Thinking of you Gift Set

One of my new favorite bundles in the Occasions catalog is the Window Shopping bundle. As soon as I saw it I knew I would love the detail on the top of the box and I thought it would look perfect with the delicate detail stamp set from the Sale-a-bration catalog.

I used the Window box thinlet dies to cut the base for the box. A black piece of card-stock was inserted under the lid. I traced the lid part of the thinlit and fussy cut it out. I then stamped the Oh So Succulent flowers on Blushing Bride card stock with Watermelon Wonder. The lace around the sides is Archival Black and is from the Delicate Details stamp set. ( A Sale-a-bration set) The filigree leaf pattern on the sides of the box is from the Timeless Textures stamp set and was stamped in Wild Wasabi. A black Sharpe marker was used to colour the pearls and I placed them on each flower and on the lace on the sides of the box.

The card base is Black card stock.     The first layer is Wild Wasabi cut at  5 1/2″ x 3 3/4″.The 2nd layer is Watermelon Wonder and is cut at 5 1/2″ x 2 3/4″. The third layer is Blushing Bride cut at 5 1/2″ x 2 5/8 “. The green filigree on the card is from Timeless Texture and stamped in Wild Wasabi. The little black flowers with leaves are from the Window Shopping stamp set. The pink flowers are from the Oh So Succulent and are also stamped on Blushing Bride with Watermelon wonder. I heat embossed “Thinking of You” in White on Black card stock..

Two different valentine cards with the same colour scheme

Both cards are made with  Pool Party, Whisper White and Watermelon Wonder. The stamp sets used for the first card were Bloomin’ love, Sealed with Love and Delicate Details (a Sale-a-bration set) I used the Bloomin Heart Thinlits to cut the Whisper White heart. The flowers on the heart are stamped with Pool Party and Watermelon Wonder. I stamped the Pool Party heart and flower out and embossed with white. The lace piece under “be mine” and the smaller heart are both Watermelon Wonder stamped on white. The backgrond is stamped with the Delicate Details in Watermelon wonder.

The second card I used the same stamp sets plus Oh so Succulent. I added the lace doily in the background. I also embossed the background with the falling petals embossing folder.The flower and small heart are both inked Watermelon Wonder. The larger heart and the lace detail are Pool Party and the greenery is Always Artichoke.

I finally have a blog!!

HELLO !!!

So happy to be here and share the new products with you!!! There are a few things I have to figure out but with the help of my daughter Deanna I should be posting projects later today. It definitely is a learning curve. I spent the last few days preparing a watermark which is not as easy as I thought it would be. I am not 100% happy with it but I think is important when you have a blog though, so it will do for now. Well time to go to create and “live to stamp” 😊
