Star Wish box cu 09397
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs June Release! Such fabulous dies & stamp/die duo sets! Did you order yours yet?
Star Wish Box 09401
For my project, I created a fun surprise box. The Surprise Box die makes it so easy to do & it’s a blast figuring out which dies to use when decorating it. I went with a birthday stars & presents theme. And I may have gone a little over the top w/ the layers. My box is actually very sturdy as I used a very heavy white c/s for the inside & cut another white layer for the outside (I wanted the inside to be as pretty as the outside w/ the embossing) then added all the die cut paper rectangles, stars & presents around the outside.

This is a better picture of the outside & underside of the flaps. The only problem w/ this box, is how to photograph it. So I took a bunch of pics. Star Wish Box closed IMG0317
The balloons, stars & Wish are so sparkly in person! There’s even a little cupcake tucked under the Wish. I will tell you, to make the Pierced Rectangles & plain Rectangle layers on the outside, I did have to do a little resizing to make them smaller. But that’s pretty easy..just be sure to match up the pierced holes when cutting the other end. Star Wish Box top 09403
I also added another long liner to the outside of the back to use as sort of the inside of a card, where I could write a little message. And this all folds flat-ish to fit in a standard A2 or A6 envelope.

Cupcake Love2 cu 08322
My card today is a combo of the Clean & Simple (CAS361), Color (CC567), and Sketch (SC577) Challenges. The CAS is to make a sweet treat, the colors are mint, strawberry & espresso & my version of the sketch is a little morphed. Instead of the straight band mine is a curved banner & I had to move the greeting underneath.
Cupcake Love2 08323
So I stamped, colored & cut out the cupcake (my panel 3) & added some stickles to the icing. The white bg (my panel 2) was dry embossed & I had a big heart punch that fit inside the heart centerpiece almost exactly (my panel 5), so I sponged on green ink & put it behind the cupcake. The banner (my panel 4) was die cut & stamped using the pistachio & worn lipstick inks & I did remove a couple of the flags to make it shorter.  The larger layer (my panel 1)is actually just a frame that was sitting there, so I embossed it w/ frame folder & sponged the green ink over the top of it.

These are the Copics I used to color the cupcake

Cupcake Party cu 05885
For the Clean & Simple Challenge (CAS322) today on Splitcoast, the challenge to make a card with a  cupcake on it.  I had this big grin piggie & a fun “Hey, Cupcake!” greeting. So as I’m putting my card together, I start thinking…I need a really little cupcake. What to do? I started looking at my punches, figuring I should be able to put something together.  The bottom of the cupcake is a little teacup punch. I cut off the handle & drew a few lines to make the cake part. The frosting part is a little cloud punch & I drew a few lines to look like frosting. I had a little candle punch, so that was handy. I think it’s just the right size!

The Wordy Birthday greeting was stamped 3 times on the background & I added a narrow strip of black to the upper & lower edges then added my cupcake bearing pig on top. I used a black glaze pen to add the 3 black dots in the lower right corner. The finished card is 4.25 x 5.50 and these are the Copics I used.
