For the CHRISTMAS BOX you will need one piece of card stock and a Designer Series Paper piece

LID Cardstock to measure 7 1/4″ by 8 1/4″

on the 8 1/4 side, score at 1 /2″, 2 6/8″, 5 12/”, 7 6/8″

on the 7 1/4″ side, score at 2 1/4″, 5″, 7 2/8″

BOTTOM Cardstock to measure 8 1/8″ by 6 7/8″

on the 8 1/8″ side, score at 1/2″, 2 3/4″, 5 3/8″, 7 5/8″

on the 6 7/8″ side, score at 2 1/8″, 4 6/8″

Someone also suggested to punch out with a 1/2″ Circle Punch on the lid to make it easier to lift the lid from the bottom of the box, that is a great idea, as suction will hold it closed a bit. Just be sure you punch on the side that DOES NOT have the flaps holding the box together.

I will do this and add a pic as well.

Christmas blog hop, Stampin’ Up! November









Hi Stampers!

Welcome to our Stamp It Group CHRISTMAS Blog Hop!!

I hope you will come away with so much inspiration and so many ideas, you forget to do your chores today 🙂

The project I designed today is actually one I just recently pulled out and decided I would redo it again, but until late yesterday , I had no idea I would use it for this blog hop.

It is so simple, fun and easy to create I figured it would be a huge hit to make for so many people in out lives. Especially at this giving time of year, when little things mean so much more than we know.

These would be super gift to give to your kids teachers, your daycare people, mom friends at school…..the list could go on and on. Lots of people might really want to give a little thank you note but not have the time or energy to get or make one, so you could save the day by gifting them this little box of goodies.

Its a simple design, you need a fun 8 1/2″ by 11″ piece of card stock. I would suggest using Thick Whisper White or Thick Very Vanilla as they are quite sturdy and will score and hold shape so well.

Then you can decorate with your choice of Designer Series Paper, or even some thinlits or edgelits as I have shown in the many examples.

You can also make the cards as simple or intricate as you’d like. You can decorate the fronts with 2 3/4″ square pieces of DSP, strips of Washi Tape, a Sentiment punched out and layered on another larger Punch, and so many more.

I hope you’ll give them a try and don’t be like me, give them out and share with someone you love and appreciate this holiday season!

Make sure to leave a comment along with #stampitcontest to be entered to win!

 

Measurements:

On the 8 1/2″ side, score at 1″ on each end

On the 11″ side, score at 1″ and 4″ on each side, you will end up with a 1″ score in the center if you do it correctly.

DSP Layers:

For the top of the box, you will need a piece of DSP measuring 3 7/8″ by 6 3/8″, two of each measuring 3/8″ by 6 3/8″ and 3/8″ by 3 7/8″ for the long front layers and two side layers.

The rest is up to you.

You could stamp a sentiment on Whisper White and punch it out with the 2″ Circle Punch, then punch a Starburst circle with Copper, Silver or Gold Foil paper. Make sure you give it some flair by tying a length of ribbon to hold it closed and add a small bow. Make it just loose enough that they can slide it off and back on and add some sparkle with the Silver Sequin trim.

Make it more rustic by adding Burlap Ribbon, a bow made of Copper Trim and then finish it by wrapping a Boxwood Wreath around the bows.

They may not even want to open it……but they will 🙂

 

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Stampin’ Blends review, Stampin’ Up!

Hi Stampers!

I created this fun card yesterday while explaining some things I discovered about the all new Stampin’ Blends, which will be available for purchase in my online store starting November 1, 2017. Click the link to SHOP NOW.

I tried the new blends out on Whisper White card stock, Vellum paper and Window Sheets. I used Memento ink for all of them and then I colored them in a few differnet ways to see which worked and how to make some work.

See the video below for all of the info.

The card I made was a Joy Fold card, and is very simple to create and also super easy to make into most any theme, style or color scheme:)

Measurements:

You can use a sheet of 8 1/2″ by 11″ and make two card bases and then add in the other part, or make one from a full sheet.

Base 4 1/4″ by 11″, score at 5 1/2″ 2 3/4″

Inside Base 3 3/4″ by 7 1/2″, score at 3 3/4″

Layers for the main base
1 piece 4″ by 5 1/4″, I used DSP

2 pieces 4″ by 2 1/2″, again I used DSP

Layers for Inside Base
2 pieces 3 1/2″ by 3 1/2″, I used Whisper White to be able to stamp my images and sentiments.

In this version, I fussy cut an ornament from the Season of Whimsy to hold the card closed, pretty fun idea!

 

Until next time,

Stay Crafty

Bendi card with Magical Mermaid & Father Christmas, Stampin’ Up!

I added stoppers to keep it bent, this one is the holly sprig on the left
I added a Holly sprig on the inside as well to hlep keep the bend with a stopper
Close up of the stopper
My 1st Bendi card ever

 

A beautiful greeting thanks to the Ready for Christmas stamp set
stands up all on its own!
No stoppers on this version, I will update on how it holds up being mailed

Hi Stampers!

As a follow up to the Facebook LIVE I did earlier today, I added a few “stoppers” to hold the bend parts in place. I stamped a Holly Spring in Always Artichoke and colored it in with Garden Green and Old Olive, did the berries in Real Red, sponged it with Crumb Cake ink and fussy cut it out. I added two dimesionals to the back and attached one to the front panel and one to the inside card to hold the second panel. This was after a questions from a live viewer who asked if the ned would hold up after mailing. I mailed one of the cards out today, and I will let you know how it holds up without these added “stoppers”.

I also forgot to mention and I don’t know how I forgot, because I add Wink of Stella to EVERYTHING, that I added Wink to Santa, the tree and his bag. It makes it so much more magical of a card.

Again, you can add a regular A4 card panel and attach the car to that, but this card stands perfectly well without it, and that way you can make more cards with less sheets of card stock…..WIN WIN!!!!

Cherry Cobbler version is smaller the the original version I made the first time, I cut it down a bit to show more of Santa when it is open

Cherry Cobbler panel : 4 1/4″ by 5 1/2″, score at 1/2″ on 5 1/2″ side

Very Vanilla layers: 4″ by 5 1/4″, you will need two

Cherry Cobbler panels: 5 1/4″ by 2 1/4″ and 5 1/4″ by 1 1/2″, score at 1/2″ on 5 1/2″ side

Very Vanilla layers: 4 5/8″ by 2 1/8″ and 4 5/8″ by  1 3/8″

Scraps of Very Vanilla if you want to add Holly Sprig “stoppers”

If you have a question, or need a catalog, shoot me an email at Rachthestamper@gmail.com

Until next time,

Stay Crafty!!

XOXO Rach
