Having fun at Make It

Or at least I assume I will be. This has been written a few days in advance but hopefully tomorrow's will have some photos etc from the show.

This was another project I made for the show using another of the Sale-a-Bration sets - Elementary Elegance. This time I opted to make a Pizza Box card holder - this one is in Island Indigo.

The colour theme came from one of the cards and I have to admit that the particular card was CASED from Bekka Prideaux



Once I had made the box, I decorated it with some of the paper from the Everyday Enchantment pack from Sale-a-Bration. On top of this is a piece of Whisper White card stock that was stamped using the lovely frame from the Elementary Elegance stamp set and the centre piece is a piece of Pool Party card stock that I stamped with the greeting and then punched out using the Curly Label punch which fits the centre so perfectly. I just love how the Stampin' Up! products co-ordinate together. The box was finished off with a piece of Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon.


These are the four small square (3.75" x 3.75") cards that are inside the box.
This is the card which was CASED from Bekka although I did use a different greeting!
The base card is Island Indigo on top of which was glued a slightly smaller piece of Pool Party DSP. I stamped the greeting onto this DSP (apologies as it is not quite straight).  The top layer is a piece of Whisper White card stock that is stamped in Island Indigo with the centre then punched out using the Curly Label punch. You cannot tell from this photo too well, but the edges of the card stock were sponged using a sponge dauber before using Stampin' Dimensionals to pop it over the DSP so that the message shows through the centre of the hole.


This second card was made from a piece of Pool Party card stock with a smaller piece of Island Indigo glued on top. On top of this is a piece of Whisper White card stock that had been stamped with both the buttefly and bird stamps from the set and then run through my Big Shot using the Perfect Polka Dot embossing folder.

The centre frame was stamped in Island Indigo onto a piece of Whisper White before being matted onto a piece of Pool Party DSP.  I then punched out the centre using the Curly Label punch (so through both layers). This was then attached to the centre of the polka dot embossed whisper white using Stampin' Dimensionals. 

To finish off the card I added three small butterflies that I had made using the Beautiful Wings embosslit with a Basic Rhinestone on each of them.


This third card has a Pool Party base with a piece of Island Indigo stuck to it. I punched out some of the Everyday Enchantment paper using the Curly Label punch, this particular pattern really lends itself to be punched out with this particular punch. The message in the centre is stamped onto a piece of Pool Party card stock and punched out using the same label before adding it to the centre of the card with some Stampin' Dimensionals.


Last but not least is this fourth card which has been made out of Island Indigo card stock. I ran a smaller piece of Pool Party card stock through my Big Shot using the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder.  The centre has another piece of Island Indigo onto which has been glued the sentiment. The centre Pool Party stamp if in fact the centre part of the frame stamp from the Elementary Elegance set. This centre pops out and can be used as a seperate background stamp, which I then punched out of the Whisper White card using the Curly Label punch.

I hope you have enjoyed my brief (but descriptive) show of what's on the Stampin' Up! stand I hope to be back soon with photos of the show.
