Peek-a-Tute Friday - Stationery Box !!

Hello Blogger pals..How you all are doing ?? Shalu here to share a Pictorial with all of you !! This is the second tutorial post of the day & i hope u really enjoyed the previous post by DT Manu !! 
Ohh ..Sorry i forget to mention that from this month on-wards our Team mates will post a pictorial every Friday & hence we named it "Peek-a-Tut Friday" !! Hope you are enjoying The challenges & Tutorials so far & will enjoy all future posts too :)
So now to my Tutorial -

I Made a Stationery Box and Used the most beautiful n versatile stamp "the Damask" Set!! Here you go - 






I Used Peek-a-boo Design's Black Card stocks which is very very sturdy & good for making albums n boxes of all sorts !! Also Used White Textured card Stock for stamping (as a Pattern Paper) Though this one is also very sturdy n having 300 gsm but i loved the textures & its good for stamping too !!The Rose Gold Card Stock from which I Made the Bow N Hearts is just awesome !! Do check out all the Card Stocks & Stamps Here!!


Enjoy the pictorial in which I mentioned all the dimensions but feel free to adjust them as per your needs.
and if you have any query do ask me through comments here ..i would love to answer !! :)

>> Take a 12*12 " Card Stock !! Score all along as per directions in pictures.











>> For Lid dimensions are given. Also see how i created my own pattern paper using Damask Set.



>> Paste all the cut pieces of pattern paper to decorate the box !!


So guys i think i didn't bored you much & you really liked this attempt of Mine ?
Dont go away ...i am sharing a bonus tutorial too ---- yes this full post is picture heavy ..so just relax n watch it !! ;)








Card - 1 : As Holi is near so i thought to share a colorful Holi Card using " Holi Hai " Stamp set from Peek-a-boo Designs India !!
I Used a little bit of masking technique here . Let the pictures say all --






For finishing touch ups I added some colorful sequins which is my latest obsession ;)

Card -2 :  For this card i Used Jennifer McGuire's Over lap Stamping using " It's Plaid Time Stamp" from Peek-a-boo Designs India !! This stamp is also very very versatile & in so much trend!! We can create our own pattern papers with it !! I used Colorbox Pigment Inks for stamping. Firstly choose a point from where you wanna start your stamping ..i choose the top most corner so can reduce the chances of mistakes ;) Then keep on stamping in the same diagonal position with different colored inks.... .& while stamping further, just keep a single thing in mind that we need to overlap the previous stamped strip a little bit & when we do the same ..the two ink will give a very cool n beautiful effect after mixing with each other. 






See the steps --



Added some Heat Embossed Lotus From " Lotus Delight" Stamp Set and the Sentiment from Latest released Mini Stamp " Pixie Dust " .For final touch up added heart shaped stones from my stash !! See how colorful n classic it is looking !!

Card - 3 : Haww...finally the last one :p For this Card I again used " It's Plaid Time Stamp" from Peek-a-boo Designs India to build my background..this time i used solid wide strip as well diagonal strips stamps to create this beautiful n very colorful background with Pigment inks !!




 Have a look at the steps --



To complete the card i used " Be Good Mini Stamp Set " .Added some paper flowers and tiny heart shaped stones to finish it up !! Keep it as much simple as i could and i really loved the whole process of background building !!

I hope You Enjoyed this whole post & Please do not forget to participate in this Month's Challenge - Rainbow With Cloud : Create a Set !!
