Happy Friday! TGIFC178

It’s Friday and time for a Theme!  This month’s theme is Holiday Prep. Since the next holiday coming up is Halloween, and one of my favorites, I decided to create a little Spooky Treat Mini Pizza Box.  Gorgeous Grape is my favorite purple and works perfectly for Halloween.

Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Open a Mini Pizza Box and use a Sponge Brayer to apply Gorgeous Grape Ink.  Use a Heat Tool to set the ink.
  2. Cut a piece of Black 5/8″ Organdy Glittered Ribbon and wrap around the Mini Pizza Box, securing with a bow.
  3. With a Stampin’ Trimmer, cut two 1 1/4″ x 6″ strips of Daffodil Delight Cardstock. Zip through the Big Shot in between the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder.  Fold along the embossed stripes, alternating fold direction. Connect the ends with Tear n’ Tape.  Push together to form a circle and set with a hot glue gun.  Adhere to the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  4. Cut a piece of Basic Gray Cardstock to 3 3/4″ x 1″.  Flag the end with the Banner Triple Punch.  Stamp the sentiment in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Adhere to the rosette with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  5. Crop a piece of Whisper White Cardstock with the 1 3/4″ Circle Punch. Sponge on Daffodil Delight Ink until you have desired coverage.  Stamp the background stamp in Gray Granite over the right half the moon (resemble cloud cover).   Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  6. Crop a piece of the Black Foil Sheets with the Spooky Bats Punch.  Adhere with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  7. Add 3 Black Faceted Dots for a final touch.

It has been FOREVER since I created a 3-D Item…I get caught up in cards and forget how fun they are to create.  The Mini Pizza Box is perfect for a quick and easy gift package for any occasion.  Color coordinate it to your liking by adding ink with a Sponge Brayer and setting it with a Heat Tool.

I love creating rosettes and the Simple Stripes Textured Impressions Embossing Folder makes it that much easier (thanks to a tip from Artisan and friend, Connie Collins). Don’t have the Simple Stripes Embossing Folder?  The Simply Scored Tool works well and doesn’t limit you on the sizes of your rosette.  A hot glue gun is the best adhesive to keep the rosette neat and tidy.

Climbing Orchid Gift Bag!

Happy Monday Everyone!
Welcome to another Global Design Project Color Challenge. GDP129 Colors speak my language! Calypso Coral and Soft Suede are two of my most used and favorite colors!  It was so easy to add Pear Pizzazz to the mix!  I had yet to use the Climbing Orchid Bundle and the Gift Bag Punch Board so I put them to work for this challenge.

  5. Snip out the Stems and Sentiments using your Paper Snips.

  8. Adhere to the Gift Bag, as shown, with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Merry Little Christmas for Just Add Ink #389

An Acetate Gift Box : Just Add Ink #389

Today I created a quick Acetate Gift Box using product from the Merry Little Christmas Suite (soon to retire) from the 2017 Holiday Catalog!  I based my design on the Inspiration Challenge #389 over at Just Add Ink! I had yet to use both the Winter Wonder Textured Impressions Embossing Folder (retiring) and Acetate Card Boxes (sticking around). I am #madforplaid so I am sad to see the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper retire, but now that I know how I can achieve my own plaid by using the Brushstrokes Background Stamp, I am good to go!.

I wasn’t excited about the Green Sprigs from the Merry Little Christmas Suite, but I will say that I have fallen head-over-heels for them and have used up my entire stash (I even had to re-purpose to finish this project). Pair them up with the Mini Ornaments and the Jute Twine and you have the perfect combination for a rustic-feel creation. If you follow me, you know I am crazy about rustically themed crafts!

 

The Merry Little Labels Bundle (Merry Little Labels Stamp Set (retiring) + Everyday Label Punch (sticking around)) makes for quick and easy gift tags that look fabulous on any gift, and the Just For You Stamp makes it expand past Christmas themed projects. It also coordinates with the Labels to Love Stamp Set from the 2017 Holiday Catalog.  Here is a look at past projects that used the Merry Little Christmas Suite as well.

3-D Thursday: Cheery Chirps Sharing the Joy

3-D Thursday: Cheery Chirps Sharing the Joy with Stampin’ Blends

Welcome to 3-D Thursday at Stampin’ Hoot!  I wasn’t planning on sharing a new creation, but I am having so much fun using the All-New Stampin’ Blends, Premium Alcohol Markers by Stampin’ Up!, that I just had to share it with you!  The Cheery Chirps Stamp Set is perfect for coloring.  Did you see my post from Monday?  I used the other images from the Cheery Chirps Stamp Set and colored them with the New Blends as well. You can see it here:

Cheery Chirps for Global Design Project 110 Sketch

3-D Thursday brings Cheery Chirps, Stampin' Blends and a Mini Pizza Gift Box by Stesha Bloodhart, Stampin' Hoot! #stampinhoot #steshabloodhart

As you probably know, I LOVE to fussy cut with my handy little Paper Snips, so this project was definitely a fun one!  Not excited about fussy cutting like me?  No worries, you can easily use a Circle Punch or Circle Die and crop this birdie out quickly!

  • A Mini Pizza Box was colored with Old Olive Ink and a Sponge Brayer. Note: It takes a while to dry..speed it up with a Heat Tool if short on time.  Your fingers will thank you!
  • The bird from Cheery Chirps was stamped on Whisper White Thick Cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.
  • I colored the image with the following Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Markers:  Light and Dark Daffodil Delight, Light Pumpkin Pie, and Light and Dark Old Olive.  I snipped it out with my Paper Snips and adhered with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • The sentiment ‘Sharing the Joy’ is from the Ready for Christmas Photopolymer Stamp Set.  It was stamped in Basic Black Archival Ink on Whisper White Cardstock.  It was snipped out with my well-loved Paper Snips and adhered with Mini Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • I wrapped Crushed Curry 3/8″ Mini Chevron Ribbon around the Mini Pizza Box and secured it with a bow.  I can easily be slipped off to open the box.
  • I cut a piece of Old Olive 1/8″ Sheer Ribbon to size, added Mini Glue Dots to the ends and adhered it to the center of the Crushed Curry Ribbon.
  • I added three Black Rhinestone Jewels as the final touch to the Mini Pizza Gift Box.

The darkest color of the birdie is Light Pumpkin Pie, it pairs so well with the Daffodil Delight!  I am finally getting the hang of using the Stampin’ Blends and obtaining wonderful depth and shading with blending.  They have now become a staple in my craft room!  Are you ready to add them to yours?  You can have them starting November 1st!  Get that order ready!
