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.

Easter Cards

Easter is just around the corner, and I have these four Easter cards to share with you…I first sketched a rough card layout template and then created the cards based on that template…I usually go with the flow while making cards but when I’m stuck for ideas, I try making a rough template and see if I can come up with ideas..

The focal element and sentiments on all the cards have been stamped using the Oh Bunny stamp set by Simon Says Stamp…In the first two card I have used coloured cardstock for the front panel and die cut an oval pattern using Simon Says Stamp Shimmer Oval Wafer Die..

The next two cards also use coloured cardstock for the front panel but for one card I have used the Altenew Dotted Lines Debossing Cover Die and for the other one I have die cut a circle using the Altenew Window Sphere Die….

Thank you for stopping by to take a look at my cards…hope you will have a happy and crafty day ahead…

Hugs And Good Luck Cards

I enjoyed watercolouring all the stamped and die cut elements for both these cards and loved the end results too…I have used the Luck And Hugs stamp set by Simon Says Stamp and gold heat embossed the large sentiments and the floral images….then using Altenew watercolour bursh pens, I coloured them all and set aside to dry..

For the background panels, I have used Simon Says Stamp Cosmos Bloom Background and You Matter Background stamps and then adhered them to the card base…

I die cut the coloured in sentiments and images adhered them on the card front…I also added small secondary sentiments heat embossed in gold as well….I have used rhinestone jewels to embellish my cards and applied Nuvo aqua shimmer pen on the images for a bit of shine..

Thank you so much for viewing my cards today…have a happy and creative day ahead..

Froggy Birthday Cards

The various frog images in the Hero Arts Happy Day stamp set were so much fun that I ended up making 4 birthday cards using this set…

These first two cards are quite similar and I have used the same layout for both of them…I have die cut the Hero Arts Leaves And Vines Fancy Die from Neenah solar yellow cardstock and adhered it to one of the card base.. for the other card I have used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Woodgrain Backdrop die with teal front panel and also applied some blueprint sketch Distress Ink on the edges….after stamping, colouring in and die cutting the images, I adhered them to both the card fronts and added the sentiment label to them both..

The Anniversary card I made is quite simple too…I stamped the front panel using an old Hero Arts background red rubber stamp with carved pumpkin Oxide ink and then added the gold embossed sentiment (Avery Elle – Loads Of Happy) as well as the two frog images and a few hearts…

The last card I made was a bit of fun…I first used the layering stamp and die set Mountains By The Lake by Hero Arts to create a peaceful scene and even added a die cut sun at the top corner…I placed the yoga frog image in the center of the card….I then stamped the sentiment and added a navy blue die cut rectangle frame to neaten my card..

Thanks heaps for stopping by my blog…hope you will have a lovely, happy and crafty day ahead..

Birthday Gnomes

Today I’m sharing a quick but cute card I made using Mama Elephant stamps and dies…I bought the Little Gnomes Agenda stamp and die set to make Chirstmas cards last year but realised there were a few of the gnome images I could use for other occasion cards as well…

I applied some tumbles glass Distress ink on the edges of the front panel and adhered it to the card base…I then die cut the Mama Elephant Big Happy Birthday sentiment once from holographic cardstock and twice from white cardstock and glued them together before adding to the card front..

I stamped, die cut and coloured in three of the gnome images and adhered them to the card as well..I also applied some Nuvo Glaze on these for a bit of shine…I then stamped another sentiment from the Mama Elephant Easy Sentiment stamp set and adhered it just below the large die cut sentiment..

The card looked shiny enough so I did not add any more embellishments to it…I hope you liked the card..thank you so much for stopping by my blog today..

Pawsome Valentine’s Day Cards

I used various Simon Says Stamp heart stencils, the Heart Garland background stamp and Pawsome Love stamp set to create a few Valentine’s Day cards that I’m sharing today..

First, I stamped and coloured in all the adorable cat and dog images from Simon Says Stamp Pawsome Love stamp set and die cut them using the coordinating dies..

Next, I created a few backgrounds on the front panels for my cards…using a few shades of pink Distress Oxide inks, I stamped the Heart Garland stamp set..I also used Distress inks and heart stencils to create the other backgrounds…once all the panels were adhered to the card bases, I added all the die cut images…

I stamped various sentiments on white cardstock and layered them on red cardstock before adhering them to the card fronts..I have used sentiments from various Simon Says Stamp sets – Pawsome Love, I Still Do, Lila’s Heart as well as a sentiment from mama Elephant Up With Love stamp set…

I added a few clear confetti sequins to embellish my cards and applied a bit of Nuvo glaze on the heart balloons for a bit of shine…

I hope you liked the Valentine’s Day cards I have shared this year…thank you for visiting my blog…happy papercrafting..!!

Layered Heart Valentine’s Day Card

I have made today’s card using the Birch Press Kaleidoscope Heart Layering Die Set…it was quite easy to die cut three different layers and simply glue them together to get a beautiful heart to use as the main focus of my card..I used red and pink cardstock for the two bottom layers and white glitter cardstock to die cut the top layer…

I then used the WRMK 3d embossing folder and a kraft cardstock to create the front panel on my card…I also used festive berries Distress Oxide ink to sponge in some colour on the sides of the panel…

I stamped the sentiment on a red label using embossing ink and then heat embossed it using some white embossing powder..I layered it with some pink cardstock and adhered it to the heart die cut…

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today….Have a happy and blessed day ahead..

Somebody Loves You

When I saw the adorable images and sweet stamps from the Mama Elephant Up With Love Stamp Set, I knew I had to make cards where these images stood out..

I stamped and coloured in the images using alcohol markers and then die cut them using the coordinating dies…I applied some Nuvo glaze on the heart balloons and set these die cut images aside to dry..

I started with the backgrounds next…using Distress Inks and MFT mini cloud stencil and the MFT grassy edges I created the backgrounds and then used the Lawn Fawn just stitching double rectangles dies to create a kind of a frame around the scene…

I stamped and heat embossed all the sentiments on white cardstock and when I wanted to create the label and the back layer, I simply used the Mama Elephant Quick Stripes dies and die cut multiple sentiments in one go…

Hope you liked the cards I shared today…thank you for visiting my blog…happy papercrafting..!!

I stamped the cat and mouse stamps using black ink and then added a die cut MFT Love Speech Bubble from black and red cardstock and added it to the card front…I added some glitter on the heart and applied some Nuvo glaze on the red heart for a bit of a shine..

I stamped the sentiment using red ink on a white label and layered it with some red cardstock and adhered to the card front…I added some clear confetti sequins to embellish my cards..

Avery Elle Birthday Cards

These cute birthday cards were so much fun to make and didn’t take much time at all…I have used the Avery Ella Sending Hugs stamp and die set…the coordinating die set has an extra die for the envelope with which you can die cut the front section so there is some space to easily tuck in the various animals…

I stamped, coloured in and die cut all the images and coloured the images using alcohol markers and did a bit of shading on the envelopes using Distress Inks and a blending brush..

Using the MFT Micro Cloud Edges and Tumbled Glass Distress Ink, I created the backgrounds for all my cards and then adhered the die cut envelopes on the card front…

I stamped the happy birthday sentiment from Avery Elle Simple Sentiments stamp set and adhered it to the card and added a few embellishments to finish my cards

Thank you so much for viewing my cards today….have a happy and blessed day ahead..
