Be Merry D.S.P. Treat Holder

Today’s post is all about a Be Merry D.S.P. Treat Holder. This little treat holder is very quick and easy and uses the Be Merry Designer Series Paper.  Be Merry just so happens to be one of the many you may choose for FREE when you purchase 3 packs of designer Series Paper from the Annual and/or Holiday Catalogues. See below for more details. So onto today’s Be Merry D.S.P. Treat Holder project:

Be Merry D.S.P. Treat Holder

You would get a few of these out of one sheet of Designer Series Paper and they could look different with different ribbon or trim and use both sides of the D.S.P. to create that difference. Here’s another look at the sample:

Global Design Project #GDP108

This week at Global Design Project #GDP108 it is CASE (Copy And Share Everything) the designer, Brian King. It’s a great design to CASE and I decided to make a non-traditional Christmas Card. Here’s Brian’s design:

Global Design Project #GDP108

I decided on Lemon Lime Twist and Powder Pink with the Year of Cheer Designer Series Paper. I added some Rhinestones as well. Let me know what you think.

Global Design Project #GDP108 a

I’ve used the Layering Squares Framelit dies for the sentiment piece and I decided I didn’t min these non-traditional colours, so I went with a non- traditional background paper as well in the Designer Series paper I chose. I decided I love this stamp set.

Global Design Project #GDP108 b

Little Gift Box

Today’s post brings you a Little Gift Box which is made using the Envelope Punch Board. I haven’t used my Envelope Punch Board in quite some time and it shows in the video :). So, I decided to dust it off, so to speak, and make this Little Gift Box. This Little Gift Box would be great to use for a small gift for any occasion, however today i make it for Christmas.

Little Gift Box

These boxes are quick and easy and can be made from Designer Series Paper or Card Stock. Just make sure you have an Envelope Punch Board. It can be used not just for envelopes but for treat pouches and boxes as well. Watch the video to see how I made this box today:

Did you learn something from this video? If so, please subscribe to my YouTube Channel.
Thank you for subscribing. I appreciate your support.

Little Gift Box Measurements

  • Card/D.S.P. should measure 5 1/8″ x 5 1/8″ or 12.9 cm x 12.9 cm
  • 1st punch is at 1 /8″ or 4.6 cm
  • 2nd punch is at 3 1/4″ or 8.2 cm
  • Ribbon – enough to tie around the box

Remember to make the bottom you need to increase your 1st and 2nd punch measurements by a small amount say about 1/16″ or 0.02 cm. The bottom needs to be slightly smaller than the top.

Little Gift Box 1

Next Video will be a larger box using Designer Series paper, so op back then for more on the Envelope Punch Board.

Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop – 4-for-1 Masked Cards

Welcome to another Latte Girls Freshly Brewed Blog Hop doing 4 for 1 Masked Cards this week and I think you’ll be surprised at the creative projects we share. Make sure you check the other blogs in the hop:

Now, as the theme suggests we use one mask and create four cards from it. I watched Jennifer McGuire’s video on this technique. Looked easy, however I struggled to find the right stamp set. Hard to believe isn’t it? Anyway I decided to make my cards from Very Vanilla Card Stock and I used the Layering Oval Framelit Die set.

Freshly Brewed Blog Hop doing 4 for 1 Masked Cards

So, here are my project for today:

Freshly Brewed Blog Hop doing 4 for 1 Masked Cards

This technique relies on masking but in this case we’re using our mask and the negative space it creates to create our cards. I cut 4 card bases and 1 card front which measured 9.5cm x 13.8cm. From this I cut an oval which you can see above.

Freshly Brewed Blog Hop doing 4 for 1 Masked Cards 3

This card shows the negative space created when you take the ‘mask’ or the oval out. I used some snail and took some of it’s tackiness away to make it a repositionable tape. Placing the card front and oval on the first card base and then removed the card front just leaving the oval.

Freshly Brewed Blog Hop doing 4 for 1 Masked Cards 4

Above is a closer look at the negative space as a mask. I then placed the card front on another card base. So that was 2 cards I was going to stamp on.

Freshly Brewed Blog Hop doing 4 for 1 Masked Cards 2

When you take the mask, in this case the negative space, away you are left with the card above to which I added ribbon and Pearls.

Freshly Brewed Blog Hop doing 4 for 1 Masked Cards 3

This is the other card which is revealed when you take the mask away. I added Rhinestones to this card.

All cards had some sort of embellishment added whether ribbon and or rhinestones or pearls and all had a brush with Clear Wink of Stella.

Now make sure you stop by the other blogs in the Freshly Brewed Blog Hop doing 4 for 1 Masked Cards and leave a comment. Come back next week and I’ll be giving away some Blog Candy to one luck Australian who leaves a comment.

Christmas Gift Bag

Today’s Video tutorial is a Christmas Gift Bag made with the Gift Bag Punch Board.

However, the offer is only available until 31st October 2017. So don’t hesitate, get in quickly with those orders. So this is the pack I used:

2nd Annual Pink Blog Hop

It’s my great pleasure to be involved in the 2nd Annual Pink Blog Hop this year/. I have 2 dear friends and my Brother In Law battling various cancers at the moment and I know their struggle is a difficult one. My prayers and thoughts are constantly with them. I try to send my friends an uplifting card each week as I  now live quite some distance away from them.  Being an Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator gives me the products and inspiration to be able to send these cards and it’s a real blessing to be able to do this.

2nd Annual Pink Blog Hop Projects

2nd Annual Pink Blog Hop Projects 1

I’ve used two of the 2017 – 2019 In Colors to create this card. Berry Burst and Powder Pink are a great ‘pink’ combination. The Ribbon Of Courage Bundle (stamp set and framelits are 10% when bundled) is a great bundle to use for the 2nd Annual Pink Blog Hop Projects. I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig to stamp the row of flowers in Berry Burst.

2nd Annual Pink Blog Hop Projects 2

The hearts act as a closure for this flap card with the two outside hearts and small hearts all adhered with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I’ve used the Stitched Shapes Framelits and the Layering Ovals for the sentiment piece. There are a number of lovely sentiments in the set but I chose this one and stamped it in Berry Burst.

2nd Annual Pink Blog Hop Projects 3

Now the inside of the card and the outside of the envelope didn’t escape my attention. Both have had Fresh Florals designer Series paper added to them. I chose the Powder Pink and used both sides of the same sheet.

This isn’t the usual Quick & Easy Card Tutorial, however I have done a FREE download for you today – Ribbon Of Courage Faith Card
