Awesome Gift Box

Hello Stampin’ Friends ~

Today I’d like to share with you a quick -n- easy 3-D project … a gift box! You’ll start with one of our Take Out boxes found on page 151 of our current annual catalog.  (Our new catalogs are on their way!)

You will also need the “Big News” stamp set … I will have our highlighted products listed below so you can see them.

awesome gift box


  1. Wrap a piece of Regals Designer Series Paper around the Takeout Box to create a bellyband.
  2. Cut a piece of White Corrugated Paper using the Fringe Scissors. Adhere the paper to the box.
  3. Stamp the sentiment in VersaMark ink on a piece of Tangerine Tango Cardstock. Cover the stamped words with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder, shake off any excess powder, and heat set.
  4. Punch the two sides of the stamped cardstock using the Ornate Tag Topper Punch.
  5. Thread the Gold 1/8” (3.2 mm) Ribbon through the hole in one side of the cardstock and wrap it around the back side of the box and tie in a bow through the hole on the other side of the cardstock.

I think that is such a cute box to give as a gift. Hope you enjoyed it as well.

Thank you for popping in today …

Hope your day is a good one.

Parade of Cards: Birthday Bash Designer Paper …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

As promised, I’m here today to share some fun cards created with the “Birthday Bash” designer series paper.  I couldn’t fit them all on one post, so I will share 3 with you today and 3 more tomorrow!!

I’m so excited to show you how fun and versatile this Birthday Bash DSP really is….

Let’s start out with a birthday card with party hats! Party hats? Really … Sure! You’re never too old to party! This cute stamp comes from one of our Hostess stamp sets “Let You’re Hair Down”.


I have to show you the inside too because the verse inside is too cute …



My second card is is a banner card, and the greeting comes from the stamp set “Big News”.  How appropriate is that considering you just got a sneak peek at a totally fun new product that will be introduced in the new catalog!  Let me just say this one item “punched” out all three sizes of the banners!


Here’s a peek inside …



My last card for today showcases each side of the same piece of designer paper … I love the two sided paper! The greeting is from the stamp set “Million and One”. I just adore this font, and so sad this set will be retiring in only a few more days!


The current catalog sales period ends on June 2nd … so as much as we are sad to say goodbye to some of our favorites, you are going to be just as excited to see the new catalog!!


Thank you for joining me for today’s parade of cards, and remember … I will have 3 more for you tomorrow using the Birthday Bash Designer paper.

Have yourself and fabulous day!


Today’s Stampin’ Supply List …



Showcasing Embossing Folders with beautiful cards …

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

So … what did you think about the cards I shared with you yesterday? Did you notice 2 new ones? Yes, I added two, never before seen cards!

Today I’d like to share the details of those cards with you. Let me start with the wedding card …


I used the Beautifully Baroque folder on Pool Party card stock. The “doubled” butterfly is done with vellum paper and the new Butterfly Thinlits Dies. The addition of the pearls really makes the butterfly stand out.

The salutation comes from the stamp set “Big News” and was stamped in Pool Party.

The second card was the “Baby” card …


This one is done in Pink Pirouette and Basic Gray and showcases the “Zig Zag” folder. The greeting comes from the “Celebrate Baby” stamp set. I love the combination of stamps that allow you to make many different types of baby cards.

I finished off the card by layering the flowers punched from the Boho Blossom punch.

Don’t forget … the folders are ON SALE through Monday, February 2nd. Click on any of the items below for more information.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hope you have a beautiful day ~




It’s your birthday!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

Today I continue with my Quick-n-Easy card series share with the designer paper.  I thought it would be fun to use the same designer paper and stamp set that I used yesterday!  I came up with a fun and colorful kids card for a birthday.

Our designer paper is the “Sweet Taffy” and I picked the stripped and polka dot patterns… that’s a whole lot of fun!  It’s the “Big News” stamp set,and I picked “It’s your birthday!” and yes, it’s suppose to have ink inside the letters 🙂


My base card is Tempting Turquoise… I also matted the greeting with it.   I added the Daffodil Delight behind the designer paper to coordinate with the cotton ribbon and scallop punch behind the candle.  Whisper White was used for the greeting, the candle and the inside of the card.

I pulled out the Circle Collection Framelits to cut out my greeting and the mat.  I was tempted to do some paper piercing on the Turquoise mat some texture, but I said I would give you quick -n- easy! Feel free to step up any card with paper piercing.  It is easy and it adds a nice touch to the card.

I also did some punching, that’s always a quick and easy way to jazz up a card.  Today I used the 1-3/8″ Circle punch and teamed it up with the 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle punch.


Yep … I did it, I broke out the glitter!  It’s been a while but I love the sparkle on the card.  I’m sure I’ll be sparkling for a few days too.  Even the shower doesn’t even get it all off, but it does look pretty going down the drain! LOL

Don’t forget that today is Tuesday and that means new Weekly Deals!  Click on the “WEEKLY DEALS”  picture below and check out what’s on sale today!


Thanks for stopping by today.  Not sure if I’ll be sharing this combination of  “Sweet Taffy” & “Big News” again tomorrow, but I will have another Quick -n- Easy card for you!

Have a great day ~




Monday can be Awesome!

Hello Stampin’ Friends,

I hope you had an enjoyable holiday weekend.  Mine was somewhat quite … a bit of stampin’ and a bit of planning for upcoming events!  I need all my Hostesses to save the 28th of July so they can attend my Hostess Appreciation Party!  It’s going to be a good one.

My stampin’ was upon request.  I have been asked to share some quick -n- easy cards that showcase the designer paper, since that is our special of the month!  So for the next couple of days, I will do just that.  You asked for it, you got it!


You’ve seen samples created with the Park Lane and the Lullaby, so today I am introducing you to the Sweet Taffy … sounds yummy doesn’t it.  I definitely have a taste for this designer paper, I love the colors and the patterns are fun!


I’ve teamed up this hexagon pattern with Tempting Turquoise and Old Olive.  I used my markers to color the greeting so I could have a two-tone effect.

My “awesome” greeting comes from the stamp set “Big News” found on page 68 of the annual catalog.  This stamp set also contains greetings for brides, babies, and birthdays!!

I thought it would be fun to show you another button from the Vintage buttons I showed you yesterday.  Today I colored it with the Old Olive Blendabilities markers.  There is still one more style of button in the container!


I finished off the card by adding a bit of bling to highlight the button and greeting.  Who doesn’t have an awesome friend that deserves a bit of bling and a card to tell them how special they are.

Just a bit of coloring on the greeting and the button, along with some awesome designer paper and you have a quick and easy card.  Hope you enjoyed it.

Thank you for stopping in, come back tomorrow for another sample of a quick-n-easy DSP card.

Have an awesome day!
