Elephant Cards


I found these cute woolly elephants as a free printable over at Papercraft Inspirations. I cut this one out quite large, and mounted him on white card, orange zig zags and orange pearlescent paper.


I also gave him a fluffy little tail using some wool from my oddments jar. (I always keep my ends when crocheting in case I can use them at some point!)


I printed this trio of elephants out too, and mounted them on some beige polka dots, deep maroon card and a white background. I also used glitter gel pens to add a little sparkle to one of the elephants :)

Scooby Doo Cross Stitch


There is a wonderful little charity here in the UK called Post Pals, who send post to seriously ill children and their siblings. Recently, I heard they were looking for crafters to get making cross stitches to try and ensure every child under their care received a cross stitch. I was paired with a young boy who loves Scooby Doo, and so this cross stitch ensued! I painted a wooden hoop to match Scooby Doo's collar, and added some gold ribbon for hanging. The gold on the collar is also in a sparkly thread, just to add that metallic sheen!

Balloon Birthday Card


For this Birthday card I used these free printables from Papercraft Inpsirations. I was really caught by the beautiful balloon paper, so printed it off and mounted it on some pearly paper. I cut out a second layer of the balloons and mounted them using 3D foam, and added strings with Liquid Pearls (not that I've perfected a smooth line yet!) I also cut out the "Happy Birthday" sentiment in glossy white card using my beautiful new Cricut Explore Air 2 - so useful!


I love having decorated envelopes, so cut out some more balloons to attach to the envelope, adding some strings with a silver gel pen. I think envelopes should make people smile :)

Happy Birthday Papercut Card


I was recently gifted a Cricut Explore Air 2, and one of the first things I had to try was this complex Happy Birthday papercut. I cut it out from a dark blue card which has a slight metallic gold sheen, and it worked so well! I mounted it on one of these printable marble papers by TwigsandTwineArt - they make such beautiful backgrounds. This one reminds me a bit of a galaxy. The circle is then mounted with 3D foam tape on to some dark purple card and a white card back, with some Liquid Pearl embellishments.
