So Sweet

Hello everyone! Today I am sharing my latest card that follows a sketch from JustRite Stampers and a photo inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room.

You are asked to create a card or project inspired by our beautiful inspiration photo USING PINK, GREEN, RUFFLES and RIBBONS!

My design began with the papers. I love the My Minds Eye Lost and Found papers so I began from there. I die cut an oval using Spellbinders opulent ovals and layered it. I moved on to the background papers. I inked,distressed and stitched the edges of my background papers. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create a frame around it. Then I layered my elements. I decided it needed some bling so I added some rhinestone flourishes plus my last Want to Scrap labels bling to frame my stamped sentiment. Ruffled ribbon, a bow and a butterfly complete my card.


Paper: My Minds Eye Lost and Found Market Street, Kaisercard ballet, Stampin' Up! very vanilla

Stamp: JustRite Stampers Just the Right Words

Ink: Versafine onyx black, antique linen distress ink

Other: Spellbinders opulent ovals and fancy tags two, Martha Stewart mini daisy punch, Want to Scrap fancy tags two white, Ctampin' Up! vintage brad, Ruby Rock-it Reminisce trimmings, Art Stamps butterfly, Bella bling swirl, ribbon, Becca's peg bow maker, Zutter Distrezz it all.

Just Believe

Hello everyone. I am sharing another card. This time I have selected a sketch from The Sweet Stop and the inspiration challenge from The Ribbon Reel. You are asked to create a card / project inspired by the photo and include PEARLSRIBBON & LACE/TWINE.

I started my card by looking at my papers. I went with some My Minds Eyes papers as there were a number of lovely pink patterned papers in the collection. I used a Martha Stewart punch to create a border to frame the patterned papers. Next I added some lace and ribbon.

I haven't used a quote in a while and pulled out a Stampin' Up! stamp set and used the quote from there. While the die was still on. I sponged the edges using a distress ink. I used foam tape between all the layers. I added some pearls, flowers and a butterfly to complete my card.


Paper: My Minds Eye Lost and Found, Kaisercard ballet, Stampin' Up! very vanilla

Hello everyone! I hope that you are enjoying your weekend. It's a long weekend here in Australia...three days!! I decided to use this time to create another page for my brother's scrapbook. I selected his kindy photo to use this time. Looking at the colours of the photo I decided to use some of my Maja Designs papers. I just love the vintage feel they have and the versatility of the ranges.

After I had used a punch to punch the edges of my background paper, I used a mask and some gesso to add some subtle texture. I repositioned it and used only small sections on both corners.

I used some Dusty Attic chippies. I applied a layer of gesso and inked the edges. Once dry, I applied some crackle medium to create an aged effect.

I had used some banners on my layout. When I die cut them they were only 6", but I joined them together behind the circular cant see the joins. I also used one as a place to add my title. I decided to add a thin border around each, to help them stand out.


Paper : Maja Designs Vintage Summer Basics, Kaisercard chocolate, Su! crumb cake

Ink: Distress ink walnut stain

Other: Martha Stewart swirling lace punch, Sizzix fancy rectangle frame, Die-namics fishtail flags, Manor House Creations leaves small, Dusty Attic flourish #7 and dusty in bloom, The Crafters Workshop circle template, Prima stencil, Jo Sonjas crackle medium, gesso, Websters Pages alpha.

You're So Sweet

Hello everyone. I am sharing my latest card with you that I have created. I followed a few things week to create my card, a sketch, inspiration photo and a mood board.

At The Shabby Tea Room, you are asked to create a card or project inspired by THE COLORS FROM THE PHOTO, INCLUDE FLOWERS AND A TEA THEME!

To create my background, I used a Martha Stewart border punch to create a mat. I layered it with some pink cardstock followed by papers from Maja Design. I distressed the edges and sewed around the edge. I started layering by adding some complimentary papers, lace and seam binding. I stamped my sentiment and coloured it in using my SU! markers.

I had a resin teapot, which I placed upon some cardstock. I added some foam tape to add some dimension. Of course my cards always have a bow and some flowers!

The sketch that I used is from Mojo Monday. The mood board is from Maja Designs. The mood board provides some inspiration for you to be creative. It's a great concept, especially when you have some beautiful papers to create with.


Paper: Maja Designs vintage summer basics, SU! very vanilla

Stamp: JustRite You're so sweet set

Ink: Versafine vintage sepia

Other: Martha Stewart eyelet lace and doily lace punches, Spellbinders picot edge circles, lacey circles, standard circles small, Memory Box Amira flourish, Melissa Frances resin teapot, Ruby Rock-It lace, seam binding, Hooked on Craft flowers, doily.

Cherish ~Maja Design Papers~

Hello everyone. I am back again to share another card that I have made. This time it follows the photo inspiration from The Ribbon Reel. You are asked to create a card / project using VIOLETS & GREENS and include RIBBON(S) & FLOWER(S).

I haven't created a dimensional flower lately and decide that a hydrangea would be perfect. I used a Martha Stewart punch and punched out lots of small hydrangea petals. Using a stylus and a mouse mat, I pressed down the centre of each to cup the petals, which rounds them and adds dimension. I stamped my hydrangea image twice and coloured in using my Stampin' Up! markers. I cut both out and attached them together with some foam tape. I then added the cupped petals on top.


Paper: Maja Designs Ska vi ta en Fika, Kaisercard latte, DCWV brights, Stampin' Up! very vanilla and watercolour paper

Stamp: JustRite Botanical Medallions and Banners

Ink: Memento tuxedo black and grape jelly, Stampin' Up! markers

Other: Martha Stewart hydrangea punch, Die-namics fancy flourish, Spellbinders nestabilities floral ovals, JustRite nested oval medallions, ribbon, lace, stylus, mouse pad, Distrezz it All, Becca's peg bow maker.
