Yay! I see the sun! It's been missing in action most of the week. Yesterdays rain left us with cooler temperatures in the low 60's. And then we have more rain moving in for Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Needless to say, my flowers are doing well and enjoying it.
week I've shared a series of 3" x 3" Birthday cards that I designed
using Stampin' Up's It's My Party Designer Series Paper and Silhouettes
& Script Stamp Set. Today, I'd like to share the card box that I made on the Stampin' Up Gift Box
Let's take a look:
Pictured above are the cards that I shared this past week!
LOVE Stampin' Up's It's My Party Designer Series Paper! So sad to see it retire!!!
This is truly the "Party" in Stampin' Up's It's My Party Designer Series Paper! Such fun paper!
I also made another set of cards using the black background and another card box using the white background. I just couldn't make up my mind on the Paper so I did both!
A simple box made on SU's Gift Box Punch Board.
My Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, and I made these boxes over the weekend. Kadie had the great idea of cutting the box down on the sides and back and making it shorter to hold 3" x 3" cards and envelopes. Brilliant Kadie!!!
But, I ended up only cutting the sides off and folding and adhering the back of the box flap forward and down into the box.
I made a flower with tissue paper out of 8 punched scalloped circles, stapled them together in the center and scrunched the center scallops up kind of tight and then the outer scallops were scrunched up lightly around the center scallops. I then mixed a spritzer with about 6 drops of SU's Melon Mambo Ink and 2/3 rubbing alcohol and spritzed the flower. I let the flower dry and spritzed it again. I did this until I liked the color I achieved.
I went around the edges of the scallops with my Gold Wink of Stella Brush for a little added "WOW" factor.
I made a belly band for the box using SU's Basic Black Cardstock and adhered it in the back using SU's Tear & Tape.
I then added some of SU's 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon (Retiring) =( in Melon Mambo around the box and tied it in a pretty bow.
The flower was added to the center of the bow using SU's Glue Dots.
the sentiments on all four of my cards, I stamped the Happy Birthday
from Silhouettes & Script Stamp Set in Crushed Curry, Sahara Sand,
Mint Macaron and Melon Mambo, fussy cut them out and adhered them to the
inside of my cards with Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.
I guess I will call this one "A party in a box!" This project was so much fun! I will surely miss this paper!
That's all I have for today.
Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Have a great weekend!
recently discovered that people are using my cards and/or projects,
duplicating them and entering them into challenges and using them for their own card classes. My cards and
projects are my own creations and are not to be used in challenges, blog hops, card classes or
sold at craft shows; etc., for profit. I don't mind if you duplicate my
creativity to pass on to family members or friends as gifts or Occasions
cards; but, PLEASE be considerate of others creativity! Thank you!
