This inspiration Wednesday has lots of sparkle with it....have fun.

  Hi, this Wednesday is all wrapped up with flowers and glitter..."Lets celebrate you"


White stamping card stock, Spectrum Noir Harmony ink- Olive, Pine Tree, Green  Topaz and yellow, Misti stamping tool, Foam inking tool, 3D double sided tape, 3D foam double sided tape. Hot Glue gun, Yellow card stock, Cream organza ribbon.

This box when made measures: 1” deep x 5 ½” hight x 7 ½ “ width
To make the box base: Taking the yellow card stock and cut the base to 9 ½” x 7 ½”. On the 7 ½” side make a fold at 1” and a fold at 6  ½”. At the 9 ½” side make a fold at 1” and a fold line at 8 ½”.Taking the yellow cardstock and cut the lid to 9 ¾” x 7 ¾”. On the 7 ¾” side make a fold at 1” and a fold at 6 ¾”. At the 9 ¾” side make a fold at 1” and a fold at 8 ¾”.On the longer sides of the lid and bottom box cut into the corners, fold all fold lines and adhere to form a box and lid.
To decorate the box top: Taking sheet 2B from the paper collection and cut this a little smaller than the box lid. Ink the edges with the Green Topaz ink and the inking tool. Adhere this to the box lid.
Taking the gold cardstock and the white stamping cardstock, cut the lace frames using the Elaborate Oval  frames die set. Cutting the frame background first out of the gold cardstock then alternating with the white stamping card, cut the layers out. Ink the white card stock frame edges with the green topaz ink. Taking the sepia archival ink, stamp the sentiment to the last lace frame.  Apply to the white card stock frame edges clear drying glue with the aid of the hydra sponge. Dip the edges with glue on it in the glitter. Set aside to dry. When dry tap any lose glitter away then adhere all the layers to the box lid using 3D foam tape and clear drying glue.
Make the flowers and leaves by using both the large and small stamp and die sets. Use the library green ink for the stamping. The flowers are coloured with the yellow ink and the leaves with the green inks.  In total there are 13 leaves, 2 large flowers, 4 med sized flowers and 3 small sized flowers. Bring shape to the leaves and flowers by using the matching molds and the deluxe flower shaping kit. The flowers have two layers. The flower centres are made by pricking a hole in the centres by using the sharp end of the golf tools. Cut the stamens in half and thread through the hole then secure the stamen ends using the hot glue gun. Apply clear drying glue to the leaf ends and the flower petals then dip then into the glitter. Put aside to dry. When dry tap away any lose excess glitter. Trim away the stamen tails behind the flower ready to glue down to the box front. Arrange the cluster of flowers and leaves, adhere in place with the hot glue gun or clear drying glue. To finish the project, make a triple bow from the organza ribbon and adhere to the left side of the box using the hot glue gun.

If you love glitter and all that goes with it....this one is for you.
The new release dies are perfect for decorating your card backgrounds or crafting projects.
Till next week....have scrappy fun.
Glittery, sparkly inky hugs....Susan
