Wishing you a masculine birthday …

Another masculine card today, made with items from the Stampin’ Up seasonal catalogue – sweater weather designer series paper and the Christmas stamp set “wishing you” – it’s great that you can use it for other occasions and not just for Christmas …

The colours in the paper are great for guy cards.

I sponged around the edges of the sentiment to make it pop,  

and made a matching gift tag too, colouring the whisper white

bakers’ twine with chocolate chip ink …

Here’s what I used to make today’s projects – all supplies from Stampin’ Up!:

cardstock: crumb cake, pumpkin pie, very vanilla; stamp sets: wishing you; inks: chocolate chip; punches: star (merry minis punch pack); accessories: stampin’ dimensionals, sweater weather dsp, whisper white bakers’ twine, paper snips, sponge daubers, stampin’ write marker pens in chocolate chip, pumpkin pie and so saffron.

Pinkies Stampin’ Up! autumn/winter seasonal catalogue blog hop …

Blog hop logo

Thank you for joining us on another Pinkies Blog Hop! We’re showcasing lots of gorgeous projects using products from the new Stampin’ Up!® Autumn/Winter Seasonal Catalogue. Simply use the buttons at the end of each post to keep hopping!  

If you’ve arrived from Sarah’s blog, a big hello to you.  

There are so many lovely new products to choose from in the seasonal catalogue that I was spoiled for choice. The winter frost designer series paper really caught my eye as it is just beautiful.  The designs are so gorgeous – I love it all. After stroking the paper for a while (I know, us crafters love to stroke paper!) I cut into it to make this pretty gift box, ideal for holding personalised stationery, recipes or greetings cards …

It will make an ideal Christmas gift and I know just who I’m going to give it to. 

I added some matching dividers with space to write notes such as birthdays and important dates …

To make the box, you need just one 12”x12” piece of cardstock and one sheet of designer series paper, with a little extra for embellishments and dividers if you wish.  

The box holds standard sized cards and envelopes.  I have a tutorial available if you would like to make one yourself, with sizes in both inches and centimetres. 

There was enough designer paper left to also make a 6″x6″ card and matching gift tag …
