Make A Birthday Card with Stampin' Up! Hello Ladybug

Stampin-up-ladybug-cardThe Stampin' Up! Hello Ladybug Bundle (English) [157699] is a stamp set and punch bundle used to make the birthday card seen here. This card was one created in my latest YouTube Premiere.  The red and black ladybug looks great with this buffalo check print from the DSP.

Sometimes just offsetting your cut layers can make a simple layout look fabulous.  Here's the section of the video for you to see just how this card is put together.

Lisa's Inklings:
Card base is Basic White 8 1/2" X 11" Thick Cardstock [159229] cut at 4-1/4 x 11 and scored at 5-1/2.
Basic White 8 1/2" X 11" Cardstock [159276] is cut 2-1/2 x 4 and textured with the Splatters 3D Embossing Folder and 2-1/2" strip for stamping and cutting the leaf.
Granny Apple Green Stampin' Pad [147095] is cut 3 x 4-1/2.
You will need about a 3 x 3 piece of Real Red 8-1/2" X 11" Cardstock [102482] to die-cut the circle.
Pattern Party 12" X 12" Host Designer Series Paper [155426] is cut 3-1/2 x 5.

DIY Home Decór with Paper Crafting

Honeybee-Home-tag-card-1This may look like a really pretty springtime card made with paper crafting supplies but how about using part of it as an element of a DIY home decór project?

In last week's YouTube Premiere, this was one of our projects featured as a card and then as an element on the popular tiered trays that are so trendy right now.

In the YouTube video, you will see the how-to for this card and then how it's used on a tiered tray with some other elements created with Stampin' Up! supplies.  Let's take a look!

Details for the Honeybee Home Card:

Honeybee-Home-card-tagNow, if you watched the video above through the end, you saw how the tag element from the card above was used.  These tiered trays are so much fun to style and can be changed out for any and every occasion.

Honeybee-Home-Tiered-TrayIt was so much fun putting this piece together.  Keep an eye out for elements that you can use for whatever them you wish.  Notice the banner created with the Playful Alphabet Dies that are on the Last Chance List and will not be available much longer.  These alpha dies are just the right size for projects like this one and for card fronts.  These are a steal for the discounted price of $27.20!

Makeover Magic #2 - Handmade Gift Box

Makeover-magic-handmade-gift-box-2Today's project is a makeover of a handmade gift box from a previously recorded video tutorial. 

The original project was created and shared a few months ago as a holiday or hostess gift.  I love packaging tea towels or kitchen towels with our pretty Stampin' Up! goodies and making the presentation really special.  We've all heard of the adage, "presentation is everything",  and as paper crafters, we like to think that is most certainly true!

Here is the original project below. Notice the tag on the "makeover" is adhered to the box front rather than hanging from the ribbon wrap as pictured below. 

Magid2-handmade-gift-bagLet's take a look at the video below for the how-to.

Handmade Gift Box

Here are some quick details for this handmade gift box.

Lisa's Inklings:

  • Waves Of The Ocean Designer Series Paper [159982]is cut 8-1/2 x 12.
  • Score at 2, 5-3/4, 7-3/4, and 11-1/2 on the long side.
  • Score at 2" on both ends of 8-1/2" side for top and bottom.
  • The top will be turned to the inside for support.
  • The bottom will be cut as shown in the video to form the box bottom.

Makeover-handmade-gift-box

If you're curious about the towels that are used for these projects, I really love the Pioneer Woman brand towels and I have also used towels from Hobby Lobby and JoAnn Fabrics.  You can see another of these towel packaging projects HERE.

If you're ready to create this project yourself, you can find the supplies listed below.  If you do not have a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator, I would be honored if you chose to order from me.  Each order from my online store allows me to continue to share with you.  Thank you for your support of my business.

Now that you've seen how you can make a handmade gift box for a special presentation, visit the online store to get your supplies!
