Alternate Artistry Domed Box

OK, so I’m a little bit addicted to making these domed boxes. So much so, I’m here with a different version today. Following on from my TFI Friday Live Crafting last week, where I made one of these boxes with a single piece of Designer Series Paper (DSP), I’m back with a cardstock and DSP version.

This time I reached for the bright colours of the Artistry Blooms paper pack. My sample focused on Magenta Madness, whilst my video showcases Bumblebee – both colours from the 2020-2022 collection.

They’re a good size for treats, sweets, jewellery, wax melts, bath bombs, candles… the list is endless. BUT a tip – put the heavier goodies in the cardstock version so you benefit from the stronger base.

I absolutely love the ombre side of the papers included in the Artistry Blooms pack, and they have been used many times as they’re gorgeous. The picture above should show you just how gorgeous they are.

I finished off the box with co-ordinating ribbon and felt they didn’t need any decoration. I’ll keep this ready to use and decorate when I know the occasion they’re to be used for.

Which colour do you prefer?

Best Wishes,
Suzanne

Happy Piggin’ Birthday!

Aww, how cute is this little guy? And that hat is just adorable! The inspiration for this little guy came from my daughter who is a huge fan of pigs. As soon as she spotted this bundle in the catalogue, she begged me to order it. With the numerous combinations you can stamp and die cut with the bundle, I just couldn’t say no.

The number of animals / combinations you can make with the bundle are amazing, so many different animals to create, which we loved trying to work out when we first got the set. I’ve been stuck in a Halloween / Christmas phase lately so tried to make this card for a different occasion – this one being for a birthday. The balloons, present and flower all come in the same set so it’s great to set the theme of the card as well as create lots of different animals.

My daughter went for Magenta Madness and Highland Heather as part of her card, which I think looks great together! What do you think?

What colours would you put together and with which animal?

Best Wishes,
Suzanne

Halloween Bright

Yes, this paper is making an appearance on my blog again. I just cannot stop using it and find myself reaching for it more than any other Designer Series Paper (DSP). Whilst on this occasion, I was thinking of Halloween – I didn’t want to go full Halloween and wanted to introduce a colour not often linked to the occasion. So I reached for another fave of mine, Magenta Madness. I’ve already had to top up my Magenta Madness cardstock as I’ve used it that much!

This little pouch was made with trick or treating in mind, we get quite a few visitors each year and always give our little treats or gifts to the children who knock on our door. However, this year we may have to adapt our gifts to suit the restrictions that Covid-19 has brought about – this is where I have introduced the pouch. It is a good size for a pack of small sweeties or a fun size chocolate bar to fit in, but means you can pass them out without others touching them.

I decorated mine with matching Magenta Madness ribbon and a sentiment from the Banner Year stamp set. The sentiment is such a perfect fit for the pouch and looks pretty finished with the Iridescent Pearls.

Do you do anything for Halloween at all? Or is it perhaps an occasion not celebrated by yourselves?

Best Wishes,
Suzanne
