Pam Bray Designs: A Girl With Flair

Sharing creative ideas through mixed media, stamps, embossing powder, charms, chipboard, stencils and designer collections

 
Welcome to the September Craft Hoarders Anonymous Blog Hop! You should be coming to my blog from  Debbie’s Blog. 

I created a card box for my first project….
using Graphic 45 Botanical Tea Collection.
Before I get to far into my project…I have to confess that the card box has been made for months and sitting on shelf, all I did was get it down, dust it off and make my cards. Grin….I am a true hoarder at heart. 
I love to fussy cut so I cut up a lot of Graphic 45 Botanical Tea and place my dimensional pieces on the top of my card box making layers with pop dots. Added a bit of string to make it look like the small flags are flying and added a beautiful flower to the top. 
I used Stampendous “I’m Thinking of You” stamp from the Say It Today set for all of my cards. On this card I matted the journal block I stamped with several pieces of pattern paper and card stock…
Placing it on the front of my layers of Botanical Tea pattern paper, added more beautiful pre-made flowers, clear gemstones and more of the fun twine. 
 For my second card I layered blue and brown card stock to my card base prior to adding Botanical Tea pattern paper to the front. Stamp sentiment to front with black ink.
Add a DieNamites Holiday Wreath die cut to the front prior to placing the layered journal block to the front.
 My third card is using the Botanical Tea Collection, stamping the sentiment with black ink and layering journaling pieces and stamps to the top. Add a few pretty pre-made flowers and twine.
Lastly, I placed brown card stock to the card base and embossed the sentiment using white embossing powder. Add Botanical Tea pattern paper to the top, with a layered journal block. Wrap card with twine and tie in bow. Place a layered flags to the front along with fussy cut pieces to the top of card with pop dots. 
Well I hope you enjoyed my Botanical Tea Card Box with cards. 
Hope this encourages you to go through your stash of half made projects and maybe finish one or two of them up.
