Daisy Note Cards in a Pizza Box

I just love those mini Pizza boxes in the new Holiday Catalogue.  They are such wonderful containers for mini note cards.  Other years I have had to make my own little boxes - this year I don't.  Great isn't it?

For these note cards I die cut images directly from the Daisy Delight DSP using the stitched oval framelits.


Inside the decorated pizza box are 6 (six) 2 3/4 by 2 3/4" Whisper White note cards and 6 (six) mini envelopes (also in the Holiday catalogue)


The front of each note card was stamped with a non SU script stamp using Smoky Slate ink.  Then across the middle I added a strip of Daisy Delight DSP.
On top of this I added (with the small dimensionals) 2 die cut images from the Daisy Delight DSP - one a little smaller than the other.  At the bottom of the larger one a bow made with the 1/8" gold taffeta ribbon was added.

You can't really see it from the picture, but some clear Wink of Stella was applied to each of the flowers.


The pizza box was decorated in a similar manner to the note cards, except I added a Night of Navy mat to the box front first.

This time I added a larger oval die cut and a smaller circle die cut, overlapping each other at the bottom. 







Hello Friend - Paper Players #358

I love to watercolor, so this week's challenge at The Paper Players was right up my alley.

This week the challenge is a clean and simple one - sometimes difficult for me because I do like to fuss- and to get colouring. Keeping it clean and simple means limited layers and embellishments.

For this week's challenge I pulled out my watercolour pencils and aqua painter.


I stamped the image onto Whisper White card stock, and before colouring the image, I applied liquid masking solution to completely cover it. After that was dry, I stamped the background stamp "Sheet Music" using Smoky Slate ink over the masked image.  I then peeled off the now dry masking (it's like peeling off sunburned skin) and coloured the image with watercolor pencils and an aqua painter

Some Basic Black card stock was added to both ends and the art piece was added to a Calypso Coral card stock card base at and angle..  The sentiment "Friend"  from Awesomely Artistic" is embossed with Black Embossing powder and added to the art piece using dimensionals

Supplies Used:
Stamps:  Floral Statement, Awesomely Artistic, Music Sheet
Inks:  Black Memento, Watercolour Pencils, Versa Mark, Smokey Slate
Papers:  Calypso Coral, Whisper White, Basic Black
Accessories:  Aqua Painter, Black embossing Powder, gold and clear glitter. 

Count Your Blessings - Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday #336

For my design team card this week I thought I would make a Fall/Thanksgiving card.  The optional theme for this week's challenge for Dawn's sketch is "Fun Florals"




The sentiment from "Count My Blessings" was made the focal point.  This sentiment was stamped on Early Espresso on Whisper White card stock, and die cut with the Layering Circles Framelits and matted with a Garden Green scallop circle. The edges of the Whisper White circle were sponged with Garden Green ink and some tiny leaves were stamped around the periphery. Three Crushed Curry Enamel dots were added at the outer edge of the circle.

The basic card is Garden Green card stock, layered with Whisper White card stock embossed with the Layered Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder.

Some 3/8" Crushed Curry Mini Chevron ribbon was attached to a  3/4" strip of Early Espresso card stock and added to the card front near the bottom of the art piece.

A piece of Painted Autumn Harvest DSP featuring Sunflowers, matted with Garden Green Card stock, was adhered to the left side of the card front using dimensionals. I added the art piece with dimensionals.as well. Near the top of the sentiment circle I added some Green Metallic Thread.

Supplies Used:
Stamp:  Count My Blessings
Inks:  Early Espresso, Garden Green
Papers:  Garden Green, Whisper White, Painted Autumn Harvest DSP, Early Espresso
Accessories:  Layering Leaves Dynamic Embossing Folder, 3/8" Crushed Curry Mini Chevron ribbon, Green Metallic Thread, Crushed Curry  enamel dots, dimensionals, Layering Circles Framelits

Now let's see you create something using Dawn's sketch and upload it to the Try Stampin' or Not on Tuesday blog or Facebook site.
