I’m keeping my fingers crossed that this set (which retires with the Occasions Mini Catalog on April 30th), will come back in the 2012-13 Catalog… here’s to hoping!

The set ‘Bordering on Romance’ was featured in these posts (#1, #2 & #3) as projects for my SAB stamp festival.  Get it while you can!  Those of you coming to my Stampers Xpress tonight will be making this!

Apothecary Art Stamp Set matching card and box

This card box is very simple to make from a regular 8 1/2 x 11 inch piece of cardstock (cut to 8 1/2 x 10 inches).  And as promised in my previous post, I have included the downloadable photo step-by-step PDF and the diagram for cutting and scoring.  It also has the set and accessory list. UPDATED: I realized after posting, that I didn’t specify on the diagram in the PDF where to cut.

The coloring technique was achieved with Watercolor Crayons (Brights #119804) and a blender pen (#102845).  The set is the ‘Bordering On Romance’ stamp set (wood #125480, clear #125482) from Stampin’ Up!’s Occasions Mini Catalog.

Of course I guess that I OVERUSE the Sizzix embossing folder ‘Vintage Wallpaper‘… I just stinkin’ love it!  And I can’t get enough of the Framelits dies ‘Labels Collection’ (#125598).  The colors are all from the ‘brights’ collection Melon Mambo, Old Olive & Pacific Point.

This box is so easy to make… I have a trick for getting the end of it embossed and fitting it through the Big Shot, its in the directions.  So, how’d I do? What will you use the box for?  How about Mother’s Day stationery set for the mom who has everything?
