Mermaid Hello

Hello Friends

Today I thought I would pop in quickly and share a simple hello card I created recently using one of the mermaids from the ultra fun Little Mermaids stamp set by The Greeting Farm.

To create this card I started by stamping my sentiment onto my card base, the stamping the mermaid onto some X-Press It blending cardstock before colouring her in using Copic Sketch Markers. Once the colouring was dry I then coated her in glitter using a clear Wink of Stella glitter marker. Finally I adhered her to my card base, before stamping and colouring some fish and adding some rhinestone star embellishments.

I hope this card has inspired you today?  I’ll be back again shortly with some very exciting news to share with you all!

Have a wonderful day!



Koala Hugs

Hi Everyone!

How is the weekend going? It’s been pretty quiet this week here as my girls have caught a virus that’s been going around this winter and have pretty much been couch bound all week the poor things.

To top that off I have tonsillitis so it’s been all fun in this household this week! Thankfully, I’ve just started the antibiotics so hopefully will start to feel better again very soon!

So today, I thought I would pop in and share a cute card with you all that I created using the sweet Cuddly Koalas stamp set by MFT Stamps.  When I saw this stamp set, I knew I had to create something using it.  I mean, I live in Australia right, so how could I not possibly create a card featuring one of our most loved animals?!

Anyway, to create this card I started off by die cutting a stitched circle frame for the koala and my sentiment to sit in.  Next I stamped, die cut and paper pieced the cuddly little cuties together with some chevron patterned paper, also by MFT Stamps.  I then adhered the koala image to the circle and adhered the circle to my card base using adhesive foam.  Finally I embellished the card with some green sequins to tie in with the colour of the gum leaves that these little guys love to eat.

Well, that’s all from me for today, but I’ll be back with another card share soon.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy what’s left of your weekend!



Feline Unwell

Hello There!

I am back today with my final card as a guest designer for the month of June at Newton’s Nook Designs. I have had so much fun being a guest designer this month and playing with their super cute products, and I hope to be back again sometime in the future.

Today’s card is a very CAS get well card I created using the adorable Newton’s Sick Day stamp and die sets. I absolutely love this set with its sweet images of Newton and the fun pun sentiments! Be sure to keep an eye out on my blog for more cards using this set!

To create this card I began by stamping my sentiment onto my plain white card base, before stamping the image of Newton and the pill bottle onto some X-Press It blending cardstock.  I then coloured the images using some Copic Sketch markers before die cutting them out.  After they were dry I coloured the label on the pill bottle as well as Newton’s medical hat and his mane with some clear Wink of Stella glitter for some sparkle, before sticking them down onto my card base using adhesive foam.  Finally I embellished the card with some white and silver sequins.

I hope you enjoyed my final guest DT card today?  I just want to say that I am really grateful for being this month’s guest designer at Newton’s Nook Designs and I hope you all have a wonderful day!

Thank you for stopping by 🙂



Owl Couple Congrats

Hi There

Hope you are all enjoying the start of the weekend? We are currently in the middle of packing to go down south tomorrow, as sadly my grandfather passed away last Sunday and the funeral is this Monday. He was such an amazing man and the kindest person I have ever known and he will be missed so much.  It’s comforting to know though, that he is in a better place now and no longer in pain.

I’ve been trying to keep occupied as much as I can this past week otherwise I just end up crying, so I spent some time in the craft room creating to keep busy and came up with this shaker card using the sweet Happy Owls stamp set and coordinating dies by Pretty Pink Posh.

To create this card I began by stamping the owls and all their elements, then colouring them using Copic markers before die cutting them out. I then created the shaker element using the Stitched Photo Frames dies and filling it with Pink Blush, Lime and Mini Sparkling Clear Flower sequins.

I then stamped and die cut the congrats sentiment before assembling all the elements onto my card base and finally adding some more embellishment by adhering some sequins from the Sparkling Clear Mix on to the card base.

I hope this card inspires you to create more shaker cards!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thank you all so much for your support and kind comments during this difficult time.




Tee-rific Dad

Hello Everyone

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend? Today I’m back with another Newton’s Nook Designs card for you all, and this one uses the fun new Winston’s Tee Time stamp and die sets.

When I first saw this stamp set I knew it was a must have, especially to create cards for guys who love golf, as well as Father’s Day cards, which I’m getting a bit of head start on with today’s card!

I started this card by first arranging and stamping my sentiment onto a plain white card base, before stamping Winston onto some X-press It blending card, and again onto some patterned paper for his shirt. I then coloured Winston using my Copic Sketch Markers, before paper piecing his patterned paper shirt onto him.  Once he was dry I then covered his collar and the golf ball with some clear Wink of Stella glitter for a bit of shimmer, before die cutting them out and sticking them down onto my card base using some adhesive foam.  Finally I embellished the card with some matching coloured sequins.

That’s my card for today and I hope it inspires you to get a head start on creating some Father’s Day cards?!

Thank you all for stopping by today, and I’ll be back again next Monday with my final card for Newton’s Nook Designs.

Have a great day.



My Knight in Shining Armor

Hi There

I hope you are enjoy the weekend so far. Here we are having some nice sunny days so far this winter but it’s still quite cold during the nights! I just wish it would rain already as we need the water!

Sorry I’ve been a bit slack with posting lately. My grandfather is terminally ill at the moment so we have been travelling back and forth to the country to see him as much as we can before he passes. I don’t think he has much time left unfortunately, so it’s been quite an upsetting time here lately, so please bear with me as we get through this.

Anyway, last night I spent some time in the craft room to take my mind of things and put together a card for the current MFT Stamps sketch challenge. Here is the sketch:

For my card I played along with the super cute Knight in Shining Armor stamp set, and coloured in the sweet little knight with some copic markers (colours linked below).

To create this card I started by stamping and colouring the knight using copic markers, before die cutting him out.  I then die cut a wonky stitched circle and a fishtail banner frame as per the sketch and stuck them down onto my card base.  I then die cut out some glitter clouds and together with the knight I stuck them onto my card using some adhesive foam.  Next I stamped my sentiment onto some plain cardstock before using a fishtail banner die to cut it out.  I trimmed the banner a little as it was quite long, before also adhering that to my card base using adhesive foam.  Finally, I embellished the card with some sparkling clear sequins in place of a piece of cardstock as per the sketch.

I was definitely out of my comfort zone a bit with this card but I love how it turned out.  I hope this inspires you to play along with the challenge also.

Thank you so much for stopping by and all your support.  It means a lot during this difficult time.

Enjoy your weekend.
