Bee Thankful

I hope you have seen the new Honey Bee Bundle in the Mini Catalog.  It is so cute.  And it pairs with a Sale-A-Bration FREE Designer Series Paper named Golden Honey.  They are perfect together and make beautiful projects.  I am sharing a card I made with my Stamp Club this past Sunday.  I shared the Valentine card we made Tuesday.  You can see that post HERE, or go to the Gallery at the top of the page for all of my posts.

Now on to the Bee Thankful card.

 

Stampin' Up!, Bee Thankful, Golden Honey, Jackie Beers

 

When we made the card in class, I had made one ladies cards that was sick, and I changed the bee on the beehive to another die cut bee.  I failed to take a photo of that one.  It helps that bee to stand out a bit more.

I used Crushed Curry Ink for the beehive and the background of the sentiment.  I used the Dark Daffodil Delight Blends to color the stripes on the bee.  I have found that these do not bleed up next to the Memento Tuxedo Black where the Stampin’ Write Markers sometimes do bleed a bit of the black.

I used punches for the beehive background and the sentiment layers.  The gold dots are leftover from the Christmastime Suite that was a special release in November.  I love the Gold Dots!!

Thank you so much for stopping by today.  I hope you see the cuteness, and the value, of combining these great products.  The Honey Bee Bundle is 41.25.  If you add Crushed Curry Card Stock  for 8.75, you are at exactly 50.00.  You then can choose the Golden Honey Designer Series Paper from Sale-A-Bration FREE!  All of the supplies I used are at the bottom of the page and can be added to your cart with a simple click.  And if your order is below $150.00 , please use the host code I have just below.

If you have any questions, please reach out to me.  I would love to speak with you and help in any way. I hope you will return tomorrow to see the third card from my January Stamp Club.

Kindness for GDP222

I have been trying to figure out a project using the Best Dressed Suite of products.  When I saw the Global Design Project Sketch Challenge #222 the other day, I looked at the the Designer Series Paper, Best Dressed, and had the card in my head.  Sometimes those ideas do not end up as I see them in my head, but this one did!

 

 

Here is the sketch my card is based on.

 

If you have not looked through this gorgeous DSP, I hope you will check it out in the catalog.  It is on page 55 of the Mini Catalog.  The colors are so vibrant.  I have used both sides of one of the sheets of paper on this card.

The die cut I have the sentiment in is the perfume bottle label.  Stampin’ Up! planned wonderfully and had a couple of the sentiments fit inside it.  I added the single flower, which also has a matching die, for some dimension.

Measurements:

  • card base is 4 1/4 X 11
  • Whisper White layer is 4 1/8 X 5 3/8
  • Bottom DSP layer is 2 1/4 X 4 1/8
  • Top DSP layer is 3 3/4 X 4

 

The price for the Dressed To Impress Bundle is 47.50.  With a package of Stampin’ Dimensionals, you are a little over the 50.00 needed for a FREE item from the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  Enjoy these great products and get another one FREE!

I love all of the coordinating stamps and dies.  Have you seen the flyers regarding some new dies that will be available in February?  I have them showing just below my host code.  They match some of the new stamp sets.  WOOHOO!!  And if you do not have the new catalogs and do not currently have a Demonstrator, please reach out to me.  I will be happy to get the catalogs to you.

Thank you for stopping in today.  I have all of the supplies I used at the bottom of the page.

Merci

Have you placed an order yet today?  The new Mini Catalog 2020 goes live today, as does the Sale-A-Bration Catalog.  I believe this Mini Catalog is a keeper.  I have preordered most of the sets already.  If you do not have a current demonstrator and need a catalog or have any questions, please contact me.  I would love to assist you!

I played with the new Parisian Beauty Bundle today.  I don’t know why I have waited.  I love the entire suite of products.  The designer series paper is some of the prettiest I remember.  And we have tons of beautiful paper.  Yes, I say how much I love products regularly, but it is true.  I do love Stampin’ Up! products and it seems they get better and better.

 

 

I really hated to cover up this gorgeous paper.  It is the Parisian Blossoms Designer Series paper.  But the Eiffel Tower needed its space , so I did what needed to be done. 🙂  It doesn’t show very well in the photo, but I stamped the tower with Petal Pink first.  The die cut tower is then layered over the stamped image and raised with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.  I did have to trim them a bit to fit.

To finish the sentiment, that beautiful “Merci”, I added a rhinestone from the Holiday Rhinestones.  It matched perfectly.  I will add that even with all of the holes in the tower it was not difficult at all to get the little pieces out.  Most simply fell out.  The news dies seem to be much sharper in regard to making the tiny cuts.

Measurements:

  • 4 1/4 X 11, scored at 5 1/2 and folded
  • 4 1/8 X 5 3/8
  • 4 X 5 1/4
  • 3 1/8 X 5 1/4
  • 3 X 5 1/8

 

Thank you for stopping in today.  Please return on Monday for another new project.  Also this coming Wednesday is the first of the Pals Blog Hops of 2020.

