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.

Until next time… Stamp Creatively,

CTC150 – Favourite Big Shot Project – Holiday Catalogue

CTC-BlogBanner

So this was a really hard challenge this week at Caseing The Catty. I mean… how do you choose a favourite big shot project!! You’re “favourite” usually means one right? There-in lies my problem… there are waaaaaaay too many great projects to just one.

But I settle on this one – it’s my favourite… well for this week anyway!

TagsTrimmings

It’s the Stocking trim die and it’s a beauty.

Here I have made a gift package with it, using the pillow box attachment that comes with the die. You can pop all sorts of goodies inside from chocolates, to money or gift cards.

You can dress them up in so many different ways too, here I have kept it simple this time, but I’ll be back with some dressed up versions soon, I’m sure. I added some Designer Series Paper to the top, toe and heal and a Silver foil bell with a bow tied from thread. I heat embossed the sentiment with white embossing powder, making it stand out against the Real Red cardstock, and this sentiment, from the coordinating Tags & Trimming stamp set, eludes to the it being a package too!

I just love all the different elements you get in this die set, that allows you to finish it off in so many different ways. I particularly love the star and heart which has that lovely stitched detail.

Look out for more posts using this bundle. I’m having a lot of fun with it.

Next up on the hop is Peta Stephen.
