3D Thursday: Ornate Style Dressed to Impress Mini Purse

Today, we have Guest Designer Sara Levin joining us for 3D Thursday! She has created this super cute mini purse using items from the Ornate Garden and Best Dressed suites!

I love the look of the gold foil against the Mint Macaron background. This would be such a cute container for bridal shower favors or treats, or for a princess themed party for little ones! You can find full instructions and a supply list on Sara’s FREE project sheet. Click HERE to download, or click on the image below:

Such a cute, fun project!

3D Thursday: Mug Mix Treat Holder

Does anyone else feel like the week flies by? Every time I sit down to do my weekly post for 3D Thursday, I feel like I just did the previous week’s. Maybe it’s just because we’ve all been stuck at home for a month and I’m going a little stir crazy! 🙂

Today, we have Guest Designer Sherri Everett Bishop joining us! Sherri is a demonstrator friend of mine from Maine, and she has created this fun Mug Mix Treat Holder. If you’re not familiar with mug mix, it’s a single serving cake or other dessert mix that you add to a mug, add a couple of simple ingredients, and then pop in the microwave for a minute or so. They are PERFECT when you are craving something sweet but don’t have the time (or the willpower) to make a whole cake/pan of brownies/sheet of cookies!

Here’s what Sherri has created for us today:

Here’s a peek at the inside:

The package of mug mix nests right in the little insert she has created on the inside, and then the bottom folds up and ties with a bow to hold everything together. What a great design and a great way to send someone a sweet treat!

Here’s a close up of the greeting and design on the front:

Wouldn’t the front of Sherri’s project also make a beautiful card? I think so!

This project features products from the NEW Ornate Garden Suite, which is available now in the online store, and is also one of the many new gorgeous suites available in the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog! (Which I got to see yesterday and you are going to LOVE!)

If you would like to make this project yourself, you can download Sherri’s FREE project sheet HERE or by clicking on the image below. There are so many fun ways you can make these, just by switching up the colors and paper!

Thanks for stopping by today! Have a great day!

3D Thursday: Matchbook Treat Holder

Easter is right around the corner, and though it may look different this year due to COVID-19, there is still reason to celebrate! Wendy Lee created a cheery Easter themed Matchbook Treat Holder for this week’s project. She used products from the NEW Ornate Garden Suite, which can now be found in the online store! Take a look at her super cute project:

Isn’t this just so cute? This would totally brighten someone’s day! I love the colors, and the bunny is so sweet and cheery. I’m sure we could all use a little extra cheer right now!

Wendy’s project was created using the NEW Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper, as well as the Welcome Easter stamp set. The Ornate Garden Suite is an early release from the upcoming 2020-2021 Annual Catalog, and includes stamps, paper, embellishments, and more, in beautiful, colorful floral patterns and designs! Check out the entire suite HERE. This suite is sure to be a favorite from the new catalog!

3D Thursday: Bath and Body Works Hand Sanitizer Holder

For this week’s 3D Thursday project, Sarah Wills has created this fabulous hand sanitizer holder for Bath & Body Works PocketBac hand sanitizers! She used items from the NEW Ornate Garden Suite to create this project, which is now available for preorder in the online store!

Take a look at what she has created:

These would make a perfect gift for school food service workers, healthcare workers, grocery and retail workers, mail carriers, or anyone else who is an essential worker during this time. It’s just a little way to say thank you, while also giving them a little something to help keep them healthy. Sarah mentioned that she made a bunch of these and will give them out to workers at her local grocery store. How awesome is that?

This project could easily be adapted to match the colors on any bottle of hand sanitizer by switching up the paper and colors used. You can find complete instructions HERE or by clicking the image of Sarah’s project sheet below:

I hope you have enjoyed this week’s project! Next week, I will be back with another fun 3D Thursday project, as well as a new Color Fusers project on Monday!

Stay safe and healthy!

A Lovely Floral Card Made with the Share What You Love Suite

My card today was made for a wedding that I will be attending next week!  I used two items from the NEW Share What You Love Suite, along with some current favorites.  To make this card, I embossed the top layer with a new embossing folder called the Lovely Floral Dynamic 3D Textured Embossing Folder.  It has a large, beautiful floral design that gets pressed into your paper when run through the Big Shot!  The design is pretty enough to stand on it’s own, but for this card, I wanted to do something a little different.  Here’s a peek at the folder so you can see what the whole design looks like:

It’s hard to see the whole thing, but there is a large central flower in the design of this folder.  For my card, I chose to cover up the flower with the sentiment, and instead have the sentiment be the center focus of the card.  The sentiment is heat embossed in silver and is from the Love What You Do stamp set.  It was cut out with the Layering Circles Framelits, and framed with a scalloped circle from the same set in a brand new color called Soft Sea Foam.  (I also used this color for the middle layer of the card.)

In order to dress up this card a little more, I added some vellum leaves made with the Leaf Punch, as well as some die cuts cut from Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  For those, I used the Bouquet Bunch Framelits.  I also added a piece of sheer 1/8 inch white ribbon behind the sentiment for a little extra detail, and of course, added a few pearls in there too…it’s for a wedding, so why not?  🙂

Right now, you can get the Love What You Do stamp set and the Lovely Floral Embossing Folder as part of the Gotta Have It All early release bundle in the online store!  In addition to the two gorgeous items mentioned above, you also get a bunch of other items from the new Share What You Love Suite, as well as THREE FREE GIFTS with your purchase!  To see the full bundle and what is included, please click HERE. 

