Happy Birthday

Hi everyone! Happy Hump Day! Today is my post day on the Simply Crafty SVGs Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you, an adorable birthday wagon full of posies, created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Wagon of Flowers Box Card cut file. Super cute and loads of fun!

Sandy created this as a box card which folds flat for mailing, however, I took it one step further and made it into a fixed piece of decor for a mantle or shelf. ;) I love how this turned out! I do apologize for how the ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment photographed in this pic – foil is so darn hard to photograph!

Here’s a shot of the back of the wagon which features a plain panel for writing a custom message and signature.

I used a gold foil sentiment sticker rather than stamping on this one, and it could be used for just about any occasion. I think is this one of my favorite cut files so far and I have several favorites… lots of fun picking out the bright colors and putting this together! ;)

OH BABY! Card Set (4)

Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you have a great week coming up! This month’s Anything Goes with Dies Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you today!


I created an adorable set of four baby welcoming cards using a super cute baby onesie die set complete with different elements to go on front of the onesies. I cut multiples of each element and layered them together for dimension, then colored them with alcohol markers and sparkle overlay marker. Each card features a stitched patterned rectangle die cut and a stitched pearlized oval die cut in a different color, and a few tiny white flat-back pearls. The card bases and front and inside sentiments are the same on each card.

Thinking of You note card

Hello, my crafty friends! Hope you had a great weekend! A new challenge launched over at UnstampaBelles last Monday and today is my showcase day on the blog! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for Challenge #93 Time for Recess! The twist this month is ‘Luscious Layers.’ The twist is not mandatory to play but we’d love to see your creativity and it will put you in the running for DT Favorite! And there’s a prize in the mix… a $15 (AU) gift voucher… so let’s see what you got!

I created the most adorable ‘thinking of you’ note card featuring a gingerbread man (with a hand-drawn mouth) peeking out of a circular opening on the front of the card. So flippin’ cute! ;)

2019_0601005a

I chose three coordinating papers and two circle punches to create my background. I popped the main portion of the background up on foam and adhered a thin strip of a different paper down the right side. I punched several 2-1/4″ circles from cardstock, then put the negative pieces into a 2-1/2″ and punched 1/4″ rims which I layered around the circular opening. This created a recessed opening. I placed the third piece of patterned paper behind the opening and tucked in a sweet little gingerbread man. I adhered the sentiment under the aperture to finish the front.

2019_0601006a

I decorated the inside with some leftover pieces of paper and a strip of cardstock used on the front, leaving plenty of room to write a custom message.

2019_0601007a

One more look… this is just so stinkin’ cute! Love how it turned out!

Under the Sea

Hi everyone! Hope you’ve had a good week! This month’s ATC Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers! I’m super excited to share my DT inspiration project with you today! The theme for our September ATC Challenge is Ocean/Sea and we’d love to see what you create for our challenge this month!

I created an ATC base with thick white cardstock, punched the corners with a ticket corner punch, and spritzed just a hint of blue india ink and Perfect Pearls in a mister onto a sea waves stencil.

2019_0811004a

While the background was drying, I stamped all the images, colored them, and die cut them. I stamped the sentiment and arranged my underwater scene. ;)

One more look… I absolutely love how this turned out! What an adorable scene!

Celebrate Gift Box

Hi everyone! Happy first Tuesday of September… we are rolling right through the year and that much closer to Christmas, lol! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Stinkin’ Inkers and I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project for our Fancy Folds challenge! We’d love to see your project this month featuring a fun fold! I created a pretty gift box with coordinating bow using my We R Memory Keepers 1-2-3 Punch Board. It has a tiny round magnet closure.

Here’s a shot of the set of 10 pretty notelets contained in the gift box. They are 3-1/2″ x 3-1/2″ in size, and feature a snip of matching paper and gold foil ‘Congratulations’ sentiment on each, hence the ‘Celebrate’ sentiment on the outside of the box. I thought this would be a fun and practical gift to give someone that they could actually use. How many times do we need a quick congrats card to go with a gift to commemorate a wedding, anniversary, engagement, new home, new baby, new job or promotion?!

And one final look at the set. Oh, and the envelopes were also created with this punch board! ;)

great things take time

Hi everyone! Happy Sunday – hope you are kick-starting your week with some good crafting! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Craft Challenge Blog and I’m super stoked to share my DT inspiration project for LTCCB #38 – September Anything Goes! I created an awesome encouragement card using a clock background that I had out for another project a few weeks back. Can you tell I love this stamp?!

Leslie

This was a super easy card. I stamped the background on kraft paper, trimmed it, and layered it on black cardstock. I added some very thin strips of black cardstock across the top and bottom, which I allowed to extend out into the right and left margins for a little interest. I layered the panel again on kraft paper and adhered it to a black card base. The front and inside sentiments are Tim Holtz sentiment stickers.

2019_07260013a

I embellished the inside kraft paper panel with leftover strips of black cardstock, and affixed a Tim Holtz sentiment sticker.

2019_07260014a

One more look… I’m so smitten! This would be a great design to mass produce for a set of cards to give as a gift. Hmmmm…

Clutch with 6 Notelets

Hi everyone! We are busting through the months… it’s September 1st already! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #29 – Anything Goes + 3-D Project! Remember, all of our challenges are ‘anything goes’ and we offer a different technique twist each month for inspiration but the twist is not required to play! This month the twist is to create a 3-D project – which could be something like jewelry, gift box, canvas, gift bag, home decor, etc. I created a clutch containing a set of six notelets.

Leslie

I created the clutch with a sheet of double-sided 12×12 paper. I got my inspiration from a tutorial in a recent Splitcoast Stampers newsletter HERE. I added a hot pink ‘hello’ die cut, some tiny flat-back pearls and a layered sticker over the closure. Then I created a set of six notelets featuring a hot pink ‘hello’ die cut, tiny flat-back pearls, a wide strip of the floral paper and a narrow strip of the hoy pink cardstock. I included A1 sized envelopes that I ordered from Amazon.

2019_07200014a

One more look – a close-up of the closed clutch. LOVE how this turned out! What fun!
