3D Thursday: Sweet Strawberry Back to School Teacher Treat Box

This week, we have Guest Designer Lisa Flemming joining us for 3D Thursday! Lisa has created this adorable Sweet Strawberry Treat Box using the Sweet Strawberry Bundle. She made this project as a back to school item for teachers, but this really could be used for many other recipients and occasions as well!

I have always loved the combo of black, white, and red together. It’s so striking, and depending on what else is added to it, can be used for anything from fun and casual to very elegant. While this project is a little more fun, I’ve seen the colors used in weddings, and they are just so gorgeous together! Lisa also added some pops of yellow and green, which look great with her project as well!

3D Thursday: Pyramid Gift Box

It’s Thursday again, AND my birthday, so I decided to make a birthday themed project for my turn for 3D Thursday! This little Pyramid Gift Box was fun to make!

I used bright and fun patterns from the NEW Pattern Party Designer Series Paper, and a template that was based on a combiation of our retired Curvy Keppskaes Box and a pattern built into my Brother Scan n’ Cut! It was super easy to make! I kept mine simple, with only minimal decoration and embellishments, but it could definitely be dressed up more according to the occasion!

This project was made with a template (which is provided on my project sheet), and measures about 3-1/2 inches square on the bottom and about 3-1/2 inches tall as shown. The size can easily be adjusted by enlarging or reducing the template before using it! I will also say that due to the shape of this box, it’s best for small, flat gifts, or something that is narrow in the middle, as the sides slope up and will not close if the gift is too wide. I had initally tried to put a ring box in, but it wouldn’t close, so I switched to a small jewelry pouch instead:

Color Fusers Blog Hop for April 2021

Hello, and Happy Spring! Welcome to our Color Fusers Blog Hop for April. Today we have a pretty combination of Seaside Spray, Old Olive, and Real Red to share with you!

My card today features NEW Designer Series Paper from the upcoming Annual Catalog. It’s the Regals color family paper, and I used one of the designs in Real Red for my background. I used two stamps from the Painted Poppies stamp sets and stamped them all over the DSP in White Craft ink, then heat embossed them with White Embossing Powder. I then layered that over Basic White and layered both over a Real Red base. I stamped some of the paint spatters from the Painted Poppies set along the right side of the base in Versamark ink before mounting the layers onto the card.

I tied a piece of Old Olive ribbon from the Ornate Garden Ribbon Combo Pack, and tied a little bow, which I then secured with Linen Thread and left the ends loose for a little more detail. The sentiment was stamped In Seaside Spray ink, and is from the You Are Amazing stamp set. It’s punched with the Rectangular Postage Stamp Punch and mounted to the front of the card with Stampin’ Dimensionals. I also stamped the inside with another image from the Painted Poppies stamp set, and repeated the same image on the envelope as well.

Measurements for this card are as follows:

Real Red cardstock base: 4-1/4 x 11 (scored at 5-1/2 and folded in half)

Basic White cardstock middle layer: 3-3/8 x 4-3/4 inches

Regals DSP top layer in Real Red: 3-1/8 x 4-1/2 inches

Basic White sentiment piece: 1-3/8 x 2 inches (approximate)

Basic White insert: 4 x 5-1/4 inches

To finish my card, I added a few clear Elegant Faceted gems. I love the little extra sparkle they give this card!
