Card set & box

Earlier in the week I had some of my internet friends here for another playday. The project was a boxed set of cards. Having just taken delivery of some of the new yummy colours I just had to have a play.

I need to thank Jenny Moors from Stamping Moments for the inspiration as I fell in love with the set she made. The 2nd card in is using the same card but it's catching the light oddly.

The snowflakes are from the Serene Snowflakes set in this years mini catty. I do hope they appear in the main catty when it's released in Oct as these are my idea of the perfect snowflake stamps.

All of the cards are using nowt but soft suede (woohoo, I've been after this colour since it was launched in the US last year) with a pearlescent cream card stock that I've had for yonks, soft suede ink (2nd impression for backgrounds) and either kraft or very vanilla taffeta ribbon. I've also used the scallop border punch and made dipdots with the champagne shimmer paint. The light isnt catching them very well as in real life they're a lovely soft gold colour but the sparkle is amazing. I wish this had been out when I was deeply into parchment craft as it knocks spots off of the very expensive dipping ink I used to buy.

This one isnt making it into the box set as it doesnt quite match with the others but I had fun making the dip dots using the mat pack as a placement guide. This time I used white craft ink and 3d'd the centre.

This is the box I started on Monday using rich razzleberry (the other colour I've been desperate for) with bashful blue. Not so sure that the colours work or it could be that I need to stamp the snowflake again but this time have less of the blue showing.
