Stampin’ Up! Blessings of Heart & Home Note Cards and Gift Box

Good morning and HAPPY HAPPY HAWWWMP DAY!!  I hope your week is going well!

Before we get going, I’d like to remind you about my Fundraiser for the folks so dreadfully impacted by this week’s tornadoes in AR, KY and IL.  Scroll down to see how YOU can help – and see how to maybe win a brand spanking new Stampin’ Cut and Emboss Machine!

So for today, I’ve got a sweet little gift set for you – with a gift box and three little notecards & envelopes.  I used the Heart & Home Memories & More Card Pack and the coordinating Heart & Home Memories & More Cards & Envelopes for the note cards.  And I made a gift box for them by decorating a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box with a Blessings of Home Bundle image, sentiment and some foliage atop Heart & Home DSP.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Gingerbread & Peppermints Square Gift Boxes with Video Tutorial

Well – November is winding down FAST, huh?  It’s already the LAST Sunday of the month.  Wow.

Just.  WOW!  😳😳😳 Hope the long weekend went well.  Tell me….do you have your Christmas tree up yet??  I do not.

Yet! 😉

If you were able to join me for my Facebook live video last evening, I appreciate you spending part of your holiday weekend with me!  If not, but you’d like to watch the replay…here ’tis!

I had a friend – and Critters-N-Creatin’ Krew team member! – ask me to help her figure out how to modify a little gift box that she’d seen over at Nigezza Creates.  She wanted something a little bigger that would fit some chocolate.  You KNOW I am all about MORE chocolate, so…I stuck my engineer hat on and…came up with a 1 1/2″ Square Treat box with the fun and Christmas-y Gingerbread & Peppermints 6″ x 6″ DSP – plus…a few little tags and sentiments here and there.  Take a look-see:

While I was making it, I thought…wonder if I couldn’t just give y’all (and myself!) a handy formula so that you could create whatever size box you needed (within the constraints of your cardstock size, of course!).  And…so I did.  And made a 2 3/4″ Square Gift Box, too!

 

The basics are the same for any size – and the Box Size you WANT is the starting point for all the calculations!

For the 1 1/2″ square, I started with a 5″ x 6 1/4″ piece of Real Red cardstock.  Using my Simply Scored Scoring Tool, I scored along the long side at 1 1/2″, 3″, 4 1/2″ and 6″.  Then I rotated the cardstock to put the short side up and scored at 1/4″, 1 3/4″, 3 1/4″ and 4 3/4″.

I used scissors to cut flaps and tabs…

..as you can see here (and at about the 7:45 point in the video!).

I used my Paper Snips to trim rounded corners on the large tabs.

In the video, I matted the small DSP squares on Basic White and then adhered them to the square panels of the box base.

I selected my “top” and used the very top of the head on the Snowman Builder Punch to cut a “thumb” hole.

Then I added Liquid Glue the small tab on the right side of the base in the picture above.  I closed the box together – check the video at about the 19 minute mark to see how!

I used a sentiment from the Peaceful Cabin stamp set and stamped it in Old Olive on Basic White.  Then I cut it with a small tag die from the Ornate Frames die set.  I also cut a Real Red tag.  Using Liquid Glue, I adhered the two little tags together – slightly offset but with the tiny holes lined up.

I ran a piece of white Baker’s Twine from the Baker’s Twine Essential Pack thru the hole and tied a little bow.  I adhered the tag with a Glue Dot.

Using the small circle die in the Gingerbread Die set, I cut a small Basic White circle.  Then I cut the coordinating “peppermint swirl” die cut in Real Red.  I adhered the swirl to the circle with Liquid Glue, then popped it on the end of the tag with a Stampin’ Dimensional – and the box was done!

The large box has some Real Red 3/8″ Mini Ruffled Ribbon and a tag made with the Giving Gifts and Tailored Made Tags die sets.

I adhered the  Basic White Tailored Made Tag to the back of the Real Red detailed cut with Liquid Glue – adhering “bad” side to “bad” side.  That left the nicer “front” side visible on the back – where I stamped an Old Olive sentiment from the Festive & Bright set.

Et Voila!  I love this little Square Gift Box – whether it’s 1″, 1 1/2″ or a “huge” (😉) 2 3/4″!  Note:  2 3/4″ is about as big as you can get with 12″ x 12″ cardstock!

