Thinking of Bumble Bees!

Hello There!

I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend so far? It has finally decided to cool down here and it is a nice and overcast, rainy day, so I’m enjoying it!

I know it’s been a while since I last posted but that is because I spent the last week in Bright, Victoria on a craft retreat with some amazing girls! We had so much fun, lots of laughs and of course, plenty of card making took place so I have lots to share with you all in the coming weeks!

I then got home and got hit with a shocking virus that’s been going around, so I’m finally starting to feel better and thought I’d pop in and share a fun card I created while at the retreat with you all.

I finally got to meet one of my best online crafting friends, Joy Taylor from Simple by Design and I have to say she is just as sweet in person as she is online! I had the best time with her and she was nice enough to let me play with the new Bee Friends stamp and die set by Pretty Pink Posh while we were at the retreat. It’s such a cute little set, I ended up playing with it quite a bit!

I started off by stamping my sentiment from the set directly onto my card base before stamping and die cutting two of the cute bees onto some extra cardstock so that I could paper piece them together using the Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots patterned paper pad by MFT Stamps.

Once the bees were complete I then placed them onto my card base so that I could then stamp the dotted lines behind them, before then sticking them down with some adhesive foam.

I then coloured their wings with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen to give the cute bees some shimmer.  Here is a close up to show you the glittery wings:

Finally, Then stamped on a heart from the stamp set, and finished the card off by embellishing it with some Lemon Meringue sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.

I will be sharing some more cards I created whilst away at the retreat, so be sure to stay tuned!

Have a fantastic weekend!

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.

Thank You Fairy Much!

Hi Everyone

Happy Hump Day! Today I’m popping in to share a cute Thank You card I created for a recent custom order.

A friend recently got married this past week and she asked me to create some thank you cards for her bridesmaids, flower girls, her mum and her new mother-in-law. Today’s card is the Thank You card that I created for her cute little flower girls.

Knowing young girls love fairies, I knew I had to use the sweet Pixie Dust stamp set by Avery Elle for this card.


I teamed them up with some die cut glitter and foil flowers as well as a vellum leaf to tie all the accents together. I then embellished the card with some pink rock candy by Queen & Co.

I can’t wait to find out what the flower girls thought of these fairy cards!

Have a wonderful day and enjoy the sunshine!

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #47


It’s Thursday again so that means it’s time for a new Taylored Expressions Share Joy Challenge!

This week we have a sketch/and or Tic Tac Toe challenge for you to play along with. You can choose to play with either of the challenge elements or both. It’s totally up to you!


This week I chose to play along with the Tic Tac Toe part of the challenge using the combination of flowers, blue and ink splatter to create a sweet Thank You card for a good friend of mine.


To create this card I started off by stamping my sentiment onto my card base before stamping the flowers from the Fresh Florals stamp set and the Friendship Blooms stamp set on to a separate piece of cardstock before die cutting them out. After I worked out where I wanted the flowers arranged I stuck them down to my card using adhesive foam. To add some ink splatters to my card I used a small stamp from the Stroke of Genius 2 stamp set and some silver ink. Finally I then embellished the card with some blue sequins from the Build a Scene sequin mix.

If you would like to play along with us this week, stop by the Share Joy Challenge blog for more DT inspiration and all the details.

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!

Taylored Expressions: Share Joy Challenge #44

Hello Friends

Hope your week has been going great so far. It has been freezing here this past week, so most of our time has been spent indoors with the heater on. I do love winter and am not looking forward to it ending!

Anyway, today marks the start of another Share Joy Challenge by Taylored Expressions! This week we have a sketch and/or CAS challenge for you all to play along with.


I went with CAS for my card as that is my main card making style, to create a sweet floral Thinking of You card. I really can’t seem to get enough of the gorgeous Fresh Florals stamp set!


To create my card I started off by stamping a series of gold brush strokes from the Stroke of Genius stamp set onto my card base, before stamping my sentiment onto it. Next I stamped the flowers and leaves from the Fresh Florals set in Lollipop and Jelly Donut inks before die cutting them out and arranging them onto my card.  I then added some gold sequins from the Wedding sequin mix for extra embellishment.

I hope this card inspires you to play along with us this weekend.

Thank you for stopping by and have a great day!
