As Simple As Can Be

Happy Sunday Craft Lovers,

I made another birthday card and this time my theme is As Simple As Can Be. Once again I combined red, white and blue. I seem to like this three colors combination, though I must start using my orange cardstock, they are really starting to pile up.

What are you plans for the weekend? Any craft projects in mind?

Since its already going to be the end of July, I really need to start getting into the christmas card making mood. I got loads of cards to make, If I don't start now I will be ending up buying again like last year.

As Simple As Can Be

For this simple handmade birthday card, I used a red card as base then I layered it with a white card. I used a flower doily border punch from DoCrafts to punch the white colored card. Oh yes once again this is a 5.5" x 5.5" card. Then I used a blue card as the final layer. For the background of my sentiment I die cut a lighter color blue shade card.

For the added touch I stamped two red flowers and die cut using my Spellbinder's Sapphire. I also used some blue embellishment and blue pearls for the four corners and for the center of the two red flowers.

Until my next post which will be of a different theme...continue to Craft With Love.

In The Purple Mood

Hello My Dear Craft Lovers,

I am in the purple mood today after looking at a beautiful purple patterned paper, I said to myself "I must find at least half an hour to craft".

Handmade Purple Birthday Card


Glad that I am not so busy this morning, so had some time to sit at my craft table and craft away. Ended up sitting at my craft table for more than an hour and made two simple square cards. The other card is not purple though. I decided to make another red, white and blue card which I will share with you in my next post.

In the Purple Mood

Besides pink, my second favourite colour is purple. Any shade of purple will definitely soothe my eyes. Even if I am having a crafter block day...Pink and Purple will definitely break that block away. What's your favourite colour that somehow never let you down?

For this birthday card, I used a white card as base and layered it with a purple cardstock. Then I layered that with the lovely pattern paper that I bought sometime back but almost forgot about it. Using the same purple cardstock, I cut a smaller square to higlight my white birthday die cut sentiment.

Then I stamped and hand cut some flowers in three different sizes. Two shades each, a dark purple and a lighter coloured shade. I then layered the flowers to get a lovely double petal kind of shade.

And finally added some embelishment for the center of the flower and at the corner of the card

Well there you go my handmade purple Birthday card with my chosen theme In The Purple Mood for anyone that loves purple.
