Glitter Love

Hi There!

Happy Friday! It’s almost the weekend and today I thought I would share another Valentine’s Day card with you all, this one I created using some sweet Papertrey Ink products to play along with their 11th Anniversary Celebrations! Can you believe they have been around for 11 years? It has gone so fast!

For today’s card I chose to play along with their sketch challenge and the sketch I used was this one below that Keeway Tsao used to create her gorgeous card.

Using the sketch I decided to use the Limitless Layers: Heart Stitches Die Collection together with the Wet Paint stamps and dies to create a Valentine’s Day card.

I began creating this card by first adding a strip of silver glitter cardstock to both the top and bottom of my card base, before cutting down a smaller panel of plain white cardstock and sticking that down to the top. Next I die cut the heart from the Heart Stitches die collection from some red glitter cardstock, as well as the Love sentiment from the Wet Paint die set from silver glitter cardstock. I then adhered them in place onto my card base, using adhesive foam for the smaller heart and the die cut sentiment. Finally I stamped the remainder of sentiment onto my card before adding on some sparkling clear sequins for embellishment.

Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Hello Everyone!

Wow! Can you believe we are in February now?! December and January was a very busy time for us here so I’m sorry I haven’t been around the blog in a while!

The girls are now in full-time school so I will have more free time to create and share my cards with you all on a much more regular basis! So onto today’s card. With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I thought it would be fun to create a CAS Valentine’s card using a fun digital image I found from Inkley Studio on Etsy.

The clip art set had some super cute food in love images but I couldn’t resist using the super cute hotdog image, paired with a fun punny sentiment!

What makes this card super CAS and easy to replicate is that I just printed out the image onto some thick white cardstock, which I then cut out electronically using my Silhouette Cameo machine. I then printed out my sentiment onto a panel of cardstock before adhering them all down onto my card base.

To give the image a bit more flair, I coated the lettuce leaves using a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen, and I also coated the cute little hearts with some glossy accents for some shine and dimension.  Finally, I just added some adhesive rhinestones to the card for a bit more embellishment.

Don’t these two just go perfectly together?!

See you all soon with another Valentine’s Day creation.



Santa Sleigh Greetings


Happy Friday! Hope you have all had a great week so far and have got all your Christmas shopping done?! My girls are counting down the days to Christmas so all I’ve been hearing today is “only 3 more sleeps”!

Today I have a CAS Christmas card to share with you all that features the inlaid die cut technique. For my card I chose to play with the super fun On Dasher, On Dancer die by Taylored Expressions together with a sentiment from their Peek-a-Boo Christmas stamp set.

I started by first cutting a panel of white cardstock the exact same size as my card base before die cutting the On Dasher, On Dancer image from it. I then die cut the image again from some gold foil cardstock. I then stamped and heat embossed my sentiment onto the card panel under the negative die cut, using gold metallic embossing powder. After gluing my panel onto my card base, I then adhered the gold foil die cut inside the die cut on the panel. Finally I then embellished the card with some sequins from TE’s Wedding mix.

This was such a fun and quick card to make and the fact that the die cutting was inlaid makes it perfect for mass producing and posting out as the card is completely flat like a one layer card!

I hope you have a wonderful night and thank you for stopping by.



Colourful Christmas Trees

Hi there

We are just over half way through the week already and before you know it, Christmas day will be here!

Today I’m sharing the first of many Christmas cards I have created over the past few weeks and today’s card was created using the Winter Trees die by MFT Stamps, together with a sentiment from the Yuletide clear stamp set by Kaisercraft.

I created this card by first cutting a panel of silver glitter cardstock, the same size as my base and then adhering it to the card base. Next I cut a smaller panel of white cardstock, before sticking that down onto my card so that the silver glitter paper creates a frame effect around the smaller white panel of cardstock. I then die cut the Winter Trees from pink, blue and green cardstock before lining them up onto my card and sticking them down with adhesive foam and tape adhesive. I stuck every second tree down using adhesive foam to give them some dimension. Next I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment onto a small piece of cardstock using silver glitter embossing powder, before adhering that to my card base again using adhesive foam. Finally I added on some clear sequins for extra embellishment.

I love the non-traditional colours in this card.  It was so fun to create something outside of the normal Christmas colours!

Thanks for stopping by today.  See you all tomorrow with another Christmas card share!



Custom Kitty Cat Card

Hello Everyone

Only a few more sleeps until Christmas! Have you got all your holiday shopping done yet? I managed to get mine done early this year as I knew with the girls’ birthday party last week, that it would be a super busy time so I wanted that worry all out of the way!

