Hot Dog Birthday

If you love dogs, if you love coloring, if you love coloring cute dogs you need to add the Hot Dog Set to you wishlist.  This set is so cute!  It comes with so many images you can customize the dog to your preferences!  This adorable card was made for my daughters friend.  She celebrated her birthday last month and this was the card we gave her.  My daughter and her friend love dogs and spend a great deal of everyday talking about dogs.  I knew this card would be a hit.  I kept the layers simple but wanted to add an additional frame around the card so I used the paw print stamp image and made a simple frame.  This might be my favorite part of the card!  

stampin' up, hot dog

I colored my dog in Stampin' Blends keeping a soft color palette.  To make the dog pop I used my Pool Party Light to go around the outside of the image.  It's hard to see in the pictures but in real life the dimension that that simple step adds is amazing!  The greeting is heat embossed in white on Cinnamon Cider Cardstock.  To finish off the greeting layer I added a bone from the Pets Trinkets and some matching Magenta Madness Twine.  This twine was in my stash from a past Paper Pumpkin kit.  Just another reason to subscribe, all the left over embellishments you can use on other projects! I have a full supply list below, you can shop for these products in my Online Store.

Wildly Happy Bunny Slider-VIDEO

I have a super cute treat to share with you today!  Last week I stocked up on lots of different Easter chocolates and I'll have lots to share over the next few weeks.  This one was one of my first ideas and even before I left the store I was thinking of ways to make this.  Inside is Hershey's cookies and cream chocolate bunny.  I got mine at Walmart but I bet they have these everywhere.  I knew I wanted a slider for this bunny but I wanted the slider to be super special, not just your typical slider.

This box is lined with a super cute slider sleeve and in that sleeve is the chocolate bunny.  I love it!  I think it's different and fun and super cute!!  I pulled in three sets from the Annul Catalog for this one.  I'm using Wildly Happy for the bunnies, Arrange a Wreath for the eggs and Timeless Tulips for the greeting.  The Arrange a Wreath set also has an Easter greeting so you could use that one too.

Blending Roses

I have a gorgeous card to share today!  I'm using the Brushed Blooms Bundle for this card.  I love the dies and how you can layer up a realistic looking rose.  I started with layering up some color cardstock, but the colors were too bold and harsh so instead I used my blending brushes.  I started with some Basic White Cardstock and blending my inks from light to dark leaving plenty of room to cut out two of each flower. I loved doing it this way because instead of getting each layer a different color, you get blended transformations into each layer.  Some of the layers have multiple colors where the colors blended together and that's ok!  It adds to the details.  
stampin' up, brushed blooms

For the pink flowers I blending Blushing Bride>Flirty Flamingo>Melon Mambo.  For the yellow ones I blended So Saffron>Daffodil Delight>Mango Melody.  For my leaves I only used two colors Pear Pizzazz>Granny Apple Green.  Once your satisfied with the coloring it's time to cut them out with the dies.  I added Adhesive Sheets on the back of my ink blended pieces to make layering the flowers easier.  Don't forget to add those Adhesive Sheets.  It will save you tons of time in the long run!  To finish my card I added some Linen Thread and some Flowers For Every Season Gems.  I have a full supply list below, you can shop for all of these products in my Online Store.

Dragonfly Garden Chocolate Book-VIDEO

Boy do I have a cute project for you today!  I have been thinking about making a box like this for a couple week.  I love the idea of a box with a book opening and there's chocolate in there!  How fun is that?!  I'm using the Dragonfly Garden Bundle from the Mini Catalog.  This is one that I haven't pulled out much, it's not really my style, BUT every time I use it I LOVE it!  So lesson, don't judge a book by it's cover......unless it's adorable chocolate book like this one!  I do love the greetings in this set.  The font is gorgeous!  I used the coordinating Dandy Garden DSP from the suite.  Even the dragonfly is punched straight from the DSP.  If you were making a bunch of these though I think I'd stamp my dragonfly instead.  

stampin up, dragonfly garden, dandy garden

I'm calling this a chocolate book because as you can see from the side there's two separate boxes in there.  The ribbon unties and the entire box opens like a book!  So fun!!  For my base I used Misty Moonlight to coordinate with the DSP.  To tie my box closed I used the Flowers For Every Season Ribbon Pack, the white pattern.  This is a nice thick ribbon and perfect for this use.  I kept mine tied with a knot but you could do a bow too.  I added a little Linen Thread to the greeting, because I have that bow, I was ok with the knot on the side.  

stampin up, dragonfly garden, dandy garden

The box is easy to make.  I'm leaving the measurements here but make sure you check out the video for all the details on this box.  
Box base: 6 1/4" x 2", on the long side score at 2 3/4" and 3 1/2"
Chocolate Pockets (two) 2 5/8" x 3 3/4", score 3 sides at 1/2" and 7/8" (the long side will have both ends scored, while the short side only has one end scored)
DSP-front 2 5/8" x 1 7/8", inside (two) 1 7/8" x 1 5/8", chocolate wrappers (two) 1 3/4" x 4 1/2"
I have a full supply list below. You can shop for all of these products in my online store.  Check the video for the details on the box.

