Onesie Shaped Card




Oh my gosh, earlier this week The Cutting Cafe brought out 2 adorable shaped cards which I have incorporated into one!  As soon as I saw them, I knew instantly how I wanted to created these cards.

Perfect timing because a friend of mine is about to have her second child and all I need to know is if it's going to be a pink or blue variety!




For the ONESIE SHAPED CARD.... template - cutting file which I cut out on my Pazzles Inspiration I used some very old white Bazzill Dots paper.  I then cut out the trimmings from my all time favourite Gingham Craft Creations paper.


For the elephant embellishment I reduced the size of the elephant from the ELEPHANT SHAPED CARD...template - cutting file with my Pazzles and adhered using foam pads.

I don't know what happened to the colouring of the pearls on the pink shaped card when I photographed it but in real life the pearls DO match the pink gingham.

If you head over to The Cutting Cafe there is a monthly inspiration and you will see some great cards by the Design Team showcasing projects just for the Guys....Father's Day and more.  There is also a chance to WIN ANY 3 SETS from The Cutting Cafe if you leave a comment.  So be inspired by the Design Team and click the link HERE.

Good Luck.

Father's Day Shaped Card


On the 13th June, you should go and check out the MONTHLY INSPIRATION at The Cutting Cafe.  Regina Easter has asked the Design Team to base their monthly inspiration on Manly, Father's Day cards using some specific files.  I must say I did struggle with this as I do like girlie cards.....well don't we all!


With my Pazzles Inspiration I cut out the base of the shaped card using the INTERSTATE SHAPED CARD cutting file which comes from the IT'S ROAD TRIP TIME AGAIN set.  This set includes a huge amount of printable stamps ideal for male cards.

I also used the COLORED DAD WORD BLOCK printable set from The Cutting Cafe for the background which has been printed onto white card.


I couldn't resist a bit of doodling and some buttons from my stash.

That's my male themed card for this year!

I have entered this card into several challenges:-

Surf Board Shaped Card


When I popped into my local papercraft shop (Flutterby Crafts) I saw some packs of folded cards and a card designed by Nicky Hayden which inspired me to make this card.


I have used a number of files from The Cutting Cafe with my Pazzles Inspiration for this SHAPED SURF BOARD CARD so here goes.......


I used the CLOUD BACKGROUND COLORED SET....printable stamp set, added my own seagulls and glitter to the clouds.


I then used the SUN SAND SURF printable stamps set for the text and waves which have been layered onto my folded base card from Flutterby Crafts. The surf boards were cut using KaiserCraft papers from the Candy lane collection with the SURFBOARD SHAPED CARD SET....template - cutting file cut out on my Pazzles.

A cute button, ribbon, pearls and doodling finished off this fun card.......so here in the UK I scream where is the SUN!

I have entered this card into several challenges:-
One Layer Wednesday - Summer Holidays
A Spoonful of Sugar - Here comes summer
Deep Ocean Challenge - Anything Goes
