3x3 Boxes Galore!


Good morning!

Since my post today is filled with lots of photos,I thought I'd share the links to all Gina's Design Team member's blog here at the top of my post, so they don't get lost or overlooked. Tonight we're showcasing Sweetest Blessings, Tag Lines, and Gina's new Digital papers! She's offering her Debut Digital pack for FREE starting tonight and running until Sunday. Check out her blog for the coupon code!

Gina, Joanne, Cammie, Theresa, Kurtis, Erika, Donna, Mary, Emily, Melanie, and Cindy

I made two boxes to share today that are filled with sets of four 3x3 cards and matching envelopes - yep, I've been busy! lol! I'm planning on offering this as an upcoming class at GinaK's store in February.

I'm only going to show one card from each box for the sake of time and space, but I'll be going more into depth on each project in the coming days here on my blog, sharing the templates, details, and photos.

Here's my first card made with one of my very favorite GinaK Stamps ever called Sweetest Blessings....

I stamped the cake and sentiment at the same time - don't you love being able to do that with unmounted stamps and your acrylic blocks!? I used Black Memento ink and colored the cake with Copics highlighting the frosting with Stickles, the plate with Crystal Lacquer, and the cherry with the Clear Stardust Glitter Pen.

I also made matching envelopes for each card. Here's the card peeking out...

And, here's the front of the envelope just because it's all decorated too ...


I was so happy to see that Gina's Sateen Flowers work perfectly with SU's 5 Flower punch! The papers for this project are all retired SU designer papers and their textured Chocolate Chip and Purely Pomegranite.

Next up is my 3x3 box made with Gina's new Free with Three stamp set Tag Lines.


When I got this stamp set, I thought of how fun it would be to make a notecard with each of the sayings to give as little love/thinking of you notes. And, I decided to make another little box to store them in - one that I could keep out on my dresser handy to grab when I needed them.

Here's one of the little notecards....



Wouldn't this be a fun little card to tuck in my daughter's lunchbox when she aces her next test? I used SU's retired Afternoon Tea dsp for the cardfront. To embellish the Paper Punch-out, I ran it through my Big Shot with the Polka Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder and then sponged SU's cocoa ink over it to soften the look a little. The sentiment is stamped in Memento's Cocoa ink on watercolor paper (for the texture) and then cut out with a Nestability die.

The ribbon is SU's Felt ribbon that they recently sold in their Winter Mini catalog. I am afraid to admit that it's the first time I used it! I love it and now wish I had bought more! Isn't that the way it always goes...

Here's a bird's eye view of the whole box set...

And, finally, here's a close up of the matching envelope...


Well, if you'd made it this far you deserve a prize! lol! I will share the dimensions of these projects in a few days here on my blog.

I hope you'll join us at Gina's Release Party tonight in her member forum on Splitcoast. There will be contests and challenges along with more preview projects from everyone on Gina's Design Team. I have several things that I'll be sharing along with a Sketch challenge that I'll be posting at the 8:00 (CST) hour.

Rest up - the party starts at 7 (CST)!!
