Frostwood Lodge - Box In A Bag

This project starts out with a 4 1/2" square piece of card stock to make a small box base.  Use your favourite DSP (Frostwood Lodge from Holiday Mini used here) for the "bag" portion.  I made a few and filled them with coffee beans, nuts and chocolate using the medium sized cello bags on page 181 of IB&C.

My flower was made using the Blossoms Petal Builder punch.  I saw a video on YouTube by Create with Dee showing how she ran it through the Big Shot after assembling.

Tall one is using 6 1/2" DSP; small one uses 5 1/2" DSP.  Woodgrain background stamp was used on the scalloped border and Round Tab Punch handles.

It's a perfect time of year to start working on your Christmas cards and 3D projects!!  Order your supplies on-line through my Stampin' Up! website

French Foliage - Joseph's Coat - Slider Card

A fun card!!  This is a slider card.  Pull the tab at the top and it opens at both the top and bottom!!  A strip of recycled shopping bag is the trick to this card.

The technique for the focal piece was very cool too.  It's called Joseph's Coat, an emboss resist technique, using glossy card stock and clear embossing powder.  I followed the instructions of a Stampin' Up! demonstrator France Martin for this technique.

This is how the card looks open!

Ink Colors:  Cherry Cobbler, Old Olive, Daffodil Delight and Early Espresso.
Paper:  Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Glossy Card Stock
Stamp Set:  French Foliage and  Posy Punch

It is still fall, so my French Foliage card is still appropriate; however, it's hard to tell these last few days with snow on the ground!  Here's hoping for some more seasonal weather in the forecast!

Thanks for stopping by!

The Baja Breeze card just has white satin ribbon and pearls added for a quick card.  The die cut scalloped edges are so pretty, it really doesn't need much.  The sentiment used here is from Everyday Wishes, which is one of the choices for your free stamp set (regular price $11.95)

There are two other Simply Sent sets available and are certainly worth a look.  So check out page 193 and call me to order yours today!
