Star Wish box cu 09397
Today we are taking another look at the Our Daily Bread designs June Release! Such fabulous dies & stamp/die duo sets! Did you order yours yet?
Star Wish Box 09401
For my project, I created a fun surprise box. The Surprise Box die makes it so easy to do & it’s a blast figuring out which dies to use when decorating it. I went with a birthday stars & presents theme. And I may have gone a little over the top w/ the layers. My box is actually very sturdy as I used a very heavy white c/s for the inside & cut another white layer for the outside (I wanted the inside to be as pretty as the outside w/ the embossing) then added all the die cut paper rectangles, stars & presents around the outside.

This is a better picture of the outside & underside of the flaps. The only problem w/ this box, is how to photograph it. So I took a bunch of pics. Star Wish Box closed IMG0317
The balloons, stars & Wish are so sparkly in person! There’s even a little cupcake tucked under the Wish. I will tell you, to make the Pierced Rectangles & plain Rectangle layers on the outside, I did have to do a little resizing to make them smaller. But that’s pretty easy..just be sure to match up the pierced holes when cutting the other end. Star Wish Box top 09403
I also added another long liner to the outside of the back to use as sort of the inside of a card, where I could write a little message. And this all folds flat-ish to fit in a standard A2 or A6 envelope.

Sending Something cu 09365
I’m a little late finishing this..mainly because I already had my Blog Hop Release for ODBD posted yesterday (still time to comment to win 🙂 & didn’t want to throw it off the front page. I combined the Sketch Challenge (SC595) & the Color Challenge (CC585) for my card. The colors are cherry cobbler, wild wasabi & gold. I have a couple of shades of gold in the stripe paper (I’m hoping they didn’t mean metallic). 

Sending Something 09366
For my mostly die cut card, I used one long panel of the Surprise Box die & cut it twice. I did move the die up a tad to shorten the piece in order to fit my card. One full panel was used for the center & I cut the other in half to use on the sides, along w/ a couple of narrow strips of the cherry. Then I added the die cut balloons, presents, bow & Sending part of the greeting. The rest of the greeting was stamped on the little oval item of the sketch. 

Here’s a look at the inside. I used the negative of the Sending die & put back the little inside pieces.

I’ve been combining die cut words w/ greetings for a while & these 2 sets make it so easy. On my first card, I used the You Bless Me So duo set. Don’t you love that smiley face? I thought it would be perfect as the center of a happy little flower. I die cut the white Lavish Layer & used a Pierced Circle to cut out the center. I used the same die on the patterned paper underneath, just for that something extra. After die cutting I large & 2 med Posies, I took the med white one & cut apart the petals to move them out just a tad from behind the polka dot layer.

I added the die cut You & greeting below along w/ a Bitty Butterfly & a couple more flowers in the corner. The You was stacked on top of a thick white layer to give it a little dimension.

Here’s a look at the inside.

My second card features the Sending My Love duo set. Did I mention the greetings are clear sets? Makes it sooooo easy to see where to stamp it. I wanted a fun, festive card and these dies are PERFECT. I made the center white panel to resemble a wrapped package, using the the Bitty Borders as added trim & the Mini Bow to top it off. I also added a small balloon (from the Happy Birthday dies) to go along w/ the larger Balloons & Streamers I used.

I added part of the banner across the upper left corner then added the stamped greeting w/ the Sending die cut above it. Did you also notice these fun, bright papers? These are so festive!
