Day 3 Sneeky Peeks - The Cats Pajamas

Happy Wednesday everyone!

Today is day 3 of the Sneeky Peeks for The Cat's Pajamas Stamps.  Have you had a chance to check out the last 2 days? If not, check them out here.

Today I am sharing with you an altered box and matching card using the new set called Patterned Petal.  There are so many ideas of how this set can be used and I decided on making this box.

This box I had for a while sitting around my stash of alterables and thought it would make for a fun box with this set.  I used Basic Grey's collection of Sultry for the papers used and inks from Memento.  The window in the center was made as a "shaker" type having some rhinestones in it.  Using paper from the collection and a sentiment from the set, I created the center window. The top was decorated using the stamps and coordinating die set to decorate around.  The flourish is a beautiful large one that has lots of possibilities, but I decided to break it up a bit for a different look.  The center of the flowers are popped up and popped up around the frame and rhinestone flourish.  To complete it, sequins and larger rhinestones were added.

A side view:

The legs for the box were made using some repurposed wooden thread spools that I hot glued to the bottom.  The sides were decorated using some pleated ribbon to be attached all around and large rhinstones added to each corner.

The inside:

I kept the inside pretty simple so it can be used for various things and not have the opportunity to have whatever is placed inside get ruined.  I stamped anotherh sentiment from the set on the inside lid and added a small ribbon to act as the handle to open the box and a button for another element.

The card I made was to mimic a bit of this box having the same window center look.

The window panel was created using some Spellbinder dies and attaching some patterned paper with a sentiment stamped directly onto that before popping it up over the pattered paper panel.  Again, cutting up the flourish die cut out, a different look was created, while the flowers were popped up on top.  I added some sparkle with my Wink Of Stella pen for some added shine on top of the rhinestones added throughout.  Here is a closer look:

I hope you enjoyed todays peek and thank you for stopping by.  Don't forget to check out the other fabulous designs from the Cat Pack here! Have a great day!
