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!

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!

Heart Day Breeze

Hi There

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend so far. I got some more craft time in this weekend to create another Valentine’s Day card, this time using some sweet Simon Says Stamp products.

Using the super cute Heart Breeze die, I chose to die cut and in-lay it into my card base using red and silver foil cardstock.

Once I had all the elements inlaid into my card base, I then stamped my heart sentiment from the Heartfelt Notes stamp set in silver ink, before die cutting it using the matching die and adding it to my card. To finish off the card I added some matching coloured sequins for extra embellishment.

I hope this card inspires you today. Enjoy what’s left of your weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Purr-fect Kitty

Hi Everyone

Things have been flat-out here lately, and super hot during this summer but I finally managed to get into the craft room and get started on some Valentine’s Day creations.

I used some Christmas money to buy some new goodies to play with from Newton’s Nook Designs including the Newton Loves Coffee set. I absolutely love cats so I just had to get some super cute Newton stamps and dies.  I’ll have some more kitty cards coming up over the next few weeks so keep a look out!

I went with a soft colour combo of whites, greys and pink for this card and paper pieced little Newton and the coffee cup. I then coloured his ears and nose with a marker before colouring the lid of the coffee cup with a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen. I then stamped my sentiment to my card base, stuck Newton down using some adhesive foam, before embellishing the card with sequins and enamel hearts.

I love how this card turned out. It’s a perfect Valentine’s for anyone who loves coffee and cats!

Have a great day!

Happy New Year!

Hello Everyone

And Happy New Year to you all! Hopefully you all had a wonderful Christmas break and New Year’s celebration. I know this post is about 4 days late but this time of the year is always hectic for us! The girls had their 4th birthday just 3 days before Christmas, then Christmas itself, together with New Years, things have been pretty crazy around here for us, so I haven’t had much time to catch up on computer work! And then yesterday, my new gorgeous baby nephew was born! So it’s been busy and exciting times here!

Anyway, I put together a fun shaker card to wish you all a wonderful and happy new year, so here it is…

To create this card I started off by printing out the ‘new year’ part of my sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock, before die cutting the ‘happy’ sentiment from some gold foil and sticking it above. Next I die cut and assembled the champagne shaker glass using the Raise Your Glass die set by Taylored Expressions. I then filled the glass with sequins from the Wedding mix (also by Taylored Expressions), before sticking down a couple of loose sequins for extra embellishment.

Well, that’s all from me for today, but I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the year so far.

Thank you for stopping by and have a wonderful night!
