You’re the best with Wood Textures DSP

Today I’m sharing something a little bit different. It’s a gift box made with the fabulous Wood Textures DSP.

Gift Box using Wood Textures DSP from Stampin' Up! Project designed by Karen Young at HIPPOFROG Designs

It’s nearing the end of term, so time to get ahead on gifts for teachers (or students). What better way to say Thank you than a gift in pretty handmade packaging?

This box uses just one piece of 6×6″ DSP so is really economical to make. If you are using standard 12×12″ DSP you can create 4 boxes from one sheet.

It’s a really easy box to make as the DSP needs scoring at 3.5cm intervals on one side, leaving a 1cm strip for taping together. On the other side score at 3.5, 11.5 and 14cm on the other to create the bottom and top.

The sentiment from the Label me Pretty Stamp Set sits nicely on the Gold layer. A co-ordinating Gold Library Clip closes the box.

I’ve added a Very Vanilla Baker’s Twine bow to the front, but this is optional.

These little boxes are a lovely handmade gift and suitable for everyone. Great for filling with sweets, treats and little gifts. They are perfect for miniatures too, but check that the bottle size is less then 3.5cm diameter first 🙂

As the DSP packs have two sheets of each design, you can easily create a matching card similar to this or this.

If you want to get ahead and start making, then make sure you check back on 1st July when the fabulous Buy 3, get 1 FREE offer returns on selected DSP. The Wood Textures DSP is in the offer.

Last Week’s Card & Cuppa – Label Me Pretty

I can’t quite believe that it is the last Monday in October already.  Where has the year gone?

As it’s Monday, I’m here to show you last week’s Card & Cuppa project.

Stampin' Up! Label Me Pretty HIPPOFROG Designs

First, we used the Hardwood Background Stamp in Sahara Sand for the panelled look.

Then, the leaves from the Jar of Love Stamp Set stamped in Old Olive softened the edge slightly.  These were a mixture of first, second and third stamping after inking.

Next we used the Label Me Pretty Stamp Set and Pretty Label Punch Bundle to create the centre sentiment.  It was coloured using Watercolor Pencils with the only stipulation being that Old Olive and Calypso Coral much be used somewhere to co-ordinate all the elements.

Don’t you love how the Pretty Label Punch fits beautifully on the new Everyday Label Punch?

A strip of Natural Trim Ribbon across the centre and Wink of Stella on the flowers add a touch of sparkle.

Customer ‘Thank you’ cards – Label Me Pretty

A big thank you to everyone who has placed an order with me over the past few weeks.

Here is the pretty notecard I sent to say thank you.

Stampin' Up! Label Me Pretty

I decided to head back to one of my favourite designs, monochrome using Whisper White and Sweet Sugarplum.

This time I’ve mixed it with a brand new stamp set and ribbon from the Annual Catalogue.

The Stamp Set is Label Me Pretty and comes with a matching Punch.  These are availale to purchase as a bundle with a 10% saving.

I’ve  used Touches of Texture to create a splatter background before adding a strip of the gorgeous Striped Grosgrain Ribbon.

Before I started to layer the sentiment I used a Stampin’ Write Marker to colour the piece of the sentiment I wanted.  I then punched that out. I also stamped the pretty edged flourish and cut that out by hand cutting close to the line.

Using a blank punched cirlce and pretty label shape I was then able to layer everything together to complete the project.

If you are thinking about placing an order and it is £99 or more, why not take a look at this month’s Special Offer and join Stampin’ Up!  You’ll receive £195 of products, including not yet released products for just £99.  I’d love to welcome you to my team.
