I’ve had to have a bit of a shuffle around this week… as you may know I always (try) to work a few weeks ahead with my blog projects (gives me time for my life to fall apart around me and still get things made for you!) and so when I filled my planner with my projects and ideas for October I had planned to share my September Customer Thank You Cards with you today…. except that Stampin’ Up! released an AMAZING! offer last week which has sent the warehouse into a bit of a spin! This means that my Code Club gifts are stuck somewhere between Stockton on Tees and Germany…. and so I can’t share the cards I haven’t yet been able to send! So…. they will hopefully be filling this slot next week, and in the meantime I have a fabulous Video Tutorial for you…
I made this box a few weeks ago for a team training event…. which I am sure that you are all well and truly sick of me waffling on about now! but I wanted a fun 3D project for my display, and this was it!
The whole box is designed around the Layering Square Framelits and coordinating Stitched Shapes framelits. And while the original features the Birthday Blooms stamp set, with a hint of Touches of Texture in Island Indigo and Crumb Cake…. The video’d version is in Berry Burst and Smoky Slate
Box Base – 11 1/2 x 5 1/2″
Score on the long edge at 2 3/4, 5 1/2, 8 1/4 and 11″
Score on the short side at 2 3/4″
Box Lid – 3 13/16 x 3 13/16″ (sorry that this is such an odd measurement, but it makes sure that the lid fits snuggly!)
Score on all 4 sides at 1/2″
While the original box uses the Fine Tip Glue Masking Technique the version in the tutorial video uses more traditional Embossed resist to create a pretty effect.
The snowflake stamp is taken from the Snowflake Sentiments…. I am loving this stamp and die bundle at the moment! Check out my Online Card Classes page tomorrow for a fun card class featuring this stamp set. Here it was heat embossed in clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder before I added Berry Burst ink with a sponge over the top. The clear embossing powder resists the ink and leaves a white snowflake showing through the bold pink!
Don’t forget that the Stampin’ Up! World Card Making Day Offers End TOMORROW! Grab a heap of great stamp sets for 15% off…..
