Top Note 'surprise'

I am super proud that I managed to create this with no dramas!! You could say that this is my first 'off the page' item. I got this idea from Marelle Taylor and decided to give it a go as it looked fantastic. This is the end result for me and it was super easy to make and only took about 15 minutes.
The outside is created using Stampin' Ups! top note big shot die, and the flower also with the blossom party die, (The stamp is a retired stamp) and stampin' Up ribbon and smooch spritz.
Inside I have placed chocolates in little pouches (see below). These chocolates are a mini variety from Aldi and you get about 5 chocolates per pack for around $2.
I created this as a thankyou for my workshop host 'Nikki' and she was quite happy with it too.


And this is a view of the inside. I have used half a sheet of the 'love letter' DSP and folded the bottom up slightly to create the pocket for the chocolates. I used the sticky strip to hold to the top note cardstock front.

If you would like to know more just message me.
Thanks for looking

2nd Birthday card

My little man is going to a birthday get-together tomorrow, so I made this card for him to give to her. This card was inspired by Nicole Stalker's congratulations card. I just changed the colours and images and was happy with the bright result.

items used:
stamp sets: well scripted (summer mini catalogue), fun and fast notes (pg 46 of current catalogue).
DSP - DSP patterns stack (pg 127)
white satin ribbon, cardstock and watercolouring was using the 'in colours' range

Stampin' Start kit

When I signed onto Stampin' Up! back in October i decided to play around with some items I received in my start up kit as well as some I already had. I decided to cover a white gift box I had, and turn it into my sewing box (as I am not a sewer by any means, can only do the very basic repairs etc, and dont have many things to put in the box).
So, I used the DSP paper stack that came with the kit ans some of the cardstock. I used some ribbon for the edges which I already had and the same with the leftover chipboard pieces. Inked up the chipboard, stamped the DSP on front and sides and created this funky flower with the scallop circle punch and topped it off with an antique brad.
I am very happy with the bright result, and now when i want to find some cotton, they are all there together and I dont have to rummage through the cupboard.
Thanks for looking, (apologies if the photos are slightly off colour)

Smooch Spritz challenge

Here are a few cards that I have made for birthdays that are coming up. I have also entered them over at Stampin up in Oz for the smooch spritz challenge.
All 3 cards are using the Big Shot die:Blossom Party. Its a very versatile die and I love using it with the smooch spritz.




And here is a close up of the big shot flowers with the smooch spritz
