Builder Birdcage - Hostess Gift

These small gift boxes contain little pressies for my recent Party Hostesses and also my Party 'Door Prize' winners.

I love the new Builder Birdcage stamp set .... it's very much 'me' :o)

I hadn't used it yet so decided to decorate this month's Hostess gift boxes using it .... it's a really cute set!

The sentiment comes from the Jar of Love stamp set .... and the paper from the Cupcakes & Carousels 6" x 6" stack.

You've seen the little Door Prize box before. It holds 4 Green & Black mini chocolates. I decorated them using the same paper and one of the new Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits dies.

So Very Much ..... Sale-a-Bration Freebie!

I really love the So Very Much Sale-a-Bration stamp set! It's so easy to create a beautiful card with it ..... the large sentiment does all the work for you :o)

I stamped the Thank you onto some paper from the Cupcakes and Carousels 6" x 6" paper stack. All the papers in this set are gorgeous. They are all slightly 'distressed' so are perfect for a grungy or antiqued look.

The scalloped edge was created by using one of the framelits from the Cutie Pie set.

Remember that all the products in the Sale-a-Bration brochure are FREE! You can choose 1 free item for each £45 spent.

Beautiful You with Paper Piecing

I have been back playing with the Beautiful You stamp set! This time I used Paper Piecing.

This is a simple technique to do ..... You stamp your image at least twice ...... once on the card mat .... and again on Designer Series Paper. You then cut out the parts you want from the DSP and glue them over the other image. 

The papers used are from the beautiful Floral Boutique pack. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiments stamp set. I used the Stitched Shapes Framelits for the white mats.
