Today I am sharing my DT creation for Unstampabelles here
You still have a couple of days to get your entry in
Tic Tac Toe
TWIST journal about the decision making process
Instructions for the Peeps:
- You must chose only one row across or down or diagonally – remember three in a row
- You have to choose only these three items from the grid to add to your work
- a good rule to remember: you cannot choose for example ribbon, string and stickers, as none of the edges of these boxes touch
Yes, there is a prize:
I have gone diagonal top right to bottom left – flowers – bling – string
I have used MFT rolled roses, SU Boutique Bunch & Botanical Blooms and SU petite flower punch. I added gold string (twine) behind the flowers before finishing off with Bo bunny Jewels.
Here is a closer pic
I kept this card fairly simple as it was sent off to a friend in sympathy on the passing of her mother.
The day started nice and sunny and has now turned grey with hail here in Melbourne. We do truely get 4 seasons in one day on occasion. Marvelous Melbourne 🙂
As we are in the grip of 21st Season here I have yet another 21st card and gift bag to share.
I have used SU Best year ever paper and co ordinating coastal cabana cs to create the gift bag and card. I used the gift bag punch board with paper 17 cm x 30.5 cm for the closure of this bag I used the paper flower made from packing paper and scallop circle punches. For the card I used SU balloon framelits, SU Thoughtful banners and Uniko Classic Numbers stamp sets – the perfect size to stamp onto the balloon. The twine is also coastal cabana.
I am linking this up to the current challenge at Uniko – Challenge #35
There are songs both about turning “21” and balloons.
Until next time
After my not following the rules for The Colour Tree Challenge I decided to have another go. I also have no excuses for not having a go at the Spring Planter Box tutorial Bronwyn kindly gave all participants from Challenge #1.
This will be given to a friend who had a birthday last week – late I know but we wont see each other til next week so all OK.
I have used the correct colours this time for the challenge at TCTC #4 here
Instead of stamping with the hardwood stamp set I inked up my Sizzix Woodgrain embossing folder with crumb cake ink (an allowable neutral I think) and embossed the pieces. I also substituted in Sizzlits Little leaves die which I used to make the leaves from Pool Party Cardstock. I created the flowers on calypso coral and daffodil delight cardstock with calypso coral marker and daffodil delight ink. I used SU Petite Petals and SU Flower shop stamp sets. I created the little Happy Birthday tag using SU Endless Birthday Wishes stamp set stamped in tip top taupe and die cut with Tag and Labels Framelits on very vanilla cardstock. The twine is white Baker’s twin. I die cut the butterflies using Bold Butterflies Framelits.
Thanks for stopping by
What glorious sunshine today.
I made these over the weekend and am linking these up before the challenges close then I am off to enjoy some sun with my latest book club book and my newest knitting project. Ms 15 & Ms 10 are occupying themselves singing while Mr 17 is at school for practice exams and Ms 19 is at uni.
Scrapbook boutique September challenge here
I stamped MFT Contemporary Roses stamp set with SU Pink Pirouette and pretty in pink ink. The leaves are coloured with SU certainly celery marker before stamping. I created the tag with a tag punch and finished with some twine. Not sure if I will use it as a tag or will add it to a card front later.
Uniko Fall/Autumn with optional twist of thanks here
For this tag I used images from Uniko Flower Power #5 (sentiment), #6 and Background builders vines stamped and inked with SU Pumpkin Pie, Tangelo Twist & wild wasabi ink/markers. Again I created the tag with a tag punch. This time I added a second tag at the back from Uniko Digital paper. Again finished with some twine.
I also have a card to share I have made for a friend’s birthday using Art Impressions Girlfriends stamp coloured with alcohol markers, fussy cut out and layered onto uniko digital paper.
Thanks for stopping by
Until next time
There is still a little time left to join the challenge at Uniko. I decided the little set of cards I made a little while back needed a cardholder. As the original set of cards used Uniko stamps and digi paper I used the same on the card holder. I started by flipping the sketch around.
The floral paper is a digital one from Uniko. The sentiment is from All Occasion Sentiment #1, the cardstock is SU Coastal Cabana and the butterflies are punched using SU Bitty Butterfly punch. I made a closure for the cardholder using a brad and SU Pool Party Twine.
and a couple more pics

Hope you are having a great week
Thanks for popping in
I have made this card for my friend who is celebrating a birthday early next week. I will pop this on the outside of her gift.
I used SU Easy Events coloured using SU Pool Party, Pretty in Pink and Marvy Le Plume Cream Yellow. I had some darker pink ink on a block from another project which I used to highlight the cupcake wrapper – can’t remember which ink colour it was – sorry. I added glitter to the cup cake icing and Kaisercraft pearls to the cake stand. I punched it out using Fiskars 2″ punch and added another circle using Lifestyle Crafts nesting circles. Finished the bottom with SU Pool Party Baker’s Twine. The cardstock is from my stash.
I am going to enter this in this weeks Sunny Challenges Challenge.
If you are in Melbourne today I hope you have managed to stay out of the wind.
Hi. Hope everyone’s day has got off to a great start. Student free day so have my youngest home today plus I am expecting some tradesmen any time now! We all know how predictable tradies are right?
Anyway I have two cards to share today.
The first is for The Greeting Farm Fresh Friday Challenge Paper Piercing. This is a technique I only tried a little while ago and I am enjoying it.
I have used The Greeting Farm Miss Anya Collection along with sentiment from PTI Train Tracks. I used Twine from SU, cardstock from American Crafts and Pebbles. A Fiskars border punch and tag die from life style crafts. This card is for a 13 year old girl I think she came up alright.
The second card is a first for me. This is the first pinwheel I have ever made. I was surprised at how easy it was. I used DSP from MME Miss Caroline for the pinwheel and a brad from my stash along with a tooth pick for the handle. I used PTI Tiny Tags and die stamped with SU Regal Rose and Soft Suede tied with Blossom twine from the The Twinery. The other cardstock is also from my stash. I punched out butterflies from kraft cardstock using carl and armada punches. Finished off with some rhinestones and hand drawn butterfly trials.
Thanks for stopping by.
