Easy Tiny Treat Box with Faceted Closure - Video Tutorial

I took an old project of mine and scaled it right down to create these super cute little tiny treat boxes with a faceted closure.   My scaled down design has been sized so that the boxes can hold four scented tealights or just some little treats, such as chocolate truffles or little sweet treats.

I have used my Detailed Trio Punch for the pretty punched corner detail.


These would make great little projects to sell at Craft Fayres.   You could even make them up in Christmas papers and hang them on your Christmas tree !  Not only are they cute and quick to make; they are versatile too.

I have a short video tutorial to share:-



I do hope you like this little project and feel motivated to have a go at creating these easy little treat boxes.

Thanks for looking and please pop back.

Bye for now and ...................."Happy Stampin!"

Subtle Blends Highlights & Dandelion Wishes

Today's project uses the pretty Dandelion Wishes stamp set.


I decided to experiment with adding tone on tone highlighting and used my Dark Balmy Blue Stampin' Blends marker pen over random "petals" and the centre of the dandelions on my white heat embossed panel.  I added some rhinestone embellishments for a little sparkle.   I also used my Blends marker to colour/darken the larger of my die-cut circles.


I am really pleased with the finished card and it has inspired me to make another pretty card which I will share with you tomorrow.

I do hope you like it.  Thank you for stopping by and looking and I hope you will pop back.

Ciao for now and ..........................."Happy Stampin!".

Spotlight Stamping Technique - Band Together Stamp Set

I watched a great tutorial by Jennifer MacGuire which inspired me to try the Spotlight Stamping technique.



I found I didn't have a large suitable floral background stamp, so I used one of the large flowers in the Band Together stamp set.  I decided to cut the head away from the stem of my large stamp, as it makes stamping the flower so much easier and I can always stamp the stem separately, if and when I decided to use the flower and stem together for future projects.

The stamping in Smokey Slate ink on the main background panel is not as pale as I would have liked it to be.  I did second generation stamping for that layer, but it is the palest look that I could achieve without losing the detail of the flowers. 

The heart which forms the focal point was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink and was die-cut before I coloured it using a selection of my Stampin' Blends pens.



I really enjoyed making this card, although it was a little labour intensive.  I used my Stamparatus to stamp up each layer, adding and removing each piece from my positioning tool as I stamped each of the flowers, to make sure my layers would line up after I die cut the heart shaped spotlight piece. The process would not have taken long if I had been able to use just one large background stamp.  But it was enjoyable and relaxing and I am really pleased with the finished card.

Have you tried spotlight stamping ?   If not, why not give it a try.  It's a great technique.

Well that's it from me for today.  I do hope you like my card and maybe feel motivated to give spotlight stamping a go.

Thank you for looking.

Bye for now and....................."Happy Stampin!".

Pretty Chalk Inking onto Coloured Card Stock - Video Tutorial

I used a technique which I haven't in a while for today's project. 

I did some pretty chalk inking using my Whisper White Craft Stampin' Pad and a selection of inks.

I used my Be Mine Stitched Dies and Meant to Be coordinating stamp set, stamping and heat embossing the pretty image, before colouring and die cutting it.


I love the simplicity of this design and the clean and simple look, which I think is my favourite style of cardmaking.

I have a step by step video tutorial taking you through the process.  I do hope you find it helpful:-



Thanks for stopping by and I would love you to pop back.

Bye for now everybody, and ......................"Happy Stampin!".
