Feeling Hot? How About an Ice Cream?

Today I am showcasing a Swap Card I made for my Team Swaps for December (Yes, this is how far behind I am!)

The theme of the Swap was 'Summer'.... Ice Cream was the first thing that popped into my mind when I thought of Summer! So here is a punch art card of Ice Cream! 

I have used the Pennant Punch and the 1 1/4" Scallop Circle Punch to make the Ice Creams, I scored the cones using my Simply Scoring Tool and I have used Summer Smooches DSP (why? - because the theme was Summer, why else! haha).

Until next time
Keep Smiling and happy creating!

'Celebrate' Swap Card


Today I have popped in to show you my card swap for March.  The theme this month for The Artfull Stampers monthly swap is 'CELEBRATE'.  

Here is my take on the theme :)

This card features a few Big Shot elements - I have used the 'Labels Collection' Framelits to cut out some Whisper White Card Stock, which was then embossed using the 'Cloudy Day' Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  The 'Pinwheel' Sizzlet Die was used with the Sale-A-Bration Designer Series Paper 'Sycamore Street' (which is now retired).
The vine pattern was also from the 'Sycamore Street' Designer Series Paper stack aswell.  
Some Mini Silver Brads, Island Indigo Bakers Twine and a simple Happy Birthday from the stamp set 'Wishes Your Way' finished the card off :)
The other 2 colours of card stock used were Pool Party and Crumb Cake :)

If you have any questions, or would like to place an order of any kind, please drop me an email at or shop ONLINE at

Until next time,
Keep Smiling and Happy Crafting!!

Guest Blog - Baby Cards

Good Morning! 

As my last post said, I am a little behind in posting my creations and cute cards that were given to me as parts of swaps. 

Here is a really cute 'Baby' card that was part of a swap from March.

Tami is the creator of this super cute card! I just love how she's used the Easter Stamp Set 'Everybunny' in a different way!

Until Next Time,
Keep smiling and happy creating!
