The Stampin’ Up! Catch A Snowflake promotion is coming to an end this Friday, November 30th or while supplies last. This project highlights the Snowfall Thinlits Dies and the Snowflake Trinkets from the promotion. Along with the dies, the coordinating stamp sets, Snow is Glistening and Happiness Surrounds, provide endless creative uses.
It is enjoyment to embellish gift boxes and bags. When I saw the various dies in the Snowflake Thinlits Dies set, I knew they were perfect for creating an embellishment to use on the Silver Mini Gable Boxes.
To create the embellishment, select the largest snowflake die from the set to cut a snowflake from Whisper White cardstock. This becomes the embellishment base. Next, choose coordinating dies to cut snowflakes to layer from Night of Navy cardstock and Whisper White cardstock. Refer to the photo above for a layering suggestion. The fine-tip glue pen works great to adhere the snowflake pieces to one another. With a mini glue dot, attach a Snowflake Trinket to the navy & white snowflake. I recommend using multipurpose liquid adhesive to attach the layered snowflake to the base.
To complete the embellishment, create a tag by using Night of Navy ink to stamp the “For You” from the Snow is Glistening stamp set. To attach the Snowflake embellishment and tag onto the Silver Mini Gable Box, tie through the box handle using Night of Navy Medium Baker’s Twine and 1/8″ Sheer Whisper White Ribbon.
Some of you joined me for a Facebook Live presentation last week showcasing the Country Lane Suite that is in the 2018 Holiday Catalog. While ordering is not available until next week, I am posting the information on the card materials and the Mini Gable Treat Box showcased during the presentation.
Project materials are as follows:
Card base – Crushed Curry Cardstock: 4-1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5-1/2″ to create a top fold card base
Country Lane Designer Series Paper (DSP): 5-1/4″ x 4″
Blackberry Bliss Cardstock: cut 5-1/8″ x 3-7/8″
Whisper White Cardstock: 5-1/2″ x 4″ (for inside of card, trim after completing card front and stamping the image to ensure you are able to center the image in the oval); 3-1/4″ x 3/4″ for sentiment
Country Home Stamp Set,
Layering Ovals Framelits
Classic Stampin’ Ink: Mint Macaron, Blackberry Bliss
Stampin’ Blends: Light Mint Macaron, Cajun Craze Light & Dark, Dark Daffodil Delight, Old Olive Light & Dark, Blackberry Bliss Light & Dark
3/16″ Braided Linen Trim

I am also sharing another method for cutting the ovals versus the method demonstrated via the Facebook Live presentation. Both methods work equally well.
Embellished Mini Gable Box
A favorite project from the Facebook Live presentation is stamping an image from the Country Home Stamp set onto a Lustrous White Mini Gable Box (it’s also a funny portion of the presentation as I drew a blank on the name of the box!) Yes, we must laugh at ourselves! On to the project details, using Early Espresso Classic Stampin’ Pad stamp the desired image onto the side of the box. Next, sponge Balmy Blue Classic Ink around the floral bouquet image prior to coloring with a variety of Stampin’ Blends. Stamp a tag with Blackberry Bliss and cut using the 1″ circle punch. Use the 1-1/4″ circle punch to cut a scrap of Crumb Cake for the tag base. Further embellish with a folded strip of 1/4″ Rich Razzleberry Velvet Ribbon.
Thanks for stopping by. Remember the Country Home Suite of products will not be available until September 5 but add it to your must have list!
