From My Heart Ferrero Rocher Gift Box

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you my From My Heart Ferrero Rocher Gift Box. I created this box to hold four Ferrero Rocher Candies, (which by the way is one of my favorites). This is a great little project for Valentine's Day, and since it is just around the corner.I used the From My Heart Designer Series Paper for the main focus of my box. Here's a look at the box.

Tips & Tricks:

For the box you will need a 7 x 7" piece of cardstock scored at 2" on all four sides. Well actually its just shy of 7 x 7. I cut it on my new trimmer and came back just one notch on it from the 7" mark so its' 6 and something 16th of an inch. I used both a piece of Real Red and Flirty Flamingo Cardstock for the box bases. I pulled these colors from the designer series paper; which I used for the tops. I cut the tops at 5 x 5 and scored at 1" all the way around.
I stamped my sentiment from the Heartfelt Stamp set in the center of one of the hearts in the Designer Series paper. Most of the sentiments from the stamp set will fit. I used Real Red ink for the sentiment. The little heart you see was also punched from the designer series paper with the dog punch. The heart on this punch is almost a perfect fit, there's just a very little over hang.

Beautifully Braided Thank You Card

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you a super cute little thank you card using the new Beautifully Braided Bundle from the 2020 Stampin' Up! January - June Mini Catalog.  My card today features the large floral image from the stamp set and a little stampin' blend coloring.  Since I need to make a few thank you cards I thought it was the prefect time to play with this new set.  Here's a look at my card.

The Beautifully Braided Bundle: 

The Beautifully Braided Bundle includes the Beautifully Braided Stamp Set and the Braided Border Punch.  Create elegant borders with flowers, scallops, and braided patterns in the Beautifully Braided Stamp Set.  With the included phrases, you can make greeting cards for your friends.  Cut a beautiful braided border for your cards and paper crafts using the Braided Border Punch.  Punch, align, and repeat to create a custom-sized border.
Image by Stampin' Up! 

Tips & Tricks: 

I thought that the Beautifully Braided stamp set matched perfectly with the florals from the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper.  I pulled the colors that I used for my card from this pack of designer series paper.  I used Purple Posy, Lovely Lipstick, and Old Olive as my main colors.  I did pop in a little Petal Pink just for fun.  
I used my Stampratus to stamp the large flower from the stamp set onto a piece of whisper white card stock and colored it in with my Purple Posey Old Olive and Lovely Lipstick Stampin' Blends.  I added the colored image onto a piece of Old Olive cardstock to act as a mask.   I cut a small piece of the designer series paper and some scraps of old olive.  I used the scrap to punch out the braid from the braided border Punch.  I then split it down the middle to added it to the top and bottom of the designer series paper.  Once the designer series paper and braid was attached to the card I popped up the flower panel using dimensionals after adding a little of the Petal Pink Metallic Edge Ribbon to the bottom of it and added a flat knot.  To finish off the card I added a few of the Champagne rhinestones.  
Thanks for dropping by I hope that you have a wonderful day.  Remember that you can pick up all these supplies now in my online store.  
Happy Stampin'
