Mojo 241 on Tuesday...

I'm only a day behind...Mojo Monday on a Tuesday. Tojo Tuesday then? When I saw the sketch, the stamp from Besty's Blossoms came to mind for the center circle. The stamp set also had the flower and leaf elements. 

These items used in this card are a sneak peak from the Stampin Up catalog coming out June 1st. 

I used two embossing folders to add lots of texture and the smaller flower and leaves are hand cut.

Added the rhinestone for sparkle.

Floral District Gable Box with Rosette

My Stampin Up order finally arrived today. I couldn't wait to see the new paper in person and make something. I made another gable box using the Floral District DSP. I used the directions found over at Split Coast {HERE} for the link. The paper rosette is a strip of DSP measuring 1-1/2" by 12" and scored at every 1/4". It makes a perfect size rosette for most projects. 

Here is a side view of the rosette and box.

To hold the top together, 
I used Modern Label Punch and fastened it with a silver brad. 

Used the Stampin' Around Wheel (green flowers around the bottom of the box) before assembling the box. These flowers are on all four sides.

Close up view of rosette. Layered with scallop punch and hand cut flower and leaves from Betsy's Blossoms stamp set.

Here's the Stampin Up! supply list for the  Floral District Gable Box:
  • Stamps: Besty's Blossoms #126006 
  • Ink:  Gumball Green #126861, Tangerine Tango #111834
  • Card Stock: Whisper White #100730, Floral District DSP #126919

Teacher Appreciation Gifts Gable Box

May 7th is Teacher Appreciation Week and as a gift to the teachers in my school, I have chosen to make this cute little "Gable Box" that is created from a single sheet of 8 1/2" x 11" paper. I stamped directly on the paper after I scored and cut, but before folding and glueing. The belly band around the box is 1" thick and 12" long. I put the teacher's first name monogram on each box to personalize it.

For the treat inside, I have placed 5 cookies inside a plastic bag with a twisty-tie.
