You Are My Anchor

I love using papers behind cover plate dies, especially this chevron one from Papertrey Ink. I thought these papers from the Trend Setter collection from Fancy Pants were a perfect match for this adorable little anchor, that I coloured with copic markers. I wanted to keep the whole card neutral so it could be given to a male or female, so I kept it fairly simple.

Stamps: Knotty (Avery Elle)
Ink: Tuxedo Black (Momento)
Cardstock: Whisper White, Pool Party, Real red (Stampin Up), Copic X-Press It
Papers: Trend Setter (Fancy Pants)
Accessories: Spellbinders circle and petite scallop circle dies, Papertrey Ink chevron cover plate die, The cat's Pajamas Heart trio die, Stampin Up button & Linen thread

Happy 2nd Birthday

I never get tired using the bunny stamps from The Cat's Pajamas. I love colouring them and they always look so cute on a card. I hand cut this bunny out and adhered her to a tag I cut with Lawn Fawn's birthday Tag die. I used papers from My Mind's Eye Memorable collection. I am also completely in love with this chevron ribbon from Stampin Up. I think I'm going to have to buy it in every colour, and several of the Smokey Slate colour! I never really use ribbons on my cards a lot. But adding a strip of it instead of doing a bow seems much neater and nicer to me :)

Happy 40th

I have a sweet card and pillow box for you today. I made these for a feature in Australian cardmaking Stamping & Papercraft showcasing Heartfelt Creations Sun Kissed Fleur stamp set and dies. In this case I used only the die to create these layered flowers. The pillow box is from my local variety store and I dressed it up with a white doily at the top. On the card I used the MFT modern morroco background die and left all the pieces in. And I embossed the white bursts you can see either side of the sentiment.

Stamps: Verve - Sweet Treats, Simon Says Stamp - Cupcake Party
Ink: Momento - Tuxedo Black
Cardstock: Stampin Up - Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Papers: My Mind's Eye - Remarkable, Stampin Up - Glimmer paper

Happy Birthday Dad

This stamp set from Flourishes is one I think I'll keep forever. I just keep going back to it for masculine birthday cards and fathers day cards. This card in particular is probably my favourite one I've made with it. I also used a couple of word dies from Simon Says Stamp and the papers are from My Mind's Eye's Izzy collection. I hand cut around the image.
