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, a pretty gift box created with the Simply Crafty SVGs Wide Gable Box cut file. This was an absolute joy to put together! I just love Sandy’s cut files – she does all the work… all you have to do is cut and put together!
I used a nice heavy kraft cardstock, some pretty floral patterned paper, die cut alphabet letters (from a cut file that came standard on the Scan N Cut) colored with sparkle overlay marker, a couple butterflies and some Crystal Drops. Not a long list of supplies at all!
Another couple shots showing the front and back. Love how this turned out – what an amazing gift box!

Hi everyone! Hope you have a great week coming up! It’s Monday the 11th already in Brisbane and this month’s ATC Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers! I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project with you today! The theme for our February ATC Challenge is Stencils and we’d love to see what you create for our challenge this month!
I created my ATC for this challenge from Chalkboard cardstock. I’ve had this in my stash for a couple years, actually, and this is the first time I’ve used it. Don’t ask me why… it’s a pretty fun product, especially with chalk markers!
I pounced white dye ink through the butterfly and ink splotch portion of the stencil and then spritzed Glimmer Mist over it to give it some gorgeous shimmery color. I applied dimensional paste with a spatula over two other areas of the stencil and let that dry.
I created the sentiment on the computer, hand-cut the words and adhered them to the left side of the ATC, then outlined them with a purple chalk marker. The finishing touch were pink and yellow dots created with chalk markers. I sprayed a matte fixative over the entire ATC so nothing would rub off.
Cardstock/Paper: Darice All Chalked Up cardstock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black Marker; Sweet Stamps White Dye Ink; Bistro Chalk Markers- Purple, Pink and Orange, Tattered Angels Dragonfly Glimmer Mist

Hello, my crafty friends! Happy Friday – it’s Saturday the 9th already in Brisbane and this month’s Anything Goes with Dies Challenge is live over at Happy Little Stampers! I’m thrilled to share my DT inspiration project with you today!
I used the Crafter’s Companion Die’sire ‘Ruth’ Create-A-Card die set along with a Sizzix Dotted Ovals die for my project this month. I looked at my dwindling stash of birthday cards and decided that a pretty birthday card was in order. I cut the card base from Whisper White cardstock and the layer from Rich Razzleberry cardstock.
I have a huge stash of digital images I’ve never used and have vowed to use some of them in this new year. I chose the purple version of Fred She Said’s Lenten Roses for the focal image and cut it with the dotted ovals die. I added some Spectrum Noir Crystal Clear Sparkle overlay marker to the leaves of the flowers for a little shimmer and they look gorgeous! I’m so smitten!
For the inside, I cut a Rich Razzleberry layer and then a white layer, and stamped a simple sentiment.
And here’s another look… I’m in love with this one! Very happy with the result!

Hi everyone! It’s the first Tuesday in February and I’m happy you’ve stopped by! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Stinkin’ Inkers Challenge Blog and I’m happy to share my DT inspiration project for our February Baby, It’s Cold Outside challenge! We’d love to see your project featuring hot cocoa, sweaters, mittens, or quilts. I created a Christmas card in non-traditional colors featuring a quilt created with the My Favorite Things Die-namics Diagonal Quilt Square Cover-Up die and vintage marketplace papers. So fun!
I picked out several patterned papers and some brown cardstock, and proceeded to cut several quilts. Then I pieced them together with the different papers and the brown cardstock, so I now have several finished quilts to use on other projects. :) I stamped a sentiment in the lower right-hand corner and added some Rox stones to complete the front.
I decorated in the inside panel with strips of brown and pink cardstock, stamped the Christmas sentiment and then layered the panel on the brown cardstock.
And one more peek… I love quilts (and the warmth they bring) and I love Christmas cards in non-traditional colors!

Hi everyone! Happy Friday and February 1st! It’s time for another fun challenge over at Love To Scrap Challenge Blog and I’m excited to share my DT inspiration project for LTSCB #118 – Anything Goes with optional twist of Monochrome! We are being sponsored this month by The Paper Shelter so come on over and play with us for a chance to win a prize!
I created a fun quirky friendship card using the adorable Snowball Fight digital stamp which includes the focal image and background paper. Loving the blue/teal/green blend which is perfect for a monochrome project!
I printed the background paper several times and cut out the scalloped circles in the center and layered them. I embellished all the snowflakes with Clear Star Gelly Roll pen. I fussy cut the image and popped it up on foam squares for a little dimension. I printed the sentiment on vellum, cut it in a strip and added it to the left side, then layered the entire panel on gold cardstock. I added several gold sequins to finish the front.
I created the sentiment for the inside on the computer, cut the panel and layered it on gold cardstock.
One more look… such an adorable image and paper! Love how this turned out!

Hi everyone! I’m back with another fun project this morning! A new challenge is live over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #22 – Anything Goes + Rubberband Stamping! Nope, I’m not out of my mind, lol! You really CAN stamp with rubberbands – either wrapped around an acrylic block or a brayer! I created a clean and simple thank you card using two sizes of rubberbands wrapped around a 3″ square acrylic block, and it turned out pretty neat!
I masked the top and bottom portions of the panel, inked the center with two light shades of distress ink, stamped in the center with two darker shades of distress ink, and then removed the masking paper. I stamped a large sentiment across the bottom and then layered the panel and attached it to the card base. I stamped large flowers on Valspar paint cards and punched them out. I affixed glitter gumdrops to the centers of the flowers and adhered them to the front of the card.
I embellished the inside panel with strips of the same cardstock used to layer the front panel and adhered a stamped/punched flower. I left the inside blank to write a custom sentiment.
And here’s one more look… I really like rubberband stamping! ;)
