Window Box Thinlits and Delightful Daisy

The Delightful Daisy designer series paper (order number 144137) just screams summer to me. I am obsessed with flowers, Spring and Summer are my two favourite seasons! With all the lovely weather we are having at the moment I haven’t been crafting as much, being outside is just too much of a distraction! I love to be able to give people a little gift box or bag along with a card, I normally put a few sweets or scented candles into them. So this is where Delightful Daisy meets the Window Box thinlits ( order number 142762). This thinlit set is a must have, there are countless ways to use the set and make every project unique. Along with Delightful Daisy DSP, the Window Box thinlits I also used the Delightful Daisy cardstock pack (order number 144139). I hope this project gives you some inspiration, I have loads more projects coming up using these products! To purchase any just ‘click here‘ and you will be taken to my Stampin Up website.

Easter Treats!

This is the cutest little sweet box I have ever come across! When I seen the mini egg boxes in the spring/summer Stampin UP catalogue I knew that I had to get them. I am sending these out to my family and friends instead of a huge easter eggs, I will of course put a few small eggs into them!. Another must buy for me was the Basket Builder bundle. It is perfect for Easter but like every Stampin Up products it can be mixed up to suit any occasion. Some of the ideas I have in mind for it are spring cards and packaging, birthdays, get well soon and thank you cards/3D designs. Pinterest is full of brilliant ideas!

What I used to make this

 

Mother’s Day Flowers

Recently I went to Ikea, I love the place! When I go it is a full day event and normal leaves my pockets empty! It is a brilliant shop for lots of craft items some of my favourites include box frames, ribbon and little glass jars (brilliant for decorating and filling with sweets!). On this visit I seen these little tin vases, they are everywhere on Pinterest. I picked up two of the smallest sizes (£2 each). I had no idea what I was going to make with them but I knew I needed them. After a few days I finally decided to make flowers for them. I made button flowers, the same as from our craft night. I added larger paper flowers and shredded green paper to make grass. To add the finishing touch I added ribbon, I posted them to my Facebook page and they sold almost instantly!

Mother’s Day

Here is the UK Mother’s Day is on the 26th March. So im going to use this as an on going theme for everything I make this month. I wanted to experiment with masking (stamping around a sheet of scrap paper) I found some amazing examples on Pinterest. A few of the stamps I used in this card are from retired Stampin Up sets, but this look can easily be created with current products. All of the colours I have used are from the current catalogue. If you would like a look at all Stampin Up’s great products click here, you will be linked directly to my shop.

Craft club

Last Friday was our monthly craft club meet up, the theme for this month was flowers. Our group consists of 6 members, including myself. We collect ideas during the month and then decide on one thing to make. Having other crafters around is great for inspiration, we are all at different levels and we all have different skills we teach each other. This is what we made on Friday night.

Happy 60th Birthday

So far this summer box cards have been in massive demand!Everyone seems to love them! This box card was made for a ladies 60th birthday. I wanted this card to be bright and colourful, my two favourite colours a pink and blue they work perfect together. I stamped the flowers and coloured them in, something I don’t often do! The stamp set I used is from Stampin Up and is called Petite Petals (133152) and this set comes with a matching punch (133322). I also used Stampin Up Rhinestones (119246) to add a little sparkle!

Happy 30th Birthday

I loved making this girly box card! I think the colours work perfect together and reminds me of summer. The butterflies I used are made by Hunkydory, the little flowers are from Stampin Up and I also used the matching punch to cut them. ‘Happy Birthday to you’ is also a Stampin Up product but unfortunately it has been retired. I hope you like this card as much as I do! Happy crafting.

Live Simply. Dream Big.

I am a sucker for quotes! I spend hours on Pinterest looking for inspiration and positive thoughts. I thought the quote I used to make this frame is perfect for bringing a smile to anyones face. I printed the quote on a 9×9″ card. I then began to layer up flowers, which I made using my Sizzix big shot. The butterflies have been made using a tonic studio paper punch. I always have a buttons in my craft room, I layered these onto the flowers to give them some extra dimension. I have this fame for sale on in my Etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/RibbonandPearlsCards.

Special Godmother.

I was asked to make a card this week for a special Godmother. To make it I used First Editions ‘leaf’ papers. I also used a Martha Stewart punch to make the decrotive lace detail. This card reminds me of spring and it is perfect for a cool young godmother!
