This week, we have Guest Designer Tami Hewlett joining us for 3D Thursday! She has created this beautiful decorated Mini Paper Pumpkin Box, using NEW products from the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog!
Besides the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes, Tami’s project features the new Blossoms in Bloom Bundle, Forever Gold Laser Cut Specialty Paper, Flowers for Every Season 6 x 6 Designer Series Paper, and two new In Colors: Bumblebee and Magenta Madness!
The Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes are the perfect size for notecard sized cards (3-1/2 x 5 inches). They are also food safe, so they are also perfect for packaging tasty treats! AND, they also perfectly hold a Classic Stampin’ Pad and reinker. Such a great gift for a fellow stamper!

It’s my turn to create for 3D Thursday, and I have created a way to dress up seed packets for weddings, showers, and more! I was looking for something on Etsy last week, and a bunch of customized seed packet envelopes came up, which I thought was a great idea. So of course, I had to try to create one of my own. What do you think?
I’m really happy with how it came out. I used a bunch of NEW products from the new Annual Catalog, which just went live YESTERDAY! The envelope is made from the new In Good Taste Designer Series Paper; the belly band is made from Ornate Garden Specialty Designer Series Paper; the sunflower was made using the Celebrate Sunflowers Bundle; and it also features one of our new In Colors for 2020-2022: Bumblebee!
The envelope was designed to be opened and closed without having to be sealed. I did not seal the flap on the envelope intentionally, so that it could be opened and closed without tearing. The belly band holds it closed when it’s on, which can easily be slipped on and off as needed. I included a packet of sunflower seeds to go with the sunflower theme of the project, but we have so many pretty flower stamps and dies in the new catalog, I can imagine making these with other types of flowers and seeds as well!
The measurements of my final project are as follows:
Finished envelope: 3-1/2 x 5-3/8 inches
Belly band: 3-9/16 across x 3-1/2 inches tall (just the front dimensions)
Sunflower: Approximately 3-1/4 inches in diameter
Sentiment piece: 3/4 x 3 inches

I hope you have enjoyed my project! Thank you so much for stopping by!
Happy June, Everyone! What a great way to start off the month, with a Color Fusers blog hop, a gorgeous color combo, and products from the NEW Annual Catalog, which goes live in only TWO days! Our color combo today is a very pretty combination of Petal Pink, Melon Mambo, and Pool Party!
My project today features (mostly) products from the new catalog. The background images were created with stamps from the new Forever Fern set. The sentiment is from the new Lovely You stamp set, and is heat embossed in white on Basic Black card stock. I also used new ribbon and embellishments, which I will get to in just a bit! For now, here’s a sneak peek at the two stamp sets I used:
When making this card, I really wanted to use Melon Mambo ribbon, but I do not currently have any in my stash. So I used some of the new White Faux Linen Ribbon from the Flowers for Every Season Ribbon Combo Pack and dyed it with my Melon Mambo ink refill. It was really easy to do! I used a small clear plastic cup, added about 1/2 inch of water, 10 drops of ink, and a splash of isopropyl alcohol. After stirring it well, I submerged the ribbon and let it sit for 10 minutes or so, then removed it and laid it flat on a paper towel. I used the paper towel to blot as much of the water out as possible, then dried it the rest of the way with my hair dryer. The ribbon held the color really well. Next time, I think I will leave it in longer to see if I can get a deeper color, but even the lighter pink coordinates well, as it’s just a lighter shade of Melon Mambo!
In addition to the leaves, I also stamped some small splatters all over the background in Petal Pink ink. The splatter stamp is also from the Forever Fern set. And the droplet embellishments are from the NEW Flowers for Every Season Gems. They are not adhesive backed, so I just used a very small dab of glue and placed them with my Take Your Pick Tool.
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Thick Whisper White card stock card base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Pool Party card stock middle layer: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
Whisper White card stock top layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches
Basic Black card stock sentiment piece: 1-1/8 x 2-1/4 inches
Although this card is made with mostly new products, there is still time to get your favorite retiring products! But you only have until tomorrow night to get them! Click HERE to shop the Last Chance Products section of my online store, and stock up on your favorites before they are gone for good!
Thank you so much for stopping by today! Next up is Tami Hewlett, who always has something beautiful to share!
Debbie Henderson is our designer today for 3D Thursday, and she has created this sweet treat box, which features NEW colors for 2020! The new catalog has been released to demonstrators, and we’ve seen the new colors for 2020-2022. They are SO pretty! Debbie has featured two of them in her project today. They are called Bumblebee and Magenta Madness!
Debbie also used some other products from the new catalog, including Designer Series Paper, cutting dies, and embellishments. Her project is a great sample of new colors and products that will ALL be available June 3rd!
Here’s a nice close up of the new In Color ribbon and colors:

