Happy Wednesday and Happy Summer!
I’m happy the calendar now says its summer because living in Florida it kinda feels like summer arrived a few months ago already.
Before I get into my birthday card and gift box idea I need to share with you that Tomorrow Only June 24th Stampin’ Up! has FREE Shipping on all orders over $50 for products before shipping and tax would be calculated.
OK, so now that you know about tomorrows free shipping, Today I want to share with you a birthday card and gift box that I created using the Pansy Patch stamp set with coordinating dies and Designer Series Paper.
Stampin’ Up! has this awesome Pansy Patch stamp set with coordinating dies and designers series paper. You can purchase these products separately or the entire suite called Pansy Petals.
The box is a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box that I decorated using everything in the Pansy Petals suite along with Pacific Coast, Fresh Freesia and Basic White cardstock.
There are so many different ways to use this set. You can stamp each image with any color from our classic Stampin’ Ink Pad (since flowers come in all colors) then using the die just cut one image or in this card example I used the dies and cut each piece out in basic white cardstock then sponged the colors for a shaded look. I also used this same technique in a post last month called Pansy Patch Garden.
I love using the new Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine, it doesn’t take up a lot of room on your work area which makes it so easy to make these cute pansy flowers.
I will also be showing you examples of just stamping with this wonderful stamp set in my next post.
Until next time my friends,
Enjoy the SUnshine!
