explosion box :)

I made my very first explosion box for my friend’s birthday 🙂 I loved creating it and I hope she likes it as well 🙂 I used the new Bohemian papers by Stampin’ Up! which I simply adore as they scream summer to me  the colors are so bold and vibrant – turquoise waters, sunshine and dark grapes Challenges: RRR: Sizzlin’ Summer Colors Crafty Calendar: Fancy Folds Creative Fingers: Anything Goes Kitty Bee Designs: Birthday Stampavie and more: Verpackung Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

a friend asked if I could make a last minute babycard – of course I can 🙂 she wanted the card to be kraft and green – with an elephant and the name of the baby boy – I think it turned out great – I love those cute zoo babies ♥ PS: Don’t forget to check out my giveaway here 🙂 =&0=&: Crafting for all Seasons: it’s a boy thing Papertake Weekly: something for the boys Crafty Creations: embossing Really Reasonable Ribbon: masculine with ribbon or trim Built for Free Using: My Stampin Blog

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 🙂

new InColors

I’m in love with the new Stampin’ Up! =&0=& 🙂 the green is my favorite I think 🙂  If you don’t have a new catalog yet, let me know – it’s new and wonderful and you can order from it starting June 2nd 😀  I made this cute little tealight box – the tutorial is by Sam and can be found here 🙂 my little creation also fits our current CUYL challenge – twine, ribbon and buttons 🙂 hop over to check out our dt’s work and play along 🙂

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

sunny card :)

I love the color =&0=&  Not every shade of yellow of course, my favorite is a nice, bold sunflower yellow, almost orange but still yellow – just like =&1=& by Stampin’ Up! I couldn’t resist making a card with just this one color 🙂 I love how it turned out, so simple, so cas, but I still like it 😉 I adore the flower which I stamped with Versamark and embossed it with white powder – then I colored it with watercolors and that is it 🙂 I made it for the current =&2=& where we’d love to see 2 ribbon 😉 easy peasy, right?

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 🙂
