Happy Friday! This week I am sharing another of the recent class projects, a First Frost Baker’s Box. The Baker’s Boxes are a great size for adding a treats or other small gifts. One of my favorite embellishments for boxes is to make a belly band and add embellishments so naturally, I decided to use one for this project. For embellishment, the First Frost Bundle coordinates beautifully with the Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (DSP).
To decorate the Baker’s Box, cut a 1-3/4″ wide strip of Frosted Floral Designer Series Paper (DSP) to create the belly band. Since the DSP will not fit completely around the box, cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock using the large Layering Ovals Framelit to connect the DSP and to act as a base for the embellishments.
The stamped floral uses the Blackberry Bliss and Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Markers to color the stamp, then “huff” by blowing your breath over the inked stamp to keep the ink moist and stamp onto a scrap of Whisper White card stock. Cut using the Floral Bouquet Framelits. Also use the Framelits to cut Blackberry Bliss, Mossy Meadow and Vellum images. Cut a piece of Whisper White card stock using the large oval from the Stitched Shapes Framelits Dies. Stamp “enjoy” (from the Takeout Treats Stamp Set) using Blackberry Bliss Classic Stampin’ Pad on the right side of the oval. Attach to the Blackberry Bliss oval on the baker’s box belly band. Layer the cut embellishments onto the left side of the oval. Finish by adding a doubled Linen Thread bow and scattering Basic Rhinestone Jewels around the paper.
Guess what’s coming our way? Snowflakes from heaven. Well that’s what it will feel like with so many snowflakes in one promotion. Starting November 1st, you will have a chance to purchase this very special “Catch a Snowflake” promotion. It’s a month long promotion, or while supplies last. You can take a look at the video below to see them up close and personal. Also, check out some samples below and get a better idea of what these products can do.
They really seem like Snowflakes from Heaven!
Below are the images and I hope you are as excited as I am. It’s just a small peek of what you can expect when the promotion kicks off next month. You can also see some actual samples below.
First of all, it’s all about presents in this weeks CASE the catalog. The project features the Bring on the Presents stamp set and All the Presents Thinlits from page 16 of the Holiday Catalog. I’m very fond of these products and what cute projects you can create with them. All the projects on that page of the catalog are great. There was just something about this card that attracted me. Maybe it’s the non-traditional color, or probably the bows.
Either way, I’m all about presents and hope you are too!
I plan on creating another one and maybe even more to use right on my packages as a tag. The bows are also fun to color and when you raise them with the Dimensionals, they just sort of pop. This catalog is so wonderful and I enjoy all the projects. It’s been hard choosing one each week because I enjoy them so much.
The colors are: Mint Macaroon Cardstock, Whisper White Cardstock, Mint Macaroon, Shaded Spruce and Cherry Cobbler ink pads (the Cherry Cobbler is on the tag). The Shaded Spruce Stampin’ Blends are used to color the bows and the Gold Metallic Thread is used as well. Use Stampin Dimensionals and adhesive to adhere the bows. To ensure lines are straight, I recommend using the Stamparatus.
Finally, sometimes the non-traditional colors make cards that much more appealing. Taking a card up a notch and making it stand out can make people admire it that much more. Add some dazzle or some fancy accessories and give it character. Maybe even use another color. It’s all in your imagination.
I also hope you enjoyed this weeks CASE the Catalog.
