Boys Birthday Cards - Kaszazz Boys Toys


These boys card have been created using Kaszazz Boys Toys, Frame, and Happy Birthday stamp sets.

All cards have a white base card, blue mount card, and use Early Years papers. The sentiment has been stamped directly on to the patterned paper. Archival ink is used.

Brads, ribbon, buttons and twine are used to embellish.

All cards have a stamped insert, and I have die cut numbers which can be added to  the card front to create an age birthday card.

Inspiration for those birthday cards for the little boys in your life.

Till next time
Create happy

Chipboards from my stash ...


We are sharing with you today a selection of cards created using various brands of Chipboards and wooden shapes from my stash...

I have left some of the chipboards / wooden shapes natural and have painted the others using acrylic paints and metallic paints.

These amazing seagulls were Dusty Attic Chipboards...

I have also added rhinestones, pearls, googly eyes and ribbon for added extra touches.
Heading back to my craft room to create more cards using goodies in my stash.

Thanks for visiting,

Mini Album - Retro Dude


Another mini album, created with items from my stash. This time, one for the guys. To the original paper pack I have added the paper used for the front and back covers, and the card used for the tags.

Lots of pockets and tags create plenty of space for photos and notes.

Washi tape, brads, and glossy accents were used for highlights.

I feel sure we all know someone who would suit this album.

Keep happy creating
Till next time

Heartfelt Cards - Kaszazz


These cards feature the beautiful Heartfelt papers from Kaszazz.

This card is covered with one of the papers, mounted on to Butterscotch card and on to a white base. The heart of gold sentiment strip has been cut from another of the papers and matted, and the thank you sentiment is stamped from Mini messages set on to a piece of the background patterned paper, and also mounted on to card. This then has a heart clip, tied with ribbon slipped on. One end of each sentiment strip is cut into a banner shape, and both are attached to the main panel.
Sections of the design have been highlighted with gold sequins. The insert is stamped with Cherry blossom.

This square card has the same background paper. A strip of the second paper has been cut into three pieces and mounted on pink card. These have then been centred on to the card base. A birdcage was die cut from card, painted with distress metallic stain, and added on top. An antique brad, a metal flower, and paper flowers and leaves, coloured with alcohol markers were then added. A sentiment was stamped and matted, then added along with a bow and several pearls. An insert was added.

This card has panels of both papers, and is matted on to blue card. The thank you sentiment is from Watercolour wreath set, and is stamped on to the background. The chipboard butterfly has been coloured with markers, rubbed over with stickles and coated in glossy accents. Stickles has been added to the coloured paper flower and leaves. Pearls have again been added.

Don't be afraid to cut up those beautiful papers (I am sometimes guilty). Use them to create some gorgeous cards.

Till next time - happy creating
