Another gable box

On my last post I shared the gable box I swapped with my team the WOW paperKRafters on Sunday - at the training afternoon - in reality goss, laughter, swaps, crafting, eating & drinking. This one was a little rushed as my mum was back in hospital & I wanted to visit her - she's going home tomorrow :-)  If you'd like to join us next month or would like to know more do read my FAQs about becoming a demonstrator. We do have a load of FUN!

I thought no point just giving them a swap I'd better demonstrate how to make one for themselves - this was thrown together with the card stock & the stamp sets on my craft desk and I really love it!

Stamp sets: Baroque Motifs, Retro Remix wheel (summer mini)
Ink: So Saffron, More Mustard - these two are "dynamic duos according to the SU! Colour Coach wheel
Paper: So Saffron, More Mustard, Very Vanilla
Punches: Wide oval, large oval, scallop oval
Other: So Saffron striped grosgrain ribbon, dimensionals

I love the grungy look I achieved by dragging the paper in the ink pad. In reality I was running out of time to grab a sponge or a dauber!

These are fabulous Karen. I must have a go at making one...or more :0). Hugs, Di

Thats a great idea dragging the ink pad over your card instead of sponging. It certainly gives it a more rustic look. Like it, thanks Karen!

I don't know why it is that I have only just discovered your blog .. but I just wanted to say that I love your work! These gable boxes are gorgeous and I love the effect that the inkpad has given to the edges.

Karen, how you been? Great I hope, looks like you are keeping busy. Sorry your mom has been back in the hospital though. I really dig the gable boxes, think I am gonna hit up SCS and make some of my own, thanks for the inspiration. Hugs to you, Leslie
