Birthday Bonanza & Stitched So Sweetly ~ Birthday Card

Hello lovely blog readers and welcome back to my blog and thanks for visiting today.
Sorry I have been a bit quiet the last couple of days. 
I had some very in depth training at work about assisting intervention and safety for those at risk of suicide. It's a topic close to my heart, and took a lot of energy! So my blog was neglected for a couple of days.

Today I have a brand new card to share with you that I actually made at my catalogue launch back in January - I was so excited to share this gorgeous new suite with all my lovely attendees and those absolutely beautiful Stitched so Sweetly Dies that I am just in love with!

This is such a fun and happy suite of products from Stampin' Up! and combines bright, happy and fun all into one gorgeous suite.
What's even better is that it can be used for so many things including male, female and kids birthdays and more!

This card is very unisex, and will be perfect to keep on hand for so many people in my life.


Here's a look at the finished card where you can see that I kept it very simple!
I chose a Basic Black cardstock card base, added a layer of Coastal Cabana Cardstock and then a layer of the beautiful Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper.
I have then added two rectangle die cuts from Coastal Cabana and Whisper White from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.

To finish off I stamped the fun and happy lion on some white cardstock with some of those fun balloons in a mixture of Mango Melody, Bermuda Bay and Grapefruit Grove.
Tip: This lion needs to be stamped in multiple parts and pieces together, it's best to refer to the dies (if using them) to see how to best stamp him, and how far apart to stamp the bits and pieces.
I have also cut a cute party hat using the dies from Bermuda Bay and added one of those awesome Assorted Pom Poms with a glue dot!

Finally I have stamped a 'Happy Birthday' sentiment in Bermuda Bay Ink on Coastal Cabana Cardstock and fussy cut this out and applied with liquid glue to the left hand side of the rectangle.

To embellish I have added some of the sequins that you can get FREE at the moment when you spend $90 or more in my store during Sale-a-Bration.

I have also added some fun Daffodil Delight Ruched Ribbon in a bow.


Here's a close up of the finished card where you can see all the details I have added and just how fun they are.
I also spritzed some fun Wink of Stella which you can 'just' see. I promise it's sparkly in person!


Here's my decorated inside where I have added another sentiment in Bermuda Bay and added layers of Coastal Cabana and Whisper White.

I hope you got some inspiration from my card share today using this fun and happy party suite!


I've got lots more fun cards and projects to share with you, so be sure to keep checking back.

Big crafty hugs! xx

Hello lovely crafty people!
Thanks so much for popping by my blog today.
Today I wanted to share something pretty awesome with you and that is the GORGEOUS Kerchief Card Kit.
I think we can forget about the gorgeous kits that Stampin’ Up! offer sometimes, but they really are the coolest things?
Why? Because everything is provided for you - and you can have some easy no thinking craft time.
It's great for those times that you feel like you want to craft but don't have any mojo or inspiration.

What's even cooler about THIS card kit?
It's FREE! 
YEP! Free! Spend $90 with me in my store until the 31st of March, 2020 and get this FREE with your order if you wish! How cool is that?


Here's a look at the two designs that this kit makes. You get supplies to make four of each design...so eight cards in total!

It comes with the most gorgeous foiled foliage too. These cards really do sparkle and shine!
The vellum is just gorgeous and so elegant also.

Here's some info on this card kit direct from the Stampin’ Up! website:

 Makes 8 cards: 4 each of 2 designs
* Folded card size: 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" (10.8 x 14 cm)

Here's a close up look at the completed cards where you can see some of that detail and the beautiful foiling. The card kit also comes with some adorable linen thread that makes for such beautiful textural elements to the cards.

You don't even have to stamp to create these beauties. The labels all come pre-stamped and in multiple languages for you to choose from? Great if you have an overseas friend that speaks another language. You're all set!


Look at that beautiful floral die cut and the stunning gold dot foiled vellum.

Honey Bee ~ Friendship Card

Hello and thanks for popping by today.
Today I have a fun card to share with you using one of my favourite bundles from the Mini Catalogue...the Honey Bee Bundle!
It is just so cute!! and even better? Spend $90 by buying the bundle and a couple of other things and you can get the coordinating Golden Honey Designer Series Paper (which has gorgeous foiled designs on it) FREE!

I have used this paper on the card today, and have used that gorgeous black & white stripe and sponged it with some Mango Melody Ink. It's a really quick and easy way to achieve a fun ombre background.

I have gone with a basic colour combo of Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana, Basic Black and Gold. I love the bold effect of these colours together. 


Here's a look at the finished card where you can see how simple it really is. This is a card that you could definitely make in bulk!

To create this card I followed these steps:
  • Cut a card base from Mango Melody. I have created a top folding card.
  • Cut a layer of Basic to 10cm x 14.4cm. Adhere this to your card base with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  • Cut a piece of Golden Honey DSP to 9.7cm x 14.1cm and sponge this piece with either a Sponge Brayer or Stampin' Sponges with Mango Melody working from the bottom up and applying more ink to the bottom to achieve an ombre effect. Adhere this to the Basic Black cardstock with liquid glue.
  • Cut a strip of Whisper White cardstock to 9.7cm x 1cm and stamp the sentiment 'Think of You Sweet Friend' in Memento Black ink to the left hand side. Set aside.
  • Cut a 'honeycomb' piece from Coastal Cabana using the coordinating dies. Also cut a bee die from the Gold Glimmer Paper.
  • Adhere the honeycomb piece where shown with liquid glue. Adhere the sentiment strip over the top of this piece, and then adhere your die cut bee with Glue dots or Liquid Glue.
  • Die a bow from the Basic Black Satin Ribbon and adhere this to the card where shown with Glue Dots.
  • Embellish the card with Glitter Enamel Dots in Coastal Cabana.
  • Embellish with some Wink of Stella spritzes.
  • Decorate the inside of the card if you wish (see picture below)


Here's a close up look at the finished card where you can see some of the details and the fun shimmer that the Wink of Stella adds.


here's a look at the decorated inside of the card.
No 'naked' cards around here. I have stamped my bees in Mango Melody and added some Wink of Stella to them once stamped for some extra sparkle.

I hope you enjoyed today's creative share.

Here's a look at these gorgeous products and why you want to grab them before they sell out! They are just adorable.


The gorgeous Honey Bee bundle.


The gorgeous Golden Honey Designer Series Paper that you can earn FREE with a $90 order.
