Welcome New Baby Card

Hi All,

I am dropping by today to share a new baby card with you all. This one was for a special friend so it had to be equally as special! I used Papermilldirect card and you can see the list of all I used over on their blog.

I cut out all the elements for my project on my Silhouette. Picking out the card for the baby’s hair and skin was the hardest but this was still possible using the ivory and rich cream card. I then layered all the pinks in combination on the rattle and soother and used the blue and gold for the bottle.

The subtle shimmer from the lustre card is just perfect on this card, and gives the perfect amount of sparkle!


Elegant Birthday Card

I wanted to make a birthday card that was clean and simple but still elegant. I used a colour combination that I have not often used before on this card, and I feel that it really worked.

I mixed patterned paper with Papermilldirect card that complemented it perfectly. You can see full details on the colours used on the Papermilldirect blog. To top this all off I added some green enamel dots. I think it ended up looking very elegant, and the green and buff card combination works very well together!

Unicorn Wall Hanging

Unicorns are everywhere at the moment, and everyone seems to know someone who loves them! I have a good friend who is expecting her first baby, and she wanted to add some ‘rainbow’ themed art on the baby’s nursery wall. So I was inspired to make this unicorn wall hanging for her. I used fabric for the base, and felt for the ears and horn. I then used Papermilldirect Apple card for the leaf and eyes details. You can see more information on the card I used over on the Papermilldirect blog. I covered the eyes with glossy accents to give some extra dimension. After that is was adding lots of coloured ribbon in a loose rainbow theme.

I hope the baby likes it as much as the mommy to be did!!

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

I love when I can make a card that is super clean and simple, and made only from card stock. Papermilldirect card stock colours all work so well together that it makes these types of cards really easy to put together. I used a file from the Silhouette store that you can see below, which is designed to be a tag. I sized it up to be big enough to fit the front of an entire card. I also didn’t use the back side of the tag with the sentiment on it. I cut the file out and pieced it all together onto a card front. I added a sentiment on the bottom of the white tag part and placed the tag onto a panel of red, and then added this panel onto a card base. I love how bold and striking it all looks!

I used the same wreath, without the tag part on a square hammered white card base. I stamped a sentiment in the center of the wreath. The hammered white card on this one is the real star of the show, it really makes the wreath pop.

Head on over to the Papermilldirect blog to see more details on the card used in these projects!

Coloured Ornaments Christmas Card

Hi All,

Stopping by today to share another Christmas card make. This one was made using lots of scrap pieces of card – one of my favourite past times! I love how you can take a mix of Papermilldirect card colours and make a fun card, and all the scraps I used for this one worked so well together. You can see all the info on the card I used over on the Papermilldirect blog here.

I used my Silhouette to cut out the ornament shapes, but you could use dies, or even cut them by hand.

You could make a card like this really fun as you wanted using as many colours as you wanted and mix them in as many ways as you liked. The range of Papermilldirect colours that you can mix together would make this a really fun card!


Sparkling Snowman

Hi All,

I am stopping by to share a fun card that I made for this time of year – a Christmas card. I am going to have a lot of these to share over the next while, so brace yourself! I used old Christmas paper on this one and can’t remember the name, and don’t seem to have the cover of it any more. I am trying to use up full paper pads before buying new supplies, so it is in my stash about 2 years! It worked perfectly with the Papermilldirect dark green and Christmas red card though. These two colours together are just a perfect Christmas card combination for me! You can see more supplies that I used over on the Papermilldirect blog here.

Nicole Snowman Star 1

I added some distress glitter using glossy accents. I ‘drew’ on a line of glossy accents where I wanted the glitter, covered it with glitter, and then tapped off the excess onto a scrap piece of paper. I used this piece of paper to funnel the glitter back into the jar to save as much as possible. This glitter gives a lovely subtle sparkle it gives. It also doesn’t flake off unless you rub really hard which is brilliant! I added this onto the stars too, I left them in their natural colour, just coated them in glossy accents, and added the glitter over the top. I also added glossy accents to the snowman’s carrot nose and the coal he has for eyes/buttons etc. I think this gives a lovely bit of dimension to the card, but still keeps it practical to post. This card came together so easily, especially with the pre-made Papermilldirect card base in the coordinating colours. Christmas card making has never been easier! Have you started your projects yet? Share over on our social media if you have, we love to see! use the #papermilldirect
