MDUC #114


Well here we are again for another MDUC challenge and I almost freakin forgot to post it!  Had my card done early in the week, took pictures but just forgot to write the post.  HOLI COW REALLY?!!  Remembered an hour before - and I really wonder how.  AND I was making a card!!  ha ha ha!!  Phew occupied or what?!  I am soooo laughing at myself right now!

SO this week at MDUC we were asked to use this photo for inspiration, which is so pretty.  Immediately my mind went to Kaisercrafts "Chanteuse Collection" filled with greens, pinks and browns. 

I wanted to do more then just a card and who wouldn't want a gift on their birthday anyway?  So I made this cute little box filled with Hershey Kisses.  It's made so you can fit Dove chocolates inside but I went to 3 different stores and couldn't find any!!  Pout pout!  I found this tutorial done by Katie from Clearly iStamp and instead of using the biggest nesties, I used my Silhouette.  Way easier for me!!

Instead of using a button as Katie had in the tutorial, I made a handle instead.  The sentiment is from Magnolia and the butterfly is a Maya Road chipboard butterfly that I distressed in green ink and then added Crackle Accents. 

I wanted to try something a little different and went with the center step card (tutorial here) but  just added an inch to make it wider.  I had fun with this one!!

Ok so since I'm a little behind today I won't be adding any details but please don't hesitate to ask if you'd like some information.

Today I'm going to enter my card into the following:
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes
Card Makin' Mama's - Let's Get Punchy
Addicted to Stamps - Anything But a Card - my chocolate box
Top Tip Tuesday - Birthday Time
Enjoy your weekend all!!  Hugs!

Geez girlfriend! It's a good thing you didn't forget to post this because its fan-FREAKIN-tastic and I would never forgive you for keeping it from us!!! That box is to die for- and not just because it contains chocolate- lol :) And then you top it off with the card which is incredible...and I LOVE how you've colored Tilda, just stunning. So, in case you can't tell, I'm pretty much in love with it all :) Hugs! Katie

Wow...I said "WOW!" These are so fantastic buddie! (Do you have any Hershey's left over...LROL) There's just so much to look at on these things! I love the shape of the box & I love the ribbon you used on the handle. The flower arrangements on bother are STUNNING & you're so craft with that cheese cloth! Wow!

Angela said...

Okay girl I am tired of looking at your creations!! Yeah right!! This is so beautiful and I can look at it all day long. I love how you are not afraid to add a lot of embellishments and you make them all look so wonderful together. I am afraid if I add a whole bunch of embellishments I'll run out of supplies. LOL Really I am just not as good as it as you are.
P.S I love looking at your creations, and it also makes me sick at the same time. LOVE Them ALL!!!
