Peony Waterfall Explosion Box

Hello again

Today is all about the Stampin' Up! Peony Garden suite of products. I was pretty pleased with myself that for this project I kept all my products within this collection.

I was looking for something I hadn't made before, and I knew I wanted to make an explosion box but was stuck for ideas for the centre piece. I didn't want to make another box or cake etc and saw something similar to this on Pinterest using a Waterfall album for the centre. 

I have used the new Stitched Triangles for the pockets, added a few tags and square and circle photo mats for the Waterfall page. I kept the design fairly simple so the photos added wouldn't get lost in "busy" patterned paper. Looking at it, I am imagining the pages filled with lovely black and white  wedding photos.

Birds & Butterflies Cards & Gift Box

 
Hello again

I'm back for this week's project - a gorgeous little gift box with matching 4" x 4" cards - a great little gift for someone special.

I was so happy with my last project using these colours I thought I would make something a little different, and with another technique. For these I have used the baby wipe technique for the stamping of the birds, butterflies and postage stamp with three colours - Magenta Madness, Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay. Of course the five cards needed a little gift box as well!
As with most my projects, I have designed these so the colours can easily be swapped - just select three different coordinating ink colours and one base colour, which I have used Magenta Madness for this set.

The finished box size measures 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" x 1 1/2" and nicely fits all five cards and envelopes.

If you would like to purchase this Instruction and Inspiration Sheet, which includes a link to a Youtube video (first page) on the assembly of the box and a few tips and tricks, please click the "Buy Now" button to proceed to checkout.

Watercolour Wreath Builder Cards

What can I say??? I 💕 watercolouring .... and today I used one of the new In Colours - Magenta Madness - with Pacific Point and Bermuda Bay - and I'm totally in love with this combination.

I kinda did a silly thing though ... I bought the Wreath Builder Dies and forgot the coordinating stamp set - Arrange A Wreath - so there is no stamping on these cards except for the sentiments which were white heat embossed on Basic Black and fussy cut.

I started with a watercolour wash on a couple of pieces of watercolour paper (using reinkers and the new Water Painters), heat dried them (because I'm impatient) and just die-cut loads of flowers and wreaths, trying not to waste too much of the gorgeous colouring. There was a lot leftover after I selected the bits that I wanted to use in these cards but they will sit safely tucked away for a project down the track. Below you will find a full product list:
