CLEAR BUNNY BOX FOR EASTER!

Easter is this weekend. Are you all sorted?? I had these little Lindt chocolate bunnies left over from class last week and wanted to make a special box for them.  I will show you what I created and I have the tutorial below to make your own.

It’s a little shallow box with a clear Acetate lid on top.  I realised one of the bunnies was a bit squashed but hey! I went with it still!! 🙂

TO MAKE YOUR OWN CLEAR BUNNY BOX

I have included Metric and Imperial but please check the Imperial measurements first. 🙂

Base:

15.4cm x 5.4cm. (6 1/8″ x 2 1/8).

Score at 1.2cm (1/2″) on all 4 sides.

Cut up on the small score lines on opposite ends.  Fold on all the scored lines. Add adhesive.  I used Fast Fuse.  Assemble your box.

Lid: 

*For Imperial measurements please test them first.

17cm x 14cm (6 3/4″ x 5 1/2″)

On the 17cm (6 3/4″) side score at 2cm and 15cm (1 3/16″and 5 7/8″)

On the 14cm side (5 1/2″) side score at  5.5cm and 8.5cm (2 3/16″ and 3 3/8″).

*Apologies for the photo quality.  It is a bit hard with the lighting and the shiny acetate.

Cut up on the small score lines on each side.  Fold on the score lines.  The acetate is hard to fold over but run along the folded line with your bone folder to press it down. Add your adhesive to the small tab at the side and down one of the side tabs.  Adhere together to form a box.

Hope that is clear?? Decorate as you like.

I wrapped around some Sweet Sugarplum Ruched ribbon, then decorated it with the diecut flower with the Stylish Stems Framelits.  The sentiment is from the Little Cuties set, cut with the Stitches Shapes Framelits and a small Layering Ovals Framelits.  I actually had these little “bits” on my desk from a project I didn’t end up using so that worked well.

I hope you like the cute box?? There is just enough time to make your own.

AVANT GARDEN AND SOME NEW CHOICES FOR SALE-A-BRATION!

Say What???

Yes! Stampin’ Up! are so generous.  New products choices have just been announced for Sale-A-Bration AND they are catalogue products.  How cool is that!  I will tell you about that but first I wanted to share this card for you using the Sale-A-Bration set Avant Garden.

I haven’t used this set nearly enough over the last few months.  (Maybe I was a little discouraged because I have lost the little stamen stamp).  Never mind,  there are still some gorgeous creations you can make without that little stamp.  This card is another card we are making at Card Class this Friday along with the Dragonfly card I shared last post.  Check back on the earlier posts if you want to see that.

I was inspired by a card on Pinterest to stamp the flowers as a background.  This card took a life of it’s own after that.

If you are in the Wollongong area come and join in the class this Friday 24th 10am or 7pm.  Lots of fun and creativity.

Now to those new products Stampin’ Up! are offering.

For every $90 order you can choose one of these catalogue choices as your Free option. Here they are. Which choice do you like? Paper, Embossing Folder or the Washi Tape.

Just a note:  If you are ordering Online (which is HERE by the way!) and you are choosing one of these please be sure to use the Item Codes shown below.

I need to get creating with this set more before it goes.  How about you?

Have a good rest of the week,

Jenny

DELICATE DETAILS AND DETAILED DRAGONFLY!

I can’t believe there is only about 10 days left of Sale-A-Bration.  Seriously where has the time gone!

This Friday at our Card Class we will be using some of the loved Sale-A-Bration items for one last time and make 3 Classy cards.

If you are local to Wollongong come along.  Here are the details.

WHEN: Friday 24th March at 10am or 7pm.

COST:    $15  (extra $5 to use my adhesives).

Please RSVP by Thursday 23rd March.  Book early to reserve your seat.

Here is just one of the cards we will be making.  This is using the Sale-A-Bration set Delicate Details.  It pairs so well with the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits.

This card was inspired by a card I made right back at the beginning of Sale-A-Bration.  If you missed that card then see the post HERE.

Have a great week,

Jenny

NAILED IT IN RED!

I was looking for ideas on Pinterest for the Nailed It set.  I came across this card that I liked.  I changed a couple of things with it.

To Recreate it:

Adhere Real Red card mat to the Black card base.

Cut a strip of the Crumb Cake with a line of the screws alternating the direction of them.  Sponge touches of black on the screws.  Adhere the strip on to the Red card mat and adhere the screws back into the gaps.  Cut a strip of the Crumb Cake with the ruler measure die. Adhere the strip on to the card also.

Stamp the screwdriver image on to Thick Whisper White card with Black Stazon and then colour it with the Red and Crumb Cake inpads and the Aquapainter.  Loop some Silver thread around behind the screwdriver before adhering it to the card with Dimensionals.

Stamp the “Enjoy You Day” Stamp from the Badges and Banners stamp set and punch it out with the Best Badge punch. Adhere that on to the card with Dimensionals.  It doesn’t hurt to add a little bling to the boys card either with a Rhinestone. 🙂

I will share some more cards with the Nailed It bundle again soon. Stay tuned. Hope your weekend is going awesome.

NAILED IT WITH URBAN UNDERGROUND!

I have a class on this weekend with the Nailed It Bundle.  They make some great masculine cards.  I thought I would show you one of the cards that we will be making.

The base card is Delightful Dijon.  Funny, this colour has been around for nearly 2 years and all of a sudden I have been using so much of it.  There is only a couple of months left with this colour.

On a white card mat I added 2 different strips from the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper.  The sentiment is from the set Confetti Celebration.

I stamped the 3 tools from the Nailed It set on to Thick Whisper White using the Black StazOn.  They were then coloured with the inkpads and Aquapainter.  These were raised up off the card with Dimensionals.  Finish the card off with the Urban Underground Embellishments. (Bling for Blokes!!). 🙂

I will show you some other cards with this bundle over the next couple of days.

Jenny

BEAUTIFUL YOU IN THE MOONLIGHT!

Last Saturday I held a ‘Beautiful You’ class showing lots of techniques that could be used with the very versatile set.  It was very well received I think.  I was busy last week playing a lot with this set to create some samples.  I thought I would share some of the projects this week.

I was inspired by a card I saw on Pinterest stamping it on black card so I really wanted to give it a go.  Here is the card.

beautiful-you-moonlight

It is stamped with the White Craft Ink Pad.  I thought I might have had to heat emboss it in White but I think it turned out crisp enough.  For the moon, I punched out a circle from a Post It Note with the 2″ circle punch and laid the negative on the card in position and sponged ink over the punched circle. I then added a few highlights with the Blender Pen and ink.

The black card was adhered to Sweet Sugarplum and then to a Black card base.  I added some Rhinestones to finish it off.  I thought I would just keep it simple.

I will be back with some more cards with this great set later in the week.
