Sneak Peak - Gift Box Punch Board

Hi there

Well it's not long now till our Holiday Catalogue goes live (28 August) so I thought I'd share a project I made using the new Gift Box Punch Board.

I've made this card and box for my wonderful courier driver who delivers my lovely Big Brown Boxes (BBB) full of Stampin' Up! goodies.  I'm sure he'll get a surprise to find something for him when he next leaves a BBB for me - hopefully tomorrow :)




This box was so easy to make and will be great for making quick chocolate holders!  This one holds 6 Whittaker mini slabs.

Supplies:
Stamp Set - Hey You
Card Stock - Basic Black, Whisper White
DSP - Kaleidoscope (retired)
Other - Gift Box Punch Board, Artisan Punch

Father's Day Card - August Card Class

Hi there

Just a quick post before I head off babysitting (and prepping for my team swap).

Here are the two cards we made last week at my card class.  This months theme was Father's Day (which is Sunday 7th September here in NZ) and a card for a teenager.

I saw a card using strips of DSP  here and thought it would go well for a masculine card - here is what we created:



This card has lots of new products - card stock, DSP, punch and framelits.

The second card we made is great for a teenage girl.  I saw a similar card on Pinterest but it didn't have a name so I can't give credit directly - but thanks to whoever came up with this idea.


This also uses new products - 'Hey You' stamp set and Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder.

Supplies:
Stamp Set - Teeny Tiny Sentiments
Card Stock - Lost Lagoon, Hello Honey, Sahara Sand, Whisper White, Gold Foil
DSP - Moonlight Paper Stack
Other - Itty Bitty Accent Punch Pack, Little Letters Framelits, Dimensionals, Word Window Punch, Modern Label Punch

Stamp Set - Hey You, Mixed Bunch
Card Stock - Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe, Whisper White, Basic Black
Ink - Strawberry Slush, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe
Other - Large Polka Dot Embossing Folder, Project Life Corner Punch, Rhinestones, Dimensionals

Seeing Stars - Decorative Mask

Hi there

I had fun the other weekend trying out the new Decorative Masks along with three other new products.  This is my first attempt using the Stars mask.  You get two masks in a pack - Hearts & Stars or Dots and Stripes for just $5.95 a pack.


For this card I used a dauber to 'colour' in stars randomly using Wild Wasabi and Lost Lagoon.  I punched out some stars from matching card stock using the new Itty Biity Accents Punch Pack - I'm loving these three punches.  The sentiment is from a new set called 'Hey You' (page 103 of the Annual Catalogue).  I think this will be my 'go to' sentiment set.  The final new product I used for this card was the Project Life Corner Punch.

Supplies:
Stamp Set - Hey You
Card Stock - Wild Wasabi, Lost Lagoon, Whisper White
Ink - Wild Wasabi, Lost Lagoon
Other - Stars Decorative Mask, Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack, Corner Punch, Decorative Label Punch

Thinlits Circle Card

Hi there

Here's a card I made a couple of months ago and forgot to share.  It uses one of my favourite colours - Bermuda Bay.  This card is made using the Thinlits Circle Card die.  It's a great die as you can make it a standard size or like this one - extended.  You can still get two cards out of an A4 sheet of card stock.



This set comes with the card die and 9 additional pieces:

Supplies:
Stamp set - Sketched Birthday
Card Stock - Bermuda Bay, Basic Black, Whisper White
Ink - Bermuda Bay
DSP - Kaleidoscope (retired)
Other - Thinlits Circle Card, Bitty Banners Framelits, Triangle Punch
