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.

Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer

Hi Everyone

I have another Christmas card to share with you all today, this one again using a sweet reindeer from the super cute North Pole Pals set by Avery Elle.

I created a little snowy scene for my paper pieced reindeer to rest on by cutting a panel of snowflaked patterned paper by Doodlebug, and a snowy little die cut hill.  I then stamped the sentiment onto the bottom of the snowy hill and stuck the panel down onto my card base using adhesive foam.  Once I had finished paper piecing the reindeer, I then stuck him down onto the scene using more adhesive foam.  For a little bit more dimension on the card, I covered the reindeer’s nose in glossy accents to highlight it a bit, before finally adding some clear droplets to my background to look like falling snowflakes.

I seriously cannot get enough of this stamp set and those cute images!  Be on the look out soon for more holiday cards featuring them.

Thanks for stopping by today and I hope you have a great night!

Santa Snowfall

Hello!

Wow, I’m so sorry it’s been a while since I last posted! We have been flat-out working on getting all our landscaping done, as well as completing a few other house tasks before Christmas arrives! I’m happy to say everything is now all done, and our home is now complete, so I will be back to posting more frequently and crafting more!

With Christmas just a few weeks away, today I thought I’d share a cute Santa themed card that I created using the fun Santa stamp and die from the North Pole Pals set by Avery Elle.

After stamping and die cutting out the Santa image, I then stamped him again onto some cute patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs Inc, so that I could then paper piece it onto my die cut image. To create the fun snowfall background on my card, I cut a panel of cardstock the same size as my card base and die cut it using the Vertical Snowfall die by MFT Stamps. I then stamped my sentiment to the bottom part of the cardstock panel using a sentiment from the Season’s Greetings stamp set by Gina K Designs, before sticking the panel to my card base using adhesive foam. After colouring certain elements of the Santa in, I then stuck him onto my card base again using adhesive foam. Finally, I glued some white sequins to the card to add a bit more sparkle and embellishment.

I hope this card gives you some fun holiday inspiration! I have more Christmas cards to share this week, so check back soon.

Happy crafting!

Flowers for Mum

Hi There

And happy Tuesday! Today I thought I would pop in and share a card with you all that I created as a kind of thank you card for my mum.

Using the layout of my Rose Congratulations card I posed here, I decided to keep the style pretty much the same but just changed up the sentiment.

floral-mum-card

Again I used the fun Modern Blooms set by MFT Stamps for this card, together with the Wonky Stitched Circle Stax.  For my sentiment though I used the Mum stamp by Skull & Cross Buns.  It’s really hard to find some really good Mum stamps (as opposed to Mom) here so when I stumbled upon this store it definitely made my day!  The font of it is gorgeous and it stamps beautifully.  Be sure to check out their stamps.  They are all handmade and gorgeous.

Anyway, after putting the card together, I finished it by embellishing it with some clear droplets and coloured sparklets for the flower centres.

I can’t wait to see mum’s reaction!

Thank you for stopping by and have a fabulous night!
