Today I created a pack for a friend for Jennifer McGuirres sharing handmade kindness month. I used the Simon Says Stamp flowers on my mind & happy everyday stamp sets.
I used Jennifer Mcguirres technique with the prisma white pencil and a white gel pen to create this background! I then heat embossed with White Hero Arts embossing powder onto some cardstock vellum! Using me tiny attacher from stampin up I stapled the vellum to the background piece!
This is a great card to do in bulk as you can do it one step at a time!
For this blog Challenege I decided to go simple! This card would be perfect to do in bulk as its quite simple! All I did was use my watercolour paper, some distress inks (abandoned coral, worn lipstick & picked raspberry) and some perfect pearls to create a watercoloured background! I then used my stampin up hearts framelits to cut a heart out of my watercolour piece!
Popping this heart up on some whisper white cardstock backed on a calypso coral card base!
And that's it!
Pretty pink posh 4mm & 6mm clear sequins

Hi Everyone. For this blog challenge you had to choose a theme starting with the letter 'N'. I chose Navy! I whipped out my Vintage Flowers Altenew Stamp Set and some inks and stamped this floral cluster. I then backed it on Winter Wonderland Designer Vellum Stack from Stampin Up. This card really took no time at all, and is definitely a card you could do in bulk.

I used the Poinsettias Inspired by Stamping stamp set, versa mark ink and my new Hero Arts White Embossing Powder to stamp this gorgeous background! I then used Barn Door, Fired Brick & Aged Mahogany distress inks to create this background. I used the lightest colour first (barn door) and covered the whole page. I then used the other 2 darker colours to pull from the edges. I then stamped the wplus9 Festive Greetings happy holidays sentiment in Stampin Up Mossy Meadow!
And that's it! Like I said it's really quite a simple card :)
Thanks for stopping by...I hope to see you again soon!
Hi All!! Todays card will be entered into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Blog Challenge - Monster Mash. For this card I used the Lawn Fawn Monster Mash Stamp Set with my Copic Markers. I also used some patterned paper from the Pink Paislee 'Atlas' Collection and some Whimsy Farm Twine. If you haven't already had a look at Whimsy Farm Twine, I suggest you look now!!! They have the most amazing colours of twine and at such a great price. Click here to jump onto her website.
Using my distress inks i created a water coloured background for my card. I then added droplets to the page to lift up some of the colour! I used the Wplus9 Silver Bells stamp & die set to cut out the stamped images and also the sentiment. Todays card is honestly one of my favourite holiday card to date. I love that its simple yet elegant.
To make this card I used some watercolour paper and peerless watercolours. I added a layer of colour onto the paper, then set it to dry. Once it had dried I then went back with a second layer of colour to create a more intense background. Once the second layer was dried I added a polka dot stencil (made with my Silhouette Cameo machine) and used a baby wipe to dab away some the colour.
Using my Silhouette Cameo Machine I cut out the work Merry in silver foil cardstock and 4 layers of white card stock to add some dimension.
Adding the word Christmas stamped onto some white cardstock and sequins this card was done!!

Today's card it yet another wedding card. I just can't seem to keep up with the amount of weddings happening at the moment. Its spring here in Australia...so its wedding season!!
This card is super simple. First off the base is Neenah Desert Storm 110lb cardstock. I then used some patterned paper from the Simon Says Stamp May Card Kit 2015. Using the Your Perfect Day stamp set from Stampin Up, I stamped on Whisper White Cardstock , backed on Crumb Cake cardstock, with Licorice Black ink from Lawn Fawn. With some clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh added for a little extra bling, my card was done!!
For todays card I stamped the snowmen on some white cardstock and coloured them in using my copic markers.
I then used the some distress inks on another piece of white cardstock and created a gradient background.
A little tip for the snowmen is that instead of cutting out those tiny little arms I stamped them on the background piece and layered the coloured snowman image on top. This is great as you would never know that it has been done like that and I don't have to stress about cutting all those small details out!
To finish off the card i added some Wink of Stella to all of the colour areas and some Glossy Accents to both of the buttons and the little heart!
So that's todays card. See below for a list of all items used on this card.
Have a lovely day and....happy crafting :)

Todays post is inspired by Stampin Up's Your Perfect Day stamp set.
I love the simplicity of this card. There really isn't much to it!!
First I stamped the wreath & extra leaves in Pistachio Pudding Stampin Up Ink pad. I then used second generation Crisp Cantaloupe ink for the flowers (this means I inked up my stamp and then stamped on a piece of scrap paper and then onto my card. This gives a slightly lighter shade of the ink that was used)
I then used the sentiment 'Congrats to you two' from the stamp set, and stamped it in Black Licorice Lawn Fawn ink.
To finish this card I added some Pretty Pink Posh Clear 4mm & 6mm sequins.
Today i wanted to show you a little project i made with my new Heidi Swapp Cinch (which by the way is the best tool in craft room)
Honestly I am like the notebook queen!! I can't get enough. And now i have all these notebooks with only a few pages available and i thought there has to be something i can do with all these spare pages. And this is what i came up with….
I cut all my pages down and added a patterned paper covered chipboard piece to the front and back creating my own new fabulous notebook. And the best part about it….i didn't have to waste all those spare pages!!
To anyone unsure about the cinch or any other binding machine….i say go for it :)
Using pinterest (of course…what on earth did we do before pinterest?!) i have found so many interesting ways to use my cinch. I will try and post some of my creations in the upcoming months.
I hope you enjoyed this fun little project…i sure did :)