Anyway, before I get to sharing some Christmas cards with you all, I thought I would pop in and share a custom card I created for a cat lover who was celebrating her birthday recently. Her boyfriend got in touch and wanted me to create a cat themed birthday card for her. She has two black cats, so I knew I had to create something with some cute little black kitties.

I used some cute little cats from the Halloween Feet digital clipart file by Decorartist. How sweet are those cats? Such a fun set to play with!  After printing them out onto some 300gsm plain white cardstock, I cut them out digitally using my Silhouette Cameo machine and Pixscan mat.

After arranging them onto my card base, I then stamped the sentiment down using my Mini Misti.  The ‘Happy Birthday’ is from the It’s Your Day stamp set by Hero Arts, and the custom sentiment was created using the Jessie’s ABCs by Lawn Fawn.

After sticking down the cats using adhesive foam, I then coated them in a layer of shimmer using a clear Wink of Stella pen.  Here is a close up look of the shimmer on the cats:

Finally I then embellished the card with some pink and clear coloured heart sparklets by Kaisercraft.

I really hope Maddy loves her birthday card!

Thank you for stopping by and I’ll be back tomorrow with the first of many Christmas cards to share with you all in the lead up to big day!

Happy crafting!



Raccoon Hugs

Hello There!

Wow, so so sorry it has been a while since my last post! December is truly a very busy time of year in our household. I have my girls birthday on the 22nd but we are having their party earlier (this weekend) so that they can have their kindy friends come along before the holidays! So I have been busy designing and creating invitations, party decor and lolly bags and tags! I’ll share all of those with you all in the coming few days leading up to the party.

Anyway today I have a super cute card to share with you all that I created using the absolutely adorable Woodland Creatures stamp set which you can find as an add-on to the super fun Stamp & Colour – Penguin Pals kit by Uniquely Creative.

I love this adorable stamp set, so I wanted to create are really cute CAS card using that sweet little raccoon.  I started by first stamping and colouring the raccoon and the branch before letting the ink dry.  I then cut the images out using my Silhouette Cameo and Pixscan Mat, before stamping my sentiment to my card base from the All Occasions stamp set.  I stuck the images down onto my card using adhesive foam before finally embellishing my card with some adhesive pearls included in the kit.

This was such a fun and cute card to create.  Be sure to stop by the Uniquely Creative website for information on the kits as well as more design team inspiration.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful day!



You’re So Charming

Hi Everyone

So sorry it has been a while since my last post. November and December are busy months for us in the lead up to Christmas, with getting everything organised for school next year for my girls, planning their birthday and getting ready for Christmas!

But I did manage to sneak in some time today to create a card for the current MFT Stamps sketch challenge. Here is a look at this week’s sketch:

Keeping pretty much true to the sketch (I just substituted the square for a circle), I created a whimsical card using the Knight in Shining Armor stamp set.

I first started by die cutting my circular frame using the Wonky Stitched Circle Stax dies and then using the negative to create a frame for me to ink blend a circle directly onto my card base before gluing the frame down onto my card base.

I then stamped, coloured and die cut my images for the card, along with die cutting some Stitched Clouds from glitter cardstock.  I then arranged all the elements where I wanted them before sticking them down with glue and adhesive foam.  I then stamped my sentiment onto a strip of cardstock and also stuck that to my card base using adhesive foam.  Finally I embellished the card with some blue enamel dots.

How cute is this stamp set?!  I love how you can create some really fun and cute cards for boys, which is definitely out of my comfort zone as I tend to create more girly things, but it’s good have some on hand.

Anyway I better get some things organised for tomorrow but thank you for stopping by tonight!



Love You Deerly


How are you all today? It’s a super hot day here today, so I’m trying to stay cool in the craft room, as well as dreading the fact summer will soon be here! This year has just flown by super fast!

Today I have a card I created using the current Stamp & Colour – Penguin Pals card kit by Uniquely Creative. For my card I used the Woodland Creatures add-on stamp set to create this sweet CAS card.

To create the card I first started by stamping and colouring my deer and branch images before cutting them out using my Silhouette Cameo machine. I then arranged where I wanted my images to go and stamped on my sentiment, before sticking my images down using adhesive foam. I then finally embellished the card with some white adhesive pearls from the kit.

I love how this card turned out.  The stamp set is so super adorable, be sure to check it out!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.
