Here’s a collection of cards I created using my custom made candle stamp. I’ve found that it’s a really useful stamp to have as it can be used to quickly create simple birthday card designs. Also it I think it works really well with coloured stars made with a star shaped punch.

A cute little card I made to give to my Sister when she moved house. On the theme of “Home is where the Heart is” I used Emma Bridgewater heart paper and cut out a simple house placed on top of it. I tiled the roof with hearts cut using a heart punch and used some silver alphabet stickers for the lettering.
For Girls: These simple cards were made with stamps with stamps for the lettering and some pretty Japanese washi paper. The hearts were cut with a heart shaped punch.
For Boys (or girls): I made these simple cards for some guys (always more difficult to make for I find). I made them with stamping for the lettering and a simple corner cut out design.
The other one I made with my corner punch tool (for the rounded edges) and some transfer lettering.
I’ve been to lots of weddings over the last few years so lots of cards to make. Here are s a few of simple designs I made with my stamps and heart punches.
An acceptance card for a wedding.
These cards were for the happy couple on their big day.
And finally a card I sent for my friends 1st anniversary. A string of hearts.
This years Mother’s Day card for my wonderful Mum. Made with gel stamps from paperchase, flower punch and lots of love. I stamped the lettering onto a yellow piece of card which I rounded using my corner punch. I was going to stick it onto the green card lined up straight but accidentally knocked it. It ended up at an angle and I decided it looked much nicer like that so I stuck it on tilted as you can see. An accidental design which I think turned out very pleasing. And my Mum liked it too.
It was my birthday this month and my family know me well. I got a good stock of crafting gifts. Some new gel stamps, a card puncher in the shape of a flower and a button factory which I’m very excited to make use of in my crafts. Also I got a ‘Raffy’ vinyl toy. These are fun do-It-yourself toys by kid robot. The sharpie pens are great for decorating them and theres a whole community out there doing it.
