So for the final week of the December design team I wanted to do another 3D project but keep it simple.

temp

I made this bag using one piece of Designer Series Paper. I chose the Pick a Pattern set and used the sheet that had an art theme to it.

I scored the paper at 3″, then turned the paper 180 degrees and scored again at 3″. I turned the paper 90 degrees and scored at 3/4″ and 4 1/2″ and as before turned it at 180 degrees and scored at 3/4″ and 4 1/2″. I folded the 3/4″ line backwards and glued it into place on both sides.

Then using the side panel I folded it back to the edge so I could create a diagonal line and then repeated this on the other 3 sides. I then glued the sides together at the top and punched holes through on both sides. I threaded ribbon and tied it together to create handles.

I stamped the sentiment on Whisper White cardstock and cut it out with Everyday label punch and then cut another out of Flirty Flamingo cardstock. I glued these together and added Rhinestones to the front. I punched a small hole at the top and threaded Whisper White Bakers twine through and tied this onto the ribbon.

Well that’s it, I hoped you liked my project for this week, dont forget to check out the other designs from my team.

Until next time…

This week I decided to do a 3D project. With christmas coming up its perfect for a little stocking filler.

temp

The box size is 5 1/2″ x 2 5/8″

I used a piece of Bermuda Bay cardstock that I cut to 6 1/2″ x 6 3/8″. On the long edge I scored it at 1/2″, 3″, 3 1/2″ and 6″. On the short edge I scored it at 1/2″ and 5 7/8″.

I cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock to 5 1/4″ by 2 3/8″. Using the scissor stamp I repeatedly stamped using Memento ink in Tuxedo Black. I adhered this to the box with Fast Fuse.

I took a scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock and stamped the scissor image with the same ink as before. Once dry I coloured it in with Bermuda Bay and Smoky Slate Blends. I fussy cut it out and added cut up Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I cut a scalloped oval from Bermuda Bay cardstock with Layering Ovals Framelits and a smaller oval from Whisper White which I stamped a sentiment on to it & added the scissor topper.

I tied a piece of ribbon around the box with a bow and added the completed topper to just the ribbon with more Stampin’ Dimensionals.

This box is perfect for Stampin’ Up! Snips but can also be used for lots of little things including a few notecards and envelopes.

 

Well that’s it, I hoped you liked my project for this week, I’m really looking forward to sharing next weeks project with you.

Until next time…

This week I wanted to use a colour that I hadn’t used very much so I chose Fresh Fig. I love this colour but its not my ‘go to’ colour (after this it will be moved into that category)

I decided on a simple design this week. I chose to use the Stitched Shapes Framelits as I thought it would give a ‘creative’ touch. I used the Layering Circles Framelits to cut the image out and the corresponding size and shape of the Stitched Shapes to layer behind it.

I made a card base from Fresh Fig and added a layer of Whisper White which was cut slightly smaller than the card base. I added the stamped images to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals and then I stamped the sentiment with Basic Black archival ink.

To complete the card I coloured a few rhinestones with the Rich Razzleberry Blends pen in the dark shade and added them to the card.

Well that’s it, I hoped you liked my project for this week, I’m really looking forward to sharing next weeks project with you.

Until next time…

14088395_10153745365531603_281310922678395855_n

When I saw this set in the annual catalogue I loved it but never got around to actually buying it so when it arrived on my doorstep I was so excited! When I started playing with it I realised I had losts of ideas, however when it came to doing the actual project I had lost my crafting mojo as I was, and still am, full of cold. This isn’t the project I had planned but I’m really pleased with it and what I’ve learned is don’t give up if you are struggling. So here’s my project for week 1.

temp

I started this card using Stampin’ Markers but then remembered I still hadn’t used my Stampin’ Blends. So I redid it and preferred the final look of the pens.

I used a piece of Whisper White cardstock, which I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink, using the trio of pens image.

I coloured them in using the dark and light Night of Navy and Old Olive pens and then I used the dark Cherry Cobbler and dark Pink Piroeutte pens for the final pen. For the ‘metal work’ of the pens I used dark and light Smoky Slate pens.

Using the Lots of Labels Framelits I cut the pen image from the third largest die, then using the next two larger dies, I cut out one from Smoky Slate and Basic Black cardstock respectively.

On the Basic Black cut out, I adhered a piece of Silver 1/8″ ribbon to the front. I added Stampin’ Dimensionals to the back of the stamped image and adhered this to the Smoky Slate layer. I then used Fast Fuse to adhere to the Basic Black layer.

I cut a card base from Melon Mambo and then added a mat from the Naturally Eclectic Designer series paper. I chose to use the blue design as I thought this would compliment the colour scheme best. I adhered this and the topper to the card base with Fast Fuse.

For the sentiment I used Flourishing Phrases stamp set. I used a scrap of Basic Black and heat embossed the sentiment with Versamark and white embossing powder. I used the Everyday Label punch to cut it out and then punched it again further down to make a smaller image, again I adhered this with Fast Fuse and added a bow with a mini glue dot.

Well that’s it, I hoped you liked my project for the first week, I’m really looking forward to sharing next weeks project with you.

Until next time….
