The Shabby tea room Challenge #214

Its time for another challenge over at the shabby tea room Smile Where is the time going? It only seems 2 minutes since it was Christmas and now it’s the middle of April already. Time is just passing by so fast.

This week in the tea room the challenge is ‘Easter Sweetness’


Create a project inspired by the photo and use spots and/or stripes.

Our sponser this week is the cutting cafe . I used the Easter window cards set For my card.

I love the easter egg shaped aperture in the card. My idea for this card is that iam going to attach a bag of mini eggs inside so you can see them through the aperture. I thought that it would make a cute easter gift. (Bag of mini eggs were not available when i took the photos as i sort of ate the bag that i had lol) So i just need to get another bag Smile

The stamp that i used is an old forever friends bear stamp and he has a pair of bunny ears on. I used some flowersoft on his bunny ears to add a little texture and make them look fluffy.

Speaking of bunnies yesterday we added two little bunnies to our family Smile They are the cutest littlest things, Patches and buttons (Named by Chloe) I will take a few pics of them in a couple of days Smile

The Shabby tea room

Ooh at last…

My internet has been playing up and i have been unable to post anything, so iam a little late with this weeks Shabby tea room challenge Here is this weeks inspiration picture along with the theme ‘Pretty in pink’



This weeks sponsers are DRS Designs I chose to use the lovely Berry Wreath image on my creation.

I decided to create a gift bag as i needed something to hold some chocoaltes that Chloe got for my mum for Mothers day.

I coloured each of the berries on the image with a pink copic pen. Although you can’t see it in the photo i have glittered the twigs/branches of the wreath.

I also glittered up the flowers. Die cut a little bird to sit on the wreath. His wing and the butterfly were cut from felt

I just had to include a bit of pom pom trim Smile

Why not Pop over and have a looksie at what the other girls have created for your inspiration. Then if you feel inspired you could create something too Smile

DIY Coverplate

Thats what the challenge was this week over at PTI make it monday I really didnt think that i would be able to join in this week as i didnt think that any of the pti dies that i have would be suitable. Then i had an idea of using the button boutique button die and thought that i would have a go with that.

I used the' button boutique button stamps and one of the heart stamps from love lives here set.

I cut the love sentiment on the cricut and then gave it a few coats pf glossy accents. (Was gonna enter it into the pti blog hop, but just didnt get it finished in time)

I actually really like this idea, even just using the button die, as in the little holes you could stamp alsorts of images eg: baby, xmas theme etc.

I was thrilled to have my card from last weeks make it monday featued on their fb page Smile Thanks pti girls Smile

Papertrey blog hop

Its the March 2014 papertrey blog hop and i thought that i would join in Smile

This ia the inspiration photo


Your creation has to include something high gloss or shiny. Eg clear embossing, glossy accents or just really glossy or shiny embellies.

This is what i came up with

All my embossing stuff etc is in the craft room so i cant get to any of it, but i did have in here my glossy accents. So using the button boutique stamp set and die i made some shiny buttons by giving them 2 coats of glossy accents.


I think my black inkpad needs reviving as its not looking too black here. I liked how the black ribbon popped out against the white.
