Stampin’ Up! Painted Poppies Gift Card Box

Hello again! Nice to have you visiting. Sunday is a card “party” with a new group of folks and I had created cards for the hostess and determined they definitely needed a box for them. The finished box size is 6″ x 4 1/2″, just right for holding five standard A2 cards. Here’s the finished look…

Here are the super easy directions…

For the base:

  • Cut card stock (I used Pool Party) 8 1/2″ x 7″ and score at 1 1/4″ on all sides. Burnish and snip ends – see photo… add Tear ‘n Tape to corners and seal.

This is the inside of the box lid – perhaps you can better see the clip lines

For the top:

  • Cut Painted Poppies DSP 8 1/2″ x 7″ and score 1 1/4″ on all sides. Scoring… Use a shim or a piece of card stock to hold against the left edge of the scoring tool, place the DSP against it and score. This shim or extra paper gives just the right of extra for the lid to fit snugly without buckling the sides of the box.
  • Burnish all sides, trim as per the box base, add Tear ‘n Tape adhesive to box edges. Adhere one corner then place on box bottom and continue with other corners. Box lid will fit perfectly – not too tight but snugly.

Thanks for stopping by today. Would enjoy seeing your project when you create a gift card box.

 

Poppies Moments Dies

Hi All… Oh gosh – I so love today’s card…made with the SU! Poppy Moments Dies and a couple of other stamp sets and another die. šŸ˜ As yesterday’s card, this is primarily monochromatic with Highland Heather the paper of choice. What did I do? Here are the details…

  • Card stock layer is Highland Heather (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″), with DSP from Best DressedĀ  6 x 6 DSP. (4″ x 5 1/4″). Adhere the DSP with liquid glue to the Highland Heather card base.
  • Layer… 3 1/2″ x 4 1/2″ Highland Heather with the Best Dressed 6 x 6Ā  DSP (3 1/4″ x 4/ 1/4″) adhered with liquid glue. Put on dimensionals and adhere to card base, centering the layer.
  • Die cuts: Using the Poppy Moments dies, Whisper White for the outline poppy, and the two centers; vellum for the larger poppy and the leaves,Ā  green vellum from Perennial Essence for the accent on the leaves. Color the large poppy vellum with Highland Heather dark Stampin’ blends. Adhere the poppy outline to the vellum with glue dots in the3 center only. Adhere each of the centers with mini dimensionals. Adhere the green outline vellum to the plain vellum with glue dots and slip under the poppy to your satisfaction.
  • Stamp the front sentimentĀ  from Timeless Tropical stamp set (available as part of the SAB. catalogue) in Memento Tuxedo Black ink. Cut out with Ornate Frames dies. Adhere with dimensionals.
  • The bow – so cute, so fun… I pulled apart three (3) small strands from the flax ribbon and tied in a bow. Adhere with a glue dot.
  • The outside is done!!!

Inside…

  • Whisper White card stock cut to 4″ x 5 1/4″.
  • Adhere 3/8″ strip of Highland Heather to your liking, then add the Best Dressed 6 x 6 DSP.
  • Stamp the sentiment from Rare Blessings stamp set with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.
  • Adhere with liquid glue to the inside of the card.

Envelope…

  • Stamp the flower from Rare Blessings stamp set in Tuxedo Black Memento ink and color using Stampin’ blends markers Highland Heather light and dark and light Old Olive. I LOVE this little flower!
  • Make certain when coloring the flower that you slip a barrier inside the envelope as the Stampin’ blends bleed through. I use old card stock scrap and that works just fine.
  • Adhere a piece of the remainder of the Best Dressed 6 x 6 DSP piece to the envelope flap.

YAY! Card is complete… be sure you sign it on the back so the receiver knows you made it šŸ˜‰

This is such a beautiful card. Make certain you send it to someone who could use a brightening of their day.

Timeless Tulips

Hello! The birds are singing wildly this morning. Isn’t it amazing how bulbs popping out of the ground can get us all enthused? It happens to me for sure. So today’s card is a hint of Spring – Pool Party is the lead color with just a hint of Petal Pink and Soft Seafoam. Here it is…

  • Card base is 4 1/4″ x 11″, scored at 5 1/2″ – Pool Party
  • Layer 4″ x 4 1/4″ Pool Party dry embossed with the beautiful Parisian Flourish 3D embossing folder. Adhere with liquid glue directly to the card base
  • Layer #2: 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ Pool Party. Cut 3″ x 4″Ā  Parisian Blossoms Specialty DSP and adhere with liquid glue to the smaller Pool Party. Put dimesnionals on the back and adhere to the card base by centering it on the card.
  • Layer #3: Using the Stitched So Sweetly dies and second from largest scalloped edge, cut a piece of Whisper White. Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento ink, the stamp the smaller tulip in Petal Pink, followed by the stem and leaves in Soft Seafoam.
  • Adhere pearls from Share What You Love OR color pearls using Stampin Blends markers.

