Altered Lunch Tins

This afternoon my friend Judy and I got together - as we try to do each week - to do some stamping and papercrafts. This afternoon's project was an altered lunch tin.

This is Judy's tin - very classy I think. A couple of weeks ago we had done a One Sheet Wonder using the Fifth Avenue Floral Stamp set. Judy had not used her 8 1/2 x 11 sheet yet and decided that she would use that for the upper half of her lunch tin. She used Urban Oasis DSP for the bottom section. I love it. The flowers were made using the Simple Flower Embosslit (exclusive to Stampin' Up) and the leaves using the Little Leaves sizzlit (also exclusive to Stampin' Up). Rhinestone Brads in the centres of the flower and a bit of the gorgeous grosgrain was all that was needed.


Card Stock - Whisper White, Baja Breeze, Old Olive, Urban Oasis DSP

Ribbon - Old Olive 5/8" grosgrain

Other - Rhinestone Brads, Simple Flower Embosslit, Little Leaves Sizzlit


I had decided to use Raspberry Tart DSP and I chose one of the bolder designs from the pack. This gave me license to really embellish my tin. I teamed it up with Rose Red cardstock, felt flowers from Flower Fusion and Flower Fusion II and leaves cut with the simple leaves sizzlit. Although a lot busier than the clean lines of Judy's tin, I love this one too! I cut the letters using a cuttlebug alphabet die set.


Card Stock - Rose Red, Cameo Coral, Whisper White, Old Olive, Raspberry Tart DSP
