Stampin Sunday Blog Hop - True Gentlman

Hello and welcome 😊

I am here today with the Stamping Sunday Blog Hop hosted by Sara Levin.
Our theme today is The True Gentleman suite from the Occasions catalogue. This classy collection can be found on pages 44 and 45 of the catalogue.

You are currently here with Kim Oliver - K.OCreations Cards and I have a full list of blog participants towards the end of this post.

Here are my projects using True Gentleman suite.

Celebrate In Style

I have kept the colour scheme quite simple for this design as I wanted to use Gold Embossing as highlights.
With a combination of repeat stamping (background) and e small square of the True Gentleman DSP I managed to create a good base to work with.
The card stock with the repeat stamping was wiped around the edge with versamark ink and then lightly dusted with gold embossing powder and heated to melt. I repeated this process until I was happy with the effect. I then wiped Night of Navy ink over the  gold embossing to add an aged effect.

Treat Box

I have created a matching treat box using a matching square of the True Gentleman DSP.
This gorgeous little box is perfect for the DAD that has everything but you still like to give him little treats. The size I created fits a Ferraro chocoalte nicely. You can make this box large (as your square DSP allows) or as small as you like.
Here is a template that is readily available online for you to convert to any size square you desire.
