Welcome back to another 2015-16 Stampin' Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop. This time we were given our choice of a few different products to feature. I adore the Paisleys & Posies stamp set, so I decided to use it for my projects today.
For my first project I made this adorable little 2" square box using Crumb Cake cardstock. It was easy to make and it is the perfect compliment to the card I made for today's hop. I stamped the cardstock with Basic Black Archival ink before I cut, scored and folded the box so that it gives to look of pre-printed cardstock. To create the half circle, I used a 1/2" circle punch. I will include the box pattern and materials used at the bottom of this post, so you can make one too. For the tag I carefully inked only the word "Thankful" and the line below and stamped it.
This card is designed to coordinate with the box and is probably one of the easiest ways to use this stamp set because there is no coloring involved. This is just basic, good-old-fashioned stamping, but I added some stippling in the background using a Project Life Journaling Pen. To make those adorable embellishments I die cut Basic Black cardstock with the coordinating Paisley Framelits Dies, dabbed on some VersaMark ink and then heat embossed them using clear embossing powder. They are attached to the card front with mini glue dots. Be sure to scroll down to the bottom of this post for a list of supplies for both projects.
If you are already going through the hop, you should have just arrived here from visiting our Artisan Team Leader and my good friend, Cindy Schuster. When you leave here you will travel on to visit the amazing Inge Groot. Our team this year is super talented and you are going to love all the fabulous projects so be sure to visit everyone on the team.
I WOULD LOVE TO BE YOUR DEMONSTRATOR!
If you are in the United States and need a demonstrator, then you can order your supplies in my online store here.
Have a blessed day!
