It's A Birthday Bonanza Pillow Box!

Pillow Boxes are such a fun way to give a birthday gift card or other small gift.  When they are decorated with the cute guys from the Birthday Bonanza Suite in Stampin' Up!'s Mini Catalog...well I think it is even more fun!


 SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight, Bermuda Bay, Smoky Slate
Inks:  VersaMark
Cardstock/Papers:  Bermuda Bay, Birthday Bonanaza Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Clubhouse
Tools: Label Me Lovely Punch
Accessories: Poppy Parade 1/2" Textured Weave Ribbon

Aren't they just so cute!  This was all pretty much done with the Designer Series Paper. The lion and koala were just fussy cut from the paper.  The Happy Birthday greeting is from the Clubhouse Stamp Set. 


Even though I did do some fussy cutting, this project came together quite quickly.  And a little tip...if you tie the ribbon around the top and bottom of the pillow box, instead of around the sides...the recipient can open it super easy!


Hope you enjoy!  Please let me know if you have any questions!  Would love to help you with any of your papercrafting needs!

Lily Pad Birthday...TGIF Challenge 251:

It's that time again!  You ready for a fun challenge?!  Well...yay!  Then you have come to the right place!  Each week, over on the TGIF Challenge Blog, we give you a new challenge!  All you have to do is be inspired by the challenge, make something, and then post it on that blog!  It is so much fun to play along!  This week...we are using a fun sketch!

Here was my take on the sketch:




SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Whisper White, Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, Granny Apple Green
Inks:  Granny Apple Green, Mango Melody, Coastal Cabana
Cardstock/Papers:  Whisper White, Mango Melody, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper, Pleased As Punch Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Lovely Lily Pad, Label Me Bold
Tools: Lily Pad Dies, Subtle Embossing Folder, Stitched So Sweetly Dies, Aqua Painter
Accessories: Whisper White Baker's Twine

And here is the sketch:



Now you will notice the sketch has "photo" in that rectangle.  Well...I made a little watercolored "photo" for mine.  And turned it into a card!  Use the challenge as an inspiration!  Doesn't have to be exact!

Look how much fun that watercoloring is!  I watercolored the lily pad, after I stamped it onto Watercolor Paper.  Then I added a little Mango Melody wash behind the die-cut flowers to bring out the Mango Melody lilies.  😍  (Also...lets talk about how you can earn the Lovely Lily Pad Stamp Set FOR FREE!  AND the Lily Pad Dies FOR FREE!  All during Sale-A-Bration!  Let me know what questions you have!  I can hook you up!  😁)



I also love this little accent I made with just die-cutting the dies in white, and adhere to the Whisper White card front.  So fun!



Hope you enjoy this card!  Please let me know if you have any questions on anything!  Just head on over to the TGIF Challenge Blog to play along!

Watercolored 3x3's...

I had so much fun watercoloring the other day, that I wanted to make some little watercolored notes.  Also...I LOVE the Label Me Bold Stamp Set and thought the sentiments from this would be the perfect stamp set to go with these notes. 



SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my STORE!)

Colors: Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, Black, Whisper White
Inks:  Petal Pink, Flirty Flamingo, Coastal Cabana, Mango Melody, StazOn Black
Cardstock/Papers:  Thick Whisper White, Whisper White, Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper
Stamps: Label Me Bold
Tools: Stitched Shapes Dies, Stitched Be Mine Dies, Aqua Painter
Accessories: Woven Thread Sequins

They were easy breezy to make.  I just cut out some squares from Fluid 100 Watercolor Paper with the 2nd largest square in the Stitched Shapes Dies.  Then just added some color, splattered it, and dried it with the heat tool.  Added that cute little floral die-cut & sentiment.  This stamp set is SO EASY to use!  Just stamp it in black on Whisper White, then cut it out.  And it looks like my fave white embossed sentiments on black cardstock! 

Here is a better look at them:

Petal Pink & Flirty Flamingo:


Mango Melody:

Seriously The Best Congrats!

Just a little watercoloring wash fun today!  Because everyday is better with some watercoloring, right?!  Hee.

I kept the whole card simple, because I just loved the watercolor wash so much.  😀   I love this dandelion die-cut from the Sweet Silhouettes Dies.  I thought it was the perfect little accent. 


I stamped the "congrats" greeting in VersaMark ink onto Vellum cardstock, embossed it with White Stampin' Emboss Powder, and then fussy cut it out.  I'm pretty much in love with how it looks on this card.  😍


Love that little touch of ribbon under the "you did it!" greeting also.  😀

Hello Fabulous!!!

Love this little Clear Tiny Treat Box!  They are so quick and easy! And adorable (especially embellished with the Best Dressed Suite)!!!!



SUPPLIES:  (all items are available in my store!)
Colors: Petal Pink, Lovely Lipstick, Soft Sea Foam
Inks:  Tuxedo Black Memento, BLENDS: Petal Pink Light & Dark, Lovely Lipstick Light & Dark, Soft Sea Foam Light
Cardstock/Papers:  Shimmery White, Petal Pink, Best Dressed Designer Series Paper
Stamps: Dressed to Impress

Accessories: Clear Tiny Treat Boxes

Perfect little Valentine for friends, or perfect little anytime gift for someone you are thinking about!  The boxes are 2"x2"x2".  Since the Designer Paper is 6"x 6", I just cut 2-1" strips.  Wrapped the first one around the bottom 3 sides.  Then cut the banner end in the other strip, and wrap around the top 3 sides.  Then add the focal point on top!  Easy, peasy!


 Here is the box in my hand so you can see its cute size!



A little tip...the 1/2" circle punch, easily punches the notch out to match the box!


Hope you enjoy!  Thank you so much for visiting!  Please let me know if you have any questions on anything!  Would love to help you!  :-)

Seriously The Best Blends Rainbow...

I saw a card today created by the FABULOUS Melody Hyde (over at @hammondandpenny) that had a rainbow made with Blends Markers.  Well I LOVED...
