Bee Happy Card using Hunkydory Craft Stack and Gold Mirri

Good Morning!
 
Today I am a card made with some elements from the Bee Happy Craft Stack by Hunkydory. My daughter loves "bee" and will point them out if we see any on our walks or in the garden. This craft stack is stunning and the bee illustrations are so sweet.


I kept this card simple and on a white rectangle I used Broken China Distress Ink around the edges and added white gel dots to match the background to the topper. I then die cut some Gold Mirri card flowers and leaves using Sweet Dixie Dies. To finish I used Gold Mirri for the borders and added some clear sequins.

A Cute Lama Card using Making Cards Magazine Papers with a surprise!

Good Morning Everybody!
 
Today I am sharing a card I made using the Free Lama Craft Paper Collection from an old issue of Making Cards Magazine. I fell in love with these cute on trend papers a lot of fussy cutting helped to create this card . . . 


I nipped into the kitchen to get my 2 year old daughter a drink. She comes running in and says "Mum! Look!" How could I be cross at her drawing inside the card when these amazing faces looked so surprised? :D
 

So I am keeping this very special card in my collection!

Hedgie Hoggie Hugs Little Claire Designs DT Card

Good morning to you all!
 
Today I am sharing a DT card I made using the Little Claire Designs new stamp set Hedgie Hoggie Hugs for Christmas. For this card I also used a white Elegant Rectangle card blank. How cute are these Hedgehogs decorating a step ladder!!!
  

I used Distress Ink in Candied Apple and Lucky Clover for the background with a star stencil from Stampin' Up! I used the Distress Inks as watercolours to colour parts of the stamped image and Promarkers for the other parts. To finish I added Card Candi dots and a little glitter to make the baubles stand out.

You're Fabulous DT card using For the Love of Stamps June collection stamps

Happy Sunday!

Today I am sharing a Design Team card from the June collection of stamps by For the Love of Stamps by Hunkydory. My inspiration for this card came from the mask and is styled to recreate a vanity mirror and make-up table.
I used the lovely You're Fabulous Stamps and matching mask.


Products Used:

You’re Fabulous! Stamp Set and mask
Card blank, 
Stamping Mirri Mats - Circles
Adorable Scorable - Matt-tastic Selection
Perfect Backgrounds Stamping Pad – Pretty Pastel
Stickles - Bronze
Versafine Onyx Black Ink Pad
Promarkers: Baby Pink, Ice Grey 1, 2 & 3, Oatmeal, Vanilla, Tan, Cocoa, Ruby, Cerise
Tape and Foam Pads


I traced around the mask and coloured the mirror in with the Baby Pink Promarker. I made the table from a rectangle and sketched in my own mirror legs. The mirri mat made a perfect mirror and I stamped and fussy cut out all the makeup elements to make this card. To finish I added glitter to the mirror to create shining lights.

Birthday Candle Card using Big and Bold Wish by Uniko

Good Morning!
 
Today I am sharing a clean and simple (CAS) card I have created using my beautiful stamps from the fab UK company Uniko. This stamp set is called Wish and is from the Big and Bold collection.


I kept this card simple (I know not my usual style but I wanted to make the beautiful stamps the feature) by having a limited colour palette and a lot of white background. The stamps are fab and I cleanly stamped the wording straight onto the card blank. I stamped the candles on a separate rectangle, having a play with the flame, then layered onto a green rectangle to finish. Next time will have a go at using lots of ink with these stamps ;)
