Paper Flock Hop: Fall in 3D

Hello!!! And welcome to our first ever Paper Flock Hop! This hop is comprised of Phyllis Shepherd’s Stampin’ Up! Team members and I am so excited to share all the creations that we have came up with. For the first ever theme we are doing Fall in 3D and show casing items that you can use for fall. I hope you will join us from here on out and make sure to hop along to everyone.

For my project I decided to create a fun box that you could give away at your Halloween party. These would be so great for all the treats you want to hand out. I learned how to create this fun box at the Quarterly NC demonstrator event that I went to. We will also be doing something similar to these at my Retreat in October.

So what you will need to do is take a 6X6 sheet of paper. Using the envelope punch board (item #133774) punch and score on 3 sides at 2 and 4 inches. on the 4th side just punch at the same measurements. You then cut the top of the treat box so that it is flush with the rest of the box (basically the top triangle). And then cut the opposite side on the score lines to the end of the score. You then just put the box together and use your favorite adhesive to stick it all together. If you enjoyed this project I will do a Facebook Live video in my VIP Group that you are welcome to join.

If you want to join our hop you can either join Phyllis’ team or my team and you will be invited to join. Our next few hops are as follows:

Daisy Friend Card and Tic Tac Toe

Do you ever just sit and get creative block? It is like writer’s block but when you are trying to be creative. I know I do! So I was hoping that we could inspire and create together. I made a Tic Tac Toe board and you pick 3 elements off it (either vertical, horizontal, or diagonal) and create a project from that. Sound like fun? You should try it and then use the #pgttt001 on Instagram and Facebook so that I can see your lovely creations and re-share them. Your account must be public for me to see it on Instagram.

I am going to try this for the month of July and I want to hear from you guys if you like it. If you do we can continue to do it. If not we will find something different.

So to get you all going I am going to share the card that I created and what inspired me. So I used the inspiration of the Summer Stamp, A punch, and Bright Colors.

I love the Daisy Suite that we now have but I have been so busy that this is the first time I am actually using it. I used our gorgeous new glitter enamel dots for the center of the card to give it some extra pop. I also used the pretty label punch and added a sentiment from the Daisy stamp set.

Below is the inside of the card.

I cut down all of my Designer Series Paper to be 4×6 inches so that I could easily take a piece of paper and start creating. I then trim down my paper to fit my card front. Afterwards I have this beautiful extra strip that I can use on the inside to tie the entire card together. If you are interested in sampling of these 4X6 sheets please reach out to me for pricing and availability.

 

Finally right now is the best time to make a $50 purchase because for every $50 that you spend in July you will receive a $5 voucher to use in August. How cool is that.

Also if you join my team you will get a $72 value pack to help you hit the ground running on top of the already great starter pack. Need more info? Message me.

 

Have a great Thursday!

DG Wedding

One of my sorority sisters is getting married this weekend so I wanted to give her a special card. I had played with a completely different card design and it just was not up to the standards I was hoping for. My husband (man I love him) said that maybe I should focus on something Pink and Blue since those are our colors. Brilliant and inspiration hit me. I wanted to keep this card really simple and I didn’t want to add a sentiment (Shocker I know). So this is what I cam up with:

Using all Stampin' Up! products

I used the Fancy Frost Designer Series Paper to give the background an antique type of feel to it. I then used a sponge and some blushing pink to give it some texture. I didn’t want it to be even because again I was going for a more aged look. Actually I feel like it looks like the wall paper that you see when you walk into old antebellum homes in the south. So much history and charm there… exactly what I was going for and how I feel about my sister. The pink heart represents the bride and I used rhinestones to give it a necklace type of feel. I then used Bow Builder punch to make the bow.. in retrospect I shouldn’t have added the tails to it but I like it.

This card was a challenge for me maybe because I was having creative block (is that a thing??) but I liked the finished product and hopefully the Bride will love it too.

I hope that this Hump Day finds you well. I would appreciate your comments, any follows on social media, or even a purchase of all our lovely products. This is a great time to stock up on Designer Series Paper too since we have a buy 3 get 1 free deal going on that includes 2 different packs out of the holiday catalog
