Beauty Blossoms From the Inside

Hello friends  & Welcome to Inspired by Stamping inspiration post.

This is my last post as DT for Inspired by Stamping
The last 3 years as IBS DT member were amazing...I thoroughly enjoyed it but I won't be able to continue next year because of some personal reasons... Thanks a lot Joanna for having me here...
I would also like to thank all the lovely readers who always encouraged me with their wonderful comments!

Now moving onto my card & a short tutorial...
I have used Cherry Blossoms & Words of Inspiration II for today's card
20161206_212621
I started with stamping the  Cherry Blossoms stamp set with Black Archival ink & colored it with Gansai Tambi Waterolors & koi waterbrush. Once colored I fussy cut it.

Next I die cut a piece of white cardstock with Geometric Lattice Coverplate Die, trimmed it & adhered it to a piece of white cardstock inked with Salty Ocean Distress Ink. I stamped the sentiment from Words of Inspiration II on 4 x 5 1/4" white cardstock.

Now its time to assemble the card. The sentiment panel was mounted on a A2 card base inked with Salty Ocean Distress Ink & then the die cut panel was adhered down on that. I used foam adhesive to adhere the flowers for some added dimension. Lastly I added few drops of White Blizzard Nuvo Drops to add the finishing touch.

Envelope Punch Board Gift Box Tutorial with Heartfelt Creations


Hello friends & welcome to Heartfelt Wednesday

I am sharing a tutorial for a gift box today made using Envelope Punch Board & Pampered Pooch Collection by Heartfelt Creations.

20161204_083629
We need 2 pieces of 7" x 7" cardstock. Align all 4 sides of the cardsock at 3 1/2" mark, punch & score. Repeat this with both the pieces.
20161117_210500
Now score all 4 sides of both the pieces at 3/8".
20161117_210940
Cut off the corner squares as shown. For the top portion of the box cut off both flaps from one of the sides as shown. This will be the opening of the top portion of the box. Apply tacky tape on the flaps of the bottom piece leaving 2 flaps on one of the triangle pieces. This will be the opening of bottom portion of the box. I like to decorate the box with pattern papers at this point.
20161203_162345
Carefully align and adhere the top & bottom pieces. The picture below shows how it will look like after the box is assembled. Make a hole in the top & bottom opening pieces to thread the ribbon through & tie a bow to close the box.

Decorate the box with pattern papers & embellishments of your choice.

Rainbow Birthday Card

Hello friends & welcome to So Suzy Stamps inspiration post...
I have made a rainbow birthday card for today's post & I have also made a step-by-step tutorial for this card.
20161126_142428
I started out with die cutting the numbers from a white cardstock 
20161126_132524
Next I inked the card front with various shades of rainbow around the edges
20161126_133448
Now I adhered the die cut cardstock on the inked background.
20161126_134656
I used the Mini MISTI to position Number of Years stamp & stamped it with black archival ink on the card front. I used die cuts for Happy & Birthday. I inked a piece of white cardstock with same inks as the background & die cut it with the happy die & I used black cardstock to die cut the Birthday. I adhered them on the card front to finish the card.
