I have loved making cards ever since I was a young girl. Little did I know, when I was making cards with paper, paint, crayons and even mum's lace and sequin supplies that I would keep enjoying this hobby later in life. The cardmaking/paper crafting women and men all over the world are absolutely inspirational and have created this great community which I'm lucky to be a part of.

Scootin’ By To Say Happy Birthday

Every time school holidays or term breaks come around, I see a whole lot of kids having fun riding on their scooters…the images in the Lawn Fawn Scootin’ By stamp set caught my eye and I wanted to create a scene which featured the little cuties on their scooters..

I started by creating a cloudy sky on all the front panels with Distress Inks and MFT Cloud Mini Edge stencil…

For the first card, I have used the Mama Elephant Scene Builder stamp and die set to create the houses in the background and added some Distress Inks to create the ground…I then added the coloured in and die cut fox and the mouse images on a scooter each and adhered them to the card front…the sentiment is from Lawn Fawn Happy Happy Happy stamp and die set…

The second card is a bit simple…I stamped the sentiment directly onto the front panel and added a hill border edge at the base to place the scooter riding mouse on..

For my third card, I have used the city background as well and added the little rabbit riding the scooter…this one has a helmet too..I die cut the sentiment using some pink glitter cardstock with Lawn Cuts Scripty Happy + Birthday dies..

I did not add any embellishments to these cards but did apply some Nuvo glaze on some elements for a bit of shine…

Thanks for your visit today…hope you will have a happy and crafty day ahead..


Slimline Cupcake Birthday Cards

Todaay I’m sharing two slimline birthday cards that I have made using Avery Elle Layered Cupcake stamp set…the printed acetate sheet, that the stamps cling to while in packaging, clearly identifies the various layers and makes it quite easy to figure our which layer to stamp next..

For both the cards, I have die cut the front panels from white and kraft cardstock using a die from the Mama Elephant Slim Window Dressing die set…I have used oxide inks to sponge the edges of these panels..

On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the cupcake and icing images…the MISTI tool came in very handy as I was able to stamp the same images multiple times in various colours…I have used Altenew crisp dye inks for stamping..

After die cutting the stamped images, I adhered them to the top panel and added the sentiments…the sentiment on the first card is from Avery Elle – Simple Sentiments set and for the second card I used the sentiment from Altenew Sentiment Strips stamp set…and finally to embellish the cards, I added some rhinestones..

I hope you enjoyed viewing my cards today…thanks so much for stopping by my blog…


Baby Cards

I just love these adorable images in the Baby Clothes Line stamp set from Your Next Stamp…the little onesies are just too cute…don’t you think?

On the front panel, I first used the MFT cloud edges stencil and Distress Inks to create a cloudy sky background and then die cut a base from green cardstock using MFT stitched scallop basic edge die and adhered it to the bottom of the panel…

I coloured in and die cut the stamped images and then added them to the card front…the congrats word used in the sentient is from Altenew script words die set..

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog…hope you will have a fun and crafty day ahead..


Strawberries Birthday Card

I have used Hero Arts Color Layering Strawberries stamp set for today’s card and absolutely loved the end result of this layering stamp…quite simple too since the strawberries are 2 layers and the leaves are 2 layers as well…

Once I had stamped the main image about six times and die cut them using the coordinating die, I adhered them randomly onto a front panel I cut to size from Hero Arts Paradise cardstock…I also inked the edges of this panel for a bit of depth in the background…

I stamped and white heat embossed the sentiment on black cardstock and added a pink mat layer before adhering it to the card front…to embellish my card, I added a whole lot of light pink gemstones..

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today…hope you will have a happy and blessed day ahead…stay safe and keep crafting..


Vintage Cars Birthday Card

I have made this quick birthday card using Honey Bee Stamps Car Show stamp set…I selected a few Altenew inks and stamped all the images in different colours randomly on the front panel of my card…

On a separate piece of cardstock, I stamped the large sentiment using the Waffle Flower Happy Birthday stamp set and coloured it in and die cut it using the coordinating die…I added this sentiment to the card front and applied some Nuvo Glaze on it for some dimension and shine…and to embellish the card I added a few gold confetti sequins…

Thank you so much for stopping by to take a look at my card today…hopefully I can post on my blog more often…I have been making lots of cards but finding the time to write up a post is getting a bit challenging at the moment..


Altenew Fairytale Florals Cards

I really liked this simple and large floral stamp set by Altenew called Fairytale Florals and decided to use the large image to create a handful of cards and tried out various ways to colour them in…

For my first card, I stamped the image using a light ink and then used the coordinating stencil and crisp dye inks to colour in the flowers…I stamped image again with black ink to make the outlines clean and visible…I die cut and adhered the images to a 3d embossed panel using the Floating Foliage embossing folder…I added the sentiment and dome embellishments and my first card was ready…

My second card also has a 3D embossed background…I used the Garden Harmony embossing folder with kraft cardstock for the front panel…I then stamped the image and heat embossed them using copper embossing powder…to colour in the images, I used Altenew Artist Markers and simply flicked the tip to colour in the centers of the images and left the rest of the space white/blank..I used the Sentiment Strips stamp set to stamp and heat emboss the sentiments for this card..

For my third card I have used Altenew Watercolor Brush Markers to colour in the black heat embossed image….I simply sponged in some pink ink to create the background panel and added the sentiments as well…I adhered the main image on one side of the card rather than in the center like all the other cards I have made with this set..

Now for my next card, I heat embossed the image with copper embossing powder again and used watercolor brush markers to colour in the image…I splattered a bit of paint on the image as well…then using the Rows Of Squares 3d embossing folder, I created the front panel of my card….I also sponged the edges of this panel before adhering it to the card base…

My last card also has a 3D embossed background…I used a light blue cardstock for the front panel and the Flowers And Leaves embossing folder…I stamped the main image with back ink and the various layers using shades of peach and green crisp inks…the sentiment is from Balloon Bunch stamp set which has been stamped and layered using the Apothecary Labels die set…

Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my blog…hope you liked the cards I shared with you today…stay safe and stay happy…


Dino Birthday Cards

I think that the best part about the Mama Elephant Little Dino Agenda stamp and die set has been that I was able to make 4 cards very quickly once the stamping, colouring and die cutting in was done…

I created the background panel using Distress Inks and cloud edge stencil and then adhered a bottom panel with the trees background…this panel was made using Mama Elephant Scene Builder set and coloured in with watercolours and markers…

I then stamped, heat embossed and die cut all the sentiment strips using the Mama Elephant Easy Sentiment stamp and die set and added all the little dinosaurs to the card fronts..

I added some rhinestones to embellish all the cards and used the Nuvo aqua shimmer pen to add some shine to the die cut images..

I really like how cute all these cards turned out to be…these little dinosaurs are adorable don’t you think??

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today…have a wonderful and blessed day ahead..!!


Daisy Wreath Birthday Cards

Layering stencil sets are my absolute favorites these days and there is a whole lot from various brands to choose from as well…I used the Pinkfresh Studio Daisy Wreath Stencils for these two cards and the best part is that they have a coordinating die as well…

Once the stenciled images were die cut, I die cut a couple more from white cardstock to layer the main image…I stamped the sentiment from Pinkfresh Studio A Day In The City Stamp set and adhered it to the wreath…

I used coloured cardstock and WRMK embossing folders Quilted and Geometric to create a bit of texture on the front panel of the cards before adhering the die cut wreath to the card front..

And finally to embellish the cards I added a few jewels from the Pinkfresh Studio Essentials Jewels Mix and my cards were ready..
