Much to Celebrate

Hi There

With the weekend almost here I thought I would pop in today and share a fun birthday card I created last night. The best part about this card is that it can fit any type of celebration as the word ‘birthday’ isn’t anywhere on the actual card, so let’s just say we are going to celebrate the fact that it’ll be the weekend again very soon! Lol

The stamp set and patterned paper I used are both from Kaisercraft’s awesome Pop! collection, which is full of fun and yummy images and bright happy colours.

Celebrate Sprinkles Card

I glued the patterned paper to my card base, before die cutting two panels of white cardstock using a die from Simon Says Stamp’s Stitched Slopes and Hills set to create the split on the card front that the sprinkles are peeking through. On the panel at the top I stamped and heat embossed my sentiment using a bright blue embossing powder.

The sentiment in the Pop! stamp set comes with the words ‘There is much to’ sitting right above the word ‘celebrate’, so I carefully cut it apart using some scissors. A great thing about clear stamps is that they are very flexible, so I curved the stamp around on my acrylic block to make it look like the sentiment is flowing along the wavy die cut line.

I then added some bright enamel dots to the card front in colours matching those of the sprinkles, to give the effect that some of the sprinkles had scattered over the card.

I love the brightness of this card. You could even change-up the colour of the heat embossed sentiment to any colour of the rainbow too.

Thanks for stopping by friends! Enjoy the upcoming weekend!

Thanks a Bunch!


Can you believe we are already half way through another week? Time just flies by way to fast these days!

Anyway last week I used some birthday money I received and ordered some new My Favorite Things goodies to play with and can you believe it arrived on Monday! Talk about awesome service! Usually when I order stuff from the US it takes a good few weeks to arrive, so I was really excited to find it waiting on my door step for me when I got home on Monday!

Last night once the girls were in bed, I got to sit down and play with the new Modern Blooms stamp set and matching die-namics. I absolutely LOVE how these flowers have different stamping layers to give them a more realistic look.

Flowers to me are a great way of saying thank you to someone, so I created a Thank You card featuring a bunch of the new modern blooms, together with some twine to give it a bit of a natural/rustic look.

Floral Thank You Card

I played around stamping and layering nearly all of the flowers in the set, using lots of different coloured inks, before settling on a soft pink and peach colour scheme for this card. I stamped my sentiment onto my card base using a sentiment from the new LJD stamp set, You’re the Sweetest.  Once I had die cut out all of my flowers and leaves, I tied a double bow using twine and glued it down to my card base, before layering the flowers over the top and sticking them down with adhesive foam. Finally, I embellished the centres of the flowers with adhesive pearls.

I had so much fun stamping all those different flowers together using different colours. I have quite a lot of spare die cut ones left over, which I will have to use on a project very soon, so watch this space for some more Modern Blooms projects!

Have a great day!

Happy Anniversary

Hi Everyone

Did you all have a wonderful Easter break? We spent the break down at my family’s farm and the girls absolutely loved it. I love seeing them have fun running around the orchard and playing in the paddock grass. They always have a great time when we go down there, so I try to go as much as I can.

It’s a nice rainy Autumn day here today so I thought I would share a card that I created last night.

Anniversary Blooms Card

I haven’t made an anniversary card in a while, but when I saw the beautiful Glow patterned paper from Kaisercraft’s All That Glitters collection, I fell in love with the soft colours and knew it would be perfect for a wedding or anniversary card.

I made the patterned paper peek through a diagonal split on my card, which I heat embossed my sentiment onto using Brown Sugar embossing powder by American Crafts. The colour was a perfect match to the soft colours in the patterned paper. I then added some matching paper blooms, and adhesive embellishments to finish off the card.

A fun clean and simple anniversary card.

I’m off now to sneak in some more card making while I can, but enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Happy Easter!

Hello and Happy Easter!

I hope you are all enjoying today and are not overdosing on chocolate! Speaking of chocolate I thought I would share a Happy Easter card with you all today featuring yummy looking Easter eggs!

Easter Egg Wreath Card

My card today was created using my Silhouette Cameo machine, some bright patterned paper, cardstock and adhesive pearls by Kaisercraft. I love the bright happy papers and patterns in the Pop! collection I knew they would be perfect for fun and colourful Easter eggs.

I used this gorgeous Easter Wreath cut file by Miss Kate Cuttables which I downloaded from the Silhouette Online Store and electronically cut from my various papers and cardstock.

Once everything was cut, I then printed my sentiment onto my card base using the Silhouette machine again and a green coloured glitter sketch pen. I assembled the wreath, added a double twine bow and embellished the wreath and the card base with adhesive pearls in matching colours to the patterned papers I used.

I better go and get ready for our family Easter lunch, but I just wanted to thank you all for taking the time to visit today, and wish you all a very happy and safe Easter break.

Easter Bunny Wishes

Hi Everyone

It’s a busy day here today being Good Friday. After lunch today we are heading down south to spend the Easter long weekend with my family in Manjimup, which I am so looking forward to. It will also be extra special watching my girls hunt for chocolate eggs etc as this will be the first year they really understand everything about it!

Being the Easter holidays, I thought I would share a fun springy Easter card with you all.

Easter Bunny Wreath Card

I used the Danville Wreath die by Simon Says Stamp to create the spring coloured wreath. To do this I die cut it from three different colours of cardstock so that I could fussy cut the flowers from the pink and yellow cardstock to stick on top of the green wreath which is my base. Once I had finished with the wreath I glued it down to my card base and added a cute little bunny from the Doodlebug Design Inc Bunny and Friends reversible die cut collection, peeking out from the middle.

Easter Bunny Wreath Card - Sentiment Close Up

For my sentiment I actually printed it through my Silhouette Cameo machine using a pink glitter sketch pen and the Curlz MT font which is a standard Microsoft font. I love how glittery the sketch pens are! I then added some pastel coloured adhesive pearls to the centres of each of the flowers.

I hope you enjoy your day today. Thank you for stopping by :)
