Exploding Box Card Wedding for SHC

Hi everyone,
 Today i'm sharing an exploding wedding box card using the lovely new chip boards at Swedish house crafts.

I was absolutely made up when Suha asked me to share this.





When i saw this 3D cake i immediately had to get it as i love them for centerpieces for exploding boxes and it  also can be used for all kinds of occasions and little keepsakes/gifts. 
The design overall is just too pretty.

The cake itself is really easy to assemble with some strong glue.....
 Quick Tip: Use a  craft knife or scissors to pop the pieces out as the chipboard is quite delicate and can snap or tear easy.

Once it was assembled,  i added a few flowers to match the color combination along with some flat back pearl string around each tier.
As it was wedding themed i die cut some hearts and placed them in between the flowers . i also placed a little charm too.

Here is a close up..



Thank you to everyone for looking and i hope you  like it.

Handmade Advent Calendar

Hi all, 
A really late post but ....
Today i'm sharing this advent calendar that i made using the cute little Lawn Fawn tiny gift box die.

I watched the tutorial on this and just knew i had to try and make it!!!

I loved making this and i'm so glad it turned out quite well. I am definitely going to make more next and year and hopefully sell them.



I cut out 25 boxes in Glad tidings paper and 5 boxes with kraft card for the base . Once all assembled i used little bits of paper to adhere the boxes together to form a hexagon/circle shape.
The layers start at 7,6,5,4,3 and 1 - there is no number 2. To make the base i used 5 boxes.



I decorated it with glitter card , pearls and cut out Christmas images using the new Tim Holtz Christmas things die.


Hope you all like it

Unicorn exploding Box

Morning everyone....

 I made this Unicorn Exploding Box card a few weeks ago...
Sorry i'm a bit late posting:(



I got asked to make a magical card for a 6th birthday so i came up with this theme. The pinks and purples i thought went quite well together.
I'm so glad it turned out okay!!!

I used the lovely Avery Elle Unicorn stamps, coloured them with promarkers and added a bit of glitter.  I wanted to make a bit of scenes so used Lawn Fawn Cloud borders and Rainbow dies.
The castle is spellbinders and the sentiment is computer generated.




Card Recipe:
Bows-Cheery Lynn 
Flowers- Petite Posies


Thanks For taking the time to visit

Paper Smooches 'Space Cadet' Pop up card

Hi everyone....

This is the card i made last week, a space themed 3rd birthday pop up using Paper Smooches Stamps.

I'm actually quite pleased with how it turned out.



I coloured the images with promarkers and cut them out with the coordinating dies.
I used Carta Bella Space academy papers which makes it really bold
 To make the clouds i simply cut them with lawn fawn stitched cloud borders


Thanks for looking