Trifold Window Card

This is it!!!  We're in the final days of Sale-a-Bration!!  If you haven't gotten your Sale-a-Bration items on your wishlist don't wait another second!  Sale-a-Bration ends in four days on February 28, 2021.  After that these amazing Sale-a-Bration items will be gone.  Get them today!!  I have another tri fold card to share with you today.  I've shared a few fun fold cards featuring the amazing Sale-a-Bration paper.  With the Flower and Field Sale-a-Bration DSP I shared this angled tri fold card.  I shared this fun gatefold card with the Paper Blooms DSP.  Finally, also with the Paper Blooms DSP I shared this pocket card.  Today I have one more to share with you.  I'm sharing a trifold window card. This is a your basic trifold card but there's a window in the first panel.  It's a fun and different way to showcase amazing DSP and some fun elements.  

stampin' up, paper blooms, in bloom

For this first card I paired up the In Bloom Bundle with the Paper Blooms DSP.  I'm also using the Sale-a-Bration stamp set Heal Your Heart.  This set has some amazing greetings and just look at that amazing font!  I love that the greeting is on the second panel.  It makes for a really fun and interactive card.  

stampin' up, paper blooms, in bloom

I also used the same supplies simply switching up my stamp set and DSP to make another cute trifold window card.  This time I'm using the Berry Blessings Bundle that you can earn free during Sale-a-Bration.  I also pulled in my Sweet Strawberry set for a greeting.  

stampin up, berry blessings

To make the trifold window card you'll need a card base that is 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and some DSP that is 5 1/4" x 12", score it at 4" and 8" on the long side.  Cut a window in the first panel.  I also framed my windows by making a frame with two dies from the Stitched Shapes Dies.  I cut the largest and 2nd largest circles together to make the sweet frame.  You can add some white cardstock to the inside of the card to finish it off and to have a place to write a message.  I'd love to know if you liked the Paper Blooms or Berry Blessings Card more.  I love them both!  I have a full supply list below. You can shop for all of these products in my Online Store.

3D Sweet Strawberry

If you haven't picked up the Sweet Strawberry Bundle yet, what are you waiting for!  This bundle was on the top of my wishlist and I'm so glad I got it.  I've loved everything made with it, but mostly I love the greetings.  They're fun, versatile and I love the font.  For this card I wanted to make a fun and simple card with a 3D strawberry.  

stampin up, sweet strawberry

This fun 3D strawberry is really the star of the show.  I stamped and punched three strawberries.  I stamped in Merry Merlot Ink on Rococo Rose Cardstock.  After they were punched I folded each strawberry down the middle then adhered them together, so they popped up.  I added the stem and adhered the entire thing to my card.  The card will fold flat for mailing.  It's so cute!  I have a full supply list below.  You can shop for all of these products in my Online Store.

Sale-a-Bration Saturday Berry Blessing Bundle

Today for Sale-a-Bration Saturday I’m sharing a cute and quick box featuring the Berry Blessing Bundle which is a FREE Sale-a-Bration item with a qualifying purchase.  There are only DAYS left of Sale-a-Bration!  If you haven't already gotten your Sale-a-Bration items time is running out!  Don't wait!  The Berry Blessings Bundle has been one of my FAVORITES!!!  You can see a couple more example of projects with this bundle on my blog:
Berry Cereal Box
Strawberry Box
This bundle includes the Berry Blessings Stamp Set and the Berry Delightful DSP.  I love them both!!  They work so perfectly with the Sweet Strawberry Bundle in the Mini Catalog.  Together all three products are made for each other!   

stampin up, berry blessings

For our box, we’re getting a head start with the Love You Always Treat Boxes in the Mini. I think we're always so quick to recreate a fun box but in doing so we forget about the boxes that Stampin' Up! has provided.  They're amazing too!  With a little TLC, we can turn it into something amazing!  

The DSP is trimmed to 4”x10” and two pieces that are 2 ½” x 1 3/8” for the box. 

Make sure you check out the video for all the details on this project.  I have a full supply list below, you can shop for all of these products in my Online Store, today!
