There are so many amazing products available for FREE during Stampin’ Up!’s Sale-A-Bration it is hard to choose my favourite. I did fall in love with the cute little chicken in the Hey Chick Stamp Set here but I have come to also love the gorgeous Inside the Lines DSP.
I love to colour in so this one naturally was something I wanted to get. However I sometimes (well a lot of the time actually) find myself really short on time when I want/need to make a card or a gift so colouring in the whole sheet of DSP is really just not an option BUT you really don’t need to. As you can see with this card and gift box the Inside the Lines DSP is truly the star however my colouring is very minimal – still will maximum effect though.
The card itself is so very simple, just a simple Black card base with a piece of the lovely DSP attached to the card front. I have cut a small panel of black cardstock for the middle of the card front and place a piece of the DSP on one side and stamped the “thanks” greeting from the Suite Sentiments Stamp Set from Stampin’ Up! on the other side. The only colouring I did was on this very small panel and I used Flirty Flamingo, So Saffron and Emerald Envy marker pens. To finish off I tied a little bow and added to the dimensioned up panel.
Of course I had to make a matching gift box and wanted desperately to try out the NEW Window Box from Stampin’ Up! Again I kept it very simple and added another piece of the Inside the Lines DSP to the lid of the box with only a little pop of colouring just behind the greeting on the top of the box.
The extra detail and options you have to choose from with this set of Dies is fantastic, for this box I used the little flowers/hearts image to create pop up panels for three of the sides of my box to thread the ribbon behind – so pretty.
All my customers received a little card kit of this card with their new catalogues in January and really hope they enjoyed putting it together, the create thing is that you can colour the panel with whatever markers, water colour pencils you have or even use a blender pen to add your colour from an ink pad.
