Birthday Bunny Hugs

Hello Everyone

Happy Saturday! It’s raining non stop here in Perth today, so I thought I would jump on the computer real quick and share a super fast CAS birthday card with you all.

Nothing beats sitting in the craft room on a rainy day, so I put together this quick birthday card while the hubby is looking after the girls! The sentiment is by Simon Says Stamp and the cute little bunny is from the Petite Plushies stamp set by Clearly Besotted Stamps.

To create this card real quick all I did was start by stamping my sentiment onto my card base, before stamping and paper piecing together the adorable little bunny.  I then coated the bunny in glossy accents to give him some shine, before sticking on some sparkling clear sequins by Pretty Pink Posh.

A super quick card to put together last minute, if you need something for a child’s birthday!

Thanks for stopping by today and have a great weekend!



Unicorns & Rainbows

Hi There

How is everyone’s week going so far?

Today I’m popping in to share a card with you all that I created for the current MFT Stamps sketch challenge. Here is the sketch:

I decided to play with the super fun and cute Magical Unicorns stamp and die sets that I received as a gift from a very dear friend of mine.

I started off by cutting a smaller piece of cardstock to stick down to my card base leaving a bit on the left hand side as per the sketch. I thought about putting a strip of pattered paper here but decided to leave it plain and CAS. I then stamped my sentiment onto some left over cardstock and then stamped, die cut and coloured all my images in using Copic Sketch markers. Once I had finished the colouring I then assembled all my images onto my card base and stuck them down using adhesive and adhesive foam. Finally I stuck on some clear sequins. I arranged the images and embellishments in an oval like shape so that I didn’t have to die cut one. That way the images and embellishments would be my main focal point.

I coloured in lots more of these cute unicorns, so stay tuned for some more cards featuring them very soon!

Have a wonderful day!



Happy Mother’s Day!

Hello and Happy Mother’s Day!

I hope you are all having a wonderful time with your families on this special day and that all the mums out there are being spoilt!

Today we are going out for breakfast with all my family and my parents, so I made this special card for mum, using the gorgeous Bold Blooms stamp and co-ordinating die set by MFT Stamps. The sentiment is a stamp I purchased from a UK shop called Skull & Crossbuns, as here in Australia and also in the UK we spell mum with a ‘u’!

To create this card I started by stamping the flowers down the left hand side of my card base before stamping my sentiment next to them.  I then stamped some more bold blooms on some separate cardstock which I then die cut out so that I could add them to my card using adhesive foam for a bit of pop!  Finally I embellished the card with some clear sequins.

Thank you all for stopping by today and again, Happy Mother’s Day to all the amazing mums out there!



Little Elephant Birthday Card

Hi There

Today I’m popping in quickly to share a birthday card I created for the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge. It’s an anything goes challenge so I thought I would create another card using the cute elephant from the Birthday Celebration stamp set.

I started off this card by positioning the elephant and sentiment on my card base before stamping them on. Next I stamped the elephant again onto some patterned paper so that I could paper piece him onto the stamped image on my card. Finally I stamped some green stars around the elephant and embellished the top of his party hat with a glittery rhinestone.

I tend to usually add height to my cards using adhesive foam, but for this one I decided to keep it all a one layer card, which is perfect for mass producing and sending in the mail!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by today.



Two-Two Trouble!

Hello Everyone

With the Clearly Besotted Stamps store up and running again along with an awesome new release, I thought I would create two cute cards for my girls who love ballerinas!

Using the super adorable Trouble in a Tutu stamp set I created these two cards in my girls’ favourite colours.

To create these two cards I started off my stamping the cloud outlines onto my cards bases using silver ink, and the sentiment just below using black ink.  Next I stamped two of the sweet ballerinas onto plain white cards stock, as well as patterned paper, before paper piecing them together.  I then stuck the ballerinas down on to the card bases using adhesive foam, before adding on some matching coloured sequin and rhinestone star embellishments.

Here is a look at the pink ballerinas:

My girls will definitely love these cards! How adorable are those little hippos! I’m so glad Clearly Besotted is back. Their designs are always super cute and fun to work with!

Thank you for stopping by today!



I Need Coffee Right Meow!!

Hi There

Happy Tuesday everyone! Today I thought I’d play along with the current challenge over at Simon Says Stamp which is an anything goes challenge featuring Newton’s Nook Design products.

I love Newton’s Nook because of the super cute kitty images, so I just had to play along and create a fun card perfect for a coffee and cat lover! How fun is that sentiment?!

For this card I started by stamping my images and colouring them in using some Copic Sketch Markers. I then stamped my sentiment onto my card base and stuck the images down using adhesive foam. Finally I added some sequin embellishments to my card and coloured the kitty’s white fur in using a clear Wink of Stella glitter pen.

I’m only new to Copic colouring so I still need some more practice but I do like how this card turned out.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!



Elephant Wishes


How are you all going? I hope you all had a wonderful Easter break. We spent some time down south with my family so it was a nice and relaxing time with lots of food and definitely lots of chocolate!

The girls are back at school today so I thought I’d create a fun birthday card and share it all with you today.  I created this card using the super cute elephant and sentiment from the Birthday Celebration set by Simon Says Stamp.

To create this card I started by cutting a smaller panel of white cardstock and diagonally cutting the top off to place onto my card base using adhesive foam. I then stamped my sentiment just under the diagonal cut before stamping and paper piecing that gorgeous little elephant together. Next I stuck the little elephant onto my card using some more adhesive foam, before embellishing the card with some fun coloured sequins.  I also embellished the top of the elephant’s hat with a pink flower rhinestone.

Honestly I can’t get over how cute that little elephant is!  Well I’m off to catch up on some more card making, before I have to do the school pick up!

Have a lovely day!