Happy May, Everyone! April flew by, despite many challenges, and I have tremendous hope that we will finally start seeing some good news this month! Our color combo this month is a bright, sunny combo of Call Me Clover, Night of Navy, and Pineapple Punch. TWO of these colors are retiring June 2nd, so if you love them, stock up while you can!
I realized last night about 9:30 pm that I had this hop today. For some reason, I thought it was NEXT week. Oops! This card layout is pretty much my go-to layout when I need a card quickly. It’s simple in design and easy to create, and by adding texture, embellishments, etc., you can dress it up to look really nice! Some added touches on this card include paint spatters in the background, the use of Shimmery White cardstock for the top layer, stitched edging, pearls, an embossed middle layer, and a simple bow!
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Night of Navy cardstock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half)
Call Me Clover cardstock layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches
Shimmery White cardstock layer: 3 x 4-3/8 inches
Shimmery White cardstock insert: 4 x 5-1/4 inches
My flowers were stamped in Black StazOn ink, and watercolored using Aqua Painters. After coloring the flowers, I swirled some green into the yellow before I did the paint spatters, and though it’s hard to tell from the pictures, some of them have an almost ombre effect! The flowers are from the Painted Poppies stamp set and the sentiment is from the Here’s a Card set.
As mentioned above, TWO of the colors we used today are retiring June 2nd. They are Pineapple Punch and Call Me Clover. Be sure to visit the online store HERE to stock up on your favorites before they’re gone for good! Typically, retiring color products sell out quickly, so order ASAP to avoid disappointment!
Be sure to check out the Last Chance Products section of the online store for ALL retiring products, in addition to the retiring In Colors! Some items have been marked down, and ALL retiring products are only available while supplies last.
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you are happy and well. Please continue to the next stop on our hop, which is Melanie Hockin’s page!
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!
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!
Happy Thursday! This week it’s my turn to create for 3D Thursday! 🙂
I follow a lot of different craft sites and one thing I’ve noticed is that bees are definitely a huge trend right now. There are LOTS of posts about beehives and bee related crafts, especially now that Spring is right around the corner! I like to put my own twist on popular projects using Stampin’ Up products, so I made a mason jar beehive with three flower pens:
The base of this project is a pint sized mason jar. I covered the jar with a thin layer of Multipurpose Glue and then used the 5/16″ Braided Burlap Trim to wrap the jar. I let the jar sit overnight and dry completely before completing it the next day. Once the whole project was finished, I filled the jar with glass vase gems (not shown) to add some weight and give the finished pens something to rest on while in the jar!
You can make your own set using my FREE project sheet, available below! The sheet contains step by step, full color instructions, along with a complete supply list of everything you need. You can download the sheet HERE, or by clicking the image below:
This project is sweet and useful, and was A LOT of fun to create. I hope you’ll consider making one of your own!
Thank you for visiting today! Please contact me if you have any questions regarding my project. I would be happy to help!
Welcome to our Color Fusers March 2020 blog hop! Today, we have a really pretty color combo to share! I just love the combination of green and brown together. I love it so much, that it was actually my color scheme for my wedding in 2008. I wore a light ivory gown, and my bridesmaids wore dark brown. All of my accents were different shades of green, including my main flowers, which were green Cymbidium Orchids. I made all of my own wedding stationery, and though I was not a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator at the time, I used Stampin’ Up! products in everything I made. My Stampin’ Up! colors were Certainly Celery (now retired), Early Espresso, and Very Vanilla. (Not EXACTLY the colors used today’s project, but on the same idea)!
For today’s project, I used the Parisian Beauty and Forever Blossoms stamp sets, as well as the Parisian Dies:
To make this card, I used Soft Suede card stock for the base, then Pear Pizzazz for the middle layer, and Very Vanilla for the top. I wanted a very soft look for this card, so any stamped images were stamped off at least twice in order to leave it very light in color.
I stamped the blossoms on the background in Mint Macaron ink. I stamped each off twice before stamping onto my final layer. I then used the script stamp from Parisian Beauty to stamp some script in multiple spots using Soft Suede. Those were stamped off three times each before stamping the final images. I then used a sponge dauber to sponge some Pear Pizzazz ink very lightly in the center of each large flower, as well as some Crumb Cake lightly along the edges.
The Eiffel Tower was cut from Crumb Cake card stock using the large die from the Parisian Dies set, and the “merci” was cut in Pear Pizzazz using a die from the same set. (I had originally planned to use Soft Suede for the tower, but I felt it was too dark, so I went with the lighter color!) Once the two top layers were adhered together with Snail adhesive, I attached them to the base using Stampin’ Dimensionals. To finish this card, I added three small pearls to the front, as well as a simple sentiment from the By the Dock stamp set to the inside:
Measurements for this card are as follows:
Soft Suede card stock base: 5-1/2 x 8-1/2 inches (scored at 4-1/4 inches and folded in half).
Pear Pizzazz card stock middle layer: 3-7/8 x 5-1/8 inches
Very Vanilla card stock top layer: 3-3/4 x 5 inches
Crumb Cake Eiffel Tower piece: 2-3/4 x 5 inches
Pear Pizzazz “merci” piece: 1/2 x 2-1/2 inches
Right now, you can get both the Parisian Beauty stamp set and Parisian Dies as a bundle for 10% off the price of both purchased separately! Take a peek at the full bundle below:
The full Forever Blossoms stamp set can also be seen below:
I love how all of these products work so well together!
