Patty’s Card Box

Yesterday a few of us were honored to celebrate with our friend/team leader her 2 million in career sales. Many of the Demonstrators in Patty’s group contributed money towards a Brighton Gift card and made cards for Patty.  I will share the card I made for her tomorrow. Today I’m going to share the box I decorated to put all the cards I received for Patty.

Its not a celebration unless you have cake, right? White Chocolate Raspberry cake from Just Bundt Cakes. It was delicious!

I started with a piece of Shimmery Cardstock and sponged, Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral & Petal Pink Ink. We refer to these colors as “Patty” colors. lol

Flowers for Patty's Box, Scallop Heart Punch, Spiral Flower (retired)die, Leaf Punch, Vellum, Shimmery White cardstock, Gold Embossing Powder

Then I punched out a bunch of the Scallop Hearts, spritzed them with rubbing alcohol & Shimmer Paint, scrunched them up and let them dry.

Really, I can’t believe I didn’t take a photo when I was putting them together……I used our Silicone Mat and hot glued the bottom of the hearts together offsetting them as I went. Once I got the flower big enough and the way I wanted, I cupped them in my hand and scrunched a little more. Then I dipped the tips of the flower into Versamark Ink (again no photo….) and Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.

For the inside of each flower I took a piece of Black cardstock, 2″ x 8 1/2″, scored at 1″ and adhered together so now you have         1″ x 8 1/2″. I took our old Fringe Scissors (you could also just cut with regular scissors) and cut into about 1/2″. Then rolled up adhering with hot glue every so often. Fan out the fringe part and glue the opposite end to the center of your flower.

For the smaller roses I used a retired (a LONG time ago when we had the big thick dies) Spiral Flower Die. It is one retired item I pull out every so often. I die cut 3 each of Poppy Parade, Calypso Coral & Petal Pink and sponged with same color. I spritzed each one and scrunched up into a ball and let dry. I used my Heat Tool to speed up the drying time.  Then rolled each one up and glued together with hot glue.  I flattened each flower a little and dipped into Versamark Pad and then into Gold Embossing Powder and heat set.

I used a bunch of the leaves from the Poppy Moments Dies in Old Olive and Mossy Meadow. Each one was also sponged with same colors. I punched some Vellum leaves with the Leaf Punch and again, dipped in my Versamark Pad and then Gold Embossing Powder and heat set. I made the bow using Petal Pink 1/4″ Metallic Edge Ribbon & 5/8″ Petal Pink Organdy Striped Ribbon. The bow maker I used is called Pro Bow, the Hand. Its really made for using larger ribbon, but I made it work fine for this ribbon. I  added the flowers and leaves with hot glue, placing the leaves randomly around the flowers.

I found the box at Michael’s. I loved the saying on the side, ENJOY every little thing. I was going to decorate a basket, but when I saw this I knew it would be better. Now Patty can  keep all her celebration cards in one place.

I finished off the top with some Clear Epoxy Droplets that I colored with Dark Poppy Parade Stampin’ Blend. The sentiment comes from the Peaceful Moments stamp set, its embossed with Gold Embossing Powder. I think I went back and splattered some Wink of Stella by using the lid on the whole thing.

I decided to add some Petal Pink Small Blossoms (SAB) all around. I had all ready taken my photos when I decided to add them.

So once again, so proud to be a part of Patty’s downline and get to celebrate her milestone. She is the 6th person in Stampin’ Up! to achieve 2 million in career Sales. WOW!

Positive Thoughts Meets Pigment Sprinkles

I had done these two sheets for another project (that didn’t work out), (sometimes that happens….) using the Pigment Sprinkles & Shimmery Cardstock, so I thought why not use them with the Positive Thoughts Stamp Set & the Nature’s Thoughts Dies (Coordination Product Release).

My card base is, 4 1/4″ x 11″ scored at 5 1/2″ in Bermuda Bay Cardstock. The Granny Apple Green is 3″ x 4 1/2″, and the Whisper White piece is die cut from the Nature’s Thought Dies, you will need two of them.  The Dies are while supplies last or until March 31st. I love this stamp set and love it even more with the matching dies.

Attach the Whisper White layer to the Granny Apple Green layer and add dimensionals and attach to card base. Next I took my Stamparatus and inked up Memento Black Ink and stamped on the 2 sheets I showed above. I used my Stamparatus because I knew I would need to re-stamp a couple of times. I wanted the black to be really dark. So I stamped the leaves & flower twice and die cut with the matching Nature’s Thoughts Dies.

With my Granny Apple Green & Pretty Peacock Stampin’ Blends I splattered ink on the top of the Whisper White piece. (You should do this before you attach to your card base.

You will need a 1″ x 4 1/4″ piece of Basic Black cardstock. Use Versamark Ink and stamp towards the left side (so you can add a flower) and emboss with White Embossing Powder. Place a Dimensional on each end and add it about a quarter of the way up.

Positive Thoughts, Nature's Thoughts Dies, Pigment Sprinkles, Shimmer cardstock, Big Shot

Now that you have everything stamped, you can start adding the leaves with Glue Dots and tuck them under the sentiment. I also tucked one of the flowers on the bottom. Add the other flower with a couple of Dimensionals and attach to the right side of the sentiment.

To finish off I added a double Whisper White Baker’s Twine bow and some Noble Peacock Rhinestones.

The Nature’s Dies also have a couple of extra Dies, like this little butterfly and the small leaves. I used Tombow Liquid Glue to attach to another one of the Whisper White pieces for the inside.
