Cute Card Thursday ~ Nip and a punch

This week on Cute Card Thursday the very sweet Alicia gave the DT a pack of her fabulous Sheetload Shortcuts to play with. She is sponsoring the challenge week and 2 lucky winners can each win a sample pack of the Sheetload Shortcut goodies!
The theme this week is to use die cuts or punches!
The gift card insert is a ready prepared gift card holder also from Sheetload Shortcuts, all you have to do is decorate! My punched items are the flowers and leaves on the front. I punched some of the larger flowers out of the acetate in the Sheetload Shortcuts sample pack. The main card is a frosted plastic card, so strong and robust, loved working with them!
I used my 7 Gypsies Notting Hill stamps to decorate the folder.
Supplies ~ Stamps - Whiff of Joy 'presents', 7 Gypsies 'Notting Hill'
Cardstock and clear blank - Sheetload Shortcuts
Punches - flowers ~ EK success and woodware, Leaves ~ L-Em

Cute Card Thursday ~ Bit o' bling

Cute Card Thursday
I am so late posting this card, been a busy weekend! I have a few things on just now so Caz is going to take over running the CCT challenge from this week! Thanks so much hun, you are a star! This week the challenge theme is Bit o' bling! I didn't really go mad with the bling did I? Was having an off day when I made this card although I do like its simplicity! The stamp is from the fabulous Whiff of Joy Summer Kit.
I did use the fantastic sketch from the Stamp Something challenge and luckily this challenge continues until this thursday june 4th! DP~ Basic Grey ~ Porcelain
