Envelope Punch Board Card

Isn't this a pretty card?
I just love the Eastern Elegance DSP, it looks so rich.....decadent almost. To show off this gorgeous DSP I decided to make a card using the Envelope Punch Board. I seem to grab tools that will do more than just one job, and have we got it with the Envelope Punch Board! It not only as its name suggests makes envelopes in all shapes and sizes, to fit your creations but it also will make boxes, greeting cards, gift card holders and so much more. It even has its own bone scorer AND corner punch as well. No wonder I reach for it all the time!
This card was made so it opens at the flap which is tucked under the Curly Label punched piece of Silver Glimmer Paper. I stamped out a butterfly from the Papillion Pot Pouri Set and attaced that to the top of the glimmer paper and added a couple of Basic Rhinestones to the back of the butterfly. I also punched out a small butterfly and a larger one using the Elegant Butterfly Punch. I ran a piece of Pool Party Ribbon across the front of the card just to add a bit more colour. The inside I stamped the word Celebrate from the Outlined Expressions Stamp set in Summer Star Fruit. Such a simple card but with so much class.  If you would like the instructions, I have placed a simple Tutorial on my blog. Till next time, happy Stampin'

6 x 6" One Sheet Wonder set of cards and gift box

Hi there Stampers! Yes I know its been a long time between posts. Family illness put a whole lot of things on the back burner until the end of last month. a I havent been idle all the time, although all of December and most of January most of my time was spent at a hospital but now hopefully we are again on the upward scale and back to whatever normal is. The project I am showing here, was initially scheduled for December, but held it last month finally and is for a One Sheet Wonder using just a 6 x 6" piece of DSP. The cutting of the DSP is not my template, and I found it on Pinterest . There are lots to be found and this one come from Verves Stamps and what a wonderful way to use up some of those smaller squares of DSP!
 Firstly, we made the box to hold the cards and the envelopes in, and for the box we used the Envelope Punch Board, I love that tool makes it so very easy to whip up a box or indeed any size envelope you might need! The flap at the back was kept in place by punching out a Modern Label Punch and securing it on either side with a mini silver brad. The cards them selves were so easy and quick to do, and the ladies were amazed at how lovely they were, and all by using small pieces of DSP. We used Perfect Polka Dots and also the Modern Mosaic Embossing Folders, to add a bit of interest. We used The Reason to Smile Clear Stamp Set for all the flowers. I was so happy to be able to get back into sharing what I love and also to show my lovely ladies how to make this delightful set.
 I will hopefully pop in and out more regularly now and show you what I have been doing in my 'spare' time. If you would like the instructions on how to make this beautiful box and the cards, just send me an email and I will email the instructions  to you.
Thank you for taking the time to read my post and I look  forward to posting more regularly from now. Till next time, happy Stampin'
