Paper Crafting Packaging Blog Hop

bloghopbannerapril2018-001

I hope you are enjoying our Independent Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators Blog Hop featuring gift packaging. Fellow demonstrators from all over the globe are participating so we have a wide array of fun projects to share with you! You may have arrived from the United Kingdom and Sandra Robert’s blog. She had a fabulous project!

The leftover custom designer series paper I created for this blog post was still on my table when I started to gather supplies for my project. So I grabbed by scoring tool and an acetate box to quickly create a custom belly band. The whisper white cardstock measures 4.5×11 inches with scoring at 4 1/2, 5 1/8, 9 5/8 and 10 1/4 inches as marked on the photo below. Use a strip of tear and tape to secure the band after wrapping around the acetate box.

The paper and ribbon belly band are not secured to the acetate box so the box can be reused for a different occasion. Use our epoxy dew drops and clear faceted gems generously since this box is intended to be hand delivered. The white flax ribbon is a new spring catalog product.

ICS Blog Hop Christmas Cards Galore

Thank you for hopping around with us as we showcase Christmas Cards Galore. You may have arrived from Janey Backer’s blog and her fabulous project. My project is below.

I decided to create custom designer series paper using the Spirited Snowmen stamp set. I first stamped the skating snow peep in pacific point in the center of an 8.5×11 whisper white cardstock. Additional images were stamped in “triangles” around the center image.

Next, “winter cheer” was stamped in blackberry bliss filling in the open spaces.

Last, the snowflakes were stamped in pacific point ink to fill in…

a fun little trio of images and colors…

The sheet was cut to 4×5 inches. Then the blackberry bliss ink pad was applied directly to the edges to give an illusion of another layer. I wanted the Swirls and Curls embossing on the balmy blue card base to show through a little so did not want to add another paper layer. Decorated the envelope back too!

Color the carrot nose with the pumpkin pie Stampin’ Write marker and add a frosted epoxy dew drop embellishment for the hat tassle….

My design was inspired from a custom sheet that my sister Tricia created. The stamp set took 3 trips up the interstate before she completed the sheet. She plans to use the sheet to create a scrapbook page.
