Boxed Sets

We had a good time at the Stamp-a-Stack workshop this morning! We made two boxes with four cards in each. You've seen some of this before, but not all pulled together. Be sure and read on, as I have a treat stuck in the middle of this post!! Here's what we made:

Let me start by saying that the tab on this box is Certainly Celery, but I couldn't get it to look that way in the photo. This box uses a small velcro circle as a closure as you can see below:

You've seen these cards on my blog before, but here they are again:

The backgrounds are wheeled with the Jumbo Petal wheel and Whisper White craft ink. The other colors are Certainly Celery, Almost Amethyst, Ruby Red, and Marigold Morning - which is retired, so we used Apricot Appeal in the class. The animals come from the "Wild About You" stamp set, and the sentiments on the tabs came from the retired All Year Cheer I and II sets (I made these cards long ago).

Now for the other project. You've seen this box too...

...but I have a treat for you! You can now see my tutorial and make one of your own!

Here are the cards we made to go inside:

I kept them fairly simple, as we ran short on time the way it was. The nice thing about these cards (and the box) is that they are completely stamped using VersaMark ink! The only other ink we used was some Close to Cocoa to sponge on the edges for an aged look. The swirl and emblem are from the Baroque Motifs set, and the sentiments are from the Hugs & Wishes and Holidays & Wishes stamp sets. The cards have an antique brad on the emblem, but the box uses one of the new Fire Rhinestones.

My next Stamp-a-Stack workshop is on August 14th. Reserve your seat now as I'll be pulling out some exciting things from the NEW catalog! I can't wait to show you!
