new punch board and Incolors

I played around with the new paperbag punchboard and the super cool new =&0=&by Stampin’ Up! The=&1=& is great and so are the new colors – can’t really decide which one my favorite is though – and, does the bag look better with or without the little flower accents? I don’t know 🙁 how do you like the new stamp set? I like it a whole bunch and can’t wait to order some =&2=& next week, June 2nd, when you can order from the new annual catalogue 🙂

treat bag :)

a very girly treat bag is what I created – polka dots, flowers, butterflies, pink – girly, right? 😛 We’d love to see some clear elements on your project over at CUYL – so hop over and play along — I punched some butterflies out of transparent foil 🙂 I like it 🙂 =&0=& AllSortsChallenge: April Showers bring May Flowers Fussy and Fancy: Lots of Flowers The Stamping Boutique: Ribbon and/or Lace Just us Girls: Twine Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

Bingo – stay closed box

We’re playing Bingo over at Bastel-Traum 🙂 I love those kind of challenges ;D I chose the bottom line and also used butterflies as my choice 🙂 I simply adore this cute stay closed box (click here for a tutorial) – I thought it might be a difficult and time consuming box but it’s not – fast and easy = perfect 🙂 =&1=& Craft my Life: Anything but a Card Glitter and Sparkle: Butterflies Amuse: Butterflies Ike’s World: Things with Wings Deep Ocean Challenge: Things with Wings Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

embossing :))

We’d love to see some embossed projects over at Challenge Up Your Life – wether it’s heat embossed or “dry”? we’d love to see’em all 🙂

I chose the “Something Lacy” background stamp and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder, then I went over it with a sponge and Blackberry Bliss – I tried to create an ombre look – it didn’t really turn out the way I hoped it would be but it’s not too bad I guess 🙂
