A Hostess Gift with Array of Sunshine

October 10, 2011

I just love the Array of Sunshine Hostess stampset from the current catalogue.  It probably has something to do with all the layering you can get from the flowers.  I do love to cut my stamps out to add dimension to my projects and this set is just perfect for it.

I made a set of 4 cards and a box to hold them for my one of my Hostesses last weekend.  I used  the new in-colours Lucky Limeade and Wisteria Wonder, because Lynda just loves purple or mauve.

I started with Whisper White card stock scored and folded card and added a layer of Lucky Limeade card stock which I have embossed using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.  I cut the Top Note die from Whisper White card stock and attached it to the centre of the Lucky Limeade card stock.  I stamped the large flower from the Array of Sunshine stampset 3 times onto Whisper White card stock using Wisteria Wonder ink and cut one whole flower, one flower with two sections and one just the centre of the flower.  I also stamped the small flower onto Whisper White card stock twice using Wisteria Wonder ink.  I cut one whole flower and one with just the centre flower.  I stamped the large leaf image from the same stampset onto Whisper White card stock using Lucky Limeade ink and cut it out.  I also stamped the small leaf onto Whisper White card stock using Lucky Limeade ink and cut it out.  I attached the flower sections to each other using dimensionals and then arranged the leaves and flowers onto the Top Note.  I added a large Basic Pearl to the centre of the large flower and used my Two-Way Glue Pen to colour in the centre of the small flower and add some Dazzling Diamonds.  Lastly I stamped the greeting from Sincere Salutations onto Whisper White card stock and punched it out using the Large Oval Punch, attached it to a Scallop Oval cut from Wisteria Wonder card and then attached it to the Top Note.

I used Gwen’s Quick Box pattern  from The Three Sisters Blog to make the box.  (This is a free site.)  I stamped the large flower onto Whisper White card stock using Wisteria Wonder ink and cut out the flower.  I stamped the large leaf onto Whisper White card using Lucky Limeade ink and cut them out.  I attached the leaf and flower to the piece of Whisper White card stock and then embossed the whole piece using the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.   I attached this piece to the lower front of the box.  To decorate the flip top I stamped the small flower twice onto Whisper White card using Wisteria Wonder ink and cut out one whole flower and one small flower.  I placed the small one on top of the large one using a dimensional.  I stamped one large leaf image and two small leaf images onto Whisper White card stock and cut them out. I attached the leaves and the flower to Whisper White cardstock and then stamped “a gift for you” from the Bring On The Cake stampset on the right hand side using Wisteria Wonder ink.  I coloured the centre of the flower using my Two-Way Glue Pen and added Dazzling Diamonds.

I didn’t take a photo but I decorated the back of the box in a similar manner to the front of the box by attaching a large flower in the centre of the back panel with one large set of leaves on either side and then embossed with the Square Lattice Embossing Folder.

This is a great box pattern as it will hold 4 cards quite easily or a very heavily embellished card you want to hand deliver.

My Hostess was very pleased with her gift.

Bye for now, Kris.
