Creating an Alternate Project with Dashing Along DSP

When I look at our range of Designer Series Paper, I see many different occasions that each one can be used for. The advantage of using double sided paper is the option of 2 sides and if 1 side relates to a particular season or suite, usually the other side is fairly general.

Today’s project uses the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper This is a promotional paper which can be earned free during the month of September with party sales or purchases of $400 prior to shipping. I have used both sides of one sheet to decorate this mini pizza box.

To add colour to the entire box I sprayed it using an aqua painter which was filled with water and a few drops of Daffodil Delight ink refill. I did this before I put the box together. Leave it to dry and then fold all the score lines. The box folds in easily.

The flower was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and then coloured it in with Daffodil Delight Stampin’ Blends. I’ve layered it on a piece of Tea Room DSP and the new Black Foil from the Holiday catalogue. This has been embossed with the Leaf embossing folder. The centre of the flower was coloured with the Light Pumpkin Pie Stampin’ Blend and then topped with a Tinted Faceted Button. As the button is transparent, I really wanted the colour to show. When you add the colour to the centre of the flower it makes the colour of the button stand out.

The leaves were punched out using the Lemon Builder punch on the side of the DSP which has the stars on it.

Hope this project inspires you to try out new ways with your Designer Series Paper.

Step-it-Up Sunday #19 Decorate a Mini Pizza Box

Hi Stampers,

Thank you for stopping by Stamping Flair today. Trust you have had a great week. Have you been able to get any crafting done? I know how hard it is to find the time between working, housework, being a mum and all the other ‘stuff’ we have to do but isn’t it great when we just get a moment to relax and create? I find it so relaxing. I’m on 2 weeks holidays so I hope to get a bit more crafting done and get a few sleep ins too!

For today’s Step-it-Up Sunday, I wanted to create something different so I chose the Mini PIzza Box. They are pre cut, food safe boxes which just need to be folded and take less than a minute to assemble. These are so cute and there are so many ways in which you can decorate them whether it be by stamping, spritzing, covering with DSP – many options. 

I was inspired by this colour combination. 

Basic

Use the Artisan Textures stamp to cover the sides of the pizza box in Mango Melody. Apart from being a lovely texture stamp, this stamp also easily and quickly adds background colour. Then attach a 3 1/4” piece of Tropical Escape DSP to the top.

Intermediate

Step-up to the next level by stamping the border with the stripe stamp. Stamp over the Designer Series Paper for added interest. To create the layered look for the sentiment, stamp it on the Tropical Escape DSP and punch out. Then punch another piece from Granny Apple Green cardstock and cut it in half. Layer this behind the sentiment and cut off any part that is overhanging.Stampin’ Up, SU, Stamping Flair, Rochelle Laird-Smith, Mini Pizza Box, Step-it-Up SundayAdd these for Intermediate Card

 

Advanced

Stampin’ Up, SU, Stamping Flair, Rochelle Laird-Smith, Mini Pizza Box, Step-it-Up SundayYou can create an extra special gift box with the Advanced step-up. Add a strip of Basic Black cardstock to the Berry Burst panel. Stamp and heat emboss the flowers from the Falling Flowers stamp set. Watercolour them using an Aqua painter and a Berry Burst ink refill and once dry, die cut them.  Add some die cut leaves from the Tropical Thinlits dies and arrange with the punched out leaves. I have cut some apart to make them fit in better.