 

Measurements for this card are as follows:

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

Soft Sea Foam middle layer:  3-7/8 x 5-3/16 inches

Shimmery White cardstock top layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches

Shimmery White/Soft Sea Foam sentiment pieces:  2-1/2 x 2-1/2 inches

Vellum leaves and Dazzling Diamonds pieces:  2 x 2-1/2 inches each

 

Did I mention that this whole card is made from Shimmery White Cardstock?  That, combined with the Dazzling Diamonds paper, silver sentiment, pearls, and more all make this a perfect wedding card!  I hope that the couple I made it for will like it.  (And I hope you do too!)

If you have any questions about this card, please feel free to ask.  Thank you for visiting today!

My Final OnStage Display Board Project!

My final display board project is actually very similar to the very first project I shared using items from the new Annual Catalog!  If you remember, I made a mini pizza box using the Love What You Do stamp set.  I even used most of the same colors as on this card!  Here’s a pic of the project I am referring to if you’d like to take a look:

Both projects use many of the same products, including the Love What You Do stamp set, the Wood Textures Designer Series Paper, the Bermuda Bay, Pool Party, and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends, and the Tea Room ribbon!  However, on today’s project, the sentiment is not heat embossed, but rather stamped in Soft Suede ink, and framed by an outline stamp and framelit from the Rose Wonder stamp set and Rose Garden Thinlits Dies (which are retiring May 31st.)  The ribbon is also tied in a bow for the card!

I really love the color palette for this card!  The colors that were used are as follows:

And of course, Very Vanilla is used as the base neutral in this project as well (even though it’s not shown above!)

 

The measurements for this card are as follows:
Crumb Cake card base:  5-1/2 x 8-1/2 (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Very Vanilla middle layer:  3-3/4 x 5 inches
Wood Textures DSP top layer:  3-5/8 x 4-7/8 inches
Very Vanilla Stitched Shapes Circle:  3-1/2 x 3-1/2 inches
Very Vanilla sentiment piece:  2 x 3 inches

 

 

This card was embellished with the NEW Tea Room Ribbon Combo Pack, as well as a few Pearl Basic Jewels that have been colored with an Ivory Stampin’ Blends Marker.  The ribbon will be available June 1st and comes in pack of two colors: Very Vanilla and Coastal Cabana.  The ribbon is 1/8 inch wide, and has beautiful Copper edging, which you can see nicely in the picture directly above!

 

So that’s it for my OnStage Display Board samples.  I hope you have enjoyed what I have created!  Don’t forget, the Love What You Do stamp set is available NOW to order as part of the Share What You Love Early Release, now through May 31st!  Click HERE to go to the early release section of the online store!

 

If you have any questions regarding this, or any other project I’ve shared, please feel free to ask!  🙂

Share What You Love Suite Early Release Begins May 1st

Over the past couple of weeks I have shared a number of projects I created using a brand new stamp set called the Love What You Do stamp set.  It is definitely my favorite of the three sets that I received for my OnStage display board!  I only received the stamp set, but it is actually part of an entire suite of products that is going to be released on May 1st to customers, a WHOLE MONTH before the Annual Catalog goes live on June 1st!  For the early release, the stamp set will be available as part of three exclusive bundles which will ONLY be available during the month of May.  Once the catalog ordering period begins on June 1st, everything in the bundles will still be available, but will only be available separately.  Each bundle also includes at least one FREE GIFT when purchased during the early release, which makes this offer even sweeter!  So let’s take a peek at each of the bundles and what is included in each:

The Just Getting Started Bundle

This bundle is the most basic of the three, and is perfect for beginning stampers!  It includes a free gift of Very Vanilla Note Cards and Envelopes (a $6.50 value)!  This bundle costs $57.00 (before tax and shipping), and the item number is 149524.

 

The A Little More, Please Bundle

This bundle is a bit of a step up from the first and includes TWO stamp sets, as well as TWO free gifts: a package of Very Vanilla Medium Envelopes AND the Share What You Love Embellishment Kit (an $18.00 combined value)!  This bundle costs $91.50 (before tax and shipping), and the item number is 149525.

 

The Gotta Have it All Bundle

This is the most inclusive bundle available and includes THREE free gifts!  The free gifts include the two gifts from the previous bundle, as well as an exclusive stamp called the Statement of My Heart Stamp (a $30.00 combined value).  This bundle costs $127.50 (before tax and shipping), and the item number is 149526.

 

2018-2020 In Color Ink Pads Bundle

In addition to the three Share What You Love bundles, the early release also includes a bundle of the NEW 2018-2020 In Color Ink Pads!  Get all FIVE colors in the NEW ink pad style for only $33.75, which is a savings of 10% off the cost of them separately!  This is a great way to get the new colors early AND save a bit of money at the same time!  The item number for the In Color ink pad bundle is 147153.

So there you have it!  Which one(s) will you choose?  All of these bundles are available for purchase starting May 1st!  They may be ordered in the online store, or directly through me via email at nicollebelesimo@gmail.com!  If you are a new customer, purchasing any of these bundles through me will also guarantee you a copy of the NEW Annual Catalog, which will be delivered sometime in mid-May!  I would love to add you to my list!  If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!  🙂

Enjoy your day!
