Bunny garden

Hi everyone,

Today's card features the cute bunny from Hello Bluebird. When I saw this set I just couldn't resist. I especially love little McGregor lying down. He makes me smile:)

I Copic coloured all the images and fussy cut them out as I did not purchase the matching die. I set them aside to go on to create my background panel.

The background was created using a stencil for the clouds and some Distress ink. I then blended some light brown ink to the lower part to resemble earth or dirt. Die cut the panel using a stitched rectangle die.

I used some patterned paper to create the grassy area using a Lawn Fawn die.

I added a piece of patterned paper to my card front and then went on to adding the layers and images to my card using foam tape.

Some glossy accents were added to the watering can to give it the effect of  shiny metal.

Well that's it for my card and thanks so much for stopping by.

Altenew Peruvian Lily

Hi everyone,

I just love Altenew's layering stamps and this Peruvian Lily is just beautiful.

I used a bunch of different colours of Altenew inks to create the flower and leaves.
The background was created with distress ink and a scalloped die to cut it out. I added some black paint splatters.

The sentiment was stamped with black ink and the pieces were added to a card base die cut with a dotted rectangle die.

Some crystal accents were added to the card along with glossy accents to the centre of the flower.

Well that's it for my card and thanks so much for stopping by.

Hi everyone,

Well Fall is here and it's my favourite time of the year. There's a slight chill in the air and the leaves are slowly starting to change colours.

Our daughter recently moved to Hawaii where the temperature is still quite hot and the palm leaves blow in the wind. I made this card with her in mind.

I used a Newton's Nook stencil and a couple of ink colours to create the background which I ran through my die cutting machine to add the border around the card.

I stamped the sweet little Mama Elephant monkeys and coloured them using Copics. I didn't purchase the die set so I had to fussy cut the images.

The Lawn Fawn sentiment was die cut with green cardstock and also a piece of dark brown glitter cardstock to add a little accent behind the die piece.

The whole panel was mounted onto a green card base using a sheet of foam.

Well that's it for my card and thanks so much for stopping by.

WOW You amaze me!

Hi everyone,

Well it's an incredibly rainy, windy day here so I am in my craft room and have a card to share that I created using some Alcohol inks which I absolutely love. They are a bit messy (rubber gloves recommended) but are so much fun and the results are awesome every time.


I blended 2 different colours on a panel of Yupo paper. I used a Mama Elephant window cover die on a piece of yellow cardstock and foam mounted it over my ink blended background piece. I die cut the WOW sentiment using a MFT die-namics die 3 times and applied it to the background slightly offsetting the bottom layer of white so as to create a shadow effect.

The Simon Says Stamp sentiment was stamped in black ink and heat embossed using some clear embossing powder.

I added some sparkly embellishments and that's it for my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.

thanks friend

Hi everyone,

Today I have a card to share that I am entering in the current Simon Says Stamp Flickr challenge where the theme is 'Totally Resistible'.

I started with a Simon Says Stamp stencil and added Versamark ink to it and heat set with white embossing powder. I then blended 2 different colours of Distress Oxide over the panel and then used a large stitched rectangle die to cut out the piece.

I die cut the thanks die twice and glued them together and added them to the card base. Stamped the sentiment onto a strip of pink cardstock with black ink and applied clear embossing powder and heat set. Added to the card base with a bit of foam tape.

Added the whole panel to a card base of 110lb Neenah white cardstock, added some sequins and that's it for my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
