sweet birthday - STB #7

Another girlie card for the Seize the Birthday challenge 7.  Great makes from the team this week.
The image, papers and sentiment are from Pink Petticoat (paper is from His and Her valentine range), and this is the sketch for this week.
As the papers are snippets, I shall run over to Pixie's Crafty Workshop snippet playground.  Join in with both if you can. Have fun x.

It'a all about the accessories

I feel really pleased with myself this morning, I have cleaned the oven (yuk) - not wonderfully clean, just two notches up on the de-coked scale, lol.  And I have put the finishing touches to this card.  
The image and papers are from Pink Petticoat (Lola Rose and Springtime).  The 'celebrate' is also from PP (Happy Birthday;s). Metallic thread, bag charm and a bit of bling to finish it off.  Enjoy your day. x

Pixie's Crafty Workshop snippet challenge #60

Just finished off a card for the Snippet's Playground this week.
I have used SU in-colour card for the base and Comfort Cafe DSP for the design of the card.  The snippets I used for the flower which is a Bigshot die.  Love the new brads from the Spring/Summer SU catalogue, and I just happened to have a self-adhesive pearl the right size to fit in the middle.  Sentiment is from Pink Petticoat. Thanks for looking, and have a good week. x

Hedgie Birthday - STB #6

Happy Saturday everyone.  I am entering into Seize the Birthday challenge 6 (masculine card this week).
I have used my newly purchased e-bay find of Penny Black 'For You' stamp, and my new papers which I won recently from a Quick Cards entry - Paper Cellar 'Celebrations'.  I am really pleased with both items.  The little sentiment is a SU salebration stamp set Pretty Petites.
Thanks for looking.  Have a good weekend. x

Snippets playground #58

I used this week's Clean and Simple sketch 226 as the inspiration for this card, just turned the sketch around.  I have used snippets of SU design papers, some paper piercing and SU Greenhouse Garden stamp for the flowers.  Hope someone has got a bonfire in Di's snippet playground - its a bit chilly around here!  Have fun x

valentine gift box

I saw a Youtube video for a 10cm square pizza gift box, and I thought I would have a go.  This is how it came out, and inside are some yummy Love Hearts Squashies.  Link for instructions here. Have fun!, and thanks to 'Shonz' for the share.

The sentiment die cut is a Sizzix die.

Less Is More and Seize the Birthday

Happy 2nd Birthday to Less Is More!  This week the challenge is to use Kraft and Kreme, and the sponsor is the lovely lady from Pink Petticoat.  Well, haven't played along for a while, but as I have been playing with the PP kraft and neutrals collections I thought I would join in.  I used the Seize the Birthday sketch as inspiration, and this week it is for those pesky men cards.
As Less is More is a clean and simple style I have used scoring and paper piercing for the central panel on the card to give a cleaner look.
I printed onto white cardstock the biscotti colour from the natural neutrals collection, and the image was a digi stamp from TeddyBo printed onto vintage cream.  The kraft card is kraft paper 3 from the organics kraft collection.  Font is 2peas squish. Thanks for looking, and have a good week. x
