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.

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!

Merry Christmas Shaker Card

Hi Everyone!

Only 6 more sleeps left until Christmas! I hope everyone is all ready for the big day? I managed to get the last of my present shopping out of the way on Saturday so I’m all up to date now and can concentrate on being back in the craft room!

Today, I have a fun CAS shaker card to share with you that I created using some fun Lawn Fawn products together with a snowflake die by Simon Says Stamp.

I started off by die cutting the word ‘merry’ from a panel of cardstock the same size as my card base before sticking some clear acetate to the back of it to form a window. Next I stamped on the ‘Christmas’ part of my sentiment before adding foam to the back of the panel and putting in some blue and white sequins before sticking the card base to the panel. Finally I die cut two snowflakes from some glitter cardstock in similar colours to that of the sequins, and glued that down to my card base along with some white sequins for embellishment.

I hope this gives you some shaker inspiration for your holiday cards! Enjoy the rest of your day and I will be back soon with some more holiday cards.
