A few weeks ago I shared a number of projects with the ‘Beautiful You’ ladies. I showed how to change the dress line of one of the ladies. If you missed that post you can see that HERE.
I started making a video but I didn’t come to share that. We won’t worry about the video now, but during the process I made a couple of these ladies so thought I would finish the cards off. I have the card to show you today. It is similar to the original card.
Once I coloured the stamped lady with the Aquapainter and Watercolor Pencils, I cut the piece with the Layering Oval Framelits. Then I adhered a Paper Lace Doily behind it with a few loops of Gold Thread. I actually had a white card piece already embossed with the ‘Fluttering’ Embossing Folder. This piece was adhered on to a Red card mat and then a Thick Whisper White card base. The sentiment “Celebrate” was stamped in black on to Real Red card and punched out with the Duet Banner Punch.
If you want to see the rest of the ‘Beautiful You’ cards I have shared recently then be sure to click on the tag below of “Beautiful You” and it will take you to all the posts.
Thanks for visiting today,
I have wanted to make a Bendi card for some time. I had actually forgotten about it until I saw it on Splitcoaststampers last week. I thought this would be a great idea for this week’s Colour Inkspirations Challenge #07 and Carousel Birthday set might just work well for it. Why not use it too when it will be leaving us very soon. Boo Hoo!
So here are the colours for this week.
And here is my card…
Can’t you just hear that Carnival music playing. 🙂
If you would like to make your own Bendi card then you can find the tutorial HERE on Splitcoaststampers.com.
Just a tip with the tutorial: I spent a lot of time stressing about where to line the slits up and how long the tabs should be. Don’t worry too much about it though. If you mark the pencil lines as it say on the tutorial. Mark the tabs in first that will slide in your slits. Make them how wide or the angle you want then cut the tabs. Then line up the tabs on the pencil line where the slit is to be and mark the widest part of the tab in pencil on the line. I then cut the slits with my Stampin’ Trimmer.
Have fun making your own,

Last weekend I had a wedding to go to. It was a lovely occasion and special to see. I thought I would show you the card.
The base card is Dapper Denim. You might be able to see the sparkling card mat. I have layered the stamped white piece on to Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. Just a tip: Save your Glimmer paper and cut a rectangle from the centre of the Glimmer Paper to use on another project. You have the frame shape to use for this project. On the white card I stamped the floral strips and layered on 2 hearts from the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits. One heart is from Dapper Denim and the other heart from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper. The sentiment is from Rose Wonder.
I stamped the inside too. (The photos seems a bit washed out sorry!).
I stamped the floral strip again and this sentiment is from Rose Wonder also. This is a great set for weddings.
To finish the card I added a bow with the Dapper Denim Ruched Ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by,
Easter is this weekend. Are you all sorted?? I had these little Lindt chocolate bunnies left over from class last week and wanted to make a special box for them. I will show you what I created and I have the tutorial below to make your own.
It’s a little shallow box with a clear Acetate lid on top. I realised one of the bunnies was a bit squashed but hey! I went with it still!! 🙂
TO MAKE YOUR OWN CLEAR BUNNY BOX
I have included Metric and Imperial but please check the Imperial measurements first. 🙂
15.4cm x 5.4cm. (6 1/8″ x 2 1/8).
Score at 1.2cm (1/2″) on all 4 sides.
Cut up on the small score lines on opposite ends. Fold on all the scored lines. Add adhesive. I used Fast Fuse. Assemble your box.
*For Imperial measurements please test them first.
17cm x 14cm (6 3/4″ x 5 1/2″)
On the 17cm (6 3/4″) side score at 2cm and 15cm (1 3/16″and 5 7/8″)
On the 14cm side (5 1/2″) side score at 5.5cm and 8.5cm (2 3/16″ and 3 3/8″).
*Apologies for the photo quality. It is a bit hard with the lighting and the shiny acetate.
Cut up on the small score lines on each side. Fold on the score lines. The acetate is hard to fold over but run along the folded line with your bone folder to press it down. Add your adhesive to the small tab at the side and down one of the side tabs. Adhere together to form a box.
Hope that is clear?? Decorate as you like.
I wrapped around some Sweet Sugarplum Ruched ribbon, then decorated it with the diecut flower with the Stylish Stems Framelits. The sentiment is from the Little Cuties set, cut with the Stitches Shapes Framelits and a small Layering Ovals Framelits. I actually had these little “bits” on my desk from a project I didn’t end up using so that worked well.
I hope you like the cute box?? There is just enough time to make your own.
I am a little excited! I have just been chosen as a TOP 5 Pick for this past week’s Colour INKspirations Challenge #06. This was for my Dragonfly Dreaming card I showed recently. It’s nice to know they liked my card. I can now proudly display the badge on my blog. 🙂
This was my card if you didn’t see it.
I am really enjoying taking part in these challenges. It has helped me think about my stamping a bit more and to give things a go. Life is crazy, busy but it has been good to take some time out and stamp something for myself.
If you want to join in too then head over to the Facebook Group Page HERE and check it out.
Wishing you a happy day/night.
