Cute cat card

First of all, excuse the photography- it has a bag over it and so caused a reflection! This card was created with kaszazz card stock and ribbon, as well as the word stamp. The cute cat stamp was actually a free stamp with a magazine! It's a really cute set. I'm shocking at remembering names of dies and embossing folders, so I really can't remember that frame die- I think it could be a marianne D die??
This card is one of those that can be adapted into various colours and still have good appeal. If you wanted to make it more of a boy card, you would just need to have a straight ribbon (no bow) and obviously boy colours. The frame die could just be replaced with something a little more straight or a wooden look frame. I love taking a card that I love and adapting it , so why don't you give it a go, it's really fun!
Hope your Easter weekend is full of creativity and maybe a little chocolate!
Take care

Just for you..


I created this card on Kaszazz cardstock. The stamp is from La la land crafts - Dress up Marci. I coloured it in using tria markers. The stamp , ribbon and embellishment is also from Kaszazz. I put some highlights onto Marci's beads and flower using glossy accents.
I love the La la land crafts stamps, they are so filled with character- I think I need to increase my supply of these!!
Have a happy day!

Wings of a butterfly card

I've had lots of fun today creating! I love it when an idea inspires you from a magazine, and then you take it and make it your own. The stamps I used are Kaszazz rose and vine set - I just used the small vine and restamped it. I also used a stampin up butterfly from the set Papillion potpouri, as well as the matching punch for the butterfly. The words stamp is from Kaszazz and the embossing folder is a cuttlebug one- do not know the name, sorry.
To colour in the vines and butterflies, I used letraset Tria markers. I find these markers can actually be used on ordinary cardstock as well as speciality paper, so it makes them more flexible. The base card is Kaszazz ivory stock and the embossed vine piece is stuck flat with the other things, butterflies and words mounted for some height.
I have made quite a few today, so I'll pop some more up over the next few days.
 Until then, be inspired
 Take care

Fairy Moon card

I love fairies and angels- so I really enjoyed putting this card together.The base card is ivory. The background has got to be one of the easiest backgrounds to do. I used the Kaszazz masking tape and just layered various designs across and cut it off. Easy. You can leave a gap in the design and stamp a small happy birthday repeatedly to also add to the effect.
I then stamped this gorgeous fairy stamp- the name of it eludes me- so if you know, please let me know so I can acknowledge the creator. I coloured it using tria markers- which I love. I then cut out a circle and did a light blend of gray and purple on the moon for effect.
Quite a simple card really, but really enjoyable to make.
Happy crafting.x
