Cutie Pie Mother's Day gift box for JAI #307

What a busy and exciting few days I've had. It started on Friday when I found out that I had received the highest number of votes for the blog highlight that I entered. Thank you to all who voted for me. Stay tuned for the blog hop that I will be participating in as a prize. I was very chuffed and very surprised. On Saturday I attended OnStage at the Gold Coast where Stampin' Up! unveiled the new catalogue. (Contact me if you would like one). So many lovely new products and the 5 new In Colours are simply delicious. You can order from June 1. Yesterday the list of retiring products was released so get in quick to snap up some bargains. It is sad to see some favourite products retire but there are so many new favourites to replace them! Shop online with me anytime.

Over the last few days I have been busy making cards and boxes to sell for Mother's Day. Somehow I have them made a few hours ahead of schedule so I have some time to photograph them to show you some over the next few days. As I was making them I had a few  challenges in mind. Just Add Ink has a great colour challenge this week - one of my go to colour combinations.

I used the colours to create a gift box using the Cutie Pie thinlits and the Botanical Builder Framelits. Photographing 3D items is still something I am still trying to master so bear with me!

I die cut flowers using the Botanical Builder framelits and shaped them using the tips I gave here.

Embossing the white cake top with the Elegant Dots embossing folder added a nice detail. Then it was simply a matter of placing the leaves on, securing a coil of silver metallic thread (wait until you see the new copper version) and placing the flowers on with dimensionals and glue dots.


  1. Your slice of cake is gorgeous, Lou. No calories- even better! The Dijon really pops among the neutrals. Love it. Thanks for sharing with us at Just Add Ink. x

  2. Stunning - I love the little touch of glitter/shimmer too. Chantell JAI
