Social Stamping Blog Hop - Subtles

Hello again and welcome to the Social Stamping Blog Host where I am joined by a group of talented crafters from around Australia and New Zealand.

The group was started by my lovely friend and fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator Kelly Kent as a way of keeping connected, creating and sharing while we were all being socially distant due to Covid-19.

You may have arrived from seeing Lisa's gorgeous creation but if you started here, click the 'Next' button at the bottom of this post to continue hopping.

The theme Kelly has chosen for us this month is 'Subtles'.

Subtles is one of Stampin' Up!'s colour families and, as the name suggests, features colours with soft tones. One of my absolute favourite colours, 'Highland Heather', belongs to this family and I have used it to create today's project.

I love making gift boxes to match my cards. This box measures 10.5cms long x 7cms wide x 4.4cms high so it can hold quite a lot of goodies.

I originally designed this card and box as part of my 'Quite Curvy' product-based class earlier this year but I liked it so much, I have re-created it several times in various different colours.

Products used (with the exception of the Layering Ovals, Gingham Gala Sequins and Big Shot which are now retired) are available to purchase from my Online Shop here

I hope you have enjoyed seeing my project today. Click the 'Next' button to see what my talented friend Sandra from New Zealand has created for you

  1. Super cute - what a great box - this would be perfect for so many things, and the curvy bundle is a brilliant way to embellish it!! Love this.

  2. So gorgeous Denise. I love your coordinating box. The cut out leaf edging looks fab. X

  3. I'm a big Highland Heather fan too Denise. Love your projects - clever use of the negative and love how you've tied the projects together using the same elements. Gorgeous :)

  4. This is so clever Denise. I'm always in awe of your box & bag projects - stunning!!! Thanks for joining in with Social Stamping. Kelly x
