It is very cold here in Maryland. So far our local area is lucky, we haven’t really had any accumulation of snow today. A few flurries and that is about it.
Today I have been working on some Valentine ideas. These minature pillow boxes by Sizzix are actually usable. The one’s in the picture are empty, however they can easily be filled with candy, or maybe even a few small clear stamps. I discovered it is best to use the crease dye with this box and to use good quality CS (I recommend Stampin Up) otherwise you will have problem with the ends splitting. I also recommend using that red liner tape to hold them closed. Otherwise they tend to pop open.
I am so ‘re in love’ with my sizzix Big Shot (it is the same machine as the big kick) and totally in love with the new embossing folders from Cuttlebug.
In the sample cards you see above, I used the Sizzix Scallop punch for the ‘best friend’ saying, a small clip is attached above the two girls using E6000 glue.
The background is embossed with the cuttlebug embossing folder. There is glitter randomlly placed on the card. The hearts on the minature pillow boxes are also a sizzix bigz die.
Happy Stamping, don’t hesitate to email me if you have any questions!
