Stampin’ Up! Snail Mail Treat Box

Good morning! I had so much fun playing with my Paper Pumpkin kit and the Add On Little Love Boxes yesterday that I needed to extend it for another day and make a big treat box! I used the Stampin’ Up! Snail Mail designer series paper with the Love You Always treat boxes to make a larger sized Valentine box for chocolates that coordinates with my little love boxes! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I assembled the Love You Always Treat box and slid the cover on. I adhered the Stampin’ Up! Snail Mail panels to the Poppy Parade panels and adhered them to the top and sides of the outer box.

I punched a Pool Party heart and stamped the sentiment from the January Paper Pumpkin kit to the label from the kit and adhered it to the heart. I die cut a snail from the Stampin’ Up! Snail Mail DSP with the Snail Dies and cut a backing from Basic White. I adhered them together with liquid glue and popped it on the heart with a dimensional.

I popped the heart on the box with dimensionals and finished it with some heart and flower embellishments and a bow – all from the extra supplies in the January Paper Pumpkin kit. And of course I cut a piece of the Pool Party tissue from the Paper Pumpkin kit for a box liner.

The Stampin’ Up! Snail Mail designer series paper goes perfectly with the little snail stamp from the January Paper Pumpkin kit. Doesn’t the box look cute with the Little Love Boxes Paper Pumpkin kit add on (they’re still available in the Online Store) from yesterday ? And the Love you Always treat boxes are bigger, so they will hold more chocolates so you can share!


Join me for a Facebook Live at 1:00 PM ET Today

I’m planning to go live on my Facebook page at 1:00 ET this afternoon. Stop by my Facebook Page to see my card made with the new Friends are Like Seashells bundle. Look forward to seeing you then!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals Holiday Gift Box for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Hello and welcome to the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop! For today’s hop, I used the beautiful Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle with the Wonder of the Season specialty designer series paper and decorated a mini Paper Pumpkin box. You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

We have a theme challenge this week, and here is the theme we are using for our projects:

I covered the top and sides of the mini Paper Pumpkin box with the Wonder of the Season specialty designer series paper matted with Shaded Spruce. I was careful to make sure that the writing was in the correct direction when cutting and adhering to the box. I made a loopy bow with the Shaded Spruce ribbon to tie around the box and it’s loose enough to easily slip on and off.

I made a large red foil poinsettia with the Poinsettia Dies from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle. I used the embossing inserts to cut the petals and gently bent the each petal backwards. I adhered the petal clusters together with glue dots and finished the center with the beaded Pearls.

I cut three poinsettia leaves from green foil and two silver foil berry sprigs using the dies from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals bundle. I used the tag die from the North Pole Wonder Dies to cut a tag from the Wonder of the Season specialty designer series paper and adhered the leaves, berry sprigs and flower to the tag with glue dots.

I looped the trim from the glitter star through thee tag and tied it to the bow. So as the bow is slipped around the box, the tag goes with it.

And of course the inside of the box needs some festive tissue. I stamped a sheet of white tissue paper with the poinsettia from the Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Petals photopolymer stamp set in Real Red and one of the outline holly branches from the Joyful Holly stamp set in Shaded Spruce to finish off the festive mood.

Stampin’ Up! Perfect Parcel Christmas Gift Box Video Tutorial

Good Morning! Today I’m sharing a cute little Christmas gift box made with the Stampin’ Up! Perfect Parcel dies that I made during my Facebook Live video tutorial yesterday afternoon. This die set has been available since last year and now you can update it using products from the August -December 2020 Mini Catalog. You can find the supplies used to create this project at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

Here is the Facebook Live video showing how I made the blue box and snowflake tag:

I also posted the video to my YouTube Channel and you can view it here if you prefer.

I cut two of the box using the box die from the Stampin’ Up! Perfect Parcel Die set from Misty Moonlight card stock. I creased the box along the top and bottom score lines and adhered the box together with tear & tape. See the video for how to apply the tear & tape.

I applied the Snowflake Splendor designer series paper to the side and top box panels and folded the top down, tucking the flaps into the sides. I tied a length of metallic Seaside Spray ribbon around the box. I used the tag topper die from the Stampin’ Up! Perfect Parcel dies to cut the top of the Seaside Spray tag panel and adhered a strip of Snowflake Splendor DSP to the bottom of the tag.

I stamped the sentiment from the Itty Bitty Christmas stamp set in Misty Moonlight ink on a Whisper White panel and cut it out with the label die. I popped the label on the tag with dimensionals. I cut the small snowflake from the So Many Snowflakes dies using Balmy Blue Glimmer paper and the medium snowflake from Misty Moonlight cardstock. I adhered the snowflakes together and adhered them to the tag. I finished the tag with rhinestone gems and used the metallic twine to loop the tag onto the ribbon before tying the bow.

The Stampin’ Up! Perfect Parcel dies makes a really nice little gift box! It’s perfectly sized to hold a gift card or sweets or maybe even handmade jewelry. And it’s perfect for coordinating your card with a fancy box for that extra special gift.

Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style Note Tote

Good Morning! Today I have another project using products from the beautiful new Ornate Garden Suite in combination with the Dressed to Impress Suite. It’s a note tote! I made the sweet little tote bag from the All Dressed Up Dies out of Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper and stuffed it with four 3×3 note cards and envelopes from the Best Dressed Note Cards and Envelopes. The colors go well together and it is way too cute! You can find the supplies used to create this card at the bottom of my post along with the sizes of cardstock used.

I made the All Dressed Up tote in a Sunday afternoon Facebook Live video tutorial and you can see the post here. I made today’s tote in the same way using the Ornate Garden specialty designer series paper – and this sheet has gold foil flowers on the inside – but used Terracotta Tile buttons instead of buckles. I used Early Espresso for the handles and So Saffron for the pocket which I decorated with the small flower cluster from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style cling stamp set and a fussy cut single flower. The single flower is stamped in Early Espresso on Whisper White and colored with Calypso Coral, Flirty Flamingo and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. It is finished with a Metallic Gold pearl to match the gold foil flowers inside the tote.

The Daffodil Delight note cards from the Best Dressed 3×3 Note Cards and Envelopes are perfect to go in the tote and they match the Ornate Garden DSP pretty well. I stamped the daisy flower from the Stampin’ Up! Ornate Style stamp set on four note cards in Early Espresso ink. I also stamped the daisy on the pretty coordinating printed envelopes in Early Espresso ink. I colored each note card flower center with Calypso Coral Stampin’ Write marker and the leaves with the Old Olive Stampin’ Write marker. I did not use Stampin’ Blends because they would have bled through the back and I wanted to keep the cards to a single layer. Do you like how the printed watercolor splash makes the petals look yellow?

I stamped the bottom of each note card with a different saying from the Ornate Thanks photopolymer stamp set in Early Espresso ink. This way you have a coordinating set of note cards that can be used for different occasions! Actually, I stamped the sentiments first so that I could position the flower appropriately relative to the sentiment.

This project really shows off the versatility of all the different sentiments in the Ornate Thanks stamp set and how well this suite can be combines with other Stampin’ Up! products. And I can think of at least one bag in my closet that looks like this one. Unfortunately, it doesn’t have gold foil in the lining.
