Little Gumball Machine

Over at The Cutting Cafe, Regina Easter has just released this a Little Gumball Machine, printable set of stamps.  I have cut and printed everything for this card from my Pazzles Inspiration.

This set includes 13 images... I have used the gumball image with the frame card from the set. FOR A LIMITED TIME THIS SET IS FREE when you purchase the GUMBALL MACHINE SHAPED CARD at The Cutting Cafe.  The offer is good until Monday night at midnight the 1st of August 2011.  

I have layered the card onto a scalloped base and punched hearts in the scallops to run with the heart theme in the machine.  I used some Bakers Twine and a heart shaped pink button with doodling to finish the card.

Dress Shaped Card

This Dress Shaped Card has been cut on my Pazzles Inspiration which is available from The Cutting Cafe.  The Dress Shaped Card comes with a matching envelope and several embellishments for the dress. The template comes in wpc, pdf and svg formats.

I have used co-ordinating Pink Petticoat digital papers for the dress, so easy to use.  I few years ago I couldn't see the point of using digital papers but when you find the papers like these that suit your style you will be hooked for quick easy cards!

I have used my gorgeous seam binding ribbon which is so soft and delicate with a paper bloom.

The Dress Shaped Card cutting file comes with  2 insert sheets.  I have used the party time invite for the inside of this card and again cut it out on my Pazzles Inspiration.

Next week if you head over to The Cutting Cafe there should be a monthly inspiration using this Dress Shaped Card2 template, cutting file where the Design Team will have some FAB projects.

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-

Die-Cutting divas - Shaped Die Cut Cards
Karen's Doodles - Shaped Cards
Totally Papercrafts Challenges - #75 Girly Girls
Top Tip Tuesday - #43 Shaped Cards
Stamp and create - Ribbon and Bows

Smiley Faces

I just love this card because you just can't help but smile at these faces.  For those of you who follow my blog, you will know these are not the typical colours I generally use for my cards BUT I thought they worked well with the bright yellow faces!

I have used 2 sets from The Cutting Cafe for this card.  I have use a file from the WINDOW CARD set of templates and cutting files which features 22 different window cards. For this particular card  I have used the rectangle with circles set which I cut on my Pazzles Inspiration.

For the smiley faces I have used the YOU MAKE ME SMILE printable stamp set which features lots of smiley faces, circle words, sentiments and smiley face borders.......loads of stuff.

Apple for the Teacher card

The kids break up from school next week which I am looking forward school runs, no sandwiches to prepare for lunch boxes and no dashing around.  However, I will miss my crafting time over the summer weeks but nothing compares to having FUN with the kids around.

I made this shaped base card on my Pazzles Inspiration using Kraft Card.  I then layered some white linen card which I ran through my printer using some Lettering Delights fonts which turned out great and gave me the look I wanted.

I cut out this cute apple available at THE CUTTING CAFE from the APPLE SHAPED CARD template.  I then made my 1st ever paper rose, used my new seam binding and printed out the sentiment on the computer.

I hope the teachers will be happy with their 'thank you cards'!

I wanted to enter more challenges but could only find these three, so if you know of any other challenges that I could enter this card into please let me know.

Creative Craft World - For Teacher
Bows & Berries - Kraft Card
Clearly I Stamp - Punches, Die Cuts or Cut Outs

Just Chillin

Wow, it' been a glorious day here in the UK, the sun has been shining all day today.  Over at The Cutting Cafe this month's inspiration is SUMMER themed.

I was looking at some old files that Regina Easter has on her website and noticed this gorgeous printable stamp "JUST CHILLIN" of a popsicle, so called in the USA or lollipop, so called in the UK.

I found a paper stack by Pebbles Inc in one of my craft drawers and decided to take the plunge and use the papers.  They are gorgeous colours and perfect for this card which I cut out on my Pazzles Inspiration.

I promised the kids that once I had made this card we would go into town and watch the street carnival.  I kept my word because this card was so quick to put together.  I designed and cut the shaped base notch card and layers on my Pazzles Inspiration.

If you head over to The Cutting Cafe you will see some SUMMER INSPIRATION projects from The Design Team.  Leave a comment at The Cutting Cafe and let Regina Easter know what you think of the projects and there will be a random draw to win any 3 sets of your choice.  She will randomly choose one winner this coming Friday the 15th before midnight.

I have entered this card into the following challenges:-

Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Summer Fun

Squigglefly- Good Old Summertime 
Crazy 4 Challenges- Summer
