New Challenge And An Announcement

Today I have an excited news for you all! I officially can spill the bean 🙂 I am one of the member of Happy Little Stampers Design Team. Super excited to be part of this challenge blog team!


I am designing for one of their challenges called, Anything Goes With Dies. It is a NEW monthly challenge and they have another challenges that you can play all month long!

You can play along and link up your projects you created using any die cuts and to win a $15 Discount at HLS Shop. Go to the HLS Challenge Blog Here to read the full challenge rules.


And here’s my first project for Anything Goes with Dies – May Challenge using the Box – Nice and Neat Die (Neat and Tangled) and Diploma Day stamp set (Close To My Heart, retired):


After I cut the box using my WRMK – Evolution Advanced diecutting machine, I put it together using Tombow Aqua Mono Liquid Glue. I put couple clothes pins to hold the sides until they dried well. Then I added it on the card base using Scor-Tape. Then I added some tissues paper inside the box with some liquid glue to make sure it stays in place. I LOVE that tissue paper look but I thought the box needs something more.

So, I stamped some hats and scrolls from the Diploma Day stamp set using CTMH – Black Exclusive Ink Pad on the White Daisy cardstock. Then I fussy cut them using Non-Stick Micro-Tip Scissors. And using glue dots I added them like they throw out from the box. I finished it with some Clear Gems Sparkles and stamped the sentiment at the bottom of the box.

I hope you like the card as much as I do 😀 THANK YOU for stopping by today and have a fabulous day!

    By the way, I am not getting any mails on your new post, even though I am subscribed to your blog. I don’t know the reason – and because of this I am not able to check your new posts either! It would be great if you could see what the problem is..
