With the release of the June 1 new annual Stampin' Up! catalog we have so many new, fun stamps and new dies to play with us.  Join us Sunday, June 24 to play with new products, and to make these 5 cards and 2 treat boxes  We'll use a variety of papers, die cuts, embossing folders, Blends Markers, and embellishments.    

You'll love creating these cards and then sharing your creativity with others when you need  to send a special "thank you", a friendly "hello", or remember a Birthday.  Pick from a variety of sentiments so each card fits your needs..

We'll use the Darling Label Punch Box.  And you'll learn how to use the new Stamparatus Stamp Positioning tool, and how to use the new Big Shot embossing mats that turn all of your favorite Framelits, Thinlits and Edgelits dies into decorative embossing instead of only die cuts.

Stampin' Up! Gaden Impressions Designer Series Paper

  • Stamping Up! Garden Impressions Suite

Stampin' Up! Garden Impressions Papers


I broke out a new package of 6" X 6" Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper, today. Its part of the Garden Impressions Suite from the new catalog  I'm also a big fan of Night of Navy.  For some reason, that's one of my favorite colors for making Sophisticated cards.  This is one of those cards that takes almost no time to put together, and it's great to keep several on hand to send for almost any celebration or just to say:, "Hi, I'm thinking of you".  I tried a couple of different versions of the same card, changing up just a couple of ideas.    
     



The basecard is Night of Navy cardstock.  Then I cut a 6 X 6" sheet in half and created two 3" X 5-1/2" pieces so I could get two cards out of a sheet.  I also cut a 1/4" x 5-1/2" piece of So Saffron for the card front.  I selected a piece of recently retired Crushed Curry Baker's Twine and tied it around the card, across the So Saffron piece.  On another version of the card I used a retired 3/8" Crush Curry Ribbon tied in a bow.  I tried some of our new catalog products, but none worked as well as these two accents with this card.  Sometimes it pays to hang on to some of your favorite retired items...

Then I used the sentiments stamps from the Accented Blooms stamp set, and stamped them in Night of Navy ink onto Whisper White cardstock.  I used the Tailored Tag to punch out the sentiments, then mounted them on Dimensionals and attached them to the card. 





Below are both cards together. I think I like the one on the left better than the one on the right.  I do know that I'll be using other prints from the Garden Impressions Suite real soon.  This suite includes so many wonderful, coordinating pieces, you'll want to include this in your upcoming purchase plans.  


        



The Stampin' Up! Garden Impressions Designer Series Papers, and coordinating Stamp sets create glorious gardens of images.  Here are some additional samples you can create with this suite of products.

Stampin' Up! Darling Label Punch Box and coordinating Treat TIme creates fun treat boxes

  • Treat Box ideas

Stampin' Up! Darling Label Punch Box


I had some time to play with new products from the June 1 annual catalog, and I pulled out one of the fun item, The Darling Label Punch Box.  The Label Punch in this tin not only works with the stamp set that's part of the Punch Box, but also works with the Stampin' Up! Treat Time stamp set. The Treat Time stamp set also works with the coordinating Petite Treat Framelits Die, extending the usefulness of all these tools.  I was inspired by a project on the ChicnScratch.com site today, and decide to make these cute boxes using the Darling Label Punch and the coordinating stamp sets.     
     



Just a little more about this punch kit:  The tin includes not only the punch and a stamp set, but this is the perfect starter kit for a new stamper, as it includes two stampin' ink spots, and a clear stamping block. Just add cardstock.  To extend the usefulness of this set, I also purchased the Treat Time stamp set that includes another 7 sentiment stamps and  4 additional images that work with the Darling Label Punch. The Darling Label Punch can only be purchased as part of the kit.  


The Darling Label Punch Box Tin includes the punch,
Stamp set, two ink spots and a clear stamp


I used the kit and coordinating stamp set to create these cute treat boxes.  I used two of the new colors, Coastal Cabana, and Gorgeous Grape.  The new catalog includes coordinating papers, ribbons and Stampin' Markers in these new colors.  


        

The treat box I made today, is two pieces that are assembled using Tear & Tape.  

Cutting dimensions:  
Long piece:  8-1/2" X 3-1/4".  
Shorter piece:  4-7/8" X 4-78"

Scoring:  
Long 8-1/2" piece:  On long side score at 1/2", 3-1/2", 4-1/2", 7-1/2", using the Simple Scored Scoring Tool
Shorter piece:  Score at 15/16" on all four sides, using the scoring blade on your trimmers

In the photo below, you can see the positioning of the Tear & Tape on the shorter pieces after scoring and creasing both pieces with a bone folder.




The photo below show how the box is placed on the wrap-around 8-1/2" piece.  Pinch in the corners of the box and use more Tear & Tape to hold the corners to the box.  To hold the box closed, punch a 1/2" circle and attach it to the font of the box with the one of the new silver brads from the Metallic Brads collection.  Use a Paper Piercer to create a hole through the 1/2" circle and the front of the box through the box layers to insert the silver brad.  




Decorate the top of the box with patterns from the 6" X 6" Designer Series Paper.  Both Coastal Cabana and Gorgeous Grape are included in the Brights 6' X 6" Designer Series Paper stack, along with the additional 8 Brights colors.  
        

  




The coordinating ribbons are the 1/4" mini Striped Ribbons in Bermuda Bay and Gorgeous Grape, from the new catalog.
