I’m not only a papercraft, but a lover of many other crafts!!  One of my all time favourites is cross stitch so I was excited to see the Cross Stitch Christmas stamp set.

Here the latest cross stitch that I finished earlier this year.

Using my Stamparatus, I stamped the 3 trees in Shaded Spruce, Granny Apple Green and Real Red.  It does take a little bit of practice to get the stamps lined up nicely.   I cut it out with an Oval Stitched Shape framelits and then a crumb cake oval.

I embossed the Granny Apple Green with the Quilt Top embossing folder.  Don’t you just love this folder!

I stamped the sentiment in Shaded Spruce and punched it out with the Classic Label punch.  I added a piece of Polka Dot ribbon and Real Red Solid Ribbon.

I just love Christmas!!!  I can’t wait to get into making Christmas cards!

Head on over to visit Lou and check out her gorgeous project!

CTC155 – Case Gift Packaging

ctc_header

I’ve had a lovely week of holidays but sadly I’m back at work tomorrow.  But counting down to the next lot of holidays in only 5 weeks!!

This week at Caseing the Catty, we are casing Gift Packaging from the 2017-2018 Annual Catalogue and the 2017 Holiday Catalogue.

I didn’t actually go too far to be inspired.  Just as far as the cover of the 2017 Holiday catalogue, in fact!

I liked the acetate box on the right hand side of the cover, featuring the Cheery Chirps stamp set.

Once I started making this and taking a closer look at the project, I realised how much detail is on it.

I wanted to use my new Stampin’ Blends to colour the images, so I went with the colours that are available in the pens like Old Olive and Cherry Cobbler.

So firstly, I cut out a piece of Old Olive cardstock to fit the front of the box and embossed it with the Quilt Top Embossing Folder.

The leaves around the bird are actually taken from the other bird stamp in the set.  I stamped it in Memento Black and coloured with the Old Olive Stampin’ blends and fussy cut out.

I cut out a circle from the Stitched Shapes framelits and stamped and coloured the bird.  I then used the fine tip glue pen to attach the leaves to the circle.  I used a piece of a doily behind the circle.

Then there’s a Pool Party Everyday Label punch behind the circle.

So then I cut out a piece of Cherry Cobbler and trimmed the corners to create a tag.  I cut a Silver foil snowflake in half and attached behind the tag.  I then attached the whole lot to the embossed Old Olive piece.

I added a silver tinsel bow for a bit of bling.

This looks much nicer in person!
