Happy New Year! Welcome to the first ICS Blog Hop of 2020! This month’s theme is “Let the Sale-A-Bration Begin” and we’re featuring products from the new Sale-A-Bration brochure that goes live in just 2 days. I used the Happy Birthday to You stamp set to create today’s project.

Cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies:

  • cake layer (used the 3rd largest rectangle die)

Cut using the Banner Triple Punch:

  • both ends of the Daffodil Delight CS strip

Colored using Stampin’ Blends Markers:

  • cake in Light Daffodil Delight, leaving the center white
  • flowers in Light and Dark Calypso Coral, and Dark Daffodil Delight
  • leaves in Light and Dark Bermuda Bay
  • cake stand in Light Smoky Slate, leaving the center white

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • DSP layer glued onto the front of the card base
  • Bermuda Bay CS border and cake layer adhered onto the DSP layer using Foam Adhesive Strips
  • Daffodil Delights CS strip glued onto the back of the sentiment layer
  • sentiment layer glued onto the cake layer
  • Flower Faceted Gem applied onto the sentiment layer
  • optional: glue a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Whisper White CS onto the inside of the card. This isn’t needed because the Daffodil Delight CS is light enough to write on.

Wrapped in Plaid Faceted Box for Inking Royalty Christmas 2020 Blog Hop

Welcome to the Inking Royalty Christmas 2020 Blog Hop! Today I’m sharing a faceted treat box. I love this little box, and I realized I hadn’t made one in a long time. I used the Perfectly Plaid stamp set and Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper. The pearls were colored with Stampin’ Blends Markers in Dark Cherry Cobbler, Dark Night of Navy, and Dark Shaded Spruce.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer and Simply Scored Tool:

  • Cherry Cobbler card stock (CS) cut to 7-7/8″ x 11-1/4″
  • scored the Cherry Cobbler CS along the short side at 2-1/2″, 4-5/8″, and 7-1/8″
  • rotated the Cherry Cobbler CS 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
  • Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
  • Wrapped in Plaid Specialty Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut into 1-3/4″ strips, then cut into triangles 2″ wide (see diagram below)
  • Whisper White Thick CS cut to 1-1/8″ x 3″

S

Stamped with the Perfectly Plaid stamp set:

  • sentiment in Night of Navy ink onto the 1-1/8″ strip of Whisper White CS stamp set

Cut using the Banner Triple Punch:

  • left end of the sentiment strip

Cut using the 1/2″ Circle Punch:

  • finger notch in the front panel of the box

Colored using Stampin’ Write Markers:

  • 1 Pearl Basic Jewel in Dark Cherry Cobbler
  • 1 Pearl Basic Jewel in Dark Night of Navy
  • 1 Pearl Basic Jewel in Dark Shaded Spruce 

Assembled the box:

  • made all cuts in the Cherry Cobbler base using Paper Snips (refer to diagram)
  • burnished all the folds in the Cherry Cobbler CS base with a Bone Folder (This is much more easily done after making the cuts.)
  • 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
  • sentiment strip glued onto the lid of the box
  • pearls applied onto the sentiment strip
  • 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

Come to Gather Gift Bag for Autumn IRBH

inKing Royalty Blog Hop, September 2019, Autumn

It’s time for the Inking Royalty Blog Hop for September! This month’s theme in Autumn. And what could be more Autumnal than beautifully colored leaves? For my project, I used products from the Come to Gather Suite to decorate a gift bag from last month’s Paper Pumpkin kit. (You can see another project I made using these bags here.) From the suite, I used the Gather Together bundle (Gather Together stamp set and Gathered Leaves Dies) and Come to Gather Designer Series Paper.

I was going to use the Come To Gather Ribbon Combo Pack as well, but I got so carried away with the leaves, I didn’t think it needed it. I used each embossed leaf die (3 in the set) to cut two each of four colors – and I used 18 of the 24 leaves I cut! Guess I just couldn’t stop until I had a big leaf pile! Doesn’t it make you want to jump in and scatter them?

Be sure to hop all the way around to all the stops. You don’t want to miss any of the great projects from this talented group!

