Recipe Box

I was browsing the cuttlebug challenge blog and was inspired by the Recipe Box on there. I just new I needed to make one of these.

Here is the before picture..

And AFTER! I love it!! "Recipes" is on From My Kitchen cartridge, The font for "Yum" is all mixed up and the background for "Yum" is Storybook cartridge. The cherries are from Paisley cartridge. Everything was sized on my gypsy and cut out from there. I inked the orange paper on the top and the bottom as well as around "yum". I stickled alittle, the cherries I used red and green stickles, for around the top and bottom I used copper stickes. It was very time consuming with all the stickling and waiting for it to dry and the inking but I loved doing it.

Here is a close up of the lid.

The tabs for the inside.

Thanks for looking!! :) I look forward to making more of these.

Birthday Princess

I felt like playing with Purple tonight, can you tell? :) This is one of my favorite stamps. I colored the stamp with my copic markers. Hopefully one day I will be able to blend. The flower is from the Pagoda cricut cartridge. I added stickles to her crown, heart in her hair, her magic wand and the heart button on the flower.

Happy Birthday - Easel Card with Gypsy

This is an Easel card that I made for a co-worker's birthday tomorrow. The tree, scallop background and the grass is from Gypsy Wanderings, "Happy Birthday" is from Stamping Solutions and the design that happy birthday is on is from Storybook. I welded some images together on my gypsy. The buttons I had to hot glue on the tree so they stayed. I pop-dotted the tree and the mat with "happy birthday" on it.

The panda is from Pagoda cartridge, the scallop heart and the small heart is from Sweethearts cartridge.

I stamped the vellum with a light purple heart and circle stamp and then in black "be mine". I also stamped the front of the little heart with the "be mine" stamp. I then stickled the little heart with purple stickles.
