It’s a Bright and Beautiful Monday Makes

It’s the beginning of a new week, so that means Leonie and I have another instalment of Monday Makes for you. This week we’re using the Bright and Beautiful stamp set and the Star Framelits. Don’t forget to pop over to Leonie’s site to see what she has to share. I know it will be stunning and a little birdie may have told me there’s a box involved.

My first share is a double time stamping Christmas card using the medium-sized star on the outside and the small star on the inside and the envelope:

Bright&Beautiful9

The inside

Bright&Beautiful8

This is quite an easy technique – you adhere the 2 Whisper White pieces together and stamp on top of both then pull them apart and mat them on whatever colour you like. I’ve just adhered some Whisper White inside the card too.

Now my second share is a card you could easily give a man for Christmas:

Bright&Beautiful1

I’ve stamped with VersaMark and embossed with White Emboss Powder and used a thread from the Burlap Ribbon behind the star and mounted it on Dimensionals. The middle of the star has a Snowflake from the Frosted Sequins pack with a Silver Sequin in the centre and on either side of the sentiment which has been cut with the Apothecary Accents Framelit Dies and mounted on Dimensionals.

My third card uses the sentiment from the set plus the small star for the envelope

Bright&Beautiful3

The inside view

Bright&Beautiful4

I’ve used the Star Framelits to cut a star out in the Silver Glimmer Paper with the backing being the Silver Fancy Foil Vellum. I’ve cut a larger star out of the Whisper White and tied a bow with the Silver 1/8″ Ribbon on top. I’ve used the other sentiment from the set for the inside of the card.

My next share is an ornament you could hang on your tree, on a wall or window, anywhere really and uses the non-traditional Christmas colours of Night of Navy and Silver and the Star Framelits:

Bright&Beautiful7

I’ve stamped on the Night of Navy with VersaMark and embossed with Silver Emboss Powder. I’ve also stamped on Whisper White with VersaMark and embossed with Silver. I’ve cut all the stars out with the Star Framelits. All except the largest star are scored using the track of my Stampin’ Trimmer and my Bone Folder and then I have burnished the score lines. The centres of the stars have hot glue behind them. You could also use fun foam or a number of Dimensionals to give you the height needed. The Silver 1/8″ Ribbon is adhered to the back of the largest star and acts as the hanger.

My last projects today is another decoration and you can choose to stand it or hang it depending on your space:

Bright&Beautiful6

This decoration is made my stamping with VersaMark 4 times on Early Espresso and then using White Emboss Powder. Cut the 4 stars out using the Star Framelit. Score each Star down the middle and fold. Adhere each star together and place the ribbon on top in the form of a bow or hanger or both depending on what you want.

Bright&Beautiful5

Trim the Trees on Thursday

Double_Treat_Box2

You’re probably wondering where your tutorial is today. It’s still here, just in a different format. I’ve used the Tiny Treat Boxes and the Trim the Trees DSP Stack to complete this project. Here’s how:

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Take 2 Tiny Treat Boxes and trim the side flaps off the top of each box plus the tiny flap off the lid of the box.
  • Take a piece of DSP 8.5cm x 8.5cm and adhere to the lid of the treat box so you can see it when the lid is open
  • Use a Large Oval punch and punch a hole in 1 lid. Use that lid to mark where to punch out on the 2nd lid and punch out – this gives you your handle. If you do the 2 lids when they are stuck together, the punch won’t be able to punch through  all the thicknesses.
  • Put the base of the boxes together and place Sticky Strip or Fast Fuse on the back of 1 box back and the back of the lid.
  • Adhere the 2 boxes together to form the shape shown.
  • Take 2 strips of DSP which are the length of the DSP paper and 5.5cm wide. Adhere these 2 pieces to each long side of the joined boxes
  • Take 2 pieces of DSP which are 4.5cm x 5.5cm and adhere to each end of the joined boxes
  • Take 2 lengths of Cherry Cobbler 1″ Sheer Linen Ribbon and tie one length around the combined boxes and one through the punched handle
  • Take a piece of White Baker’s Twine and 1 All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishment and tie through ribbon
  • Now all you need to do is fill your little carrier. It will hold 2 standard take away coffee cups as well as many other wonderful gifts.

Double_Treat_Box1

PRODUCTS USED:

  • Tiny Teat Box
  • Trim the Trees DSP Stack
  • Large Oval Punch
  • Cherry Cobbler 1″ Sheer Linen Ribbon
  • Twine Baker’s Whisper White
  • All Is Calm Snowflake Embellishment
  • Fast Fuse

Trim the Trees DSP Stack meets Monday Makes

It’s never too early to think about Christmas and getting ready for it. I like to think “start early and be prepared” – that would be nice if it really worked out that way, wouldn’t it? Well Leonie and I decided to share some projects you could make using the Trim The Trees Designer Series Paper Stack (135824 for A$11.95 from the Holiday Catalogue). So, here’s my project:

TrimTheTrees2

I looked at our Tiny Treat Boxes and thought they’d look wonderful dressed up with Trim the Trees DSP. So that’s what I did but added a mat of Sahara Sand card first. Below is a closer view of the front of one of the boxes:

TrimTheTrees3

And the other box

TrimTheTrees4

I used the Cheerful Christmas stamp set for the baubles and coloured them with Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities. I then hand cut the baubles and mounted them on a Scallop punch of Sahara Sand and then a Circle punch of Garden Green card. I added a Rhinestone to the centre and a Linen Thread bow to finish off the embellishment.

The drawers are held together with the Cherry Cobbler Chevron Ribbon

TrimTheTrees6

PRODUCTS USED:

  • DSP – Trim The Trees DSP Stack
  • Tiny Treat Boxes
  • Cheerful Christmas Stamp Set
  • Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities
  • Sahara Sand Card; Whisper White Card; Garden Green Card
  • Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad
  • Cherry Cobbler 3/4″ Chevron Ribbon; Linen Thread
  • 1″ Circle Punch; 1 1/4″ Circle Punch; 7/8″ Scallop Circle Punch
  • Rhinestone Basic Jewels Embellishments
  • Fast Fuse; Stampin’ Dimensionals

So, I hope you like what I have shared using the Trim The trees DSP stack. It’s a great little paper stack with many uses. It’s a great size for making small Christmas Bon Bons too. I will be using it again and sharing those projects with you. Don’t forget to visit Leonie’s Stamp A Latte site to see what she has to share. So, if you’d like to purchase the stack, please contact me.

More Perfect Pennants for late Monday Makes

My apologies for being late with this week’s Monday Makes. Sometimes life just gets in the way. Anyway here it is. I’ve continues with the Perfect Pennants stamp set for my shares today. So here’s my first card

20140828_123624

 The inside view

  20140828_123641 I just love our new satin ribbon and the special little In Colour Sequins. On the inside I’ve used the star and inked it once only and stamped it off 3 times to get the graduated effect of colour. Of course you can’t have a naked envelope, so it received the star treatment too. My second card is below:
