Hello and a very warm welcome to the August Stampin’ Up! Artisan Design Team blog hop! this month we are sharing ideas and inspiration with you using the fabulous Shimmer Detailed Laser-Cut Speciality Paper
This laser paper is just totally gorgeous!!! I have used the Sponge Dauber to colour the shimmer paper using a mix of Granny Apple Green and some touches of Shaded Spruce. I have used the full sheet of flowers and leaves for both the box lid and tags. The individual sections on the cards are from the chopped up sections from the other design.
The flowers were all from the Beautiful Friendship Stamp Set (One of my top picks from the Annual Catalogue) All the flowers have been stamped out in Melon Mambo, Mango Melody and the leaves have been stamped in Granny Apple Green. I really wanted to create lots of texture, so I have fussy cut out and layered up the leaves and flowers, however this stamp set looks equally beautiful with just the one layer & works really well for some very quick makes!
The box measurements are as follows:
Lid = 9″ x 9 3/4″ This had been scored in at 15/16″ on all 4 sides
Melon Mambo Compartment = 8″ x 10″ This has been scored in at 1 1/2″ on all 4 sides. Granny Apple Green Compartment = 5 1/2″ x 10″ This has been scored in at 1 1/2″ on all 4 sides. these tow compartments have been made separately and then adhered together with double sided tape.
This ‘Just for you’ sentiment is from the Rare Blessings stamp set – I just love this font!
