A fun spring card

Hello how is everyone doing? I hope your all well and safe.

I managed to get into my craft room last night it felt so long since I made a card and it felt so good just to craft.

I used the gorgeous Magengo spring release and Papermilldirect card.

These images are just full of charm and it was so fun to colour them. Plus it’s always handy to have some cute birthday cards on hand!

I hope you all stay safe.

Thanks for stopping by today!

A million birthday kisses

Hello again!

I have a sweet card for you today on the Magengo blog using the gorgeous cats from the Magengo our special moment stamp set. These images are just adorable and so much fun to colour.

I coloured the cats in using spectrum noir markers. I also used a pretty piece of paper that I die cut and adhered to the card base. I then die cut some grass using a pretty green shimmer card. Once these were adhered down I die cut two clouds and adhered these to my card. I then heat embossed a sentiment using white embossing powder. To finish the card off I added a small die cut heart.

I really love these cats and you can have so much colouring the images in with different markers.
There’s lots more cute designs at the Magengo shop.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy birthday card

Hello crafty friends.

You can never have too many birthday cards ready to be sent so I made this cute birthday card using Pretty pink posh stamps and dies .

I have also used some pretty Papermilldirect Perla Sirio colour card and Papermilldirect silver glitter non shedding card.

I also added some pretty pigment ink and coloured the images in with my copic markers. I think these images are just adorable and they were fun to colour and bring them to life.

If your wondering what the puffy dots are they are polystyrene foam balls. I thought it would be fun to use these instead of sequins.

And I have to say the Silver glitter card is pretty amazing as it does what it says and not shed glitter. I’ve used glitter card before and most of it ends up on my hands and everywhere but the card!

Thanks so much for stopping by today I hope you have a great evening!

Unicorn birthday card

Hello crafty friends.

I absolutely love unicorns and made a sweet birthday card for the girls today. I’ve used this adorable waffle flower stamp it just makes me smile every time I look at it.

I’ve made a shaker circle so that the unicorn is looking out. I’ve also heat embossed the sentiment strip and die cut the word hooray in glitter card because let’s be honest it’s not a proper unicorn card without glitter.

I could of easily added more glitter but I had to stop myself ha ha!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Have a great day.

Party time!

Hello again!

I have s sweet birthday card up on the papermilldirect blog today. It’s always fun making birthday cards. Here’s the tutorial:

I love making fun and colourful cards especially birthday cards. I have a really fun shaker card for you today. 

You will need:

You will also need:

  • Critter stamps
  • Acetate 
  • Sequins and Gems
  • White Embossing Powder
  • Pink Embossing Powder
  • Heat Gun
  • Versafine Ink
  • Copic Markers
  • Circle die

Party

To make the card base I trimmed down a piece of Turquoise Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm to 4 1/4 inches and scored this at 5 7/8 inches. I then trimmed another piece of card 4 1/4 inches by 5 7/8 inches so that this piece will sit on the card base.

Using this piece of card and a circle die run this through the die cutting machine so you will have a circle cut out in the center of your card. Turn the piece of card over and use Anita’s PVA Tacky Glue 60ml or Stick it! Double Sided Tape 6mmand add this around the edge of the circle. Place your piece of acetate over this and let the glue dry. Once dry use some Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm and run this around the edge of the circle. Fill the circle up with sequins and gems and adhere to the card base.

Using a piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm stamp and colour all your images and colour them in. Trim them out and adhere to the card using Stick it! 3D Foam Tape 9mm.

On another piece of Turquoise Cumbria Colour Card 270gsm stamp the greeting and heat emboss this with white embossing powder. On another piece of White Card Super Smooth 250gsm stamp and heat emboss a birthday greeting and adhere both to your card.

To finish the card off add some extra sequins or gems.
