Dream Big Stationery Box

Hi everybody! I can’t even begin to tell you how stoked I am to be a new member of the Dare 2B Artzy design team! A dream come true! Awesome stamps, dies, ink and paper – I’m in my element! Today is my post day on the Dare 2B Artzy blog and I’m happy to share my first DT inspiration project using the Dream Big stamp set, Paradise and Margarita Lime inks, Botanical Breeze paper and Feather die.

I created a fun stationery box that holds a set of eight note cards. You know me… I love my fancy folds and 3-D projects, and this was an absolute blast to make! My inspiration once again came from Splitcoast Stampers (my favorite go-to place for inspiration) and you can find the tutorial HERE.

The box top features an embossed panel with a watercolored feather and some Crystal Drops. Yep, you can watercolor with these awesome inks!

The top comes off and the front folds down to reveal a little ‘desk’ with a pen and pockets for goodies.

I stamped on the desk and then clear embossed over the stamping using a stamp positioner.

The note cards are in the large pocket and I’ve tucked gum and some neon yellow post-it notes in the smaller pockets. Love, love, love!

My hubby had the idea of using tiny magnets on the slim panels on the back. Works great! I have him around for good reason, lol! ;)

Here are shots of the note cards. Four have the stamped sentiment angled upward and four have the sentiment angled downward. They all have a watercolored feather die cut matching the one on the box lid as well as several Crystal Drops.
