Passionettes - Spring Mini - Blog Hop

Welcome to the Passionettes - Spring Mini - Blog Hop!

There are 9 of the Passionettes Team posting new projects on their blogs today, all highlighting new products coming soon with Stampin' Up's fabulous new Spring Mini Catalogue. The Spring Mini starts from January 4th and will run through 'til the end of April.

I decided to use the new Blossom Party Originals Die for my projects. This die will be exclusive to Stampin' Up! It contains a mixture of different types of flowers - the perfect size for all manner of cards, scrapbook pages and 3D projects. The blossoms are also perfect for stacking on top of each other - making for lots of different possible variations in flowers :o)


All supplies Stampin'Up! unless otherwise stated

The colour combination used for all these projects is:

Real Red, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla.



INK: Crumb Cake, Real Red, Whisper White Craft

STAMPS: Everything Eleanor, Clearly For You

TOOLS: Big Shot, Blossom Party Die, Mini Milk Carton Die, 3/4" Circle Punch, Sponge Dauber, Crop-a-Dile

ACCESSORIES: 1/8" Very Vanilla and Real Red Taffeta Ribbon, Crystal Effects

DIRECTIONS:
The base of the octagon box is created using the Mini Milk Carton die. I cut two, trimmed off the top and joined them together. I made the lid by hand, making it slightly bigger than the Milk Carton base.

All the flower layers have been sponged on the edges using a sponge dauber and Crumb Cake ink.

The buttons are created using circles of cardstock. I stamped the top layer using the small background stamp from Clearly For You stamp set using White Craft ink. The holes were punched out using the Crop-a-Dile. I then covered the top with Crystal Effects and when dry, threaded the Vanilla taffeta ribbon through and tied into a knot.


The above card was created as a match for the box. The only difference is that in addition, I have used the Tiny Tags and Pennant Parade stamp sets for the little sentiment tags. These were punched out using the Jewellery Tag punch.


Another quick and easy card to make using the Blossom Party die for the flowers - different ones this time. The sentiment is from the Curly Cute stamp set.


Finally, a couple of Thank You cards. Each has a different flower as the focal point - created using the Blossom Party die. The sentiment is again from the Curly Cute stamp set.

The previous step in this Blog Hop was the wonderfully talented Gen.

The next stop on this little Hop is the fabulous Val.
