IM57 – Bloom by Bloom

Happy Monday everyone! Happy first Monday in February and it’s time for our first Inspiration Monday of February!  We are starting off the month with a pretty dress to inspire you…

Okay…I have to admit this…this is the second card I made for this challenge.  I LOVED my first one, but decided I needed to keep it cleaner than the other one I did.  So here’s my second card and I think works perfectly for the challenge…

Here’s the details…

  • Whisper White – 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 folded
  • Balmy Blue Gingham print – 1/2 x 5 1/2, add to card front
  • Whisper White – 3 1/2 x 4 3/4, stamp dotted line in Night of Navy and greeting in Basic Grey, add to card front using dimensionals
  • Whisper White – stamp flower 3 times using Balmy Blue and Leaves using Soft Seafoam, cut out, layer and add to card front
  • Night of Navy – punch out 3 Bitty Blooms (punch pack), add to card front using Glue Dots
  • Add Basic Rhinestones to center of each Night of Navy flower to finish off

Next up from the 2019 Occasions Catalog is our Geared Up Garage Collection of tutorials! Isn’t this a great bundle, LOVE those Garage Gear Thinlits…so different from anything Stampin’ Up! has offered before! We have three cards (one a special fold) and a wonderful treat 3D project, all designed by Connie and Mary! See all the details HERE!

And…did you know that besides our current collection, you can still get the pdfs of our other collections too! Details can be found here!

Valentine Favor

Happy Saturday! We have made it through the Polar Vortez and now for the GREAT THAW!!  DANG…it was COLD!  But now for our warming trend – LOL!!!  And to warm you up today our theme for this week’s Create with Connie and Mary Saturday Blog Hop is Valentine Favors.  I’ve been wanting to make one of these for a while and was surprized at just how easy it was.  If you want directions for this just Google Self-Closing Treat Box.

Isn’t this little skunk just ‘stinkin’ sweet’?  I think so.  (And if you want more GREAT treat box ideas with this set check out our Hey Love Treat Box collection – you can still purchase the .pdf!)

Here’s some general details…

  • Crumb Cake – I used a piece 4 3/4 x 6 1/2 (like I said above just Google self-closing treat box and you will get directions for scoring) then put together
  • All My Love DSP – TWO pieces 2 3/4 x 2 3/4 again cut per directions you find in your search and add to your treat box
  • Stamp Hey Valentine on top using Memento Black ink
  • Whisper White – stamp skunk using Memento Black, color using Smoky Slate, Flirty Flamingo and Real Red Blends, cut out with layering circle, layer onto matching Lovely Lipstick matching Scallop Circle.
  • Wrap some Black/Silver ribbon behind circles then add to box front
  • Lovely Lipstick – 1/2 x 1 1/2, stamp greeting using Memento Black, cut into banner, add to circle.
  • Tie a little bow using Lovely Lipstick 1/8″ grosgrain ribbon and add to top of box to finish off

Is this just cute or what!
