Two Little Cards

Hello Blog friends and followers, thank you for popping in and Thank You for all your comments on my box.  Remember it was not my idea it was http://johnnextdoor.blogspot.co.uk/ ... did you pop over and have a look at John`s Blog??? 
I use StampinUp Ink pads.  I really like them and use them lots now I have mastered getting them open!!!  The girl I get my things from often sends me a Free Gift.  The last gift was the Thankful Life Stamp Set.  It is one of their multiple layer sets.  I have lots of their "two step" sets and love them.  This one I found a bit tricky but I got there in the end.
Here are two cards I made using the set.  I have made more but always forget to photograph them.

Included in the set is the vase and sentiment
Base White Card Stock, pink card for matting
I inked my stamp then stamped off some ink on a crinkled up piece of Cling Film
That gave me a textured effect on the vase
That`s it for today
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it
Till next time 
Hugs

My take on "Johnnextdoors" Box!!!

Hello Blog friends and followers, thank you so much for popping by.  I love that you take time from your busy days to visit.
Hope you all enjoyed the weekend weather.  We managed to share in it here in the North East of Scotland.  Not wall to wall sunshine but who cares the sun shone a fair bit it was warm, that`s a real bonus for us.
A week past Saturday on  http://johnnextdoor.blogspot.co.uk/ John showed a beautiful box.  A few asked for a Tutorial, John gave us that this Saturday, John is so generous with his Crafty Knowledge.  If you have not visited John`s Blog please pop over and take a look he makes some stunning cards, also some amazing 3D projects.

Here is my take on John`s Box:-
The box was made using white 300gsm card
I added paper round the box because there were sticky finger marks on the white!!!
SB Die for the base and lid .... John did not do his as fancy
Flowers made using a very old Woodware Punch, bits of greenery from my Die Cuts Box
Some ribbon and dazzler from my stash
 
I have to admit it was a rather fiddly project, I did enjoy the challenge though.  That`s the first one, I have started another.  John said to put glue on the "tabs" and sick to a plain circle cut for the base.  Personally I found it easier to put the glue on the base and stick a few tabs at a time. 
 
That`s it from me for today
Thank you so much for your visit I really appreciate it 
Till next time
 Hugs
