Fun & Fast Flap Card and a Criss Cross Box

These were the other two projects that were done at my stamp camp the other night, the first is a flap card using the Fun & Fast Notes stamp set. If you click on the highlighted words it will take you to the tutorial on Splitcoast and give you step by step directions, but if you would like a larger sized card, I used these measurements: 4 1/4" x 11" and then after using the largest circle on the coluzzle on one end I scored (starting at the rounded end) 2" then 6 3/4". I stamped the tea cup image and used an aqua brush and the ink in the lid of my ink pads to color the image and then went back in and colored with my SU markers to add shadows and depth, then cut the image and Pixie Pink mat with the coluzzle, then used my Nestabililites die and cut out a white scalloped mat and adhered it to the flap of the card. The apricot appeal piece was wheeled using the Fast Flowers wheel and pierced around the edge using the piercing mat and template. The saying was stamped and punched out with the word window punch and the bashful blue ribbon was added.

This criss-cross box was cased from sbrothers, a member from splitcoast. When I saw this box in the gallery I thought it was so cute and very well done, so I decided to use it for camp. I added a tag with a saying using the small oval and word window punches and used cherry M&M's inside a clear cello bag. I found the directions on how to make a criss-cross box on Nichole Heady's blog Capture the Moment she has some fabulous projects on her blog, you really need to check it out if you haven't already.
