Photo Post of the stuff from the last few days!

I have been a busy little bunny!  I researched the 'milk carton' box instructions from all across the wonder of the internet.... there's LOADS out there!!!  I put together a dummy run, and found these easier to create than I had first thought....

I handstamped some A4 sheets of card, with the fantastic Inkadinkado Clear Rubber Stamp Set *HEARTS & LOVE* and the large Friendship stamp from Stampin Up....

I made small cards that matched the 'carton' to go with them...

I also used some Glossy Accents on part of the stamped images, so they had a raised and clear glossy effect on them.  I also sprinkled some fine glitter on some of them.

I found that just punching a hole and threading some matching ribbon through ok, but I rather like the look of the bulldog clips (for sturdiness) so today I found some nice coloured ones as well as the standard black ones...in Wilkinsons for just £1!!!

Closer view of the first 3 boxes I made.  I love the Inkadinkado stamp range.  They are clear stamps, and although I have an acrylic block to use them with, I find that the upturned lid of an empty Ferreo Rocher box quite handy too.  Naturally I had to eat all the chocolates before I could use it..... *grin*

Close up details of the tag for the 'For My Love' blue set. I have inked the edges of the tag for a more distressed look, and used 3 globs of glossy accents to finish off the look.

Close up details of the pink and red 'Hugs and Kisses' box.  I have stamped the sentiment at the bottom, then restamped without inking 3 more times above it to get different shades of the ink. I have also used polka dot ribbon this and a small pink peg.  The peg isn't strong enough as has since snapped off, so I will be replacing it with a bulldog clip.

Close up of pink and black 'You & Me' box.  Again I have used Glossy Accents for the dots, and have used my funky scissors to create the scalloped look around the edges.
The pink ink used on this is Pixie Pink from Stampin Up.

A random mini greetings card I made whilst experimenting.  Those of you who are 'in the know' will recognise the dotted heart stamp from Stampin Up, and then the sentiment 'hugs & kisses' from Inkadinkado.  Glossy Accents again are used for the dots, with inking around the edge of the topper for the distressed look I seem to favour at the moment.

 These are close ups of the mini cards that accompany the 'carton' boxes.

I have really enjoyed making these, and from the feedback I have received from friends and family, I think these are going to stay and be a regular craft of mine.

I went to the day hospice today (http://www.justgiving.com/Mathew-Swift-Beardathon) and as they are always looking for craft things to make, I drew up a template for the 'milk carton' boxes. Some of the other patients made some too, with a little help from me with the fiddly sticking bits on it......

I would appreciate feedback on how you think I am doing....... and for the record, the box and card sets are for sale!  Message me at poannie_designs@ovi.com for more details.....

Hope you are all well and have a lovely day!!!!
