I am still working on finding new inspiration. I love making cards, but I do not want to lose my zeal for card making so every so often I need to do something different. Here lately I've been trying my hand at some 3D projects. This project was inspired by the monthly challenge over at Mo's Digital Challenge Blog where challenge #254 is Anything Goes with a Mo Manning Stamp and this month the optional challenge was something tasty. I tried to depict that in both the project and the image chosen. I have yet to get a ton of Mo Manning stamps, but one of the first I bought was "what's cooking". I was so glad to finally use this on a project.
I chose to make a cupcake box that is in the shape of a cake slice. I used my Cricut Explore and the Sweet Tooth Boxes Cartridge for the template. Then I decorated with my Digital Stamp, ribbon, and flowers.
I do hope you gained a little inspiration too! Thanks for reading!

I've been on a search for some new inspiration lately. I love making cards, but I have been wanting to do something different. So I've been spending lots of time searching blogs and websites trying to find something different and fun. I stumbled across this project and couldn't wait to do it. This project is called a sliderbox.
I got the template from Splitcoaststampers. At first I followed the directions explicitly, but when my finished project didn't turn out, I did some research and found someone in the comments that made some tweaks. I tweaked my project a bit, and it worked just fine.
I found that instead of using a strip Plastic Grocery Sack that a Satin Ribbon worked even better and was much easier to use adhesive with. I also found that making the slider card a little more narrower held the slider base in place. If none of this makes sense, read through the Splitcoaststampers tutorial, and it will.
So after I got my Sliderbox to work, I had the fun privilege to decorate it (My FAVORITE PART!!)
The challenge over at Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog is "Paws for Thought." Since I LOVE Christy's images I figured I would use one for my box anyway. I thought about using one of her super cute Doggy images, but I recently lost my sweet, 3 year old, miniature dachshund - Fudge - due to a HORRIBLE accident while we were away from home for a week, and I am struggling very much still with it all so a Doggie was too painful at this point. I chose to do something different. I used a Hedgehog.
I thought the image called for some reds and pinks, So I thought the red an pink flower paper that I picked up from Michaels was a nice touch, and I even put a Hedgehog on the secret slider!
And Here's the whole thing slid out. The drawer is perfect to put some goodies or a gift card.
I hope you enjoyed my card because I sure enjoyed working on it!!! Oh, and another side note, I made a new watermark too. I thought I needed something with my website on it. Cute eh!?
