Sunday and it's time for a new challenge

Sunday and it's time for a new challenge at One Stitch At A Time.  Our theme this week is Anything goes with 3 D. It can be a box, a bag or a pop-up box.  My team mates at OSAAT have come up with some fabulous ideas so please check them out here at the challenge blog.

For my little gift bag I chose to use Tropical Ice Cream Cone by Crafty Girl Creations.

I chose a simple little white gift bag and covered it with a piece of Pink Petticoat paper with little seaside huts on. Its not available anymore as the Pink Petticoat site has closed.

I coloured the image with a mix of Copics and Promarkers and although you can't see it in the dull natural light the ice cream sparkles with some clear Wink of Stella.I self generated the the two little sentiments and cut them out with a fish tail banner from Cheery Lynn designs

Happy Birthday, Sunshine!

It was one of my son's birthday yesterday the 8th of February.  Just a reminder of the card I made for him using the Graphic 45 Kraft paper pad. Its a lovely grungy pad and perfect for mens cards.

I cut the three cards out and distressed the edges and inked with some of Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs ink.  The die at the back of the cards a Sue Wilson Heraldic Square, perfect for these playing cards to sit on. I think the tag is by Sue Wilson too.

He was pleased as there isn't another one like it!

Love Is In The Air

Love is in the Air is the title of the latest challenge over at the One Stitch at A Time blog.

For my card this week I chose to use Menhdi Heart digital stamp pack and with it there are also some gorgeous backing papers too, you can find it right here

As I wanted the heart to really stand out I've used a paper from The Lake House pad by Kaisercraft.
My little sentiment is from the words of a son by Celine Dion that just happened to be playing when looking for something to write. Some skeleton style leaves and a lovely prima flower to match.

Please pop over to the OSAAT blog and have a look at the fabulous creations by our team members and have a go at our challenge, we would love to see what you create.
