Saying it with Love

Kia Ora and Welcome Back

I have had some new products come in and I have been having a play and I must say I was quite impressed by my results.  I have used a new Crafter’s Companion embossing folder called Rambling Rose and new cardstock and stamens from iCraft for my flowers.  I am so in love with the cardstock from iCraft.  My flowers were so easy to craft and the cardstock did not get soggy and break.

This was the first card I have made for a while that has not been for the Design Team and I had a lot of fun making it but there is no tutorial sorry.

Don’t forget to check back on Wednesday for Inspiration Wednesday at Heartfelt Creations.

This week I have two projects to show you for Inspiration Wednesday at Heartfelt Creations.  First up is this lovely trinket box that was actually very easy to make.  I had seen a similar box on Pinterest here, but there were no instructions on how to make it so I had to make my own.

 

Materials Used:

HCDP1-285 Camellia Carnation Paper Collection

HCPC-3806 Small Carnation Stamp

HCD1-7164 Small Carnation Die

HCD1-7161 Sweetheart Borders Die

HCST1-401 Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit

Hot glue gun, Die cutting machine, Crafter’s Companion Centura Pearl White Cardstock, Spellbinders Decorative Scallops Die, Stazon Pink Cherry ink, Stazon Forest Green ink

Instructions:

To make the bottom of the box cut a piece of Centura Pearl White cardstock 7 ½” x 9 ½”.  Score each side at 2” and then score on the diagonal at the corners of the card.

Fold along the score lines using a bone folder.  Fold the corner flaps in to create the box and adhere the flaps to the sides of the box with Dries Clear Glue.

Cut two strips of the striped patterned paper at 1 1/16th” x 5 6/8th” for the long side and two strips 1 1/16th” x 3 6/8th” for the short sides of the box.  Adhere them to the sides with Dries Clear glue.  Die cut the largest decorative die from the Decorative Scallops die from the Centura Pearl White cardstock and adhere the base of the box to the top of this die.  Adhere pearls around the base of the box to cover the join.

To make the top of the box cut a piece of Centura Pearl White cardstock 7 5/8th” x 5 5/8th”.  Score each side at 1” and then score on the diagonal at the corners of the card.  Fold along the score lines using a bone folder.

Fold the corner flaps in to create the box and adhere the flaps to the sides of the box with Dries Clear glue.

Cut two strips of pink patterned paper 7/8th” x 5 ½” for the long sides of the box top and two strips of patterned paper at 7/8th” x 3 ½” for the short sides.  Adhere to the sides with Dries Clear glue.  Cut four lace edges from the HCD1-7161 Sweetheart Borders Die set in the Centura Pearl White cardstock.  Trim and adhere to the four sides.  Cut two strips of the  carnations and flowers strip from the patterned paper ½” x 5 ½” for the long sides and ½” x 3 ½” for the short sides and adhere over the edge of the lace trim.  Adhere pearls to the sides on the join as shown.  Die cut the largest decorative die from the Decorative Scallop die from the Centura Pearl White cardstock and adhere to the top of the box lid with the good side facing up.

 

Cut the patterned piece from the paper collection that measures 5 8/16th ” x 3 8/16th” and adhere to the top of the box.  Die cut the next size down decorative die from the Decorative Scallop edge die set in the Centura Pearl White cardstock and adhere on the top of the box with foam tape.  Cut the small coordinating panel from the patterned paper 2 ¼” x 4 ¼” and adhere to the top with Dries Clear glue.  Add pearls around the edge of both scallop borders.

To create the flowers, stamp the images from the Small Carnation stamp set using Stazon Cherry Pink and Black Cherry inks on Art Foam Paper and die cut using the coordinating dies.  I have used the three largest sizes here.  Sponge the edges of the petals with 3D Stamp Paint – I have used Pink with the Cherry Pink and Carmine Red with the Black Cherry stamped petals.  Add Frosting Powder to the petals with Dries Clear Glue using a damp sponge.  Heat and shape using your fingers and the tools from the Deluxe Flower Shaping kit.  Assemble the flowers using two larger and one smaller petal and adhere together with a hot glue gun.  Take some fluffy white stamens from the Bridal Bouquet – Small set and dark pink Rock Candy stamens and fold in half, poke a hole through the centres of the flowers and pull through the stamens using a small piece of scrap wire.  Add glue to the backs and trim the threads.  Adhere the flowers to the top of the box with a hot glue gun.  Add the red rock candy stamens to a single small flower, poke a hole through the centre of the flower and pull through the stamens using a small piece of scrap wire.  Add glue to the back of the flower and trim the ends before adhering to the box as shown.

To make the leaves stamp the leaf images from the Small Carnation stamp set on Art Foam Paper in Forest Green ink.  Sponge the leaves with Lime Pastel ink and die cut using the coordinating dies.  Sponge the edges with Grass Green stamp paint, heat and shape lightly.  Adhere around the flowers as shown with a hot glue gun.

Add Ultrafine Crystal glitter to the flowers and leaves on the patterned paper with Dries Clear glue.

I hope these instructions are easy to follow but if they are not please feel free to contact me for assistance.
