Guest designer: Shopping our stash

I'm privileged to be joining the Shopping our stash team for challenge 46: punch it out. The idea is to use at least two pumched elements.

I've used a  Martha Steward Happy Birthday punch and also one of their decorative border punches. This is also for Gingersnap GC142 spicy supply challenge: border punches

Papers are Basic Grey marrakech - I used offcuts of these papers and also some DCWV card, so this is for Pixie's crafty snippets 14. The sparkly strips across the card are from Poundland. The blue centres of the crocheted flowers are material covered brads - the surrounding outer petals were cut with a nestie and distressed with fired brick DI.

For TTC12 04 on Crafts by Carolyn forum Barbara gave us this paper as inspiration:


I've used offcuts of Basic Grey cupcake papers and DCWV birthday sentiments paper - another opportunity to venture into the playground for Pixie's crafty snippets 14.  I stamped the little Papermania bicycle stamp a few times with memento rich cocoa and added a couple of sentiments - not easy to see here - they say 'you're the best' and 'wishing you a wonderful day'
