Hey there stampin' friends! Welcome to the OSAT November Blog Hop Winter Festival!!! I missed last months hop and I was so sad. I thought I had an event that week and I was preparing for it and even got to the place to set up for the weekend and discovered it was the following weekend. That tells you a little about my crazy. Only a little though. LOL! So I left it all packed in my van for a week and was over prepared for that vendor event. LOL! Anyway I'm glad to be back hopping this moth.
I knew I wanted to use some of my new stuff I haven't had time to play with. It was all waiting for me. I decided I wanted to use the Perfectly Plaid suite for my projects. I just absolutely love the DSP in that suite so that is where I started. I'll start with my 3D project first because that's where I started in my creating. I opened those beautiful Gold Mini Pizza Boxes and that is where the creativity began.I made a belly band to go around the box and embossed it with the new 3D Winter Knit embossing folder. I then punched a couple trees from the Wrapped in Plaid DSP with the Pine Tree Punch. Did you know you get 10% off when you purchase a bundle like the Perfectly Plaid Bundle? I then stamped the middle tree with Shaded Spruce ink and punched out. Popped that tree up with Mini Dimensionals and added some Gold Metallic Pearls. I wanted to put a star on the top and I hadn't ordered the copper star embellishments so I used a retired star embellishment and colored it with the Cherry Cobbler Dark Blend. Usually I wouldn't use something retired, but you do have the option of getting the stars in copper and you can color them. I used the words from the Well Said stamp set. While not really a Christmas sentiment, it would work great for giving your "always" a gift.
I used the same items on my card except this time I didn't use the punch and I added some of the new Snow Accents Puff Paint, some of the Shaded Spruce/Gold 3/8" Stripped Ribbon and the Gold Foil paper. I also stamped the words in Versamark ink and embossed in Gold Embossing powder.
Have you tired the Snowfall Accents Puff Paint? It's really cool. A bit of a learning curve because it's a little thinner that some we carried years ago, but it puffs up great and gives your projects that bit of WOW dimension!
Wouldn't this be a great gift and card combo? I think jewelry would fit great into it. I love Origami Owl jewelry and I think their Pearl Bolo bracelet would look perfect in this box. Hint, hint to my hubby if he happens to read this post. LOL!
