Topper is Docrafts
Sentiment is Craftwork Cards
I've stamped a SU circle stamp with clear ink and clear embossing powder on to navy card-stock
The gold/ brown strip has a nice shimmer to it that isn't picked up on the photo.

This was for my friend's recent 40th birthday.
She is hedgehog mad so I splashed out on some charms (eBay) and a greatly-reduced Docrafts die.
I think the card would have been better without the die-cut on but it was so fiddly to put together that I couldn't bear to leave it off.
The sentiment is a Tonic die and I stamped white-on-white and heat embossed using Banana Frog stamps for the 40s

This was my first attempt at a 'card-in-a-box'
I found making the basic box very straight-forward (followed the instructions on Monica's blog ) but when it came to actually decorating it I sat staring into space for about two hours!
I should have used more acetate and not joined all the hearts up but I'll know next time :)

I made this for the butterfly challenge on CM&P
The card was difficult to photograph, it's a 6 x 6 dark purple card-blank but I chopped three inches off the right hand side.
The butterfly and French text stamps are Tim Holtz 'Papillon'
The birthday sentiment stamp is by Hobby Art

Butterfly challenge on CM&P
Sentiment is a Tonic die
Butterfly stamps are Penny Black, I used distress inks to make the background before stamping , then added a bit of glitter.
Card blank is 8 x 8 so it's a biggie.

Originally I was going to make a card featuring butterflies, for a challenge.
Somehow the card evolved into not featuring any butterflies at all, it either looked too plain or too cluttered.
Sentiment is by Hero Arts
Seam binding, C/S, and embossing powder are all Stampin Up

Background coloured with distress inks
Fairy text stamp is very old PSX (these used to go for silly money on ebay, £30+)
Sentiment stamp is Clearly Besotted
I've entered this in the Silhouette challenge on CM&P.
