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!

Gold Floral Thanks

Hi Everyone

How have you all been? Sorry I’ve been MIA lately, my girls started Kindy last week so I have been getting all organised for that and getting into a new routine! I will now have more time to create and post now that they’ll be at school a few days a week so the blog will finally be back to regular postings!

Yesterday, I created a floral thanks card using some beautiful MFT Stamps products for their weekly sketch challenge, but unfortunately ran out of time to get this post up before the deadline, but I’ll share the card with you all anyway. You can see the sketch here.

Using the Modern Blooms set I stamp layered some flowers in orange and peach colours before sticking them to my card base using adhesive foam. I then die cut the Thanks sentiment from some gold foil before sticking it to the top of the flowers and embellishing the card with some clear droplets by Pretty Pink Posh.

This was a super quick and easy CAS card to create and I love the soft colours and how it turned out.

Thanks so much for taking the time to drop by today.

Unfortunately this will be the last Share Joy Challenge as the challenge will now be monthly through the Taylored Expressions Newsletter. Be sure to keep a look out for it if you are a subscriber otherwise, subscribe now!

For my card I chose to use the sketch and create a fun Halloween card using the super cute Gone Batty stamp and die set.

I started off by cutting a strip of black patterned paper from the Playful Patterns – Haunted Paper Pack, and sticking it down onto my card base. Next I stamped and paper pieced my bats together using paper from the same paper pack. I then arranged them onto my card using adhesive foam. Finally I stamped on my sentiment and added some sequins from the Build A Scene: Halloween mix for embellishment.

I hope you all get a chance to play along with this challenge one last time. But be sure to check out the Taylored Expressions website for future challenges.

Have a great night and thank you for stopping by.

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #54

Hi There

I’m back again tonight with this week’s Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge.

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

As you can see by my card below, I played along with the gorgeous inspiration photo for this week’s challenge. I absolutely love the colours of fall so knew I had to play along with the photo this week and create a fall themed thank you card using the gorgeous Fresh Florals stamp set.

To create my card I began by stamping my sentiment onto my card base before stamping and die cutting the flowers from the Fresh Florals set. The inks I used for them were Cherry Pop, Pumpkin and Candy Corn and they work together so beautifully. Next I arranged them around my sentiment using adhesive foam before finally finishing off the card with some sequins from the Wedding sequin mix.

Anyway, that’s all from me for today but be sure to stop by the challenge blog and check out some more gorgeous inspiration from the DT.

Have a wonderful night and happy crafting!

Rose Congratulations

Hi Everyone!

I hope you are all having a great week so far? It feels like a while since I’ve popped in to share a post just for fun, but tonight I managed to find free time to create an entry for the MFT Stamps 2016 Card Design Superstar contest!

I chose to play with some of my favourite MFT products to create a CAS congratulations card perfect for an Engagement or Wedding, using the fun Modern Blooms stamp set.

To create my card I started off by die cutting a circle from the Wonky Stitched Circle Stax die set, and stamping my sentiment onto from the LJD Beautiful Baby stamp set.  Next I stamp my leaves and flowers onto a spare piece of white cardstock before die cutting the images out.  I then arranged them onto my wonky circle die cut and stuck them down with adhesive and foam.  Finally I stuck the wonky circle down onto my card base using adhesive foam, and embellished it with some clear droplets.

I absolutely love how this turned out and I love layering those gorgeous flowers!  It’s easy to tell why this is one of my favourite stamp sets!

Anyway, wish me luck and thank you so much for stopping by!

Have a wonderful night.
