Tonight the Art with Heart team are sharing creative projects with an Easter theme.
Don’t forget, sale-a-bration ends on March 31st! There is still time to earn free product with purchase or even join our Stampin’ Up! team. Ask any of the girls on the hop for more details.
This is my first Blog Hop with the Art With Heart group.
I haven’t taken part in a Blog Hop in a very long time, so this should be heaps of fun!
I have used the gorgeous Fable Friends stamp set from the Occasions Catalogue, along with the equally gorgeous Gingham Gala Designer Series Paper, to make a card and two cute little “Bag in a Box”.
Bunny has been coloured using ink pads and an aqua painter.
Here is bunny up close.
And the boxes are just so quick and easy to make, using the Envelope Punch Board.
Perfect for a few Easter eggs.
Now it’s time to hop on over to our next participant, the very talented, Tina Gillespie
Thanks for joining us today, and happy hopping!
I found a fabulous tutorial on making these gorgeous little Milk Carton Boxes yesterday. The tutorial is by Sam Hammond Donald, and you can find the link to the video tutorial here.
Definitely check that one out, Sam does some amazing tutorials. Thanks Sam.
So, here is my version…..
I have used the gorgeous Balmy Blue cardstock and then stamped butterflies from Butterfy Gala stamp set and some flowers from the Happy Birthday stamp set, also in Balmy Blue. And finished it off with a tiny peg that I had in my stash.
They are just the right size to fill up with some chocolates, or some little Easter Eggs…. Hmmmmm…… Easter Eggs.
I may have to make another one of these for Easter inspiration 🙂
I am keeping busy at present, making Christmas goodies for the upcoming Christmas markets in a month’s time here in Cooma.
I have made some of these cute little boxes that perfectly hold 2 Ferrero Rocher chocolates.
If you are interested in making some, I found the youTube tutorial by Linda Parker here:
Here’s a closer look:
The Designer Series Paper is a retired one from a few years ago, but lovely traditional Christmas colours! 🙂
Hope you are having a crafty weekend!
New Designer Series Papers = more excuses to make stuff! Right?
Well, ok, who needs excuses….. just had to make some cute little boxes to show off some of the gorgeous new papers!
These boxes use both the Envelope Punch Board, and the Scallop Tag Topper Punch.
This first one combines the Lullaby DSP with some Hello Honey coloured cardstock, some gold Baker’s twine and a tag made from the Occasions stamp set (part of the Everyday Occasions Cardmaking Kit), and the Artisan Label punch.
Here is the box when it is open….
And a close up of the tag.
And a second box, a little bigger, but made in the same way, this time using the absolutely stunning papers from the Gold Soiree DSP. Wouldn’t this make a gorgeous box for a wedding gift?
This box has a layer of Vellum around it, and is tied with some of the gorgeous Gold Ribbon.
Having fun! Hope you are too. 🙂
Using more of the Sweet Sorbet Designer Series Paper today, and of course my fabulous Envelope Punch Board, to create another cute gift set.
The card also features the Love You More stamp set (#131853 Clear, #131850 Wood), which is available during the “Whole Lot of Love” promotion until the 27th January 2014 or until sold out. And while this set is a Valentine‘s set, I think this particular one has a whole lot of other uses! 🙂
And I have lined one of the standard white Stampin’ Up! envelopes with the papers to match the set.
This cute little pouch can be made in a number of different sizes using the same sized piece of patterned paper, just changing where the punches are made to create the different sizes and shapes. It just uses a belly band around to keep the pouch closed, but is so quick and easy to make – perfect for those last minute gifts.
The idea came from a fellow demonstrator from the UK Michelle Last, you can see her blog and video on how to make the pouches here. Thanks for sharing Michelle, love how simple and easy your instructions are.
Hope you are celebrating the holiday season with some crafting time too!
Slightly belated, but I hope each and every one of you had a wonderful Christmas Day.
Here is a little bit of Christmas creativity to share with you, before I move onto something different in a later post.
As much as I love Christmas, it is such a crazy time of year that I find myself looking forward to the slower more laid back days which follow it, and find myself wanting to move forward.
So stay tuned for another post to follow shortly with something completely new!
Just wanted to share a gorgeous little box which I made using the Sent With Love papers.
I just love this bundle…. the papers are bright and cheery, the stamp set is very versatile and of course if you bundle it with the Baker’s Twine you get 20% off, but it’s only available until the 15th June.
I love it so much that I think I will be making some note cards to go in this box, so stay tuned.
And did you know that you can also get them in Digital format through My Digital Studio? That’s right, in fact this box is actually an MDS template which is also available.
They can all be ordered through my Stampin’ Up! site, or send me an email and let me know what it is you want to order or any questions you might have.
Hope that you’ve all been enjoying the gorgeousness of the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue. The Holiday Catalogue also went live on the 1st of September, but we thought we’d give you a couple of weeks to get into it before we bombarded you with the beautiful things the Holiday Catalogue brings!!!
So another Artful Stampers Hop ~ this time to celebrate the Holiday Catalogue Launch!
You may have hopped here from Melissa at Bee Devine Designs
, but if you are just starting here, keep hopping on through. I’m stop 4 on the Hop and I’m glad you’re here sharing in the fun!!There are lots of gorgeous Christmas goodies in the Holiday Catalogue, but I thought I would showcase something different. So, my projects for today all use the Orchard Harvest
suite on pages 28-30 of the Holiday
Catalogue. I am making these for my sister, who has a property with heaps of apple trees. Eventually they want to open a cidery, so I thought I should keep her inspired with these gifts. She doesn’t spend much time on her computer, so here’s hoping she won’t check out my blog and see them before she gets them!!I have used the Orchard Harvest patterned papers and the Perfectly Preserved Stamp Set for the card and the cute little box. The box also uses the Cannery Set Framelits Dies which match the Perfectly Preserved stamp set. Love how Stampin’ Up! match everything up. These also come as a bundle to save you even more money! Love it!
And I have made a Lavender Bag and Coaster, both of which use the Orchard Harvest Designer Fabric. Unfortunately the fabrics didn’t have apples on them, so I had to use pears instead!
I have a few other things to make to add to this collection, but I have been away for the last few days so haven’t had a chance to get it all done. But I’ll share them all with you before I send them off to my sister.
Yes, I have been making lots of boxes with the scoring tool. Can’t help myself… the tool makes it all so easy!
I have made this slider box to hold four tealight candles, and used the new Framelits to create a clear window so that you can see the candles inside. I am going to make a stack of these to sell at the next markets stall in a couple of weeks time, they would make a lovely Mother’s Day gift.
Cheerful Treat is the name of the DSP, and I have combined it with Concord Crush cardstock. You could add more decoration to this, of course, perhaps a flower and a tag, or a lovely piece of matching ribbon around the box.
I whipped up these boxes this afternoon to go with the card from my previous post. The boxes will be part of a gift for someone special whose birthday is coming up soon.
Boxes are so quick and easy with the new Simply Scored Scoring Tool.
If you would like to buy one of the Simply Scored Scoring Tools, just get in touch, as long as you live in Australia, I can get one to you. I will also include instructions on how to make boxes with lids that fit, some hints and tips and also a pre cut and scored box for you to make so that you see how it all fits together and make yourself a box. So just drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, if you live in the Adelaide area and would like to attend a class and be taught how to make boxes and lots more as well as how to use the Simply Scored and other tools, also send me an email.
Hope you are having a crafty Sunday. Happy Stamping!
