Decorated the tin:

Kindness & Compassion for the OSAT Blog Hop

One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop header

It’s time for the July OSAT Blog Hop. This month’s theme is Creature Comforts. and we’re featuring animal themed projects. For my projects today, I used the Kindness & Compassion stamp set with the Graceful Glass Designer Vellum to create a thank you card and a box for the bird lover in your life.

There is an accidental technique used on these projects. I colored the vellum on the back with Stampin’ Write Markers and let them dry. Then I used a sponge to spread glue all over the back, and the ink smeared and created a marbled effect. I liked it so much that I repeated it on the second one.

Here’s what I made:

Broadway Star Cards & Holder for the APPT Blog Hop

A Paper Pumpkin Thing Blog Hop - alternate projects made with the Paper Pumpkin kits

It’s time for the APPT (A Paper Pumpkin Thing) Blog Hop for June. This month’s PP kit, called Broadway Star, coordinates with the new Broadway Bound suite in the annual catalog, and it is a winner winner chicken dinner! It’s all so fun and bright and cheery. You can’t help but smile. For today’s hop I made some small note cards and a holder to store them in.

There are so many different things you can make using this kit, especially when you combine it with the products in the suite. I decided to keep it rather simple. The Candle Embellishments are the only thing from the suite I used on my projects. I didn’t even use a stamp, even though the ones in the PP kit and the ones in the suite are terrific. 

This is the Paper Pumpkin kit…

cards and box, June 2018 Paper Pumpkin for APPT Blog Hop, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy cards and box, June 2018 Paper Pumpkin for APPT Blog Hop, Stampin' Up! #stampcandy

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • cut 3 black striped and 3 green cards down to 4-1/2″ x 6-3/4″, making sure to keep the score line centered, so once the cards are folded they measure 4-1/2″ x 3-3/8″ – in other words, cut 1″ x 8-1/2″ strip off the long side, and cut 7/8″ off each end
  • scored one of the envelopes 1/2″ in from either side and 1/2″ in from the bottom, then burnished the folds with a bone folder

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • cut away the outer edges of the envelope flap, that fall outside the score lines

Assembled the cards:

  • burnished the fold in the card bases with a Bone Folder
  • banners applied onto the front of the card bases (green onto the black card, and white onto the green card)
  • balloon applied to the left side of the card front
  • gold Hooray applied to the banner
  • tied bows with the black & gold twine from the kit and adhered them to the balloons on the green cards using a rolled up glue dot
  • applied self stick sequins to the front of the black & white cards

Assembled the holder:

  • applied a self stick red layer onto the front of the envelope
  • glued two cakes together to make a taller cake, then glued them onto the red layer
  • applied 5 gold candles onto the red layer
  • applied a self stick gold Hooray onto the front of the flap
  • used an Embossing Buddy to powder the bits of the Hooray that stick out from the flap, so they wouldn’t be sticky
  • with one hand inside the envelope and one hand outside, flattened the sides and bottom until they were square
  • tucked under the points at the bottom corners and glued them to the bottom of the holder
  • put the cards in the holder and tied it closed with a piece of the black & gold twine

Very Vintage Tissue Box Cover

I can’t seem to get enough of the Very Vintage host stamp set. Especially the large floral image I’ve used today…..and the last few days. At least today’s project is a little different in that it isn’t even a card. It’s a tissue box cover. I like to make at least one whenever a new catalog comes out. 

A tissue box cover comes in really handy when you want to match the decor of your room, or when you order a case of what you think are solid color boxes of tissues but instead receive a case with cartoon characters on them. Nothing against the cartoon characters, but they aren’t what I had planned on.

 

Here’s what I made:

Here’s what I did:

Cut and scored with my Stampin’ Trimmer:

  • Coastal Cabana card stock (CS) cut to 9-1/2″ x 5-1/4″, then scored at 4-1/2″ and 9″ (2 pieces)
  • Bermuda Bay CS cut to 6-9/16″ x 6-9/16″, and scored 1″ from each of the four edges

Stamped with the Very Vintage stamp set:

  • floral image into Bermuda Bay ink onto a scrap of Whisper White CS

Die cut using the Layering Ovals Framelits:

  • stamped image using a scalloped oval die
  • a scrap of Bermuda Bay CS using a large plain oval die
  • a scrap of Whisper White CS using a plain oval die and a larger scalloped oval die
  • a hole in the Bermuda Bay box top using a plain oval die
  • NOTE: the box top is wider than the Big Shot platform, so I folded in two opposite sides and used them to center the die

Cut using Paper Snips:

  • one score line at each corner of the Bermuda Bay box top to create tabs

Assembled the cover:

  • folded and burnished the score lines with a Bone Folder
  • glued the skinny tab on each Coastal Cabana piece onto the inside of the other one, to create the main box
  • glued the tabs onto the inside of the adjacent sides of the box top
  • glued the die cut Whisper White oval frame around the hole in the box top
  • the stamped image onto the die cut Bermuda Bay CS oval
  • slipped the box top over the box, gluing the inside of the box top sides to the outside of the box sides
  • glued the Bermuda Bay CS oval onto the front of the box, centering it between the bottom edge of the box top and bottom edge of the box