While I’ve used the Gingerbread & Peppermints DSP here – you can use whatever DSP suits your occasion!  Look thru your stamps and dies (although you NEED the Ornate Frames, Tailor Made Tags and Giving Gifts Die Sets – just saying!) and use the sentiments that you’ve got! 🙂

Finn Fan Fix 

Wayne was sitting on the end of the couch yesterday afternoon watching the UGA/GT game (or…was it a game or a schooling? 😉  GO UGA!) and made the mistake of getting up to go to the bathroom.

As soon as he cleared the hallway – the Man took advantage of the newly opened “spot” on the sofa.

Wayne returned to find…

…that necessitated some pooch-pouncing!

Finny loves a good pooch-pouncing!

…but they never last NEAR long enough!

Come back, Dad – I’m in your spot and I need pounced!

Stampin’ Up! Sweet Strawberry Love You Always Treat Box Sneak Peek with Video Tutorial

Good morning and happy Friday!  It’s been a busy week here – catalogs getting mailed – Catalog Pre-Order – lots going on and I’ve felt like I’ve met myself coming and going!  But…today???

Today is a GOOD DAY!  Ms. Sonya comes back today!

Did you hear the choir of Angels singing?!?  I sure did!  I am so ready!

Finny is, too!! He’s missed his friend with the Bacon Bites! 😉

So – if you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis!  In addition to the project – I gave everyone a sneak peek at my second Pre-Order from the new catalog and….the new Mini Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine! 🙂

I made a fun little treat box using products that you’ll be able to get on 5 January in the new Jan – Jun 2021 Mini catalog and 2021 Sale-A-Bration Flyer!  The box itself is a Love You Always Treat Box – and it’s very cool!  I decorated it with Berry Blessing DSP – which will be bundled with the Berry Blessings stamp set and, as part of the 2021 Sale-A-Bration, will be available for FREE with a $100 purchase!  I also used the Sweet Strawberry stamp set and bundled Strawberry Builder Punch. – these are in the Mini Catalog.  Take a look-see:

I played along with the Watercooler Wednesday Challenge!

The Love You Always Treat Box goes together pretty easy – once you see it!  Do take a peek at the video and you’ll see how easy it is!

Before I assembled the box – I stamped the long side with the leaf outline image from Berry Blessings (this is the stamp set that’s bundled with the Berry Delightful DSP in the Sale-A-Bration flyer!) in Granny Apple Green.  Tip – the boxes have a “food safe” side – it’s kind of shiny.  The OTHER side – kind of matte – is the one you want on the OUTside of the box if you plan to stamp it.  Ink doesn’t dry at all well on the shiny food-safe side.  Ask me how I know?

Actually – don’t ask.  Watch the video and you’ll see! 😉

I also covered the two short ends of the box and the two long edges of the “sleeve” with some Poppy Parade-matted Berry Delightful DSP  before I assembled the box.

For the top of the box, I cut a second design of the Berry Delightful DSP  and then laid a strip of the plaid pattern at an angle across it – adhering it with Liquid Glue. I trimmed the excess with my Paper Trimmer and matted the panel on Poppy Parade.  Hint: it’s a lot easier to decorate the top of the sleeve/box if you slide the box back into the sleeve – that makes it a little sturdier!

I wrapped a length of Daffodil Delight 3/8″ Ruched Ribbon around the diagonal DSP – securing it in back with Glue Dots.  Then I popped the panel onto the top of the box/sleeve with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

To make the strawberries, I stamped the outline image from Sweet Strawberry in Poppy Parade four times on a piece of Poppy Parade cardstock and cut them with the Strawberry Builder Punch.  I folded two in half and adhered the “fold” to each of the remaining flat strawberries with Liquid Glue.

I stamped the strawberry hat leaf image from Sweet Strawberry three times in Granny Apple Green ink on Granny Apple Green cardstock and cut them with the Strawberry Builder Punch. I used Liquid Glue to adhere two of them to the tops of my strawberries.

 

I made some leaves by stamping the image from Sweet Strawberry three times in Granny Apple Green onto Granny Apple Green cardstock and punched them out.

I used Liquid Glue to adhere the leaves and the two strawberries to the top of the box.

On a piece of Daffodil Delight, I stamped the strawberry again in stamped-off-once Poppy Parade.  Then I added the Sweet Strawberry sentiment in Granny Apple Green.  I punched it with the punch and added a little strawberry hat leaf with Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered it with a couple of stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals.

