Stampin' Up! Boxes are Great!

Hello Stamping Friends, 

How are you on this fine day? Any fun plans? Whatever the day has in store for you just enjoy every moment. Make it the best day ever.

This week with the Sisters in Stamping we are sharing boxes with you. Stampin' Up! has some great boxes to use in your crafting. Plus, you can even make some of your own boxes if you need to. Really, the options are endless. When was the last time you made or decorated a box? If it's been awhile, give it a try. You'll have fun creating.

I used one of the adorable mini paper pumpkin boxes found in the annual catalog. I covered the box using some cardstock and the Pansy Petal designer series paper. Notice I actually just used layers of paper instead of covering the entire box. I like leaving the white border. It gives it another layer. What's inside you ask? Well, keep scrolling......

I made a set of notecards to go inside using the same pack of designer paper. I will be offering a class on this soon, so keep watching for more information. If you want to be on my email list, let me know by emailing me HERE. You will receive all updates.

These cards use only paper. I didn't stamp on them at all. You can always add a greeting to them (which I will have as an option at the in person class). I love Stampin' Up!'s designer series paper and how you can so easily create beautiful looking projects with little effort and the coordination is absolutely beautiful.

Don't forget this week is the last week for the Designer Series Paper Sale. So don't delay. 15% off select packs. (Pansy Petals is one of the packs on sale) See all the information HERE

Don't forget to visit the Sisters in Stamping blog to see more boxes.

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon.

Share it Sunday Blog Hop - Crafty Collaborations

Hello Stamping Friends,

Hello and happy Sunday. Hope you are having a fantastic weekend. I'm excited to be a part of this blog hop again this month. Be sure to continue clicking the links below to be inspired.

I used the timeless tulips set to make a sweet little hello card to send to a friend. If you can't send real flowers, then a nice bunch of paper flowers would certainly be welcomed. They are so cheerful.

There are two tulips stamped directly on the white cardstock and then the front three are stamped on scrap paper, punched out and attached with dimensionals.  The stems and two leaves are stamped on the white layer and then two of the leaves are on scrap paper and punched out.

Crafty Challenge Blog Hop - Color Challenge

Hello Stamping Friends,

Welcome to another fabulous blog hop. This one is a color challenge. I enjoy creating using a color challenge because it often takes me out of my usual comfort zone to use colors that I don't often use together or at all. Do you have some colors that you just don't use to create with?  Well, this color challenge wasn't anything like that for me. This was super fun because they are totally my colors and colors that I often use. Actually, just last week I made a card with the same colors, just two different shades for the blue and pink, but close enough. Trust me.

See! Doesn't this color combo have my name all over it? It's bright, fun, and cheerful. I love, love, love it. I made a get well card today and I think this is the perfect color combo to cheer a friend up when they are feeling under the weather.

I used the Blossoms in Bloom stamp set. I love that the one stamp is a cluster of flowers because it gives you a perfect corner piece for your project that looks great every time. You're spacing will never be off. After stamping the flowers, I just fill in with some leaves and it comes together perfectly every time.  

I stamped the greeting on a strip of cardstock that was left after cutting the front and inside white cardstock to size. No wasting! I then just used a scrap of granny apple green to layer that and place it on the card.  The greeting isn't huge and I felt like it needed something else so I stamped a few small flowers on each side of it.  Added some gems and the finished look if just what I wanted, even if I wasn't quite sure when I started. (LOL)

Then for the inside I just stamped one simple flower to carry the flower theme inside. That little extra touch brings your project all together. Take an extra step and stamp an envelope too. A bunch of flowers on the corner of the front or a lot of little flowers (from the inside) stamped all over the flap of the envelope would make the recipient smile.

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon.   Don't forget to keep hopping by clicking the links below.

Sympathy Cards with Sisters in Stamping

Hello Stamping Friends,

Time for another great challenge with Sisters in Stamping. This week we are sharing Sympathy cards. Cards we all need from time to time, but most of us don't enjoy making them because of the reason we need them. Am I right?

This is a super simple card and crazy, quick and easy to make. I used the birch background stamp on very vanilla cardstock. The stamp was inked with Sahara sand ink. Then that is layered on a piece of Sahara sand cardstock. Finally, it added to a base card of thick very vanilla cardstock. 

I used a Thinking of you greeting, but you can easily change that out to a Sympathy greeting. I just thought it was still a good greeting to let someone know you are thinking of them during their difficult time.

I punched out the greeting and then layered that on another piece of punched Sahara sand cardstock. Oh, and don't forget, it is attached with my favorite: dimensionals.

Don't forget to head over to Sisters in Stamping to see more ideas for Sympathy cards. I pray you won't need to use a sympathy card for a very long time though.

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon.
