Morning everyone, hope you're managing to stay cool....we've just returned from a few nice days in Edinburgh, but boy, was it humid up there!
Anyway, today is the start of the July challenge from
The theme this month is 'Flowers', and as usual, the prize is a fab £40 of products from Lavinia Stamps. If you don't have a blog, you can enter by email, by following the link from the challenge blog HERE
Here is my DT project for this challenge.
As always, I've used card stock from
White 'super-smooth' - 300gsm.
A heavy card is needed for this type of project.
I used an old template to cut out the shape of the tissue-box, then scored and folded where necessary. The template needed to be cut twice, to make 4 sides.
I only joined one edge, to enable me to stamp on a flat surface.
Then I covered the complete piece with BRUSHO paints and allowed to dry thoroughly.
Next, I used various LAVINIA stamps, working along the flat surface, from one end to the other.
A couple of die-cuts, a white pen for highlighting, and the box was ready to assemble.
These are my fave colours, of course, but I also wanted a light (ish) background to show off the fab stamps.
Well, hope you like it.....if you have time, pop over to the rest of the team blogs, listed on my blog side-bar, there is some fantastic inspiration there.
Just want to remind you of this week's Papermilldirect 'special offer', too.....
At 315gsm this is a lovely heavy card with an embossing that we don't normally have in coloured card.
This comes in a small A4 box of approximately 70 - 75 sheets for only £3.96
Catch you all soon,