Et Voila!  This Love You Always Treat Box is really cool, y’all – it’s about 2″ tall and 4″ long – so it’s got a little room for some goodies!  If you do as I suggest and put the non-food-safe side on the inside – then you’ll want to wrap your food gifts if you use it for that! 🙂

I think the Sweet Strawberry bundle – from the Jan – Jun 2021 Mini Catalog is going to be a lot of fun – and it’s REALLY fun that it totally coordinates with the Berry Blessings Bundle from the 2021 Sale-a-Bration catalog!

I hope you like – and are starting to make your list!

I mailed catalogs on Wednesday so…if you’re expecting one from me, be watching your mailboxes this weekend or Monday!  If you’re not sure if one is on the way to you – give me a holler!

I’ve got an Online Host Club starting on 1 January (just in time for the new catalog and Sale-A-Bration!) and I’ve got openings.  Whoo-hoo!!!

What is an Online Host Club?  Glad you asked!

An Online Host Club lets you get some of the benefits of being a host – without doing any of the WORK of being a host!  And – it helps you build your crafting tool chest a little at a time.  While earning FREE goodies!

A club consists of three folks doing two consecutive three-month terms.   Each person commits to buying $50 before shipping and tax each month.

Here’s how it shakes out…this is just an example!  As you can see, each member gets to host TWICE during the six months!!

At the end of the club, I let each member select a stamp set up to $25 that I send to them for free.

What are the other bennies of a Host Club?

  • At least a $150.00 Workshop order during EACH of your host months!
  • Which means you’ll have at least $15.00 of Stampin’ Rewards dollars to spend on the exclusive Host Stamp Sets, or any other current Stampin’ Up! product during your host months.  Stampin’ Rewards are Stampin’ Up!-speak for “free money”!
  • You’ll earn DOUBLE PEPPERMINTS on your Host Club Orders.  Each $50 order earns 4 reward points, a $75 order earns you 6 reward points, etc. You’ll earn at least 24 reward points during your membership, meaning you’ll automatically earn at least ONE $40 Peppermint rewards gift!  (Remember – when you gather up 16 Peppermints, you get to select a free reward gift valued up to $40!).  You can get more info about my Punkin’ Heads Customer Rewards Program right here.
  • During Sale-a-Bration – each of your host club orders will earn you AT LEAST one Level 1 ($50 level) Sale-A-Bration reward!
  • You’ll receive a FREE monthly tutorial with 4-5 projects and access to all previous tutorials for the duration of the club. Right now, there are over FIFTY tutorials available only to Online Host Club members.  That’s around TWO HUNDRED FIFTY not-seen-on-our-blogs projects for you to use as inspiration (and they ALL have all the card cuts and instructions!)
  • Access to my Weekly Zoom The Craftroom online Zoom Party – where you can come craft and chat with me and other customers! YEP – THIS IS NEW!!
  • FREE catalogs during your membership term
  • FREE shipping in your TWO Host Months
  • A FREE STAMP SET of your choice valued up to $25 at the end of each “term”, any current set (excluding host sets)!
  • At the end of the full 6 months, you’ll get first dibs at signing up for the next 6 month term!

When you join the club – you’ll commit to the full six months – in two consecutive three-month increments.   The launch of a new catalog and Sale-A-Bration is ALWAYS a great time to join a club!

Don’t delay – there are limited spaces available!

If you want to join us or if you have ANY questions about how it would work…please drop me a note at stamps-n-lingers@comcast.net!

Finn Fan Fix 

On Thursday morning, it was in the low 30’s.

AKA – too stinkin’ cold for me!

I pull on my sweatshirt.  Buckle up my Carhartt bibs.  Wrap my shemagh twice around my neck.  Tug my knitted cap (thanks Mom!) over my head and ears.  Zip up my insulated hoody and pull up the hood.  Pull on my gloves.

Say a sort-of-dirty word under my breath and head out.

Finn?

Just chillin’ in the….chill!  Love it, Mom – and no – I do NOT want to come in!!

Stampin’ Up! Poinsettia Pines Paper Pumpkin Gift Box for the Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop

Good morning, y’all!  It’s Thursday – which means it’s time for another Happy Inkin’ Thursday Blog Hop!!  We’ve got a theme challenge, today (a really TIMELY challenge!) – and I’m excited to see what everyone brings to the table!  I just know you’re going to see a ton of awesome-ness on the hop today!

