Super quick birthday card


Hi guys!

My theme this month has been quick and easy, cards that take very little time (as I have very little this month, gearing up to move house and country!)

Right, are you ready?? This is another "buckle up coz it's gonna be fast"card:

Step 1: grab coloured card stock. I went with bright and cheerful yellow. Fold into card size you want.
Step 2: run through die cutting machine with a scalloped frame die, just off the top of the card so it doesn't chop it in half.
Step 3: Stamp one of the gorgeous flower stamps from Kennedy Grace Creations in the middle. I went with Beautiful Bloom-Sweet Rose and stamped it in black to make the contrast as big as possible.
Step 4: Die cut a frame of black (or other colour if you fancy it) card stock and add around the flower to frame it prettily.
Step 5: Add sentiment. I used a die cut word and stamped another one to make it say 'Happy Birthday'. Again, I used black to keep it simple but elegant.
Step 6: Add embellishments if you feel it needs it. I decided against it to challenge myself to make a clean and simple card, something that isn't really my forte.
Step 7: Write your greeting and post it! Done!!



Phew, is anyone else sweaty? I sometimes get so excited about crafting my heart races. Surely that counts as cardio then??

Happy crafting from Erica and see you on the other side in a few weeks!

Matching Poinsettia Card and Tag

Rachel here today with a card featuring a peek at a future set.


I decided to create a matching card and tag set to use this Christmas season. The Poinsettias are gorgeous and so much fun to color!


Right now, these images are in digital format, so I arranged them in a Word document and then printed them out on some Neenah Solar White cardstock. I used my KGC stitched rectangle die to cut out the portion of the images that I wanted to use and then used my Copics to color them in and added shadows around them. I used my MISTI to line up my sentiment on top of my panel and then heat embossed in gold. I adhered my panel to a Fog Gray card base to add a little contrast.


Next up, I used a tag die to cut out another image for the front of my tag and then used the same process to color it in. I cut another tag from some white cardstock and then heat embossed my sentiment on it. I adhered the sentiment to the back of my poinsettia image to create a completed tag which also hid any bleeding from…

Counting Down!

Hi its Karen on the blog with you today.

I think I may be in denial about Christmas.  It just seems to be sneaking up very very fast.  I know I have loads to do and really need to get going. Hopefully posting this Christmas Ornament may just help. This super cute little image from Kennedy Grace Creations is such a joy to colour and even though he's a christmas critter I think he could be used all year round on projects.  I used a die cut from Frantic Stamper Inc to cut the ornament in very sparkly paper.  Then popped the image up on foam.  Added some silver twine and there you have a super cute and easy ornament to adorn the tree or a special gift tag.  I think these would look lovely against shiny white wrapping paper.

I know it looks huge in the photo but its approximately 2.5 x 2.5 inches in size.


Have a great day!
