Tiny Ferrero Rocher Treat Box with a Pop of Pink !


So like many demonstrators, I have been eagerly awaiting the delivery of my new products from the new upcoming Stampin' Up! annual catalogue - and they have not failed to impress.

The gorgeous new Pop of Pink 12 x 12 Designer Series Papers and co-ordinating Pop of Pink Designer Washi Tape pack are stunning.

So I came up with this pretty little package just to demonstrate precisely that !  



This little box is really super quick and easy to put together and is demonstrated here in my latest You Tube video tutorial.

Soft and Smokey Sophistication

This Blog post has now been updated with my You Tube tutorial demonstrating how to create this pretty card (see below).

I love soft neutral shades and was inspired by a beautiful card on Pinterest to make this one:-




I opted to use Smokey Slate card stock which I really do love 

The card which inspired me used this layout but featured real lace down the centre.  I decided to try and recreate it but chose to use heat embossing for the lacy detail in my version.  So the pretty lace panel was stamped and heat embossed in Whisper White Stampin' Emboss powder using the stamp set Grateful Bunch.   I also used my set Papillon Potpourri for the beautiful butterflies which were punched using the Bitty Butterfly and Elegant Butterfly punches. These were further embellished with some decorative pearls.  That is what I love about Stampin' Up! products - co-ordinating stamps and punches give cards such a professional touch.

I ran some Silver Satin Ribbon through the centre of the card and finished with a neat little bow (which is something of a miracle for me !!).

Well actually - I didn't finish it there.  I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel that after creating a little mini masterpiece, I then go an spoil it on the inside with my untidy handwriting.  Chicken scratch !!! That is how a former teacher once referred to it.  So as this is a note card, which is why I have left it free of any sentiment on the front, I made a cute little envelope using the Envelope Punch Board for the inside to hide away my untidy missive to my friend.



The inside layer of Whisper White cardstock has been stamped with a motif from the set First Sight and the sentiment "Just a Note" comes from the set Picture Perfect.

Well I do hope you like today's little project.

Here is the card that inspired my version :-

Exploding Nail Varnish Gift Box plus Details of My Give Away !

This post has now been updated with the video tutorial.  Be warned its a bit of a marathon, nearly 45 minutes long.  So grab yourself a coffee and few bickies.  But do remember, there is a always the pause button !!!!!  Please see below.

I have been exploring the wonders of Pinterest yet again for inspiration - and low and behold inspiration hit me straight between the eyes when I chanced up a gorgeous exploding box complete with nail varnish, by none other than one of my own team.

So Yvonne, it was you who inspired me to come up with this little baby - thank you.  With your permission I will add a link to your Pin later.




I used Melon Mambo card stock and Designer Series Paper from the 12 x 12 Designer Series Brights Collection, some Whisper White card stock and Black.

Out came my gorgeous Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and Ribbon Builder Punch too !!

The sentiment inside is from the Cottage Greetings stamp set which I am delighted to say is carrying over into the new annual catalogue which will become available in June.  I will be sending a copy free of charge to my customers as soon as I have them to hand.  

Whilst this may look like it would be tricky to make, it really isn't.  I just needed my trusty Simply Scored and two punches, my 1" Circle Punch and the 1 1/4" Circle Inch Punch to create the holder which the Maybelline Colour Show Nail Varnish fits into perfectly.  

I am planning on doing an afternoon workshop where my attendees will create one to take home, complete with Nail Varnish of course !!     



Also - Who fancies a give-a-way ?   !!!!   

All customers who place orders over £25 excluding postage from me during May will be entered into a draw on 1 June.   The name which is pulled out will receive a cute Exploding Gift Box and Nail Varnish, together with a Wink of Stella Brush (clear) worth £7.25 and my own retiring Corner Garden beautiful background stamp (which has been slightly used)

Corner Garden large Background Stamp (clear mount)
Hope you like it and thank you for stopping by today.

Layering on the Beautiful Blossoms


I needed a quick card - and well this was just perfect !


This card fits a standard C6 envelope and basically is all about the layers.

Layers of Whisper White and Pool Party cardstock, the top layer having been embossed with the Elegant Dots Embossing Folder.

Then yet again - more layers ! in the form of the pretty flowers which were punched using the Blossom Bunch Punch, and were finished off with some pretty enamel dot embellishments (these are not from Stampin' Up!).

The sentiment comes from the gorgeous Hopeful Thoughts stamp set.

Put together in a few minutes and good to go.

The card was inspired again by a little rummage around Pinterest.

I found this Pin and the simplicity of the design appealed to me from afrenchaccent.blogspot.com

 Hope you like todays simple but effective project.

Thank you for stopping by.
