Box in a Bag

I made this box in a bag a while ago. Last Christmas I made up a huge heap and filled them with chocolates!
This box in a bag uses the Sweet Stems stamp set and the Tea Party DSP. I used five punches: scallop circle, 1 3/8 circle, scallop edge, round tag and the horizontal slot.
I used the Certainly Celery wide grosgrain ribbon to tie it together up the top.

Sense of Time

The Sense of Time stamp set is a great set to bring out all those masculine colours. It is new out of the Spring mini.
This is a very simple card done with Always Artichoke, Kraft and Natural Ivory. I did masking in the inside. The ink is Chocolate Chip.

More Great Friend

I am just loving the Great Friend stamp set from the new spring mini! I have made so many gorgeous things with it.

This first card was so easy to make! The colours are Orchard Opulence and Certainly Celery. I did some ripping at the top of the Certainly Celery. I added some white grosgrain ribbon and tied a piece of Certainly Celery grosgrain ribbon on the top.

I got the second card idea off dawns stamping thoughts, which is such a great blog. It uses a piece of acetate on the front to make the card so unique and special. I changed the card a bit, but the concept is the same. Stampin' Up! does not sell acetate here, but it does in America so I am hoping it will come to NZ soon! I am using the Great Friend stamp set as well as the Oval All stamp set and the Scallop Oval punch which coordinate with each other. The DSP is the new Walk in the Park out of the spring mini.
