Happiest of Birthdays

 Hi everyone,

Today's card was created with a stencil and 2 colours of Distress inks and some ink blending which is probably one of my favourite techniques. The colours are nice and happy which is perfect for this very snowy day!




I die cut a white panel with a stitched rectangle die and placed my stencil over top. I started at the bottom and blended the inks alternating between the 2 colours.

Once I was happy with the blended panel I set that aside and die cut the 'friend' die from some black cardstock. The other sentiment is from Paper Rose which is a package of pre-printed sentiment strips on both black and white cardstock. The package contains so many sentiments for every occasion which is great.

I adhered the panel to my card base and added the sentiment strip with some foam tape and adhered the die cut piece directly to the card.

I added Nuvo crystal drops in 2 colours on all the tiny dots.

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

Paper Rose Leaf Burst stencil

Celebrate the season

 Hi everyone,

Today I have a card to share using a couple of stencils and some embossing paste. It was difficult to capture the beautiful sparkle of the paste with the lighting I had on the day I took the photo but it really is quite pretty 🤩 





I started with the tree stencil first and applied some Gina K glitter gel on to a piece of wood grain card stock. I set that aside to dry and went on to die cutting 3 tiny birds from some red card stock.

Once the first stencil piece was dry I carefully added a snow stencil to my piece and added some distress paste.

I mounted the panel with foam tape on to a piece of black card stock and then added that to my card.

The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder and added to my card with foam tape.

I popped up the little bird with a small foam dot and that completes my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by 🙏🏻

Newton’s Nook Evergreens stencil
Lawn Fawn Snowy Sky stencil

Joyful wishes

Hi everyone, 

With the weather getting colder and some snowflakes spotted here and there I seem to be drawn to creating cards with snowflakes.





I first started by die cutting a white panel using a stitched rectangle die.

I then used the new Lawn Fawn snowflake stencil with some Nuvo glacier paste over the panel.
This paste goes on smoothly and creates a nice shiny finish.

I stamped and die cut the sentiment.

The whole panel was foam mounted to my card base striped panel.

I added some red sequins and this completes my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by 🙏🏻

Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangle die set
Lawn Fawn Snowflake Trio stencil
Lawn Fawn Sparkle’n Shine patterned paper

Christmas ornaments

 Hi everyone,

Today I have a card to share that I created using mostly Sunny Studio Stamps products.


I started by stamping the 3 ornaments in 2 different shades of blue ink from Altenew. I didn’t have the matching die so I had to fussy cut them out.

The branch was stamped and die cut with the matching die. The sentiment was stamped and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. Also I didn’t have the matching die so I fussy cut this too.

I used a large rectangle die to cut a piece of Lawn Fawn patterned paper for my background. The panel was adhered directly to my card with glue. All the other pieces were added with foam tape.

Before I added the ornaments to my card I poked a little hole in the branches and added gold thread to hang them from. I also added some Stickles glitter to the branches.

Well that’s it for this card and thanks so much for stopping by 🙏🏻

Sunny Studio Retro Ornament stamp set

Let it snow, snowflakes

 Hi everyone, 

Today I have a card to share using some fun Lawn Fawn products.




I started by die cutting a bunch of snowflakes with Neenah solar white card stock using 2 sets of snowflake dies.
I then adhered a piece of patterned card stock directly to my card base and trimmed around the sides to fit the card.

The snowflakes were added with glue and some were popped up with foam tape.

I stamped the sentiment with Simon Says Stamp scuba ink, cut along the top edge and added some chunky glitter.

Before adding the sentiment to my card with foam tape I added a small piice of patterned paper for a little accent.

As the background panel has little gold dots throughout I decided that was enough accent for my card.

Well that’s it for this card and thanks so much for stopping by 🙏🏻
