Big Wishes Garden Impressions Card in Mango Melody

Notice the similarity between today’s card and yesterday’s card? The Designer Series Paper (DSP) in the background is the same pattern, but different colors. Another thing they have in common is their simplicity of design. The DSP does most of the talking. Today I’ve paired the new Big Wishes stamp set with Garden Impressions DSP and a new color, Mango Melody. Using the premade Note Cards & Envelopes makes card making especially quick and easy. What do you think?

Picture Perfect Party Jar of Birthday Gumballs

Today I’m sharing a super easy way to decorate a container for a party. I used the Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper, Bermuda Bay card stock, and Lemon Lime Twist ribbon. The colors in the paper look great with the multicolor gumballs in the jar. 

I’ve had this jar for years, and I decorate it in different ways for different events. This is perfect for a fun birthday party, maybe for a child. I think I bought the jar at Target, or maybe T.J.Maxx or Home Goods.

I recommend using a small plastic scoop, so there aren’t a bunch of sticky little hands all over the gumballs. Don’t ask me how I learned that lesson.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Bermuda Bay card stock (CS) cut to 12″ x 4″ (2 pieces) 
  • Picture Perfect Party Designer Series Paper (DSP) cut to 6″ x 3-1/2″ (4 pieces)
  • NOTE: I cut the top and bottom off the DSP pieces to have as much of the candles as possible.

Assembled the project:

  • Bermuda Bay CS pieces wrapped around the jar and adhered with Tear & Tape, to each other and to the jar 
  • DSP pieces glued onto the CS, all the way around the jar
  • tied a piece of Lemon Lime Twist Finely Woven Ribbon around the lid handle and tied it in a bow
