Monday Makes meets Kraft Cardstock

For today’s post I decided to use some of the new Kraft Cardstock. You can find it on page 192 of the Annual Catalogue. It’s heavier than the normal card stock and has the natural Kraft colouring. It comes in a pack of 12 sheets which are 30.5cm x 30.5cm each. This is a great size for making 3D or off the page projects and also for scrapbooking projects.

I’m sharing some little boxes I made that fit 2 Ferrero Rochers in them. This idea came from Linda Parker a UK demonstrator. You can see how to make them here.

I cut the template for the boxes first and then stamped the images randomly over the card stock. I also used the scraps of card stock to stamp some extra images for embellishing.

I’ve used a punch to make the window in the front of the box and placed window sheet on the inside to prevent the chocolates from falling out.

These would make great little gifts or thank- yous and are quite quick and easy to make. You can make them in any of the Stampin’ Up! card stock and embellish them whatever way you wish. I like the look of the Kraft card stock and being a heavier weight, it feels a little more sturdy and it gave me the opportunity to use Versamark as a type of water mark stamping on each box.

PRODUCTS USED:

  • Kraft cardstock
  • Window Sheets
  • VersaMark Ink
  • Memento Tuxedo Black Ink
  • Stamps – Petite Petals and Papillon Potpourri
  • Punches – Elegant Butterfly, Bitty Butterfly, Decorative Label and Petite Petal
  • Ribbon – Basic Black 1/8″ Taffeta
  • Pearl Basic Jewels

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

If you’re following the hop, you’ve arrived here from Ann Gerlach’s blog.

Now to share my projects with you, using products from the new catalogue:

Something_For_Baby1

This is meant for decoration only and would be a sweet gift as a congratulations for the birth of a baby. Little pegs could be added to the line to hand ‘dummies’ from and small things could be used to decorate the saucer.

Something_For_Baby2

PRODUCTS USED:

  • Card – Whisper White, Pink Pirouette and Pear Pizzazz
  • Big Shot – Spiral Flower Originals and Baby’s First
  • Punch – Blossom
  • Stamps – Something for Baby
  • Ink – Pink Pirouette
  • Baker’s Twine – Whisper White
  • Pearl Basic Jewels

My next project is a little box made from Whisper White card and designed especially to fit 3″ x 3″ note cards and envelopes. It would make a great gift for someone who likes to add little notes to gifts or send to friends.

All Abloom2

It has 5 little notes cards and envelopes but could easily hold more. The base of the box is lined to hide the pieces holding the box together.

All Abloom4

I made little tags using scrap pieces of the DSP and punches and tied it to the twine holding the box closed.

All Abloom6

PRODUCTS USED:

  • Card – Whisper White
  • DSP – All Abloom DSP Stack
  • Punches – Scallop Oval, Large Oval, Pansy, Petite Petal, Elegant Butterfly and Bitty Butterfly
  • Pearl Basic Jewels
  • Stamps – Lots of Thanks and A Dozen Thoughts
  • Ink – Island Indigo
  • Thick Baker’s Twine – Pistachio Pudding
  • Baker’s Twine – Whisper White

All Abloom3

My last shares are some little boxes made specifically to hold tea light candles. These make great gifts for many different people and for those hard to find an appropriate gift for.

Moonlight1

These are quite quick and easy to make and fit 4 tea light candles, neatly inside. You can make them with or without a window in them and add a gift tag to the ribbon closure.

Moonlight5

I’ve used a couple of punches adhered together to make the gift tags. You could easily add another punch in Whisper White for the giver to write a note on for the recipient.

Moonlight4

You can see on this box I’ve used the double tag and I’ve used a punch to make a window in the box lid revealing the candles. There is window sheet over the punched shape on the inside of the box. You could just as easily place chocolates or other similar items inside the box.

Moonlight6

PRODUCTS USED:

  • Card – Blackberry Bliss and Whisper White
  • DSP – Moonlight DSP Stack
  • Punches – Modern Label, Word Window, Scallop Oval and Large Oval
  • Stamps –  Lots of Thanks and Teeny Tiny Sentiments

Richmond Marketplace Pop Up Stall

Yesterday I spent 12 hours at my Pop Up Stall in Richmond (NSW, Australia) in the Marketplace. I decided to do this to try to broaden my customer base and strengthen my business. I must say a huge thank you to my husband, Bob, whose assistance in packing and unpacking the card and all the various tubs of products and projects that I take with me to these types of events. he was also lovely enough to pop down a few times during the day to give me much-needed rest room breaks. A big thank you as well to Leonie Schroder and Wirg Hampson who also came to visit and help out during the day – it was greatly appreciated.

So I have some photos to share with you of what my stall looked like. The managers of the Richmond Marketplace provided the tables, covers and chairs.

Digi Tuesday

I have a hybrid card to share with you today. Hybrid means I made some of it digitally and the rest traditionally. So here’s my card:

Hybrid_Birthday1

Now I created the front piece on Whisper White in MDS (My Digital Studio) using one of the templates and added the 60 and the silver punched circle with a shadow behind it. I then exported it  in a file format I wanted for ease of printing. I then cut it out and added the Island Indigo mat and adhered that to Brushed Silver Card for the card itself. I did a similar thing on the inside with the Whisper White but used the Project Life Corner Rounder and sponged the edges with Whisper White and added an Island Indigo Candy Dot as well.

Hybrid_Birthday2

Using My Digital Studio to make the invitation and do the wording made the invitation quite easy to do. Adding the traditional elements just stepped the invitation up a notch and didn’t take that long.

Products used:

  • Card – Whisper White, Island Indigo and Brushed Silver
  • Ink – Island Indigo
  • Punch – Corner Project Life
  • Candy Dots – Regals
  • Envelopes – Whisper White C6
  • Stamp Set – Sketched Birthday (for envelope)

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.

Monday Makes meets Blendabilities

Well last week a couple of friends (Leonie Schroder and Wirg Hampson) came to visit and we played with the Blendabilities. It was my first time colouring with them. As I explained to my friends I failed colouring in at school and considering I also taught for close to 40 years, that’s a lot of failure. :)

Blendabilities Now this is a bit of a CASE from a card Wirg showed me she had made, so I thank her for her creative talents. She’s also a great teacher where Blendabilities are concerned.

Products used:

  • Blendabilities – Coastal Cabana
  • Card – Coastal Cabana, Pear Pizzazz and Whisper White
  • Ink – Coastal Cabana and Memento Black
  • Stamps – Blended Bloom and Lots of Thanks
  • Punch – Builder Bird (for the leaves), Project Life Corner Rounder, Word Window and Modern Label

I’ve actually coloured 2 of the flowers and then hand cut each one. I stamped on the whisper white in a random fashion and then used dimensionals under and between the 2 flowers and adhered it to the card front. I stamped the sentiment and punched it out with the Word Window punch and backed it on a piece of card punched with the Modern label Punch. Now the inside of the card is Whisper White with a partial stamp of the Blended Bloom in Coastal Cabana like the envelope.

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you come back again soon to see what else I have to share.
