Welcome to the February OSAT Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Sixteen Candles, and we’re sharing birthday themed creations. I used the Outdoor Barbecue stamp set to create a birthday card and treat box, both with punny sentiments. One of the sentiments is included in the stamp set. I created the other one using the corn image stamp and bits and pieces from other stamp sets. Puns may be corn-y, but I love ’em!

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer, for the card:

  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Best Dressed Designer Series Paper (DSP) layer cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″
  • Basic Black card stock (CS) layer cut to 2-5/8″ x 5″
  • Pear Pizzazz CS layer cut to 2-1/2″ x 4-7/8″
  • Basic Black CS layer cut to 1-1/2″ x 1-1/8″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 1-3/8″ x 1″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ for the inside of the card base

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer, for the box:

  • Best Dressed Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 2″ x 6″ (2 pieces)
  • Basic Black CS layer cut to 2-3/4″ x 2-3/4″
  • Whisper White CS layer cut to 2-5/8″ x 2-5/8″

Stamped with the Outdoor Barbecue stamp set:

  • grill in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the Pear Pizzazz CS layer
  • grill in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto a scrap of Real Red CS
  • sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the smallest piece of Whisper White CS
  • corn in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the Whisper White CS layer for the box

Stamped with the Label Me Bold stamp set:

  • “smoke” in Smoky Slate ink onto the Pear Pizzazz CS layer

Stamped with the Everything Amazing stamp set:

  • “YOU ARE” in Tuxedo Black Memento ink onto the Whisper White CS layer for the box top
  • Note: I only inked up the part of the stamp I needed. This is easy since you can see through the photopolymer stamp.

Stamped with the Pocketful of Happiness stamp set:

  • “SO” and “y” in Basic Black ink onto the Whisper White CS layer for the box top
  • Note: I used a Basic Black Stampin’ Write Marker to color only the parts of the stamps I needed.

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • body of the Real Red grill

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • grill legs and shelf in Light Smoky Slate
  • corn in Dark Daffodil Delight and Light Old Olive

Colored using a Stampin’ Write Marker:

  • red grill handle in Basic Black
  • hyphen between the corn and the “y” onto the Whisper White CS layer for the box top

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • larger Basic Black CS layer glued onto the DSP layer, lined up along the left
  • Pear Pizzazz CS layer glued onto the larger Basic Black CS layer
  • Real Red CS grill body glued over the grill body on the Pear Pizzazz CS layer
  • sentiment glued onto the smaller Basic Black CS layer, then adhered onto the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Assembled the box:

  • burnished the folds in the box with a Bone Folder, and folded in the flaps to form the box
  • a DSP strip put inside the box to cover the front and two sides
  • the other DSP strip put inside the box to cover the bottom, back, and top
  • filled with treats and closed the box
  • Whisper White CS layer glued onto the Basic Black CS layer
  • Basic Black CS layer adhered onto the lid of the box using Tear & Tape
