Hi Everyone.

It was my Niece’s 2 birthday and my Nephew’s birthday this week here’s the cards I made them.

My Niece is mad on Peppa Pig……


I created a cutting file from a free colouring page for my silhouette for Peppa, I was really pleased how it came out, and I also cut her name on the silhouette.


I stuck Peppa to some acetate to support her and added the die cut word “Niece” and number 2 to the balloons.

Maisie absolutely loved it !!!! 😀

Here’s the card I made for my nephew.


It’s a step card. I’ve added some patterned papers and a die cut happy birthday and nephew. Then a few punched stars.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hi Everyone.

Here’s the card I made for my Niece.

DSC04484Again 8×8 in size. I’ve stamped the lacy backgrounds in versamark ink onto white card and embossed them with white embossing powder. I’ve inked all over with distress ink then buffed it to bring out the white. The centre panel has been die cut and mounted using 3d foam pads. The sentiment has been stamped in black using a Lili of the Valley set. I’ve also added some dots of cosmic shimmer pva around the outer edges.

DSC04484The Flowers have been stamped and embossed in white onto blue card, then die cut , these are the Arianna blooms by Heartfelt Creations and some swirls and pearls have also been added.


The bow has also been stamped and embossed in white onto blue card using a Sue Wilson Stamp and then die cut using the corresponding die.

Hi Everyone.

Back again with another of those birthday cards. This was for my friend Rachel.

DSC04479This is 8×8 in size. I’ve embossed a piece of crumb cake card stock with a Sue Wilson embossing folder for the background. Then I’ve added some die cut borders and corners around the edges, the dies are also Sue Wilson.

DSC04480Then for the focal point, I’ve stamped in black a lacy background using a Justrite stamp set called ribbons and swags, then die cut it with a circle die. The happy birthday was also stamped in black, this is a Lili of the Valley stamp set.

DSC04481The bow has been die cut using a Sue Wilson mini bow die and I’ve added a resin daisy to the middle. I’ve also added some pearls around the card.

I’d like to thank you all for your lovely comments. I love to read them.
