Chocolate, Candy Dispenser - Thinking Outside of the Box - Design Team Blog Hop

Hi and welcome to the first ever blog hop from the Design Team that has it all Wrapped Up otherwise known as Thinking Outside of the Box.  We'll be sharing different boxes and wrap designs with you over the coming months.  We've had a few teething problems with our first run, but hope you'll be patient as we get into full stride. 

If you have come from Yoshiko's blog you'll have seen what a fabulous design she has shared along with the rest of the group this month we are sharing our versions of a chocolate, candy or sweetie dispenser.  Each designer has done a FREE tutorial for you to use.  I've made my box petite, just 7cm tall,  and have used one of may current favourite colour combinations of Lemon Lime Twist, Smokey Slate, Whisper White and Black.  I've used the Snowflake Sentiements stamp set from the Stampin Up Winter 2017 catalogue and my trusty Stampin' Up! paper trimmer.  

Continue the hop by clicking on the next button and go and see Annette's fabulous design.  

Thanks for joining us and do visit again. 

Thanks Zoe x

Christmas Card Club Challenge - Non Traditional Colours

Stampin' Up! Colourful Seasons for Christmas Craft

The lovely Carol has set our Christmas Card Club challenge this fortnight for a card that uses non traditional colours.  I've been paying with ink, water and salt on glossy card stock to create a funky background and although I've used green it isn't a traditional Christmas shade.  I absolutely love the Lemon Lime Twist from Stampin' Up! that came in in June this year.  It's so much fun to use and coordinates with so many others colours.  I shared my Craft Stamper first card last week using this colour with Berry Burst and Fresh Fig also new colours from Stampin' Up!.   

Today I've teamed the Lemon Lime Twist  with Basic Grey, Smokey Slate, white, black and hints of silver.  The snowflakes are die cut using the Seasonal Layers thin lits dies and I've used re-inkers to drop ink onto a water and salt mix painted over the glossy card stock.  

My sentiment is from an old retired set that fits just nicely onto the classic label punched shape.  A little ombre ribbon and some silver washi tape taken from the Cheers to the Years set and you're almost there.  A finishing touch of bling with traditional rhinestones and also new black rhinestones as let's face it we all know that snowflakes sparkle! 

Remember to visit Carol and the other ladies via the Christmas CC button above to see which colours they've used.  

Best wishes for a great week ahead
