Modern Medley DSP

Card Box

A few weeks back I entered a challenge at Scrapping4fun and my entry was selected as a Featured Creation which meant I was asked to be a Guest Designer for an upcoming challenge.

Well that challenge is today and the theme is ‘Black & White’.

I decided to make a card box using a tutorial from Jenny Moors.

I’ve used the lovely Modern Medley paper from Stampin’ Up! to decorate my card box. The word ‘Cards’ I cut out on my Silhouette Cameo and the flowers are from the Petite Petal stamp set by Stampin’ Up!. A Vintage brad and some pearls finish off the outside of my box.

The inside of the box has compartments. The back area is for standard size card and the front has 2 sections for gift cards.

I’ll be making up some coordinating cards to complete and use as a gift.

Now it’s time to pop on over to Scrapping4fun and check out what the DT have created to inspire you this week then get creating and enter this weeks challenge.

Tea for Two

It’s time for a new challenge over at ABC Challenges and this time our challenge is ….

Z if for Zebra.

What we want to see for this one is Black & White and/or Stripes.

We have 2 sponsors for this challenge, Bugaboo Stamps and Lili of the Valley, both with some great prizes up for grabs.

Now to be eligible to win a prize or Top 5 pick you need to get creating, upload your entry and make sure to follow our challenge rules.

Now onto my creation for this challenge.

I decided to go the ‘Black & White’ theme and created a 3 item set using the gorgeous Modern Medley DSP from Stampin’ Up!

I purchased a Silhouette Cameo back in August and although it’s had plenty of use it hasn’t been much for me.

Earlier this week I purchased the lovely Tea for You and Me file from svgcuts and knew I had to use it straight away for my Z is for Zebra DT creations.

I love how this turned out.

Here’s another shot of the Teapot, Tea Cup, Saucer & Spoon.

And here’s more photos of the card.

I’ve stamped the gorgeous Little Girls – Tea Time image from Lili of the Valley onto Cryogen White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I’ve then coloured in Monochromatic Tones of Warm Greys.

Colours used are: W9, W7, W5, W3, W1, W00

Here’s a close up of the Little Girls.


And another…


And lastly the inside of the card.


I’ve left the bottom section blank to write a message on.

There is a tutorial for this style of card here if you would like to make one yourself. I know I’ll be making more.

I’ll definitely be purchasing some more svgcut files too. They are the most organised and professional files I have cut to date.

I’m entering these items in the following challenges:

Polka Dot Birthday

I’m finally getting around to some blogging of Stampin’ Up! creations but I hope you have still enjoyed my Copic creations.

Todays item is a Gift Card holder using the Pop ‘N’ Cuts Base.

I found a great youtube tutorial (many actually) by Tanya Bell using the Pop ‘N’ Cuts base to make items different to the initial intention of the die.

Check out Tanya’s youtube channel here and the tutorial for the Gift Card Holder here.

I love Using dies in different ways as it shows your customers that the die is much more versatile than just it’s initial purpose.

I knew straight away what products (DSP, Stamp Set & Colours) I was going to use to recreate my own version of Tanya’s Gift Card Holder and this is how it turned out.

And the inside….

You may not be able to see it too clearly but there is an additional piece of card attached at the bottom (where the ribbon is wrapped) which will hold the gift card.

There is also a nice sized area to write a message to the lucky recipient.

I love how this turned out.

I hope you like my Gift Card Holder I created using Tanya’s tutorial.