So – last week I made a cool Christmas card with the Poinsettia Dies and some Poinsettia Place DSP.  I thought it would be fun to make a coordinating project that I could use as we head into gift-giving season!  So…out came the Poinsettia Petals Bundle, the Beautiful Boughs Dies and more of the pinecone-strewn Poinsettia Place DSP.  Then, to hold my gift…a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box (my favorite little gift box from Stampin’ Up! ever!!).  Take a look-see:

And here’s our oh-so-timely theme challenge! 🙂

I figured this one was – once again! – perfect for the TGIF challenge this week!

I started with a Mini Paper Pumpkin Box – these are so cool!  I love that they’re food-safe on the inside – perfect! – and they’re a super size for gifting homemade goodies!  Once you decorate them – they’d be the bomb-diggity as stocking stuffers, too!

I used the Bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock and matted four strips of Poinsettia Place DSP and the large piece for the top of the box using Liquid Glue.  Then I adhered the four strips around the edge of the box.

On the top, I used Glue Dots to adhere two lengths of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim longways and crossways – like ribbon around a present.  Then I popped the panel onto the top of the box with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I pulled out the Poinsettia Dies and got busy.  First, I cut a flower from the Poinsettia Place DSP.  I also took a minute to fussy cut some of the smaller middle petals from another flower.

I also cut some Bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock berries.

Using the Beautiful Boughs dies, I cut a large Mossy Meadow bough, a medium Old Olive bough, a large and small solid pinecone from the Bronze Brushed Metallic cardstock and the large and small detailed pinecones from Crumb Cake.

Yes, ya’ll – with no “it needs to fit in a Medium Envelope” requirements to hold me back – I shucked the reins and let my collage-freak flag fly! 😉

I adhered a couple of the metallic berries to the box top with Liquid Glue – sliding them under the twine.  Then I adhered the large Mossy Meadow die cut.

I tied a big loopy bow with two lengths of 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim and adhered it with a Glue Dot.

I adhered the pine cone pieces together and added them – along with the Old Olive die cut bough and final berry die.

On a couple of strips of Very Vanilla cardstock, I individually stamped the two words in the Poinsettia Petals stamp set in Early Espresso.  I snipped banner ends in both pieces and – sliding them into the collage – adhered them with Liquid Glue.

Using some stacked Stampin’ Dimensionals, I added the large die cut poinsettia flower.  Then I used more Dimensionals to pop the fussy cut smaller petals onto the flower.

And – y’all?  That’s it!  AKA….Et Voila!

My collage-loving soul is SOOOO happy with this!  And – check out how it looks with that card from last week!

Just enough differences to not be all matchy-matchy!  If you’d like to see how I made that one, it’s right here!

I think that the Poinsettia Petals Bundle and Poinsettia Place DSP makes it abundantly obvious that Poinsettias and Pines go together like peanut butter and jelly!  Or…the Captain and Tennille! 😉 Thankfully, we’ve ALSO got the Beautiful Boughs dies to make our theme complete!

I hope you LOVE this as much as I do!

Stampin’ Up! Heartwarming Hugs Treat Box with Video Tutorial

Happy Friday, y’all!  Hope you’ve got a good weekend in store – and that you’re not hunkered for Laura.  Or wildfires.  Sheesh.  What a year!

Today and tomorrow is our Stampin’ Up! Leaders Summit – it’s a virtual event.  WAS supposed to be in New Orleans.

Yes.  Right now.  New Orleans!  Possibly the only COVID silver-lining I’m seeing right now!  Without that – we’d have been scrambling and SU! wouldn’t have had time to lay in an amazing virtual event for us!  So…yeah COVID.

HUH???  EVER think you’d hear THAT phrase??

As an added bonus – we’re also going to find out where our Incentive Trip for 2022 will be held!  I’m so excited to find out!

On to why you came!

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – if not, but you’d like to see the replay, here ’tis! 🙂

This little treat box starts with a cool Mini Paper Pumpkin Box – and is perfectly sized for treat-gift-giving at Christmas.  It’ll hold a bar or two, some fudge or…whatever other little delights you’d like to include!  I decorated the box – and the matching gift insert – with the sweet Warm Hugs Bundle and some Heartwarming Hugs DSP.  Take a look-see:

The design for the front of the box itself is based on the sketch challenge this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches.

