A Birthday Wreath

Anyone in for a birthday wreath? Yes? Then, you are on the right page today as I would like to show you one of my latest cards. I know it’s been a not so consistent writing over here, but health takes the first place over anything else.


imgn0465So, this card features one of my all time favourite brands: My Favorite Things. I just love the high quality of their products! Don’t you? They give you a lot of room to create with and that’s what I love about! Well, I used a new set to me, called ‘Spring Wreath’ and stamped the wreath towards the center of a piece of white card. Then, I started adding one by one the various flowers and leaves that are part of the stamp set, using an assortment of colours. I wanted a joyful card for my precious niece. Since she turned 5, it went without saying that I stamped that right in the middle of the wreath.


imgn0474And being a birthday card, too, there is a greeting sentiment from the same stamp set. To add a bit of a shine, I wrapped some thin gold twine and tied that into a bow just about the top of the front cover. After that I taped it onto a top folded red card base. And ready it was! Hope you like it.

The inks I used are all coming from the same brand as the stamp set: Brick Red, Olive, Biscotti, Blue Breeze, Pink Lemonade, Periwinkle and Black Licorice.

Have a lovely weekend,

Vintage Bloomers

Bloomers. Shades of pink. Twine. Sentiments in dark red. And a nice layout to match them all. A birthday card that travelled, again, far away, to the North.


This time, I have also experienced with different backgrounds for the photos. Hope you like it.

A delicate birthday card

Winter is one of the busiest and happiest seasons in the year! A lot of gifts, a lot of greetings, family, friends and between Christmas and New Year some important birthdays to celebrate too!

Here’s a card I made for one of these birthdays. The themes I chose for them are flowers and pink. I used different materials  such lace, string, twine and paper in various textures and shades.

The birthday card travelled to the North and reached the heart of a great person.

June 19th – One of My Favourite Birthday Cards

Recipe for this birthday card: take a lot of passion and put it to work. Add some cool – coloured cards, cut some strips of patterned paper, turn two of them into fans by folding them, add a button and a gem, type and trim a birthday wish. And then, start mixing all into a one of a kind card.

Happy birthday! May you have a wonderful time today and all your life!

Sara’s Drawing. Green.

When Sara drew the picture I thought I’d keep it on my fridge next to all the nice things I love. And then, I changed my mind and turned the drawing into something more memorable: a birthday gift.

All I needed was there. I just had to add some string to match the green in the drawing, some coloured cards and a frame. They blended nicely into a drawing frame to keep close to your soul and your heart.

The most memorable moment was when Sara kept the ready made frame in her arms with a radiant smile that warms any heart on earth.
