Today’s card is a mini one! It is only 3″ x 3″ – designed to go along with some flowers or a small gift. I love making these mini cards and thanks to circle punches, foam tape & a good circle stamp, it came together in no time! 

Make sure to visit the other blogs for loads of wonderful inspiration!

10 Minute Craft Dash #30

Hey friends! 3rd Wednesday of the month & time for another 10 Minute Craft Dash (btw, how is it already the 3rd week of November????). Anyways, today we are joined by a fabulous sponsor – Uniko Studio for a $15 gift certificate. Reason enough to play along – love their stuff. And the colors this week are gorgeous.

First, a disclaimer about my card – I had the washi bow ready ahead of time. I used a tutorial on Ashley Marcu’s blog to make it & to be honest it was trickier than I thought and I’m not over the moon with the result, but I went with it anyway! This card took me exactly 10 minutes – it was a tight one with supplies flying around like crazy!

Thats all from me today. Make sure to check out the amazing creations of the DT over at Paulina’s blog!

10 Minute Craft Dash #29

Hey friends! First Wednesday of the month and that means time for another 10 Minute Craft Dash! Woohoo! The challenge today is Feature Buttons and we are joined by the fabulous Denami Design for a great prize!

Today’s challenge was a nice change from the color challenges (not that they aren’t fun!) and everyone has buttons in their stash, so be sure to play along. The possibilities are endless – especially for Christmas. And, making 10 minute cards for Christmas is a must during this busy month!

CD#29
This card uses some Jillibean Soup woodgrain buttons I’ve been hoarding for a long time, a lovely sentiment sent from Simon Says Stamp, Simple Stories paper and an adorable woodblock Hero Arts stamp set.  The card took me 9 min 54 seconds – the little details like the orange pinked border strip and the bow always take me longer than I think they will – this one was tight!

Thanks for stopping by & be sure to check out all the beautiful DT creations and play along!

10 Minute Craft Dash #28

Hey friends!
So sorry for the quiet blog lately – I have had a lot to catch up on in this first week back to real life in Zurich after a month long holiday!

Anyway, here as usual on the 3rd Wednesday of the month to share a new challenge over at the 10 Minute Craft Dash! As a DT and big supporter of Paulina, we’d love some feedback on the challenge – you can read her post here. But, onto the fun – a new challenge sponsored by the fab Paper Sweeties.


So, onto today’s creation. For me the trick to getting the card done in 10 minutes is to use one of my go-to sketches. I don’t try to reinvent the wheel in 10 minutes – do what works!

10 Minute Craft Dash #25

CD25

Hello! I’m thrilled to be here today sharing a card for the new 10 Minute Craft Dash! This challenge is just the best – it has really been pushing me creatively and I hope it is doing the same for you! This week’s card took me 8 min 36 seconds. Each challenge I perfect my method a bit more ;-)

This week our sponsor is the fabulous Lawn Fawn – such nice, generous people! Check out this great prize…

I made this card during a manic week full of craft fair prep – I was going for a super simple card that I hoped to turn into a card set. This particular card is super simple, but I simplified it even further for the set – I just made a 1 layer card with the feathers stamped & skipped the twine – I’ll share that one tomorrow! 
Thanks for stopping by & make sure to check out all the details over at Pretty Pink Posh & play along!

10 Minute Craft Dash #22

RI#23

Hey friends! Hope you’re having a great week. I got back late last night from a short vacation. It was nice to be away, but I have a mountain of laundry, so gotta keep this short!

Today is the start of another 10 Minute Craft Dash. We have a great sponsor & prize – $25 gift certificate from Paper Sweeties! The colors are gorgeous as well so I’m sure you won’t have any trouble whipping up a beauty!

My card took me 9 min 43 seconds – even when I think I’m going to make it with plenty of time something always stumps me at the end – this time it was the pearls! Still not sure they’re in the right place ;-)

Make sure to head over to Pretty Pink Posh for all the challenge details & all the DT inspiration.

Cupcake Craft Challenge – Textalicious!

Morning! Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Its time for another fab Cupcake challenge – this week’s theme is Textalicious. For this challenge you’ll have to get super creative – use a page from a newspaper, dictionary or book or a stamp with text print. For my card I die cut flowers from a book and layered them to create a big textalicious flower. 


This week we’re joined by the lovely Simon Says Stamp who are offering a $20 gift certificate to the lucky winner! And our monthly sponsor for November is is Crafts U Love who are generously giving away a £15 Gift Voucher!

So don’t throw away today’s paper – put it to good use for a project this week and play along. Make sure to check out all the amazing DT creations as well!

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 £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 £10 Gift Voucher.  


Make sure to visit the Cupcake blog to check out all the great DT creations and join the fun!
