Baker's Box Thinlits Die - Video

I will be away on vacation the next few days, but still wanted to post to my blog.  So instead of a project I thought I would share another video.  Today's video highlights the Baker's Box Thinlits.  This thinlit makes boxes that measure 4 1/8" x 2 1/8" x 2 5/8".  They are the perfect size for your favorite small treat and can be decorated to fit the occasion.

To order your Baker's Box Thinlits you can go here to my Online Store.  I hope you enjoy the video, and you can also see the finished box below - plain and decorated.

Birthday Blossoms


 
Stamp a few flowers right onto your layer, stamp a few more onto Whisper White Card Stock and cut them out with the coordinating Pansy Punch and you have a nice birthday card to send.
 
My card base is Wisteria Wonder and I layered it with a piece of Whisper White and stamped my small flowers in Wisteria Wonder, and the for the larger flowers I also used Crushed Curry, and Melon Mambo Ink.  To dress up the center of the flowers I filled them with some Dazzling Details, which you can see much better in person.  I placed some of these flowers on using Dimensionals. 
 
It is nice when you have stamp sets and coordinating products such as punches or Framelits.  While you are looking through your catalog you can always see what products coordinate with your stamps.  Look right under the Item# and if any of the stamps in the set have a coordinating product it will be listed for you.

Christmas in July


The ladies who come to my monthly classes like to get an early start on their Christmas cards so I start preparing a few each month starting in July.  Here is one of the samples I prepared.
 
In the picture below you can really see the shine and sparkle. 
 

 
To get my shimmery card, I first stamped my images and then covered the whole layer with Versa Mark Ink.  I then sprinkled Iridescent Ice over that and set it with my Heat Tool.  This is a really easy technique and really adds some sparkle to your card.

    Heartfelt Sympathy



    The Heartfelt Sympathy Stamp Set has some really nice sentiments for your sympathy cards.  I find that sometimes it is hard to find the right words to say during those times and the stamped word can sometimes be just as appropriate as the written one.

    My card base is Very Vanilla Card Stock that I layered with a small piece of Timeless Elegance Designer Series Paper.  I also tied a piece of Basic Black 3/8" Stitched Satin Ribbon around the layer and stamped my sentiment using Memento Black Ink.  To the upper right hand corner I stamped a small flower using Smoky Slate Ink to frame the card.

    Farmer's Market Designer Series Paper


     
    When the paper is so pretty I don't like to cover it up a lot, so I just added some coordinating ribbon and my sentiment that was layered onto two Lots of Labels Framelits. 
     
     I also added a layer of Sahara Sand Card Stock between my card base and designer paper, and for extra embellishment added some Candy Dots.  This pretty paper would go really nice with the Market Fresh Stamp Set, or as you can see is pretty on its own.
