Someone Sweet

I have a new project to share today.  And I am totally in Love with this bundle of products.  Handing out little treats and Random Act of Kindness cards is a pleasure for me.  This new bundle makes this So Easy!!!  This is a Sneak Peek from the upcoming August – December Mini Catalog.

 

 

These cuties are made using the Little Treats Bundle.  Aren’t they adorable?  I used the 2020-2022 In Color Designer Series Paper.  I am already in love with these new colors. What makes these extra special ,is that there are colors for feminine and masculine.  They may be a tad on the “sweet” side for some guys, but Hey they contain chocolate!!

Here is a view of the inside:

 

 

These little holders will comfortably hold two Ghirardelli chocolates in regular size.  I chose to go with two of the Mini Chirardelli chocolates.  They fit just below the top of the little pocket, so it allows the top to pull together without a bit of a bump.

There is nothing extra that I needed to do to make these other than just run the die through the cutting machine. It cuts and scores, as well as has the little tab and slot on the pocket.  No adhesive is needed at all for this little cutie.  I used the ribbon with the bookmark type tie to hold the tops together.

The sentiment die is also included in the die set.  I love the scallop with the stitching.  The sentiment is included in the stamp set.  There are sweet sayings for most occasions included in the set.

Friendly Smile

I hope you enjoyed yesterday’s blog hop.  There was a variety of “from the garden” projects.  And today I have a fun fold with more garden foliage to share.

 

 

This is a tri fold card that is much easier to make than it would appear.  Here is a view of the inside as well.

 

 

The DSP is the Forever Greenery Designer Series paper.  I used both sides of the same sheet for this project.  The sentiment and stamps are from the Forever Fern Stamp set.

The card base is 5 1/2 X 8 1/2.  It is scored at 2 1/8, and 4 1/4.  To get the angle cut, I placed the card on the Paper Trimmer as it would be when opened.  With the top of the center score line on the cutting track towards the center of the platform, place the left side bottom corner at 2 1/2.  Cut from the edge of that left side to the center scored line.  The DSP is cut with the same idea.  The center fold has the same side of the DSP on it’s front and back.  The sections that are stamped on have the opposite side beneath them.

The stamping is done in Granny Apple Green for the foliage.   The splatter is in Shaded Spruce but stamped off once.  The sentiment is stamped also in Shaded Spruce.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you enjoyed this fun fold.  Please let me know if you have any questions.

Garden Flowers for Pals Blog Hop

 

Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team is showcasing “Gifts From the Garden.” We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

I took the theme of our hop literally for today’s project.  I made a flower bouquet using the Jar of Flowers Bundle.

 

 

My background is from the Brights 6X6 Designer Series Paper.  I chose to go with the wood look in Poppy Parade.  The Granny Apple Green is also used in the bouquet and works perfectly with the brightness of the DSP.

I love the Jar punch and the Mason Jar Shaker Domes.  They remind me of the old Ball or Mason jars that we used for a variety of things when I was a child.  They were always the vase of choice for pretty garden flowers.  The Shaker Domes really add the look of the real jar of flowers.  I did stamp behind the dome to give the water illusion, as well as added the stems from the flowers.  I did not add any shaker items to my flowers.

The flowers are from the Jar of Flowers Bundle as well.  I stamped, colored, and then fussy cut the flower arrangement.  The flowers are raised using Stampin’ Dimensionals for some added depth.  The flowers at the top of the jar are curved a bit.  I used my bone folder to bend them a little so it looks like they are hanging over the edge of the rim.   I also added a few of the Gilded Gems to the center of the sunflowers.

The finishing touch is the linen thread wrapped around the jar.  I added the bow to hold the tag.  The tag is from the Ornate Frames dies, although you cannot really see the tag top from the photo.  My “Love” is from the Field of Flowers stamp set.

More inspiration awaits! Use the Blog Hop Line-up below to visit the rest of this month’s Design Team. My fellow Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Mark your calendars for our next blog hop, which will be August 12th when our theme is “My Happiest Season.” The Design Team will showcase projects inspired by their favorite seasonal time of the year. Don’t miss the fun! Until then, please stay safe and have fun in your craft room

Ornate Garden

The Ornate Garden bundles and Designer Series Paper were available as a sneak peek before the annual catalog debuted last month.  I have used them in several posts.  Today’s card is one of the beautiful gold embossed floral pieces from the DSP.

 

 

This card was a fun one to make.  I got to do a lot of coloring!   I used a variety of Stampin’ Blends for my fun coloring.  And I decided after adding the ornate border, that I wasn’t even going to give this card a front sentiment.  I believe it stands alone quite well.

The ornate background is the Ornate Layers Dies.  I die cut it from Gold Foil paper.  The ornate layer has a center piece as well.  So I cut my colored piece down to the correct size and simply adhered it with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  Sometimes it is difficult to adhere to the foil papers.

The base of this card is the new Just Jade.  I am growing more and more fond of this color.  It seems to have worked with every color I have placed with it..  Woohoo on this new color!

I rarely do a No Sentiment card, but am happy with this one.  I hope you like it as well.  Please come back tomorrow for the Pals July Blog Hop!  We will go live at 0530 ET.

Simple Lace #simplestamping

I had too much fun over the weekend and failed to get my post for today set up.  Sorry I am late!  I have a #simplestamping card for you today.  It is stamps, paper, and ink.

 

#simplestamping

 

This stamp set is perfect for more simple stamping.  It is the Queen Anne’s Lace stamp set.  I love the flower.  It is a two step flower.  I stamped the stem with Granny Apple Green and then stamped the flowers with Magenta Madness.  Because this is a photopolymer set, it is very easy to see through the stamp to line up where the flowers need to be.

For the sentiment, which is part of the stamp set, I stamped first with Magenta Madness.  I then got the idea to stamp also with the Granny Apple Green.  I simply eyeballed it to line up. Again it was easy because of the photopolymer.  However, two Thanks just did not seem right, so I added the third which seemed be just right.

I was having so much fun with this stamp and the #simplestamping that I decided to do a Note card version.

 

#simplestamping

 

The main difference with the Note Card version is the added layer of Magenta Madness, since the note card is white.  And I only stamped one Thanks.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black to make it pop against the bright colors.

These card are not my normal cards. I usually have more layers and embellishements.  But these are also so fun to make.  I love when they sort of “stand on their own” without the additions.

I would love to see your #simplestamping!  Thank you for stopping in this morining.  I hope your week is a good one.
