Take 1 sheet die cuts.....

Morning All! hope everyone is OK, Ive been back from my holidays for nearly a week but have been spending quite a bit of time painting the new extension! Still it is beginning to look good and I can't wait for it all to be finished so I can get back to 'normal'! Enough waffling from me, here are my latest creations:

I'd like to enter these into the following challenges:

Charisma cardz: Use Die cuts

Paperplay Challenges: Pink to make the boys wink!

PaperCutz challenge: Anything goes!

I was having a bit of a browse through my stash and I came across this die cut sheet sheet of cutie bears from Lili of the Valley which I bought at the Make it show earlier in the year. I have just ordered the stamp from the website along with some other goodies from their new releases, so while I am waiting for them to arrive I thought I should use up some of the die cuts.

I made the card first using the sketch on LOTV. I cut out the die cut with Nestabilities labels 12 set, inked the edges and added some glitter to the butterflies wings. The papers are 'Henbury Lane' by Papermania.

When I had finished the card I sat looking at the scraps on my desk and decided to make a little tag to go with it using one of the smaller die cuts. The background paper on this one is DCWV (I think) and the flowers are by Prima with a bit of added glamour dust.

I'd like to enter the tag into the challenge at Die Cut Dreams: Use a tag but no stamping at all!

While I was looking through my stash I also found a paper mache box, so that also got decorated. It was so much fun, I haven't decorated a box in ages and I'd forgotten how much I enjoy doing them. Again the papers are from 'Henbury Lane' and the ribbons and pearls are from Hobbycraft. The inside is painted with white acrylic paint and then glossed over with Sparkle Mod Podge to give it some extra glittery glamour!

I'd like to enter the box into the following challenges:
Crafts & Me: Petals and pearls
Allsorts: Minature 3"
Simon Says Challenge: Make a gift (My plan is to give the box to a crafting friend with some goodies inside - flowers, charms etc)
Good news too - I still have 6 diecuts left to play with!
Thanks for looking and enjoy the rest of the weekend!

P.S. Can anyone else smell gloss paint?.....
