#98 March Challenge, 2020 – Hope
What represents Hope?
Flowers (Tulips, Myrtle, Marjoram, Lotus, Daisy); castles in the air; clouds; sunshine; and sunrises; new beginnings and/or birth; energy and youth; to name only a few things.
You can tell us what represents HOPE to you…..
TWIST – use yellow as the main colour

I love the hope that a new bub brings.


This is a tiny 7.5 x 7.5 cm square gift card.  I die cut my baby onesie in felt using PTI hanging out die.  Being able to cut materials other than paper was one of the reasons why I originally got a die cutting machine as I did have a punch collection.  I only wanted to cut flowers and hearts in felt to add to my hand made soft toys it was an added bonus that I could also die cut images for card making as well.  Well looking at my die stash you can see this went in a totally different directon! Any way my card also uses a couple of circle punches and a die cut sentiment.

After making this card I might just make some more with felt.  I can see a washing line full of baby onesies.

I hope to see you in the challenge – remember no stamps!  It’s a great way to stretch the other things you have in your stash.

Red, white and blue…


Today I am sharing a card for the July Unstampabelles Challenge.

Have you linked up yet? Details here

Being from Australia my colours are red, white and blue.

july 2016 DT 1 (640x566)

This card is pretty simple.  I started by gathering my red, white and blue pattern papers (SU Polka dot parade and Crafters choice Gelati Basics) and a variety of circle punches (1″, 1.5″, 1 3/8″ and 1.75″). I punched several circles from each of the papers and arranged onto my square card front until I was happy with the layout.  In hindsight I could have popped one or two circles up with foam tabs for added interest. As no stamps are allowed in the Unstampabelles challenges I have used a birthday sticker which came with a magazine a few years ago.

And this is the prize for this month
