Tea break!

Today I have used the cute little die called

to make this cute little teabag treat holder!

I cut myself a piece of double sided paper measuring 3'' x 9''
I scored at 4'' and 5'' and punched a tag top to each end and burnished the folds.

I then cut myself two strips 2'' x 5'' using the other side of the paper.

I scored each strip at 1/2'' then concertina folded them.
I then cut 6 pieces of paper 2'' by 3''
and glued in place on each fold.

This formed the pockets for my teabags.

I glued the concertina piece into the centre of my folded tag pouch.

I then cut the Stacked Butterfly Cups using white card.

I added the Cups to the outside of my teabag tag pouch
using dimensionals and stuck the butterflies so they were raised.

I then added my goodies, sorry for the blurred photo. I was holding mid air lol.

It held 4 teabags and a small snack packet of biscuits!
I secured the top with white ribbon.

For my project today I used:

For a friend

Today I am sharing a friendship card using a mixture of dies


I cut the Lily Heart Panel out in orange card
and the Dotted Nesting Square (largest one) in white stamping card.

I glued the Lily Heart Panel to the front of my base card using wet glue.

And having stamped my image and coloured it, I glued the white square
over the top of the panel covering the heart.

I cut the Flower Friends in orange card and glued to my image.
The card was finished with an organza bow.
I thought this gave a whole new look to the Lily Heart Panel
and made a great background for my image.

For my project I used:
Stamp - not sure. I have had for years, it's even gone sticky, but still worked :)
May be from Crafters Companion?
Orange card, neenah stamping card,
Stampin' up black Ink pad
organza ribbon
Aqua pens, water, paintbrush

Confirmation gift box

Today I am sharing a Confirmation Gift box using this gorgeous die called

It is all really sparkly and shiny but photo is not showing it so well.

I started by cutting the LOVELY DOVE in silver mirri card.

I then prepared a piece of green glittered card measuring 8'' x 4 1/4''
I scored long side - 1/2'', 3 6/8'', 4 1/4'', 7 5/8''
I scored short side - 1/2'' and 3 6/8''

I snipped on long side up to first score line on both side, burnished all folds.

I used a circle punch to punch a semi circle for easy opening.

I added wet glue to all the little flaps.

 Using mini pegs to hold in place while drying.

I then added some mini 3d foam to back of my LOVELY DOVE
and stuck to front of box.

I typed some info on a 3'' square piece of paper and stuck to inside of lid.

And made a small 3'' x 3'' sized envelope to pop some money in and added a
mini dove punch using same green card.
 This is how the inside looks!

Hope you like it!

Christmas in March!

Is it ever too early to start on Christmas cards?
The answer is NO when you have this gorgeous die in your hands!!
I am using

I cut the wreath out twice using plain white card.

I added dimensions to back side of one wreath and
with scissors I clipped bits away to release the holly so I could curl it up for a 3d effect.

I layered them together on the dimensionals.

Next I cut a piece of nice red card and folded into a 5x5" card.
I ran the front of the card through a holly embossing folder.

I mounted the Holiday Wreath onto card and added a gingham bow and some pearls.
I printed off a little robin, coloured with promarkers and stuck him with dimensionals to the centre
of the Holiday Wreath.

I finished the card by adding a sentiment and some red gems to the wreath.

For my card I used
