Out of Season


Hello Hivers,

I know this card is out of season...the main image and ribbon are even retired, but it is so cute.  I just had to share it.  I used Melon Mambo, Elegant Eggplant and Whisper White card stock to create this card.  The sentiments are from Outlined Occasions and Party This Way stamp sets (sale-a-bration items).

Until next time.....Buzzz you later,

Scallop Square Basket

Hello Hivers,

Today I wanted to share this cute little basket that I made using the Clear Scallop Square die.  A video tutorial can be found HERE.  Thanks, Dawn, for the instructions.
I had some scrap paper left over from the last two projects that I shared.  I used them to make this Spring Time basket.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Enchanted Friend

Hello Hivers,

I am loving the Peach Parfait with this sheet from the Everyday Enchantment DSP pack.  I used the Scallop Trim Border punch and the 1.25 Square punch to make the DSP banner.  I added the sentiment from My Friend stamp set on a piece of
Very Vanilla card stock and rounded the corners.  The flowers are from the Bordering on Romance set found in the Occasions Mini Catalog along with the Adorning Accents Edgelits Dies and Embossing Folders.  Once everything was put together and colored I added some Pumpkin Pie ribbon and some Basic Rhinestone Jewels.

Enchanted Box in a Bag

Hello Hivers,
Time is running out.  Sale-A-Bration is almost over.  You have until March 31, 2012 to get your FREE sale-a-bration items.  Click HERE for more details.

Todays project uses the beautiful Designer Series Paper called Everyday Enchantment.  You get 12 sheets: 2 each of 6 double-sided designs.  12"x12" for Free with any $50 order before tax and shipping.
I used Peach Parfait as an accent color to make the Scalloped trim around the bottom and the Top Note that holds the handles.  The flower is made using the Five Petal punch and a brad from the Everyday Enchantment Ribbon and Brad Pack (SAB item).

To make this purse I started off with a piece of card stock cut at 8.5 x 7 scored it at 1.5 on all four sides. This makes the box part of the bag.  Next, I used 2 sheets of DSP cut at 6 x 10.5 to make the "walls" of the purse.  The trim around the bottom was made using 2 pieces of card stock cut at 1.5 x 10.5

Thanks for buzzzing by the Hive.

Petite Purse

Hello Hivers,

Isn't this little purse just adorable?  I made it using the New Petite Purse die that will be available in April from Stampin' Up!.   I used the Mocha Morning DSP on this project and added a flower made from the Boho Blossom punch with a pearl for the center.  I colored the pearl with a black Sharpie marker.

Flower Basket



Hello Hivers,

How cute is this basket?! I watched a video over on Brenda's blog that shows how to make these quick and simple baskets. It uses 7 flowers stamped with the Mixed Bunch set then punched using the Blossom Punch and for the handle I used the Dotted Scallop Ribbon Punch. I also used some SAB ribbon to decorate the handle.

Baby Shower Thank You



Hello Hivers,

Let me start this post by saying I cased someone's card and I can't remember who it was. I used different colors and a different sentiment set than she did. I used the SAB set called Fresh Vintage. The sentiment is from the set Thank You Kindly.

The first card I used the Designer Frames embossing folder on the base card and punched out the sentiment using the Wide Oval Punch. The second card I embossed on Marina Mist card stock and cut it out with the Labels Framelits.

These cards were made for the same person that I mentioned on Monday. I made 10 of each design for her to give to her daughter. Her daughter will send the cards out to thank everyone for their time and gifts.

Framelits Box



Hello Hivers,

If you can't tell....I love our Framelits. I used the Apothecary stamp set to decorate this lovely box. The box was made using the Oval Scallop Frame die and I embossed the Marina Mist card stock with the Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder. I added some Glimmer Brads and Pleated Stain Ribbon as the final touches. This box was created for my friend, I mentioned on Monday, to give to her daughter with a little gift inside. I hope they both like the projects I have made to help celebrate the new little life.

Welcome Baby Boy



Hello Hivers,

Today I am sharing a card that I made for a friend to give to her daughter. After having 3 girls, she is finally about to give birth to her first son. I used the Nursery Nest Designer Series Paper (DSP), Whisper White and Marina Mist card stock. The images and sentiment are from the Sprinkled Expressions SAB set. The "welcome baby" sentiment is from Petite Pairs stamp set.
This is a fancy fold card but I don't remember the specific name of this type of fold. I used the Labels Framelits to layer the main image and sentiment. The inside wording and images were done using MDS. I tied it all together with some Pear Pizzazz ribbon.

REMINDER:
You have until March 31, 2012 to get your Sale-A-Bration items.


Thanks for buzzzing by.
