Oh, how I love a good box!!!

I love all things 3d really but especially boxes, so I was excited to see that this week’s Case-ing the Catty challenge was the Gift Packaging section of the catalogue. There are lots of great packaging options in the catalogue from bags, boxes and more.

I decided to make 2 projects this week. For my first project, I thought I would case the box on page 65 of the catalogue. (It has a silver doily on it, so I was sold!!)

But I decided to not make a box, but try a bag made with the new Gift Bag punch board. I decided to add a flap to the top of the bag so that it would have a closure and the tag could be attached to it.

I reversed the colours used from the sample and went with a piece of dotty Melon Mambo from the Brights Collection DSP stack. I hope you like my gift bag!

Here’s a close up of the flap.

For my second project, I wanted to try the hamburger box on page 61. Only one problem, I don’t have the Hamburger box die. So I got out my trusty gift box punch board and a piece of the Color Me Irresistible Specialty DSP and 60 seconds later, voila, I had a box!!

To make the flower, I used a piece of whisper white envelope paper. It’s a lighter paper which made it easier to work with. I cut out a number of petals from the Bouquet Bigz L die, and curved them slightly with my bone folder. I then stuck the petals together with glue dots. You can use either tombow glue or hot glue but I didn’t want to make a big mess and I was in a hurry to get it done! I also cut the black flower centre from the die. I attempted to make the yellow flower centre but as you can see, there’s a pearl in the middle. Less said about that, the better!!

Now I have to mention, I had a bit of trouble getting a good photo of the box, so please excuse my photos!!

CTC 26 – Something Borrowed

We’ve had a bit of change at Case-ing the Catty and we are now doing a blog hop every week starting at 7pm on Friday.

This week we are casing the Wedding section of the Occasions catalogue (pages 42-44) of the AU/NZ catalogue.

I don’t have the wedding stamps as I’m in that period of no weddings (but lots of 40th’s!!).  I do however have the gorgeous Something Borrowed DSP and Something Lacy stamp.  Did you know that the DSP has 4 sheets of each pattern so if you are making invites etc, you have enough of one design to go around.

So I decided to case the card on page 42.

Isn’t it pretty!  I love the Something Lacy stamp!!  Especially when it is stamped on vellum.

Here is my version.

I used the sentiment from the Big News stamp set and embossed it in silver.  I coloured the flowers using the Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write Marker.   I used the White Jute Ribbon, Sahara Sand Lace Trim and the Silver Baker’s twine like the original which adds lots of dimension.

I decided to make another couple of cards to showcase the gorgeous Something Borrowed DSP.

I used the Perfect Pennants stamp set for the sentiment and cut it out with the Chalk Talk framelits.  I also used Lost Lagoon ribbon.

On this one, I used the Feels Good stamp set and the Deco framelits. I trimmed the top of the shape with my paper snips.

I hope you have enjoyed my projects. I’d love you to leave a comment below.

3 March 2014 – I love flowers

And the only way I going to get some, is if I make them!!

I am loving the new Spiral Flower Original die. One of the girls at my recent team day did a presentation on it and did an awesome job with convincing us all that we need it!!

I found this cute bag on Pinterest by BJ Peters, and thought it would make a lovely card to do at Stamp Club.

I didn’t change a lot as I thought it was really cute. I was really happy with how my rose turned out!!
