I still (heart) Hardwood

It’s been almost exactly one year since I first posted my Hardwood paper and ink combinations chart. Since then I’ve had many lovely comments and I’m so pleased it has been a great reference tool for so many people. With the release of another ‘wood’ colour in Tip Top Taupe, I thought I’d add another row to the chart so that it’s even more helpful in the two years while Tip Top Taupe is an In Color.

So without further ado, here is the new and improved, updated Hardwood colour chart. Enjoy!

New & improved, UPDATED for Stampin' Up!'s TIP TOP TAUPE, Hardwood colour reference chart from www.thepapercaper.com.auNow I couldn’t go and publish a blog post without a new project right? He-aaaaargh’s a little something I whipped up for the occasion.

Treasure Chest celebrating the improved and updated for Tip Top Taupe, Hardwood colour reference chart from www.thepapercaper.com.au. Stampin' Up! Supplies: Kraft 12"x12", Tag a Bag gift boxes, Hardwood background stamp, Tip Top Taupe ink...

Cute right? Can’t you see it filled with treasure as a favour box at a pirate party? To recreate this project, take a Tag a Bag gift box and alter the size following this video tutorial from Stampin’ Up!. I cut mine down to 3 1/2″ in length. Stamp your box with the Hardwood background stamp in your choice of ink. I used Tip Top Taupe because this post is all about that brand, spankin’ new colour. Stamp a piece of kraft 12″x12″ with matching ink and score along the board lines so that the lid will curve. Score both sides of the lid and cut notches so that you can attach 2 x 2 1/4″ semi circles, for each of the lid sides. Adhere to the back of the chest. Decorate with strapping, locks and hinges. Fill with treasure!
