Perfect Parcels and Petals – Part 2

You may recall a week or so ago, I posted a card made with the Parcels and Petals stamp set. (Check it out here.) I promised you that I would show you something that showed the Parcel part of the set. The Perfect Parcels dies make really perfect parcels!

I made these adorable boxes as door prizes for my classes this month. Each box is filled with Hershey Miniatures, individually wrapped!

 

 

Design Notes for Perfect Parcels Boxes:

These boxes were so much fun to make. The dies, of course, made it easy. Remember, whenever you are making a box or container, use Tear & Tape to be sure it will stay together. Here’s the box, before belly band.

The belly band was a strip of the Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper and some Scalloped Linen Ribbon topped with a sentiment and background piece. The sentiment and background piece were also cut from dies in the Perfect Parcels Dies set. I finished it all off with one of the Bird Ballad Trinkets.

Oh, are you wondering what I put inside? There are so many choices. But, I went with my fallback, Hershey Nuggets. I wrapped each one with some Mosaic Mood Specialty Designer Series Paper.

Nine Nuggets fit comfortably in each box. I probably could have fit in a few more!

Parcels & Petal are Pretty Pretty!

Parcels & Petals. Are you looking for the parcels? There is a set of dies that coordinate with this stamp set. You can create a little box with the dies. Today, I’m just using the stamp set for a fun, gate fold card. (Soon, I’ll show you the dies and the wonderful things you can create with them.)

Design Notes for Parcels & Petals:

Gate fold cards are just the kind of card I like to make. They are easy to do and yet look somehow more special.

Do you have the new Stitched Nested Labels? They are the best. That’s what I used to create the label in the center of the card front. Stamp sentiment, cut with die. Then use the next larger die to cut a background piece. And isn’t the stitched detail around the edge the best?

Are you wondering about the panels on either side? I know you are thinking it’s some designer paper. No! I stamped it myself with some flowers and leaves from the Parcels & Petals stamp set. Now you can’t ever complain about have just the right designer paper – just make it yourself!

It Starts With Art

One of my good friends and downline Janet, and I are going to a crop day on Saturday. Crop days are generally days when scrapbookers get together and work without interruptions for hours, all day and into the night. Doesn’t that sound like fun? I may bring some scrapbooking things but will probably work on things for an upcoming craft fair. I thought it would be fun to make a card for Janet using the It Starts With Art stamp set. It’s just so appropriate!

I thought this was really a fun sketch. There are so many elements from the It Starts with Art Suite that I used. The background layer is from the great Follow Your Art Designer Series Paper. Have you seen it? What great designs.

It was hard to choose!

I also used a few of the dies from the Arts & Crafts Dies set – the pencils, the binder clip, the paper clip and the buttons border. Finally, I used a few of the stamps. Can you pick them out?

I Say Hello

Whenever I read the name of this stamp set, I want to sing that old Beatles song, “Hello, Goodbye.” So, now that song will be in your head while you read this blog post. (For a reminder of this song, scroll to the end of the blog post.) Anyway, I love this stamp set, it’s just perfect for a quick card for lots of different occasions. Here’s my “I Say Hello” card.

Design Notes for I Say Hello Card:

Don’t you love this color combination? Two of the colors are new, In-Colors, Purple Posy and Seaside Spray. That means they will only be around for two years.

 

Here’s a good look at the stamp set. I know there is a greeting for most events that you can think of!

I say Hello stamp set images, Stampin' Up! diannescards.comTo be honest, this was a pretty easy card to put together. I cut some layers using the Rectangular Stitched Framelits, added some ribbons and the stamped piece. The final touch was a daisy stamped with a stamp from Daisy Lane and punched out with the Medium Daisy Punch. A little jewel in the middle added  just the right amount of glitz! Well, there is the yummy linen ribbons too. Isn’t that just the best. That ribbon comes in each of the new In-Colors.

Sweet Baby Card for A Sweet Baby

A neighbor of mine recently welcomed a new grandson. He is the third child for one of her daughters, a son following two lovely daughters. The little ducks from Fable Friends just called out to me for this baby card.

Design Notes for Sweet Baby Card:

I just love this stamp from the Fable Friends stamp set. There are lots of ways I could have colored it but I choose to use some of my Watercolor Pencils and a Blender Pen. The Blender Pen is just the perfect tool to smooth out the colors. The little hearts are some Heart Epoxy Droplets that I colored with a Balmy Blue Blend (Dark).  I cut the piece out with one of the Stitched Nested Labels.
