September SOTM Blog Hop!!

WELCOME to our September Stamp of the Month blog hop featuring this month's new SOTM - "Limited Edition" S1109!
If you've just joined me from Gina's blog,
then you are on the right path!
First, I'm sharing a 4.5" square card that features the Typeset papers X7139B and the lace zip strip from Typeset. I used the the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge to cut four different parts of this card (Butterfly1 and Butterfly 1 layer are cut at 1.5", Rectangle 1 cut at 2", and Rectangle 2 cut at 2.5"). Colors are Cocoa, Colonial White, Creme Brulee, and Juniper. This little card also fits perfectly in the "Petal Box" (below)!
This "Petal Box" is cut from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge (Bamboo cardstock cut at 11"). This box also features the Typeset papers X7139B and is the perfect size to also fit the five 4.5" square cards that are the "bonus project" for the Typeset WOTG that is shown on page 19 of the Idea Book! Remember, you can
click on any of my photos to see them up close!!
Here is another view of the "Petal Box" (above) so you can see that to get to the box to open it, you simply slide the "belly band" off the top/bottom of the box. The measurements for the "belly band" are one strip of b&t cut to 2"x12" and another cut to 1"x12", then layer and adhere the 1" strip of top of the other, and wrap around the box. Use your bone folder tool to crease the belly band where it will need to bend to wrap around the edges of the box. The ends of the belly band should overlap each other by about a half inch and this is where you adhere it together. Allow the seam where you adhered it together to show on the front of the box so you can cover the seam when you add the stamped tag to the front of it.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing my artwork! Now you can continue on with the rest of this blog hop and see more creative ways to use this "Limited Edition" stamp set by visiting Wanda's blog next! Enjoy!!
