Scribble Engagement Card

Hello Friends

If you enjoyed the engagement card I shared over the weekend, today I am sharing the second engagement card that I created.

Again I used the inlaid die cutting technique and the same silver and white colour scheme, but this time I went for a square-shaped card with a silver scribble feature.

I used a Circle Scribble die by PTI for my inlaid die cut image, and die cut it twice. Once from my card base and again from some silver foil cardstock so that I could layer it inside my card base die cut.

Again I created the engagement ring using the cute ring die from Top Dog Dies awesome Wedding Die Set. I then stamped and heat embossed my sentiment onto a separate piece of matching metallic cardstock, which I trimmed down to size, added my ring to, and then stuck to my card front.

Finally I added some silver sequins for embellishment just to tie it all together. Here is a close up of the engagement ring and my heat embossed sentiment:

I hope you enjoyed my card today.

Have a Pawesome Day!

Hi Everyone

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

Today I’m sharing a card with you, that I created over the weekend for the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr group challenge. It feels like it has been a while since I last played along in their great challenges, I thought I would get some supplies out and have some fun.

The current challenge is all about using your favourite technique to create a project, and my most favourite technique of all is die cutting. Seriously dies with coordinating stamp sets have to be the best invention ever!

Pawesome Day Card

I kept everything CAS and made the ‘pawesome’ sentiment and inlaid die cut, before stamping the little kitty onto some patterned paper and die cutting that out. I then used a sentiment from the It’s Your Day stamp set by Hero Arts, which I cut apart, so that I could stamp the ‘Have a’ and the ‘day!’ sentiments above and below the inlaid pawesome sentiment.  Lastly, to tie the card all together, I added some silver and grey sequins.

Well it’s time for me to go and sneak in some more card making, but thank you for stopping by.

Enjoy your day.

Top Dog Dies – Wildflower Treat Box


I’m over on the Top Dog Dies blog today with a cute little gift box to share with you all.

I created this little box using the Thumb Notch Box die together with the Wildflower die and Pretty Petals #3 die set for decoration.

Wildflower Mint Treat Box

To create the treat box, I used a clear sheet of acetate to die cut the Thumb Notch Box from, before folding and assembling it.

Once assembled I then filled it with some mints I had and tied some twine around it. I then die cut the wildflower die twice, once from some green cardstock, and again from some metallic white cardstock so I could cut around the flowers and glue them to the tops of the flowers on the green die cut wildflower. Here is a better look at wildflower:

Next I die cut two more flowers from the Pretty Petals #3 die set to add a larger flower the decoration of the box. After layering the large flower together, I added some adhesive pearls to all of the flower centers and stuck everything to the treat box using a hot glue gun (I glued the wildflower down under the twine bow and the large flower embellishment to the top of the bow).

This Thumb Notch Box is so great for creating cute little party or wedding favors. I hope you enjoyed my treat box today.

Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Engagement

Hi There

I hope you are all having a wonderful week so far. Only one more day to get through and it will be the weekend again!

I’ve been busy this week chasing after some cheeky two and a half-year olds and trying to sneak in some creative ‘me’ time, so I’m sorry I haven’t been able to post anything until now. I have a few new projects to share, so the blog will definitely be getting a little love now :)

My mum asked me a few days ago to create a couple of engagement cards for her, so today’s card is one of those.

When I first saw the Confetti Circle die by Simon Says Stamp I knew it would be perfect for celebratory style cards, so I used it together with the engagement ring from the Wedding Die set by Top Dog Dies to create this engagement card.

Confetti Engagement Card

I started off by die cutting the confetti circle from some shimmery linen cardstock I found in my stash, and then again from some silver foil cardstock, so that I could inlay the silver confetti to the die cut on the linen cardstock. Looking at it, it seems like it would have taken me forever to stick all those silver cardstock circles into the die cut, but actually it wasn’t that bad at all! I think it only took me about 10 minutes total to get them all in the right place!

Once that was done, I then die cut the engagement ring and stuck it to the centre of the confetti circle using adhesive foam I placed behind the diamond. To add a little more bling, I added some adhesive rhinestones around the die cut for a bit more confetti. Lastly I heat embossed my sentiment to my card with silver metallic embossing powder.

Here is a close up of the confetti and the ring, also showing you the texture of the linen cardstock.

I loved using this confetti circle die, so keep a look out for some other cards I created with it, coming up soon on the blog.

It’s time for me to go and get dinner started for the family, but I’ll be back soon with more to share.

Have a great day.

Top Dog Dies – Kitty Thank You Card & Gift Tag

Hi Friends

I’m over on the Top Dog Dies blog today with a fun Thank You card and matching Gift Tag I created using the very cute Cool Cats die set.

I absolutely adore cats so just had to have this fun die set when I saw it. We have a fluffy pet kitty cat, Migaloo (nicknamed Miggy), who adds lots of fun and extra love to our household.

When we go away for weekends or a few days here and there and we can’t bring her along with us, I get my awesome sister and brother-in-law (who happen to live right next door), to pop in every day that we are away, just to check on her and feed her for us.

As a way of saying thanks for always being there to help us when we are away, I thought it would be nice to bake some macarons for them, and deliver them next-door, along with a handmade card and matching gift tag.  The super-easy fail proof recipe for these macarons can be found here.

Kitty Card & Gift Tag

Miggy is a white Ragdoll, so I used white glitter paper to die cut the Cool Cats from. To add an extra element of dimension to them, I also die cut them again from some pink cardstock, which I glued to the back of the glitter kitties, leaving a little of the pink cardstock peeking out from one side to look like a shadow/silhouette.

Kitty Gift Tag

For the gift tag, I trimmed some white linen cardstock into a tag shape and die cut the hearts from it. I then die cut the banner with the little mouse, stuck some pink cardstock to the back of it and stamped on my ‘To:’ before sticking it to my tag with adhesive foam.

I glued the cat to my tag also using adhesive foam and to finish it off, I added some googly eyes and a tiny pink rhinestone for a nose.

I created the matching card along the same lines, but stamped on the thank you sentiment using pink ink.

Kitty Thank You Card

As it’s a thank you card for feeding Miggy, I also die cut the food bowl and the little fish from some cardstock to add to the card. The fish has a little pendant top to it so all I did was cut that off and slid the fish through the die cut gap in the food bowl, before sticking it to my card base with an adhesive foam square.

To finish off the card I then glued on some pink and white sequins.

I hope you enjoyed this fun little set! If you have a dog instead of a cat, and would like to create something similar, then be sure to check out the Dog Days #1 and Dog Days #2 die sets.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend.
