Hello and welcome to our first Ink. Stamp. Share Monthly Blog Hop for 2022. We are sharing projects featuring a suite from either of our catalogues. I’m showcasing products from the Sweet Talk Suite which is on Pages 8-10 of the Mini Catalogue. The paper and Gingham Embossing Folder are some of my favourite products in the suite.
In time for Valentine’s Day, I’ve got a cute and simple gift box to share with you. This is a simple standard box and you can present it with or without the lid.
Highland Heather Cardstock 23cm x 16.5cm Score on the long side at 5.5cm, 11cm 16.5cm and 22cm Score on the short side at 11cm
Blushing Bride Cardstock (lid) 9.5cm x 9.5cm Score on all 4 sides at 1.9cm
I added the beautiful Sweet Talk Designer Series Paper to decorate the box. One side has hearts in traditional reds and pinks and also pastel hearts and heart shaped lollipops which are so cute.
Some other sheets of the DSP have stripes and water colour washes which can be used for other occasions.
I embossed the White panel with the Gingham Embossing folder and added a watercolour wash in Blushing Bride, stamping a few Real Red dots to coordinate with my cute little red hearts.
I added a mini tag to the front of the box and decorated it so it was ready for gift-giving.
This box can also be used as a table favour for a place setting. Fill it with some chocolates for a sweet treat.
Next on our hop is Donna Lester. Please follow right through the hop for lots of suite inspiration!

Welcome to my blog and a very happy Mother’s Day to all Mums and care-givers. It is the early hours of Sunday, here in Melbourne. I hope you have a lovely day celebrating, in what is possibly, a very different way this year. Our floral theme for the Joy of Sets blog hop is appropriate as I’m sure many mums will be receiving flowers today
The Peaceful Poppies Elements are the main feature on my card and pillow box. I used the die cut elements which were already coloured as well as the water-colour die cut elements which are embossed images. These were coloured in with Stampin’ Write Markers and blended with a Blender Pen.
The Kraft Pillow Box has been dressed in a similar way to the card using the Stitched Labels Dies. These are retiring and I’m going to miss these pretty lace-edged dies.
You will notice, on the card, that I die cut the label and poppy from one of the Kraft Pillow Boxes. On the circle with the sentiment, I added some Soft Suede stripes in a Stampin’ Write Marker. This suite makes it so easy to create these coordinated projects and the Peaceful Poppies Elements really make it so much quicker.

I used the Gold Mini Pizza Boxes which are in the Wrapped in Plaid suite and embossed it with the Hammered Metal 3D Embossing Folder. In order to emboss all sections of the box, I had to insert it several times in the die cutting machine. Some sections were overlapped as the box was too wide and I added shims on top instead of the top plate.
The card uses a panel of Wrapped in Plaid Designer Series Paper and then adhered a piece of embossed Gold Foil on top. The trees have been stamped in Melon Mambo and I stamped and punched a second set for the Mini Pizza Box at the same time.
I like the pink against the Soft Sea Foam and Shaded Spruce, giving a different colour palette for this paper. Then I cut 2 strips of DSP for the box and wrapped one piece around the bottom, cutting off excess, adding the other piece on the lid of the box and doing the same. Then I wrapped the twine right around.
Wish you had a third hand when tying bows? Use a glue dot to hold the first knot to the box. Then tie another knot to secure and tie your bow. The glue dot stops the twine from slipping around. This also works for ribbon.

Let it Snow Suite
I’ve chosen one of the cute suites which I really love. The Let it Snow Suite (Item #153386) is on Pages 18-21 of the catalogue. This suite has several products in it and includes a very cute Snowman Builder punch, Mini Curvy Keepsakes Box Dies and 2 sets of stamps – Snowman Season and Tiny Keepsakes (Item #150460). The coordinating colours of Blueberry Bushel, Basic Black, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Real Red, Shaded Spruce and Whisper White give it a real wintry feel. I know it’s not your typical Aussie Christmas but somehow I love snowmen at Christmastime. This suite just adds to the Christmas magic with it’s sparkly Designer Series paper and pretty colours.
My card features one of the cute snowmen from the Snowman Season stamp set. Simply stamp and punch out – it’s that easy. I fussy cut a beanie and his shawl is from the Let it Snow Embellishment Kit (Item #150425). This kit comes complete with 60 stitched felt accents in Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, Shaded Spruce and Real Red, 96 enamel shapes, 36 felt snowballs, 1.8m of washi tape – lots of goodies to dress up your snowman and your projects.
Mercury Glass Designer Acetate
The circle is punched out of Coastal Cabana cardstock. On top of that is one of the hidden gems in this catalogue – Mercury Glass Designer Acetate. LOVE IT! You will find this on the bottom right of Page 44. There are 2 designs which have a faux mercury glass finish. One is a speckled finish and the other is a cracked finish and they are stunning.
Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle
The snowflakes and sentiment are from the Itty Bitty Christmas Bundle which includes the Christmas Layers Dies and the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set. For a variety of sentiments you really can’t go past this stamp set. It has you covered for all types of Christmas cards for family, friends, faith-based, fun, gift tags and even new year greetings – 18 stamps in all.
Coordinate this card with this little gift box which is really quick to make and so cute decorated with the Let it Snow DSP. I saw a version of it on Pinterest from Aural Models and adapted the way I made it. It’s a really fun pull out box and t’s got the element of surprise as it opens out in the opposite way to what you would normally expect.
The box is quite easy to make.I embossed the Real Red cardstock with the Winter Knit embossing folder and used Stampin’ Write Markers to create the multi-coloured sentiment.
