Two different projects from me today - one a card - one a 3d box.
The box is a self closing box - there are all sorts of youtube tutorials on how to make these - I followed Dawn from Dawn's Stamping Thoughts.net as I love to watch her and her Hi Stampers always brightens my day. I've used the Designer Series Paper in Regals Colouring and used Island Indigo along with Crushed Curry card stock. The Balloon is from Honeycomb Happiness and the sentiment is from Banner Banter - great for adding small sentiments to projects. This one is going toe filled with little chocolate eggs for.... Easter! I'm entering this little box into the Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge - find it here - they are looking for the use of dies or punches.
The Card has used the masking technique to make the background for the flower from the Birthday Blooms set. I love the soft image the inks have produced here. The wording is from Perfect Pairings. I'm going to pop this one into the Allsorts Challenge - you'll find them here . They are looking for Spring inspiration.
As I'm sure you know all Stampin Up products can be found on my website here. Don't forget if you do place an order to use the hostess code shown on the side of my blog.
