Paper Pumpkin June 2018 - Congrats Alternate #8





Hello Hivers,

This is my final card using the June Paper Pumpkin Kit... it is so stunning in person.  I love the layout.  I die cut the "Congrats" using the Sunshine Wishes Thinlits in Lovely Lipstick cardstock.  I heat embossed one of the sentiments in Whisper White Embossing Powder.  

Leave me a comment and let me know what you think.

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

Paper Pumpkin June 2018 - Bags Alternate #7



Hello Hivers,

You all know how I love making 3D projects.  I just had to make another one using this kit.  When I seen Connie's "Tiffany & Co." bag, I just had to CASE it.  After making the Lemon Lime Twist bag using Connie's directions, I made another one that did not require me to cut the card base down. I also didn't score the sides of the bag.   

Black Bag Measurements:  (click link above for full instructions)
8.5" x 5.5"
Score Long side at:  1", 4", 5", 8"
Score Short side at: 1" on each side (one side for taller bag)



                

As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today.

Paper Pumpkin June 2018 - Oh My Stars Alternate #6




Hello Hivers,

I'm back with more alternate ideas for the June Paper Pumpkin Kit. I seen this layout on Pinterest and knew right away that I wanted to use it with this kit.  I love all the different textures going on.  I used the Oh My Stars embossing folder to add texture to the background.  The Gold Foil, Basic Black and Lemon Lime Twist cardstock are the only things not found in the kit.  

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

Graceful Glass Thank You




Hello Hivers, 

Look at all the sparkle on this quick and easy card.  I colored the Graceful Glass Designer Paper with a few Stampin' Blends and added Wink of Stella in all the uncolored sections.  I stamped the sentiment from the Painted Glass stamp set in Night of Navy and the card was complete.

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

Paper Pumpkin June 2018 - Hooray Alternate #5




Hello Hivers,

Just another quick card. I made this by cutting 2.25" off the front of one of the card bases provided in the kit.  I added it to a Lemon Lime Twist card base and decorated with the contents of the kit.  The sentiment comes from the Broadway Star stamp set, also included in the kit.

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

Painted Glass Catalog CASE



Hello Hivers, 

I know it is a bit early for Christmas yet.  But when I have an idea in my head I have to get it out.  If I don't share it now, I will probably forget by the time Holiday season came around.  This is another CASE from the catalog (pg. 164 -165).  I am loving this Vellum.

Paper Pumpkin June 2018 - Small Purse Alternate #3



Hello Hivers,

Today I am sharing another alternate project made using the contents of the June Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I have shared three different sizes of this purse in previous posts.  You can find the original poster of this wonderful idea HERE.  She includes written measurements on her blog along with a video tutorial.  You can find the Large and Medium measurements on my blog.  I did change the measurement for my handle on this purse to 6" x 1" scored at 1" on each end. 

I used one full card of the Lemon Lime Twist and half the card for the Black & White stripes.  I made the tassel using the included Basic Black and Gold Baker's Twine.

As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today.

Broadway Star Alternate - Paper Pumpkin June 2018



Hello Hivers,

Here is another idea I had for an alternate for the June's Paper Pumpkin Kit.  I really struggled with this one, but I am happy with the final results.  Love all the bright colors.  I heat embossed a few sentiments in Gold Embossing Powder.  I added just a bit of the Broadway Bound Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Rooted In Nature - Be Strong



Hello Hivers, 

Wowzers!  I love this card.  All the different layers add just enough to the project.  I had to resist adding Wink of Stella.  I didn't want to distract from the "root" of the card.  I was thinking of my niece when I made this card.  She is going through a rough time right now and I just wanted to let her know how Wonderful she is.  We All Love You, My Dear Niece.

June 2018 Paper Pumpkin Alternate Ideas



Hello Hivers, 

Lookie Lookie!  I have made two alternate cards using this months Paper Pumpkin kit.  I used one of the card bases from the kit and cut off 2" from the front and added that to a Basic Black card base. I added an 5.5" x 4.25" Basic Black piece to the remainder of the kit card base to finish the front.  

I used several elements from the kit and mixed in sentiments and die cuts from the Broadway Bound Suite.  I am going to try to make some more alternate projects.  I am thinking 3D.

Postcard Pals Shadow Box Card - SBTD Blog Hop June 2018



Hello Hivers, 

Welcome to the Stampers By The Dozen June Blog Hop.  This month we are focusing on children.  How fun is that!  When I seen the Postcard Pals stamp set in the New Annual Catalog, I knew I was going to be using it for this Blog Hop.  All of the little critters are super cute.  You know I couldn't resist a stamp set that has line art that I can color. 

Are you ready to see my project?!  I am ready for you to see it.  Here it is...



The card I made is also a shadow box.  When it is opened you can see the 3D effect of the shadow box.  I placed a piece of Tranquil Textures DSP on the inside to make a faux water scene.  The wood pillar the pelican is standing on was made using the Lemon Builder Punch and the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper Stack.



  
I hope you have enjoyed your visit to the Hive today.  So...What did you think of my project for this month?  Leave a comment and let me know. 

Remember, this is a Blog Hop, the excitement continues...

