Pastel Pegasus

Hi Everyone

Today I’m sharing with you all another card I created whilst away at the retreat two weeks ago.

I recently purchased the super fun Pegasus Duo stamp and die set by Avery Elle, that I just had to bring it with me and create something using those gorgeous Pegasus’!

I kept the card CAS and after stamping and die cutting out the Pegasus, I coloured its mane and tail in using three different light coloured Copic markers, to give it a pastel rainbow effect. I love how the colours worked together to create a fun whimsical effect to the Pegasus. I then added some shimmer to the wings and horn using a clear Wink of Stella maker, which you can see in the picture below.

I then added some die cut glitter clouds to my card, together with some rhinestone stars to finish off the magical feel of this card.

I absolutely love how this card turned out and I can’t wait to ink up that cute Pegasus again!  Keep an eye out for it soon!

Have a wonderful night.

Embossed Birthday Balloons

Hello Everyone!

I hope you are all having a great week so far? I’m currently in Bright in Victoria on the other side of Australia at a card making retreat with some very nice and super talented card makers! We are having so much fun and creating lots of great cards which I will be sharing with you all soon!

I thought I would quickly pop in and share with you all a birthday card I created for one of my best friends, my cousin Debbie, who had her 40th birthday last week. I wanted to create something sweet and simple for her but also using celebratory colours like silver and gold so I decided on some heat embossed balloons.

I started off by stamping and heat embossing the balloons from the It’s Your Birthday stamp set by Clearly Besotted with gold and silver embossing powder, before die cutting them out and sticking them onto my card base. I then stamped on my sentiment and finished off the card by embellishing it with some silver and gold glitter enamel dots.

I would love to know what you think?

Anyway, I better get back to some more card making, but will be back soon to share those creations with you all.

Have a great night!

Magical Princess

Hello There

Happy Wednesday. Today I have a fun birthday card to share with you all that I created with some new MFT Stamps products.

The new Once Upon a Time set is soo adorable and perfect for creating cards for kids. I know my girls both love princesses so I created this princess birthday card.

To create this card I started off by stamping and paper piecing both the castle and one of the princesses from the set. I then stuck them down to a panel of white cardstock which I had trimmed smaller than my card base. I then adhered the panel to my card base using adhesive foam, before die cutting out a fish tail, stamping my sentiment onto it and adhering it down to the front of my card. Finally I then embellished the card using matching coloured sequins from Pretty Pink Posh.

I hope this card has inspired you today. Thank you for stopping by!

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #50

Hi Friends!

Welcome to a new Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge! Can you believe we are up to 50 challenges already! The time certainly does fly when you are having so much fun!

This week we have a fun sketch and/or inspiration photo for you all to play along with.


For my card I chose to use the sketch and create a glittery birthday card using the fun Hippo Birdy stamp and die sets. I swear lately all I’ve been creating is birthday cards! It seems all of my friends tend to have their birthdays in the later half of the year!


Anyway, I pretty much stayed true to the sketch for this card but I substituted the banner for my sentiment. I started by creating the card layers on my card base using sugar cube cardstock and some white glitter cardstock. Next I stamped, die cut and paper pieced the hippo and birdy using gold and silver glitter and foil cardstock. I then stamped my sentiment onto my card before sticking the hippo and birdy down using some adhesive foam. Finally I embellished the card with some sequins from the Wedding sequin mix.

I love how this one turned out. Who can resist some glitter?!

For all the details on how to play along with us this week, and to check out some more amazing DT inspiration, stop by the challenge blog here. I hope you get a chance to play along!

Have a wonderful night!
