Crafty Cupcakes Design Team August 2017 Week 1

Jillian Selwood, Purple Jelly Designs, Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator

I am delighted to have been invited to take part in the Crafty Cupcakes Design Team for the month of August along with Emma Hudson of Little Crafty Me, you can visit Emma's blog here. We have been given the Colourful Seasons Stamp Set to work with. It also comes with the Seasonal Layers Thinlits Dies and you can save 10% if you buy the bundle. 

For week one I have made a 3D project using the beautiful Window Box Thinlet Dies. I fell in love with this box immediately I saw it last year at OnStage.

I made the box using Powder Pink cardstock and distressed the edges with Blushing Bride ink. I then stamped three different flowers in Blushing Bride ink on Powder Pink cardstock before die cutting. I also die cut the branches out of Soft Suede cardstock. I cut a smaller hexagon for the top which I stamped with the sentiment 'Life is a beautiful thing'.

I decided to adhere the branch directly onto the box sides but adhered the flowers and top with Stampin' Dimensions to give some height. I finished off with medium pearls in the centre of the die cut flowers and large pearls on the top and a generous brush with my Wink of Stella pen on all the flowers.

I'm really pleased with how it's turned out and I think it would make a perfect Wedding favour box filled with chocolates. I hope you like it too.

Don't forget to hop over to see Emma's beautiful creation here.

Thank you for stopping by this week and reading my blog, I do hope you’ve enjoyed it. Until next week.
