PEACE & JOY BUNDLE!  One of my TOP BUNDLE PICKS from the 2020 August – December Mini Catalog.  I was so excited to see the die-cut sentiments, I have been crossing my fingers that they would release a set like this for me to play with.  As you will see with all Artisan’s projects, you can use the dies & stamps together, dies on their own, and stamps on their own…so versatile! 

Step by Step Tutorial Button

Use a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 4 1/4 x 11.  Score and fold at 5 1/2.

Create an ombre of color by using a Flat Brush Water Painter to apply the following Classic Inks to a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper: Pretty Peacock, Coastal Cabana, and Crumb Cake. Allow to dry completely.

Place several drops of Versamark Refill Ink onto a Clear Stamp Block.  Pick up with a Water Painter or Paint Brush. Flick onto the Watercolor Paper. Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Tap to remove the excess.  Set with a Heat Tool.

Flick water onto the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Let it sit for 30 seconds.  Dab with a Paper Towel.

Cut the Watercolor Paper to 3 1/2 x 5 1/2. (Save the extra for the Mini Pizza Box shown below).

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine along with the Joy Dies to crop the largest “Peace” and ‘Joy’ Layers from the Watercolor Paper as shown.

Adhere the Watercolor Paper to the card base with Stampin’ Seal.

Adhere the Peace & Joy layers to the card base with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I have to say that Pretty Peacock is currently my FAVORITE color.  Teal is a go-to of mine in all aspects and Pretty Peacock is just a really gorgeous shade of teal!

This card showcases the Peace & Joy Stamp Set on its own, which works well! I positioned all the stamps on a Stamparatus so I could create a drop shadow effect (detailed below), I just love the result. 

 

Step by Step Tutorial Button

Begin by using a Stampin’ Up! Paper Trimmer to cut a piece of Whisper White Thick Cardstock to 5 1/2 x 8 1/2.  Score and fold at 4 1/4. 

Adhere a 5 3/8 x 4 1/8 piece of Pretty Peacock Cardstock to the card base with Stampin’ Seal. 

Smooch a 5 1/4 x 4  piece of Shimmery White Cardstock with Pretty Peacock Classic Ink.  (you can see my smooching instructions here). 

Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop the center of the Shimmery White Cardstock with the largest Stitched Nested Labels Die. 

Adhere both to the card with Stampin’ Seal Adhesive.

Use a Flat Brush Water Painter to apply Pretty Peacock Classic Ink to a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper. Allow to dry completely. 

Use a Water Painter to flick water onto the Watercolor Paper.  Allow to sit for 30 seconds.  Dab away with a Paper Towel. 

Crop with the largest Stitched Nested Labels Die.  

Position the four stamps on a Stamparatus. Stamp in Versamark Ink onto the Watercolor Paper.  Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Tap to remove the excess.  Set with a Heat Tool. 

Position on the Stamparatus slightly lower than the previous.  Stamp again in Versamark Ink.  Cover with Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder. Tap to remove the excess.  Set with a Heat Tool. (this creates the drop shadow effect). 

Staple a 2″ piece of folded Snowflake Splendor 1/4″ Ribbon to the upper left corner. 

Add several Snowflake Adhesive-Backed Embellishments as shown.

Mine final project showcases the dies on their own.  I just love how easy a Mini Pizza Box is to decorate and it is the perfect size to fit so many great gifts….Gift Cards, Cookies, Jewelry, and more.    

Step by Step Tutorial Button

Sponge Pretty Peacock Classic Ink onto a Mini Pizza Box prior to assembly.  Set aside to dry. 

Create an ombre of color by using a Flat Brush Water Painter to apply the following Classic Inks to a piece of Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper: Pretty Peacock, Coastal Cabana, and Crumb Cake. Allow to dry completely.

Place several drops of Versamark Refill Ink onto a Clear Stamp Block.  Pick up with a Water Painter or Paint Brush. Flick onto the Watercolor Paper. Cover with White Stampin’ Emboss Powder.  Tap to remove the excess.  Set with a Heat Tool.

Flick water onto the Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper.  Let it sit for 30 seconds.  Dab with a Paper Towel.

Cut a 1 1/2 x 5 3/8 strip (from the excess of the card shown above).  Note: You can use a 1 1/2 x 3 3/8 strip so that you do not have to wrap and cut slits in the paper as shown.  It would have just as nice of an effect and much easier!   Adhere to the Mini Pizza Box with Multipurpose Liquid Glue. 

Double Wrap the Mini Pizza Box with Snowflake Splendor 1/4″ Ribbon, securing in the top-center with Mini Glue Dots. 

Create 3″ loops (1 1/2″ long) and gather together to create the bow as shown.  Adhere withe Mini Glue Dots.

Adhere as shown with Mini Stampin’ Dimensional.
