Super quick birthday card


Hi guys!

My theme this month has been quick and easy, cards that take very little time (as I have very little this month, gearing up to move house and country!)

Right, are you ready?? This is another "buckle up coz it's gonna be fast"card:

Step 1: grab coloured card stock. I went with bright and cheerful yellow. Fold into card size you want.
Step 2: run through die cutting machine with a scalloped frame die, just off the top of the card so it doesn't chop it in half.
Step 3: Stamp one of the gorgeous flower stamps from Kennedy Grace Creations in the middle. I went with Beautiful Bloom-Sweet Rose and stamped it in black to make the contrast as big as possible.
Step 4: Die cut a frame of black (or other colour if you fancy it) card stock and add around the flower to frame it prettily.
Step 5: Add sentiment. I used a die cut word and stamped another one to make it say 'Happy Birthday'. Again, I used black to keep it simple but elegant.
Step 6: Add embellishments if you feel it needs it. I decided against it to challenge myself to make a clean and simple card, something that isn't really my forte.
Step 7: Write your greeting and post it! Done!!



Phew, is anyone else sweaty? I sometimes get so excited about crafting my heart races. Surely that counts as cardio then??

Happy crafting from Erica and see you on the other side in a few weeks!

Baby Boy card bonanza!

Hi, Erica here with two cards today!

For the release post I made two baby girl card and only one boy card. Naturally, all my friends have decided to give birth to baby boys recently so that one itty-bitty card was already spoken for. Time to remedy that with another two boy cards and the sweet Sweet Baby Mine stamp set.

I started by cutting two A2 sized pieces of Strathmore Bristol Vellum card stock as I wanted to do an ink blended background for both cards. Using Post-It tape I taped strips across the panel to create a pattern, slightly different on both to keep it interesting. On one I went for blue and the other one got green and yellow. I also splattered more blue ink on the blue one and green ink on the green/yellow one.
















On another piece of Bristol I stamped two baby lions with VersaMark ink and heat embossed them in white embossing powder. These got coloured in with Zig markers and then fussy cut.

On the blue card I also cut out a white frame as well as the words 'A Boy'…
