Ornate Thank You

Today’s project features items from the Ornate Garden Suite!

I just fell in love with this daisy pattern in the Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper! Because it’s such a pretty pattern, I wanted it to steal the show, so I opted for a simple, bold sentiment and bow, with a tiny bit of bling (hard to see above the ribbon knot).

This Suite of products has been SO popular in the first couple of days that parts of it are already on backorder! The Ornate Thanks Bundle is backordered, but the Ornate Thanks stamp set, which I used on today’s card is still in stock! And the Ornate Layers dies are also still in stock, which I used to perfectly cut out the “Thank You” sentiment!

QUICK TIP: When you are making a card, make 2 or more while you have all the supplies out! I almost always make 2 of every card I make (sometimes more!), because it saves time and builds my stash!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I missed having my Facebook Live with you this week! I am starting to feel better and have been drinking lots of tea to get my voice back to normal. Thank you all for your well wishes! It’s a crazy time to feel sick! I hope this post finds you healthy and at home (if you can be). Have a wonderful & blessed weekend!

PROJECT MEASUREMENTS:

  • Old Olive card base – 4-1/4″ x 11″, scored and folded in half at 5-1/2″
  • Terracotta Tile layer – 3-3/4″ x 5″
  • Ornate Garden Specialty DSP layer – 3-5/8″ x 4-7/8″

A2 Card Gift Box

Today, I’m sharing an A2 Card Gift Box! This has been on my project list for a LONG time and I thought now would be a great time to give a set of cards to loved ones or neighbors to share the love!

Here’s a different angle:

And here’s with the lid off:

I also made this box in 2 other color-ways:

Which color-way is your favorite? Seaside Spray, Rococo Rose, or Purple Posy?

What I love about this box is how sturdy it is! I designed both the lid and the base to have reinforced sides, which make it a really classy gift! You know what else is great? The Woven Threads Designer Series Paper and Wild Rose Dies are both available for free with qualifying purchases the rest of the day today!

Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial:

Here’s the template for the box base for reference (not to scale):

Love That Never Ends

I’m not sure the timing of the April Paper Pumpkin could be more perfect! What a wonderful thing to “hunker down” with and make cards to send to your family to tell them how much they mean to you while we are social-distancing! It would also be a great gift for those you love, but can’t physically spend time with right now!

Stampin’ Up! created a fun, family appreciation-themed card kit that will make it easy for you to share your heart with those you love most! April’s kit even includes Mother’s Day and Father’s Day sentiments, giving you the perfect way to show your appreciation for beloved parents on their special days with a beautiful, handmade card.

The Paper Pumpkin team knows that everyone’s clan is unique. With that in mind, they have provided sentiments that include anyone in your life who feels like family; for instance, “brothers” and “sisters” who have helped you along the journey of life.

This kit contains all the supplies you need to create 8 cards (with envelopes)! Here’s a video sneak peek about this kit (I actually needed a tissue!):

To subscribe to Paper Pumpkin, click the button below.

You can also purchase prepaid subscriptions as a gift for someone (or yourself). The 3, 6, and 12-month prepaid subscriptions also earn Sale-A-Bration freebies!

So don’t delay! Subscribe today! The deadline for the April kit is April 10! Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed day!

Together We Can Get Through Anything!

Today’s project is a CASE of a card on page 31 of the January-June 2020 Mini Catalog featuring the Perfectly Framed stamp set!

I just loved the sample in the catalog, so I inked up my Perfectly Framed stamp set for the first time and it’s instant love! The photopolymer stamps make it so easy to create beautiful sprays of flowers & greenery!

And I think this sentiment is just perfect in today’s world, don’t you think? While many of us can’t be together with all of our loved ones, there are so many opportunities to virtually be together! I’ve found that it’s really helped me get through these long days of social distancing, home-schooling, shelter-in-place situations. We will get this!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Tomorrow is my Weekly Wednesday Facebook Live at 8:00pm EST! Click the button below to set a Facebook reminder! Have a wonderful & blessed day and hope to “see” you tonight!

Easter/Spring Basket

Today’s project is a super quick, easy & cute Easter/Spring basket!

Perfect to fill with jellybeans, chocolates, tiny treats for a table favor or a little neighbor gift! Here’s another angle:

And a closer look at the sentiment:

Which, by the way, is what each and every one of my fans/team/customers do – always brighten my day! And today we need day brighteners, don’t we? So, let’s brainstorm ways to brighten each other’s day! While we have this time of “social distancing”, let’s put our creative minds to work, spend some quality time in our craft spaces, and spread the love! Leave a comment below with your ideas!

This basket features the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper paired with the Braided Border Punch for the handle! There is no cutting or gluing to create the basket base – which I LOVE. This is a GREAT project to make with little ones! Without further ado, here’s my video tutorial:

And here’s the template for reference (not to scale):

Thank you so much for stopping by today! I hope you have a wonderful & blessed weekend!

PROJECT MEASUREMENTS:

  • Mosaic Mood Specialty DSP – 6″ x 6″
    • Score on all sides at 2″
  • Terracotta Tile cardstock – Use the Braided Border Punch and punch all the way down the 11″ side of an 8-1/2″ x 11″ piece of cardstock (easy to create multiple handles!)
