Wildflower Fields Card Ensemble!
Explore using the Wildflower Fields Designer Series Paper and Flowering Fields Stamp Set from Sale-A-Bration while making this lovely set of cards and coordinating portfolio box. This ensemble features six unique card designs showing off how to use these beautiful products. Make it to stock up on your own cards or package them up in the portfolio box to give as a gift to someone special. This would make an excellent hostess gift or class project!
Home Sweet Home Wreath & Card!
The start of Spring brings the home-buying season. Are you in need of a house-warming gift for someone in your life? This wreath would make a perfect house-warming gift and the card would make the gift complete. The wreath is made with an embroidery hoop, and the beautiful Botanical Gardens Suite of products. The card coordinates perfectly with the wreath.
Birthday Bouquet Card Set!
Birthday cards are needed all year long, and this ensemble includes six cards featuring soft watercolor florals, polka dots, and stripes from the Birthday Bouquet Product Suite. In addition, this handy decorated box will hold six cards that are lightly embellished and six envelopes. This makes a super cute gift to be used for birthdays or you can always change up the sentiment to create a thank you gift box for a totally different look. Also, a great class idea for Demonstrators.
On The Farm Puppet Gift Set!
Spring is on its way, with rainy weather and plenty of indoor play days. The On the Farm Puppet Gift Set is the perfect way to spend an afternoon inside. Little ones will be entertained for hours as they use their imagination and play with darling animal puppets. The cheerful puppet theater hangs around the neck of the performer making it easy to put on shows that will brighten rainy days and delight audiences of all ages. The matching card makes this the perfect birthday gift for the child in your life, or change the sentiment on the card and give this gift set for any occasion!
Flower Topiary Gift Set!
This gift ensemble screams spring and is sure to bring a smile to someone’s face. The topiary is made using punches, plus die cuts and of course a little bling. The cutest thing about the topiary is that the bottom box opens in the front and you can put in a few pieces of chocolate or tuck another little gift in there. The Birthday Card is embossed; water colored, fussy cut and layered plus the envelope is lined with Designer Series Paper (DSP). It’s so relaxing to paint the flower with Aqua Painters and having layers adds dimension. The little gift tag and bag finish the ensemble then you are ready to give this set to a special someone. Bonus is the cute little Lady Bug.
“I’ve Got Your Number” Flash Cards & Game!
Learning and fun should go hand in hand, and this brightly colored set of number flash cards will make learning so much fun. You’ll make two sets of cards using the Number of Years Bundle and Schoolhouse Designer Series Paper, so the cards can be used for matching and memory games as well as flash cards. The top and bottom of the storage box fit flush together, making it easy for smaller fingers to open, while the inner liner holds the cards in place. Add the belly band and greeting card, and it can be a fun gift as well as a learning tool.
All-Occasion Balloon Celebration Party Decor!
Balloons are the perfect, and most versatile type of Party Décor! Make this set in Pool Party to work for any Birthday Party, Shower or any type of Celebration! Or change up the colors to suit the occasion you need it for! In the tutorial you’ll learn two ways to make altered versions of the Mini Treat Bag – one will be the Gusseted Mini Treat Bag, perfect for any party favor or treat you want to give your guest! You’ll also make the essentials of a place setting – a Plastic Utensil Pocket (the second altered version of the Mini Treat Bag), a Place Card and a Water Bottle Sleeve. And the coordinating Cupcake Picks will add that special touch to your yummy cupcakes! Plus, all of the measurements make this so easy to create bundles of each!
The projects in this tutorial are simple enough for new stampers, and the treats themselves will make anyone feel “tea-riffic”! Whether you need just a pretty card (adorned with charms, of course) or an ensemble of treats, this might be the perfect project! Create a package to hold an assortment of tea bags, a tea cup-shaped bookmark, and a box of cookies shaped like tea bags. This ensemble wouldn’t be complete with a note card, and the tutorial even includes a pretty way to prevent the string from a tea bag from falling into a cup!
Gift Card Envelopes…with Glimmer!
Spring and summer are on the way, and that often means lots of gift and gift card giving occasions. This project features the B.Y.O.P. Stamp Set and the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits to create envelopes for five gift card occasions! Using the same general sketch, this project combines designer series papers, glimmer paper and simple, varied embellishments to create gift card envelopes that shine…in no time!
