Big Birthday Balloon!

Hello everyone, it's Kat here!

I have been doing a little die cutting for this card, using the recently released MFT Birthday boy & girl dies.

As soon as I saw them I thought they'd be great to use for inlaid die cutting; it's such a simple but really effective technique and works with all those lovely big sentiment dies.



I've used the balloon edge die from a blueprints set, which is out of stock right now, but you could easily use a circle die and just cut a little piece for the bottom.


If you would like more pictures and full details on how I created this card (plus a couple of others in different colours!), then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a fabulous day!

Puppy Power

For someone who's usually more of a 'cat person', I couldn't resist these puppies when I saw them and just 'had' to have them!

Happy Hedgehogs

This is one of my favourite MFT stamp sets and for some reason I prefer colouring it using the no-lines stamping style.  I've inked in the sky using a stencil and the sentiment is from the same stamp set.

Furever Friends

Hello everyone, Squirrel here today, with some furriness to share with you.

Now, we all love our friends, but how may of us take the time to tell them we do?  I really enjoy making random friendship cards, those ones for no particular reason but just because, and this super cute stamp set is perfect for that.

Love birds

Hello everyone, it's Kat here!

I sat down to make a new home card with the fabulous Birds of a feather die set from MFT...but this happened instead, so I guess you can say that it's a very versatile set - lol!


Aren't these little birds just the cutest?!

You can choose the position of their wings, and add beaks or legs if you wish (I didn't!) so you can give them whatever style or character you want.


If you would like more pictures and details on how I created these cards, including how I coloured the birds, hearts and leaves, then please do pop over to visit me at Paper Firefly.

Have a wonderful day!

Although I do like doggies, I'm definitely a 'cat' person so this image from Stamping Bella is perfect for me!  The sentiment is also very true in my eyes!

Nerdy

Morning all, Squirrel here again.  Welcome to September!

I have a confession today - I am a Stationery Addict.
I love pencils and pens and pretty notepapers, and I cannot walk into a stationery store and come out of it empty handed, it might only be a packet of standard envelopes but it still makes me happy.

So, when I saw this on the CC Designs new release list, I knew it had my name written all over it, in crayon of course.


And for this colourful little number I have used:


A simple little card but with a lot of impact

Gifts galore!

Hi everyone, it's Kat here!

I loved these mini gift bag dies so much that I couldn't resist trying them out in all sorts of colour combos!


Aren't they just the cutest?!


Does that give away which was my fave colour combo?!
Actually it was a close run thing between this one and the black & white.

Which is your fave?

Bunny Pile Stuffies

I adore most of the Stamping Bella Stuffies including this pair of bunnies.  It's been a while since I inked them up so I'm rectifying that with a clean and simple design, water-coloured and mounted on a Kraft card base.

Animal Parade

Today's card is a scene made by using several stamps from the Mama Elephant Animal Parade stamp set from Dies to Die For.  I've used one of the sentiments from the set for the banner. I used some blue button twine at the top and added some small beads on the ends of the ties.
