ICS – Beautiful Bundles

Howdy!

It’s time for the Inspire, Create, & Share Blog Hop! It’s always fun to see what these talented ladies are up to! This month we are showcasing the new Bundles in the Annual Catalog. I really like how Stampin’ Up! has organized them and put them up front to find right away! Have you seen that?! Just love it!

Let’s get started! I chose the Daisy Lane Bundle to showcase this month. I paired it with a few other parts of different stamp sets since I mainly used the daisy stamps and the daisy punches to create this Birthday Pop Up box card for a class that a customer requested for her and a couple friends. She neglected to tell me they were newbies and had never crafted, not even made a card before. Wowza! What a project to introduce them to card making! 😮

Here is what they made…

and here are the sides…

I love how fresh and bright it turned out! This is my 3rd pop-up box card and I think there will be many more!

The supplies are listed below and if you would like a PDF of the instructions, please comment below and I will get it to you! Remember to check out the supplies that I used below!

Now you can hop on over to Terri Takashige and see what wonderful Bundle she chose to showcase today! Have fun hopping!

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop A Little Smile

54006210_10219309231906317_8038300571733590016_o

Howdy!

It is that time again…Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop…where we get to show you the alternates we made from this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit! And this month’s kit is truly Ah-mazing!

It is called A Little Smile for a reason…we can hand out the sweetest cards for any occasion…with tips at a restaurant, when you see a sales person stressed out, a friend needing a pick me up…whenever it seems like the right time to brighten someone else’s day! Trust me, it brings a smile to your face as well!

1561487125191.jpg

AND, it came with this little case to carry the cards in so that they don’t get destroyed in your purse!

1561487471516.jpg

So, that is what came in the kit, I used the stamps, ink, and embellishments to decorate one of Stampin’ Up!’s mini pizza boxes. I hadn’t used any of them yet and wanted to make something 3D for a change of pace. With it being summer, the beachy theme was perfect for a little treat box! I added some other ink colors to this as well…it needed a pop of color for those coral and starfish stamps! 🙂

1561486163040.jpg

The sparkly sand dollar is my favorite embellishment in this kit! There are also some sparkly starfish that are pretty, but if they were in a more realistic color, then they would have also been a favorite. Still using them, of course, just loving the sand dollars the most!

I also decorated the sides of the box because, well, why not?! Love the Calypso Coral for the coral! WOW, such a perfect pop of color! I also used the Sahara Sand for the sand dollars, but stamped them off before putting them on the box! That helped make them lighter and closer to realistic. Don’t ask me why I was hung up on realistic with this kit…it’s just one of my idiosyncrasies, I guess. 😛

1561486241663.jpg

I have to say, I am pretty pleased with the outcome and may have to make a few more of these boxes. Then I need to bake and put treats in them…hahaha, just kidding, chocolate will be way easier since baking is not a favorite past time of mine…cooking, yes, baking, not really. I’ll let my son do the baking. 😉

Below are the supplies I used and the link to my online store. Plus info on next month’s Paper Pumpkin kit…another one you Don’t want to miss!!

Next up is Darla Roberts, my friend and SU leader! Enjoy her creation and the rest of the hop!

Paper Pumpkin April Alternate

Howdy!

Yes, it has been quite awhile since I have been on here and I have missed a few blog hops as well. I am sure you will all agree that life sometimes gets in the way of things we would rather be doing to do the things we need to be doing! I won’t bore you with the details…just know that I haven’t forgotten my commitment to helping you get your creative juices flowing! I just got bogged down for a bit with life matters.

I’m back and staying on track! I figured I should show you my Paper Pumpkin Alternate for our Club’s April kit before May’s Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop goes live tomorrow.

I really, really liked this Distinktive stamp set and so did my ladies!! What an amazing flower! The card I made was inspired from a shirt that I own! It’s a Lularoe shirt and I got a compliment from Dr. Andy about it. All of a sudden, I knew I wanted to use it to make a card with the new kit! How funny is that?

MVIMG_20190527_230432.jpg

So, I did!

1559016368765.jpg

I used a black card base, stamped on Whisper White with Cherry Cobbler and then cut the cardstock into strips. When you lay down the strips, start at the top, then bottom and work your way in. It’s not as easy as one might think. Spacing is tricky.

I fussy cut the leaves after stamping them with Mint Macaron. I also fussy cut the flower. I added a Pearlized Doilie then layered the flower and leaves, added a knot of Cherry Cobbler Double Stitched ribbon to one of the extra tags that I stamped Thank you on. Then, using dimensionals on the back of the tag I laid it on the side of the flower and it was finished.

Simple-ish, yet satisfying. I think it is also kind of striking, if I do say so myself! The ladies at my Paper Pumpkin Club loved it and that is what counts!

Inside, I ‘stamped off’ on my scratch paper which gave the ink a softer hue:

1559016432968.jpg

I also taught them to make envelopes with the Envelope Punch Board! Such an amazing tool!

Envelope Punch Board

We embellished our envelopes with the stamps

And then ran them through the Big Shot with embossing folders! So, even though we only use copy paper to make our envelopes, they are gorgeous and fun and bring joy to our card recipients!

Oh, and yes, I use copy paper for envelopes. What do people do with envelopes? Save them? Why, No. They rip them up and throw them away. Copy paper works perfectly and it’s much cheaper than fancy envelopes. Yes, there are times when I order the special ones, but for day-to-day envelopes, copy paper is my go to paper!

Thank you for hanging in there with me! Also for reading and taking this crafting journey with me! It’s nice to have you along! Enjoy your Stampin’, Scrappin’, and Craftin’ journey and feel free to share and CASE with me! I love to see what others create!

Blessings, June

GSF – The Neutrals

21230900_10155476021810479_6509381660004074956_n

Howdy!

It’s the first Friday of the month, so that means the amazing Demos of the Global Stamping Friends are having another hop! This month we are showcasing The Neutrals.

What are the Neutrals you ask? The Neutrals are, in order of appearance, Basic Gray, Crumb Cake, Early Espresso, Gray Granite, Merry Merlot, Mossy Meadow, Night of Navy, Sahara Sand, Smoky Slate, and Soft Suede.

neutrals assorted ink pads

These are some very useful colors and most can be used in combination with any of the other color families that Stampin’ Up! has to offer! 

The stamp set I used is Geared Up Garage. Yes! I really do love this stamp set and framelits…A LOT! If you have any doubts, or need other ideas on how to use it, you can check out the other posts here, here, here, and here! 😉 It’s just a perfect set for the guys in my life! 

Here is my newest card creation:

Then on the inside, it looks like this. The top flap of the card was trimmed off a bit so that the smudge and navy line were part of the inside, too.

The materials used for this card are:

  • Cardz 4 Guys – #216 Let’s Get Messy
  • The design for this card actually came from a new Challenge site I found…Freshly Made Sketches.

    However, since I still have not learned to pay closer attention to closing dates of sketches, I missed out on this one because it closed before this blog post went live. Bummer! I will learn, truly, I will! 

  • The Male Room – #107 DIY (I had also designed this card with this challenge in mind, but it also closed before this blog hop went live, so I missed out. Bummer!
