3D projects, Stampin' Up!


How was your Christmas?  I hope you had a lovely day.  They weather changed considerably here yesterday with rain and much cooler temperatures.  This changed our plans a bit but it all worked out.  Nothing like coziness with all the family on Christmas Day!!!

I know Christmas has now gone but I still want to show you this project.  I have been meaning to make one of these Christmas Banners for months.  I have looked around the internet but just wasn’t sure what to do.  On the weekend just gone I thought I should just ‘DO IT!!’  So I did!

Here is my Christmas Banner.


It is hard to see it all here so I will show you some close-up shots.





What I have used:

CARD: Gumball Green, Cherry Cobbler, Silver Glimmer Paper, Very Vanilla, ‘Be of Good Cheer’ DSP.

BIG SHOT: Timeless Type Alphabet (retired), Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder, Snow Flurry Die, Top Note Die.

OTHER: Scallop Circle Punch, 2 step Owl Punch (centre of Snowflake), Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding, Adhesive Rhinestones.

I hope you like it???? It was fun to create.

Enjoy the rest of your Christmas celebrations and I look forward to you stopping by again soon.


3D projects, Stampin' Up!


Here we are in Box Week at Box #6.  These boxes are getting bigger now!


I found the template for this box on Becky’s 12 Days of Christmas 2009 edition.  You can find the details here.  This was the Bow Box in the collection.  If you scroll down the blog and look in the Right Hand column you can see the 2009 projects there.  You can purchase the Tutorial there too.

My box was created in Cherry Cobbler.  The frame on the front was stamped using “Memorable Moments” and then cut with the Labels Framelits.  The greeting is from “More Merry Messages”.  A little Candy Cane stamped from “Scentsational Season” and cut with the Holiday Framelits finishes the front.

Here is the top view.


The top was cut in Gumball Green and DSP strips (from “Be of Good Cheer DSP pack”) were adhered to the edges and top.  I cut 2 snowflakes with the Snow Flurry Die in Silver Glimmer Paper and Very Vanilla.  These were layered together.  The Cherry Cobbler circle in the centre was punched out using one of the small circles on the Owl Punch.  An adhesive pearl finished off the centre.  I cut a piece of the Cherry Cobbler Tulle and gathered that together and wrapped some thread around the centre to hold it all in place.  Once all the layers were adhered together they were fixed in place on top of the box with Dimensionals.  This box stands at 10.5cm or about 4 1/4″ tall.

Thanks for looking today.  We have our last box for our Box Week tomorrow so be sure to stop by.




I wanted to show you this card we made a few weeks ago at a workshop.  Thanks Deb :).  I have been having fun with this stamp set ‘Scentsational Season’.  How easy is it when you have the co-ordinating Framelits??? – No scissors involved!!!

Here is the card.  I CASED this from Fiona Whitten on our Stampin’ Connection forum for Demonstrators.  I just changed a couple of little things.

I love the little window created with the tree.

I will give you the details:

CARD: Crumb Cake, Gumball Green, Very Vanilla, Be of Good Cheer DSP.

INK: Gumball Green, Crumb Cake, Cherry Cobbler.

STAMPS: Scentsational Season, Petite Pairs.

OTHER: HOLIDAY Framelits, scallop oval punch, oval punch, Dotted Ribbon Punch, Rhinestones.

Just a couple of tips:

– Once you stamp and cut the trees, line them up on your card front so you roughly know where to cut the tree.

– It is easier to push the tree through the window at the front to position it rather than trying to line it up from inside.

Here is the inside of the card if you want to see.

The inside greeting is from Petite Pairs.

Thanks for looking.  My bed is calling me …….

Come and visit again soon,