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

Painted Glass Sympathy



Hello Hivers, 

I was sitting and thinking about all the children that are leaving this world way too soon.  It just breaks my heart the direction that this world is going in.  I made this card for the World.  I pray that things will get better, sooner rather than later.  

I used the Stain Glass Thinlits & the Painted Glass stamp set.  I stamped a different image on each Whisper White layer.  I used my Stampin' Write Markers to color the bird.  I love that it is the only pop of color on the card.

Pineapple Treat Box




Hello Hivers, 

Here is another project I made to take on my cruise.  I gave these out to my dinner table mates the night of the Captain's Dinner.   I had a few extra so I gave one to our room attendant on the last night of the cruise and the others went to random people at breakfast. They were a big hit.  I filled each of them with 3 pepper mints and a Help Whip Cancer pin from the Pampered Chef.  I got the tutorial for this wonderful little Pineapple Treat Box from The Paper Pixie.  She has written measurements and a video tutorial on her blog.

Rooted In Nature - Sponging & Torn Edge Techniques w/Video




Hello Hivers, 

I made a third card to match the two I shared on Wednesday of this week.  I also found the time to film a video on making this card.  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think.

I also tried making the same card using some the the Nature's Poem DSP.  It came out okay.  Which one do you like better?



Enjoy the Video.

Rooted In Nature




Hello Hivers, 

I am loving the Rooted In Nature Suite.  The stamp set is so classic and the framelits are divine.  These cards were inspired by a color combination I seen used on Pinterest.  I will try and film a video on the technique used here (no promises).  I have another card idea floating around in my head.  I've added single photos as well.  I think you can see the Wink of Stella much better on the tree card.

Enjoy your day.

Hold on to Hope



Hello Hivers, 

It's getting difficult to find the time to stamp.  Summer is officially here.  The children are home all day with me.  I need to get them into some activities.  
I was able to sit down with the Hold On To Hope stamp set and create this wonderful card.  I also used the Waterfront stamp set.  I love the colors in this card.  I started with the idea of using the torn edge technique.  That is how I created the "mountains".  Everything else just kind of fell into place.

COLORS:
Early Espresso
Coastal Cabana
Bermuda Bay
Daffodil Delight
Calypso Coral
Garden Green
Old Olive
Basic Black

Memories & More Storage Box with Lid





Hello Hivers, 

I decided to update my Memories & More Storage Box.  I wanted to use some of the new Designer Series Paper in the Annual Catalog.  I am in love with the Nature's Poem DSP.  I added a lid to this box and I am sharing the instructions for that as well.  You can view my previous post HERE.  

You can fit 5 of the Memories & More Card Packs in the storage box.  I cut the front of the packaging and write the coordinating colors on it and slide it in the storage box behind all the cards in the pack. That way I will have the name and colors available without having to write on my dividers.

You will see in the instructions that I have decorated the back of my box.  Some might think this is not necessary, but it is more for sturdiness than looks.  So I would definitely recommend adding the decorated back panel.


Instructions:  


Decorate Storage Box:

Front:  6" x 2.75" (cardstock)  5.75" x 2.5" (DSP)

Back:  6" x 4" (cardstock)  5.75" x 3.75" (DSP)

Sides:  4" x 2.5" (cardstock x 2)  Measure up from bottom 2.75"  and make a mark.  Cut at angle from mark to opposite corner.  Repeat on second peice but on opposite side to get matching angles for the sides of the box.

Sides:  3.75" x 2.25" (DSP x 2)  Measure up from bottom 2.5" and make a mark.  Cut at angle from mark to opposite corner (1/4" down from top).  Repeat on second peice but on opposite side to get matching angles for the sides of the box.








You may wish to cut the four outside flaps in half for a better fit (this will reduce thickness of the ends of lid).

Decorate Lid:

Top:  2.5" x 6" (cardstock)  2.25" x 5.75" (DSP)

Front & Back:  1.75" x 6" (cardstock x 2)  1.5" x 5.75" (DSP x 2)

Sides:  1.75" x 2.5" (cardstock x 2)  1.5" x 2.25" (DSP x 2)



File Dividers:

6-1/8" x 4.5" (Basic Gray x 4)
Place on Envelope Punch Board at 2" and punch.  Place on trimmer at 4-1/8" and cutt off edge along the top.  

5-7/8" x 4.25" (Mint Macaron x 4)
Place on Envelope Punch Board at 1-7/8" and punch.  Place on trimmer at 3-7/8" and cutt off edge along the top.

5-5/8" x 3-5/8" (DSP x 4)





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

Petal Palette - Mother's Day



Hello Hivers, 

I made this card for my friends daughter.  She celebrated her 1st Mother's Day this year.  She made it by a few days :).  I am so excited about her new addition to the family. 

I used the Petal Palette stamp set and coordinating thinlits to create this card.  I was inspired by a card I seen on Pinterest.

Love What You Do - Mother's Day



Hello Hivers, 

Here's another Mother's Day card.  I made this for one of my best friends.  I love her so much.  I used the Waterfront and Love What You Do stamp sets to create the card.  I added half of a Pearlized Doily for more sparkle along with the Clear Wink of Stella. 

As always, thanks for Buzzzing by the Hive today.
