Colour INKspiration Colour Challenge #CI01

This week I am entering a new Challenge; the Colour INKspiration Challenge #CI01
Why not join in? Challenges are so much fun, and this Challenge finishes Monday 23rd January. Maybe you can get crafty over the weekend?

And look at this gorgeous palette of colours to start with! There are 6 colours in total and you can use a minimum of 3 or all of them.
I used them all...
 
The colours are more Spring-time to me, and I have used the 'Circle of Spring' stampset for my projects; a Birthday card and matchy-matchy gift box.
 
I stamped the flowers onto 'Watercolour Paper', and coloured them using an 'Aqua Painter'. Once dried, I die-cut each pretty pastel flower.
And then I did something crazy and fussy-cut the flourishes from the wreath stamp!
I do that sort of stuff.
 
The card base measures 4" x 4" (4" x 8" & scored at 4"). The top mat is 3 3/4" x 3 3/4" - stamping in the middle, and then I ran a 'Mint Macaron Stampin' Write Marker' around the edge to add a frame.
The belly band for the gift box is a strip of Whisper White cardstock - a tad smaller in width than the 'Mint Macaron' ribbon. Attach 'Tear & Tap Adhesive' to the belly band, then wrap the ribbon around. The flowers will hide the join at the top.
 
The gift box: I bought a lip balm (similar to the EOS ones), and found on Pinterest this easy peasy video tutorial to make this sweet little box by Maria Fennelly - click here for the video tutorial.
 
Thankyou for visiting. I've loved having you here. If there are any questions - fire away, and comments are more than welcome.
Have a fantastic day. D x

Global Design Project - 'Colour Challenge' #gdp069


I have a fun and Summery creation for this weeks 'Colour Challenge' for the Global Design Project #gdp069.


How cool having a 'Free Choice' colour option! 
I immediately thought of pineapples, and added 'Cucumber Crush' to the trio. 
The perfect combination using 'In Colours 2015-2017'.

A little lineup of pineapples and polka dots. 
The pineapple and sentiment are from the 'Pop of Paradise' stampset.

I machine stitched the 'Silver Metallic Thread' around the edge of the vellum, and added the silver embossed 'Hello' sentiment with some ribbon and a little more thread.

I coloured the pineapple stamp using 'Delightful Dijon' & 'Cucumber Crush' Stampin' Write Markers, then lightly spritzed the stamp with water using the 'Stampin' Spritzer'
TIP: Lightly spritz the 'Watercolour Paper' prior to stamping. 

Do you like my pineapples? They were so fun to make and I hope you get some crafting time this weekend because you can be a Guest Designer for the next Colour Challenge!

'Love is in the Air' - Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop

Welcome to my blog - you may have started with me, or have hopped from Holly, or back from Jennifer? Aren't their creations amazing?
 It's January and the Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop have been busy creating 'Love is in the Air' projects for this months theme.





As you may know by now, the '2017 Occasions Catalogue' and 'Sale-A-Bration Brochure' commenced this week, and my creations are from the NEW 'Sending Love Suite'.

There is so much love in this sweet set, and you will be ready for Valentine's Day, or any other opportunity to show some love!
I started out with a box. A little box made from 'Kraft cardstock' using the 'Envelope Punch Board'. Isn't it the cutest? 

This little box was made to house some gift tags, and I have decorated with the NEW 'Sealed with Love Bundle' & 'Sending Love DSP Stack' and the 'Sending Love Ribbon Combo' in Real Red.
 
This is how 8 gift tags fit inside this sweet little box. 
 The gift tags measure 2" x 4 2/16" (5cm x 10.5cm before punching) - a perfect size  to fit into the 'Scallop Tag Topper Punch'.

How to make the box:
Grab your Envelope Punch Board
Cut your cardstock 6 1/2" x 6 1/2"
1st Punch: 1 7/8"
2nd Punch: 3 1/4 "

I have made tiny envelopes, using the DSP & Glassine Sheets, and stamped coordinating 'notes' to go inside.
The lined hearts are die-cut and adhered onto the cardstock circles. 

Those die-cut hearts & arrows! CUTE!!!
And a simply sweet couple of tags using the charming wooden 'Sending Love Embellishments'.

The finished box sitting in my hands. 
This will be a Birthday gift to my best friend for the end of the month. A lovely gift to send, and a little box to keep or 'Gift on' when finished. I think she will keep it 😊
 
Thankyou for visiting and you must keep on hopping. There are so many more creations to see... D x
