Botanical Builder Gift Set for GDP033

posted in: 3D Projects, Birthday, Boxes, Cards | 10

I love making boxes, and when it’s an unusual one and comes with a matching card, even better!  I took up the challenge for this week’s Global Design Challenge.  I really like colour challenges and this one is lovely because it has some of my favourite colours!  Click on the image below to see what the design team has come up with and all the inspirational projects that have been entered.

GDP033

My inspiration for this box comes from Jessica Winter’s Diamond Box.  Jessica is an Artisan design team member.  To see her post, click on the image below.

I’ve adapted Jessica’s design to make a tall box, and I’ve included a co-ordinating card to go with it.


Botanical Builder Gift Set-1

I used the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies, and really went to town!  It is a bit OTT but I was having so much fun!  What do you think?


Botanical Builder Gift Set-2

I decorated the lid as well as all around the box.  The sentiment is from the Honeycomb Hello Stamp Set and the tag from Tags & Labels Framelits is threaded with Whisper White Baker’s Twine.


Botanical Builder Gift Set-3

For the card I used the sentiment from the Birthday Blooms Stamp Set.  Both sentiments were white heat embossed.


Botanical Builder Gift Set-4

I love the unusual look of the box and how, even though this it’s tall (a whopping 18 cm), it still sits flat and is very stable.  You could fit lots in it too!

Striped Hello for GDP020

Inspiration

I have a super fun striped hello card for you today.  Inspiration comes from the Global Design Project Case the Designer Challenge and this week we are casing Connie Collins!  I loved Connie’s bold black stripes and decided to include that element in my card.  I also took inspiration from Danielle Flanders who made a card back in September using the split sentiment technique I’ve used here.  Here’s  Connie’s card:

GDP020And here’s my card:

Striped Hello

2016 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration Brochure

It uses the Hello Stamp Set from the Sale-a-Bration Brochure, only available until February 15th.  The flowers were cut from Tangelo Twist and Melon Mambo cardstock using the Blooming’ Heart Thinlits Dies, and for the little leaves I used one of the dies from the Botanical Builder Framelits Dies and cut three from Wild Wasabi.  Some Rhinestone Basic Jewels and the new two-tone Basic Black/Melon Mambo Baker’s Twine finishes it off.

Striped Hello

The sentiment was created by stamping in Versamark ink on Basic Black cardstock then embossing in white before cutting sections out of the Basic Black cardstock.  The sentiment was stamped again in Basic Black Archival ink on a piece of Whisper White cardstock.

Of course I had to decorate the inside:

Striped Hello

The flowers come from the Botanical Blooms Stamp Set.  I just adore all these new products in the 2016 Occasions Catalogue and Sale-a-Bration Brochure, don’t you?  I can’t wait to share some more projects with you, so stay tuned!

I hope you’ve enjoyed sharing my card today.  I love to read your comments, so if you have the time, let me know what you think.
