Thanks Gift Set

Welcome back! I am sad to say that my spring break has come and gone. I can't complain though, I made it very productive, and I feel like I got many "to do" items off my list. I even got to go to Indian Rocks Beach, and Sarasota!
On to my cards. I enjoy creating gift sets for different occasions. I am particularly proud of this set, because it uses two new techniques that I learned recently, and I can say (with confidence) that it is absolutely unique from other cards! Take a look:

 Card #1: Spiced Marmalade and Fossilized Amber Oxide Inks
 Card #2: Broken China and Peacock Feather Oxide Inks
 Card #3: Vintage Photo and Walnut Stain Oxide Inks
 Card #4: Peeled Paint and Cracked Pistachio
 Card #5: Faded Jeans and Iced Spruce Oxide Inks
 Card #6: Fired Brink and Worn Lipstick Oxide Inks

The box I made out of heavy watercolor Paper, and covered it with SU! Patterned paper. The box holds all 6 cards and then ties closed. Each card was matted with with cardstock and matched with cardstock from Stampin' Up! The Stamp is Whumsy Daisy from Endless Creations.

I love when a look I am going for works beautifully! I cannot say these techniques are my own, I got them from Jennifer McGuire. See below for her awesome blog posts and even detailed videos. She can explain so much better then I can!
