Altered Stationary Box- Daisy and Dandelion

Here are the before shots of the stationary box-


Then here are the after shots:




When altering my stationary box I used pieces of pink paper which I used mod podge to glue on then I coated over with the same stuff. I then stamped the daisy and dandelion images on to card stock with an archival ink pad so it would not run and coloured it with water colour pencils and inked the edges with the same ink pad. I also stuck this on with mod podge. The letter on the front of the box where done with the cricut and Pooh font.

Here is another entry for the challenge. On this card I used the Bubbles and Squeak Clear stamp set along with an Anita’s Happy Birthday background stamp and the Xcut dimensional butterfly punch.



This is one of my entries for the challenge. I just love the daisy and dandelion stamps so I have just treated myself to the new masculine range of stamps sets. On this card I have also used my new dimensional butterfly punch which I just adore. I also used my favourite colour scheme which is Pink and Brown at the moment just love these colours together. The materials used for this were the daisy and dandelion clear stamp set, Anita’s Butterfly Background stamp and the Xcut dimensional butterfly punch.


To a special Mum

Here is card that I have been making over the past few days. I first created a cut file in Cricut design Studio using George and Basic Shapes and Pooh Font using the Cricut Expression. I then embossed the letters through my sizzix with texture plates. I then decorated the word book with cardstock that I embossed with my sizzix texture plates and then sanded the card so it stood out more. I then stamped and coloured some forever friends images and inked the edges with a gold ink pad. On some of the forever friends I stamped them again on gold paper and cut out parts such as a heart or present and textured this. I then added some triple embossing done with gold metal magic embossing powder. Once I had done this I printed out the verse and cut it down and inked the edges. I then added a paper flower sprayed with crafty notions creative spray in gold and added a rain dot to the centre. I also cut a butterfly out of gold paper and embossed using a Cuttlebug tag team set. Then to bind it all together I put eyelets through the lot using my crop-a-dile and then put ribbon through and tied it in a bow.

Both of the cards used the cricut for wording (Pooh Font) and sizzix texture plates with an ink pad to make the background. The pink card as well as the orange card used the Marshmallows and Candyfloss set of daisy and dandelion clear stamps.
