Derwent Pencil Box

Hello everyone, hope you are having a good weekend! Thank you to everyone who joined me on my Facebook Live yesterday, where we made a birthday box for a set of Derwent Pencils. This gorgeous box fits a tin of 6 Derwent pencils, a lovely gift for any occasion.

This project heavily features the Playing with Patterns suite using the Designer Series Paper, a ribbon from the combo pack & the Resin Dots. I kept the box simple, letting the decoration speak for itself. The paper pattern I chose allowed me to use one of five colours, so I went with Coastal Cabana.

The ‘Happy Birthday’ sentiment from the Many Mates stamp set fits nicely into the 2″ circle, leaving room for some embellishments and a pretty to finish off the decoration. My daughter was very pleased with the end product, gifting the box to one of her friends.

What do you think?

Best Wishes,

Happy Hump Day to you all! I hope you are all keeping safe and well? Today, I wanted to showcase some dies recently introduced in the Annual Catalogue. I love basic shapes – squares, circles, rectangles – and we have a lot of these available as dies with stitched effect too. However, we didn’t have any triangles until now..

At first I wasn’t too sure how I was going to use them, but I knew I wanted them to be purple and not used around a sentiment. In the end, I kept playing with their positioning and this is what I came up with. I love the differing shades of purple and how they work with one another – another reason to use Stampin’ Up! colours.

I then finished the card off with the ‘Lovely You’ stamp set and kept the card neutral from any event, with a touch of Crumb Cake ink to highlight the floral stamp used. I hope you like this as much as I do?!

Best Wishes,
