Last Chance Stamps - Wild About You & Short Order Alphabet

I am working on my cards for an upcoming Stamp-a-stack and here is one of the samples I came up with.  This is not one of the cards we will be making so stay tuned for more samples this week. :-)

Wildaboutyousas 

It uses the retiring sets, Wild About You and Short Order Alphabet.  I stamped a few of the images on Whisper White card stock and punched them out with the 1 1/4" Square Punch.  The images were layered on squares punched out with the 1 3/8" Square Punch.

I added a strip of Chocolate Chip and set Jumbo Eyelets at both ends with my Crop-A-Dile.  I threaded the skinny Twill Tape through the eyelets and snipped the ends with my Craft & Ribbon Scissors.  These are the absolute best scissors for trimming ribbon, they leave a perfect edge.

The birds were stamped randomly along the bottom in So Saffron ink and the greeting was added as an afterthought.  I punched a hole in the front of the card with the 1 1/4" Square Punch and placed the simple greeting on the inside of the card.  I am really sad to see the Short Order Alphabet go as it is a very simple and versatile font and the size is perfect for greetings.

Fold the envelope in half, cut off one side of the flap and glue the other flap down.  I added a strip of Regal Rose card stock to the back and folded it over the envelope to cover the opening for the gift card as the white flap was kind of boring. :-)

My colors are, Regal Rose, Pretty in Pink, Old Olive

Envelope

Here is the front

Last Chance List - Big Deal Alphabet & Designer Series Papers

Thanks to my friend Ann, I now have my make and takes for my June workshops ready.  My brain is mush lately as we are in the process of buying a new home so as you can imagine, life is a bit crazy right now. :-)

Bigdealdadsffron 

This is my least favorite of the three I made.  It uses the Bella Birds DSP for the tie.  The card stock colors are Barely Banana, So Saffron and Close to Cocoa.

Bigdealretrodad 

This one is for the Dad born in the 70's!!  Just kidding but it does have a retro feel to me. :-)  It uses the Good Morning Sunshine DSP with Pacific Point, Kiwi Kiss and So Saffron card stock.

Bigdealdadconservative 

This one is my favorite as it really reminds me of my own father.  I used the Kraft striped paper from the Urban Oasis pack and the card stock colors are Kraft, Chocolate Chip and Very Vanilla.

Do you want to make your own necktie card, click the link below.  I used a 4x4 square piece of designer series paper but you can use any size square.  I did find that our DSP folds alot easier than card stock and your bone folder is your friend on this project. :-)

Box2sweetslumberwindow 

This is the Box #2 Big Shot die and I punched a window in it with the Wide Oval Punch and added a piece of our Window Sheets behind the opening.  The Cherry Blossom Embosslit was made with some Baja Breeze DSP and then I sanded it a bit to bring out the white core of the paper.  The Baja Breeze Satin Ribbon from the Valet Ribbon Originals finished it off.

Tutorial - Carousel Note Box

Remember the box and love notes in THIS POST and THIS POST?  Well, I promised you a tutorial on the box using a Carousel Note for the lid and although it is a little late, here it is!!

8 

This is my finished box from the following directions:

Take a 3 3/16" x 3 3/16" piece of card stock and lay it in the middle of your Carousel Note.  Score all around it with your Bone Folder.

1 

Then complete each score line to the edge with a ruler.

2 

Fold up all the sides and cut down the middle of each corner and down one side to remove this little piece.

3 

Then glue all four sides together using the remainder of the corner for the glue.  I used Tombow Mono Multi Adhesive.

4 

Here is your completed lid

5

To make your box bottom, decide how tall you want the sides.  In my case the sides are 2" high. 

Here is your formula for the box bottom  >  side + side + bottom. 

Translated into numbers, my box dimensions are side of 2" + side of 2" plus a 3 1/8 square bottom for a total of a 7 1/8" square scored at 2" on all sides.  The bottom dimension was determined by the size of the lid in this case.  The lid is a 3 3/16" square so the bottom needs to be a teeny bit smaller hence the 3 1/8" size for the box bottom.

Cut up two score lines on opposite sides

6 

Glue your sides together to make a box.

7 

Add some ribbon to the lid and place it on the box....WAY TOO CUTE!!  Hurry though, this paper is on the retiriing accessories list and will only be available while supplies last.

8 

Side note, the Carousel Notes are sold out but this would work for any large circle or scallop.
