Stampin' Up EASTER Gift Bag

Here;s an Easter project using the Sale-A-Bration stamp set Honeycomb Happiness.  I used the gift bag punch board to make this cute little bag that's just the right size for a few chocolate Easter egg candies.  The paper is Designers Series paper stack "It's My Party".
I added half of a dolie and white Baker's Twine.  The handles are made using Hello Honey trim from last years Occasions catalog.  For my sentiment I used the stamp Easter Lamb and masked off the lamb and just stamped the Happy Easter.

Time is running out Sale-A-Bration ends March, 31,2016. Place you order now and don't miss out on FREE stuff.  

Also a reminder that in June the new catalog will be coming out and the 2014-2016 In Colors will be retiring.   These are the following colors
Blackberry Bliss
Hello Honey
Lost Lagoon
Mossy Meadow
Tangelo Twist

I really hate to see these colors retire but I am eagerly awaiting the introduction of the new colors for 2016-2018.

Hope you have fun crafting for Easter.

Stampin Up Challenge #2 Happy Birthday

Here is a couple of new projects using products from the 2016 Occassion catalog.

I made two Birthday Cards.

Here is the other one

The suite I used was "It's My Party"  I love the bundle, which is discounted 15%, of the Stamp set and punches 141071.  The balloons and candles are made using the punches and the cake is an image in the stamp set.  Both card bases are Melon Mambo.  I used the Designers series paper stacks "Its My Party" 140552 and "Birthday Bouquet" 140557.

The first card was made using the Number of Years stamp set and framelit dies 140811 for the bundle.  I embossed the 2 in Blushing Bride.  The tiny hearts and scalloped circle were punched using Blushing Bride Glimmer paper140550.

I have one more Birthday project to share in my next post then on to Easter.
If you would like to CASE any of my projects feel free and if you need to purchase Stampin Up products you to link to my site HERE.

Happy Birthday #1 Stampin' Up Challenge

It's time to continue my personal challenge to use the items I purchased from the 2016 Occasions catalog and the items I have received FREE from the Sale-A-Brations catalog.

The suite I will be using is the "IT'S MY PARTY" you can find it on pages 4 & 5.
My first project is a treat box.

I used the Baker's Box die 138279 and the It's My Party Designers Series 140552 paper in Mint Macaron.  I also used Mint Macaron ink 138326.
The cake image and sentiment are from the Party Wishes stamp set 140961.  The lace ribbon is Mint Macaron and the twine is a combo pack 140555 featured on page 6.

Bonus Tag
For the tag I used the Happy Birthday from Sky Is the Limit and the splashes of color using Timeless Textures 140517.  The two ink colors are Mint Macaron and Watermelon Wonder.  Use the note tag punch 135860 to make quick tags for presents and treat boxes.

Everyone one has a Birthday so it's always a good idea to have a few Birthday cards on hand.  Having said that I will be making Birthday cards next.  Come back soon and I will share some ideas with you.  Thanks for looking at my blog and if you like something or have a question feel free to comment below.

Stampin Up Challenge #4 Love Blossoms

My post for today is my final card for Valentine's Day using the Love Blossoms suite in the Occasions catalog on pages 16 &17.  I made a shaker card and filled it with the sequins from the Love Blossoms embellishment kit and Blushing Bride Glimmer paper hearts,

The fourteen was die cut using the Large Numbers framelits dies 140622,  These framelits also come with a coordinating stamp set Number of Years 140633.  If you bundle the two you can save 15% 140811.  These items are featured on pages 10 & 11.

I think I have used most of the stamped images and sayings as well as most of the embellishment kit on all my Valentine's cards and projects.  For my next project I will be moving onto another suite featured in the Occasions catalog, "It's My Party".  I will be making cards, gift bags, tags and 3-D items such as treat boxes for party favors.

If you would like to order any of the items I have featured click HERE to go to my Stampin Up web site and remember Sale-A Bration is going on until March 31st.  That's means with a $50 purchase you can choose one FREE item.

Stay tuned for more crafting goodness.

Love Blossoms #3 Stampin' Up Challenge

Today I want to share another card using the Love Blossoms suite.

This card looks complicated but it's not. All the intricate work is done using the Bloomin' Heart Thinlits Die 140621 and the Bloomin' Love Stamp set 140643.

Want to get 15% discount Bundle the Thinlits and the Stamp set 140818.

I made this card using Whisper White cardstock cut 10 x 5 and scored in half to make a 5 x 5 square card. For the layer I cut Blushing Bride cardstock 1/8" smaller.  All of the stamped images I used are in the Bloomin' Love stamp set.  I used the flowers to make the background and for the sentiment and used Watermelon Wonder ink.

The bow paperclip and ribbon I used is in the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit 140551.  The white pearls 119247 embellishment can be found in the 2015 Annual Catalog 

The heart and flowers for my focal point are all cut using the Thinlits die.  This intricate die has lots of small pieces and our new Big Shot Die Brush 140603 easily removes these cut pieces. Stampin' Up has a great video demonstrating the use of thinlits die and Die Brush.  I am adding it below.

Hope this video from Stampin Up  is helpful.  If you don't have a die cutting machine you can purchase the Big Shot and accessories HERE.  

With the purchase of a Big Shot you might want to consider becoming a demonstrator.  There are so many perks as a demonstrator and I would like to share them with you.  If your only interested in receiving products at a discount you can join as a hobbyist. Want to make money doing what you love, Crafting, then you can join and start a business.  It's up to you. Contact me using my email ogdendoll@gmail, com if you would like more information.

I will be making another Valentine's Day project.

Love Blossoms # 2 Stampin Up Challenge Series

Ready for another project?
Everyone likes to give candy hearts for Valentine's Day so I decided to make a treat box to fill.

I used the Love Blossoms suite again and some of the 2015-2017 Designers Series 138432 paper in Watermelon Wonder.  I really like the script paper.
It was really simple to make here it is

I used the Love Blossoms Embellishment Kit 140551 for the foil heart and the wood veneer heart.  I punched a small heart from the Blushing Bride glimmer paper 140550 using the Itty Bitty Accents Punch set 133787.  The sentiment and banner were stamped using the the Bloomin' Love Stamp Set 140643 and Watermelon Wonder ink 138323.

The dimensions on the box are DSP cut 5 1/2" x 8 1/2".  Score in portrait or vertical position @ 1" on both sides. Turn to landscape or horizontal position and score @ 1" and 3 3/4" on both sides.
Using a bone folder crease on all fold lines.  Trim at an angel the tabs on each side. To put the box together put adhesvie on each tab and then attach the sides to from the box. 
I got this box from Chick n Scratch she also has a video which is easy to follow.

Check back soon for a new project and if you missed my first post just scroll down for my Stampon' Up Challenge.
