Happily Ever After Owls

Hi All

It’s a busy day here for us today! My hubby as a work golf day he has to attend (I know, really hard day for him right!), and we also have a family friend’s wedding! I’ll be taking the girls to the church with me as Dave can’t attend that, but he’ll at least be back in time to attend the reception.

After making bridal shower cards the past week, I thought I had actually run out of ideas for wedding cards but I finally came up with this one to give to the happy couple tonight. The current Wednesday Simon Says Stamp Challenge is all about using kraft, so I decided to make my card with a kraft base.

Ever After Owl Couple Card

I paper pieced the cute Heart Owls stamp by Hero Arts by first stamping it onto my card base and then again onto some white and brown glitter cardstock by American Crafts. I then cut the owls out, adhered them to my card and embellished them with some googly eyes and adhesive embellishments.

Using a sentiment from the Ever After stamp set by Kaisercraft, I stamped the sentiment below the owl couple, leaving enough room for me to add some flower rhinestone trim between the two, which I stuck down using a hot glue gun.

I better go and get myself and the girls ready for the church, but I’ll have another card to share with you all soon.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Birthday Ice Creams

Hi Everyone

Sorry it’s been a while! I have been busy creating in my spare time in between looking after the girls so the old blog has been a bit neglected. Anyway I have heaps of cards to share with you all so it’ll be back to regular blog posts :)

Today’s card is a quick CAS birthday card featuring some die cut ice creams I created using the Ice Cream Cones die by Simon Says Stamp.

Happy Birthday Ice Creams Card

After stamping my sentiment only my kraft card base, I die cut the ice cream cones from some latte coloured card stock by Hero Arts. For the ice cream itself I die cut it from some blue and pink glitter cardstock as well as a gorgeous sheet of patterned paper from Kaisercraft’s Confetti 6.5 x 6.5 paper pad. I absolutely LOVE this paper pad! There are so many gorgeous patterns and colours that are perfect for all kinds of fun party projects.

Finally, after piecing the ice creams together and sticking them to my card using adhesive foam, I added some adhesive embellishments in matching colours for a little bit more bling.

I will be back again soon to share some more creations with you all.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!

Bridal Love Card


Today I’m sharing with you all the second bridal shower card I created last week which I mentioned in my previous post.

This card is a simple CAS style card where I cut and embellished the white cardstock front of the card to look like a wedding dress.

Love Bridal Dress Card

To cut the wedding dress shape I used a small and large Spellbinder’s circle die which I positioned on my card front and traced around one edge until I got the shape I wanted. Using a craft knife I then cut the dress shape before gluing a piece of black metallic cardstock behind it to replace the cardstock I cut away from the card front.

I then heat embossed my sentiment onto the black metallic cardstock and embellished the waist of the dress with some metallic flower trim and a small ribbon bow.

If you need a lot of wedding cards or thank you cards for a wedding, then this one would be great as it is so easy to mass produce. Now I just have to come up with one for the actual wedding next weekend!

Thank your for taking the time to stop by today.

Bridal Shower Card

Hi Everyone

I swear it feels like I have had heaps of weddings to attend this year and I have another one coming up in 2 weeks! When it rains it definitely pours! Lol! Yesterday I had the bride’s bridal shower to attend so I left the girls with my hubby for a couple of hours and got to enjoy some girly time with my sister-in-law and eat a lot of sugar filled goodies!

I created a couple of bridal shower cards for the bride (one for my mum to give to her, and one from me), so I’ll share one of them with you all today. We generally have what is known as “Kitchen Teas” here in Australia which is basically the same thing as a bridal shower but the gifts are all items for the bride’s kitchen.

Best Wishes Bridal Hearts Card

Instead of creating a kitchen tea card which usually involves cooking utensils or food etc, I made a card for her bridal shower focussing on the bride and groom in which I used hearts to symbolise the pair.

To create the bride and groom hearts, I just digitally cut some hearts from metallic cardstock and using my craft knife cut a short line down the middle of a black heart before folding the centre of the heart out. I then glued it to a white heart base and hand cut a little bow tie and added some enamel dots for buttons, to create a tuxedo. For the heart representing the bride I just dry embossed it with a flourish pattern and added some adhesive rhinestones for embellishment before gluing them to my card base using adhesive foam.

It was such a fun card to create and I hope she really likes it. I better get a move on and tackle some housework, but I’ll be back to share the second bridal shower card with you all shortly.

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.
