YOU picked and now let’s see my Wild Rose dies pillow box! The results are in from my Email and Facebook poll and it was a close race.
Did your vote win?
Let’s see what I came up with using the Wild Rose Dies.
What Do I Like Best About It?
- Elegant with a touch of whimsy with the sweet dotted pillow box.
- Looks intricate, yet really simple to make with a few key die cut pieces.
- A little work of art to add a special quality to your gift.
One of the best parts about Stampin’ Up! bundles (besides the 10% off)? Everything works so wonderfully together. Stamps, framed and detailed dies complement each other perfectly.
Let’s take a closer look and see if you can pick out the different elements I used for this design.
How To: Wild Rose Dies Pillow Box
The flower is stamped with the middle flower from the picture on the set and the leaf closest to it. The flower is Rococo Rose and the leaves are Garden Green (stamped off TWO times). Both are cropped with its outline frame.
See how lovely the flower is just stamped with that one image alone.
A few more die cuts completes the box embellishment:
- the large label in Thick Whisper White
- two Garden Green leaves
- one Rococo Rose flower strip
I did use my Stamparatus for perfect placement of the two Rococo Rose greetings. Isn’t the brush lettering of the “Blessed” beautiful?
Jo’s Tips for Putting It All Together
1.Glue your stamped leaves to the back of your rose first.
2. Then glue the rose to the top left of the label being careful to place so you can see the greeting.
3. Use your silicone craft sheet and build up in this order.
- long strip glued behind the label in the middle
- one green leaf behind label at bottom
- second green leaf behind the rose
4. place a line of dimensionals on the strip and adhere to the box
My pearls are coloured with the dark and light Stampin’ Blends – Rococo Rose and Shaded Spruce.
Now It’s Your Turn!
