Birthday Slider Box

Just over a week ago it was the Pink By Design July Stamp Release but I was at work and had to miss it :(

Darn work, always getting in the way 

Well that night they made a Slider Box, perfect for many things. It's fun, quick and easy to make and the only limit is your imagination when it comes to decorating the box.

So here is my version of the box.... a Birthday Slider Box.

 I used 110# Cardstock that I purchased at Staples for the slider box to make sure the box was nice and sturdy. Then added some Recollections cardstock and DCWV Birthday pattern paper.

I used my Martha Stewart Balloon punch, attached 3 together and stamped my sentiment right on the balloons. The sentiment is from Pink by Design's April Stamp of the Month - My Favorite Kind.

I used some Divine Twine in Aqua for the balloon string.

Now slide it open and SURPRISE!! 

I added some tissue paper and some candy fish  for some sweet birthday wishes!!!

Yummm. I may have had to try a few for quality control purposes

The inside sentiment is from Pink by Design's Say it Sweet.

What a great little box that you can use for any occasion, just create, decorate and fill with whatever your heart desires.

I will be linking this to Link Up Tuesday over at Sarah Hamer's Blog.

Having a Ball!!!

Hi everyone. Well I have finally gotten around to making a post. I was away camping enjoying what little summer we have had.

I love the outdoors and like to spend as much time as possible out there when I can.

The card that I made this time is one of my favorite places to be in the summer...the Beach. I used the Cricut Paper Dolls Teen Scene cartridge.

I cut the dolls, bathing suits and hair all at 5". Since I can not draw at all I used the Peachy Keen Dolly Dumplins Face Asst. stamp set for her and the Peachy Keen Groom Faces for him.

I cut some waves from Life's a Beach Cricut cartridge and took some Sookwang tape and some decorative sand that I had lying around to make the beach. The beach ball is from the Pink by Design Just Beachy stamp set, stamped, colored with Copics and cut out.

The  sentiment is from the Simply Everything stamp set by Pink by Design.

I added some American Crafts ribbon, a Recollections flip flop brad and some real baby shells that I got at a second hand store to finish the card.

For the inside of the card I used one of the left over waves, stamped the sun from Stampendous Summer Scene stamp set with Memento Dandelion Ink and then cut it out.

The inside sentiment is from the Pink by Design Summer Vacation stamp set.

Well I hope you all get to have a ball and spend many fun days at the beach.

I'm entering this card into the Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge #28 - Anything Goes.

You should head on over there and check out what everyone has been up to.

Get your sparkle on... PbD05

This week's Ink It Pink Challenge is all about SPARKLE

You can use whatever form of sparkle or bling that you choose.... metallic paper, Viva Decor, rhinestones, glitter and the list goes on.

I chose to use Glitter Ritz, my favorite glitter as my sparkle.

I started by stamping , Pink By Design's Cloudy Day Background stamp in Brilliance Pearlescent Sky Blue ink.

I then cut out some clouds in different sizes in white and dark blue, using the Create a Critter Cricut cartridge. I then stamped my sentiment with Pink By Design's Simply Everything.

I pulled out my Martha Stewart Balloon punch and punched a bunch of balloons out of Sookwang Be Creative Tape.

Then punched out matching cardstock to the color of glitter that I chose to use and stuck the tape to the cardstock.

I pulled off the paper backing and glittered away using several different colors of Glitter Ritz and let me tell you...I got glitter everywhere....even on my face.. lol.

Here is a close-up picture of the balloons... I used small punches for the heart and star and attached them Glossy Accents.

I added  some Pink By Design Divine Twine in Black Licorice to tie the balloons together.

For the inside of the card I used the clouds that I cut out earlier and used the Pink By Design October's Stamp of the Month - Friends to the End in Brilliance Pearlescent Orchid.

You should head over to Pink By Design's Blog and take a look at what everyone has been up to. Hope your day is full of sparkle and bling.
