Cupcake Exploding Box

I made this exploding box as an order from my Daughter. She is pleased with it, which is all I ask. Really enjoy making these, once I have got my brain cell working, ha ha.
Was a very warm job, sun pouring through the window and the temperature in my tiny craft room was soaring ....................................phew!!!
Base cardstock is my usual Snow White Linen Card.
Backing papers are all downloaded from Bearly Mine Designs, just adore these papers.
Bottom layer of images are digi stamps from Sketching Stamper.
Middle layer are Anya Stamps.
Top Layer are also from Sketching Stamper.
The cupcakes on the outside of the box and the tag, are Lindsay's Stamp Stuff. Some really gorgeous images on that site, must get some more, lol.
The cupcake in the centre was cut on my cougar as was the wrapper. The file for the wrapper I downloaded from here.
All images were coloured using copic pens and lashings of Crystal Stickles to add a bit of bling. Flowers, ribbon etc from stash.
The sentiments were printed and foiled.
Hoping it will be a bit cooler in my craft room tomorrow morning as I need to make a Good Luck card.

A Horse, A Horse ....................

I had coloured this image, being one my friend gave me, about a week ago and decided to make a card for my Son's Fiance as she loves horses.
I still don't seem to be able to get the light right with my photos, must do better ...................!!

Materials used :

Papers were a freebie with a magazine and can't remember at the moment who the designer is.
Base card is white linen as usual with pink Stardream for the matting. I had a go at sewing the papers but tension wasn't quite right. Thought it had an interesting effect so left it as is, lol
Flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment was designed on PC, printed on laser printer ( new toy donated by my friend ) and foiled with my laminator.

Getting to like these easle cards, might make a few more, ha ha.

As promised, here is the Gift Box and the jar, lol. Made the backing paper for the jar cover myself and all other materials are as stated on the card below.

Hope to be back more regularly from now on, hopefully being the operative word, ha ha.

Off to visit some badly neglected blogs this evening, so sorry I haven't been visiting and commenting.


Father's Day card

Made this card for my Father in Law for father's Day. I am also making a box to hold of all things a jar of lemon Cheese, lol. Long story but I think he will see the joke. I used a template from Bev's wonderful site, here, thank you Bev, the easiest one I have found for doing step cards.

I have used:

Cardstock: Stardream
Backing Paper: Bearly Mine
Images: Digi stamps from Printable Craft Shop
Colouring: Copics
Embellishments: From stash. Sentiment holder and sentiment done on my Cougar

Will post the gift box, when I have finished it, hopefully later today.

At last, have done some more cards. Still finding it hard to get my mojo back and working.

I used:
Card: Stardream Gold
Image: Heidi among flowers CCDesigns
Coloured with Copics
Leaves , mounts and names cut and drawn on my Cougar
Ribbon, lace and other embellishments from stash.
