catch up with everyone.

With Father’s Day coming up soon, I thought I would use the current MFT Sketch Challenge sketch to create a Father’s Day card for my dad using the Tool Charms die set as well as a couple of other MFT dies. Here is the sketch:

Being a farmer, my dad is really good with DIY and tools so I knew this die set would be perfect for a card for him.

I started by trimming down some grey cardstock to stick over my card base, before creating a smaller white panel of cardstock to go over the top.  That way it looks like I have a grey border around the white panel on my card base.

Using the Stitched Strip die-namics, I then die cut one side of my white panel as per the sketch. I then die cut the tool charms from some silver and red foil cardstock before assembling them together and then sticking down onto my card base in place of the circle on the sketch.

Using the uppercase High-Rise die-namics I then die cut my ‘dad’ sentiment and also stuck them onto my card base using adhesive foam. Finally I then embellished the card with some matching coloured enamel dots.

I can’t wait to see what dad thinks of this on Father’s Day!

Have a wonderful day.
