My Little Knight

Hello Again!

How has the start of your weekend been? It’s nice and sunny here so we have been enjoying the nice spring weather as much as we can before it starts to rain again next week!

Today, I have a birthday card to share with you all that I created using the Knight in Shining Armor stamp set, for this week’s sketch challenge at MFT Stamps. Here is a look at the sketch for this week:

I keep the overall design of my card pretty clean and simple making the little knight the main focal image.

I started by first cutting down a smaller piece of white cardstock to adhere to my card base as per the sketch. I then die cut a Wonky Stitched Rectangle before lightly colouring it by blending some blue inks over it before adhering that down to my card using adhesive foam. Next I stamped and trimmed my sentiment from some white cardstock before placing that onto my card with some adhesive.

Next I stamped and coloured the cute little knight using Copic Sketch markers before die cutting him out and adding him to my card again using adhesive foam. Finally I embellished the card with some matching coloured blue and white sequins.

A super simple and easy to re-create birthday card.

Time for me to go and enjoy some more of this sunshine with my girls!

Have a great weekend and thank you for popping by!



Magical Princess Birthday

Hi There

How has your week been? School has started again so that means I now have more time to get creative and catch up on computer work while the kids are out of the house!

Yesterday, I sat down and created a birthday card for the current sketch challenge over at MFT Stamps. Here is a look at this week’s sketch.

For my card I chose to use the Once Upon a Time stamp set to create a whimsical birthday card perfect for a young girl.

I started by cutting a smaller panel of cardstock than my card base and die cut a circle from the edge as per the sketch. I then repeated that step so I could create a mask to put onto my card base and then ink blend a circle onto it. I used yellow and pink coloured inks to blend together creating an almost peachy look. I then stamped, coloured and die cut my princess before adhering the die cut panel to my card base and the princess, using adhesive foam. I then stamped some white hearts around the princess. For my sentiment I used the ‘Happy Birthday’ from the You’re the Sweetest stamp set which I then die cut out using a die from the Fishtail Banner Stax. Finally I embellished the card with some sparkling clear sequins.

Time for me to get some more crafting done but thank you for stopping by!

Have a wonderful day.



You’re Fab-boo-lous!

Hello Again!

I thought I would quickly pop in again today to share a card I just put together for the current MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge. I think I’ll get it entered just in time! Anyway here is the sketch my card is based on:

I chose to create another Halloween card using the sketch and I started by first masking part of the top and bottoms of my card base, so that I could ink blend some purple colour to the background of my card as per the sketch.

I then die cut a wonky stitched rectangle and a wonky stitched circle for my card before adhering them down in place using adhesive foam.

Next I stamped, die cut and coloured my images using copic markers before also adhering them to my card base using some more adhesive foam.

For my sentiment I stamped and heat embossed it in white on some orange cardstock before die cutting that out and adhering to my card. Finally, I embellished the card with some sparkling clear sequins.

I hope you like it?! ¬†Thanks for stopping by ūüôā



Ghostly Greetings

Hello Again

Happy hump day! I have a fun spooky card to share with you all today that I again created for the 2017 Card Design Superstar contest by MFT Stamps. This card is for the Colouring Virtuoso category.

Keeping the card clean and simple I decided to create a little Halloween scene with some of those adorable ghosts from the Fab-BOO-lous Friends stamp set.

I first started by stamping, colouring and die cutting out the images I wanted to use on my card, before die cutting a circle from some plain cardstock to create a mask for my ink blended background. Once I had ink blended my background I then arranged the Halloween images where I wanted them to go onto my card and stuck them down using adhesive foam. Next I stamped my sentiment onto some plain white cardstock, before trimming it down to size and also sticking that down onto my card base with adhesive foam. Finally I stamped some small stars to the ink blended circle and finished the card off with some clear sparkling sequins.

By no means am I a colouring virtuoso but I thought I would have a go at entering the contest anyway. I’m just a newbie to copic colouring, but like how this card turned out.

Thank you for popping by and enjoy the rest of your day!



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!