Candy Bar Holder

I have a candy bar holder to share with you.  This can easily be adapted to any size candy bar.  I found these large Hershey candy bars on clearance at my local grocery store.

 

 

You can see this is a fairly large candy bar.  I started with an idea from a pull out type holder I had received at a swap last year.  The bottom on that one was closed just by pressing together with Tear & Tape.  This is a hefty bar of chocolate, and I didn’t believe that would be sturdy enough. So I went with a more regular box closure.  I did keep the pull out idea though.

Here is a picture of the pulled out candy bar.

 

 

The Witty-cisms stamp set, new in the Mini Catalog 2020, was a must have for me.  I love the cute stamps and sentiments.  The strawberry and sentiment are one stamp and I stamped it three times to get the extra strawberries for decoration.

I die cut the tags using the Bonaza Die set tag.  I cut one from Thick Whisper White and one from Cherry Cobbler.  You could also use one of the tag punches from SU if you prefer.

The background paper was a leftover piece of Come To Gather DSP.  The ribbon is on the retiring list  as well.

The measurements are as follows:

  • 7 1/2 X 8 card stock
  • On 7 1/2 side, score at 1/2″, then rotate paper counter-clockwise
  • On the 8 side, with 1/2 score at the bottom, score at 3, 3 1/2, 6 1/2, 7
  • Fold and burnish on all the score lines
  • The 1/2″ score line is the bottom.  Cut off the small right edge piece next to the 7″ score line
  • Cut up the scores up to the 1/2 ” mark.  taper the small ones as tabs
  • Place Tear & Tape along the inside of the larger outside section as well as the bottom adjacent to it
  • Place Tear & Tape on the back of each tab.
  • Lay the paper down and fold the small section over, remeove the T&T from the large section and when folded over it should line up perfectly.
  • remove the T&T from the tabs and the bottom section.  Square up the box, fold in the tabs, the flap without T&T and then the one with tape.  once aligned stand it up on the table and use a ruler to go down and press on that bottom flap.
  • Use a hand held punch to center a hole through both layers near the top.

 

 

It took 17 ” of ribbon for this.  So it is a good way to use up some retired ribbon.  Run the ribbon from one side, through the other side and even it out.  Place the candy bar into the top of the box and push down while trying to keep the ribbon even on each side. You should have enough ribbon left to tie a nice bow at the top.

Thank you for looking in today.  I hope this gives you ideas for dressing up a candy bar.  If you have any questions, please contact me and I will be happy to assist you.

Grateful for InKing Royalty Blog Hop

 

Welcome to InKing Royalty’s November Blog Hop! This year’s Blog Hop themes are inspired by a single word – and this month our projects are centered around GRATEFUL. Thanksgiving is tomorrow, and we are grateful you’ve stopped by. We are excited to share our Thanksgiving-themed or grateful-centered projects with you! After you read my post, I hope you’ll hop over to the next person on the list at the base of this post.

The card I made is definitely a “grateful” card, but with a more monotone look to it.  My colors came from probably my most favorite designer series paper of all time, The Come To Gather DSP.

 

Stampin' Up!, Gathering Leaves, Come to gather, Jackie Beers

 

I have probably used every single piece of this DSP.  Today I paired two that are both of the same tone.  Maybe I misspoke on them being monochromatic.  Whatever they are, I love them!!

I die cut leaves using the Gathering Leaves Dies from Mint Macaron and Pretty Peacock.  The die both embosses and cuts the leaves.  I then added Clear Wink of Stella to the leaves for some sparkle.  I decided to add a touch more and went with the Leaf Punch and punched two leaves using the Mercury Glass Designer Acetate.

The sentiment is from A Big Thank You stamp set and is stamped using Pretty Peacock Ink.  It was then cut with the Stitched Rectangle Dies.  The background sentiment  layer is cut with these dies as well.  The sentiment layer was shortened using the technique of matching up the “stitched lines”.  I completed the card with a Whisper White Baker’s Twine bow.

For me It was very difficult to leave all of that open space.  But I sat on my hands and wouldn’t allow myself to add more!  LOL!!!

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you’ll hop along to the next stop on the blog hop, Brian King at Stamp With Brian. There’s lots of inspiration to be found in this group – and you don’t want to miss it!

Scalloped Thank You

I adore the Scallop Notecards from Stampin’ Up!  They are right up there with the Whisper White Notecards for my quick and easy Thank You cards.  I needed one yesterday and was able to make a really cute one in no time.

 

 

Yes, I am still using the Magnolia Lane Designer Series Paper.  It was on my desk and I only needed a strip.  I backed the DSP with a piece of Early Espresso card stock.  The sentiment is from the Goof Morning Magnolia stamp set.  The flower is from that set as well.  I stamped the flower in Smoky Slate Ink that was “stamped Off” once.

This Petal Pink notecard plays perfectly with the Magnolia Lane DSP.  This would be a great little gift of several Thank You cards that are just so darn cute.

Thanks for coming by today.  I hope you will return on Monday.
