Some lovely medallion style stamps. Aren’t the sentiments just lovely? “You are pretty much the BEST ever”.  I think I could use this on a few cards for some special people.

Here is an idea with the corner stamp.  Using the Stamparatus it makes it so easy to line up.  I will share a video on that soon.

COUNTRY FLORAL DYNAMIC TEXTURED IMPRESSIONS EMBOSSING FOLDER

Look at the detail in this folder!

You can colour the embossed impression with some Blends ink and sponge.  That is a great way to add colour.

PAINTED BLOOMS BOXED SET!

There is only one week left of the current Stampin’ Up! Catalogue and the Occasions Catalogue.  I know there are lots of sneak peeks around of the new Catalogue but today I want to share a special project with you.  The Painted Blooms Designer Series Paper in the Occasions Catalogue is just so gorgeous and it saddens me that I haven’t used enough of it yet.  I had this idea in my head last week and just had to get this idea working before the week was out.

Firstly, I made the cards.  In the pack of Painted Blooms DSP there is a sheet with a gorgeous flower garden scene.  What could you really do with a sheet like this??? It just seems too nice to cut into it.  I saw this idea on Patty Bennett’s blog to cut the sheet equally and make a card set.  So I did just that!!  Here are my cards.

P1160748

Laying out all the cards like this you can see the lovely image.  It does seem such a shame to cut it up but it does make a gorgeous card set.  I changed the sentiments on my cards to the ones Patty had on her blog.  The bases for the cards were either Blackberry Bliss, Pool Party, Wild Wasabi or Rose Red.  I used ‘Perfect Pennnants’ for the sentiments in the top row.  If you have a look under the sentiment, I punched out a circle using the 1 3/8″ circle punch, cut it in half and adhered that under the sentiment to layer it..  The sentiments for the cards in the bottom row were from ‘Wetlands’ set.  I cut this out with the smallest banner die in the Banner Framelits set and I hand cut a narrow banner to adhere under that.

Now after making this card set I needed something nice to put them in.  I wanted a window gift box. I came across this idea from Chiaki on Stampingpro.  I used the Dressup Card Box listed HERE on the instruction Sheets.  I did change the measurements. (It took a little fiddling!). The Australian card bases are larger in size than the US and the envelopes I had were larger too (mine weren’t Stampin’ Up! ones – shh!). I will tell you my measurements shortly but here is the finished box.

ABOUT THE BOX

The lid for the box was made using another sheet in the pack of Painted Blooms DSP.  On the bottom of the box inside I adhered a matching piece of that DSP to line the box. I didn’t take a picture of that.  The Blackberry Bliss Satin ribbon is not wrapped around the whole box.  I wrapped a piece over the lid and tucked the ends just inside the lid.  That means the receiver won’t have to undo the ribbon each time they open the box.  I tied a bow with the ribbon and attached that to the top.

I cut a window in the lid – BEFORE ASSEMBLING – with the Deco Labels Framelits.  The width is a little wider than the Big Shot so I had to fold up one side and lay it over the framelit.  I adhered a piece of Window Sheet inside the box lid.  That just finishes it off.  I cut a large butterfly using the Butterfly Dies and adhered that straight on to the acetate.  A little bling never goes astray to finish off a project 🙂

Now for the actual box measurements.  I will give you the measurements I used. For those with Imperial measurements you can follow Chiaki’s tutorial.  I am sure those measurements will be fine.

THE BOX (Metric)

BOX BASE

Cut card 19cm x 24cm.  Score on each side at 3.2cm.  Cut up opposite tabs on both ends and adhere.

BOX LID

Cut card 21.5cm x 16.5cm.  Score at each side at 1.9cm.  Cut up opposite tabs on both ends.  Cut your window before adhering together.

Hope you like this project??  Thanks for stopping by,

OCCASIONS AND SALE-A-BRATION LAUNCH 2015!

Last Saturday I had my Occasions and Sale-A-Bration Catalogue Launch.  It was a great time with 2 different times scheduled.  I think we all had a great time.  Why wouldn’t we?? We are creating and having a few laughs (always good for the soul!!).  I thought I would show you the projects we did.

Firstly, this card uses the new Chalkboard cardstock and chalk inks. (p 25 of the Occasions Catalogue). The chalk inks come in 3 colours at the moment – Aquarmarine (green), Rose Coral (pink) and Yellow Citrus (yellow). This card was CASED from Pinterest.  I have used the Sale-A-Bration paper ‘Best Year Ever’. The chalk inks match nicely with this paper.  I used the ‘Big Day’ stamp set. Another Sale-A-Bration Free choice!

P1150954

To give an idea how the Chalkboard cardstock looks I stamped the images on different card for comparison.  You might get some idea from the photos but I have to say it is much better in real life. 🙂

I used the same chalk ink on each of these cards – the Rose Coral chalk ink pad. The first one on the left the image is stamped on regular Basic Black cardstock, the middle one is stamped on the chalkboard paper on the rough side.  The one on the right ( I know I didn’t write on this one.  I thought I could use it on a card later), is stamped on the shiny, smooth side of the Chalkboard paper.  This is important.  You will notice the 2 different surfaces to the card. You must stamp on the smoother side. You get a much more crisper image.

This card was CASED from Pinterest also and is using ‘Crazy About You’ stamp set.  This is stamped in Strawberry Slush and Pistachio Pudding.  The greeting is in Smoky Slate and the “you” is from the ‘Hello There’ Thinlets from the Silver Foil.

Of course, we can’t forget the Goodie Bags I gave to all the guests.  These were inspired by a project on Pinterest.  I used regular brown lunch paper bags and decorated them with the ‘Butterfly Basics’ stamp set and the Butterfly Dies.  The sentiment is from the Sale-A-Bration set ‘Simply Wonderful’.  I coloured part of the “THANKS” with the blender pen and inkpads.  The Designer Series Paper is from the Painted Blooms DSP.  Absolutely gorgeous paper! The tags were attached with a cute little peg.
