Pretty in pink

Craft packages ordered =0, craft packages received =0

Do you remember be saying that, after the stress of last week, this one was going to be a little easier? Oh how wrong I was. I won’t bore you with the details but it included a lost laptop, a hotel intruder and being locked out of my house! So thank goodness it’s Friday and there will be chance to recharge my batteries before Monday strikes again.

The other week, the team at City Crafter Challenge appealed to my love of glitter. This week their challenge is appealing to my other great love – pink. I have posted many pink projects on here but am always glad of an excuse to do so. I am also going to link this up with the “something pretty” challenge at Sunday Stampers.


Too much pink, ya think? Impossible in my book! I built up some layers of pink gingham and pink floral designer papers which I edged with Worn Lipstick distress stain. I tucked in a small doilly just for contrast. To make the bunting I cut strips of ribbon, applied double sided tape to the reverse and then folded them over a piece of candy baker’s twine before trimming the ends into flags. I popped a little twine bow at either end and little pink buttons in between the flags. I couldn’t resist adding some little pink gems too.


I stamped out a cupcake in pink, cut it out and applied crystal clear glitter, plus a few more pink gems for good measure, to the frosting. I used 3d foam to attach the cupcake to a scallop circle that I punched out of pink card.


I stamped and cut out a Happy Birthday sentiment onto pink card and glued it, using hot glue, so it stands away from the card. Yep, more gems there too! I added a little pink bow, with additional tails made from green ribbon and topped the bow off with a sparkly, pink fabric flower.



I’m especially pleased with how the bunting turned out and it was super easy compared with how I’ve done it in the past when I’ve ended up sticky and cross!

  1. OMG, what have you been up to?

    Despite the turmoil you still manage to find the time and composure to produce this stunning card, I love all of the pink. Fabulous bunting and I have never seen a more perfect setting for a doily (I love that word – doily!).
