Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad January Blog Hop!

Blog Hop Banner January 2013

Good day to you and welcome to the January edition of the Stylin’ Stampin’ Squad Blog Hop featuring products from the Stampin’ Up! 2013 Spring Catalog. We have some great projects in store for you today! If you are following the tour you have arrived here from Terry Blais‘ blog, didn’t she have some great stuff to share with you? I have two projects for you today, a card and a box that would be great for some chocolates!

First up we have the card. The base of it is Raspberry Ripple Card Stock. The background is created with the Woodgrain Background Stamp, in Summer Starfruit, and some Whisper White Card Stock. A strip of paper from the Print Poetry Designer Series Paper Stack goes across the bottom. The flowers and leaves are from the Secret Garden Stamp Set and are cut out with the Secret Garden Framelits Dies. The leaves are stamped in Gumball Green and the flowers in Raspberry Ripple on Primrose Petals. I used the Boho Blossom Punch for the centers in Summer Starfruit and a Basic Jewel Pearl is adhered in the middle of each. The flowers are mounted to the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. For the greeting I stamped the happy birthday from the Made for You Stamp Set in Raspberry Ripple. I love the woodgrain as a background for the flowers and the framelits make cutting them out so easy. I have a few people in mind that might like this for their birthday!

Next we have a box. It definitely would be great for some chocolates but you could also fit a host of other more “precious” gifts inside. The box measures 3 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ x 1 1/2″ and is created using Crumb Cake Card Stock and my Simply Scored Scoring Tool. To decorate the box I used the Adorning Accents Textured Impressions Embossing Folders with some Primrose Petals. The flags are made from pieces of More Amore Specialty Designer Series Paper. For the heart I stamped the image from the You are Loved Stamp Set in Primrose Petals and cut it out with the Hearts Collection Framelits Dies. I pierced around the edge with the Occasions Paper-Piercing Pack and Paper-Piercing Tool and adhered it to the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals. The love is from the same set and is stamped in Pool Party and Primrose Petals. I used the Decorative Label Punch and the Large Oval Punch to punch them out and layered them for more dimension. I still vote that we fill the box with some chocolate!
