A Very Special Birthday Card

Today is a very special day…my elder daughter has turned 13 – a teenager now….can’t believe how time flies…I can clearly remember being all excited about my 13th birthday so I’m guessing it’s still a big deal for most kids… 🙂
The card that I’m sharing today is a bright and colourful one….the card base is plain orange and the top layer is a printed cardstock…I cut out the top layer in a way that the cloud print shows and becomes the background for the scene…
I then die cut four strips of paper in different shades of green using the stitched hillside borders dies and layered them at the base of the top layer….I stamped the images with the sentiments on a separate piece of white cardstock and coloured then in before cutting out and placing them on the card…
I have decorated the card with some die cut gold sequins…

Sunshine,Laughter & Flowers Card

I used to love using patterned cardstock for card bases when I started cardmaking…but slowly I stopped using it altogether…I agree that a white card base brings out the most in a card,but I still can’t stop myself from using coloured card bases and even printed cardstock bases once in a while…
So on a printed light+dark green card base,I prepared a white top layer by first masking off a triangular area near to bottom and then stamping a flower background stamp with light pink ink…once that was done,I used a ruler and pink maker to draw a line under the stamped area to make two distinct zones on the card…I stamped a dotted line stamp with green ink under the pink line…and finally stamped the sentiment under it…
The image at the base of the card is a clear stamp from Fizzy Moon called Special Wishes and I have cut it out from a separate piece of paper after colouring it in…
Once the top layer was ready and adhered to the card,I punched out some tiny butterflies from gold glitter cardstock and glued them randomly onto the card…
Hope you liked this card….

Post#162 No Cut,No Stick Box Idea by Pootles

At first I just saw a picture of this box by Sam and really couldn’t believe that it was a no cut no stick box….it didn’t look like one…then I saw the tutorial video and tried it out myself….it’s more of a paper folding technique and creates a very nice size box….
The box is 2″x 7″ in size so it can hold quite a wide variety of goodies in it…especially things like stationery items…
Here is the link for the tutorial for this box – No Cut No Stick Box by Sam Hammond
I have used plain blue cardstock to make the box and printed pink paper for the DSP panels….then I stamped the sentiment on a 1″ banner punched from silver cardstock and another two from the same cardstock I used to make the box…then I attached all them using a brad and stuck them to the front of the box..
Do try this box…you’ll be pleased with the results…

Post#67 Bright Gift Box

I have seen so many pins on Pinterest where crafters have used the Stampin Up Tag Topper Punch to create a whole lot of projects..it is quite interesting to see, learn and create all these things…
So I made a box using the WRMK 1 2 3 Punch board…once that was done I took a piece of paper 2″ wide and 12” long and punched it on one end using the tag topper punch…then starting on the top I wrapped it around the box and creased it at every corner…I marked the point where I wanted to punch on the other end and then punched it….I then looped a ribbon through the two ends and tied it into a bow…
This was one of the simplest projects…and a great way to create a band to close a gift box……I will definitely look into trying out some more things with this punch or even coming up with something of my own…
Thanks for visiting my blog…

Post#65 ‘Made With Love’ Rectangular Gift Box

Coming up with dimensions for a gift box is not as easy as it seems…I took a pretty long time to get things right with this box…..So hats off to anyone and everyone who has managed to create a box or a gift bag from scratch with their own dimensions…
The aim was to make a long rectangular box to fit in a good amount of goodies inside…and so after a lot of tries I finally came up with dimensions for this box…The final box is about 7″ long and 2″ wide and 2″ tall..
Since I chose a printed cardstock for the box, I wanted the print to be seen and not covered up by decorations and paper bands…so I chose a small gold doily as the only decoration and closed the box using a gold stretchy string….
There is also a stamped tag on the box which has been die cut out of acetate and stamped with StazOn white pigment ink…
Hope you liked this box…

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…
