Pansy Favour Box

Good Evening!

Today I was invited to a crafty afternoon with the wonderful Lola. I wanted to bring her a little present, and I thought Linda’s lovely little gift box was the perfect opportunity for that. Not only is it beautiful, but it doesn’t need any adhesive so I was eager to give it a go. Go and watch Linda’s video on how to make it 🙂

I used Basic Grey cardstock for the box, the flower is made with the Pansy punch and the Petite Petals punch.

The cardstock colours I used are Basic grey and Smoky Slate for the box and Soft Sky and Lost Lagoon for the flower.

A few pearls were added to add a glamourous touch to the flower. A ribbon (from my stash) closes the box.

This favour box would be perfect for a wedding or a baby shower : it’s not too big but you can still put a lot of sweets inside 😉

Hope you like it 🙂

Supplies (Stampin’Up!) :

  • Stamp sets : Tiny Tags
  • Inks : Smoky Slate, Soft Sky
  • Papers: Basic Grey, Smoky Slate, soft Sky, Lost Lagoon

Let’s celebrate! Faux metal technique, shaker card

Hi!

Today’s card is dedicated to my parents, my husband and my baby girl. My parents and my husband and I share the same anniversary day, and it is also the day that our baby Roxanne turned 9 month old! A perfect day to celebrate and enjoy a very nice dinner at a restaurant 😉

I wanted to create a faux-metal effect for my shaker star. In order to do this, I first die-cut my star silhouette by putting the two star dies nested and ran it through my big shot. I did exactly the same with a piece of foam sheet to make the shaker part. It adheres nicely to the rest, a very convenient way to create non usual shapes of shaker cards. I then die-cut the acetate from the biggest star die.

The faux-metal effect is done by stamping the shape with Versamark and then cover it with silver embossing powder, and heat-setting it. You may do it several times until you’re happy with the brightness and the polished look of the star. Once you have adhered the star on the acetate and then on the foam shape, your shaker star is ready. Just fill it with what you want – here I punched little stars on silver glitter paper, red hearts and clear sequins for fun.

The background is a mix of  heat-embossed stars (I pressed the Versamark ink on a stencil, then applied Holographic clear embossing powder) and stamped hearts and stars.

I tried to show the effect of the holographic clear embossing powder, in real life it’s very nice but, as often with glitter it’s difficult to take a good picture.

On your wedding day…

Hello!

This is a card that was really simple to make, and I was very happy with it, though I couldn’t decide where to put the sentiment. I usually put a greeting on the front of all my cards, and for this one it just didn’t feel right to hide any part of this stunning embossing design. So I let it as it is… and put my greeting inside the card.
