Geared Up Pizza Box & Card

This is another project we did at Kursten’s Bingo Event last Saturday. Its pretty simple. She used the Butterfly Botanical (black and white side, no butterflies for this manly project, LOL) for the top and sides, added the Black Foil Gears,  then the Stitched Shape Circle in Real Read, and stamped the car in Memento Black onto Smoky Slate cardstock, die cut and popped up with Dimensionals. The sentiment was stamped with Smoky Slate Ink onto a piece of Whisper White, 3/4″ x 3 1/2″. I tucked it right under the tires of the car. For the last detail added a wrench from the Classic Garage Metal Elements. You can find this suite on pages 42 & 43 of the Occasions Catalog.

When you are adding dsp to the sides of your Pizza box, you will add them like in the photo below. You’d think you should add them to the front panels, but they get covered up when you put the box together.

This is a perfect gift for Father’s Day or a Masculine Birthday Gift. Just add a gift card.  DONE!

My Stamp Club Gals have been asking for masculine cards, they are soooooo hard for me. But I guess I can’t add flowers and ribbon to all the cards I make……..So I took inspiration from Kursten’s Pizza Box. What do you think?

The card base is 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ Basic Grey Cardstock, scored at 4 1/4′. I used the Classic Garage DSP,  cut at 4″ x 5 1/4′, Black Foil Gears, Crushed Curry Stitched Shape Circle, car stamped with Memento Black Ink onto Smoky Slate cardstock. The sentiment is also Memento Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, cut at 5/8″ x 4″.

When I cut the dsp for the card front I had these 3/4″ strips left over and thought, why not put it on the inside of the card.

Don’t forget to add a Classic Garage Metal Element to the sentiment. I used the key for this one, but there are also wrenches that would work too.

Hopping By to Just Say Hi

Last Saturday I attended Kursten del Rosario’s Bingo Event. It was so much fun! Can’t tell you the last time I played Bingo. We did 4 projects and played 6 or 7 Bingo’s. I won the first Bingo and won the Best Bunny stamp set and the matching Bunny Builder Punch. I was so excited because you can no longer get either of these items. Once Stampin’ Up! ran out they discontinued both. I knew I wanted to use them both at Stamp Club this month. Then I was thinking I would give them to the first person in my Club who placed a  $75 order. Sheilah jumped at the chance and received the bundle for FREE.

Now on to the cards…..

The card in front is the one we made at Bingo. The second layer is embossed with the Subtles Embossing Folder. The sentiment is from the Best Bunny Stamp set stamped in Smoky Slate. The bunnies were punched used the Gingham Gala DSP. The bow is the Sale-a-bration Organdy Ribbon.

I glued each bunny together with Tombow Liquid Glue and popped it up with Dimensionals.

For my other card I die cut a Rectangle Stitched & used the Tufted Embossing Folder. Then a piece of the Organdy Sale-a-bration Ribbon, then the bunnies. My greeting is from Itty Bitty Bitty Greetings and punched with the Classic Label Punch.

Both cards we stamped the tail in Smoky Slate and punched with the Bunny Punch.

I gave my club gals the option of doing either card. I don’t know what I’m going to do when the Gingham Gala paper retires. It’s so popular that Stampin’ Up! can’t seem to keep it in stock for very long.

I should also mention, that I don’t usually post projects with products that you can no longer get, but since its almost Easter and many of you might already have these products I said, why not?

Designer Series Paper Fun Fold Card

Have you made any cards with the Happiness Blooms Memories & More? These cards are used for cards and pocket scrapbooking. Oh my goodness. The ideas are endless. Once you figure out which cards you are using, its easy to put together these cards.  Thanks to Patty Bennett for this fabulous Fun Fold Card.

Lets start with the card in the back.

You start with a piece of Happiness Blooms DSP, cut at 5 1/4″ x 11 1/2″, score: 4″ , 6 3/4″, & 9 1/2″.  The front panel folds so the backside of the DSP shows.  Then adhere the other end to the back panel. The back panel is 4 1/4″ x 5 1/2″, I used Calypso Coral cardstock.  That is your basic card. Now its time to decorate!

I used one of the 3″ x 4″ cards for the front and matted it with a 3 1/4″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Call Me Clover cardstock. I fussy cut the flower from one of the sheets of dsp and also punched out with a 2″ Circle Punch. That is matted onto the Starburst Punch in Calypso Coral cardstock.  The sentiment is a sticker from the Memories & More Card Pack.

I added another card from the package to the back panel. I covered up the words at the top with some of the flower stickers.

That’s it! This is a great way to use up all that DSP you’ve been hoarding, I mean saving. LOL! I don’t know why I save so much dsp, just use it!

Here I used the Happiness Blooms Memories & More Cards and Envelopes, (at the bottom of page 26 in the Occasions Catalog). These are super fast. You’ve already got your card base, pick a card to go on the front, stamp the Sentiment twice, (from the Amazing Life Stamp Set),  one you will die cut with the Stitched Shapes Framelits (largest oval) and the other you will fussy cut out the “to have you in my”. Pop that up with some Mini Dimensionals and adhere to the Largest Scalloped Oval in the Layering Ovals. I used Night of Navy for the top card and Call Me Clover for the bottom card. Punch out 3 flowers from the Bitty Blooms Punch Pack and add the Happiness Blooms Enamel Dots in the center. You can see all these items on pages, 25-26 of the Occasions Catalog.
