Giraffe Kisses & Cuddles

Hi Everyone

I hope you are enjoying the day so far. Today has been relatively quiet here, so I grabbed some time in the craft room this afternoon and created a few cards.

One of those is this fun CAS style card for a new baby.


Using the sweet Petite Plushies stamp set by Clearly Besotted Stamps, I stamped and paper pieced the cute little giraffe from the set before adhering it with adhesive foam to my card base.  I then stamped the sentiment below the image and embellished the card with some matching coloured enamel dots and some rhinestone stars.

Definitely a super quick and fun card to create.  Time for me to go and get some rest, but I’ll be back soon with another card to share.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great night!

Magical Princess

Hello There

Happy Wednesday. Today I have a fun birthday card to share with you all that I created with some new MFT Stamps products.

The new Once Upon a Time set is soo adorable and perfect for creating cards for kids. I know my girls both love princesses so I created this princess birthday card.

To create this card I started off by stamping and paper piecing both the castle and one of the princesses from the set. I then stuck them down to a panel of white cardstock which I had trimmed smaller than my card base. I then adhered the panel to my card base using adhesive foam, before die cutting out a fish tail, stamping my sentiment onto it and adhering it down to the front of my card. Finally I then embellished the card using matching coloured sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I hope this card has inspired you today. Thank you for stopping by!

Gold Floral Thanks

Hi Everyone

How have you all been? Sorry I’ve been MIA lately, my girls started Kindy last week so I have been getting all organised for that and getting into a new routine! I will now have more time to create and post now that they’ll be at school a few days a week so the blog will finally be back to regular postings!

Yesterday, I created a floral thanks card using some beautiful MFT Stamps products for their weekly sketch challenge, but unfortunately ran out of time to get this post up before the deadline, but I’ll share the card with you all anyway. You can see the sketch here.

Using the Modern Blooms set I stamp layered some flowers in orange and peach colours before sticking them to my card base using adhesive foam. I then die cut the Thanks sentiment from some gold foil before sticking it to the top of the flowers and embellishing the card with some clear droplets by Pretty Pink Posh.

This was a super quick and easy CAS card to create and I love the soft colours and how it turned out.

Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today.

Heart Day Breeze

Hi There

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend so far. I got some more craft time in this weekend to create another Valentine’s Day card, this time using some sweet Simon Says Stamp products.

Using the super cute Heart Breeze die, I chose to die cut and in-lay it into my card base using red and silver foil cardstock.

Once I had all the elements inlaid into my card base, I then stamped my heart sentiment from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set in silver ink, before die cutting it using the matching die and adding it to my card. To finish off the card I added some matching coloured sequins for extra embellishment.

I hope this card inspires you today. Enjoy what’s left of your weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Purr-fect Kitty

Hi Everyone

Things have been flat-out here lately, and super hot during this summer but I finally managed to get into the craft room and get started on some Valentine’s Day creations.

I used some Christmas money to buy some new goodies to play with from Newton’s Nook Designs including the Newton Loves Coffee set. I absolutely love cats so I just had to get some super cute Newton stamps and dies.  I’ll have some more kitty cards coming up over the next few weeks so keep a look out!

I went with a soft colour combo of whites, greys and pink for this card and paper pieced little Newton and the coffee cup. I then coloured his ears and nose with a marker before colouring the lid of the coffee cup with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. I then stamped my sentiment to my card base, stuck Newton down using some adhesive foam, before embellishing the card with sequins and enamel hearts.

I love how this card turned out. It’s a perfect Valentine’s for anyone who loves coffee and cats!

Have a great day!
