MFT Blueprints 6 Holiday Tags

Today I wanted to share some Christmas gift tags which I have been inspired to create using the MFT Tag Builder Blueprints 6 die set. I have entered these on the MFT Creative Construction with Blueprints-Holiday Tags Challenge. 

The timing of this challenge is just perfect for me because my Christmas greeting cards are all complete and now it’s time to create Christmas gift tags ready for wrapping gifts and placing them under the tree. My Christmas tree colours are always white, silver and aqua- gorgeous Queensland tropical coastal colours so the gift wrapping is also colour coordinated.




I had so much fun creating these shaker tags.

Supplies used:-
MFT Tag Builder Blueprints 6
Stamps: MFT Bitty Bears, Merry Everything, Happy Pawlidays and Jingle all the Way
Inks: Tim Holtz Distress Oxide Broken China
Other: Copic Markers, white glitter card, sequin mix, metallic bakers twine.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope that your week is wonderful.


Welcome Baby Grandson Shaker Card

I was inspired by the Just Add Ink #343 Blog Hop Pop-Up & Interactive card challenge to create a cute baby card for a dear friend who has just become a first time grandmother to a beautiful grandson. I do just love being able to create special cards for special people in my life. Here’s what I created with a glossy accents dimensional rocking horse as a centrepiece.


Materials used:

Stamps: Personal Impressions Big Sentiments, Penny Black Word Express, Kaisercraft stitched circles, Rocking Horse stamp, source unknown, Altenew tiny hearts background.
Inks: Altenew Caribbean sky (heart background), ocean waves (welcome baby), black memento
Dies: stitched rectangle, stitched circle, stitched borders, lawn fawn
Other: assorted sequins and confetti for shaker. Sprinkle berries 3mm blue for embellishments, white card, Polychromos pencils to colour rocking horse, glossy accents to coat fussy cut horse.

Thank you so much for stopping by.


Cozy Smooches

I was inspired to create a card for the Paper Smooches January 2017 Challenge, with the theme of “Cozy”. Funnily enough, cozy warm is not how I want to feel in the height of a Queensland summer, however “cozy together” seemed to be a cooler way to go.


Here’s what I created using Paper Smooches Chubby Chums snuggling up to a shaker nest frame.


The soft watercolour background, banners and stitched wire fence papers were created using Gelato’s.

Supplies used:
Stamps: Paper Smooches Chubby Chums, Sugar Pea Funky Wreath, Hero Arts Congrats, Alphabet set
Gelato’s: Metallic Melon, Lime, Lemon
Dies: Lawn Fawn Stitched border, Stitched circle
Inks: Memento Paris Dusk
Other: Copic markers, watercolour paper, Neenah Solar White card, washi tape, google eyes, assorted sequins.

I had fun and thanks for stopping by.
