we all had to do file folders to go inside the lunch pail, and this was my entry.
On the outside (which was covered with SEI) I used my large Stampington Cube, a Paper Artsy image and one of the butterflies images from the Walk in the Garden Cartridge (Cricut), oh and a load of Hero Art 3mm gems. The whole thing was edged with Whispers Dye Ink in Plum.
The inside was painted with Twinkling H20’s and then stamped with Hero Arts Butterfly Border and a very old swirly stamp, then a piece of cream ric rac and a purple and white hydrangea by Angel Kisses.

isn’t the cutest thing you ever did see? Lovely Clare is just so talented. I’ve done my entry now and it’s gone flying off to Sid, who is the last stop, and then it will be back with her after it’s long journey round the UK STampers.
I’m finally catching up on some of my commitments, this is from the UK STampers challenge a good while ago – Define your Space – in which we had to do a label, hanger, etc., to define something in our stamping/scrapping area.
This is my little contribution – and I’ve learnt a salutory lesson – punch the holes with the Crop-adile before you stick on the blasted buttons, so you know that you have enough room!
I used a wood coaster that I’ve had hanging around for ages, and painted it with Rich Gold Jo Sonja’s.
Added a strip of Sweeter “Life in Bloom” paper across the middle, and then added MM rub-ons onto white cardstock (PM White), and covered them completely with Marvy Metallic Gold pen.
Stamped the small postal image from Aud’s Circle Sentiments sheet in Blazing Red StazOn, and coloured the hearts in with Green Gelly Roll pen by Sakura.
The flower is a white Angel kisses small hydrangea with a centre of soft green Perlidoodles.
Along the top seam of the pattern paper, I added PM brown buttons tied with DMC embroidery thread in alternating green and orange. Plus one orange and one brown button also tied with thread near the postal image.
The green ribbon is by Anna Griffin, which I got in a QVC kit ages ago, and has been mouldering at the bottom of the ribbon basket since then.
This is partially completed, for the UK STampers Outside the Box Challenge.
See UK STampers Cyberblog for details on it.
not copious amounts of stamping on it, but I wanted to leave it fairly un-adorned for the receipient (Chicken Licken) to add her own touches.
I’ve taken shots of more of it, but we’ve had really bad thunder storms all evening, and this is the first time I’ve managed to get on line.
I’ll post more – with a description – tomorrow.
we had such a busy weekend, with the out laws here on Saturday, then Lydia diving on Sunday, that I only had a tiny bit of time to me for crafting.
Ditton really the rest of the week so far, but I have done the odd bit here and there.
Mostly, I’ve been working on the UT Stampers ATC kits that arrived a few weeks ago. I’ve now done all of them – the last two are in various states of drying on my desk.
Tomorrow I will need to photograph them (early as possible for the light) and then get them loaded up to the slide show we’ve got for all participants of the swap – I don’t really want to put them on my blog til they’ve been shown on there though.
I have had a blast doing these – it’s really nice just to rip open a packet and HAVE to use the bits inside (with a few added extras where needed) – and not to hunt everything down from scratch.
I’ve got just my own kit left, but I’d already done a sample of that one – so if anyone want it. Just send me your addy and I pop it in the post.
so I’ve now got 10 lovely little ATC kits to put together – such fun, as they are all so different, and I think they easier than shuffling through mountains of stash to find co-ordinating bits – all the hard work has been done.
We (that is Sid and I) have organised a slide show for all the participants to put there offerings into, and I will post a link to it when we are all done.
The next swap I have on UK STampers is a Velvet-ize Book swap, just direct swapping with a partner, and I’m seriously looking forward to that one.
I also have two more CJ’s to get done….problem is today, I seem to be easily distracted!
first attempt at last week’s #2 colour challenge, which is a quick birthday card for my FIL. I really suck at very masculine cards/layouts I’m afraid – this is as butch as I can do.
Stamps: all from Aud’s new Sheet (Cat & House).
Ink: Starry, Starry Night Whispers Dye Ink, and Sakura Gelly Roll pen in the green and clear.
The card is a pre-made one in Light Blue from Papermania, pattern paper is by Chatterbox.
