Dressed to Impress Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am sharing with you the other box that I made last week and told you I would share it with you later.  This is a very famine version of the Beautiful World and Forever Greenery Boxes I shared last week.  If you missed those posts, I have linked them for you above.   With this box I wanted to showcase the Dressed to Impress Bundle and products that are in that suite from the January-June Mini Catalog.  Sadly, most of these products are on the retiring list.   But I am quite sure everything I used is still available.  Here is a look at my project.

For this box you will need a piece of Petal Pink Cardstock cut at 8 ½ x 10 1/2.  I scored on the 10 ½” side at ½”, 3 ½”, 5 ½” and 8 ½”.  The other two score lines are on the 8 ½” side and they are at 2” and 6 ½”.  I told you it was simple.  The box is made the same as the other two so make sure to check out those post.  The Forever Greenery Box has a video tutorial that walks you step by step on how to make the boxes.

For this box I went with the stripped pattern from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper Pack and added it to the front, two sides, and top.  I picked Purple Posy Cardstock to mat the designer series paper before adding it to the box.  I thought that the Purple Posy was a great choice to add to the box since it was in my chosen paper.

Next, I stamped the lipstick and perfume images from the stamp set in Basic Gray Classic Ink on Whisper White Cardstock and cut them out with the matching dies.  Then I added a little color to each image with the wash image from the stamp set.  There are a couple different size images to color the images without having to color.  I stamped the lipstick base in Basic Gray Classic Ink and the top in Lovely Lipstick Classic Ink.  The inside of the perfume bottle was stamped with Petal Pink Classic Ink.

After I had the focal images stamped and colored it was time to do a sentiment.  I stamped the Be as Bold as Your Lipstick Sentiment in Basic Gray Classic Ink on Whisper White Cardstock.  And then punched it out with a 2” Circle Punch.

After all the stamping was complete, I took the 1/8” Sheer Mint Macaron Ribbon and tied around the box.  I then layered the perfume bottle and lipstick tube up on dimensionals.  I let the perfume bottle layer over the ribbon but still allowed the ribbon to slide through.  I then added my sentiment on dimensionals.

To finish off the box I added a few Basic Rhinestones to add just the right amount of sparkle and shine.  Thanks for dropping by today.  If you need any of the supplies you have seen today you can pick them up in my online store from the links below.

Three cards using Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp - Stampin' Up! (Facebook Live Mini Class)

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you the cards that I made during my Facebook Live Mini Class last night.  Each week on Wednesday I do a Free Facebook Live Mini Class featuring a stamp set or bundle from one of the new Stampin' Up!'s catalogs.  If you have never joined me during one of my lives I go live every Wednesday at 8 pm CST except the second Wednesday of the month then I go live at 3 pm CST.  Last night I focused on the Breathtaking Bouquet Background Stamp Set as the main focus of my projects, and shared three different ways to use it.  I picked the Breathtaking Bouquet stamp set to feature in last nights mini class because it was one of the stamps I feel in love with when I first saw it in the new January-June Mini Catalog.  I love how all the flowers are perfectly placed and come out just so striking.   Here's a look at my cards.

Tips & Tricks: 


For my first card I did a little ink blending to start out with Whisper White Craft Ink in the center of the Pretty Peacock cardstock and then I used Pretty Peacock and Night of Navy inks around the edges before heat embossing the background stamp on top.  By starting out on a piece of colored cardstock it makes your ink blending easier because you don't have to ink blend so much.  By adding the whisper white in the center and blending outwards you create a glow in the center of the cardstock, as you can see above.  


For the second card I stamped the background in Crumb Cake ink on my Crumb Cake base.  Once I had that done I added a piece of Whisper White cardstock to the stamparatus and stamped again using tuxedo black ink.  I then did a little fussy cutting for the rose.  I then took it and did a little quick coloring.  I swiped some color onto it with my Dark Petal Pink Stampin' Blend marker, and then used the textured stamp from Dressed to Impress Stamp set.  This allowed me to do some quick coloring without a lot of work.  


For my last card I stamped the background stamp on Whisper White in Petal Pink ink and cut it down to 3 1/2 x 5 1/2.  I matted it onto a piece of Lovely Lipstick cardstock and then onto a Purple Posy card base.  I added a piece of the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper matted with Lovely Lipstick to the front of the card to add a little color and texture.  I heat embossed the sentiment onto a little Lovely Lipstick piece.
