Hexagon Dimensionals Folder Beehive Gift Box

Hi Stampers,

The dimension this embossing folder gives is out of the park. It looks 3D in real life!!! Remember because it is so THICK only use one cutting pad!!! It also works great with the Window Box Thinlits. What a cute little box to give to someone sweet!!! I did sponge Crushed Curry Ink on the box after embossing to highlight the hexagons. I used the You're So Sweet for the sentiment. How appropriate for this project, huh?

The little bees are from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlit dies. A clever trick my upline, Dawn Olchefske, shared is punch a 1/2" circle and adhere to the back along with 1/4 of one.

Happy 17th Birthday Connor!!!

Hi Stampers,

Babyconnor

Our oldest grandson, Connor, turned 17 a little over a week ago and we celebrated this past weekend. As with boys his age, what is one of the things they like best? If you said video games, you got it right. I googled a game controller and printed out an outline. I also traced inside for the liner. I even uploaded one for you!!!

For the controls I used the 1-1/4" circle and 1" circle punches. For the tiny ones, I used the balloon, star and 1/4" circle punches. I also used the classic  label punch when the card was folded to cut out the "center". I just placed the punch a smidgeon down. I hope this makes sense.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #218-Sequin Trim Flower

#218

Hi Stampers,

I am FINALLY able to participate in this week's DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge. I made my card up this past weekend so I would be ready for a change. This week's challenge is a product spotlight-ribbon and trims. I know all of you know how to use ribbon on your cards. I challenged myself to come up with a way to use the sequin trim. It seems like I have so much of this left. I used the Balloon Bouquet Punch for the flower petals.  I actually made 2 cards for this challenge. I hope you like them and they inspire you in some way!!!
