OSAT Sixteen Candles Birthday Blog Hop

OSAT header

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!

  • corn in Dark Daffodil Delight and Light Old Olive

Colored using a Stampin’ Write Marker:

  • hyphen between the corn and the “y” onto the Whisper White CS layer for the box top

Assembled the card:

  • 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

  • the other DSP strip put inside the box to cover the bottom, back, and top

I’ll Bee Yours for the PPP Blog Hop 01-2020

Paper Pumpkin Possibilities Blog Hop

It’s time for the PPP Blog Hop 01-2020! This month’s kit is called I’ll Bee Yours and it makes adorable note cards and treat bags. Of course, we are sharing alternate projects with you today, so you can see just how versatile the kit is. I used the kit to adorn a Whisper White card and a Mini Pizza Box. And the sentiment is, you guessed it, a pun! You know how I like puns.

I cut a hole in the card front and filled it with vellum for a soft, ethereal feel. I used the cut out piece on the box. No waste!

Welcome to the OSAT 01-2020 Blog Hop! It’s the first hop of the new year, and the theme is Purses, Poppies, & Paris. We are featuring new products from the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog. I decided to focus on the Paris part of the theme, and use the Parisian Blossoms Suite to make my card and faceted box.

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Cherry Cobbler card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″, for the card base
  • Petal Pink CS cut to 3-1/2″ x 1-1/8″, for the sentiment
  • Petal Pink CS cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″, for the inside of the card
  • Cherry Cobbler (CS) cut to 7-7/8″ x 11-1/4″, for the box
  • scored the Cherry Cobbler CS for the box along the short side at 2-1/2″, 4-5/8″, and 7-1/8″
  • rotated the Cherry Cobbler CS for the box 90 degrees so the skinny section is at the top, then scored only down to the second score line (cross one score line and stop at the second) at 2-1/2″, 5″, 7-1/2″, and 10″
  • rotated the Cherry Cobbler CS 180 degrees, then scored only down to the first score line at 2-1/2″, 5″, 7-1/2″, and 10″
  • used a ruler and stylus to score the diagonal lines as shown in the diagram (see below)
  • Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″, for the top of the box
  • DSP cut into 1-3/4″ strips, then cut into triangles 2″ wide (20 triangles total)

Stamped with the Parisian Beauty stamp set:

  • sentiment in Cherry Cobbler ink onto the smaller piece of Petal Pink CS
  • fleur-de-lys in Cherry Cobbler ink onto the larger piece of Petal Pink CS

Cut using the Parisian Dies:

  • “Amour” from a scrap of Cherry Cobbler CS
  • Eiffel Tower from a scrap of Cherry Cobbler CS

Cut using the 1/2″ Circle Punch:

  • finger notch in the front panel of the box – I recommend doing this after the DSP triangle is glued on.

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP triangles glued onto the front of the card base, cutting 3 of them in half for the edges
  • die cut tower glued over the triangles
  • sentiment adhered over the tower using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • 3 Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels applied onto the sentiment, the tower, and a DSP triangle
  • larger Petal Pink CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Assembled the box:

  • made all cuts in the Cherry Cobbler base using Paper Snips, cutting the two C sections about 1/2″ below the score line (refer to diagram)
  • burnished all the folds in the Cherry Cobbler CS base with a Bone Folder
  • 8 DSP triangles glued onto the 8 triangular sides of the box (This is easier while it’s still flat, before assembling the box.)
  • DSP square glued onto the lid of the box
  • die cut “Amour” glued onto the DSP square on the lid of the box
  • 3 Champagne Rhinestone Basic Jewels applied onto the DSP square on the lid of the box
  • small triangular section at one end glued onto the inside of the large triangle at the opposite end (A & B on diagram)
  • folded all 4 bottom flaps in, one by one, gluing them together
  • put goodies in the box and closed up the top
