Hi Stamping Friends – today is the January Happy Stampers Blog Hop. Happy Stampers is the name of our Team of Stampin Up Demonstrators and we are spread across the country. our Theme this month is the Occasions catalog and the Sale-a-bration catalog, hope you enjoy our shares.
My Shares combine the Butterfies Thinlits Dies from the Occasions Catalog (page 26), the Irresistibly Yours Designer Paper (page 15) you can earn for free from the Sale-a-bration Catalog and the Gift Box Punch Board on page 14 of the Occasions Catalog. (links to both catalogs are at the end of this post).
My first share is a small box, created from a 7 x 7 piece of the Irresistibly Yours Designer Paper.
TIPS and TRICKS:
- I used a damp baby wipe to rub the paper with the Pistachio Pudding INk….because the design is embossed on the paper, the ink sank into the background allowing the leaf design to pop – pretty cool technique.
- The box ends up being 2.5 x 2.5 x 1.75
- For the Top, I used the Flower Frenzy Bigz Die to cut out the flower in Bermuda Bay and Pistachio Pudding
- Then I embossed them with the Perfect Polka Dots and Lovely lace Embossing Folders before attaching them to the box
- A couple of leaves cut and tucked under
- I used the Itty Bitty Accents Punch to punch out some flowers from Pool Party and Bermuda Bay
- The butter fly is cut from a piece of the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper
- The sentiment is from Gifts of Kindness.
For the second box, I went a little bigger, this piece of Designer Paper Started at 10 x 10
TIPS and TRICKS:
- this time I sponged the designer paper with Pistachio Pudding and Bermuda Bay – one of the many ways to add ink to this paper for the “resist technique”
- this Box measures 4 x 4 x 2.5 and is tied up with the 5/8″ Organza Ribbon
- I placed a Tea Lace Doily on top before I started adding the embellishments
- This is the Large Butterfly from the Thinlits set and its cut from the Silver Glimmer Paper
- Again embellished with leaves cut with the Flower Frenzy Bigz Die
- and Flowers punched with the Itty Bitty Accents Punch
- Sentiment is from Gifts of Kindness
Super fun to create, quite easily actually as your Big Shot and Gift Box Punch Board do all the work for you, I hope you will give them a try.
