How can it already be March 26th...I feel like this month has gone by so quickly! And it's even more shocking to me how much our lives have changed since last March! I am excited that things seem to be moving along nicely lately. And with that said I am also excited to share with a fun Monochromatic Project for the March Stampin Friends Blog Hop.
I hop you joined me from Heidi Collin's Blog and after viewing mine, be sure to continue on to Melissa Thomas's Blog. And if you get lost along the way, there is a list of hoppers at the end of the blog. And please welcome Kirsty Pattrick to the hop this month!!! We are excited to have her join us. I hop you check out her projects!!
I chose my favorite colors to make my projects. I used Old Olive with a mix of the Forever Greenery Designer Series Paper.
Lets start with the Mini Gift bag. It so easy to make. You will need a piece of card stock or DSP that measures 6x9. If you choose a patterned paper that has a directional pattern, be sure to make sure the paper is in the right position before you begin scoring. You can refer to my video below to see what I mean.
Using your SImply Scored Score Bored, with the 9" side at the top, score at 1/2, 3 1/2, 4 3/4 and 7 3/4
Turn to the 6" side and score at 1 1/4 and 4 3/4.
Fold and burnish your score lines. You will have 2 scores lines at the top and at the bottom that are 1 1/4 wide choose what will be the top of the bag and what is the bottom. The top, fold on the score line, opposite, so the fold is on the ouside of the bag and the reverse pattern is visible.
On the bottom, remove that 1/2" bit up to the 1 1/4 score line. Then cut up to that score line for the others. Adhere the top fold down. Add adhesive to the remaining 1/2 side and fold to meet the opposite edge. Fold the bottom flaps in to create the bag.
I deocrated the front by stamping the images with the Forver Fern Stamp Set, using Old Olive, and then cutting out with the coordintating dies. I stamped the greeting on a 1 1/2 circle. Finished with a Old Olive bow.
Such a perfect little bag for a gift card, some candy or treats! Whatever you need!!!!
I used dimensionals to assemble the first layer, on Basic White I stamped the greeting and image from the Forever Fern Stamp set in Old Olive. I then added each strip, with Stampin Seal, from left to right, adding the smallest strip to the largest. I added the Basic White layer using dimensionals. I added some rhinsetones that I colored using the Stampin Blends Dark Old Olive marker.
For the card with the DSP, I added the ribbon around the Basic White layer and finished it in a bow, before adhering it to the card.
I have created this video for you to refer to while making the bag and card. I have also added a bonus mini card!
I hope you enjoyed my projects. I had lots of fun designing them for you!

Welcome to my favorite hop of the year! I look forward to January, when we kick off the new year with a fresh blog hop! I am energized and organized after a much needed December hop break! Each year I look at my perpetual calendar and review all birthdays for the year and begin to go through current cards to send! I then plan to make more birthday cards if I don't have enough....and then some! So it's so fitting that we start our 2021 Stampin Friends Blog Hop with Birthday Celebrations!
So here’s to a new year, new beginnings, new possibitlities and a new 2021 Stampin Friends Blog Hop!! Be sure to hop along and visit everyone's blogs, if you miss anyone along the way, you can find a list of participants to the bottom of each blog. I hope you came from Teri Pocock’s blog, wow weren't her projects amazing?? After you view my blog, continue onto Maureen Rauchfuss’s blog, you're going to be blown away. You are guarantee to find projects that you will want to make!
I chose a fun fold card that I have never made before! This Easel Card is so easy to make! I choice Cinnamon Cider as my base with a layer of Soft Sea Foam! Can you say Mint Chip? Ok, maybe just me!! Then, I added the layer of DSP. Rich Razzleberry, Soft Sea Foam and Bermuda Bay are the perfecct scoops! I see Black Raspberry, Mint Chip and Cotton Candy!! Well around here, those would be colors of so fun flavored ice cream. What about were you are??? Stamp the images and use the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch to punch them out! Add the fun sprinkles or jimmies and chips on the scoops and then don't forget the criss-crosses to define the cone!
The Happy Birthday Greeting can be found in the Sweet Ice Cream stamp set and I stamped that in Rich Razzleberry.
Below is the measurements of the paper used! For more details on how I put this card & box together, I created a video for you to follow!
To make the card:
Cardstock: Cinnamon Cider 11x4 1/4; on the 11" side score at 2 3/4 and 5 1/2. Fold on the 5 1/2 score line and then fold back on the 2 3/4 score line.
Layer 1: Soft Sea Foam 5 1/2x4, DSP 5x3 3/4 adhere to the bottom section of the card
Layer 2: Soft Sea Foam 2 at 4x2 1/2, DSP 1 at 3 3/4x2 1/4. Adhere 1 of the Soft Sea Foam pieces to the center section (measures 4 1/4x2 3/4). Adhere the other piece of Soft Sea Foam and then DSP to the top section.
Layer 3: Cinnamon Cider 2x4, Soft Sea Foam 1 7/8x3 7/8, and Whisper White 1 3/4x3 3/4. Stamp the sprinkles in different colors on opposite corners of the Whisper White. Adhere layers togther and then add about 1/2 way down on the top section. Use dimensionals. Make sure to only add the adhesive to the part that sticks to the card base.
Layer 4: Cinnamon Cider 1 1/4x3 1/2, Soft Sea Foam 1 1/8x3 3/8 and Whisper White 1x3 1/4 Stamp the greeting in Rich Razzleberry.
Ink Colors used to stamp ice cream scoops, jimmies/sprinkles, chips and cone on Whisper White. Bermuda Bay, Cinnamon Cider, Early Espresso, Rich Razzleberry and Soft Sea Foam. Punch out using the Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch. Add to the Whisper White Sprinkle layered piece. Wrap and tie in a bow, on top section, with the Rich Razzleberry Ribbon.
Lift the card up, so the ice cream cone section stands almost up right, then add the greeting to the base of the card, so it holds up the top section.
To decorate the box;

