Dsp special

I am featuring the lovely Fruit Stand Designer Series paper. To be honest, this wasn't a paper that immediately caught my eye, but I received a small sample in a team product share and when I was looking for a paper to use for this card set, the bright colours really caught my eye and now I really like and have ordered a whole pack as part of the special so I can use more of it!

My project is a card box which holds four mini cards and envelopes. The box and envelopes are made using our Envelope Punch Board.

The box and envelope colour is Cucumber Crush and the card colour Flirty Flamingo which coordinate perfectly with the Fruit Stand DSP. The other colours featured in the DSP are Daffodil Delight, Peekaboo Peach, Pear Pizazz, Tangerine Tango, Watermelon Wonder and Whisper White.

The box holds four mini cards and handmade envelopes. The cards are 3.5" x 3.5" and the envelopes are made using the Envelope Punch Board starting with a piece of 6x6" DSP from the 2015-2016 InColour Paper Stack.

Here's some quick instructions to make the card box using the Envelope Punch Board.

Start with a piece of cardstock 8" x 8". Stamp on this if you wish. I have stamped some of the smaller images from Blooms and Wishes stamp set using Cucumber Crush ink.

Box 1

Place the top left corner at the 3.5" mark on the punch board. Score and punch.

Box 2

Move the top left corner I" to the left (to the 4.5" position) and score and punch again.

Box 3

Rotate the cardstock 90 degrees anticlockwise. You don't need to pay attention to the ruler at the top anymore, just line up each of the score marks and punch and score.

Box 4

Rotate and do this on the other two sides. Using a pair of paper snips, cut sideways on the bottom tabs so they fold inwards, and cut down on the top tabs so they fold downwards as shown.

Box 5

Use a bone folder to crease each of the scored lines, Apply adhesive to the outside of the bottom flap.


Fold to close the side flaps over the bottom tab (place your bone folder inside the box and press down on a flat surface to apply pressure for better adhesion). The box closes with the addition of a belly band.

Happy World Card Making Day and 2 new Stampin' Up! Specials for October

Cardmaking is pretty cool right? I mean we get great 'me time' while we are making the card and get to express our creativity, and then we get to pop that in an envelope and send (or give) those happy wishes in the card to someone else, so those good feelings happen all over again.

Before I started making cards, my card giving was limited to Christmas, birthdays, weddings and new baby's. I'm excited I have now had my eyes opened to so many other great reasons to send a card. Some of my favourite reasons to send a card are 'hello' or 'just because'. I think it's the unexpected nature of those cards that appeal to me as a sender. I also love to send thank you cards and congratulations cards (which I send a lot of with an amazing team like the one I have). There's so many reasons to send a card.

For 5 days only (October 1-5), Stampin' Up! have some great card-making items on special. Don't miss out on these great bargains.

You can shop them in my Online Store HERE.

Stampin' Up! Australia: The Envelope Punch Board

I'm not usually a gadget girl, but I have had lots of fun playing with the Envelope Punch Board! This has just been released for sale today to Stampin' Up! customers in Australia. Here are some projects I made with it, using the Soho Subway Designer Series Paper.

Stampin Up Envelope Punch Board Australia

It can make all sorts of nifty things, but was primarily designed for creating envelopes in 60 different sizes. Coordinating your patterned paper with your cards looks so cute. Here are a couple of mini gift cards I made. I wanted to keep the cards flat and simple, so they would fit in the gift box I was making.

The gift box was made using a video by Kellie Gettlefinger I saw on Pinterest (you can check out my collected samples and videos in my Envelope Punch Board PinBoard on Pinterest) .

My final project was a file folder card with the Envelope Punch Board, using the instructions in the video by Patty Bennet. I found this simple to do and will be making lots of these I think! I also added a matching envelope. I love how you can make the envelopes so easily for so many different sizes of cards. Just love that grungy vintage Soho Subway DSP too!
