Hey everyone! Happy New Year to all my lovely blog readers! Sending best wishes to everyone for the new year – I know mine is going to be full of change…our first baby due in February, relocating to Zurich, lots of changes!
Thanks for stopping by & have a great New Year’s Eve!
Good morning virtual crafty friends and happy Monday.
I’m here today with a fun challenge for Cupcake – this week we’re doing patchwork projects & your card must features patchwork of some kind. Our sponsor this week is the generous Simon Says Stamp who are offering one lucky winner a $20 gift certificate.
And, its a new month, which means we have a new monthly sponsor – this month we’re joined by Bunny Zoe’s, who are generously giving a £15 gift certificate.
So, onto this week’s project – this is a baby card and I made the ‘B’ by doing a messy arrangement of scraps onto a sheet of scrap paper & then die-cutting a large ‘B’ with my Cricut (thanks to some inspiration from the fab Betsy Veldman). The edges are messily stitched with pink and distressed with white ink.
Thanks for stopping by & don’t forget to check out the other DT projects – they are sure to inspire! Hope you have a chance to play along!
Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had great weekends and are ready for another week. There is finally some sunshine in London, so I’m happy.
Today I’m back with another great Cupcake challenge. Hopefully you got to enjoy the Cupcake birthday treasure hunt! This week the challenge is a Gift Card – a card & gift in one. I put together this set of baby-oriented thank you notes that I’ll be giving to a girlfriend of mine who is about to deliver. I figure until she gets some personalised thank you notes made, she could use these easy-to-mail single layer cards.
This week we are joined by Bugaboo Stamps who are offering one lucky winner seven digital images!
And, because August is birthday month, we have 3 monthly sponsors! We are joined by Crafts U Love,who are generously giving a £15 Gift Voucher to spend in their store, Mo’s Digital Pencil, who are offering a $10 gift voucher and lastly, Sew Sweet. Sew Sweet are offering one lucky winner a £10 Gift Voucher.
Make sure to visit the Cupcake blog to check out all the great DT creations and join the fun!
Just a quick post today to share some rainbow cards. I have been making a lot of these lately – simple layout, rainbow color scheme and a touch of twine.
Hey everyone! Hope your Monday is going well. Yet another baby card to share today!
This sweet little vintage teddy bear is for our new challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenge — things with tails. I’m sure everyone has a cute little critter they can ink up for this challenge so make sure to play along! I got out my new October Afternoon chipboard & paper for this card – I can’t get enough of that stuff!
This week we’re sponsored by the generous Simon Says Stamp.
Simon Says Stamp are offering one lucky winner the opportunity to win a $20 Gift Voucher.
And thats not all! Its the beginning of the month so, of course, we have a new monthly sponsor. This month, Icing on the Cupcake is joined by Little Claire Designs!

So, yesterday I finally opened my new package of Washi Tape from Etsy seller Yur1kub0 and decided to make some clean & simple baby cards.
I was at a little bit of a loss for where to start with these gorgeous tapes, so I turned to the latest issue of Paper Crafts, Card Creations and CASEd a card by Courtney Kelley and stitched through a strip of Washi tape. I also used Lucy’s sketch over at Lily Pad Cards as inspiration for these simple cards. I think these would make a great set — looks like I’ll need more Washi tape!

Definitely not when it comes to Thickers!
I recently indulged in some glittery Thickers and couldn’t wait to put them to use. I rarely do cards that have no stamping, but decided to give it a try for these baby cards. They came together in no time!
A super quick post tonight – I made a big mess making cards today and I’ve got to clean up before my other half gets home!
I never make round cards, but was inspired by the current challenge at Card Patterns & I thought I’d give it a try. This little number came together in no time and it is so sweet & cheerful – perfect for a new little boy! A great use of double-sided paper, which I often feel so guilty about using (I can’t stand the thought of one gorgeous side being stuck down forever!). Please excuse the bare nails!
The colors for this challenge are for the
Wednesday evening already? I seriously don’t know where the time goes!
A couple baby cards to share today – I had so much fun using some sweet My Minds Eye Alphabet Soup chipboard for these.
This first card is a CASE of the super talented Laurie Willison’s card here. I was in love with this card when I saw it and really hope she doesn’t mind that I’ve borrowed the design & her clever use of gingham. She is one of my all time fave designers – I could CASE all her stuff!
