Well Suited Hooray

Coming up in the new Jan to June Mini Catalogue, there is a suite that is completely male orientated and I can’t get enough of it! I’m absolutely rubbish at making cards for men no matter what the occasion is. So for those of you who like me, you’re in for a great surprise when the catalogue goes live on 5th January.

The suite contains stamps, dies, paper and twine and is perfectly co-ordinated in the usual Stampin’ Up! style. Perfect for any crafter as it means you spend less time finding the ‘right’ shade of any colour.

This tapered top box is made using Night of Navy, but in my Youtube tutorial I have switched things up and used Basic Black – which turned how far better than I ever expected. By doing different colour combos on camera, I’ve learnt to just go with it and has really surprised myself.

The box is decorated with paper from the suite, but with a sentiment from a new stamp set called ‘You are Amazing’ which features in the Mini Catalogue. It fits perfectly into the Stitched Square I chose and sit’s nicely centred on the front. A touch of ribbon and the project looks gorgeous and ready to gift.

Which colour / pattern do you prefer?

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
