Mixed bunch party favor box

Due to some technical difficulties I was not able to post last week when I got home from convention.  But her I am.  It’s been a busy week trying to get caught up.  This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments we have a challenge for party favor boxes.  I had not used the Fancy Favor box in awhile so with summer in full swing here’s a favor for any summer party.

The box is die cut from Cherry Cobbler, the flower image is from the Mixed Bunch set and is stamped on Whisper White with Daffodil Yellow ink then die cut with the Blossom punch.  The center image is also from the Mixed Bunch set and is stamped in Cherry Cobbler ink.  For added sparkle I used Cherry Cobbler Dazzling Details for the center.  The handle was die cut with the Oval Punch then tied with Daffodil Seam binding ribbon.  So simple but this favor would look great on a white plate filled with chocolates.

Stampin’ Up! Vintage Skating Boot Gift Card Holder and Christmas ornament

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments the challenge is Anything Goes Christmas Ornaments.  I love the Stampin’ Up! Holiday Stocking and Stocking Accents dies.  Inspired by the many stockings and boots I’ve seen created with these dies I made this vintage gift card holder.  I used the Snow burst textured folder for the top of the boot and heat embossed it with Iridescent embossing powder.  For the boot part I cut two Old Olive card stock stockings and two of the green print Paisley Petals DSP.  To show the green print on the back you need to flip the paper so the print you want to show both sides are showing when stacked.  I then adhered the DSP to the stockings then embossed with the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder and Big Shot.

The blades are die cut from the Silver shimmery paper using the candy canes from the Stocking Accents die.   You need to cut four, two sets facing one side and the other facing opposite for the back side.  Therefore you need to cut two sets with the glimmer paper up and two sets with the glimmer paper down.  Before I adhered both sides of the boot I sandwiched the blades between the sides of the boot and used Tombow adhesive glue.

I then used some lace trim on the boot and adhered both cuffs to the top of the boot (it would look better if it was SU crochet trim but I ran out) .  For the lacing I made four 3/16″ holes with my Crop-a-dile then used Very Vanilla Satin Ribbon to lace up the boot.  The loop at the top is hemp twine through a  1/8″ hole.  I installed an eyelet for this hole.  I didn’t have any 3/16″ eyelets for the lace holes but it would look even better if I did.

An easy project with so many options for colors.

It’s in the bag

For this week at Hand Stamped Sentiments – Anything but a Card challenge I decided to recreate a purse I saw online.  The purse I saw on Purse Boutique is so cute!  So I thought this purse out of paper would be perfect for a small gift or gift card.  I cut the purse out of Basic Black card stock then ran it through my Big Shot with the Weave Texture plate.  I made the handles out  of braided grosgrain and added the spiral flower to the front.  Easy!  Here’s my inspiration and below it my creation.  I’ll post the template information in the next few days.

Hand Stamped Sentiments – Anything but a Card Challenge 17

This week’s challenge at Hand Stamped Sentiments is Anything but a Card.   I am extending an invitation for you to come join us at HSS and post your creation.  Thanks for visiting!

I have been wanting to use the Daisy die so I created this cute gift box.  The template for this box is here.  I used my Big Shot to die cut the daisies and emboss the box.  I traced the leaves freehand and scored them in the middle.

Hand Stamped Sentiments Anything but a Card challenge 13

This week at Hand Stamped Sentiments the challenge is Anything but a Card.  With Mother’s Day around the corner I decided to decorate a candle.  I used the stamp set With All My Heart.  This stamp set is available until the end of April.  Please email me if you would like to order or simply click on the ‘Shop Now’ icon on the right to place your order online.  To add some bling I inserted the rhinestone brads while the wax was still warm.  Easy Peasy!  Click here for a tutorial from Splitcoaststampers on how to stamp on candles.
