Happy Birthday!

Allsorts are celebrating there 5th Birthday this month, so I thought I would pop this into the challenge.
I stamped the flowers on a scrap of orange card and cut them out, then layered onto some washi tape. The centres are Candi. I then stamped the sentiment and layered onto matching orange card and then onto white base card. I would also like to enter at

I have had great fun creating this box card. I cut the large stars and balloons on my Cameo, and also used vinyl to cut the 'congrats' and adhered it to acetate.
The smaller balloons and stars were cut with punches. I ran the background paper through my cuttlebug and swiped them with an inkpad to highlight the pattern, then used a red 'Kindyglitz' to outline.
I would like to enter in the following challenges

Southern Girls - Sparkle and shine and bling 
My Craft Spot - Congrats

Flower Power

Today's card is inspired by one of the projects at the Paper Artsy blog this week, by Joanne Wardle. I really like her style of cards. I have stencilled my spots, and stamped the branch with an old foam stamp, then added a crochet flower and 2 paper flowers. The sentiment is a stamp from Darkroom Door.

Back Again!

I have been missing from my blog for about six weeks, and this lovely vase of flowers was started before we went away. I have now finished it, and ready to enter some challenges.
The design is from my favourite site - Cardmaking Paradise (the link is over on the right) I cut it on my Cameo, and stamped the flowers and the band with a purple ink, and ran them through my cuttlebug with the swiss dots folder to give some texture. The little leaves are a Memory Box die, and I added the label to finish it off. Of course it folds flat for posting!
