You’re Fab-boo-lous!

Hello Again!

I thought I would quickly pop in again today to share a card I just put together for the current MFT Stamps Sketch Challenge. I think I’ll get it entered just in time! Anyway here is the sketch my card is based on:

I chose to create another Halloween card using the sketch and I started by first masking part of the top and bottoms of my card base, so that I could ink blend some purple colour to the background of my card as per the sketch.

I then die cut a wonky stitched rectangle and a wonky stitched circle for my card before adhering them down in place using adhesive foam.

Next I stamped, die cut and coloured my images using copic markers before also adhering them to my card base using some more adhesive foam.

For my sentiment I stamped and heat embossed it in white on some orange cardstock before die cutting that out and adhering to my card. Finally, I embellished the card with some sparkling clear sequins.

I hope you like it?! ¬†Thanks for stopping by ūüôā



Ghostly Greetings

Hello Again

Happy hump day! I have a fun spooky card to share with you all today that I again created for the 2017 Card Design Superstar contest by MFT Stamps. This card is for the Colouring Virtuoso category.

Keeping the card clean and simple I decided to create a little Halloween scene with some of those adorable ghosts from the Fab-BOO-lous Friends stamp set.

I first started by stamping, colouring and die cutting out the images I wanted to use on my card, before die cutting a circle from some plain cardstock to create a mask for my ink blended background. Once I had ink blended my background I then arranged the Halloween images where I wanted them to go onto my card and stuck them down using adhesive foam. Next I stamped my sentiment onto some plain white cardstock, before trimming it down to size and also sticking that down onto my card base with adhesive foam. Finally I stamped some small stars to the ink blended circle and finished the card off with some clear sparkling sequins.

By no means am I a colouring virtuoso but I thought I would have a go at entering the contest anyway. I’m just a newbie to copic colouring, but like how this card turned out.

Thank you for popping by and enjoy the rest of your day!



Stitched Floral Hello

Hi Everyone!

How fast did the weekend go by! Today I have a CAS floral card to share with you all that I am going to enter into the 2017 Card Design Superstar contest by MFT Stamps, in the clean and simple category.

To create this card I first started by die cutting the stitched strip diagonally across the front of my card base before stamping and die cutting some soft coloured flowers from the Modern Blooms stamp set. Once I had arranged them how I wanted the flowers and leaves to go, I then stuck them down onto my card using adhesive foam.  Next I die cut the hello from some glitter cardstock and glued that down into position on my card before embellishing the blue flowers with some off white enamel dots.  Finally I added some extra embellishments to the card using some clear droplets.

I love how this turned out and I love the fun blue and grey colour combination.

Thanks for stopping by today.



Sending Cactus Hugs


Happy Wednesday! I have another fun Uniquely Creative Stamp & Colour Sweet Succulents card kit card to share with you all today! This one also using the gorgeous Foliage Border die that comes in the kit.

To create my card I first started by stamping and colouring that sweet little cactus girl image in using Copic Sketch markers, before cutting her out using my Silhouette Cameo machine.  I then added some white dots to the cactus using a white gel pen. I then stamped the sentiment onto some plain white cardstock and trimmed that down to size.  Using the Foliage Border die I die cut it from some vellum included in the card kit and trimmed it down before sticking it to my card base.  Next I adhered my image and sentiment, both using adhesive foam, before embellishing the card with some enamel dots from the kit.

I love how this simple card turned out and how the vellum foliage cut adds a subtle focal point to the card.

I hope you are all enjoying this new card kit? I’d love to see all your creations in the Uniquely Creative Subscriber Community over on Facebook!

Enjoy your day!



Free Hugs!

Hi Everyone

How was your weekend? I spent the weekend in the garden tidying everything up and getting rid of all the weeds before the rain arrived, so it was a really productive weekend here around the house!

Speaking of gardening, I thought I’d pop in today and share a garden related card with you all. This one was created using the Sweet Succulents Stamp & Colour kit by Uniquely Creative.

To create the card I started by first stamping and colouring the cute flower-pot and little succulent girl images in before using my Silhouette Cameo machine to cut the images out. I then stamped my sentiment onto some spare cardstock before assembling them all onto my card base using adhesive foam. Finally I embellished the card with some of the gorgeous coloured enamel dots included in the kit.

Aren’t those succulent kids so fun and cute! ¬†Be sure to stop by the Uniquely Creative website for more info on these great card kits and for some more inspiration!

Have a wonderful day!



Fairy Garden Wishes

Hi There

Hope you are all enjoying your Tuesday so far? This morning I had to run around and do a few errands after getting the girls to kindy, but now I’m in the craft room and hoping to get creating very soon, but before I do that I wanted to share a card with you all that I created over the weekend for the current sketch challenge by MFT Stamps.

Here is this week’s sketch:

For my card I chose to make a sweet birthday card perfect for any little girl, using the adorable Fairy Happy stamp and die sets.

To created the card I started by creating a rectangular mask from some scrap cardstock before positioning that onto my card base and then stamping some flowers, butterflies and hearts from the stamp set, to create a rectangular background in line with the sketch.  I then stamped my sentiment just below the stamped flowers etc, and then stamped and coloured my images before die cutting them all out.  I then adhered the die cut images to my card using adhesive foam before finally adding some sparkling flower sequins for embellishment.

I also covered the fairy’s wings and the butterflies with clear Wink of Stella glitter so hopefully you can make that out a bit better in the photo below.

I had so much fun creating this sweet card and I hope it inspires you today.

Thanks for stopping by!



Grow a Happy Life

Hello and happy Wednesday!

Today I have another card to share with you that I created using the Sweet Succulents Stamp & Colour card kit by Uniquely Creative.

I teamed up the cute little succulent kiddos from the stamp set included in the card kit, with the fun cactus die that can be purchased separately.  How awesome is the detailing in that cactus die!

To create the card I started off by die cutting the cactus from both green and craft cardstock that is included in the kit, before cutting the pot off the kraft die cut cactus and gluing it down onto my green die card cactus. I then adhered the cactus to my card base, before stamping and colouring two of the succulent kids from the stamp set and cutting them out with my Silhouette Cameo and Pixscan mat. Next I stamped and trimmed my sentiment from some plain cardstock and adhered all the elements to my card base, making the kids look like they were standing and sitting on the sentiment strip. Finally I embellished the card with the enamel dots included in the card kit.

How fun are the sentiments in the stamp kit! ¬†Be sure to stop by the Uniquely Creative website for all the details on this month’s fun kit!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by.
