The Spot Spring Fling Challenge #104

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share my project for this week's themed challenge over at The Spot.  This week's challenge is a Spring themed challenge.  I used the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set which is part of Sale-a-bration.  Speaking of which today is the last day to earn any of the free Sale-a-bration items with your qualifying orders.  Here's a look at my card.

Tips & Tricks: 

I started my card for today's challenge with a 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 piece of Thick Whisper White Cardstock.  I used one of the Ornate Border Dies (which comes out April 3, 2020) along the edge to cut the floral decorative border.  Next I added a piece of the Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper to a piece of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock and attached this to my card front.

I then stamped my sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock along with some of the small blooms from the Thoughtful Blooms Stamp Set.  I stamped the sentiment in Pear Pizzazz Classic Ink, and the flowers in Petal Pink Classic Ink and So Saffron Classic Ink.  I then used the Label Me Lovely Punch to punch out the sentiment and a piece of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock.  I used the Small Blooms punch and punched out the flowers.  I took the pear pizzazz label and cut it in half and placed behind my sentiment piece so that I had a little colorful border showing to make the border stand out from the card front.  I added the sentiment piece to the card front with a couple Stampin' Dimensionals.  I then added the small flowers around the card base with mini glue dots.

 Next I finished off my card by adding a small pearl in the center of each flower.  I also added a strip of the same designer series paper on the inside of the card to and a strip of Pear Pizzazz Cardstock to tie everything in.  This was the finishing touches to my card today.

Gangs all Meer Pillow Box - Case the Catalog Stampin' Up!

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I am going to share with you this weeks CASE the catalog project.  This week I am going to share with you a super cute project from the Saleabration Brochure.  Today's project is a super cute pillow box that makes for some wonderful gift packaging not to mention it was decorated wonderfully for a  Birthday gift.  Casing is the perfect solution if you are ever in need of an idea or looking to improve your skills.  CASE stands for Copy and Share Everything, or Copy And Selectively Edit.  Plus all the Stampin' Up! catalogs are great for ideas, inspiration, and creative sparks.  Here's a look at the todays project.

 Tips & Tricks: 

You're going to need about a 6 1/2" x 3" piece of the Birthday Bonanza Designer Series Paper.  You are going to open the pillow box fill it with your gift and then close the other end.  Add Tear & Tape to one end of the Designer series paper and wrap it around the pillow box secure the other end with the tear & tape.  Stamp the two little meerkats onto the a large stitched whisper white circle.  Stamp the birthday hat in Pacific point ink on top of one of the meerkats heads.   

Color the meerkats with crumb cake ink and a blender pen.  Repeat the coloring process on the ground.  Color the sky with the blender pen and a little pool party ink.  Attach the stitched circle when dry to the pillow box with a couple dimensionals.  
Wrap some of the Bermuda Bay Mini Striped Ribbon around the pillow box and tie into a bow.  Stamp the sentiments on some scrap cardstock and cut them down.  Add to the stitched circles using mini stampin' dimensionals.  Punch a hole in the circle and run some Linen thread through it and tie to the bow.  
And that finishes this super cute project.  I told you this was a super quick easy and cute project.  

You can earn The Gangs All Meer Stamp Set for free during Sale-a-bration with a qualifying order of $50.00.  All of the supplies needed for this project can be ordered in my online store.
