The Stamping Boutique challenge make a card 3x3

Hello there and happy friday. Once again I'm happy to share a card with you using an image from The Stamping Boutique.  This week's challenge over on the blog is to make a card 3x3. So a very small card. I don't usually make cards this small, but they are very cute. A great note card or possibly even a gift tag size.

I used the image Trenton

Congratulations "Fiona & Friends" Ice skates


I had made this card awhile ago and I honestly thought I had posted it but looking back over my posts I didn't see it anywhere so here is it. My mom actually asked me to make this card for my niece Fiona who has been taking skating lessons and has been passing all her levels.  


The image is hand drawn by myself. It's from my "Fiona & Friends" digital images.  At the moment I'm only using them for personal use but we will see what happens in the future.  I've posted a few other cards with other images with the same girl.  These images are actually inspired by my niece Fiona.  I hand drew the image and scanned it into my computer to get the right size and was able to print it out like a digital stamp. Then I coloured it with copic markers cut it out.  I love the embossed background as it looks like swirls made in the ice.

Congratulations/3rd year Japanese school


The next card I'm  going to share with you is one of my favourites I've made in the last this while. My niece Fiona is part Japanese as her mom is Japanese so she's been taking Japanese classes for the last three years and she just finished up her 3rd year of it. So I wanted to make this card to congratulate her and encourage her on all her hard work at learning this language.  I think it's so cool that she's almost 6 and she knows two languages mostly fluently. That's better than me, hehe!


This card features the My Favorite Things Pure Innocence "Japanese Girl" which is colored with copic makers.  The Congratulations and graduation cap are also from My Favorite things "Graduation die-namics" and the embossed background is a cuttlebug embossing folder called "swiss dots." Then I finished it off with some red sequins on the side just to give it that final touch.

I'm raptor round your finger

I am excited to share this next card with you. I made it awhile ago now. But I really love this image. I like dinosaurs and so I thought this image was just too cute. It's a stamp from My Favourite Things.  Also the matching sentiment is just super cute too. 


 I coloured the image with copic markers and the red flags behind the circle are the fishtail stax's from My Favourite things and the circle is also from the circle stax from MFT. 

Butterfly kisses & Dandelion Wishes

Here is another card I've made in the last little while.  I picked up a few more MFT "My Favourite Things" Pure Innocence stamps.  This set is called "Make a wish" and I absolutely love it and all it's cuteness.  



The girl and the sentiment stamp are from the same set. The sentiment is embossed with white embossing power on Vellum using the MFT fishtail stax die.  Just in case you can't read the sentiment as it tends to blend in with the background it says "Butterfly kisses and dandelion wish." The butterfly stamp is one I had in my stash. Both images are coloured with copic makers. The embossed background is the embossing folder dandelion wishes and then I finished it off with some purple twine to match all the colours. 

My World is brighter because of you

Hello, I've got a lot to share with you here on the blog. I'm really feeling behind in taking photos, editing and getting the cards up on the blog.  I have not been crafting too much in the past few weeks only fitting it in when time allows. Some weeks I feel like I get to craft more than others.  Though these last few weeks have been a few of those weeks where not a lot of crafting gets done. But here I am with some cards to share, I hope you like them!


I recently got the MFT lightbulb die-namics and I love it.  So cute! I used this great die to create this card.  The sentiment is a Michael's $1.50 stamp and it worked perfectly. It's embossed with white embossing powder and then the sequins just finish off the card.
