Hello form Fi at the Magenta Tiger,

This week we’re CASEing from the Artistic Expressions section of the Annual Catalogue. This section has some beautiful samples to gain inspiration from. I’ve chosen to ‘CASE’ the Berry Burst Box on page 152: I’ve changed up the colours and the stamp set.

Since the new Catalogue was launched, I’ve noticed that I’ve been neglecting most of the Stampin’ Up!® Colours … actually all the colours except the new In Colours! Sweet Sugarplum is starring today (with Berry Burst – I can’t help but use it!) 

Here is my box:

Sweet Sugarplum, Berry Burst and Smoky Slate co-ordinate so beautifully!

CASEing the Catty 136 -Artistic Expressions

I created a little box with 4 matching cards to give as a gift. The dimensions of the box are 11.5cm x 11.5cm x 1.5cm. I used the Envelope Punch Board and The Crafty Owls’s Box Buster. This tool is amazing, it’ll help you make boxes of all sizes and shapes. I inputed the below dimensions then followed the instructions on the website to get my box …

Box Depth: 110mm

Box Width: 110mm

Box Height: 15mm

This is what my box looked like before I decorated it, folded it and glued it together with Fast Fuse.

I cut out the lattice from the Eclectic Layers Thinlits Dies in Berry Burst Card Stock. I’ve stamped ‘A Little Thanks’ in Berry Burst on Whisper White Ink then punch out the label with the Classic Label Punch.


I’ve stamped leaves (Smoky Slate) and crosses (Berry Burst) directly on the Whisper White Card Stock  and I’ve stamped the flower (Sweet Sugarplum) directly on the piece of Vellum. The Diecut Flower is from the Eclectic Layers Framelits in Sweet Sugarplum Card Stock.

I made 4 matching cards with different sentiments: Happy Birthday  (Sunshine Sayings Stamp Set) and A Little Thanks (One Big Meaning Stamp Set). This box is going to be a handy present for someone.

We’d love you to share your creations on our Facebook Page

Keep hopping along … next up is a gorgeous creation by Kelly Kent.

Happy crafting, Love Fi xxx
