Elephant Wishes

Hello

How are you all going? I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break. We spent some time down south with my family so it was a nice and relaxing time with lots of food and definitely lots of chocolate!

The girls are back at school today so I thought I’d create a fun birthday card and share it all with you today.  I created this card using the super cute elephant and sentiment from the Birthday Celebration set by Simon Says Stamp.

To create this card I started by cutting a smaller panel of white cardstock and diagonally cutting the top off to place onto my card base using adhesive foam. I then stamped my sentiment just under the diagonal cut before stamping and paper piecing that gorgeous little elephant together. Next I stuck the little elephant onto my card using some more adhesive foam, before embellishing the card with some fun coloured sequins.  I also embellished the top of the elephant’s hat with a pink flower rhinestone.

Honestly I can’t get over how cute that little elephant is!  Well I’m off to catch up on some more card making, before I have to do the school pick up!

Have a lovely day!

Easter Card Week: Day 4 – Chripy Chirp!

Hi Everyone It’s Day 4 of Easter Card Week and today I have a fun little hatchling Easter card to share with you all that I created with the Chirpy Chirp Chirp stamp set by Lawn Fawn.

To create this card I started by stamping the grass from the stamp set onto my card base, then the sentiment directly below it.  I then stamped and paper pieced the little chick and egg from some patterned paper and glitter cardstock before sticking them onto my card using adhesive foam. I arranged the chick and the egg so that it would look like the chick had just hatched from the egg. Finally I embellished the card with some spring coloured sequins. It’s such a cute stamp set to work with.  The images are all so fun and sweet! Ok now the fun part!  Today’s giveaway!  One lucky reader who leaves a comment on this post will win this fun stash of crafty supplies:

Easter Card Week: Day 3 – Happy Bunnies

Hello!

Welcome back to another day of my Easter Card Week!

For today’s card I used the ultra adorable Eggstra Special Easter stamp set by Lawn Fawn!

I started off by die cutting a stitched square panel of card stock a little smaller than the card base. I then stamped my sentiment to the bottom half of the panel and stuck it to my card base using adhesive foam. Next I stamped and die cut the two cute bunnies from the stamp set and coloured them using Copic Sketch markers. Once they were done I then stuck them to my card using adhesive foam again and embellished the card with some spring coloured enamel dots.

I absolutely love this Easter set! Those bunnies are just way too adorable!!

Now today’s giveaway is an Instagram one!  So to be in the running for that prize head on over to my Instagram feed!

Easter Card Week: Day 1 – Bunny Shaker Card

Hello!

Happy April and welcome to my Easter Card Week!

With Easter just a couple of weeks away, this week I thought it would be fun to share an Easter card a day with you all!  There will also be a couple of giveaways so keep an eye out!  Scroll down for more details.

Today’s card is a fun shaker card I created using the cute little bunny boy from the Easter Friends stamp set by Pretty Pink Posh.

To create the shaker I die cut a photo frame from some white card stock using the Stitched Photo Frames die set, and stuck some clear acetate to the back of it. I then stamped the happy easter sentiment to the bottom of the die cut frame and stamped and die cut the little bunny boy out. Next I coloured him in using Copic Sketch markers, before sticking him into the die cut frame in a way to make it look like he was jumping out of the frame.

I then stuck some adhesive foam around the back of the frame and filled it with sequins from the 4mm Spring Sequins Mix then stuck it down onto my card base. Finally, I embellished the front of the card with some more of the spring sequin mix.  Here is a better look at those beautiful coloured sequins:

Now onto today’s giveaway!

Birthday Florals

Hi Everyone

How are you all? Today, I thought I’d quickly pop in to share a birthday card I created for my wonderful mum, who’s birthday was a few weeks ago.

I wanted to keep it soft and girly so I went with a stamped floral arrangement and soft colours using some beautiful stamps by Taylored Expressions.

I started off by stamping on my sentiment from the Free Spirit stamp set to the card base using a light grey ink by MFT Stamps. Next I stamped and die cut some florals from both the Fall Florals and Fresh Florals stamp sets, both by Taylored Expressions.  I then arranged them around the right side of my sentiment and stuck some of the flowers down using adhesive foam for dimension.  Finally I embellished the card with some clear droplets by Pretty Pink Posh.

Mum absolutely loved the card which made my day and I hope you are inspired by it?  I’ll be back again shortly to share some fun Easter cards over the next few days with you all!

Have a fantastic day!
