‘Best Birthday Balloons…’

Libbys bday balloons

Thursday again – can you believe it?!!  I hope your week has been a good one so far and you’re now looking forward to the impending weekend!

Today’s card is one that I made for my Son to give to his big Sis for her birthday last month.  I used these super sweet stamps and matching dies from Clearly Besotted called Best Birthday – aren’t they the cutest little balloons 🙂  In this set you get 4 animals – I’ve missed out the panda on this card – and also a good selection of sentiments. There are  2 stamps that can be used as the ‘string’ to attach to the balloon although I used some twine here. Libby loved card this especially as there was a piggy on it!

I have also used: DP – Craft Asylum ‘Candy’, Spellbinders Circle and Banner Dies, twine, ribbon, sequins and Spectrum Noirs.

That’s all from me for this week.  I hope you have a great weekend, thanks for stopping by.  Take care – Karen 🙂


‘With Sprinkles’



Hi there!  Happy Friday to you all 🙂  I’m just popping in today with this ‘sweet’ card that I made a few weeks ago using a now discontinued stamp and  die set from Clearly Besotted Stamps called With Sprinkles On.  I also used LOTS of Glossy Accents, Stickles, various Memento inks and the spotty background paper is by Craft Asylum called ‘Candy’.

Hope you like it – makes a change from all of the Christmas cards that I have been making lately 🙂  I hope you have a great weekend. Thanks for stopping by today,  take care – Karen 🙂


‘Best Christmas’…

Best Christmas

Hi there crafty people, so how’s your week been?  Well, it’s Friday again – how quickly is time whizzing by now!  Today I’m sharing some more Christmas cards – yes I know they seem to be on every post at the mo, but after I’ve finished mine I then have to start on the one’s that my Mum wants and Sister!  I hope they haven’t got a huge list this year!!! Anyway, how could anyone resist these cute little characters?!  These stamps are from a set called Best Christmas from Clearly Besotted. They are little balloons that you can also snip the little tie off at the bottom so that they don’t look like a balloon!   I have made these for my children’s teachers and teaching assistants – aren’t they sweet?!  I’m not sure if you can really see Rudolph’s nose but it’s very shiny thanks to some Glossy Accents!

I used papers by Papermania Capsule Collection – Festive Spots and Stripes, Spellbinders circle and tag die, Sizzix Scalloped Border Die, Memory Box Stitched Rectangle Die, twine, ribbon, sequins and Glossy Accents.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great weekend – take care, Karen 🙂