I started by making the note card insert, folding a 2 7/8″ x 5 3/4″ piece of Whisper White in half.  On another piece of Whisper White, I stamped one of the round sentiments from Warm Hugs in Real Red  and cut it with the matching die in the bundled Warm Wraps Dies.  While I was at it, I cut a circle from Early Espresso and some Garden Green gingham from the Heartwarming Hugs DSP – also using dies in the set!

I matted a coordinating piece of the DSP on Mossy Meadow and then adhered it to the front of my notecard.  Using Liquid Glue, I stacked and adhered the three die cuts.  Then I stamped a little tree outline in Mossy Meadow – and filled it with the stamp inked in Pear Pizzazz – then cut it with the handy die in the Warm Wraps Dies. I popped it onto the card with a Stampin’ Dimensional – then added a little star from the All The Trimmings Embellishments.

On the inside, I stamped a sentiment from Warm Hugs in Real Red – and the little tree again in Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz.

Even though it’s a gift insert – and your recipient is likely to be diving for whatever yumminess you’ve included – that’s no call to get lazy with the 3″ x 3″ Whisper White Envelope!  I stamped the Warm Hugs tree on the front and added some of the Heartwarming Hugs DSP to the tiny little flap!

And then it was time to decorate the Mini Paper Pumpkin Box!

I started with a piece of Whisper White and embossed about 3/4 of the panel in one of the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folders.  I used Liquid Glue to adhere a panel of Heartwarming Hugs DSP – and then matted the whole thing on Mossy Meadow.

I wrapped some Real Red 3/16″ Braided Linen Trim around the panel like a present and tied a knot.

I created the tag in the same way that I’d done for the front of the note card insert – using one of the other sentiments in the Warm Hugs set.  I punched a smallish hole in the top using my grocery store paper punch – then tied the tag to the panel using the Real Red trim.

I stamped a mug – in Mossy Meadow and Pear Pizzazz, the candy canes – in Real Red, and the star – in Bumble Bee.  And then cut them with their dies in the Warm Wraps Die set.  I popped them all onto the panel with Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then I added a few more All The Trimmings embellishments – and the gift was done!

Et Voila!  The food-safe lining of the Mini Paper Pumpkin Boxes – along with their size – make them perfect for right-sized food gifts at the holidays!  And the whole thing closes up and is a tidy way to present your goodies.  Decorate them with the Warm Wraps bundle and Heartwarming Hugs DSP…

 

– or…whatever strikes your fancy!

I hope you like!

My Fundraiser to Help Iowa – ends in THREE Days!!

One of the huge weather events (in a long list of them this past few weeks) – that really did NOT get a lot of attention! – is the derecho that hit Iowa a couple of weeks ago.   If you have seen any videos of it – it truly looked like a hurricane had hit Iowa.  Uhm – because it totally had – winds in the 100+mph range (that’s Cat 2 territory, folks!)  With no warning to speak of.  To say it was devastating is a bit of an understatement! 🙁

Imagine that same wind rolling across corn and soybean fields – destroying crops and infrastructure.

Why do I care?  Well, I’ve got friends thru Stampin’ Up! that live in Iowa (fortunately safe!).  One of them, who is also my team mate – gifted me with a subscription to Our Iowa Magazine last year.  She was trying to convince me of the beauty of her “fly-over state”!  Well – I read that magazine and…was convinced!  No – STILL not going to move there, cuz…SNOW!! 😉

Why should we ALL care?  As a result of the storm, at least 43% of the corn and soybeans grown in the state were lost.  Which will be seen in the supermarkets where you and I get our food!  But beyond all that – many in that state are hurting, have lost their homes, schools and businesses and some are still without power (12+ days after the storm and with daytime temps in the 90’s ). Many farm families lost everything and are left with a huge mess to clean up prior to planting next spring.  With so much destruction, they can really use our help!

There’s an organization in Cedar Rapids, IA, called the Iowa Giving Crew, a Cedar Rapids based non-profit 501(c)(3) organization that’s helping to get power restored to those still waiting, is feeding those in need, provides 3 meals a day and is helping with the cleanup.  They’ve got a Facebook page that you can see here with photos and details about the help they’re providing.

I decided to follow Amy’s lead and set a goal of donating $500 to the Iowa Giving Crew.

How can you help me help them??

I hear parents with young kids bemoaning the fact that they can’t eat alone.  Go to the bathroom alone.  Do really…anything?…alone.

