Caseing The Catty – Gift packaging

Sadly, I didn’t have my blog post ready to join in the hop with the amazing Caseing The Catty Crew last Sunday night, but I really wanted to share my project and join in with the challenge.

So here they are.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up!, Year of Cheer, Window Box

I’ve made some Christmas gift boxes using the Window Box framelit dies (which are on sale until Sunday in this week’s Online Extravaganza sale – check them out here) and some of my favourite Christmas supplies the Year of Cheer Specialty Designer paper and those amazing Foil Snowflakes.

Here I have punched out two of the Window box shapes from the Designer Paper. Assembly was really easy following Stampin’ Up! instructions in their YouTube video.

This paper with the foil print, is just so amazing on its own, it really doesn’t take much to dress it up. Here, I have kept it simple, by adding one of those amazing Foil Snowflakes on two of the designs. A simple label sentiment from the Merry Little Labels Stamp set punched with the coordinating Everyday Label punch is all that is featured here. A splash of colour is used with the Real Red 1/8” ribbon in a zig zag pattern beneath it.

The third one is the Copper foil designed paper and here I have teamed this up with some black cardstock with flag ends cut in and embossed the sentiment with white powder. Finishing this off with some lovely fluff of Black Metallic Thread.

I finished off all the boxes with touches of bling – either Pearls or Rhinestones.

The Caseing The Catty team will be back Sunday night with the next hop.

Looking forward to getting back in to blogging more regularly, the last month has been a little busy to say the least. Planning some great projects to finishing the year off with my regular design team spots too.

Colour INKspiration – CI21

colourinkspiration-banner

Welcome to Colour INKspiration for this fortnight, whether you have joined me from Jackie Aitken or starting off here with me, the team has some great inspiration using a fun colour combination.

Here is the colour combination for this challenge:

CI21-081117

Peekaboo Peach, Soft Sky, Rose Red, Pear Pizzazz and So Saffron.

Don’t you just love these colours? They scream fun and bright and cheerful to me…. So that’s what I aimed to create with my card.

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Cool Treats, Frozen Treats Framelits

I went for a stamp set I haven’t used to waaaaay to long – the gorgeous Cool Treats and the coordinating framelit Frozen Treats. I thought this set just seemed to fit nicely with this colour combination…. and was fun… and bright… and cheerful!

I started by creating the inner panel first, starting with the yummy bowl of gelati… I can just feel summer coming, can you? I decided to layer this with Soft Sky cardstock and use some Soft Sky ribbon. I wanted to add some interest to the background, so I stamped some sprinkles in the different colours.

Once I finished my main elements there, I create the background on the cardbase. I decided on my sentiment first and masked off the bottom third and stamped ice-creams around the edge in coordinating colours to match my gelati.

I just love all the little details in the Frozen Treats framelits, like this cute little spoon!

CTC153 – Case a Holiday Catalogue Tag

CTC-BlogBanner

We are heading towards that time of Christmas where it will be all about the gifts. This week at Caseing The Catty, we are featuring Holiday Catalogue Gift tags. Welcome to you if you are starting here with me or if you have hopped over from Angela.

CTC153_051117

There are so many gift tag samples for you to recreate or ideas to help you create your own. What tags to make can be one tough choice to make. This week I’ve taken inspiration from this card (top left) in the Holiday catalogue. It’s on Page 35 and features the Snowflake Sentiment bundle.

I’ve taken the detail from the card – the red tag base, the white snowflake detail, the Lime circle, the sentiment on top and that cute little bow embellishment – and turned into a tag. Here is what I made…

Rose Packer, Creative Roses, Stampin' Up! Snowflake Sentiments, Swirly Snowflakes thinlits

I featured this same bundle – Snowflake Sentiments. I created my base tag in Elegant Eggplant, I punched out snowflakes from Silver Foil from the edgelits and trimmed them down to suit. My circle detail is from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer paper.

I heat embossed the sentiment in silver powder and punched it using the Everyday label punch, which I trimmed down so that you could see more of that yummy glimmer circle. Lastly, I used the swirl die from the set to create the embellishment detail. Being a tag, I added some ribbon to the top to finish it off.

I decided to create another one using warmer colours – this is what it looks like in Vanilla and Gold.

It’s a really great design and you can make it suit many colour combinations to make your gifts look just gorgeous this year.
