Small Secret Window Box

Ihave made this box awhile back but havent had time to post it. I have used the same concept for the taller box, but only reduced the measurements. I like making boxes now, as I find my scorpal very handy to score lines on cardstock, and you can fold and complete a box straight away. I have used best yet sentiment on scallop circle. I also used Always stamp set (notice the bud stems on the side of the box), I think this coordinates with the DSP on the lid very well. Happy Stamping!

Card folder box

This is the last project at the craft class over the weekend. I played a bit with how to make ny card folder box. I like the kraft cardstock as it is very useful to mix with other colours. I also tried to get away from the traditioal Christmas colours. I also find it very useful using only 1 stamp set (which I learned from training field day) to explore a stamp set's versatiltity, I used Snow Swirled stamp set.

Accordion Card

At craft class, we made this accordion card using the Washington Apple DSP. I am loving this designer paper because of the flexibility of the design, either for a boy or girl could do. I got the idea from SCS but altered it a bit with the snap band I made using velcro. Any sentiment could be used, in this card I used echoes of kindness sentiment (hostess stamp set). The girls got to choose their own sentiment in the card. Flower for the card came from the Eastern Blossom stamp set. I thought this stamp set went well with the chosen DSP.

Stamp set: Always, Echoes of Kindness, Eastern Blossoms

Ink: Ruby red, pumpkin pie, brocade blue
Cardstock: Washington Apple DSP, ivory, brocade blue

Thanks for looking. Happy Stamping!

Flippin' Card

This is one of the cards we created at my 1st craft class last Saturday. I cased this card from Julie Woolner (thanks Julie!) which I got from our field training day last Thurs here in Wellington. It was great to meet new people, and hopefully to be part of a local team, so that I won't feel abandoned anymore, (thanks Lisa Beck and the others, I will be in touch!). I like this card a lot because of the movement it makes and it creates a bit of surprise for the sentiment that is partly hidden before you flip it over to the other side. I like this Always stampset as it has a mixture of images and sentiments that you can mix and match with any card

Stamp set: Always $66.95
Cardstock: whisper white, kiwi kiss, riding hood red, and pink pirouette
Ink: old olive, chocolate chip, regal rose, ruby red

Father's Day!

At last Sunday's workshop, we had fun creating this card using the sense of time set. In preparation for Father's Day, I thought to convert the card into a watch, complete with strap to open the card. The girls enjoyed punching the hole for the strap using the slit punch, and stamping the sentiments and images on the card.
Stamp sets: Ocassional Greetings, Sense of Time
Colours: chocolate chip, old olive
