I say adapted, but the only thing I added to this great kit was the Pistachio Pudding and Smoky Slate card bases, and a piece of Whisper White for the inside. The kit comes with the beautiful laser cut white pieces and is designed as a postcard greeting. If you want a full card, as I did, all you do is add the cardstock base in the color of your choice.
I stamped the greeting in Smoky Slate ink. All the other elements of the card, the ribbons, rhinestones, and heart decals, all come in the kit.
The kit even comes with matching envelopes that have fun polka dot insides!
So visit my on line store and buy this fun kit and matching stamps so you can make some elegant cards fast when the need arises!
Thanks to my super awesome wonderful customers and my amazing Stampfield Stars team of demonstrators, I earned the Stampin' Up! Getaway to sunny San Diego! And since my Minnesota Viking obsessed husband can't spare a weekend away during football season (love ya honey) I get to share this fun mini break adventure with my sweet 12 year old boy! Stampin' Up! is jetting us off to San Diego, putting us up in a posh hotel, and footing the bill for meals and such! I'm super excited!! A HUGE thank you to all my customers and demonstrators for giving me this opportunity for a memorable mother and son trip of a lifetime!
I just love pretty packaging - don't you?! I think the package or presentation should be even better then the gift inside! Several of the new products in the Holiday Catalog make pretty packaging easier then ever! These gifts were for some of the demonstrators on my Stampfield Stars team who shared at my demonstrator Stamp Share yesterday - and they were quick and easy to make! I used the Decorative Window Gift Boxes from the Holiday Catalog (which are food safe and the perfect size for a cookie!):
The boxes are 4" x 4" and 1 1/2" deep so they are a great size for lots of things! And then I added the bow:
I used the new Stampin' Up!® Gift Bow Digz L Die for the Big Shot and the Season of Style Designer Paper Stack. to add some extra dimension to the tails of the bow, I creased them in the center leaving just the end that goes under the bow uncreased.
I assembled the bow with Glue Dots and used Sticky Strip to attach it to the box. Quick but oh so pretty!!
The bow die makes bows in 2 sizes, this is the small, single layer bow. Here is a picture of all the parts the die makes:
Have fun creating your own bows! Here are the supplies for this project:
The Mini Muslin Bag project was a lot of fun to do, too. To get a perfectly crisp image, I heat embossed the star with Gold Stampin’ Emboss Powder onto parchment paper, then ironed it onto the muslin bag. It does take the shine off of the embossing powder, but it guarantees a perfect image and perfect placement every time.
The Magnificant Maple single stamp from the Holiday Catalog is such a beautiful, deeply etched stamp. It really looks fabulous any way that you stamp it! I went with natural elements on this card - I think it would work well for a "guy" card. I used Gorgeous Grunge with the VersaMark pad to add texture and interest to the card - it added a very "woodgrain" look!
So I think I mentioned in my last post that I still have stuff leftover in my Paper Pumkin Welcome Kit after making those projects. Well, I couldn't just let those pieces sit there!! So here are two more cards I created by using some of the my other supplies!
