Cupcake Truck Treat Box

I couldn't resist attempting this one.  I adore the stamp set, and I thought it would be perfect to turn it into a little treat box.  Entering this one into the Just Add Ink challenge. 

Both sides of the box have the little cupcake/coffee truck.  Hoping to put a gift card to a cupcake shop or coffee shop as a gift to someone.  I had so much fun piecing this little guy together.  

And how about that frosting!  And the awning!  And the shiny tires!  And the cardboard wrapper on that coffee cup.  And the shiny shelf the cupcakes and coffee are sitting on. 

There will be another version . . . can't wait for it.

I hope you found some time to create today.

Merry Christmas

Created these cards, inspired by the challenge at Dies R Us.  I used a die from Close To My Heart along with some old patterned papers from a kit that was hanging around.  I did a version in white . . .

Used sequins to resemble ornaments and lights.  

And a version in red . . . 

 I used jewels for this version. 

I'm definitely a fan of team white!

Happy Birthday, Dude!

Inspired the "Happy Birthday Dude" prompt at Shopping Our Stash, I created a masculine card from a card kit that is my go to for masculine cards.  The stamps, dies and paper just lend themselves to cards for guys.

I love creating metal objects from a die cut using metallic embossing powder.  My shiny metal sailboat started as just white paper.  

And yes . . . ribbon isn't masculine, but the right color and how it's used makes a difference for sure. 

Go create!  :)
