Thank you for joining me for the final weeks design. Every Thursday throughout September, myself and 4 other ladies from our team will be showcasing projects made with the Flirty Flowers stamp set.
For the final week I wanted to do something a little special and showcase nearly all of the images in the collection, now I used a lot of products but you could stick to one stamp set and one die set or punch to give you a similar effect.
For the box I used a simple ‘pizza box’ style box and used Thick Whisper White cardstock cut to 5 1/2″ x 10″. I scored this on the long side at 1″, 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″, 9″. On the short side I scored it at 1″, 4 1/2″. This will create a 3 1/2″ square box once completed.
I assigned each stamp to a colour from 2017-2019 in-color collection and stamped on the unassembled box with each stamp/colour in a random pattern. Then I folded and burnished my score lines, cut up the score lines. Using the 3/4″ circle punch I cut out a half circle from the front of the lid help with opening the box. Then I glued the tabs to complete the box. I decided to add a layer to the top of the box, I cut Berry Burst cardstock to 3″ square and glued that on. I stamped an image onto a 2 3/4″ Whisper White square and glued that to the coloured cardstock layer.
I made five card blanks from each of the in-color collection cardstock measuring 3″ x 6″, scored at 3″. Using the Fresh Florals DSP I made envelopes with the envelope punch board by following the instructions printed on the board. You could use the mini white envelopes from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue to save on this part of the project.
I cut Whisper White cardstock to 2 3/4″ square for each of the card fronts and using the stamp/ink combo from before, I stamped the images onto the card front. Using the Layering Circles and Layering Ovals Framelits I cut out Whisper White cardstock and the in-color collection cardstock for the sentiments, I glued these to the card bases using Snail and dimensionals and then I added a range of embellishments to the finished notecards. I also used the Classic Label and the Banner Triple punches as well as the Thoughtful Banners stamp set for extra sentiments.
If you haven’t got the all the die sets you could use the Stitched Shapes as this set will give you circles, squares and ovals in one. I also used the Classic Label and the Banner Triple punches as well as the Thoughtful Banners stamp set for extra sentiments.
So that was my project for week 4, please stop by and see my fellow team blog posts and thank you so much for joining me this month for the Pootler’s Design Team, I hope to see you on here again soon.
