Friends Like You - Positive Thoughts Video Tutorial

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have another Video Tutorial and fun little card for you.  Today, I am using the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set and the coordinating dies from the Coordinating Products release.  Remember that the Coordinating Products are while supplies last or until March 31, 2020.  I designed this card to be a fun Springtime card that's sure to send positive thoughts.  Positive thoughts are exactly what you get in the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set. Use the images and phrases in these stamps to create a bouquet of affirmation for someone you love.  Here's a look at today's project.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started out my card today by cutting the Parisian Blossom Speciality Designer Series Paper to card front size.  And added it to the top folding card base that was made from a piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  Next I cut the Very Vanilla piece using the stitched die from the coordinating die set.  You may be wondering why I picked Very Vanilla for some of the project and whisper white for the other.  I love the mixture of the two because it allows you to add colors that go with both.  Plus it adds a neutral to the white that some don't even think of and it allows the images on the white to stand out more against the vanilla.   


Once the stitched piece was cut and attached to the card base using dimensionals.  I stamped the fern/foliage image from the stamp set in Pear Pizzazz ink.  I also stamped the flower from the set twice full strength and once second generation.  By doing the second generation stamping I have a lighter shade of petal pink that allows for more life to the color combination while still keeping everything cohesive.  I then stamped the butterfly from the set in So Saffron.  Once this was done I used the Nature's Thoughts Die and cut each stamped image out.  


After all the die cutting and stamping I took the Very Vanilla piece and stamped the sentiment from the set in Petal Pink ink at the bottom.  I thought that by having the sentiment at the bottom of the card allowed a good place to ground the card and keep the focus on the card.  I then added the stamped images in a triangle pattern.  To finish off the card I used a few of the Champagne Rhinestones.

Treat Week 2020 - #6 PARISIAN BLOSSOMS Ghirardelli Treat Holder


Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you another project for my series Treat Week 2020.  If you aren't sure what I am talking about; I am sharing treat packaging ideas with you all week.  This is day six and we have one more day left.  For today's project I am going to show you how to make a super cute and easy Ghirardelli chocolate treat holder.  I am featuring the Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series paper on my little project.


If you are viewing this post by email you may have to click here or click on the image below to view the video.


As I mentioned before this is a super easy project and it only takes a 6 x 6 piece of paper.  So from the one pack of 12 x 12 Parisian Blossoms Specialty Designer Series Paper you can make 48 of these super cute treat holders.  So if you have a wedding shower, baby shower, or really any reason whatsoever these are a great little make to do.


As I showed you in the video it all depends on how you found them to get the treat on the inside or the outside.  But really it's only a few folds of the paper and then I used the Painted Labels dies to cut out the circle image to stamp my sentiment on Whisper White cardstock, and then attached it to the treat holder with a few Stampin' Dimensionals.


To dress it up a little I added a few of the vellum poppies and leaves from the Peaceful Poppies Elements.  On the original I didn't color them, but I decided that I could add a little more color to the project and make them stand out a little more.   The Peaceful Poppies Elements allows you to add quick and easy artistic touches to your projects. You’ll love how easy it is to step up your handmade cards and paper crafts with these die-cut printed accents.
