A Little Gift

Good Evening Everyone


It has been such a busy weekend making many more cards and crafts for you to view. This is something a little different to the cards I usually make, it is a cute little candle gift box. The box it's self is a beautiful purple and on the lid I have used this magical unicorn paper. Due to this size of this box it is perfect for holding 4 little candle tealights, I have placed some which are a beautiful purple to match the box. It is a nice little gift, beautifully wrapped which makes it all the more special.

21

Good Evening! 

I love making birthday cards but today I made an age birthday card! The big 21! This card is amazing and full of layers to give it that 3D effect. You can see the card is stacked together to give a frame effect with different layers, then attached to each layer is a different decoration. I love the plain white background with the bright shimmering gold decorations, it’s really makes them stand out from the simple backdrop. 21 is a big birthday and this is a bag card to go alone with it, it doesn’t disappoint. If you have any special birthdays coming up soon and need a card as amazing as this one then make sure you contact me!

Just For You

Good Evening All

Today I have made a beautiful card which is perfect to give to someone special. Starting with the wood effect background, which looks like the rings within trees. The next layer has 3 wood effect effect panels which lay on the background of the card. Wood, trees and nature are a strong theme in this card. Finally in a circle in the centre there is a beautiful tree and blue flower, with the text 'just for you'. I really love this card and I know who ever receives it will love it also. If you would like a card like this for someone you know please make sure you contact me!

Hello

Good Evening All,

Isn’t this the sweetest little card? Perfect for almost any occasion. I love the different textures and patterns on the vases and how the colour of the flowers match with the vases. There are a few different boarders around this card also, giving it a frame effect. I used a lot of deep red colours in this card, with hints of gold, pink and green. I loved making this one!

Good Morning Everyone

I have been making more Christmas cards as Christmas is just over 3 months away! Getting all the cards ready for the festive season. The colour theme in this card mainly consists of green and gold, very festive colours that work well together. I have used beautiful patterned paper in this card which all match the Christmas theme. The main focus of this card is the circle in the middle which contains a gold reindeer stamp but lovely curly antlers. Around this there is text which says 'Peace, Joy, Hope, Love, Cheer, Giving'. Make sure you get ordering your Christmas cards now before it's too late, if you love any of my designs or have some ideas of your own then make sure you contact me!

Hello

Good Evening! 

I love using lots of different patterns and this card definitely has a few! Kept it simple with the colours by only using blue and white on the card but put in lots of different patterns to look at. Ranging from flowers to spots, I love how each square gives you something different. In the corner of the card is a circle which says ‘hello’ making this a lovely card for almost any occasion.

Today Is All About You

Hello Everyone

I love this card, full of flowers! This card is best suited for birthdays with the text ‘today is all about you’. It has two different types of floral pattern paper and then a flower stuck on top to finish it off nicely. The first layer of paper is so colourful? The yellow flowers stand out the most but you can see hints of blue and pink also. The second layer is full of vines and leaves, with more earthy colours standing out. Together they contrast well and make the card look beautiful.

Just Married

Good Morning Everyone

What a lovely card to start off this good morning!
I think this card is beautiful and there is so much attention to detail, this was inspired by a Pinterest post. For the background I used white rose pattern paper, which is perfect for the theme of the card, and there is a black boarder around the edge of the card with a black gem in each corner. For the centre of the card I cut out two love hearts embossed the white card for the weeding dress theme and made to look like one is a suit. I die cut the 'Just Married' and I love the font which joins the text with two little love hearts. It is a beautiful card that was a pleasure to make.

Friends Are The Best Gifts

Afternoon!

I've been busy making more cards today and here is one of them. Everyone has some friends which are so special to them, I know I do, so I have made the perfect card to give to them. I am in love with the pink I used in this card as it is a beautiful colour. I used floral and wave patterns in the background of this card as well as a beautiful pink flower in the centre frame. The green lines add a bit of contrast to the colour, I think the green and pink work really well together. I like the variety of the fonts in the text and it is true that friends are the best gifts of all! Get this card and give it to your friends, as I am sure they will love it.

