Another Gift Box

I was on a roll the other day and whipped up this box with matching cards.  I used the beautiful flocked window sheet from Candlelight Christmas Speciality DSP for the lid and kept the cards really simple.  I used the EF Holiday Frames again and punched large ovals from the left over flocked window sheet for the cards.  I also cut the ribbon in half lengthwise so that it would not be too thick when posting the cards.

Time for Tea

Our Ewe Lambs arrived safely but one of them seems determine to get out even though we have installed a 7 wire fence around the paddock.  At the moment I prefer stamping as it easier control!!!!!

I adore the Tea Shoppe stamp set so I used Kim Score's Hot Cocoa Holder tutorial but  changed it up to use the Tea Shoppe stamp set.  Inside of filling the box with marshmallow's I used sugar cubes.  I also had a small bit of empty space in the box so I tied by cinnamon sticks together with ribbon.  This box of tea was a perfect fit for the box.  It was sheer luck as I made the box then looked for a box of tea.
Thanks for visiting and have a fabulous day.

Gift Box Set

Well life sure has been busy lately.  We have purchased some Wiltshire Ewe Lambs and they arrive today.  We are going to be breeding them.  We have managed to find a Ram Lamb but he is still a bit young so we have to wait until November for him. 

We have been making some changes at home and the deck is nearly finished and the spa pool roof framing is up so just waiting for the roof now.  A few weeks ago the wind blew the spa pool cover off even ripping and breaking the latches.  It was quite badly damaged so we have ordered a new one and it should be here by the end of the week.  Well enough about my life and onto some stamping. 

This is what we make at class last week.  A gift box with four cards using the Holiday Frame Embossing folder.  It would make a great gift.  This box was inspired by Chiaki Haverstick.  She has the most gorgeous tutorials.

Betsy's Blossoms

This was one of the cards we made at card class last week.  I was not sure about this stamp set when I first got it but I really do like it and can't wait to ink it up again.

I managed to get a few cards prepped for my next couple of classes as the weather was just awful on Sunday.  We were lucky this time and didn't get flooded in but the front paddock has plenty of water in it and the river level got to it's second warning level.  Our spa pool cover did blow off and it is quite badly damaged.  Holes everywhere and the latches are all broken as well.  I need to check the plants it landed on and make sure they are okay. 

Stamps:  Curly Cute and Besty’s Blossoms
