3D Thursday: Tropical Oasis Box

Aloha from Connecticut! How I wish we were having beautiful, tropical weather, but unfortunately, it’s cold and rainy here. YUCK. For 3D Thursday this week, we have Guest Designer Cathy Williams joining us! Cathy is a demonstrator from California, and she has created this beautiful tropical themed gift box using items from the NEW Tropical Oasis Suite! The new suite can be viewed on pages 38-40 of the January – June 2020 Mini Catalog, or you can view the entire suite online HERE.

Here’s a few additional pictures of her gorgeous project!


This would be such a great project to make for someone who is planning a trip to Hawaii, or for favors for a Hawaiian/Tropical themed party or wedding!

3D Thursday: Valentine’s Mini Pizza Box

It’s Thursday again (already!), and that means it’s time for another 3D Thursday project! This week, it was my turn to create, and since we’ve all been sick in my house (even the cat), I needed something relatively quick and easy to make for my post. So I came up with this decorated Mini Pizza Box! Since Valentine’s Day is right around the corner, I decided to go with a Valentine’s theme, but it can easily be adapted for any occasion, just by switching up papers, images , and sentiments!

Here are step by step instructions for creating this cute little treat box:

1. Assemble the Mini Pizza Box. Cut two pieces of 3-1/4 x 3-1/4 inch pieces of From My Heart Specialty DSP. (One will be used on the top of the Mini Pizza Box and the other will be used to line the bottom of the inside of the box.) Use Snail Adhesive to attach one to the top of the box and one to the inside.

2. Place 5 foil wrapped chocolate hearts (or other treat of your choice) in the box.

3. Close the box and wrap a piece of ribbon around the box so that it wraps around all four sides and closes the box tight. Attach the ends of the ribbon to the top of the box using mini glue dots. Attach a Heart Doily to the top with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

4. Stamp the sentiment in Real Red and the arrow in Flirty Flamingo onto Shimmery White cardstock. Punch the heart with the small heart from the Heart Punch Pack. Fussy cut the arrow using Paper Snips.

5. Lay the arrow over the doily and adhere with glue dots. Then, attach the heart sentiment over it with dimensionals.

6. Apply three small epoxy hearts to the sentiment piece and color them with Flirty Flamingo Stampin’ Blends to add a little more color and detail. Attach the full completed heart to the top of the box using dimensionals, and the project is complete!

Here’s a quick peek at the inside of the box:

Color Fusers Blog Hop for January 2020

It’s the first Monday of the month, and that means it’s time for our Color Fusers Blog Hop! This month, we’ve got a great combo of Blueberry Bushel, Rich Razzleberry, Basic Gray, and Basic Black to share with you!

I have always loved music! When I was younger, I played the flute and piccolo in the school band, and I was voted Most Musical my senior year of high school. It’s been a long time since I’ve played, but I’ve always loved anything with music notes, or a sheet music theme. So when I saw the new Music From the Heart stamp set, it was one of the first things I put on my new catalog wish list! It includes 19 stamps, and it’s a photopolymer set, so it makes it very easy to line up those little notes on the staff. Here’s a peek at the full set:

I just LOVE the hand drawn look of this set!

I decided to make this card on the simple side, and instead dressed it up a bit with some epoxy hearts and extra shimmer. I used Shimmery White card stock for the top layer, then used Basic Gray for the middle, and Basic Black as my base. I did a light watercolor wash using Rich Razzleberry ink, let it dry, then stamped the staff in Basic Gray. I then stamped the clef and notes in StazOn Black ink. (Quick tip for the notes: instead of stamping each note individually, I placed the three note stamps face down where I wanted them, then pressed ONE block onto all three of them before inking them up. This allowed me to stamp all three at once, and get perfect placement as well!) I then stamped the birds and sentiment in Blueberry Bushel ink, added two epoxy hearts (the small one was colored with my dark Rich Razzleberry Stampin’ Blends marker), then I added a little Wink of Stella to both hearts and birds for some extra shimmer. The card was finished with a simple crinkle ribbon wrapped around the base. It’s also hard to tell from the pictures, but the top and middle layers are raised off the base a bit with Black Stampin’ Dimensionals, to give it just a little height and make the whole thing pop a bit!

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Basic Black card stock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Basic Gray card stock middle layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches

Shimmery White card stock top layer: 3-1/2 x 4-3/4 inches

This set is now available, along with many other fantastic new products, in the new January-June Mini Catalog! Combined with the new Sale-a-Bration brochure, there are many, many fantastic new products available! (Take a peek at both using the links to the right.) Shop during Sale-a-Bration, and earn a FREE item for every $50 purchase (before tax and shipping) now through March 31st!

3D Thursday: A Fun Golf Themed Gift Box

So I have a confession to make. This post is a week late. This project from Guest Designer Rick Adkins was supposed to be posted on December 19th, and I completely forgot to post it. So I guess it’s better late than never! Rick’s project features NEW products from the upcoming 2020 Spring Mini Catalog, which you are all going to LOVE! Let’s take a peek at what he has created!

I just love this project! The colors are so bright and fun, and if you know anyone who loves golf, this would be a perfect little box to create for them. Rick added a tag for Father’s Day, however, this could easily be used for any occasion just by switching up the sentiment on the tag!

Color Fusers Blog Hop for December 2019

Welcome to our Color Fusers Blog Hop for December! Today we have a cool combo of Silver, Seaside Spray, and Blueberry Bushel to share! For my card, I created glittery silver snowflakes on a background of Seaside Spray script, embellished with Seaside Spray ribbon and Blueberry Bushel rhinestones.

This card uses a combination of products from both the Annual and Holiday Catalogs. My background stamp is from the Very Versailles stamp set, and the Blueberry Bushel rhinestones are from the Noble Peacock Rhinestones, both from the Annual Catalog. The snowflakes were cut from the Christmas Layers Dies and the ribbon is the Seaside Spray 1/4″ Metallic Ribbon, both of which can be found in the Holiday Catalog. Shimmery White cardstock was used as my white. The extra shimmer adds a nice touch to this card, and is my favorite white to use for Christmas and Holiday cards!

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Blueberry Bushel cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)

Shimmery White cardstock top layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches

Silver Glimmer Paper piece for snowflakes: 4 x 4 inches (cut all three snowflake pieces from the same piece)

I finished this card by adding a shimmery white insert with a holiday greeting from the #Elfie stamp set (not shown), stamped some snowflakes on a white envelope, and now it’s ready to send! I hope you like it!
