DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #256-Santa Box

#256

Hi Stampers,

This week for our challenge we have a Color My World challenge. These colors just SCREAM Christmas to me. I just couldn't get that out of my head probably because when I am crafting I am listening to Christmas music. Our local radio station started playing it November 1 and it is one of my many guilty pleasures. I just LOVE it!!! Instead of making a card this week I thought it would be fun to make a 3D item, hence the Santa Box Treat Holder. I even typed up a pdf for you!!!

Father's Day Six Pack

Gradsdads

Hi Stampers,

Today for my Grads & Dads blog post, I made a cute Father's Day six pack. That's right, my hubby's favorite---a six pack of beer!!! This card originated from the card I posted for Easter below.

DSCN0260

Instead, I used the cute jar framelit and silver foil sheets to cut out the beer cans. TIP: When cutting out die cuts with the gold or silver foil I place a sheet of copy paper over it then place the cutting plate on top. Any marks you have on your cutting plate will not show through on the gold or silver foil paper. 

I also used the Foil Frenzy Speciality DSP again along with the new mini gift bows. BTW, I think these are SO ADORABLE!!! They are definitely one of my favorite new embellishments.

DSCN0077

This card does fold flat and fits in a regular A2 envelope. However, with the gift bows I would probably hand deliver so they do not get ruined in the mail.

DSCN0078

I used the sentiment from Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set.

I also have a template for you to download for the measurements along with tutorial for the Easter Basket Card/Six Pack.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #230-Gifts from the Garden-free pdf!!!

#230

Hi Stampers,

Back for another DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge!! This week we are focusing on retiring stamp sets. Yup, you know the drill, the ones that are walking the stamping plank. The retiring stamp sets will continue to be made through May 22. After that, it is solely as supplies last. So, be sure to place your order today!!!!

Because of upcoming Mother's Day, I chose to use the retiring stamp set Gifts from the Garden and Greatest Greetings. I made little flower pot holders. You can either put a pellet refill in the bottom and roll up a seed packet OR you can buy a little succulent plant. You can also make your own with the Oh So Succulent bundle. The greeting from Greatest Greeting is perfect for these!! You grow girl!!!

Aren't they CUTE? Well, I made these cute little holders for them and packaged them up for Valentine's Day.

Baker's Box BBQ Grill

Today, I volunteered to make a project for Technique Tuesday for my upline's group. I was going to make a card in a box but thought, why not use our Baker's Box thinlits instead?

This would be cute for a masculine card, Father's Day, etcetera. Why not give it a try? Just remember this will not fold flat to put in envelope. It would have to be hand delivered.

I typed up a pdf file so you can download the instructions.

DOStamper Stars Thursday Challenge #173-Tea for One!!!

Hello,

We have a home sweet home challenge this week.  Lots of inspiration here-tea, teapots, strings-birthday balloons, checkerboard, etcetera. I went with the tea pot!!! I decided instead of a card this week I would make a 3D item. I think they would make cute little Mother's Day table favors. Don't you? If you don't drink tea put a little Keurig pod in it for your favorite coffee drinker!!!

#173

I cruised the internet and Pinterest for ideas. I finally decided I wanted my own creation. So this is it!!! I used the curvy keepsake box  thinlit to make it.

DSCN1036

Recipe:

Stamp Set: None!!

Ink: None!!!

Paper: Very Vanilla, Watermelon Wonder, Birthday Bouquet DSP (designer series paper)

Accessories: Curvy keepsake box thinlit die, 1" circle punch, 1-1/2" circle punch, larger butterfly punch, 1-3/4" scallop circle punch, tear tape, dimensionals, rhinestone, SNAIL, trimmer, watermelon wonder satin ribbon, tea bags

Here are all the punched pieces. You can get all of these from less than one sheet of 8-1/2 x 11" cardstock. You can't beat that!!!

DSCN1031

  1. Trim the curvy keepsake die as shown above. Leave 1-1/8" on bottom of diecut piece. 
  2. Cut 2 pieces of Very Vanilla for spout--1/2" x 3". Place one end into the butterfly punch.        
    DSCN1026

  3. Trim these 2 pieces with scissors.
    DSCN1027     DSCN1028


  4. Punch two  1" circles from Very Vanilla, then repunch with 1-1/2" circle punch where you just punched to get the handles.
  5. Cut a 3" x 5" piece of Very Vanilla. Along the 5 inch side score at 2" and 3". Turn and score at 3/4" on each short side. Look at example above to trim (miter the corners). You cut to the score line. You can place your tear tape at this time.
  6. Place tear tape on bottom of one of the curvy keepsake diecuts and adhere to other diecut piece.
  7. Look at example above for placement of tear tape, circles and spout.
  8. Attach the circle punch to the scallop circle with dimensionals. Add rhinestone to center. Attach to center of "teapot".
  9. I folded a tea bag in half and placed in the box.
  10. Tie Watermelon Wonder satin ribbon around handles and into a bow.

Here are two different angles:

Enjoy!!!

NOTE: IN THE EXAMPLE I HAVE A MELON MAMBO PIECE OF CARDSTOCK. DO NOT CUT ONE. I ONLY USED THIS FOR AN EXAMPLE OF WHERE TO PLACE THE TEAR TAPE ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE VERY VANILLA.

Here is another example of one using stamping of the new stamp set Balloon Celebration from the Occasions 2016 catalog.
