Super quick birthday card


Hi guys!

My theme this month has been quick and easy, cards that take very little time (as I have very little this month, gearing up to move house and country!)

Right, are you ready?? This is another "buckle up coz it's gonna be fast"card:

Step 1: grab coloured card stock. I went with bright and cheerful yellow. Fold into card size you want.
Step 2: run through die cutting machine with a scalloped frame die, just off the top of the card so it doesn't chop it in half.
Step 3: Stamp one of the gorgeous flower stamps from Kennedy Grace Creations in the middle. I went with Beautiful Bloom-Sweet Rose and stamped it in black to make the contrast as big as possible.
Step 4: Die cut a frame of black (or other colour if you fancy it) card stock and add around the flower to frame it prettily.
Step 5: Add sentiment. I used a die cut word and stamped another one to make it say 'Happy Birthday'. Again, I used black to keep it simple but elegant.
Step 6: Add embellishments if you feel it needs it. I decided against it to challenge myself to make a clean and simple card, something that isn't really my forte.
Step 7: Write your greeting and post it! Done!!



Phew, is anyone else sweaty? I sometimes get so excited about crafting my heart races. Surely that counts as cardio then??

Happy crafting from Erica and see you on the other side in a few weeks!

Heartfelt Thanks

Hello everyone!! It's Berina here today with a Thank you card for you.


This looks like a triple stamping, but I used only 1 panel of colored images. I'll walk you through the steps. I took a piece of white cardstock of size 4 1/8" x 5 3/8" and stamped the sentiment from the Friendship Blessings stamp set in the center and stamped the flowers repeatedly around the sentiment. I colored the images with Copic markers. With a T-ruler and pencil, I drew rectangles where I wanted to cut and used my paper trimmer to cut. I did the same with a black cardstock panel of size 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" and used it to matte all the pieces of image panel. Then I adhered the 3 pieces adhered on to each other with foam tape to give some dimension. I added some Nuvo drops in color English Mustard.


I really love how this has turned out. I hope you will give it a try.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.

Sweet Birthday

Hello everyone! First of all, wishing you all a very happy new year! It's Berina here today, sharing a beautiful and sweet card using the tic tac toe board for January!


I used the diagonal from the board - Die Cut, Embossing and Flowers. I decided to use the Splendid Roses for the flowers. I stamped the floral image using Memento black ink and colored the flowers with Copic markers. I used V09, V17, V15 and V12 for the flowers and G99, YG67, YG63, YG61 and YG03 for the leaves. I loved coloring these flowers. I cut the panel into 4" x 5 1/4". For the sentiment, I decided to go with the "Wishing you a sweet birthday" from the same stamp set. I gold embossed the sentiment and die cut it with a small oval. I colored the edges of the die cut with V15. I took a top folding A2 cardbase and colored the edges of the front with V15. I adhered the image panel on to the card base with glue and attached the sentiment panel with foam tape. I love how this card has turned ou…
