Hello, welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month our Design Team’s theme is “Tag, You’re It” – tags or 3D projects to get you inspired for the upcoming gift season. We hope you enjoy and will be inspired by them! Don’t forget to leave comments! We love hearing from you. At the end of my post, you will find the full line-up to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.
I was excited about this month’s blog hop theme as I wanted to have an excuse to create another project using the Gnome for the Holidays Stamp Set! I chose my color palette based on the colors in the Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper (which just happens to be on sale for $9.78 through October 31, 2020!).
Mini Pizza Boxes seem to be my go-to for 3D items as they are quick and easy to decorate. Anything that is a time-saver these days is a must for me. Time is currently my most valuable asset and I need to use it sparingly.
Assemble a Mini Pizza Box.
Cut the following pieces of Plaid Tidings 6×6 Designer Series Paper with a Paper Trimmer
- Qty 2 – 3 1/4 Squares,
- Qty 4 – 3/4 x 3 1/4 Strips
Adhere to the Mini Pizza Box with Stampin’ Seal+ Adhesive.
Wrap the Mini Pizza Box with a 1 1/4 x 11 piece of Whisper White Cardstock, adhering at the top with Stampin’ Seal+.
Wrap again with Whisper White 1/2″ Faux Linen Ribbon and Linen Thread that has been colored with a Dark Mossy Meadow Stampin’ Blends.
Use a Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine to crop a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the largest Stitched Shapes square die.
Staple two pieces of ribbon to the top left corner. Adhere a bow of Linen Thread (colored with a Mossy Meadow Dark Stampin’ Blend.
Adhere to the belly band with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
Stamp the gnome and tree in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink onto a piece of Whisper White Cardstock.
Snip with Paper Snips.
Color with the following Stampin’ Blend Combo Packs:
- Pretty Peacock
- Pool Party
- Mossy Meadow
- Soft Suede
- Mango Melody
- Real Red
- Shaded Spruce
- Smoky Slate
- Color Lifter
Adhere to the stitched square with Stampin’ Dimensionals. TIP: Double them up under the gnome for twice the pop!
Stamp the sentiment in Mossy Meadow Classic Ink. Trim to 5/8 x 1 3/4. Adhere with Dimensionals.
Add Pool Party Rhinestone Basic Jewels and Rhinestone Basic Jewels that have been colored with a Dark Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blend.
