Wood Works Inlay.

Featuring: 3D box and card set, Instructions, Wood Textures Paper Stack, Seasonal Layer Thinlets

Oh I am so in love with the Wood Textures Paper Stack p.187.
When I saw this idea from Elizabeth Shannon a UK demo. I was in love.
The "look" of Inlaid Wood is simply amazing.
Don't you agree?
Got this bit of information from Wikipeadia. Inlay covers a range of techniques in sculpture and the decorative for inserting pieces of contrasting, often coloured materials into depressions in a base object.
This cute card and matching box all made with Wood Textures Paper.

I used the leaf from the Seasonal Layer Thinlets p.216
Cut your leaf twice.
Place a piece of cardstock under your chosen paper and lay the leaf from the other piece in the recessed space. Glue in place.

With the box I have used some enamel dots in Early Expresso around the corners.

Mighty cold and windy today here in Queensland Winter Weather. But bright shining sun. Yesterday was practically Spring Weather. LOL. Spott…

Happy 21st Card-in-the-Box

Featuring: Card in the Box, 3D, Instructions, Stampin Up
This post should be titledCard In the Box - Revisited. 
The other day someone asked me for the Card In the Box measurements and you know what...while I know them off by heart...I couldn't find anywhere on my blog where I had actually given them. Oh NO!! So I thought I would show you my latest Card In The Box creation, even though it is mostly done with Retired Stampin Up Products.
There is some current SU in there:-  Cardstock: Melon Mambo, Basic Black, Whisper White and Silver Glitter Card and Silver Foil Card. Number of Years Framelits Balloon Builder Punch Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set Bold Butterfly Framelits

The flowers are Retired Stamp Set Flowershop and Pansy Punch. Retired Star punches and Retired Designer Paper.

The beauty of  the Card in the Box card is the fact that it folds flat for mailing.

I love the 3D effect of your images popping out i…

More Fresh Floral Fun

Featuring: (Fresh Floral Designer Paper, Stampin Up, 2017-2018 In Colours, Pretty Label, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, 3D, Matchboxes, Notecards)

Oooh...I just love the Fresh Floral Designer Paper and the new In colours this year.
I just had to show them off at my Catalogue Party.

I made these cute little matchboxes and decorated them with Stamp images from Happy Birthday Gorgeous and the Balloon Builder Punch.
Inside I placed a little Label using some of our marvellous punches - see how well they all go together here -
the Pretty Label punch p.207 and the 1 1/4 and 1 3/8 circle punches and the Classic Label Punch.

Each box held a pack of Berry Tic Tacs, and samples of our new sequins, ribbon and mini dimensionals.

I also made up a quick little pack of notecards in our beautiful new In colours, using the Fresh Florals Designer Paper and the Pretty Label punch, Circle punches and Classic Label Punch again.
What do you think of our new Glitter Enamel Dots (p.196)
Sparkly, adhesive-backed dot…

Fresh Florals Gift box and Card in One

Featuring: (3D, gift box, card and box, Fresh Florals, Happy Birthday Gorgeous, Stampin Up)

Please note that this idea and inspiration came from Becky Roberts, Dani Dziama and April Segelke.
I originally saw some of these made by Dani and April and decided I would give them a go myself.
They were fun and quite easy to work out. I just made up my own measurements and decoration.
Basically a small gift box that would fit something like, jewellery, chocolates, sweets, craft products: ribbon, twine, lace, diamantes, buttons, washi tape etc. and they are presented sitting on their own card.

The box sits neatly into the top of the card.

The box measurements 5cm x 5cm.
Starting with a 15cm x 15cm piece of cardstock, score at 5cm and 10cm.
Box Lid is 12cm x 12cm scored at 3.4cm and 8.6cm.

I have decorated it with Fresh Florals designer paper and pink shimmer ribbon.

I placed a piece of whisper white card on the back of the card for writing on.

I designed the card like a Tunnel Card to help sup…
