For My Grandnephew To Be!

Yes, I'm going to be a great aunt (a young one, I know), and I can't wait for his arrival in early September!

Here is a card I made for his mummy's baby shower last month...

For this card I used some now retired Stampin' Up! paper on Whisper White cardstock, and an image from the Bundle of Love stamp set. The image was coloured using SU markers. The sentiment was punched using the Word Window punch, and the pram was embellished with silver brads.

Now bring on September!

I've owned this adorable little C.C. Designs stamp for some time how but hadn't had the opportunity to use it up until the recent birthday of one of my daughter's friends...

The image was coloured with Stampin' Up! Stampabilities markers. The sentiment is from a retired SU stamp set called Vintage Labels. It was punched using SU punches.

Little Aviary Owl Card

Hello everyone.

Hope you've all been well. I'm back after a long Blogging absence with this quick and easy square card featuring the cute little owl from the now retired Aviary set from stamping up.

Sadly, the photos are not the best. :(

The little owl was stamped in Pool Party onto Whisper White cardstock, and mounted onto Basic Black and Pool Party cardstock, which was then mounted onto the Crumb Cake card. The little accent flower seems to make an appearance in just about every one of my posts. It's from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack. It has been embellished with an adhesive half pearl. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.

And that's all there is to it!

Such a cute, quick and easy card that is has become one of my 'go to' cards, having made a few of them now. :)

Pyjama / Sleepover / Slumber Party Invitations

If there's one thing that will bring me out of the crafting woodworks, it's my daughters' birthdays. And yep, it is that time again and boy, it sure feels good to be crafting again.

In keeping with my simple style, these invitations had to be cute with clean lines, and quick to make. The only brief I received from Mia and Demi were that they had to be in pink and blue tones, respectively. Here is what I came up with...

The base card of Whisper White and Crumb Cake were cut using the Window Frames Collection Framelits. The little PJ's were cut out of SU card and scrapbooking papers, using a Sizzix die that I own. The little flowers were cut using one of the punches from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack and embellished with an adhesive pearl. The little tags were personalised and cut using circle and scallop circle punches from SU. They were tied on using SU twine and ribbon from my stash. The gorgeous little coat hangers are from my stash. I purchased them years ago, hoping to use them one day. They sure came in handy. :)

I love how they turned out and I love that they were fairly quick to put together.

Now bring on those parties! :)
