Stampin' Up! Australia - Stampin' Up! Gift Box Punch Board


Welcome to this week's CASE-ing the Catty Blog Hop! Welcome from Stasia’s blog.

This week the Blog Hop challenge is all about CASE-ing a 3D gift project inspired by the  Stampin' Up! Holiday catalogue.

CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything.  This whole blog hop is about using the current Stampin' Up! Catalogues to help you create.  Sometimes crafters need a springboard to just get started and the catalogues are certainly a demonstrator or customer's best resource.

I’m not sure about the Mossy Meadow ribbon...I should have gone for something silky or satin I think. 

Anyway...the box was fun to make and it looks great with the holly stamp from Embellished Ornaments on it. :)

Here's my inspiration image:

  1. ooo I love your box!! It's so cool when someone CASEs the same project!! What a great idea to use the DSP on the tag - this looks great!! (and I love the way you tilted the box for the photo - I wish I thought of that!!! teehee)

  2. I love your little box & the extra little embellishments you have added. A great CASE from the catty! I really must give these boxes a try.

  3. Very cute CASE Alison, love the stamping on the box.

  4. Alison I never even saw that box in the catalogue!! And I do love that 2 of us have created the same- but different - item! love the stamping on the box and the tag. great CASE

  5. I really love the box and the gift tag, I must try the layering of the bubbles as it looks so effective with the glimmer paper.

  6. Oh so cute!!! I love the ornament done like that. I must give it a try.

  7. The foil & glimmer bauble is gorgeous! The holly stamp is one of my faves - love how you have created formal "stripes" with it. :)
