Missed all the challenge dates!

Over the last week, have been diligently doing lots of challenges, then I missed most of the submission dates for one reason or another, but decided to post them anyway as I have used a few new stamps!

These two skinnies were inspired by the SCD challenge, which was a skinny with a theme of flora and fauna. I used my blobs on sticks stamp (courtesy of Wendy at the Stamp attic) on both, the butterfly and cat were from Tanda sets, the flowers were from a set I had bought ages ago and the little birds were from a little set designed by Sue Law. 5 more new stamps used!

This box ( top measures about 4.5" square) was inspired by a tutorial that I received by email recently. The top and bottom are supposed to be cut from Nestabilities dies, but I used a similar shape on a Cricut cartridge - Songbird. The box has sides 2" high and I stamped the new CS stamp around the outside of the box. I coloured 3 of the flower stamps and layered on the top of the box, adding leaves, again cut using the Cricut.
Added some distress ink around the edges of the top and bottom to give a bit of depth and hide the card sandwiched between the papers on the top and bottom. Sparkle on the flowers and leaves added with Kindyglitz.

This card was made with a sunflower stamp that I bought (as part of a set) in the UK. I coloured the flowers with copics and distressed the edges of the layer and the card with Scattered Straw DI.
