I’ve used the Beautiful Bunch stamp set a few times lately to show case its versatility. Today’s cards are Thank You cards using this same set. I’ve again used the 2014 – 2016 In Colours of Lost Lagoon and Blackberry Bliss with a touch of Hello Honey for the flower centres. With this card I have used Gorgeous Grunge for the background and Sassy Salutations for the sentiment and added the Lost Lagoon Stitched Satin ribbon as a feature behind… Read more »

Don’t you just love versatile products. the Bow Builder Punch and Tiny Treat Boxes are two such products. Look what happens when you combine them with some lovely Designer Series Paper: We made this at our Latte Girls Team Meeting last Sunday as well. Just assemble the Tiny Treat Box, add some Best Year Ever (or your favourite) Designer Series Paper and punch out enough for four complete bows for the lid. You only need Multipurpose Liquid Glue to get… Read more »

Looking for a quick and easy birthday card? The Bow Builder Punch can help you make great cards for many different occasions. This is a card we made at a party so it was quick and easy with a little bit of stamping, a little bit of texture and a little bit of punching. Here’s a side view. The Gold Foil makes this card look amazing with the Coastal Cabana. Product List Bow Builder Punch [137414] $29.95 Big Day Wood… Read more »

Do you have problems finding exactly the right male card you need for a birthday? Well, I can help you with that. Why not make your own? Here’s one I made using the Bow Builder Punch and the Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack. I also used the Big Day Stamp Set for the sentiment and drew the buttons on the shirt. I’ve inked around the edges of the Designer Series Paper and used what I cut off the paper… Read more »

I don’t have a video for you today but I do have a tutorial. Now this is a ‘Round Box’ with the Scallop Tag Punch used to close it. It’s actually a bit of an optical illusion and relies heavily on correct scoring and closure.   INSTRUCTIONS Card measures 21cm x desired height. So this one is 10cm tall with3.5cm on the bottom and 5cm on the top. So in total my box is 21cm x 18.5cm Note – you… Read more »

Today I have a mint box for you. It has opening/closing ends and a window so the item inside can be seen. I explain on the video how I measure up a product to make a box for it. These are the boxes I made for a recent market stall. I made them specifically for Fathers’ Day which is the first Sunday in September here in Australia. I used the Decorative Label Punch and the Kraft card Stock for these… Read more »

I have a cute little box for you today. When I was in one of the dollar stores the other day I found these Mento Chewing Gum containers which I thought would be great as gifts. Fathers’ Day is approaching on 7th September, so I thought they’d make the ideal gift. I do have a video tutorial below for you, however I must apologise for the quality of the lighting. I think I had the camera angle wrong and the… Read more »

Monday Makes this week features the Hardwood Stamp. Now I have the wood mounted stamp, as my personal preference for large background stamps such as these, is to use wood mount. Now the trick to using these large stamps, I find it to ensure you press the ink well onto all areas of the stamp. Line your card and the stamp up with your grid paper and stamp. I make sure I press all areas of the stamp onto the card,… Read more »

Last week I shared some photos of the Pop-Up Matchbox Card In A Box which will hold a Gift Card. I shared with you Rachael Lewsley’s site My Stampin’ Haven which is where I got the original idea. My project is a little different in that the box itself is a bit deeper and wider to accommodate a gift card being placed in the back of it in either the landscape or portrait position. Below is a picture of the… Read more »

Hello again. I meant to post this Friday as I wanted Friday to become my regular video day. However, new technology and old technology made things a little difficult. So here it is a couple of days late but I hope you enjoy it anyway. It’s a box made using the Angled Tag Topper Punch from the current Occasions Catalogue.   It fits a load of chocolates in it. However, think ahead to Mothers’ Day and you could easily put: a… Read more »
