You are so turtle-y loved!

Whilst I love teeny tiny small project, I do love it when I can create a large project – something that requires multiple pieces of card and can fit plenty in it. As you can see from the picture, that’s certainly what today’s project is – it barely fit in my photobooth! But I felt I had to create a large box as I wanted to show off the FREE hostess reward paper Pattern Party.

Pattern Party is gorgeous paper and whilst it is a reward choice, it is a large pack with 48 double sided sheets. One side is colourful, a mix of patterns and colours which are bright and cheerful. The other side is monochrome – black and white – and allows you to work with it in whatever way you please. I chose to blend some of mine with ink that co-ordinates with the cardstock.

You’ve seen me use this stamp set already and before I made the box I knew I wanted to feature these cute little turtles on it. I hadn’t used Evening Evergreen much, so chose to make that the feature of my first box (the second in the video uses Soft Succulent) and to say I wasn’t overly keen on the colour when it was first announced, I have loved using it – the matching ribbon by the way is so easy to work with, makes the most gorgeous bows!

…and these little guys, well it goes without saying that they’re just the cutest. Bit of a note here – the punch only cuts out the larger turtle. To make the smaller ones, I stamped the images and then fussy cut around them – totally worth it!

Succulent Contours

From the new 2021-2023 Incolors, I think Soft Succulent is my favourite. I’m not normally a green fan, but there’s something about the muted green shade that I simply cannot stop using. When the demonstrator pre-order opened up, the first things to go in my basket were the new incolor ink pads, card stock, ribbon and the Colors & Contours stamp set.

I teamed Soft Succulent up with another green shade from the new Incolors, Evening Evergreen, acting as an accent colour for the stamped layer and sentiment. I know you don’t get many green flowers, but I wanted to keep my card to just the two colours (and white).

In the stamp set, you do get both the outline stamps and the inner shading – but I chose to colour mine in using Stampin’ Blends. Keeping it quite simple so that the main card base would be the focal point using some tone on tone stamping. I think it has come together pretty well.

What is your favourite colour from the New 2021-2023 set?

I hope you’ve enjoyed todays project.
