Welcome to the Magenta Tiger!

This week on the CASEING THE CATTY Sunday Blog Hop we are caseing from pages 36-47 of thew Holiday Catalogue. I’ve taken inspiration from the beautiful Stampin’ Up! creations on page 36. These projects use elegant metallic foil and the Year of Cheer Speciality Designer Series Paper.  

I created a gorgeous Gift Box using the amazing Year of Cheer Speciality Designer Series Paper. The Champagne Foil in this paper is simply amazing, it catches the light and sparkles beautifully!

Here is my Gift Box:

The measurements of the box are based on a You Tube Video by Jennifer Frost. The top of the box is the ‘Sparkle’ pattern in the Year of Cheer Speciality Designer Series and the bottom made with Thick Whisper White Card stock. I used Stampin’ Up!® Tear & Tape Adhesive to assemble the box. It’s super strong for boxes and 3D items.

I’ve added Basic Black Archival Ink with a Sponge Dauber to the back of the Foil Snowflake.  

The circles from the Cheers to the Year Stamp Set are stamped in Smoky Slate and Basic Grey Archival Ink. These have been layered over the Snowflake and some Mini Sequin Trim. 

I’ve stamped the sentiment ‘season of cheer’ from the Watercolour Christmas Stamp Set twice on Whisper White Cardstock. Once with Smoky Slate and once with Basic Black Archival Ink to give a shadowed effect. This sentiment was punched out with the Everyday Label Punch. I’ve punched two other layers: Smoky Slate and Basic Black. I cut these in half and layered them behind the sentiment.
