Stampin’ Dreams, Anything but a CARD

Good Morning friends! Welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop for March. You are visiting Jenn Charles and I hope you are enjoying hopping through all the blogs today and getting ideas on Anything OTHER than a card!

I was trying to come up for an idea for Stamp Camp this weekend because we are making an Easter card and treat holder and I saw these little baskets all over Pinterest and had to make one of my own. They are so simple! I’m using up the last of my Berry Blessing DSP to show this project because I am giving a bunch away at my Bingo and I wanted to give ideas to those of you who are hoarding it…lol.

I cut the strawberry and flower straight from the DSP. They are so cute. The sentiment comes from the Sweet Strawberry stamp set.

This little basket is really so so simple! I made this one using a 6×6 piece of cardstock scored at 2 and 4 inches on both sides. I then had 9 equal squares and cut on 2 sides. Then I matched the corners together and viola! My handle is cut at 3/4″x6″. I really hope you try this basket for Easter.

Thank you for visiting me today. I really do hope you hop along to everyone and check out lots of inspiration. Everyone is so talented!
Your BFF,

Technique Tuesday – Ribbons!

Welcome to the Crafty Collaboration, Technique Tuesday Blog Hop. Today’s technique is with ribbon. I’m not a big ribbon user other than the occasional bow so this was out of my comfort zone. I looked up a lot of different techniques and had fun but this one was my favorite.

I learned how to make this beautiful ribbon tie on youtube. I’ve posted the link here if you’d like to learn also. She makes it super easy.

I used the Blackberry Bliss striped ribbon that matches perfectly with the Ice Cream Corner designer series paper in the coordinating suite. I die cut all the paper with the Stitched Rectangles. Such a simple card with a dramatic ribbon design…lol.

Hop along today with the rest of the participants to get other ideas on how to creatively use ribbon. Stampin’ Up! ribbon always coordinates with our colored cardstock and other accessories.

Thank you for stopping by!

Sweets & Treats

Welcome to March’s Global Stamping Friends blog hop! Today we are focusing on Sweets & Treats. Yum…chocolate! LOL. Is there any other sweets I’d consider? Yes, I love all candy! But the Nothing’s Better Than Bundle is a must have for sweets and treat boxes.

I had been wanting to make this box style for a long time now. The directions and box came from The Paper Pixie. She has a fantastic video tutorial on YouTube. Click here to watch it.

The designer series paper I’ve used is going to be in the 2021 Annual Catalog. It’s the 2020-2022 In-Color Designer Series Paper. It was available as a pre-order for me as a demo or you could get it free if you signed up as a demonstrator during Sale-A-Bration. So consider this a sneak peek! Isn’t it perfect for the chocolate though?

It holds 3 pieces of Ghiradelli chocolate and 5 nuggets. I’ve wrapped them to match because it’s more fun but you don’t have to. I’ve chosen gold wrapped candy to match. I used a mini magnet to hold it closed attached with a glue dot.

Thank you for hopping along with me today. Up Next is Jan Musselman.

Butterfly Bouquet Bundle

Welcome to a the Butterfly Bouquet Blog Hop. You are visiting Jenn Charles. These butterflies have really captured my heart. Especially the designer series paper. I am in love!

I made these cards last night on my live. Super simple 3×3 cards you can hand out to anyone and really make their day.

My favorite part of this suite so far is how you can take the butterfly die and cut the pieces perfectly from the designer series paper.

Here’s how I used those butterflies. I brushed them with some Wink of Stella also but it’s hard to see in the photos. I think the Wink of Stella glitter brush is a must have with butterflies 🙂

Thank you so much for visiting. Take some time and look through all the blogs below. The inspiration is amazing!

Your BFF,

Share and Enjoy !
