Lovely Friends SBTD Blog Hop - October 2017






Hello Hivers, 

Welcome to another Stampers By The Dozen Blog Hop.  This month our theme is Masculine.  I find this to be one of the hardest things to design.  I decided to use the Lovely Friends stamp set for all my projects today.

I have made three cards and a little box.  

This first card is using the Coffee Break DSP.  I cut out the sentiment using the Lots of Labels framelits and sponged around the edges with Pear Pizzazz.  



This second card was made with a special person in mind.  He offered my family help during Hurricane Irma.  I just wanted to let him know how much his offer meant to me and my family.

I used the Wood Textures DSP Stack along with Colorful Seasons and Seasonal Layers thinlits.  The Burlap ribbon and Copper Trim are two of my favorites right now.  


Here's a look at the inside and the matching envelope.


 

This last project started out as a simple one.  I like to make boxes, so I thought I would design one with the Masculine theme in mind.  I used the Eastern Palace Specialty DSP along with Lemon Lime Twist Ribbon.  Then I thought I should make the "Gift Box in a Card" that I've been seeing so much of on the internet.  





 



Leave a comment and let me know what you think.  

Hop on over to Carly's Blog.  She is up next in the Blog Hop.

Festive Phrases Window Box





Hello Hivers, 

I haven't used the Window Box thinlits in a while.  Here, I paired it with the Year of Cheer SDSP and some of the Fabulous Foil Designer Acetate.  I used Gold Embossing Powder for the sentiment from Festive Phrases. I added some Gold Faceted Gems for a little more sparkle.

The Little Things - Coffee Mug Box




Hello Hivers, 

Last Thursday I shared with you that I was playing around with the Envelope Punch Board, trying to make a box using 12" x 12" cardstock.  Well, this is what I was trying to make, a box to fit this coffee mug I picked up at Dollar Tree.  I seen the cake in a mug mixes and just had to make a gift set to give away. The mug fits perfectly in the box.  I just wished the cake mix came with a little tube of frosting.  LoL.  I decorated using The Little Things stamp set and the Merry Little Christmas DSP.  

I, somehow, figured out that I needed to punch and score at 3.5" and 9.5" on the Envelope Punch Board. I know that I am at the 9.5" mark when the edge of my cardstock is at the "F" on the words Final Result. This makes a rectangular box. The measurements I used for the DSP are 3-7/8" x 4.25" (x2) and 2-7/8" x 3-7/8" (x2).


As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.

Wishes All Aglow - Tree







Hello Hivers, 

Another non-traditional Christmas card.  I love that fact that you can color the Year of Cheer SDSP and it will resist the ink on the embossed portions.  Added some elements from the Swirly Snowflakes and Seasonal Layers thinlits.

Vertical Greetings and Wood Textures DSP Stack





Hello Hivers, 

I seen this card on Pinterest and had to CASE it.  I love the look of the logs peeking out.  I used the Vertical Greetings stamp set for the sentiment and the Seasonal Layers thinlits to add a little sparkle with Gold Foil Sheets.  

Enjoy your day.

Paper Pumpkin October 2017 with Video



Hello Hivers, 

OMG!  This months Paper Pumpkin Kit is super cute.  I love shaker cards.  I couldn't wait to open up my kit and get started on the projects.  The coordinating colors for this kit are:  Basic Black, Old Olive, and Pool Party.  The Classic Stampin' Spot is in Cherry Cobbler.  This color combination looks lovely together.  

I can't wait to see what Novembers Kit will be...remember there is going to be some coordination with this months and next months Paper Pumpkin Kits.  I'm so excited.  

Here's a video for you to enjoy.





Here are the two cards I made from the video.

Year of Cheer Specialty Washi Tape



Hello Hivers, 

 OMG!  I am in love with this card.  I don't usually purchase washi tape because I never really use it.  When I seen this tape I just had to have it.  I used the washi tape to make "DSP" for this card.  I heat embossed the sentiment using Copper Embossing Powder.  The sentiment is from the Festive Phrases stamp set.  The inside sentiment is from the Watercolor Christmas stamp set.

The Little Things - Big Box





Hello Hivers, 

I was having a play with the Envelope Punch Board.  I was trying to make a box using 12" x 12" paper.    Well, I did it.  It wasn't easy.  I made three different boxes, using different measurements for all of them.  Now I can't remember which measurements go with which box.  

I think I made this one using the Simply Scored Scoring Tool with the retired Diagonal Plate. Scoring on all sides at 3-1/8" and 8.25".  It turned out nice enough, but it is not what I was going for. 

 I decorated the box using The Little Things stamp set along with some retired Black Glimmer Paper and other embellishments.  I love the Spooky Night DSP.  It works for so many occasions.  

As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today. 
Until next time....Buzzz you later.
