Yeovil girlies look away now.

There are a load of us docraft members meeting up for a playday in Yeovil in a few weeks and we're making 3 projects using the following 2 stamp sets. Soooo if you're coming to Yeovil look away now ;o)

One of the great things working with SU papers is that I can work at night and know that the colours will always match. Not like a few xmas's ago when I sat and cut 50 bookatrix cards while watching a film. I was horrified the next morning when I realised the white hammer cardstock wasnt all the same shade! It should have been as it had all been bought from papermill but it wasnt and it was glaringly obvious.

This is playful petals co-ordinating with it's DSP paper set Tea Party. Stamped onto whisper white before being coloured with markers and 3d'd.

My favourite SAB set, whimsical words sentiment stamped on so saffron before being attached to the main image with some rings.

This was supposed to be the project for Yeovil but our loud mouthed spidy had to say "but what about making it into an easel card"!

Well this one is Kraft & bella bleu dsp with playful petals stamped on whisper white & ballet blue before 3d'ing.

I opened my precious pot of filigree brads to make the drawer handle.

Here is the project we are making albeit we're using different colours.

This is an unusual combo of colours, taken with teal, very vanilla and mellow moss cs and Nouveau Chic dsp. Again playful petals has been 3d'd and I used oval all sentiments with the plain and scalloped punch.

Another of my precious filligree brads for the handle.

Top tip for anyone making these small treat boxes... decorate before you make the box.. makes life easier and you can use the stamp a ma jig to centre things, oops lol.

Almost amethyst & perfect plum card with perfect plum, bashful blue, lavender lace inks. Sentiment is from Vintage labels, flowers from playful petals, flight of the butterfly stamps and matching punch. Scalloped circle and 1 3/8ths circle punch.

Wow, huge recipe list for a box that only measures 2" lol

I love playing with backgrounds, this one was made by dapping on several colours of inks before spritzing with water and more dapping whilst still damp then triple embossed with clear ep and a dazzle versamark ink pad.

Craft white ink stamped onto vellum before being punched and a very fine edging of dazzling diamonds. Matted onto elegant eggplant over whisper white which had been ran through a cuttlebug folder. Scallop punched border and some elegant eggplant grosgrain ribbon.

This is the top secret project for Yeovil, a zig zag card using pocket silhouettes & flight of the butterfly.

Certain Celery, almost amethyst and whisper white cs with lavender lace, pretty in pink, certain celery ink. This is much easier to make than a trifold shutter but you have to be precise with the measurements.