I THINK Wayne understands their problem…

Poor guy.  If ONLY we knew what caused this!! 😉

So – the other day, I saw a card made by the Queen-of-Clean, Mary Fish.  And I absolutley fell in love with it – to the point where I simply had to make it for myself.  I thunked and I thunked on how to change it up – to make it more mine – but…there was no changing her perfectly perfect design.  So – I decided to use the same Love of Leaves with the amazeballs Stitched Leaves Dies and Plaid Tidings DSP – just like she did.  Take a look-see:

Stampin’ Up! Whale of a Time Fun Fold with Video Tutorial!

Good morning and Happy Friday! 🙂  Hope you’ve got a fun weekend planned!  Not really sure what’s on our agenda, to be honest.  Probably something uber-exciting.  Like…I think the Costco Business Center has Wayne’s bottled water on sale…

Yes.  I know.  You’re a little jealous of our Lives-of-the-Rich-and-Famous lifestyle. 😉

I saw a sweet “exploding” box-card that Brigitte Keiling had created with the adorable Zany Zebras stamp set and decided I needed to make one – or two! – of my own and share the how-to with y’all.  I did mine with the wonderful Whale Done bundle and gorgeous Whale of a Time DSP.  Take a look-see:

If you were able to join me yesterday for my YouTube live, I appreciate you spending some time with me – and you got to see exactly how to build these fun “box cards”.  If not – take a gander at it here on YouTube.  They’re really pretty easy – but…kinda hard see how to do it in still photos – moving pictures are worth a gazillion words! 😉

The box is super easy to make – I started with a 6″ x 12″ piece of card stock that I scored at 2″ and 4″ on the short side and at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″ and 10″ on the long side.

I folded and lightly burnished the score lines, then I used my Stampin’ Trimmer to cut at the dotted lines as shown above.

I cut 16 pieces of the Whale of a Time DSP into 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ squares and adhered them to the outside of the box with Liquid Glue.

On the second box – the one in the video – I got a little jiggy with it – and changed up the DSP for the “top” of the folded box – so the recipient see a little “sea-scene” when they lift the lid! 🙂

It made me happy!

On the inside, I used some Brights (Pacific Point) or 2020-2022 In Color (Just Jade) 6″ x 6″ DSP for the squares.

On both boxes – I cut two pieces of Whisper White at 1 7/8″ x 5 5/8″.  Then I stamped the Whale Done sentiments in Pacific Point for both boxes.

I added a variety of sea images from Whale Done – in Calypso Coral, Pretty Peacock, Granny Apple Green, Pool Party, Balmy Blue, Shaded Spruce and Blackberry Bliss.

I cut the Whisper White panels down to 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ and adhered them in order with Liquid Glue.

For the “extra” sentiments, I turned to my Many Mates set and stamped a few sentiments on Whisper White in Pretty Peacock, Calypso Coral and Granny Apple Green.  I fussy cut the words and edged them in Pacific Point or Granny Apple Green – then adhered them to the panels with Liquid Glue.

Some Whale of a Time sequins, adhered here and there with dabs of Liquid Glue was all that remained for the card.

For the lid – I cut a 3 5/8″ x 5 5/8″ piece of card stock – in Pacific Point for the sample box and Granny Apple Green for the video box.  I scored and folded them at 3/4″ from each end on the short and long sides.

Then I snipped “tabs” in the end and adhered the lid together with Stampin’ Seal +.

I adhered strips of Whale of a Time DSP around the edge of the lid.  For the top, I stamped a second sentiment from Whale Done in Pretty Peacock on a “scene” piece of Whale of a Time.  Then I adhered the panel to a Granny Apple Green or Pretty Peacock mat and popped it onto the top of the box lid with Stampin’ Dimensionals.

I stamped the whale in Night of Navy or Pretty Peacock, punched him with the bundled Whale Punch and popped him on with Dimensionals.

A few more Whale of a Time sequins on the lid finished it off!

Et Voila!  This is a “wow” fun-fold for sure!  And the bx is for sure sturdy enough that you could stick a little “green” inside or some candy.  Or…both!

I love the Whale of a Time Suite – way more than I figured I would.  The images and sentiments are cute (and SO fun to just keep stamping and stamping to make my own underwater scenery!) and the paper in Whale of a Time is wonderfully colorful and gorgeous!

I hope you like – and will try one of these fun box-cards for yourself!

And – maybe the Whale Done Bundle will be the one YOU choose when you sign up and join my Team during our amazing Pick a Free Bundle Starter Kit Promotion! 😉
