3 x 3 x 1″ Stamped and Glazed Box Tutorial

Stampin’ Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles – 3 x 1″ Stamped and Glazed Box Tutorial


Stampin' Up! UK Demonstrator Pootles - 3 x 1 Stamped and Glazed Box Tutorial Stamped Detail


Well happy Monday!  Did you have a good weekend?  What did you do?  Is the weather being nice to you…

I have a slightly different project for you today. Yes, it’s a box build, but it’s more about the decoration than the box itself.

I wanted to create a real focal point to the box lid itself, so decided originally to just pick out bits of the stamped image with crystal effects. However, a mishap with the stuff meant that I had to rapidly change my original plans.

But as they say, there’s no mistakes, only happy accidents!

So what do you think?  A little different, but I really rather like it!

Do enjoy the video, and I hope to see some of your glazed creations too!

    So nice! I’ll have to try this with a butterfly stamp! Have a nice day, Sam!

  2. Crystal effects is wonderful ! I have seen to be used in many ways !!!! Thankks for sharing x

  3. I love Crystal Effects but you must be real careful when you squeeze that bottle, if it feels like it’s plugged, just try squeeze it gently on a piece of scrap paper otherwise, you could end up with a big puddle of stuff on your project.
    I like the way you worked around your mishap Sam, this stamped flowers look lovely, the texture is clearly visible.
    Thank you for sharing.

    Hi Sam, I spent a couple of hours last night colouring in this particular flower with Copic markers – I mainly did it to check out the Copics on the new Thick Whisper White cardstock – it gets a thumbs up from me, I love it, it’s my new all-round favourite cardstock – perfect for boxes, card bases, embossing folders, die cutting, and of course stamping (I am only saying, in case someone is interested in trying it) Right, back to you!?! Love this idea! I love using Crystal Effects for all kinds of things, but I have never tried it with Stampin Up ink – will now, I love the effect it gives, clever you! Fabulous, just love it! Karen x

  6. Love the project! You could have used it as the card and not glued the flower down, your twine would have held it in place.
