Polka Dot Pillow Box

I’ve had the Kraft Pillow Boxes in my new goodies basket for ages and with the new catalogue approaching I thought it was time I did something with them. Going with the dots printed on them I decided to embrace the polka dots and work with similar products.

I knew I also wanted to use the wooden button elements out of the Sale-A-Bration catalogue as these will be gone next week. Looking for a dotty type paper I chose the Soft Soft Seafoam and Night of Navy pattern out of the Tranquil Textures DSP. This also worked well as meant I could colur my butterfly with the matching Stampin’ Blends.

The Night of Navy layer measures 17.5cm x 8cm, scored at 8cm and 16cm enabling you to fold around the box and secure it closed with the additional little flap, for this I used Tear ‘n’ Tape. The DSP layer measures 17.cm x 7cm and was again scored at 8cm and 16cm.

To create the ruffle at the edge I used the Whisper white Polka DotTulle Ribbon folded onto a strip of Tear ‘n’ Tape. To continue with the dotty theme I added a sentiment from Climbing Roses stamped on the dot edged fram from the Rose Trellis.

To finish the box off I added the wooden butterfly which had been coloured with Stampin’ Blends. To give the Seafoam layer more definition I coloured it also with wink of Stella to give some sparkle. The butterfly was adhered with quite a few mini glue dots as I wanted to use a dry adhesive.

I love how this turned out and think it would make a lovely table favour for any special occasion or just filled with treats to give to that special someone.

All Adorned Card

Today I’m sharing with you a quick card I made with the free Sale-A-Bration stamp set All Adorned. I love the simplicity of this stamp set, its perfect to work with when you just want to stamp and make pretty patterns, if like me you need this one in your collection then place a £45.00 order before the end of the month and its yours for free.

I picked a colour scheme of Soft Seafoam and Merry Merlot to work with today as these are my favourite colours from this catalogue’s colour refresh and I love how good they look together, this is the perfect combination for a male or female card and its one all definitely be using again soon.

All Adorned Card - Flat

I stamped the Soft Seafoam images first randomly all over my cardstock and then overstamped with the smaller medallion type stamp. These two stamps match up perfectly to create a lovely two-toned pattern. Simply line up the four outer dots on the smaller stamp with the circles on the larger stamp and hey presto, gorgeous background.

To help my sentiment stand out I used the Everyday Label punch and the starburst punch to create a couple of layers.

Hope you’ve enjoyed today’s quick and simple project.
