Case It Wednesday - Positive Thoughts Pizza Box

Hello there friends! Are you ready for a fabulous Case It Wednesday (AND a sneak peek at an upcoming NEW coordination product as well)?

This week, I'm focused on one of Stampin' Up BRAND NEW stamp sets called "Positive Thoughts". It's a very sweet and soft feeling set that makes me think of a fabulous vintage collage.
Beautiful isn't it?

The project I CASE'd was so much fun to do and it's just as cute as it can be! You'll find it on page 23 of the 2020 Spring Mini Catalog (upper right hand corner).

It was so exciting to see the pink pizza box and I wanted to share how to create it.  Stampin' Up carries White and Gold, but no other colors.  However, we can make a pizza box in any color we choose by simply adding a few drops of ink refill and some alcohol to one of our little Stampin' Spritzers!

I LOVE LOVE LOOOOOOOOVE this technique, and you will too!  Look at how beautiful that (once white) pizza box is! Imagine making birthday party or anniversary favors and making the boxes to coordinate with the celebration colors.

It's super easy to do! Just lay out a piece of newspaper to protect your work surface, lay the Pizza Box out with the matte side up, spritz the color all over the box so it's coated evenly, and then let it dry.  If you're impatient like me, you can use your heat tool to dry it faster.

What can I say, I wanna keep working NOW!!! LOL.

I used my sponge daubers to get the two tone effect on the flower and feather.  Just daub a little Saffron in the middle and then daub the Rococo Rose all around the edges.  I went back over the middle with the Saffron, just to make sure there were no bare spots. I love the effect!

Now, I mentioned that there would be a SNEAK PEEK of an upcoming coordinations product didn't I?

I'm excited to share that the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set is going to have it's own set of dies too!!


They'll be available on February 4th, so be on the lookout!! That's just a few short days away.  GAAAAH!!!!  There are FOUR other die sets coming along with them too!!  OH MY GOODNESS!!!! You're gonna FLIP!! They're amazing!

Here's the sneak peek of the Positive Thoughts dies:

Not only is there a die to cut out the stamped feather, but there's also a bigger one that embosses AND cuts another out! YAYAYA!!! AND, that rectangle frame up there? Its got a BEAUTIFUL lacy type pattern around the frame. Not quite stitching, not quite filigree.  You'll have to see for yourself!

Ok, once I stamped and cut the flower and feather, I stamped the floral cluster in Crumb Cake on a piece of 2 7/8" x 2 7/8" Whisper White Cardstock.  I also stamped off and added a butterfly in Mint Macaron, over the top of the cluster.  I added a strip of Rococo Rose Cardstock (3/4" x 2 7/8") about half an inch up from the bottom of the Whisper White piece. Then, I attached the feather with snail and the flower overlapping with dimensionals.  I tied a length of Mint Macaron ribbon around the box and into a bow.  The last thing was to stamp the sentiment on a piece of 1" x 2 7/8" Whisper White cardstock, and attach it to the top of the box using Stampin' Dimensionals.  Use a few of those brand new Champagne Rhinestones to finish it off nicely.

This was such a fun project.  Now I'll need to make a set of 3x3" matching cards & envelopes for it. 
Would you like to have this beautiful little box of notecards?  Leave a comment below telling me what your favorite new Mini Catalog product is.  I'll do a random drawing for someone to win the box! :-D

Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends! Have a fantastic evening!

Until Next Time,
Happy Crafting!