Here’s what I made:

  • sentiment in Versamark ink on the leaf, then heat embossed in copper

Cut using the Gathered Leaves Dies:

  • stamped leaf
  • assortment of embossed leaves from scraps of Merry Merlot, Cajun Craze, and Pretty Peacock CS and Copper Foil Sheet

Cut using the Banner Triple Punch:

  • one end of each of the 3 paper strips

Assembled the project:

  • adhered the 3 tags together using Snail
  • adhered the assorted leaves onto the tags and each other using Snail
  • large stamped leaf adhered onto the leaf “pile” using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals

Boo To You Frame Decor

Today is my first time participating in the Home Decor SU Style Blog Hop. I used the Boo to You stamp set, Word Wishes Dies, and Monster Bash Designer Series Paper to create this greeting for my foyer table.  I just love the Boo to You stamp set’s three adorable little monsters. Now I realize that “adorable monsters” might seem like an oxymoron, but these guys really are cute. 

S

Here’s what I made:

  • “Happy” and “Halloween” from scraps of Pumpkin Pie and Basic Black CS

  • I also added some shading using an Early Espresso Stampin’ Write Marker.

  • 3 colored monsters

Assembled the project:

  • googly eyes glued onto the monsters (purple monster has two small orange eyes; zombie had a small white eye and a large purple eye; werewolf has a large purple eye and a small green eye.)
  • Pumpkin Pie CS words glued on top of the Basic Black CS words, just slightly askew to make a shadow
  • monsters adhered onto the DSP using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my paper trimmer:

  • Basic Black card stock (CS) cut to 4-1/4″ x 11″, then scored in half at 5-1/2″

  • Whisper White CS cut to 3-3/4″ x 5″ for the inside of the card base

Stamped with the Still Scenes stamp set:

  • outer sentiment in Versamark ink onto a scrap of Basic Black CS, then heat embossed in silver
  • inner sentiment in black ink onto the Whisper White CS for the inside of the card base

Cut using the Snow Globe Scenes Dies:

  • trees and 2 deer from a scrap of Silver Foil Sheet
  • hole for shaker dome from the Basic Black CS layer
  • snow globe base from a scrap of Silver Foil Sheet (one detailed and solid)

Cut using the Stitched Rectangle Dies:

  • heat embossed sentiment
  • slightly larger piece from a scrap of Silver Foil Sheet
  • NOTE: There isn’t a die in the set to cut the sentiment as I wanted to, so I used a larger die and cut it twice as shown below. I cut the Silver Foil piece the same way.

Embossed using the Swirls & Curls Embossing Folder:

  • Basic Black CS layer (be sure to emboss it after die cutting)

Assembled the card:

  • burnished the fold in the card base with a Bone Folder
  • trees and one deer adhered onto the front of the card base using Snail, so they will show through the hole in the Basic Black CS layer
  • adhesive backing pulled off the top edge of the shaker dome, the dome put through the hole in the Basic Black CS layer, and adhered onto the back side, 
  • Snowflake Sequins laid over the trees and deer
  • adhesive backing pulled off the bottom edge of the shaker dome, and Basic Black CS layer glued onto the front of the card base, so the sequins are trapped under the shaker dome
  • NOTE: Be sure you press well to seal around the shaker dome. I left it a bit loose and the sequins stick to the edges.
  • detailed base adhered onto the solid base using Snail, then adhered onto the Basic Black CS layer using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • front sentiment adhered onto the die cut Silver Foil, then the foil adhered onto the Basic Black CS layer using Black Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • second deer adhered onto the Whisper White CS for the inside of the card base using Snail, and any excess trimmed away using Paper Snips
  • Whisper White CS glued onto the inside of the card base

Harvest Hellos for ICS 09-2019

It’s time for the ICS 09-2019 Blog Hop! This month’s theme is Fabulous Fall. What could be more fabulous that going back to school? I know, not everyone feels that way, but when I was a kid, I couldn’t wait to get back to see my friends. I enjoyed school. And the beginning of the school year was special because I got a new notebook, paper, pencils, etc. and some new school clothes. My project for today is a welcome back to school card. I used the Harvest Hellos bundle (Harvest Hellos stamp set and Apple Builder Punch.) I sponged Cherry Cobbler ink onto Crushed Curry cardstock for the apple. The star background is from the Night Before Christmas Designer Series Paper. All the new holiday products are now available to order!
