Berry Delightful Note Cards and Gift Box

Hello! Today’s project is a set of four note cards and a coordinating gift box that features the yummy Berry Delightful Designer Series Paper. This paper is part of a Sale-A-Bration bundle that also includes the Berry Blessings stamp set. You can earn this bundle for free with a $100 order, but time is running out because Sale-A-Bration ends tomorrow, February 28th. This will be your last chance to earn these products. This is one of the projects we did in my stamping club this month.

Here is how to make the note cards.

  • This project uses the Basic White Note Cards & Envelopes in the annual catalog. Use four cards and envelopes. Cards measure 5″ x 3 1/2″ folded.
  • Fold note cards and crease with bone folder.  Select four different sheets of the Berry Delightful DSP and cut them at 3 1/4″ x 4 3/4″. Adhere DSP to card fronts.
  • Cut four pieces of contrasting DSP at 3/4″ x 4 3/4″ and adhere them to the to card fronts, slightly below the middle.
  • Stamp greetings from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set. Select four ink colors that coordinate with the DSP. These cards use Poppy Parade, Blackberry Bliss, Garden Green and Pacific Point. I used two different greetings and stamped each of the two in a different color to coordinate with the cardstock for the scalloped circles.  Die cut the smaller “Just for You” greeting with the smallest circle in the Layering Circles die set.  Die cut the larger “Hello There” greeting with the second smallest circle in the die set.
  • I used the same colors of cardstock as the inks. Die cut the scalloped circles from each of the four different colors of cardstock.  For the smaller circle use the second smallest scalloped circle and for the larger circle use the third smallest scalloped circle.
  • Adhere the stamped greetings to the coordinating scalloped circle pieces and adhere to right side of card front.

The box is made with one of the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes from the annual catalog. Here is how I made it.

  • Make box by folding along all score lines. These boxes are food safe so one side is shiny and the other side is matte.  You want the shiny side to be the inside of the box.
  • Cut piece of DSP at 3 ¾” x 5 ½” and adhere to top of box.  Using the same sheet of DSP, cut two strips at 1″ x 5 3/4″ and two strips at 1″ x 3 3/4″. Adhere the strips to the sides of the boxes.  Cut a contrasting strip of DSP at 1″ x 5 1/2″ and adhere to the center of the top of the box.
  • Stamp greeting from the Berry Best stamp set with Garden Green Ink on a 3″ square piece of Basic White cardstock.  Die cut with the second largest circle in the Layering Circles dies, with the greeting closer to the bottom of the circle in order to leave space above to adhere punched out strawberries.  You can also punch out the circle if you own the 2 ½” circle punch, which is now retired. Adhere to right side of the top of the box.
  • From the 12” x 12” sheet of DSP with the multi-colored strawberries and flower blossoms, punch out the Poppy Parade and Rich Razzleberry strawberries with the Strawberry Builder punch.  This will cut off the stem part of the strawberry.  To add stems back, punch out from scraps of Garden Green cardstock using the Strawberry Builder punch and adhere to strawberries.  Using the builder punch, punch out the Pacific Point flower blossoms. Arrange strawberries and flower blossoms around the circle and adhere.
  • Add the four note cards and envelopes to the inside of the box and voila! You have a beautiful gift to give to someone special!

Flower & Field-Kylie’s Training Blog Hop

Hello! Welcome to Kylie Bertucci’s Demonstrator Training Blog Hop for February. I’m part of a group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators from around the world that participate in Kylie’s program for building our businesses. The theme for this year is thank you cards that we make as a way to show appreciation to our customers. Please be sure to click on the names in the list at the end of this post to hop around and view the beautiful projects posted by so many talented stampers.

Today’s card showcases the pretty Flower & Field Designer Series Paper, one of the Sale-A-Bration items you can earn for free with a $50 order. This is an easy layout that makes DSP the star of the show.

