Baroque Box

This time I’m sharing with you my favourite colour combination. I just adore Chocolate Chip and Soft Sky. Add a touch of white (and some of the Pretties Kit) and it just looks so elegant.


I made this box for a friend who wanted a $10 secret santa gift. I found this tin at a scholastic book sale of all places, so it was a one off find. I was so excited about them, when I got home I had to check if they fit a C6 card in them and was jumping up and down when they did.

These cards were made with the same colour combination of Soft Sky and Choc Chip. I am so sad that soft sky will be retiring at the end of March.



The flower on this one is from the pretties kit. I dampened the flower with a little water and then put some chocolate chip ink on it and left the ink to spread and dry.

For the beautiful Baroque Motif’s swirl, I first inked up in soft sky and Versamark, then stamped and embossed. I then used my stamp-a-ma-jig to place the stamp slightly off the original image and stamped in choc chip, to create a shadow effect.

This is how I created this card with its soft sky flowers. The chocolate chip dots are some left over 1/8″ circles that I was going to throw in the bin, very carefully glued on.



This card is similar to  the top of the box. It does look so much better in real life. I took a white piece of card and then sponged on some soft sky. I didn’t make it even, just blotches over the card. Then I sponged on some Choc Chip again in blotches. The swirl was stamped in Choc Chip from either corner of the card. Just a really simple card.

Well I hope the lady enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it.

Happy Stamping!!
