Top Dog Dies – Weddings

Hello Friends

This is my very first post as a Top Dog Dies DT member! I’m so excited to be apart of this team and I have some super fun CAS wedding cards to share with you all today.

I recently got playing with the new Wedding Die Set and found it hard to stop! The set is so versatile and I absolutely love the bride and groom dies.

For my first card I added a bit of lace to down the left hand side before stamping on my sentiment and adding the die cut bride and groom embellishments, for a more traditional styled wedding card.

Ever After Bride & Groom Card

To tie it all together I added a line of rhinestones down the card and a couple more on the bride’s dress.

My next card was super simple to create and I let the bride and groom die cuts act as both the embellishment and the sentiment.

Mr & Mrs Card

I used some cream and gold patterned paper as my card base and added the die cuts to a metallic cream panel before die cutting an a gold ampersand which I stuck in the middle of the groom and bride die cuts to make the card look like it is saying “Mr & Mrs”.

It’s such a fun idea to use the dies as a sentiment. You could even swap them over and make the card look like you are trying to say “Bride & Groom”.

For this next card I chose to create the design super clean and simple to make the main focus the bride and groom die cuts.

Mister & Missus Silhouette Card

I did this by using a plain kraft card for my base and adding the same coloured cardstock to create a smaller card panel, which I then stamped my sentiment onto.


The last card I created is one that can be used for either a wedding or an engagement.

Congratulations Rings Card

Using the rings from the Wedding Die Set, I die cut them from some gold foil cardstock and the diamond from some silver glitter cardstock. I then used a small piece of ribbon to tie the rings together (and to also give me another place in which to hide some adhesive foam behind).

I then added the rings to a metallic white panel of cardstock, which I bordered with gold foil, and then mounted it to a confetti card base, before stamping on my sentiment.

If, like me, you are always in need of wedding or engagement cards, then you really need to get your hands on this set!

Thank you for taking the time to visit today! I hope you’ve enjoyed my creations!

Embossed Happiness

Hi Everyone

It’s a nice rainy winter’s day here, so being indoors today, I thought I would play along with the Simon Says Stamp Flickr group challenge. The current challenge is for cards featuring embossing, and one of my favourite card making techniques is heat embossing.

I created a CAS wedding card where everything but the secondary sentiment is heat embossed.

Wishing You Both Happiness Card

I used the Sending and Wishing stamp set and stamped my sentiment first, then added the hearts. I heat embossed each element one at a time to stop the different powders from coming into contact with each other on the card. I wanted a sweet and soft colour scheme so I used a neutral colour as well as two shades of pink for the embossing powders.

Here is a close up of the embossing.

I stamped the secondary part of the sentiment to my card using black ink and added a couple of adhesive pearl hearts for some extra dimension.

Time for me to go and sneak in some more card making, but I’ll be back soon with some more cards to share.

Thanks for visiting today.

Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop!



I have decided to participate in the Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop today. And let me tell you, I absolutely LOVE my coffee! I cannot function in the mornings without it, especially with the girls getting me up a 5.45am most mornings now!

Playing along with this awesome blog hop is kind of my tribute to coffee. They also have heaps of wonderful sponsors offering up amazing prizes, making the hop even more exciting to play along with. Be sure to stop by the Coffee Lovers blog and check out all the details.

Here is the card I created for the hop.

Stacked Coffee Cups Card

I created the stacked coffee cups by electronically cutting this image from some fun and bright coloured patterned papers, to give the card a happy summery look. I stamped a sentiment from the Clearly Sentimental About Coffee stamp set by MFT Stamps on to my card base, before assembling the stacked cups and sticking them to my card base with adhesive foam. I then embellished the card with some matching coloured sequins.

Time for me to go and grab an afternoon coffee now, but I hope you all check out the hop and get a chance to play along.

Thanks for visiting and happy hopping.

Wishing You Both the Best!

Hi Everyone

I’m popping in today to share a wedding card I created using some of my favourite Simon Says Stamps dies and stamp sets.

I absolutely love the Ring Frame die, but haven’t gotten around to using it much, so I decided to pull it out this weekend and have a play with it. I teamed it up with the Sending and Wishing stamp set as well as some absolutely beautiful patterned papers from My Mind’s Eye’s Fancy That collection.

I chose to make the ring frame and inlaid die cut to give the card a more cleaner finish, and then added some height/dimension to it by raising my sentiment with some adhesive foam.

Wishing You Both Bubbles Card

To create the inlaid die cut, I positioned my die where I wanted it on my card front then ran it through my Cuttlebug machine. I then cut a panel of white cardstock the same size as my card front and glued it to the inside front of the card so I could then stick all the circle cut outs down on top of the card. I stamped my sentiment onto another piece of cardstock, and heat embossed the ‘wishing’ part of it with some metallic gold embossing powder.

Once I glued the sentient panel to my card using adhesive foam, I added some glitter enamel dot embellishments to the card, as well as a small rhinestone heart.

I love how this turned out and I can’t wait to create some more using this fun die, and the inlaid die cutting technique.

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your weekend.
