A floral card in a box

Good morning everyone! 
I hope you are well? As I type this, the sun is shining, so this morning I'm sharing a very summery card...

This card has been made for Keiran's Nanna for her birthday today. I haven't made a box card for a while so this was fun to do! I started with an A4 piece of card and scored it along the short edge at 7x7cm, then along the long edge at 7, 14, 21 and 28cm, but just as for as my first scoreline. 

I added 3 strips of card inside the card to hold the flowers, each was 9cm x 1cm and scored at 1cm from eacn end. I used various Stampin' Up! flower and butterfly stamp and punch sets to create this lovely summer display!

I finished with a die cut butterfly from the Butterfly Thinlits and the sentiment from Memorable Moments. The great thing about this style of card is that they can be folded flat for postage...isn't that brilliant?!

I hope you have a lovely day planned....I think we are having a day in Southport :)
See you tomorrow with my DT card for CAS-Colours and Sketches.

Cute baby easel card!

Good morning!
Today I'm going to show you a card I made a while ago for a customer order.

I used the very cute Baby We've Grown set (only available to order until June 1st) for the cute little shoes, and an old, retired set for the two sentiments. I die cut the sentiment panel using one of the Apothecary Accents Framelits, and used Sweet Dreams DSP and some Blushing Bride Chevron Ribbon to make it 'girly'!

To create the stamping on the name, I first die cut the Little Letters and lined them up against a straight line...I used my Grid Paper for this. I then stamped onto the letters, then onto the card panel. I lined up the letters with the base stamping and popped them up on Dimensionals. This was a really subtle way to make the new baby's name the main focus of the card.

What are your plans for today? We don't have any yet, but I'm sure it will involve a day out somewhere!
Have a good one, whatever you're doing!

A little metal...

Hey all!
Have you got a weekend of fun planned for this bank holiday? I am working, sadly, but we are going to Southport for a few days on Monday, which I am very much looking forward to!

I would like to welcome yet another new follower, Deborah to my little blog. She is incredible at should check her cards out!

So today's card has been made for the new challenge over at Less Is's been a long time since I entered on a Saturday morning! The recipe this week is ...

So here is my offering...

I used Work Of Art for this male card (yay a male card!). I masked off the middle section before stamping the long stamp in Sahara Sand, Crumb Cake and Tip Top Taupe, then scored across the panel.

The sentiment is from Remembering Your Birthday and stamped in Crumb Cake. I finished with a Gold Basic Metal Button along with some Linen Thread.

I'm off to work now...I hope you have a lovely weekend!

A notebook for Dad

Good morning!
Today I wanted to show you a notebook I have decorated to add to my Father's Day style gifts at the next craft fair I am doing...

I used the fabby Six Sided Sampler and matching punch, and stamped them in various shades of brown (not grey! ;) )

I cut out the word 'notes' using the Little Letters Thinlits...I lined them up on the card and used the Magnetic Bigshot Platform to keep them in place. 

Keiran is doing a sponsored 2 mile run today for a local charity...I reckon he'll manage it no problem!

Have a lovely Friday!

Kinda colourful!

Hello everyone and thank you for joining me today!
I have my DT card for CAS-Colours and Sketches to show you today, but before I do, let me show you the colours we are working with this week...

I did actually make a card with similar colours earlier this week, not realising they were so close to our challenge! Anyway, here is my DT card...

I have used Kinda Eclectic for my's one of my 'go to' set at the moment. It has everything, don't you think? Butterflies, lovely sentiment, leaves, the sun...

I finished the butterfly by adding a gem that I coloured with a Stampin' Write Marker and set it with some Crystal Effects.

We've had lots of gorgeous entries into last week's sketch challenge...I really think we're going to struggle to pick our favourites this time! We're looking forward to a similar high quality of entries this week!

A sunshiney get well wish.

Good evening!
I know I'm a bit late today, but I didn't get round to crafting last night, so I made today's card this afternoon, especially to enter into a couple of challenges....

 Less Is More, where the theme is 'Hello Sunshine', and Freshly Made Sketches....

Here's my sunny card...

I have used Kinda Eclectic again (getting my money's worth!) and stamped the 'sunburst' onto the shaped panel (from Chalk Talk Framelits), then lined it up and stamped onto my card too. I added some Crushed Curry Stitched Satin Ribbon across the panel and mounted it onto the new Delightful Dijon card blank. The shaped panel was popped up on Dimensionals.

I then added a pair of butterflies stamped in Rich Razzleberry onto Vellum, with a sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes, also stamped on Vellum. The card is finished with some Candy Dots from the Brights collection. 

I have some TV to catch up on tonight, so I'll go now and catch up with you tomorrow with my DT card for CAS-Colours and Sketches.

Petals, flourishes and butterflies!

Good morning!
Before I show you today's card, I would like to welcome my newest follower, Anna! I hope you enjoy my little blog!

So today's card was actually made weeks ago, I just haven't blogged it yet!

I have used Bermuda Bay and Hello Honey on my card...2 colours I think go very well together! The flower is from Petal Potpourri and I punched it with the matching punch.

The swirl is from Flowering Flourishes and the butterfly from Butterfly Basics. The sentiment is from Petite Pairs and I coloured it using my Stampin' Write Markers.

If you would like to order any of the products I have used today, please use the link to my online shop over there on the right>>>

Over this week I hope to show you some of the fabulous swaps I got this weekend in much wonderful inspiration!

Bye for today...hope you have a good one!
