Flowers

Morning everyone, just a quick post from me this morning, I wanted to show you some recent cards I made using Stampin Up products.

I recently bought a set of stamps called Secret Garden, you can buy these on their own or as part of a bundle where you buy the stamps and matching dies. It's a good idea buying the bundle as after you have stamped you then get a perfectly cut flower. I used some Stampin Up papers that I had a while ago, and then decorated the centre of the flowers with some flower trim, which I cut into individual flowers.




The sentiment was from another Stampin Up stamp set I had.

Happy crafting xxx

Sugar Buttons

Hi everyone it's Kanban DT time again.
This week I have made my projects from the cute Sugar Buttons Collection. You can find this collection on the Crafted By You website.
Kanban have also now got a new website Kanban Digital Crafts where you can find a back catalogue of toppers etc and there is also going to be digital stamps on there, well worth a look.

My first project is a money box that I decorated with paper from the Sugar Buttons Pretty Paper Pad 901133 and toppers from the Fairy Friends sheet 900927 and then some small Kanban Butterflies and Flowers to finish it.



My next project was a card made again using the Sugar Buttons Collection.



For this card, I used Pink Micro Gingham for the base card, and then the Lots of Sparkle Acetate overlay, the heart is cut out from Sugar Rose Background card 900932 and a topper from the Sugar Fairies sheet 900925 , and the I added a ribbon and a butterfly to finish.

Lastly another card from Sugar Buttons.



This card was made using Fairy Castle Background Card 900929 for the inside of the card, which I then covered on the outside with paper from the pad, to the front I added a ribbon and a butterfly and also a sentiment . I then took the topper sheet with the Prince & Princess on 900918 and layered them up and adhered inside the card.

This week I have made cards from the Tapestry kit , the Female Backgrounds CD ROM and Kanban's Newest Blockbuster which was a mix of 3 kits Well Wishes & Celebrations, Birth & Celebration and Love & Marriage, I hope you were able to get yours .


These two cards have been made from one topper from the Chestnut Roses topper sheet 901004, and separated between the two cards. The background papers I have printed off from the Female Backgrounds CD -CD4 . And the sentiments are from Vintage Tapestry Sentiments 901016 (one on left) and Tapestry Versus 901017 (one on right). I love the Chocolate colours of the Tapestry Kit and was able to print off matching colours from the CD. The Tapestry Kit will be available soon at Crafted By You , Kanban's new retail division.



For this card I have used the Birth & Celebration Pad 901558, a topper from the Baby Pink,Baby Blue sheet 901542 and topper and border from the Sugar & Spice sheet 901540. I just finnished it off with a large flower and bow. The colours in the Blockbuster Kits are gorgeous.
