Let's Make a Gift Box Set

Well no matter what you do to try to slow it down times a ticking and shortly we'll all need a few gifts to share with a Mother, Sister, Friend, Neighbor or another crafter perhaps.  How about a boxed set of cards?

I made a simple six inch square box with my Martha Stewart Score Board and added a spritzed up Heartfelt Creations flower to the middle (remember I made all those flowers a while back and now they're coming in handy!).

JustRite Stampers always has the best assortment of sentiment based stamps.  I used this one, Bokeh Time, for my set of eight cards today.  I love these stamps!!  I left all the A2 sized cards blank on the inside so they can be personalized for the occasion when the time is right.

I made one card for each sentiment in the set, eight in total and alternated the base cardstock between white and teal.  I sat and played with Lindy's sprays, Distress Inks, Bo Bunny Stencils and some texture paste. I let all that dry real good and then started assembling my cards and stamping the sentiments.

This is such a fun project and I find so often when I buy stamps sets I purchase them because I like a particular sentiment or script within the group.  More often than not I'll use one or two of my favorite stamps and then file them away.  This is the perfect way to challenge yourself to use the entire stamp collection. So go on!  Go find a stamp set and make cards using every single stamp.  I promise you once you see those cards accumulating it will be harder to stop making them than to continue!

This is just a smattering of what I made, come join me on the video and I'll show you each card and the gift box to give you a little inspiration to make your own gift box of love.