My First Vinyl Cut!

Good Evening Everyone 

Look at this, my first vinyl cut! I really enjoyed this and it is something I would like to do more often. I decided to just stick with cutting out the names to begin with and I used a Disney style font, which I think looks amazing. Keep your eyes out for more vinyl  posts in the future. It is quite addictive LOL If you are interested in wanting to get any items made,  make sure you get in touch through the contact me page! Leave me a comment, I’d love to hear some feedback.

You Light Up My Life

Good Evening All

Today’s card is a lovely one! I made it with a gorgeous tartan pattern background which is full of yellows, greens and blues. Theses colours blend so well together and match perfectly with the flower pattern paper on my next layer. Within the white rectangle there is a cute mason jar stamp with little drangonflies inside, glowing bright with the phrase ‘you light up my life’. I added a blue band round the card and finally some string on the jar lid. I really enjoyed making this card and I love colour theme.

Leaf Gift Box

Good Afternoon Everyone,

Following on from my post yesterday I have created this lovely little gift box using the same leaf design as yesterdays card. In the centre of the leaf there are multiple smaller leaves with metallic and glitter details, I think it is so beautiful to look at! The box itself is quite simple so it doesn't draw away any attention from leaves on the lid, the base of the box is a deep brown colour and the lid is red. These two colours together are quite rustic which match perfectly with the twine ribbon and bow around the box. It is perfect to hold little gifts which can be given along with a card. I make these gift boxes so special so they can be kept and use for other purposes, they can be so much more than just a gift box!

Hello Autumn

Good Afternoon

Today I have made this beautiful shaker card to celebrate the start of Autumn. I love the deep purple used in this card, it is such a beautiful colour. I found a ribbon in a matching purple which you can see runs through the centre of the card. I used a gold glitter colour to make sure 'hello autumn' shimmered in the light and used a similar gold metallic colour for the boarder around the leaf. The inside of the leaf is full of different sequins, most of the sequins I used are shades of green which I think really contrast well with the purple. Its great to shake the card and watch them all shimmer and sparkle.

Gift Bags

Good Afternoon

Today I’ve made something a bit different to the cards I have been posting recently. It’s an adorable pink bag, perfect for little gifts and accessories! I think it’s nice touch to make a unique gift bag that can be kept as a decoration or used for another purpose. I love the bright pink as it really stands out and the gold metallic bow shines in the light. Make sure you give your gift in style with this bag!

Baby, It's Cold Outside

Good Evening!

Look at this beautiful Christmas card which I can’t wait to give to someone! It has the cutest polar bear wearing an adorable gold star sweater and hat. To make sure the card flows I’ve added the same gold stars in the white space around the polar bear, as well as using the same dark blue on the boarders and ribbon. In the bottom corner it says ‘baby it’s cold outside’ to add to the winter theme. It may only be September but cards like this get you in the mood for Christmas.

Hello Friend

Hello Friends

How gorgeous is this? Making this card was so fun. It has quite a rustic feel to it, with the darker colours and twine bow across the top. I love the ombre effect within the text 'hello friend' fading from orange to red, and you can see these colours are used in different parts of this card. I'd be so happy to give this to my friends and I know they would love to receive it.

I Love You And Coffee

Good Evening

This is a cute little card I made recently, quite simple but it works so well. It says I love you and coffee because I know I love coffee! This is written within a love heart of the centre of the coffee cup, with some little love hearts dotted around the paper. You can see just see the leaves on the coffee cup which adds a little more detail and then I finished it off with a nice red bow!

Hello Dear

Good Evening

How gorgeous is this card? I loved making it. As we are now in the autumn season I used an autumn theme. I used a lot of colours associated with the outdoors and autumn such as; yellows, oranges and browns. Inside the centre circle I continued this theme with leaves, branches and pine cones stamped around the silhouette of a deer. Stags and deer decor is very popular and I love how it works so well within this card.
