Pass the parcel...

Do you like the suspense of opening a parcel? I do 😊 well with this trip you get the suspense multiplied by 3! Lol
These nesting cube boxes are inspired by ones I've seen on the internet but sadly I can't find the link to the original that inspired me.😕 so a big thank you to the lovely person who shared their talent.
My boxes range in size from 4" cube to a 2"cube. The outside are made from pattern paper and each box has a card stock liner to give the box strength.

Split right open...

What does every new home owner need ??? A glass of something to celebrate the surviving the move!!😉
So today's inspiration is a box that holds a small bottle of wine or maybe fizz  to celebrate with 😊
I used the tutorial by the ever so talented Crafty JOJO  the link to the tutorial is here

All boxed up.....

Well it's been a while since our last post but there is a good reason...Gill has moved house!! And as we all know it's a crazy crazy time!!Lol
So this week's inspiration is all boxes celebrate Gill still being surrounded hee hee hee 😉
Today's box is a very simple  box with a wrap round cover so it looks a little like a book . The closure is on the belt and is a small magnet.

Blue blue christmas.. .

Today's card is made using glossy paper again but this time I used not only reinkers dropped onto the set cardstock but also droplets of wink of Stella. I do so wish I could take better photos especially for this card because in real life it shimmer and sparkles beautifully!
We'll thats it for this week I do hope you have a lovely weekend and will join us next week for more inspiration 😊
Have fun

Time to.....

Today's sample is made with Gill in mind.
 Gill is moving house on Monday and as everyone who has ever done such a thing will know it's one of the most stressful times in our lives so as the card says Gill...Just breathe!!!
The background of the card was created using glossy cardstock , reinker and clear embossing resist technique.
Firstly I used the embossing buddy to ensure the card was grease free then clear embossed the leaves. Then I spritzed the card lightly with weather and dropped reinker directly on top.You have to work fairly fast on this one to avoid to much mess ...or not if you're me 😉 now spritz again to allow the ink to flow the embossed areas will remain white and the images will emerge. Allow to dry thoroughly.

Masking - Day 5

 Today I've gone festive!
Cary and I held our Christmas all day classes over the last 2 weekends so I thought 
I should get started.

I used the Christmas Sweaters stamp set for this fun card.
6 Different jumpers all stamped several times over the Whisper White mat/

I coloured some of them in using ink from the ink pad and a water brush.

I added a piece of the Silver Tinsel Trim and a Rhinestone on one of the jumpers.

You can see the post it cut outs that I used and how they were placed over the stamped image.
The Whisper White mat was mounted onto Real Red cardstock using then stuck onto the card
base using Dimensionals.

The message inside was from  Snowflake Sentiments stamp set which we used for our all day 
Christmas classes.
