Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. This hop features a sneak peek at the new 2018-2019 annual catalog. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Kirsten’s blog and her fabulous project. My hop design is below.

I decided to pair 3 new products to decorate the returning silver gable boxes. These boxes arrived already cut and scored for easy popping up and decorating. I decorated both sides of the box as shown below.

The new products are the Springtime Impressions Thinlets, Garden Impressions designer series paper and polka dot tulle ribbon. The ribbon was wrapped around the box to make a belly band. The ribbon dots are slightly raised and soft feeling. My favorite new product so far!

I wanted the butterfly to flutter so decided to trace around the thinlet with a pencil on whisper white cardstock and used paper snips to cut it out. The butterfly thinlet was cut out fully on the Garden Impression dsp and adhered to the whisper white cut out with a few glue dots down the center of the butterfly so the wings are free to flutter.

I also traced around the “for you” sentiment from the Wood Words stamp set using the flower thinlet from the Springtime Impressions Thinlet set. The “for you” was attached to the daffodil delight gift note that can be tucked inside the box for a complete gift package.

Ink and Share Blog Hop Hold on to Hope

Welcome to our Ink and Share Blog Hop featuring projects made with Stampin’ Up! products designed by fellow Stampin’ Up! Independent Demonstrators. If you are hopping around, you have arrived from Kirsten’s blog. My hop design is below.

I am featuring the Hold on to Hope stamp set and framelits to create a hand stamped greeting card. The Painted with Love specialty designer series paper has gold accents so pairs well with blocks of gold foil sheets. I’ll be making several of these so they are ready for mailing as needed.

The dsp also has painted looking stripes of rich razzleberry and powder pink. So the mat is rich razzleberry attached to powder pink cardstock. Linen thread and powder pink shimmer ribbon encase the crosses.

The inside carries over the stamping on the right border with a whisper white liner to write a personal message.
