No Matter the Weather for APPT Blog Hop

APPT headerIt’s time for the March APPT Blog Hop! This month’s kit is called No Matter the Weather and it’s designed to make 12 sweet weather themed cards. It also came with an extra stamp set called Spring Splash. Today we are sharing alternate projects made with this kit. I can’t wait to see what everyone on the hop has created!

I decided to make a card and an open top gift box for a friend. The current situation in the world makes almost all of us need a little boost. I want my friend to know I’m there for her…with a bottle of hand soap (you can barely see the top of the pump bottle amongst the tissue paper.)

Greatest Guy by Par Mini Pizza Box

Today’s project is sort of a stepped up version of yesterday’s note card. Along with die cuts, I’ve also used wooden Country Club Elements to decorate a Mini Pizza Box. 

Tip: The wooden golf clubs are not as long as they appear on this project. The wood is soft, so I used my Paper Snips to cut the clubs in half. At first, I did this just so I could cross them without worrying about the thickness. Then I moved the halves apart to make them look longer. The crest covered the gaps.

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″

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:

Boo to You Everything Festive Coffin Treat Box

For today’s project, I used the Everything Festive and Boo to You stamp sets to decorate a Coffin Box. The Everything Festive stamp set has sentiments for several different holidays and occasions, and the Boo to You stamp set has three adorable little monsters. I used Stampin’ Blends Markers to color the little zombie guy, and I used a couple of the Assorted Googly Eyes to really make him pop!

Spooktacular Coffin Treat Box

Today’s project is a fun little treat box shaped like a coffin. Stampin’ Up!’s new Coffin Boxes come pre-cut and scored, so you only have to glue the corners to assemble them. There’s a window in the coffin lid so you can see its occupant, a vampire from the Monster Bash Designer Series Paper (DSP.) The coffin is lined with more of the DSP, and the spiders on top are cut from a Black Foil Sheet using the Wicked Dies.

Assembled the box:

  • 3 spiders adhered onto the top of the lid using Mini Glue Dots
  • 2 Red Rhinestones applied onto each spider, to resemble a Black Widow’s hourglass pattern (Yes, I know it’s actually on the bottom of a real spider and not up on its back, but I took a little artistic license.)
