A Nice Cuppa - Some more tea cards

You have heard it before I'm sure but there really is always time for tea, especially when you are stamping with the A Nice Cuppa stamp set from the occasional catty at the moment! Pop it together with the Birthday Bouquet DSP you have a nice brew!!

I'm looking forward to having a nice cuppa with my wonderful friend Carli this week as she and her family stay with us this week - YAY!!

Happy Easter - Easter Lamb

Here is the card design I made for my Easter cards this year! So simple and cute with a chick (FREE stamp set with Sale-a-bration at the moment!!) and lamb!

I love the touch of burlap ribbon and the sparkle on the lamb with the glitter brush! Even the children made a few of these and some tags to match too!
Happy Easter to you all,

Sprinkles of Life for children's birthdays!

My nephew turned 3 the other day and I wanted to send him a smile in the mail and thought that the cupcake stamp featured in the amazing Sprinkles of Life set would be just the thing! Add 3 "ready to blow candles" on top of the yummy chocolate icing and you have the perfect little boy card! I'm loving this layout at the moment, so easy and yet so nice. It's amazing how much you can change the look of a card by using different ribbon, or in this case twine! (you may notice I've got "square" looking tape in the corners of my vellum!! GRRR I've been using FAR TOO many mini glue dots and had run out!! Don't worry I've ordered more! SMILE!)
Well that's the last of my run on Sprinkles of Life cupcake cards, I've now been playing HEAPS with some Sale-a-Bration goodies..... Make sure you don't miss out on those with the end of March just around the corner!!

Sprinkles of Life for 40th birthdays!

Did you know that I've been celebrating 40th birthdays lately!?? Turns out that mine is just around the corner (May 25th to be exact!!) and so many of the cards I've been making have had the BIG 40 stamped on them. I always like to work with a theme and so the first thing that comes to mind is to make a card using the recipients fav colour!! Here are two 40th birthday cards I've made with the same layout and look but in different colours using the very versatile Sprinkles of Life stamp set.
 Loving the new glitter brush featured in the Occasional catty page 24!
 The cupcakes are sooo easy to watercolour, 
especially if you stamp the image on the White Shimmer paper.
Then you MUST add some pink sprinkles to finish it off!

I've used some toothpicks for the toppers and added some fun numbers from a retired Project Life kit (which can be purchased in the clearance rack right now!!) I like the look of the vellum in the background which is easily stuck on with some mini glue dots!! Adding a touch of ribbon and the greeting from the set and you have a fun, cute cupcake card ready!!

Sprinkles of Life - cupcake card

I've been using the Sprinkles of Life stamp set HEAPS lately to make a wide range of cards both male and female! Here is the first one I have to show you...
I went with my sisters fav colours and added some of that new yummy gold glitter pen you can buy from the Mini catty right now!
A simple card indeed but with all the right ingredients!

A nice Cuppa - Teapot card

 What a wonderful set this is, the brand new one from the Occassional Mini that it - A nice Cuppa (with co-ordinating framelits in a bundle - YAY!)
This card was made for the lovely Kim! I am sooo enjoying getting my mo-jo back and coming up with lovely cards like this! I liked it that much I demonstrated it at my craft group last week. It's amazing how different each card looked with the wonderful designs in the Birthday Bouquet DSP!
 The greeting I used is a FREEBIE with any $90 purchase! It features a large JUST FOR YOU stamp along with many sweet greetings, like this one!

If you are into cutting little details then the flowers in this paper are a must for adding that sweet embellishments!
