Mixed Medallions Gift Box

Hello Friends!  Today I have a fun little gift box idea that was inspired by the Mixed Medallions Card kit. Yep, I said card kit.

The Mixed Medallions Card Kit is one of this year’s Sale-a-bration items that caught my eye right away. The kit comes with 8 trifold cards. There are two different card designs so you get 4 card bases for each design. I am always looking for fun things to do with kits and as soon as I saw the tri-fold design I knew exactly what I wanted to make…a Gift Box.

By adding a few simple score lines and a few cuts to the card bases, you can easily create an adorable little gift box!

The gift box can be used to package up some small items, candy and even your handmade cards. I was excited to learn that the gift box holds 4-5 standard cards (5-1/2 x 4-1/4 inch size) and envelopes. How cool is that? So you can make a few gift boxes and a make a few cards with this kit, package them up and give them away as a gift. Or make all of the cards into gift boxes and use them to package up your own handmade cards.

It’s super fun and simple! Check out the video tutorial for more info >>> https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C-EoWZsZChc

 

Bubbles & Fizz

Sale-A-Bration is in full swing and it’s been so fun to play around with all of these fabulous new products!  Today I want to share a few fun projects created with the Bubble Over Bundle and the fun new Sale-A-Bration paper called Bubbles and Fizz.  This is really an adorable suite of products! It is so versatile! You can create cards for a variety of different occasions so let’s take a look!

Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I decided to make a fun little love themed card for the hubby. The card showcases the new Bubbles & Fizz Designer Series Paper (DSP) which is one of the FREE Sale-A-Bration items that you can choose! The paper is so adorable and it coordinates with the Bubble Over stamp set and framelits. So that means that I could use the framelits to cut out the bottles (I didn’t have to cut them out but hand).  How cool is that? The framelits work with the designer paper and with the bottle stamps in the set!  To create this card, start with whisper white cardstock for the base of the card.  Cut a 3 x 5-1/2 inch piece of the heart patterned paper from the Bubbles & Fizz DSP pack and a 3-1/4 x 5-1/2 inch piece of Basic Gray cardstock. Adhere the two pieces together and then adhere them to your card front. Add a doily and some of the bottles from the DSP. Then embellish with a little love sentiment a a heart.

This card was also created with the Bubbles & Fizz DSP. For this one, I started with a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock for the base of the card. Then I cut a few different patterns of the DSP to create the background on the card. The Lemon Lime Twist pattern is cut to 3-3/4 x 5 inches and the bottle pattern is cut to 3 x 4-1/2 inches. I embellished the card with one of the bottles and a sentiment cut from the Celebrate You thinlits. These fun thinlits are also a free sale-a-bration item that you can choose with a qualifying order.

I am just having a blast with these new products!  I hope that you enjoyed the little projects I shared with you today!

Hey Chick

Hello Stampin’ Friends! Today I want to share a fun little project created with the “Hey Chick” Sale-a-bration stamp. This is the most popular Sale-a-bration stamp set!  Just an FYI…there are less than 2 weeks left of Sale-a-bration so be sure to take advantage of all of the amazing products and deals!

I decided to make it a little vintage style card so I hope you enjoy it! To make this card, start with a piece of Blushing Bride cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of Crumb Cake cardstock. Randomly stamp some of the images from the Timeless Texture stamp set around the outside of the Crumb Cake cardstock using Crumb Cake ink.  Stamp the bushy haired chick in the open spaces on the cardstock. Stamp the chick on a scrap piece of Very Vanilla cardstock, cut it out with one of the oval framelits and sponge it with a bit of Crumb Cake ink. Run a piece of Very Vanilla Trim across the center of the Crumb Cake cardstock and secure the entire piece to the front of the card. Cut out a scalloped oval framelit using Blushing Bride cardstock. Adhere the two ovals together and secure to the middle of the Crumb Cake cardstock. Cut a piece of Very Vanilla Trim and tie it in a knot, trim the ends and adhere to the card with a glue dot.   For the finishing touch, stamp a sentiment on a 1/2 inch piece of Blushing Bride cardstock, trim the end into a little banner and adhere it to the card as shown. Enjoy!

Inside the Lines DSP

Hello Stampin Friends! Can you believe it is the last month of Stampin’ Up’s Sale-A-Bration?  Wow, time flies when you are having fun!  And this year’s Sale-A-Bration products have been a lot of fun!  So much fun that they are flying off the shelves!  They have already sold out of several items so if there is something on your wish list, you need to get it really soon!  And the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper has now entered the “low inventory” status. Yikes!  So I thought I better share this fun little card idea with you in case you wanted to get your hands on some of this fun paper!

