29 October 2012 – Candlelight Gorgeousness!!!

I am in love with the Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP in the Holiday Catalogue.  It is just gorgeous!!!!  There are two sheets of flocked window sheets which are just beautiful!!!

I cased today’s card from fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Stephanie Robnett on a demo only facebook group.  It’s not exactly the same but that doesn’t matter.  I like it!!

I really love the Apothecary Accents framelits which I used to cut out the centre piece.  They can even cut through the glimmer paper.

I coloured the flowers using blenders pens and ink pressed into the lid of the ink pad.  I’m not very good at doing shading but I think I did ok on this one.

Stamp Set:  Bells & Boughs

Ink:  Black Staz-on, Real Red, Gumball Green

Paper:  Naturals White, Candlelight Christmas Specialty DSP

Accessories:  Big Shot, Apothecary Accents framelits, White organza ribbon, real red grosgrain ribbon, vintage brads, glimmer paper, blender pens.

7 October 2012 – Christmas Box

Here is the final box of the series.  Seeing as it is only 79 sleeps until Christmas (Aahhhh!!), I thought it would be nice to do a Christmas box as well.  And there are such nice papers to choose from this year, so I need to try them all out!!

I used my favourite Labels Collection Framelits to mat the Heart of Christmas stamp from the Holiday Catalogue.  You can just see it in the photo that I have used the Festive paper piercing pack on the Real Red layer.  Looks really nice!!  The snow flake is from Snow Flurry Die.  You would never know it was hiding a little ink spot!!

 

 

 

The cards are following the same template as the other boxes.  I’ve uused the Candelight Christmas Specialty DSP from the Holiday Catalogue.  This paper is very nice and it includes two flocked window sheets which are very luxurious!!  The Holiday Ornaments Framelits make cutting out the ornaments so easy!  No more dodgy hand cutting for me!  I also love the font on the Greetings of the Season stamp set.  Very elegant.

I hope you have enjoyed the box that I made from Tanya’s tutorial.

5 October 2012 – Thank you Box

This box looks so pretty!!  I’m really happy with how it turned out.  I used the Window Frames Collection Framelits and again used the Festive Paper Piercing pack.  I used the Apothecary Accents framelits to put the frame at the bottom.

Here are the cards.

 

 

 

I used three of my favourite colours, Daffodil Delight, Rich Razzleberry and Marina Mist to match with the Polka Dot Parade DSP.

4 October – Birthday Box

The birthday box was the first one that I made.  I’m really happy with how it turned out.  I used my favourite framelits, Labels Collection and the co-ordinating stamp set, Apothecary Accents.  You can’t really tell in the photo but I used the new Festive paper-piercing pack on the Midnight Muse layer.  Such a nice touch!!

Here are the cards that I made to go into the box.

 

 

I used the same sketch for each card as it was easy to duplicate.  I really like the Comfort Cafe DSP and how it matches with the new in-colours, Midnight Muse and Summer Starfruit.
