Blissful Bird box
All the snow over the last couple of days has been great for staying inside and doing lots of crafty stuff! Here is a box made using the Blissful Bird stamp and Bird Builder punch. The base is Early Expresso cardstock and the lid is Island Indigo. There's some Sycamore Street DSP on the top and the blossoms are from the Summer Silhouettes set (stamped in Pool Party and Marina Mist). My lovely upline, +Fanny Stafford showed me how to make a box using a shim, and how to get the same effect by holding your cardstock 1/16" in from the edge of the scoreboard. It definitely makes everything fit together really well!
Here's a card made with the lovely Everything Eleanor set. I've also used the Lace Brocade embossing folder and Print Poetry DSP. Fanny also kindly showed me the Rock & Roll rubber stamping technique. Here's a close-up, using Real Red with Early Expresso ink.