Love the simplicity of this primarily monochromatic look. The sentiment chose lends itself to being used as a birthday, sympathy, congratulations or just a note card.

Painted Poppies

I just cannot get enough of the Painted Poppies stamp set! Today’s post was inspired by another demonstrator – Sharon Burkert – must give credit where credit is due!

Using Tuxedo Memento Black, I stamped the Painted Poppies on Whisper White CS then colored them with Rich Razzleberry blends. I wanted this card simple so used no other colors. While the Rich Razzleberry blends was in my hand I colored the Metallic edge ribbon until I liked the depth of color. The blends dry so quickly and easily and doesn’t rub off on your fingers either. It allows us / you to coordinate with whatever is being created. Fun right?

OK – on with the directions… I cut out the Painted Poppies to the size I wanted with the Layering Squares dies then used the scalloped die from the same set to create this delicate edge, cutting it in Rich Razzleberry. I adhered the Painted Poppy to the Rich Razzleberry scalloped edge, adhered dimensionals to the back and set aside.

Using the Scripty 3D embossing folder, run a 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ piece of Whisper White through the embosser. Remember to lightly spritz the paper with water to get a wonderful indentation. Adhere another piece of Whisper White cs with liquid glue behind this to give this layer more sturdiness. Wrap the blends colored ribbon around these two layers and tie a knot. Place the Painted Poppy squares where you want them and voila! Put dimensionals on this layer OR adhere directly to the Whisper White card base (8 1/2″ x 5 1/2″ scored at 4 1/4″).

This card could fit so many occasions depending on the sentiment used on the inside. I see this as a sympathy or birthday or thinking of you card – so many possibilities.

I hope you enjoyed todays card. Please share a photo of your creation if you are inspired by this post. When ordering from me, pleaser use my HOST CODE: 2TMMA9HX if your order is over $50.

February Paper Pumpkin from SU!

Extra short post today but I wanted to share with you my current creations with the February PP kit. PP is such a treat to receive with all the embellishments, glue dots, dimensionals, card stock AND directions. I usually create one or two per directions that come with the kit, but not always. Here’s what I’ve done thinking “outside the box” …

Questions about PP? Please contact me for more details… now is a great time to invest in this monthly subscription. If you are interested in the March subscription you may order until Mar 10. One of the ideas SU! is using is coordinating the PP with current stamp sets. WOW, does this make it even more valuable for future use.

For now – ta ta. Enjoy your day… make it better by creating and sharing what you love to do!

Bloom and Grow, matching dies Budding Blooms

I really enjoy coloring, so using the blends is very relaxing to me. How about for you? This card in particular was pretty simple & easy to do. What makes a difference in a card are the details. For instance, did you notice the coloring on the background? That was done oh so casually with both light and dark Stampin Blends. It’s a bit too straight for my liking but for today we’re going with it.

Here are the details:

  • Very Vanilla card base cut to 4 1/4″ x 11″ and scored at 5 1/2″ – opens from the left
  • Poppy Parade layer 4 7/8″ x 3 5/8″, put on card with dimesionals
  • Shimmer card layer 4 3/4″ x 3 3/8″: use Stampin blends Petal Pink to color, alternating light and dark. Adhere Shimmer paper to the Poppy Parade layer with liquid glue.
  • Stamp the flower in Memento black ink; color flowers with Poppy Parade blends light and dark; color leaves with Call Me Clover blends light and dark; color berries with light Poppy Parade; cut out with appropriate die and adhere with dimentionals onto the Shimmer paper.
  • Stamp the sentiment on a scrap of Basic Black cs with Versamark ink. (Use the embossing buddy first to clear the cs of static) Dip into white embossing powder, flicking off excess, and heat emboss. Adhere to card fron with dimensionals.
  • YAY! Front is done…

Inside… I wanted to keep this really simple so stamped one of the flower bouquet on the bottom right side in Memento black ink.

Envelope… Again, wanted it to be simple but eye-catching so dry embossed a 6″ x 2 1/4″ Poppy Parade with the Coastal Weave 3D embossing folder. This was adhered with liquid glue and cut to fit.

This card could so easily be done in most any shade using the Stampin Blends. Whatever color you use for the flower, coordinate the underlying paper and the envelope flap. YAY! Can’t wait to see what you do with this stamp set.

OK, after writing this post, I just had to share the rest of the cards I created. I had a class Monday night and did some extra stamping to share how to move the light and dark blends. Here are several:
