Kaszazz Gift Boxes...


Today's post is featuring some of Kaszazz's Gift Boxes, which I have decorated using a selection of products - Kaszazz, Heartfelt Creations, Stampin Up etc.

First, I painted each box with an acrylic paint (various brands), then using a stencil, I applied gesso to the sides and the lids of each box.

Next I chose the flowers and the leaves for each box and created those - some are stamped and embossed, others are just stamped. The flowers and leaves are either hand cut, die-cut and some are punched out with punches.

I created flower centres - either by using a brad or simply just rhinestones and pearls.

Laid out the design for each lid - choosing where and how many flowers and leaves I would need.  I have also placed a flower and or some rhinestones/pearls on the sides of each box.

Lastly I have assembled each top, adding ribbon and extra rhinestones/pearls as needed.

Just add some chocolates or some jewellery, maybe a nice soap - a beautiful gift idea!

Thanks for visiting,

Stamp It Fragile Fairy Melanie Cards...

Good morning,

Hope you have a wonderful day planned!  If you have planned a gardening day, perhaps you may see some beautiful fairies like these...

They have been created using papers and cardstock from Stampin' Up, stamped with kaleidoscope inkpads in various colourways and using a glue pen, I have added glitter to the images.

I have intentionally left the cards blank (ie have not added "Happy Birthday" etc) so they can be used for any purpose. I have also lined each card and added an image of the fairy to the lining.

Enjoy your day!

Covered sticky notes


For today I am sharing with you the latest batch of covered sticky notes created for our market stall.

The larger notes have been embellished with papers, stamped and fussy cut images and stickers of various types, and finished off with brads and bling.

The smaller notes, as well as all the above, have bling flourishes, die cuts, ribbon and paper flowers.
These make a great small gift, and are much more attractive near the phone than the plain notes.

Pocket Note Cards - Kaszazz

Good Morning

Today's share is a couple of sets of Pocket note cards created with Journal pockets and ivory card. All products are from Kaszazz.

On the first set the pockets have been stencilled with the diamond background and distress ink and then stamped in archival ink, with images from Asian Botanicals set and the mushrooms stamp. Hummingbird stamps have also been used on the back of the pocket  and it has been spritzed with Dylusions spray. Card has been cut to fit the pockets and stamped with images from the same sets.

The second set uses the same stamp sets, with the addition of the lantern and dragonfly stamps.  The background is stencilled with Picket Fence distress ink.
The Just a Little Note sentiment is from Mini Messages. Images have been coloured with Alcohol  Ink markers.
These pocket note cards are a great alternative to a regular card.

Kaszazz Elephant Cards...


Today's cards both feature an Elephant stamp from Kaszazz. The image was stamped on white card with versamark ink and embossed with black embossing powder. Then sections were coloured to match the base card colour.

The first card - pink - has a black layer, followed by a stamped background layer. I have then added another black and pink layer followed with the layer that has the image stamped on it.

Next, the grey card, has not as many layers and they both have rhinestones in each corner of the white layer as well as for the elephant's eye.

This elephant stamp from Kaszazz can be used in so many ways!

Enjoy your day!
