You are One in a Million Keepsake Box

You are One in a Million Keepsake Box

Hi everyone!  Thanks so much for popping by today.  I am just so excited to showcase the brand new release from Heartfelt Creations – The Blazing Poppy Collection.  You are going to absolutely love this gorgeous new collection.

Has the humdrum of the daily grind sapped your energy and stunted your creative mojo? Rejuvenate your creativity with the saturated colors and resplendent artwork of the Blazing Poppies Collection of stamps, dies and designer papers from Heartfelt Creations. Escape to verdant fields where dancing poppies sway like ballerinas wearing dramatic hues of blush, coral, peach, scarlet and ebony. Let this glorious canvas of flowing script, heirloom lace, ornate flourishes, flower laden arbors, bold stripes and soft neutral backgrounds enliven your senses and awaken your inner Van Gogh. The Blazing Poppy stamp and die allows you to fashion bold, life-like poppies in every size and color. You’ll design museum worthy backgrounds, card focals, layouts and home décor with the sumptuous stamps and paper collection. Create your own masterpiece, and spark your imagination with the amazing artistry and uncommon brilliance of Blazing Poppies.

I decided to create this beautiful keepsake box to introduce this new collection to showcase how beautiful the paper collection and poppy flowers are.  If you want to give this a go, this fabulous cut file can be found here.

Project Instructions:

Other products:  Keepsake Box SVG cutting file, Ivory Card Stock, Forest Moss Distressed Ink, Versamark, Ranger Fern Green Embossing Powder, Pearl Trim and Lace from my stash and electronic die cutting machine.

Instructions:

Begin by cutting out the body of the box in ivory card stock using your electronic die cutting machine. Cut the top decorative panels from the Blazing Poppy Paper Collection.  Once your pieces have been cut using your electronic die cutting machine, assemble them according to the photo for the SVG file allowing time for the glue to dry after each step.  Tip:  For the curved pieces it is easier to curve the pieces by rubbing them across the edge of your table prior to fastening them.  They will take shape easier and look nicer.  Once the box is assembled, let’s add some flowers.  The Blazing Poppy Petals Cling Stamp was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored using Carmine Red Metallic 3D Stamp Paint.  The leaves are distressed with Forest Moss Distressed Ink.  One of the Poppy Fillers images inside the top was stamped with Versamark and heat embossed with Ranger Fern Green Embossing Powder.  Finally fill with your treasured keepsakes and enjoy!

 

Have a wonderful day!

I have worked full time in the Finance and Insurance industry for the past 29 years. I absolutely adore all things paper & glue and have been involved with crafting in some way for most of my life. I have a great admiration for creating projects from paper that may not necessarily be made from paper. When not in my craft room, I enjoy spending time at our cottage enjoying all that nature and suburban life has to offer.
