A Good Day…For Candy!

A Good Day!

Today’s project is an adorable candy box that anyone would love to receive for Valentine’s Day, or any occasion for that matter, using some great products from the Occasions Catalog…namely, A Good Day stamp set!

Stampin'-Up!-Painted-With-Love-Box-Angela-Waters-#StampAfterSunrise-Box

If the “A Good Day” stamp set from the Occasions Catalog isn’t already on your wish list, it would be a great one to add.  It has the most adorable images…and so perfect to punch out with the Scallop Circle Punches for a quick addition or main focus to a card.  It would make a great $50 bundle, and then you can take advantage of a Sale-A-Bration level 1 FREEBIE!

Two-Tone Sentiment

In case you’re wondering how the “Just for you” sentiment words are in black, but the pointed fringe is Melon Mambo, just stamp the sentiment on two separate pieces of Whisper White; one in Memento and one in Melon Mambo.  Now, you’ll punch the Memento one out with the 1″ circle punch and then the Melon Mambo one gets punched using the 1-3/8″ scallop circle punch.  Layer one on the other and you’ve accomplished the two-tone look!  Add a little more pop by running a gold sheet through the Big Shot using 1-3/4″ layering circle framelits and layer the sentiments on top using dimensionals.

The Box

Now let’s take a look at how the box was made.  I’ll take you step-by-step with pictures so hopefully you can go straight to your craft room and create one yourself!

First, you’ll need 2 pieces of Melon Mambo cardstock; one cut to 6-1/2″ x 11″ and the other cut at 2-5/8″ x 4-1/2″.  Cut off the two 5/8″ pieces and the 1/4″ x 5/8″ on the opposite corners as shown.

Stampin'-Up!-Painted-With-Love-Box-Angela-Waters-#StampAfterSunrise-1

Next, Make a mark with a pencil 2″ down from the top.  Align the Painted With Love DSP at the top of this piece.

Stampin'-Up!-Painted-With-Love-Box-Angela-Waters-#StampAfterSunrise-2

Using your Stampin’ Trimmer, align the 2 from the score line to the 2″ mark along the groove of the Trimmer as shown.  Cut off the wedge.

Now, adhere 1-3/8 x 5-1/8 to the second panel as shown.

Stampin'-Up!-Painted-With-Love-Box-Angela-Waters-#StampAfterSunrise-6

Next, you need to cut a window out leaving a 1/4″ frame around the cut.  Do this by using the Trimmer and aligning  on the 1/4″ mark (on the right side) and cut 1/4″ down and stop 1/4″ from the DSP end.

Stampin'-Up!-Painted-With-Love-Box-Angela-Waters-#StampAfterSunrise-7

Adhere tear tape to inside of frame and adhere window sheet.

Stampin'-Up!-Painted-With-Love-Box-Angela-Waters-#StampAfterSunrise-8

Next, we close the wedge flap.  This makes the pocket for the card.  Adhere the “box” right at the 4-1/2″ score line and then close one end with adhesive.

Next, if you haven’t already eaten all the chocolate while making your fun box, wrap 5 chocolate nuggets with 1″ x 3-1/5″ strips of DSP and insert into the box and then close up the other end.

Finally, punch a hole in the top of the card and finish off with Powder Pink Shimmer ribbon and bow.

Hope this inspires you to try something new if you haven’t made something like this before!

A Tutti-Frutti Hello, Friend!

Hello Friend!

Today I’ve got a bright and cheerful card for you, friend, to drive those winter blues away.  At least it’s been cold and snowy where I’m at!  I could use a little sunshine and happiness right about now.  This card should do the trick!

Fruit Basket Bundle

This card features some fabulous product from the Occasions Catalog!  It starts off with the Fruit Basket Bundle.  That stamp set is where our “Hello Friend” sentiment and those cute pineapples came from.  The pineapples were stamped as well as punched out with the Itty Bitty Fruit Punch Pack and the stem layered on top of the stamped image with a mini dimensional.  A fun way to make your card pop!

We get more fun with the Tutti-frutti Adhesive-Baked Sequins scattered on the card.  There’s nothing better than having your sequins already have adhesive on them!  Am I right?!

Sale-A-Bration Bundle Idea

Want to use some of these products on your next card?  Here’s a great $50 bundle idea to get these products in your hand as well as qualify for a Sale-A-Bration FREEBIE!

Sequins Make It Picture Perfect!

Next, I took a piece of vellum and ran it through the Big Shot with the Scattered Sequins embossing folder and layered it on top of Daffodil Delight card stock.  Under half of the vellum I put a piece of the Bubbles & Fizz DSP (a Sale-A-Bration level 1 freebie) because you can never have too much of that Lemon Lime Twist color!

To finish off the card, I put down some Lemon Lime Twist 3/8″ mini striped ribbon and on top of that, used my Big Shot and a die from the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies which I stamped my sentiment and pineapples on.  Tie it off with some Whisper White Baker’s Twine and you’re on your way to sending a card that’s sure to brighten your friend’s day!

JANUARY HOSTESS CODE

Don’t forget, if you want to get your hands on some FREE Tutti-Frutti Adhesive-backed Sequins, simply use my January Hostess Code with your order!  You will get these adorable sequins for free with a $75 order!

Also, don’t miss out on the NEW Reward Levels this year with Sale-A-Bration.  Check out my post talking about it HERE!
