Stampin’ Up! make simple cards so easy – the products in the Annual Catalogue are beautiful and co-ordinate with one another perfectly. To make life even easier, they bring together Product Medleys – one of which is used in this project. The Boho Indigo product medley is gorgeous, full of floral patterns, shades of blue and finished with gold accents.
This card uses three simple items from that medley – a piece of Designer Series Paper, a gold edged die cut for a sentiment and two gold pop out die cuts for decoration. All I added was the card base and stamp a sentiment – which is ideal for those last minute cards that are needed or for someone who is new to crafting and isn’t sure where to start.
But I think you would agree – Boho Indigo makes great projects every time?
Coastal Cabana is a colour that made its return during the colour refresh back in June. It’s a beautiful blue, when you don’t quite want to be as bright as Bermuda Bay and co-ordinates with the gorgeous Team Room Speciality Designer Series Paper (DSP).
The Team Room DSP is thinner than other suites, making it brilliant for projects where a thicker card don’t quite suit. It’s lovely floral patterns make it suitable for pretty much every occasion and you can 4 of each design, which makes it so much better than other packs of paper!
I wanted the paper to take the full focus of this card, so added very little to it. A separate layer added to emphasise the paper and a small sentiment to complete. Then finished a Polka Dot Tulle bow.
Ahh, so it’s coming to that time of year when you’re starting to contemplate Bonfire Night, Christmas, Halloween.. Perhaps you’ve already received invites to parties around those times and are wondering what to do for gifts etc? This is a quick idea which can work for all occasions.
The wrap I have made suits a miniature bottle of wine and rather than being circular, wraps around the bottle in a hexagon style shape allowing panels of Designer Series Paper (DSP) to be displayed beautifully. To follow the shape of the bottle, the top edges are scored and held with a vanilla twine bow.
To finish it off, I used a sentiment from the Treat Time stamp set and some bling in the form of Rhinestones – GORGEOUS!
How gorgeous is the deer on this card? I couldn’t wait to use it when I first opened the stamp set but wasn’t sure what to do with it. Doing my usual browsing of Pinterest and other craft forums, I came across a card from a fellow demo Karen McClure using the Dashing Along Designer Series Paper (DSP). Unfortunately, the Dashing Along DSP was only available for a limited time as part of an offer in September, so I decided to make my own interpretation with products still available in the current catalogues.
Combining tone on tone with the beautiful die cut from the Detailed Deer Thinlits Dies is absolutely gorgeous and I think everyone would agree that the combination of Cherry Cobbler and Crumb Cake suits the festive season perfectly.
This box was very much inspired by the Very Vintage Birthday card I posted a week or so ago. I loved the pattern that I stamped so much, I chose to duplicate it but this time onto a small box – which could include a small treat for the recipient of the card as part of a set? Either way, the pattern is beautiful and the bees are just adorable.
For this box, I didn’t want to add any sentiment, as I wanted the background stamping to be the centre of attention. Instead, I chose to fussy cut two bees to give the box some layers and well, because I think they’re cute and it gave me any excuse to use them.
The box would happily fit in some small sweeties, or a beauty product such as nail varnish or lip gloss and of course, can be recreated in any colours you choose.
Aww, look at the baby elephant! How cute is this set? And the awesome-ness doesn’t stop there! This gorgeous elephant comes in a bundle including stamp set and punch and teamed with the Twinkle Twinkle Designer Series Paper (DSP), you have endless opportunities for baby related projects.
On this project, I let the paper lead the inspiration and the ideas flowed into this card. Both a pink and a blue one were made and both of them look absolutely gorgeous as the products co-ordinate so well.
The elephants are perfect for cards, boxes, bags, frames – the list is endless! I’m sure you would agree.
