#stampinup #faithfulinkspirations #creationstation How can it be July already?! The new Stampin' Up annual catalog has been out for a month now and I'm still finding new things in there that I'm going to need to buy and play with. One of the first things Stampin' Up fans look for (after we check to make sure that "Lovely As A Tree" has carried over for the millionth time--seriously, 16 years and counting!) is the new In Colors. I love the way Stampin' Up gives us FIVE new colors every season. That really keeps the palette fresh!
This month, your Creation Station design team is featuring the new 2017-2019 In Color Collection in our creations.
I thought it would be fun to make a boxed note card set using one of my favorite sets from the new catalog, "Daisy Delight," and all the new In Colors! The box is super easy to make, and it uses only one sheet of 8-1/2" by 1" card stock. You can take a look at the tutorial by clicking the "tutorials" button at the top of my blog.
The base of the box is made from Fresh Fig Card Stock and I used two Berry Burst sheets of the Color Theory Designer Series Paper on the top and bottom flaps. Each piece of DSP has a Powder Pink mat to frame it against the box. The belly band has a strip of Tranquil Tide DSP from the Delightful Daisy collection. I tied a length of Powder Pink Shimmer Ribbon around the belly band, too. You can really see the shimmer in the closer picture below.
Next I stamped the large daisy from the "Daisy Delight" set in Tranquil Tide onto Lemon Lime Twist Card Stock. I did this twice and punched both daisies out with the matching Daisy Punch. I used my bone folder to curl the petals. I adhered the two daisy pieces together with a couple of Glue Dots and adhered the daisy to the belly band with a few more glue dots. I added a clear Faceted Gem to the center of the daisy. Finally, tucked a piece of a Delicate White Doily and a piece of a silver Metallic Foil Doily under the belly band.
All the note cards and their envelopes fit nicely into the box. This would make a great gift, don't you think?
