Welcome to “Stampin Stars” blog hop

Welcome to “Stampin Stars” blog hop there is lots to share with you, so take a seat and enjoy.

If you have hopped here from Angela then welcome to my blog 🙂 if you are starting with me welcome too 🙂 there are lots of wonderful projects for you to see

I am just loving the new catalogue,  and one of the stamps that was a must have for me was the “Sea Street”, these stamps are just too cute…….and I used my new favourite colour “Blackberry Bliss”…….love, love, love it….. I think you get the idea. So here is my project for my first ever Blog Hop……


The Moonlight designer series paper  stacks are gorgeous, so I didn’t waste any time in putting this card together, I also made a cute box to go with ,it which will be filled with some sweets, as my grandaughter Mia will be receiving this card. The box is really simple to make and I left one end unstuck, because I made a little sleeve to keep  it closed, making it this way the box can be kept or re-used for another small gift.

Dimensions for card:

Cut Blackberry Bliss: 4in x 12in, score at 6in on the long side

Cut Dsp: 3 4/8in x  3 4/8in, mat onto Hello Honey: 3 6/8in x 3 6/8in: adhere to card front

Cut Hello Honey strip: 4in  x  7/8 in 

Cut Blackberry Bliss strip: 4in x 5/8in

Stamp the octopus onto whisper white, cut out, using dimensionals stick to dsp.

Stamp the flag strip onto whisper white (I used 2 colours for mine) hand cut out, adhere to Blackberry Bliss strip then mat onto Hello Honey strip. Adhere to card front

Stamp a sentiment onto a whisper white (I used one from the gift of kindness) cut it out using the word bubble framelits dies, sponge the edge with Blackberry Bliss adhere to card using a dimensional.

Dimensions for box:

Cut a piece of Blackberry Bliss card stock: 5 in x 7 in 

Cut dsp: 3 6/8 in x 1 in 

Apply sticky strip or tombo to the short side of the card, roll up and adhere. Once stuck, stick one end together, if you have a crimper run the bottom edge through, this will make it look like those small frozen drink cartons. With the other end flatten the end so it sticks the opposite way to the bottom, lay on you score board and score 1/2 in down from the top, this will help make it hold together.

For the sleeve: score the dsp on the short side at 1/in, on the long side score at 2/8 in + 3 4/8 in, fold and stick, once dry slip onto box. You have now completed my project, enjoy.
