Paris in the Spring

Do you ever get an idea for a project you can’t get out of your head and you have to create it?  Well this happened with an idea to make an Eiffel Tower shaped box using the image from the Artistic Etchings digital stamp set because then I can make it whatever size I like.  I finally decided to create the box for this week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments Color Splash Challenge.  The colors are Poppy Parade, Blushing Bride and Pear Pizzazz.  These colors together remind me of spring.

I created the front of the box on My Digital Studio.  I used the Blushing Bride polka dot background and enlarged the Eiffel Tower and colored it Pear Pizzaz.  I then created an outline template of the tower and cut it out.  I made the front and bottom of the box from chip board then adhered the Eiffel Tower image/DSP on the front and trimmed any uneven edges.  The bottom of the box is slightly smaller so the top can fit over the sides from the bottom.  The sides of the box are made from Very Vanilla CS.  I also finished the inside with Very Vanilla CS and grosgrain ribbon.  I plan on creating a tutorial for this box.  As soon as complete it I’ll post it.

For the card I stamped the tower in Versamark and Pear Pizzazz ink then heat embossed with clear embossing powder.  The card also features Poppy Parade DSP from the In Color  Hostess Level One paper pack.  I embellished the box and the card with buttons created with the Sizzlit Buttons #5 die.  I also embellished with loads of pearls.  I hope these colors inspire you to create a project for spring.

Owl Love

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a Punch Theme Challenge.  I was so excited about this challenge because one of my favorite punches is the Two-Step Owl punch.   So I decided to create my project around this punch.

I’ve been wanting to make an owl box to store 3″x3″ cards and I’ve succeeded.  The 3″ x 3″ cards and envelopes fit nicely into this box.  I’m finishing up the tutorial along with the dress tutorial.  I promise to post them by the end of the week.

Hand Stamped Sentiments – From A Card to Something Else – Challenge #39

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is so much fun!  The challenge is to be inspired to create a 3D gift project from a card.  I created a card with the Northern Hearts hostess stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  This stamp set is so versatile.  It’s a Christmas stamp set but can be used for Valentine’s or a birthday.  I love it!  This stamp set can only be earned with a minimum workshop of $150.  Email me to book your workshop so you can earn this stamp set.

With Christmas around the corner I decided to create a Christmas gift set.  I created the card using the bird image in a heart then thought about putting it together with a heart box.  The heart box is perfect for a small gift.  I purchased the heart box from a craft store and painted it with white acrylic paint.  I traced the lid on Cherry Cobbler card stock, cut it out and stamped the bird image in craft Whisper White then adhered it to the top of the lid.  I stamped the image with Cherry Cobbler ink on Whisper White card stock then cut it out banner style.  I also added small half pearls, and used the Eyelet border punch for trimming and the Perfect Polka dots embossing folder to give my project that extra touch.  The sentiment is from the Contempo Christmas stamp set which is perfect.  I hope you’re inspired to participate in this fun challenge.
