christening day

  • LOTV: baby christening
  • SU!: inspired events
  • First edition papers ‘blank canvas’
  • Memento ‘tuxedo black’ ink pad
  • Neenah classic crest cardstock
  • Copics: R01,32. RV42. YR30. B41. BG70. YG93. E30,35,53,55,57. W00,1,3.
  • Sakura jelly roll ‘clear star’ glitter pen
  • Pink ribbon. 
To make this card, I cut a 5” square mat and stamped my image and sentiments in place. I coloured my image using copics, then added details to the sentiment and flowers using a glitter pen. 
I wrapped ribbon around the top of the panel and tied the ribbon into a bow. I then layered this panel onto a piece of pink paper.
I used the pink paper to cover the front of my 7” square card blank before adding a mat of cream patterned paper. I used foam tape to attach the finished panel to the centre of the card.
I think this is a nice christening card... it uses quite a traditional image, made clean and fresh by using the coral and keeping the design simple.

Sweet floral sixteen.


This lovely card was really simple to make. I used the hunkydory especially for her 'a gift for you' topper and cardstock set. I added a 16th birthday sentiment from an essential book of sentiments, and a bit of co ordinating ribbon. To make the inside a little bit special, I used a matching insert and stamped with a sentiment.

 To make this card I simply stamped the large butterfly image onto the kraft cardstock and coloured using copics. I added a black foiled message cut into a banner shape, to complete the card.

Flying with friends

  • Mama elephant-flying with friends (stamps and dies)
  • Stampin up!- big news
  • Mama elephant- framed tags Madison Avenue 
  • Mama elephant- stitched cloud die
  • Tim holtz distress ink- worn lipstick, shaded lilac
  • Memento ink- tuxedo black
  • Archival ink pad-jet black
  • Copics- W00,1,3.Roo. E31,55. RV10. R81,83. C0. 0.
  • Wink of Stella clear brush marker
  • White copic friendly card stock & White card stock.
Die cut the frame and the cloud shape twice from a piece of white card stock. Stamp the greeting on to one cloud and tape it to the bottom of the frame. Create the sky background using the other cloud shape as a mask. Use the lilac ink pad and a blending tool along the top edge of the cloud, fading the colour away from the cloud edge. Move further down and off set the cloud then add the ink again. Repeat til you have a full sky. Make card blank and use pink ink pad and blending tool to colour the front. Glue the sky panel and frame central on to the card front.
Stamp, colour and die cut the little images. Use the sparkle pen to add shimmer to the balloon. Attach these to the card using foam for dimension.

For this card I also added a sentiment into the inside. I coloured the larger letters with pink then sparkle on top.
Overall a cute new baby card that’s a little bit different to what I normal create.

Memento ink pad- tuxedo black 

Copic friendly card stock. Lilac Pearl card blank. 

I stamped my image and sentiment on to a piece of card stock, which had been trimmed to fit my card front  leaving a small border. I coloured the image, then glued it on to the card blank. This makes a really simple card, that really lets the colouring be the main focus of the card. The Pearl card stock adds a nice shimmer to frame the image. The birthday sentiment could easily be changed to a thank you too.