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – cut a piece of Just Jade cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, fold in half and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut a piece of Flower & Field DSP at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Cut in half on the diagonal by lining up opposite corners along the cutting track of the paper trimmer. Once you make the cut, without pulling the two pieces apart, gently turn the piece around so that you are now cutting the two other opposite corners. You have now cut out an “X” and can pull the triangles apart.
  • For this card I decided to use both sides of the DSP, however, you can mix and match with other contrasting pieces of DSP. You would just cut another piece of DSP at 4″ x 5 1/4″ and repeat the cutting process for making the “X.”
  • Adhere one set of triangles , matching the points in the center of the card front. Adhere the second set of triangles and space them so that some of the card base shows in between.
  • Stamp greeting from the Heal Your Heart stamp set, another Sale-A-Bration item, with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on scrap piece of So Saffron cardstock. Run through your die cutting & embossing machine with one of the labels from the Stitched So Sweetly Dies.
  • Die cut two sets of the smallest set of leaves from the Pierced Blooms Dies, a fabulous set of dies in the January-June 2021 Mini Catalog. Adhere the leaves to opposite sides of the label with glue dots. Adhere label to center of card front.
  • Cut a piece of Basic White cardstock at 4″ x 5 1/4″. Stamp the smaller image from the Corner Bouquet stamp set with Just Jade ink in the lower left corner and adhere to inside of card. I chose not to stamp a greeting in order to write a personalized note.

When I first saw this paper, I immediately thought that it would work beautifully with the Lovely You stamp set, so I’ve paired up these two products.

The card layout is from Sunday Stamps Challenge. I haven’t participated in a challenge for a long time and when I came across this sketch I thought it would be a fun one to do so decided to give it a go! Here is the sketch for SSC248.

  • Cut piece of Basic White cardstock at 2 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and run through die cutting machine with third largest rectangle from the Stitched so Sweetly dies. Randomly stamp flowers and leaves from Lovely You stamp set with Rococo Rose, Seaside Spray and Soft Sea Foam inks. Adhere to Seaside Spray rectangle. Adhere piece to center of card front.
  • Cut scrap piece of Basic White cardstock at 1/2″ x 2 3/4″, stamp greeting with Night of Navy ink and punch both ends with the Lovely Labels Pick a Punch. Cut scrap piece of Night of Navy cardstock at 3/4″ x 3 1/4″ and punch both ends. Adhere labels together. Adhere to stamped piece with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Daisy Lane- Kylie’s International Blog Highlights

Hello and Happy New Year! I hope that 2021 will be brighter for everyone. Today I’m participating in Kylie Bertucci’s International Blog Highlights. Readers get to vote on their top five favorites in the gallery and the top 10 winners will get to participate in an International Blog Hop later this month. The theme is “thank you” and is a way for us to show our appreciation to someone that has inspired, helped or supported us in some way.

This card uses the Flowers and Field Designer Series Paper, one of the free products you will be able to earn with a $50 purchase during Sale-A-Bration, which begins tomorrow, January 5th. I paired it with the Daisy Lane stamp set and coordinating daisy punches. The second I laid eyes on this paper in the SAB brochure it immediately brought me back to the first dress I made in my Junior High School sewing class back in the mid-1960’s! I grew up in Brooklyn, New York so my mother and I took the subway to 34th Street in Manhattan to go to Macy’s department store. At the time they had an entire floor devoted to sewing and fabrics, now long gone. After perusing thousands of bolts of fabrics, many which had flowers on black backgrounds, I selected one with a daisy print. The dress was a simple shift with a tie belt, which was very in-style at the time. I saved the dress and went up to my attic this weekend to take a few pictures. The yellow in the fabric is an exact match to the Bumblebee In Color. Everything old is new again!

Here is how I made the card.

  • Card base – Cut a piece of Bumblebee cardstock at 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″, score at 4 1/4″, fold and crease with a bone folder.
  • Cut piece of daisy print from the Flower & Field DSP at 4 1/8″ x 5 3/8″ and adhere to card front.
  • Cut piece of Basic Black cardstock at 3″ x 4″. Cut piece of Bumblebee polka dot print DSP at 2 7/8″ x 3 7/8″ and adhere to cardstock.
  • Stamp the daisy images from the Daisy Lane stamp set. On scrap piece of Whisper White cardstock, use Bumblebee ink to stamp the large daisy image twice and stamp the small daisy image three times. Punch out with the large and medium daisy punches. For the large flower, adhere two of the large daisies together and then adhere one small daisy. For the small flower adhere the two remaining small daisies together. Adhere with either glue dots or a small amount of liquid glue on the flower centers. Curl the tips of the large daisy with a bone folder. Add a champagne rhinestone to the center of each flower.
  • Stamp the greeting with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on scrap piece of Pool Party cardstock. Cut out with one of the dies from the Tasteful Labels die set. This is one of my “go to” sets for cutting out greetings.
  • Cut an 18″ piece of Bumblebee gingham ribbon and tie into a bow around the polka dot piece. Adhere piece to center of card front. Adhere large daisy with Stampin’ Dimensionals in upper left corner and adhere smaller daisy under the larger flower. Adhere greeting with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
