Birthday Balloons


I made this card for my son's birthday yesterday, I cased it from a card on Pinterest created by Scrappin' & Stampin' in GJ. DS likes red and black and I threw a bit of grey into break it up.

I'm adding my card to the following blogs:

Silver Christmas


Today's card is a Christmas card to add to my very small stash. I stamped the background with a large Christmas stamp in DI Hickory Smoke then layered with two blues. I then die cut the sentiment on silver paper to make it pop and mounted on foam tape.

Funky Floral Happy Birthday


Definitely my last card for the long weekend, sadly I have to go do the ironing. I have stamped some flowers on some card that I coloured with Distress Oxides (love them so much!) and fussy cut them. Off set and framed a layer with black card, mounted my flowers and die cut my 'happy' twice and glued together also a bit off set, stamped a 'birthday' and coloured with Tombow markers, added sequins to finish off.

Watercolour Florals


Another card for my long weekend...for this card I embossed my base card with my favourite cuttlebug folder and added a die cut stitched rectangle for my sentiment. I then stamped the blooms onto some watercolour card I had created with Distress Oxides and fussy cut them out then backed them with some leaves that I die cut out of a bit of scrap that I had also created with DO's, I then added a couple of pearls to finish it off.

Hatched Happy Birthday


For today's card, I have used a new die from Kaisercraft. I have backed it with a bit of left over card that I created using my Distress Oxides, cut a 'happy' out with a matching colour and finished it off with a stamped 'birthday'.

Happy Birthday to You



Today's card I used some left over background card I had created with DI's. As I really like the colours I didn't really want to cover it too much so I die cut these fine flowers and attached them then mounted a sentiment to finish if off. I let the flowers and the sentiment hang over the side of the card for a bit of interest.

Blossoms in Blue


Today I have a special birthday to celebrate, my Aunt is turning 80 and we are having a family lunch today to celebrate her milestone. As it has been a couple of weeks since I have made a card, I popped into my craft room last night to quickly whip one up. Luckily I had this background card laying around that I had made previously using Distress Oxides and stencils and as I didn't want to detract from the lovely soft colours and stencilled image I kept the rest CAS. I die cut a 'happy' stamped the 'birthday' and added some tiny flowers with jewels to finish it off. I am adding my card to the below challenges.

Round Floral Birthday


It's been a while since I have made a card and as I'm actually not a fan of shaped cards, this has really made me step outside my comfort zone. It's also been a while since I have used DP on my cards so it's a big day for firsts...lol...and I'm actually really happy with how it has turned out. I am adding my card to the following challenge.

Die Cut Birthday Window


Another card for my crafting Saturday, for this card I have die cut out Birthday and layered flowers underneath it. I have fussy cut a flower, added a stamped 'happy' then finished off with sequins.

I am adding this card to the following sites:



Aussie Birthday



Today's card has an aussie spin to it with a Kookaburra as the focal point. I stamped some branches then extended them to fit the Kooka on. Die Cut the Kooka twice as they have a very pretty blue/teal on their underbelly. Mounted him on the branch and added a sentiment.

Wonderful Fabulous You


Scored a bit of play time in my craft room yesterday. I made my background with one of my Christmas presents...Distress Oxides...cut a stitched frame out with another Christmas present, added my favourite die cut flowers and finished it off with a sentiment I haven't used before. I must say, I gravitate to blues and yellows, probably because they look so fresh and my poppy die cuts are a fav, probably because they are always 'just enough'with out being over the top. I am adding my card to the following challenges...