To make this card, start with a piece of Whisper White cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/2 x 2 inch piece of one of your favorite patterned papers. I happen to have some fun yellow polka dot paper that worked great with this card! Cut a 1-1/2 x 4 inch piece of the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper (the freebies Sale-A-Bration product). Color in the various images on the paper using some watercolor pencils and a blender pen. If you haven’t used a blender pen, it’s super simple. The pen comes prefilled with a solution designed to help you “blend” colors. Simply run the brush tip of the pen across the areas you colored with the watercolor pencils. It will help smooth out the lines and blend the color. Super fun! Next, cut a 1-3/4 x 4-1/4 inch piece of Old Olive cardstock; adhere the colored DSP to the old olive cardstock. Tuck a piece of a doily under the right side of the cardstock and adhere to the card as shown.  For the finishing touch, stamp a little sentiment on the card. Enjoy!

Inside the Lines ~ Dragonfly Dreams

Hello Stampin’ Friends!  It’s the start of the NEW Stampin’ Up! Occasions catalog and Sale-a-bration!  Wahoo!  My favorite time of year!  Today I wanted to share a little project that I created for my new catalog open house!  The project showcases the Dragonfly Dreams bundle of products and the Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper (DSP) from the Sale-a-bration catalog.  I have to admit that I wasn’t really fond of the DSP when I first saw it as I thought “Wow, it will take a long time to color all of those images!” But then I found a really quick and fun way to use that DSP.  Let’s take a closer look.

To make this card, start with a piece of whisper white cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 5-1/4 x 4 inch piece of the flowery pattern from the Inside the Lines DSP. Note: This DSP is FREE with a $50 purchase during Sale-a-bration!

Grab some sponges and the following ink colors:  Blushing Bride, So Saffron and Mint Macaron. Sponge each of the colors across the DSP as shown. Stamp the dragonfly image on a scrap piece of white cardstock, using blushing bride ink, then cut it out with the coordinating framelit. Cut a detailed dragonfly, using the coordinating framelit, out of a piece of vellum. Adhere the body of the vellum dragonfly to the blushing bride one with a few glue dots. Adhere a delicate white doily to the center of the DSP. Adhere the dragonfly with a few stampin’ dimensionals.  For the finishing touch, add a little sentiment banner and embellish with pearls. Enjoy!

Avant Garden

Good Morning Stampin’ Friends!  I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas weekend with family and friends! The holidays are always my favorite time of year!  This holiday season is special to me as it’s the first time in 20+ years that I have actually been able to have the entire week off of work! And, of course, I plan do to a bit of stampin’ and craftin’ this week! 🙂  So today I have a pretty little project I put together with one of the new Sale-a-bration stamp sets!

Yep, this is a sneak peek for you as Sale-a-bration doesn’t start until January 4, 2017! But I just had to start sharing some of the fun new products that are coming out! And this one of the stamp sets that you can earn for FREE!  Remember, Sale-a-bration is Stampin’ Up!’s biggest sale of the year!  For every $50 you spend on Stampin’ Up! products, you get to choose a Sale-a-bration catalog item for FREE…and of course, I chose this stamp set as one of my FREE items!  In case you are wondering how I ended up with a new stamp set….well…One of the best things about being a demonstrator is that I get to order some fun new catalog items about a month before the new catalog goes live! 🙂

To make this card, start with a piece of whisper white cardstock for the base of your card. Cut a 3-1/4 x 3-1/4 inch piece of Mint Macaron and a 3 x 3 inch piece of whisper white cardstock.  Lay the 3 x 3 inch piece of white cardstock on the white card base front. Tip: Put a little adhesive on the back of the 3 x 3 inch piece so it holds it onto the card front as you will be stamping over this layer so you don’t want it to move on you.  Randomly stamp the different images in the Avant Garden stamp set across the card and the 3 x 3 inch layer.  I used the following ink colors:  Pink Pirouette, So Saffron, Tip Top Taupe and Mint Macaron.  Once you have the desired design, remove the 3 x 3 inch piece of white cardstock (with the stamped images on it) and adhere it to the 3-1/4 x 3-1/4 inch piece of Mint Macaron cardstock.  Then adhere the matted piece onto your card but be sure to line up the images.  For the finishing touch, embellish with a few pearls! Enjoy!
