So Much Happy Bundle for July 2020 ICS Blog Hop

ICS Blog Hop header

 

It’s time for the July 2020 ICS Blog Hop! This month’s theme is My Favorite Bundle. How anyone can pick just one favorite out of this Annual Catalog, I have no idea, so I chose a bundle that I hadn’t used yet, the So Much Happy Bundle. What a fun sounding name for a super fun bundle! My card is Happy Happy Happy! There are numerous ways to complete the sentiment, like birthday, anniversary, retirement, etc. I left mine without for now until I decide when to use it. I will probably sstamp the word birthday on the inside of the card base so it is hidden by the part of the card front where the green streamer is.

Box of Sunshine for 06-2020 PPPBH

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop

It’s time for the 06-2020 PPPBH. This month’s kit is called Box of Sunshine and it’s filled with enough goodies to make 8 bright and cheery cards so you can send some sunshine someone’s way. I used some pieces from the kit and some extra card stock and ink to create a card and a small treat box with lovely lemons on them, because what’s cheerier that lemons, right? I took a cue from the kit for the colors, which are listed on the back of the kit’s instruction sheet.

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Shaded Spruce card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Crushed Curry CS layer cut to 3-3/8″ x 4-5/8″
  • Poppy Parade CS layer cut to 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base
  • Poppy Parade CS cut to 6-1/4″ x 5-1/2″, scored along the longer side at 1/4″, 1-1/4″, 3-1/4″, and 4-1/4″, and along the shorter side at 1″, 4″, and 5″ (See the diagram below. Remove all red areas with Paper Snips. Note that the smaller tabs are tapered and the wide ones have straight sides.)

06-2020 PPPBH treat box #stampcandy

Stamped with the Box of Sunshine stamp set:

  • sentiment in Shaded Spruce ink onto one of the banners from the kit
  • lines in Poppy Parade ink onto the Poppy Parade CS card layer and the outside of the box
  • NOTE: I stamped the box after I had scored and cut it. I think it would be easier to stamp on the card stock before doing that.
  • lines in Shaded Spruce ink onto the front of the card base

Cut using the Detailed Trio Punch:

  • 2 corners of the box tab

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • Crushed Curry CS layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Poppy Parade CS layer glued onto the Crushed Curry CS layer
  • 2 small lemon and leaf stickers applied onto the Poppy Parade CS layer

  • sentiment adhered over the lemon using Stampin’ Dimensionals at each end
  • 3 Shaded Spruce rhinestones applied onto the card front
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Assembled the box:

  • burnished the folds in the box with a Bone Folder 
  • rounded the two corners of the box top tab using the Detailed Trio Punch
  • long side tab adhered onto the inside of the opposite end using Tear & Tape
  • on the bottom of the box, folded in the back tab, then adhered the side tabs to it
  • adhered the front bottom tab over the 2 side tabs (Doing it this way hides the little side tabs between the two full size tabs.)
  • adhered 2 large lemons and leaves onto the front of the box using glue dots
  • 3 Shaded Spruce rhinestones applied onto the front of the box

It’s time for the 06-2020 APPT Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called Box of Sunshine, and it’s all about sending some sunshine to those who need it. Even the box is yellow, and there’s a label in the kit that covers the Paper Pumpkin logo, so you can mail some sunshiney goodies in it. For my alternate projects today, I used the kit to make a Scrappy Strip card and a treat box.

Welcome to the Scrapbooking Global June 2020 Blog Hop! This month we’re featuring new products from the new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I used the new Celebrate Sunflowers bundle (Celebrate Sunflowers stamp set & Sunflowers Dies) as well as a few of the new 2020-2022 In Colors (Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, and Just Jade.) I used Press n Seal plastic wrap to keep all the little pieces of the die cuts in the right place. I’ve used this technique several times in the last couple weeks. I printed the photo in sepia so it would match the yellow/brown feel of the page.

  • So Saffron sunflower outline cut in half with my Paper Snips and glued onto the Early Espresso background so the cut edges would be covered up by the photo
  • Bumblebee sunflower (petals only) cut into 2 different size pieces, then applied glue to the backs of the petals and used the Press n Seal to place them so the cut edges would be covered up by the photo
  • photo adhered onto the Early Espresso background using Stampin’ Seal

06-2020 IRBH – Happy 4th of July!

InKing Royalty Blog Hop - June 2020

 

Welcome to the 06-2020 IRBH! This month we are featuring projects with a 4th of July theme. When you first look at my card, you may wonder what it has to do with America’s Independence Day holiday, other than the obvious sentiment. It’s purple instead of red, white, and blue – wait, what?

I started to make a more traditionally hued card, I really did, but I just couldn’t find my mojo. I started looking through my stamp sets for inspiration and realized I was humming “America the Beautiful.” Just when I got to the line “purple mountain majesties” my eyes fell upon the Mountain Air stamp set. Light bulb! So I used the Mountain Air stamp set to create a scene of purple mountains, along with a purple lake and a purple sky. I imagined one of those sunsets with vibrant purple at the bottom (you know the ones I’m talking about, right?) that casts its purple glow on everything for a brief moment. 

Be sure to visit all the stops on the hop! You don’t want to miss any of the great projects this group has to share!

  • Whisper White Thick CS cut to 4″ x 1-1/8″

New Review for the 06-2020 OSAT Blog Hop

OSAT header

Its a New Review for the 06-2020 OSAT Blog Hop! Today we are featuring brand new products from the brand new 2020-2021 Annual Catalog. I used the Many Layered Blossoms Dies and the PPPS Technique by Kylie Bertucci of Australia to create my card. I used three of the new In Colors: Cinnamon Cider, Bumblebee, and Just Jade.

What is the PPPST? Paper Piecing Press n Seal Technique. Press n Seal plastic wrap is slightly sticky on one side, and it makes paper piecing from intricate die cuts so much easier! It’s available in your local grocery store.

Be sure to hop around to all the stops to see all the great new projects! Use the line up below if you get lost.

S

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Cinnamon Cider card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″
  • Whisper White CS cut to 4″ x 5-1/4″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Itty Bitty Greetings stamp set:

  • sentiment in black Memento ink onto a scrap of Just Jade CS

Cut using the Many Layered Blossoms Dies:

  • a piece of Bumblebee CS using the large outline die
  • a piece of Just Jade CS using the same die
  • NOTE: before removing each die cut from the die cutting machine, burnish a piece of Press n Seal over it to keep all the pieces in place

Cut using the Classic Label Punch:

  • sentiment

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • removed the outline piece from the Bumblebee CS die cut
  • onto the back of the Bumblebee CS die cut, applied Stampin’ Dimensionals onto the large flower petals, and glue onto the other pieces
  • pressed the whole thing in place onto the front of the card base, then very gently peeled back the Press n Seal
  • removed the outline piece from the Just Jade CS die cut, applied glue onto the back, and glued it around the Bumblebee CS pieces (A pointy tip, like a Take Your Pick Tool, is very helpful.)
  • tied a piece of ribbon in a bow and adhered it onto the sentiment using a Mini Glue Dot
  • adhered sentiment over flowers (I used a Mini Stampin’ Dimensional at the left end, and glued the rest of it onto the large petals.
  • 3 pearls applied onto the front of the card base
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

What I would do differently:

  • After looking at the photo, I think the bow seems a bit large. I would probably make it smaller.
  • Maybe I’d emboss the background, probably with the Subtle embossing folder.
  • Maybe I’d heat emboss the sentiment in white.
  • How would you change this card?
