Tweetest Friends in purple

Hi everybody!!

Monday the 15th of July was the start of a new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenges and what we want you to do is use blue and/or purple tones on your projects. You still have a few days left to enter so I thought I'd show you the project I did as inspiration for this challenge. I needed one more teacher gift so I decided to make a Slip Cover box as these are super quick to make and decorate it with Tweetest Friends by Little Cottage Cuties from Whimsy Stamps.
The pretty design paper I used is by Maja Design and it's from the Vintage Spring Basics line. I used purple and white cardstock and I embossed the white decorative layer with a Birds and Swirls Cuttlebug Embossing Folder. The pretty decorative die-cut behind the image is of course cut with the largest Spellbinders Floral Oval Nestabilities.
The Wild Orchid Crafts products I've used are:
A close up of the pretty image.  As always colored with Copic Markers and 3D paper pieced. I decided not to paper piece the little flowers.

Hope you like my project and will get inspired to join us at Wild Orchid Challenges. Have a great day everybody!!!

It's a Wee One

Hi everybody,

Today I want to show you a card I created with Wee Stamps' Wee One (also available as a rubber stamp at Whimsy Stamps). 
Isn't this stamp just gorgeous? The pretty papers that I used are KaiserCraft Bundly of Joy Collection combined with pink and kraft colored cardstock and some corrugated kraft cardstock. Everything has been distressed with distress ink, Picket Fence Crackle Paint and frantage. The cute corners are actually two Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Square die cuts cut into four. The ribbon was actually attached to a baby gift basket I received when my youngest daughter Amy was born five years ago. I thought it was very pretty and took it off before reusing the basket. The sentiment is an old one from Elzybells which unfortunately no longer exists. The baby feet charm is from Marianne Design Newborn Charms. Of course I added some gorgeous Wild Orchid Craft flowers, used are:
Pink set of Mixed Flowers (the different sets of mixed flowers seem to be completely sold out)
Pink Mulberry Paper Wild Roses 30 mm
Mixed Pink Carnation Flowers
Ivory Open Roses 25mm

A close up of the adorable little image, as always colored with Copic Markers and completely 3D paper pieced.

Have a great day everybody!

A Fairy dark card ...

Hi there everyone!
I have made a dark card I wanted to share today. I've used a lot of the grey products

Have a lovely day all!

Hugs, Mindy

Baby gift-boxes with daisies

Hi everybody!

Last monday was the start of a new challenge at Wild Orchid Challenges and this time we want you to use daisies on your project. I actually have two samples to show you today since I decided to create baby gift-boxes for this challenge for not one but two little girls that were born on June 12th, two little twin girls named Lisa and Aurelia.
The adorable stamp is by Whipper Snapper Designs and it's called Floppy Bunny Trio. The pretty papers are from the Rosa Dotje A Flower a day Blauw/Roze paper pad combined with pink and kraft colored cardstock. I do believe the Rosa Dotje paper is Dutch so I'm not sure if it's available in other countries. The letters are cut out of Joy Crafts fine corrugated cardboard with Sizzlits Round-a-bout dies. The ticket with the birthdate is from the Whimsy Stamps Friendship Ticket Sentiments set. The charms are Marianne Design Newborn Charms.

The Wild Orchid Crafts products that I used (for the two boxes) are:
Pink Set of Mixed Flowers (these aren't for sale at the moment but I hope they'll be back after WOC has moved)
Guipure White Lace (around the rim of the lid of the box for Lisa)
Shocking Pink 12mm Satin Ribbon (around the Aurelia box)
Baby Pink 12mm Satin Ribbon (around the Lisa box)
And the gifts we got the little ladies:
Hope that inspires you to join us at Wild Orchid Challenges! And can't wait to bring these boxes to the new mummy and daddy.

Have a great day everybody!!!
