It’s Not Just for Gift Boxes!

Hi Everyone!

That’s right…The Gift Box Punch Board is not just for gift boxes.  Here’s a little Halloween decoration I made with it.  It was so much fun and very easy to make.  Here’s the front of it.  The pumpkins were made with the Extra Large Oval Punch.  I punched 3 for each side of the box, sponged the ovals, and then glued them together in a pumpkin shape.  They were adhered to all 4 sides of the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Halloween Decorations with the Gift Box Punch Board

Here’s a view of two sides of the box.

Gift Box Punch Board








This is the top of the box.  It was made with the Rosette Designer Bigz XL Die and the 1-3/4″ Scallop Circle Punch.  The tendrils are made with skinny strips of Old Olive Card Stock that were curled with my Paper Snips.

Classy Cut-ups Creations





Next, I’m going to make 3 different size boxes so they will stack on top of each other.  I’ll share it with you when I’m finished.

Purchase your Gift Box Punch Board now so you can make boxes for your smallest Christmas presents or add candy and other treats inside.  You can make boxes of various sizes with the largest side being 4″.

Traveling Around the World

Hello Friends,

I hope each and everyone of you are doing well and staying healthy.

Ever since I was in 6th grade with Mr. Cox, I have loved Geography.  Over the years, I’ve collected several vintage maps.  When I first saw the World Map Background Stamp, I just had to purchase it!  I like using background stamps quite a bit, but this one is my all-time favorite.

I’m entering this card in The Paper Players Challenge this week.  The challenge is to make Traveler Stamp Seta masculine card.  The World Map Stamp and the images from the Traveler Stamp Set can be combined to make fabulous cards for men (or for women).  I used the Embossing Resist Technique to make the card front.  The map image was stamped on Whisper White Card Stock in VersaMark and then embossed with Black Embossing Powder.  I sponged Pear Pizzazz, Calypso Coral, So Saffron, and Crumb Cake Inks over the stamped image and then used a tissue to wipe off any ink that was covering the embossing.  A piece of Burlap Ribbon was wrapped around this panel and it was adhered to an Old Olive and Pear Pizzazz card base.

The ship was stamped in Black StazOn Ink on another piece of Whisper White Card Stock.  It was cut out with one of the dies from the Window Frames Collection.  The “ocean” was watercolored using Marina Mist and Pool Party Inks.  The paint splashes are from one of the images in the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set.  I added 3 Candy Dots to the right side of the Burlap Ribbon to complete the card.

Gorgeous Grunge and Pearls

Hello Friends,

I hope you all are having a wonderful weekend so far.  I’ve been busy packing and moving to my new house.  Don’t worry, if you live in the New Port Richey area, I will still be having my card classes at Hobby Lobby and at a local clubhouse one of my good friends has offered me for classes. From Millan.Net

Today, I want to share another card using the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set with Basic Petite PetalsPearl Embellishments.  Don’t think they go together?  Well, just take a look at this.

I used Crisp Cantaloupe and Whisper White Card Stock for the card base and the first layer.

The Paper Doily was adhered to the card front and it was stamped with the scattered dots from the Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set in Crisp Cantaloupe Ink.  Next, I adhered a piece of Calypso Coral Chevron Ribbon and a piece of Whisper White Organza Ribbon to the card front. I punched out the stem and leaves with the Bird Builder Punch and adhered them. The fibers were pulled out of a piece of Burlap Ribbon and placed on the card front with Glue Dots.  The flowers from the Petite Petals Stamp Set were stamped in Calypso Coral Ink and punched out with the Petite Petals Punch and the chevrons were punched out of Coastal Cabana Card Stock with the Chevron Border Punch. After that, the Basic Pearl Jewels were added to the flowers and randomly on the card front.  Now, what do you think?  Don’t you just love the Gorgeous Grunge with Pearls!

More Designer Backgrounds

Hello Friends,

I’m sorry I’ve been neglecting my blog lately. I just haven’t had time! Things should calm down in a few weeks and I should be able to post daily again.

Recently, I shared a card I made using designer paper  that was made with stamps. You can see it here.  I want to share another card made with my own designer paper design Make Your Own Designer Paperwith you today.  I used the flower image from the Choose Happiness Stamp Set and randomly stamped it on Whisper White Card Stock with Crisp Cantaloupe Ink. I added some Dazzling Details to the flowers.  The bird, greeting, and banners are from the same set.

There are so many ways to make your own background paper.  Stay tuned for more techniques in the following weeks.
