handbag box

I'm having fun making boxes at the moment. This one is in the shape of a handbag and has a bead handle. Not quite sure what to put on the front flap but the image is a Clare Curd stamp from Papermania coloured with copics, rv 10 & 21, c1, c3, c5, y21 ivory and vanilla promarkers.
Peel off border and a punchie flower with sprays cut from a Leone Em punch.
Very quick and easy to make with Scal doing all the donkey work.

Very quick and easy box this time. I used psp to draw the box lid & base, cut with scal. Acetate inner, just stuck to the base with some strong ds tape.
Stampin Up Bloomin Beauty stamp, on bockingford paper. F&C watercolour pencils, dark chrome yellow, light cadmium orange, cadmium orange and light cadmium red, leaf green and juniper green. Stuck to the acetate with clear gloss. Ribbons wound around the lid and base to give a bit of strength as well as look pretty.
This could easily be made with border punches instead of scal providing you make the lids at exactly the right size for the punch.

Gingham paper

Feel free to save and use however you want.

Inspired by stamping up

I went to a SU party and was rather taken with some diecut aperature cards but they're a lot smaller than I normally use so I came home and designed this.

It's made from several layers, the top cream is a 5" panel with the outer petals cut away leaving a central area. To this I added a smaller flower on top and larger underneath. I then used deep foam pads to mount it over some more of the cream pearl stamped with a flourish stamp from Craftwork Cards & brown stazon. These were then matted & layered on the same brown pearl card and some gold mirri.

Simple peel off border and greeting and a central flower gem that I bought in a haberdashery shop.
