Cute Purse Style Box

The first time I tried this box out years ago,I didn’t quite get it right and probably didn’t have the patience to understand and execute the design properly….so I’m very glad Sam(from Pootles)made this very box/purse again for the way back wednesday theme that she’s been doing at her blog these days….
Here’s the link for the tutorial by Sam Hammond – Way Back Wednesday Easy Stick Purse Tutorial
It’s a very cute little purse box and can hold quite a bit inside it….for my box I have used a plain pink cardstock for the base and the top layer paper is from Stampin Up! DSP stack called It’s My Party…
I hope you liked this box and will give it a try yourself too….

Post#175 Sweet & Lovely Card

I had thought of trying out this colour combination towards the end of last year….but it looked too Halloween-y at that time…Grey,Orange & Black look great together….and here’s my card using these colours…
The card base is light grey and the top layer is orange….I have used a corner punch to round off all four corners of both layers….
To write the whole message on the card,I have split the message into three different peices…..First I stamped ‘You Are So Sweet’ with orange ink on a grey banner strip,then I heat embossed the ‘&’ with silver embossing powder and finally I die cut the word ‘lovely’ with black glitter cardstock…
I have used a silver foil card stock and black adhesive pearls to punch a few flowers to decorate the card…
Hope you like this card….

Post#85 Thanks Tag Card

I like using tags to create simple cards…and for this card I wanted to use the colour combination of blue,aqua and pink…
I started with a 5″ x 7″ aqua card base…the top layer is a marble effect blue paper…I added four strips in various widths on it and adhered the top layer to the card…
Then I die cut a large tag and added the die cut word thanks to it along with a few tiny punched out flowers and a ribbon as well…I attached the tag onto the card front and added a few more punched flowers to the card…
Hope you liked it…

Post#82 Green Slim Gift Bag

I am very excited to share today’s project with you…Its a gift bag with an open top… and I came up with all the dimensions myself…someone else may have made it before but I did not look up any tutorials at all…this was my attempt at learning the basics of creating a gift bag of a particular size with specific measurements…
I started with an A4 size cardstock and trimmed the length to 11-1/2″….I kept the width of the paper as is at 8-1/4″ so the dimensions of the paper are 11-1/2″ x 8-1/4″
Then I scored the short side of the paper at 1″…this will be the base of the bag…
The long side was scored at 1″, 5-1/4″,6-1/4″ and 10-1/2″
Staying on the long side I scored a half score line at 1/2″, 5-3/4″ and 11″ 
These part score lines will help the sides of the bag to fold in together a bit easier…
I burnished the score lines and cut all four score lines running upto the 1″ base score line on the short side….then I used a strong adhesive to attach the sides and bottom of the bag…the final bag measures 7″ x 4-1/4″ and is 1″ wide
I used a small doily to cover the top of the bag and punched a hole through all the layers to thread the ribbon for closing the bag…also added a few punched our flowers from white cardstock to decorate the bag…
I had a huge amount of fun creating this bag….Hope you liked it too…
Thanks for stopping by…

Post#70 Giftbag and Matching Tag

I’m experimenting with Twinkling H2O watercolours and still haven’t been able to use them properly….but they are so vibrant and glossy that my experiments aren’t going to waste…I was able to use them in my projects quite easily….
Today I’m sharing two such projects…..The first one is a gift bag made out of two layers of the largest die from the eyelet scallop square die set…there is a tiny  box in the middle on which these die cuts get attached….I punched two holes in the box to thread the ribbons through…
To decorate the front of the box I die cut a scalloped square piece from the sheet of paper I had stamped using an embossing folder and twinkilng h2o’s….on that I added three banners in various sizes and colours and rounded the straight edges…also added a few punched flowers and a button as embellishments…
The second project turned out a bit better when I used watercolours on the same embossing folder to stamp on the tag…it gives a very shimmery effect but sadly I am not able to show that in this photo….
I simply punched a banner and stamped the sentiment on it and attached it to the tag with the ribbons…I also added a few flowers with tiny rhinestones in the middle…
Hope you liked my creations…

Post#51 Shaker Bookmarks

Now that I have successfully tried out the WRMK photo sleeve fuse tool to make a tag, I tried to make a bookmark….bookmarks need to be quite flat and not bulky at all so I had to be careful about not adding any layers on the bookmark and also that the filling in the shaker pocket is quite flat and does not poke out to damage the pages of the book….

I took a narrow and long piece of paper to start with and folded it in half….then die cut a shape through both the layers…The plastic pocket sits between these two layers……I filled one of the bookmarks pocket with plastic flowers and the other with punched out 1/4″ circles from paper in various colours…
One of the bookmarks has a few beads on a ribbon attached to the top and the other has a tassel that I made out of bakers twine…
I wonder what else I can try out with the fuse tool….
Hope you liked these bookmarks…

Post#26 Bokeh Effect Card

A bokeh effect card background has been on my to do list for a very long time…every time I looked up a tutorial,I thought it wasn’t my cup of tea as it involved repeating a lot of steps which involved heat embossing etc……I wanted and easier and quicker version so I came up with my own technique for this card …
I started with a stencil and mustard seed distress ink and printed circles in various sizes all over one section of the card….then I did the same with clear Versamark ink and covered the rest of the section lightly with mowed lawn and shabby shutters distress inks and a bit of mustard seed distress ink as well….and lastly I used white pigment ink to lightly print a few circles here and there…
The sentiment is stamped on a circle and attached to the paper bow using a gold string…
Hope you liked this card…
