Hello crafty friends! My youngest daughter asked me to create a birthday card for her best friends birthday. She said it had to say bestie and also have pandas. I searched my craft room high and low for some panda stamps but thankfully right at the end I found some super cute ones so here is what I came up with...
For this card I used Clearly Besotted Cheering For You Stamps. I coloured them with Copics and cut them out. The background was created using Mama Elephant Circular Grid Cover Die. I blended 12 different coloured squares using Distress Oxide Inks and placed each one behind the circles. I couldn't find the right sentiments that would fit so I just printed some out and trimmed them down. I mounted the panel onto stripes paper, black card and silver glitter card. I added some shimmer to the stars using a Wink of Stella Pen and also some Clear Gelly Roll Glaze over the top. To finish I added some Clear Raindrops randomly onto the card.

Hello crafty friends! Today I have a card to share that I made using some of the stamps from the latest release from Lawn Fawn. There is so many amazing products in this release it was a tough choice of what to get! One of the ones I did get were these cute peas...
Apologies for the rubbish lighting that's the down side for autumn weather! For this card I used Lawn Fawn Peas On Earth Stamp Set. I coloured them all with Copics and cut them out. I gently blended a small amount of Mowed Lawn & Twisted Citron Distress Oxide Ink. I die cut letters to spell earth using Lawn Fawn Olivers ABCS Die. I used Lawn Fawn Hillside Borders Die to create the snow hills along with some glitter card. I added a stamped sentiment from the same stamp set and a few sequins to finish.

Hello all! I hope you all had a great weekend - the sun is shining here, always a good start to the week and lifts our moods too! Today I have a super cute Christmas card to share, I know it's early for Christmas but it's almost October now and all the stampings are starting to release their holiday collection. Mama Elephant just released theirs and I had to create a card straight away...
For this card I used the new Mama Elephant Gingerbread Cookies Stamp Set. This may be my favourite set ever! I coloured all the images with Copics and cut them out. I used an old MFT Die called Snow Fall to cut the background from Kraft Card. I added a slightly paler piece behind the main panel. The sentiment is the new Mama Elephant Oh So Jolly Die, I layered it a few times. I added a strip of patterned paper from my stash and added some white card strips to it.

Hello all! Today's card is a simple one featuring some cute swans. This is ideal for anniversarys, wedding and for just your loved ones. I had these ready stamped and die cut so I thought I would finally make them into a card. I kept the design simple to show off the stunning images...
For this card I used Pretty Pink Posh Pond Friends Stamp Set. I coloured the images with Copic Pens and cut them out. I created the background using my Clearly Besotted Freshly Cut Stencil with some Mermaid Lagoon Distress Oxide Ink and gently blended it out to create the background. I added a stamped sentiment and finished with some Clear Raindrops embellishments.

Hello crafty friends! A new start to a new week and I have lots of crafty projects to share with you this week. I was tidying up my craft room and I came across some wallpaper samples I had so decided to use them as a background. I do often collect them but often never get around to using them but I was nope, I am gonna use it now! So I whipped up these two...
I have been dying to use lots of my new word dies so I thought this would be the perfect the time. I used Birch Press Studio Sugar Script Big Hugs Die for the sentiment. I had some ready to use foiled sentiments which were made using Spellbinders Essential Sentiments Glimmer Plates. I used my MFT Stitched Inside Out Circles Dies and Stitched Scallop Circles. I added a strip of grey and white washi tape to each card. I cut out a flower from the paper and added a enamel dot to each one. I added some decorative bubble embellishments to each card. I added some embossed lines to the grey panel using my scoring board just for some extra detail.

Hello all! Today I am sharing a quick card I made the other night using some of the new releases from Waffle Flower. I seem to have a growing obsession with autumn leaves at the moment so of course I was super excited to get these and create with them right away...
I went for the simple look. I haven't created a kraft card base for ages and I had forgotten how much I love them, so I will have to create some more! For this card I used Waffle Flower Fall Leaves Die Set. I die cut them all from white card and coloured them with my Distress Oxide Inks. I splattered some Black Soot & Picket Fence Distress Ink onto a kraft card panel for my background. I added a strip of striped paper at the side. The die cut sentiment is Simon Says Stamp Thankful 1 Die. I also used a sentiment strip from Simon Says Stamp for the but underneath. I added some frosted drops to finish.

The trees were die cut using the Lil Inker Spooky Trees Die Set - they are my fav go to die for Halloween! I heat embossed the sentiment also from the same stamp set.

For this card I used Altenew Rose Flurries Dies. I coloured them with my Copics as I couldn't find coordinating coloured card. I then layered them up to create the 3d look. I created the background using a Clearly Besotted Stencil called Starry Sky with a little grey ink. The sentiments are both from Avery Elle - Simply Said Hugs Stamp Set & Hugs Dies. I mounted the panel onto a M&C Stitched Scallop Rectangle then onto a card blank.
