Chocolate Orange Christmas Box Santa’s Workshop

Chocolate Orange Christmas box Santa’s Workshop.

Made by Andrea Wardill, Independent Stampinup@ Demonstrator.

Yesterday I was out with my good friend and fellow Stampinup@ Demonstrator Gez from Nigezza Creates having a little coffee and card session. During our journey we popped into Tesco’s where they were selling chocolate Oranges for 75p! yes 75p. I always buy my children a chocolate orange for Christmas, so I had to get some. (If they survive til Christmas without being eaten I will be very surprised). Gez then told me that she had made a box for it for valentines day. Today I have cased (copy and share everything) Gez’s box and added a Christmasy theme with the cute Santa’s Workshop paper and co-ordinating stamps and dies.

The dies from Santa’s Signpost actually cut out the images on the Designer series paper, super cute.

The products used for this box are:-

The DSP on the lid is now retired paper, but it measures 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 for the top and 2 3/4 x 1 1/8

Each of the products are available in my online Stampinup@ store open 24/7.

Signs Of Santa

Signs of Santa Stamp set is so cute. Wether you like the traditional Christmas cards or cute ones StampinUp has got them all in the autumn / winter catalogue.  I have loved playing with the Signs of Santa stamp set and co-ordinating Santa’s workshop designer series paper. The poppy red and white stripped paper used in this project is textured and feels velvety. One of the designs on the paper matches the stamp set so can be cut out using the Santa’s signpost frame lit dies. I do love how StampinUp all comes together.

This is the project I have mad. I was planning for my August class and had been asked to teach the class how to make these box cards. The box cards fold flat to fit into an envelope so easy to post. The basic box cards takes only 4×12 of card stock to make and the decoration can be as flamboyant and big as you like. This one needs a sentiment on the front and I haven’t decided which one just yet. If you are buying in September don’t forget to use the voucher you earned in August.

The Autumn Winter Catalogue is available from the 5th September 2018 till January 4th 2019.

Other box cards I have made include the Foxy Friends stamps and punch, Sweet Storybook and Rooted in Nature.

foxy friends, rooted in nature, sweet storybook.

Christmas in July

Christmas in July, really? While we are basking in the crazy heat (28-32 degrees) it is hard to think about Christmas in July, but when you have a load of Christmas cards and gifts to make it is important to plan early.

Therefore in a challenge that I take part in, though my Stampin’up team and groups we had to CASE a project. To CASE is to copy and share everything, or copy and selectively edit.

Although the card layout Is the same I have changed the DSP to Christmas paper and swapped the flower for a carol singing mouse from the Merry Mouse stamp set. There is a sentiment on the Cherry Cobbler card but it doesn’t really show up on the photo.

 

I copied my card design from Simone Bartrum who is an Australian Stampin’Up demo.

This is Simone’s card:

 

 

The second product I CASEd is from Sally Shaw, Sally’s is made to hold a set of pretty hand made cards using the Varied Vases Stamp Set

 

My Box is following Sally’s tutorial on youtube made wit Cherry Cobbler card stock and covered in a now retired but still pretty Christmas DSP, there is current Christmas DPS available in my on line store
