Remarkable You!

One of my favorite things to come out of this year’s Occasions catalog is the slim note cards and envelopes.  Sometimes it’s nice to have a quick little note that you can send to someone just to let them know you are thinking of them.  A set of 4 decorated and put into a cute box makes a great gift too!  Creating this boxed set also gave me the opportunity to play with the Remarkable You stamp set – I just love coloring in the flowers and leaves, so many possibilities!   So I thought I would put together some quick instructions to show you how I made them.

The box is made using the die from Lots to Love Box Framelits Dies (145653).  You will need to cut two pieces of Whisper White cardstock (100730).  I then stamped the magnolia and the sentiment from Remarkable You Stamp Set (139894) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink (132708) and colored the floral image using the Pink Pirouette Stampin’ Blends (144604) using both the dark and the light markers.   I then gave it the old splatter treatment using a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker (100082).  Then it was time to adhere them together with Fast Fuse (129026).  There are lots of great YouTube videos that show how to put it together if you need help.

I grabbed four of the Whisper White Narrow Note Cards & Envelopes (145583) and stamped each with an image from the Remarkable You stamp set (info listed above) using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.  Each image is colored using Prismacolor Colored Pencils because the Stampin’ Blends do tend to bleed through to the back.  This gave a nice softness to the floral images.  I tucked the cards with their matching envelopes into the box and that as they say was that!

Such an easy project, especially if you like coloring!  I hope you will give it a try.  Let me know if you have any questions at all.  You can purchase the products by clicking on the Shop Now button in the upper right corner, or simply click here if you are on your mobile device.