We’re all papercrafters, here. And that means visions of sugarplums (and Christmas crafting) start dancing in our heads as soon as October hits. I can help you get those visions translated into reality by planning now to create handmade packaging for your family and friend!
Keep it simple or make it fancy. All that matters is that you add a bit of yourself to your giving this year by making it handmade and heartfelt.
The standout on this sweet Christmas packaging is our adorable, rustic tag. And trust us—once you make the first one, creating multiples is easy. Tip: Besides using the ripped paper technique, stamp off the solid trees to add depth. Once you finish stamping, tie the tag to the Mini Shipping Box with a bit of Linen Thread. So cute!
We fancied up our second tag by adding a variety of stamped embellishments. Just run the stamped images through the Stampin’ Cut & Emboss Machine with the Warm Wraps Dies, then adhere them with Stampin’ Dimensionals. We also added die-cut Real Red Cardstock trim along with open-weave ribbon and gold metallic trim from the Forever Greenery Trim Combo Pack for extra charm.
We stepped up our final project by embossing the tag with the Wrapped in Texture Embossing Folder. We then adhered pretty wreath sprigs and finished with a bit of ink splattering using the Aqua Painter. This tag is so festive you could almost hang it on the Christmas tree!
Regardless of the type of crafter you are, we have something for you!!!

Nature has many ways of showing off her genius, and one of the most notable examples is found in the delicate patterns of snowflakes. Stampin UP’s concept artist decided to highlight the whimsical beauty of these fabulous ice crystals using the So Many Snowflakes Dies (item 153560), a variety of embossing folders, and subtle, pastel color combinations to create truly breathtaking cards—which can be easily adapted to suit any winter occasion.
To make the watercolor snowflake accents featured on the Happy Hanukkah and Snowflake Wishes cards, we simply applied Blushing Bride and Misty Moonlight ink to the die-cut snowflakes using Sponge Daubers (item 133773)—replicating the soft hues of a wintry, twilight sky. Our artist enhanced the texture and beauty of these cards using the Winter Snow (item 153577) and Evergreen Forest 3D (item 153576) Embossing Folders, respectively.
To create our Thank You Snow Much gift bag, we embossed Brushed Metallic Cardstock (item 153524) using the Woodland Embossing Folder (item 152881) and added peek-through snowflake die-cut pieces for extra charm. Who wouldn’t love to receive this darling gift bag, tied with a 1-1/2" (3.8 cm) Metallic Mesh Ribbon (item 153550)? This project would also make the perfect host or booking gift!
How many ways can you showcase the beauty of snowflakes with your cards and 3D projects? Remember to share them in the comments or on Facebook Page Stampin and Scrappin with Steph, so we can all enjoy them!
FUN WITH PARTS & PIECES
Challenge: Make three lovely cards using the following supplies, but give them each a unique look. A Crushed Curry card base A 3-3/4" x 5" (9.5 x 12.7 cm) piece of white cardstock A 4" x 3/4" (10.2 x 1.9 cm) piece of Cajun Craze Cardstock A 5-1/2" x 2" (14 x 5.1 cm) piece of Plaid Tidings Designer Series Paper Life Is Beautiful Stamp Set
Stampin Up's concept artist accepted this challenge, and now look at all of the lovely cards: one for summer, one for autumn, and one all-occasion card! We particularly wanted to draw your attention to the card with three 1-5/8" x 3-3/4" (4.1 x 9.5 cm) panels. The first depicts late summer/early autumn, the second shows a tree in full autumn glory, and the third panel illustrates a tree preparing to cozy up and hibernate for the winter. By changing the number and color of the leaves in each panel, our artist was able to suggest the seasonal progression—and create a fun build-up of leaves on the bottom of the card, which gets bigger with each panel. #stampinup #stampinandscrappinwithsteph #lifeisbeautiful
