Gold Brayered Pillow Box

If you saw my blog post yesterday, I told you I would have another Pillow Box, this time in Gold. I used the Delicata Golden Glitz Ink Pad and my Brayer to change the color of the Pillow Box. Isn’t it pretty? I decided for this one I would go all gold and Vanilla.

Add Gold to the Pillow Box with a Brayer and let it sit for a couple of minutes, then wipe off any excess ink. Wrap the 1/2″ Classic Weave Ribbon (from the Holiday Catalog on page 31) and tie into a bow.

Using the Golden Glitz Ink, stamp the ornament and holly from the Christmas Gleaming Bundle onto Vanilla cardstock. Punch the ornament with the coordinating punch and fussy cut the holly leaves & berries. Use a glue Dot to attach the holly to the top of the ornament. Punch a small hole and string some Baker’s Twine through the hole and around the ribbon and tie into a bow. The Baker’s Twine I used is retired, but went so well with this project I went a head and used it. To finish off, add the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots to the berries. I took my Aqua Painter and the Gold Ink and colored very lightly the holly leaves.

Cherry Cobbler Brayered Pillow Box

Who knew you could alter the color of your Pillow Box by brayering ink onto it? This is what they look like when you receive them.

Now, look what you can do to “gussy” them up.

Leaving your Pillow Box flat, ink up your brayer in Cherry Cobbler Ink. Start laying down color. Add more ink until you have the color you want. I went over mine several times to get a deep Cherry Cobbler. Let it set for a couple of minutes and then take a tissue or paper towel and rub any extra ink off. You will be glad you did, so the color doesn’t rub off on anything else.

Next add the 1/4″ Shimmer Ribbon around the box.

I used my Stitched Nested Labels Dies to cut one of the Labels out of the Christmastime Is Here Specialty DSP.  You can see the Gold Foil Paper peaking at the top and bottom of the Label.  It comes with the Roses Dies (in this suite). I just ran some Snail along the edge on the other side and adhered them. Next I fussy cut another flower to layer on top and attached with Dimensionals. I punched a couple of Leaves from the Leaf Punch in Vellum and sponged some of the Delicata Golden Glitz Ink. Use a couple of Glue Dots to layer them under the flower. Add Label to Pillow Box with a couple of Dimensionals in the center.

Finish off with a few of the Gold Glitter Enamel Dots. The sentiment was stamped in the Golden Glitz Ink as well and tucked just under the knot in the bow.

Tomorrow I will be sharing a Pillow Box I brayered in Gold. You won’t want to miss it!

Double Easel Fold, Christmastime Is Here

I love this fun fold. I saw it on Stamps n Lingers Blog. Cutting out that big image from the dsp makes this design so easy to make.

Lets get everything cut, its a lot, but worth it.

4 1/4″ x 11″ Cherry Cobbler Cardstock, score at, 5 1/2″

4″ x 10 1/4″ Mossy Meadow, scored at 5 1/4″ & 7 3/4″

4 x 5 1/4″ Mossy Meadow (one for the front and one for the inside)

3 3/4″ x 5″ Whisper White (for the inside)

3 7/8″ x 5 1/8″ DSP (for the front)

2 3/8″ x 3  7/8″ DSP & Whisper White (for those 2 small places on the front)

Take the 10 1/4″ Mossy Meadow Piece and fold so you have a mountain and a valley fold. Add the largest and smallest pieces of dsp.  For the smallest Whisper White piece, stamp the sentiment in Golden Glitz all the way to the bottom right hand side and let dry for a couple of minutes.  Die cut the two roses image with the large die. Arrange that piece so half is off the cardstock and adhere, ONLY the bottom of the die cut. Add that piece to the front panel.

Now you will fold the Cherry Cobbler card base in half. Attach the Mossy Meadow piece, centered. Your card will look like this.

Now add the last pieces, the Mossy Meadow and Whisper White. Stamp sentiment with Golden Glitz Ink and add a small portion of the dsp to the bottom. Its ok if you don’t have a full flower, cut around the top and leave the bottom straight to fit on the bottom of your cardstock.
