My cousin recently had her two children Christened, one is still a baby but her little girl Ivy is two and a half so the usual Christening cards didn’t seem to fit. So I pulled out Fable Friends, Make A Difference and the retired set Inspired Events.
I wanted to personalise each card so used the phrase “Congratulations on your Christening” from Inspired Events and then used the Make A Difference stamp set to spell out the children’s names. If you didn’t manage to get hold of Inspired Events you can spell the sentiment out with Make A Difference, I’d highly recommend the Stamparatus for this as it made lining up the names very easy for me.
For the baby boy card I used a colour scheme of Seaside Spray and Pretty Peacock, mostly so the sentiment would stand out against the background. To finish this card I just added the cute little rabbit from Fable Friends coloured with a blue jacket.
For the little girl card I used a colour scheme of Petal Pink and Flirty Flamingoand gave the rabbit a little pink jacket this time. I also gave the girl rabbit a little skirt by using the Petal Pink striped Organdy Ribbon and some Tear N Tape.
I’d to know what stamps sets you’d use for Christening cardsas I have a couple more to make soon.

Today I’m sharing another childrens birthday card, this time made with the Over the Moon stamp set. The background was a watercolour wash of Mint Macaron on the old watwercolour paper, having now used our new Fluid 100 watercolour paper I much prefer this as its blends so much smoother.
I stamped the cow in Memento Tuxedo Black and coloured with Stampin’ Blends before fussy cutting her out. Here’s a little close up of her:
I attached some linen thread around the base of the punched out balloon with Tear N Tape around the back. I then attached the thread to the cow using some more tape rolled into a ball, you could also use a glue dot here but I’m out of them at the moment.
To finish the card stamp Happy Birthday from Perennial Birthday across the bottom of the card in Rich Razzleberry.
Finished result a cute birthday card which I’m sure anyone would love.
Card Base: Half A4 sheet of cardstock measuring 14.9 x 21cm, scored at 10.5cm

Growing up on a farm has meant I have a soft spot for cows so when I saw the new Over the Moon stamp set featuring these adorable little cows I knew they’s be one of the first sets I’d buy. I love how cute the images are and the sentimets just make me smile, especially the one I’ve used here, its perfect for when you just want to write a note to a friend.
I used Granny Apple Green as my main colour for this card and added a touch of Poppy Parade on the cows flower as I wanted a bright, happy spring like card, a total contrast to the wet miserable weather we’ve being having here in the UK recently.
For the background I used the Swirls and Curls Embossing Folder, which you can see better in the first photograph. My cute little cow was coloured with Stampin’ Blends and then mounted on a scalloped oval in Granny Apple Green cut from the Layering Ovals dies.
I added a strip of the GrannyApple Green textured weave ribbon to add more colour but also because I’ve had it a while and never used it!
Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s fun little card using Over the Moon, amust if you like cute critters.

Today I’m sharing a card from the Wonderful Moments stamp set which I’m glad is carrying over as its a great set for creating cards for those special moments for the women in our lives.
I love this image of the bride, although if you changed the colours it could aslo work well as a ballgrown making its suitable from prom cards or twenty-first birthday cards.
I wasn’t sure about the sentiment “For the Bride” at first I mean what about the groom too? But wouldn’t this be a lovely card so send a to a friend or daughter on the morning of her wedding with a few heartfelt words.
I stamped the bride onto the marble effect paper in Petal Promenade DSP and the coloured the bride with Petal Pink, Crumb Cake and Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends. I then fussy cut out the bride image and mounted her behind a frame of Petal Pink cardstock cut from the Rectangle Stitched Dies.
For the backgroudn of the card I ran a layer of Shimmery White cardstock through the Subtle Embossing Folder to add a little bit of texture. To finish the card I added the “For the Bride” sentiment, a little heart cut from the Stitched Labels Dies and some Petal Pink pearls to the bride’s dress form the Artisan Pearls collection.
Hope you enjoyed today’s project and are enjoying your Bank Holiday if you’re in the UK.
Yes its another card with a balloon, I seem to have a bit of an obsession lately with them. Think I’m just sad they’re all retiring but it won’t be long before I have new favourites.
The Bella & Friends stamp set is probably one of the cutest in the current catalogue, along with Pretty Kitty which is also retiring. Simply stamp your favourite cute little dog, colour with Stampin’ Blends and you’ve got a lovely card in minutes.
For the background of this card I used the Garden Trellis Embossing Folder in Mint Macaron which works great with Rich Razzleberry, one of my all time favourite colour combinations.
A simple greeting stamped on a banner from Birthday Banners and you have a finished card.
Hope you’ve all has a lovely Easter weekend and enjoy this gorgoeus Bank Holiday sun.
After making an Anniversary card with the To Have and To Hold stamp set I decided to make a few more using other sets, so today I’m sharing this card made with the Wonderful Romance bundle.
This is part of the Floral Romance Suite which is perfect for all theings romanctic and wedding themed. There are some gorgeous embellishments in this suite but sadly they didn’t make it onto this card but look out for them on a project soon.
I used Lovely Lipstick and Soft Sea Foam as a colour scheme to show these products look gorgeous in any combination, not just those suggested in the suite.
To start the card I stamped and embossed three of the floral bunches on vellum. I then coloured them on the verse side using a mixute of Mossy Meadow with hints of Pineapple Punch for the leaves and Lovely Lipstick and Petal Pink on the flowers.
I used one full bunch of flowers for one side of my card and sections of the other two images I’d stamped on the other side so I ended up with more of the larger flowers. I love that you can cut the images up to create your own arrangements, don’t be afraid to experiment as thats part of the fun
I finished the card off with some Lovely Lipstick Enamel Dots in the centres of the flowers which really bring out the Lovely Lipstick.
I love how versatile this bundle is and think you should definielty consider it for your collection before its gone.
Today I’m sharing a quick and simple anniversary card made with the To Have and To Hold stamp set. I really like the main image in this stamp set, I hope they are as happy as they look.
I coloured the image with Stampin’ Blends in Soft Sea Foam, Flirty Flamingo, Balmuy Blue, Crumb cake, Soft Suede and Petal Pink. Even though I didn’t use Lovley Lipstick in my colouring I think it adds a real “pop” to the card.
To add some interest to the background I added some of those lovely heart clusters from the Forever Lovely stamp set, stamped in Powder Pink to match the background.
If you don’t have a Big Shot you could just create a square frame for the main image making this an even simpler card to make.
