Cupcake Craft Challenge – Gift Card

Happy Monday everyone! Hope you all had great weekends and are ready for another week. There is finally some sunshine in London, so I’m happy.


Today I’m back with another great Cupcake challenge. Hopefully you got to enjoy the Cupcake birthday treasure hunt! This week the challenge is a Gift Card – a card & gift in one. I put together this set of baby-oriented thank you notes that I’ll be giving to a girlfriend of mine who is about to deliver. I figure until she gets some personalised thank you notes made, she could use these easy-to-mail single layer cards.



This week we are joined by Bugaboo Stamps who are offering one lucky winner seven digital images!


And, because August is birthday month, we have 3 monthly sponsors! We are joined by Crafts U Love,who are generously giving a Β£15 Gift Voucher to spend in their store, Mo’s Digital Pencil, who are offering a $10 gift voucher and lastly, Sew Sweet.  Sew Sweet are offering one lucky winner a Β£10 Gift Voucher.

Cupcake Craft Challenge – Single Layer Card

Hey everyone! Happy Monday!
Well, it is my week to choose the theme over at Cupcake Craft and I chose single layer cards. I think this challenge has caused some serious frustration amongst the lovely DT, so please accept my apologies! I also find single layer cards difficult, but they are so much easier to mail & make great card sets – I had a thank you set in mind when I made today’s card – I think I’ll reproduce this in a rainbow of bright colours.

So, give yourself a little challenge this week & play along! This week there is a great prize from Simon Says Stamp of a $20 gift voucher.


And, its the beginning of the month, which means we have a change in Toppings! This month, Icing on the Cupcake is joined by Polka DoodlesPolka Doodles are generously offering one lucky winner, chosen at random, a selection of four Christmas themed stamps:

Thank You!

I don’t often make card sets, but I thought I would start coming up with some single layer thank you note sets to expand my collection (apologies for the bad photos!).

I love Papertrey Ink’s Dot Spot & thought it would be fitting for the job. I stamped the double-ended banner stamp from Banner Builders and masked it off when stamping the dot image.

I also did matching & lined envelopes for this set – its amazing how much a decorated envelope can enhance a card! I used various Papertrey Ink Bitty Dot & Bitty Box papers in purples & pinks.

This card is for the current ‘Bring the Bling’ challenge at CAS-ual Friday.

Thanks for stopping by!
