Stampin' Up Birthday Bouquet Sketched Dots Glassine Bag with Butterfllies Thinlits

Well, it's not raining today; but, it's another dreary and cloudy day!  My Clematis, Daffodils and Fruit Tree's are all budding very nicely.  I'm hoping that there isn't going to be any more frost or very high winds so that it would be a good year for our flowers and Fruit Tree's!!!

Today, I'd like to share a Glassine Treat Bag that Stampin' Up shared with us in our Succeed Weekly e-mail.  When you are a Stampin' Up Demonstrator, you receive a Stampin' Success Magazine and a Succeed Weekly e-mail that are just loaded with great Stampin' idea's, projects and much, much more!

Stampin' Up's Glassine Bag is a flat bag.  The one that I'm sharing with you today is SU's flat Sketched Dots Glassine Bag that I made into a gusseted bag.  So, if you are interested in the instructions to make the the gusseted bag, please e-mail me at dodge3670@aol.com or leave me a comment on this blog post and I'll put the instructions on my blog next week. 

O.K., let's take a look:






































Isn't that gorgeous!!!  It was designed by one of the Concept Artist at Stampin' Up.  Mine isn't exactly like the one that Stampin' Up showed; but, pretty darn close. 

The Sketched Dots Glassine Bag, Pool Party Glitter Ribbon and Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper are on Stampin' Up's retiring list so if you are interested, and there are any left, you may want to check them out now and place your order.

I started my embellishing by punching a circle using SU's 2" Circle Punch from SU Whisper White Cardstock.

I trimmed out a piece of SU's Birthday Bouquet Cardstock at 1-1/2" x 4-1/4" and punched one end with SU's Note Tag Punch and the other end with SU's Triple Banner Punch.  I adhered the tag to the punched circle using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I die cut a piece of SU's Blushing Bride Cardstock and a piece of SU's Vellum using SU's Butterflies Thinlits Dies.  I sponged the center of the vellum butterfly with Blushing Bride Ink.

I took an 8-1/2" piece of SU's Pool Party Glitter Ribbon and the two butterfly die cuts and stapled them to my tag.

Here are some side view pictures.






































I fussy cut a small bunch of flowers from SU's Birthday Bouquet Designer Series Paper and adhered them to the center of the butterfly using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I tied a bow using SU's Basic Black Baker's Twine and adhered it just above the butterfly using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.






































I took one of the Gold Paper Clips from SU's You're So Lovely Project Kit and clipped my tag to my new Glassine Bag.






































I'm pushin' the LOVE BUTTON on this one!  Gorgeous!!!

That's all I have for today!  Please come back Monday where I'll be sharing some more projects from Stampin' Up!

Hope you have a great weekend!

Stampin' Up Endless Birthday Wishes Card Class with Bag in a Box Purse Card Holder V

Today, I'll be sharing an adorable Bag in a Box Purse that holds the cards I made with Stampin' Up's Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set card class that Stampin' Up so generously provided us Demonstrators to teach some classes (with some of my own revisions).  

My Good Friend and Fellow Stampin' Up Demonstrator, Kadie, and I made this purse together over e-mails last weekend.  We had soooooo much fun!  We chat while we make our projects and then forward pictures to each other.  Sometimes, we even end up sending pictures of each others boo boo's too!  =)

There are tons of video's out there for the Bag in a Box Purse so I won't provide the instructions.  Seriously, it's easier to visit one of the many video's to make this purse.

Love this stamp set and the cards with all the bright and cheery cardstock colors and inks!  It's also a great class to use up a lot of cardstock scraps!

First, here is a picture of the Cards we made and the Envelopes we stamped.  We even took the dots stamp from SU's Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set and stamped the dots in coordinating colors on the flaps of our envelopes:

I'm not sure that these cards could get any more colorful, cheery and cute!

Now, here is the purse:






































Way too cool, huh!  I used SU's Melon Mambo Designer Series Paper and Cardstock to make my purse.  And, of course, I had to alter mine.  I cut an extra inch off the Melon Mambo DSP to make it an inch shorter. 

The cards fit perfectly inside this purse and could even hold another card or two!

I used SU's Petite Flower Punch and punched out flowers to put over the top of the end of my purse handles.  The flower brads though are a Non-Stampin' Up product.


I pulled apart a long piece of SU's Melon Mambo/Basic Black Thick Baker's Twine and only used the Melon Mambo piece to tie my bow and add my tag with my sentiment.

I die cut the two flower pieces from SU's Floral Frames Collections Dies using the two smallest dies.

I took a piece of SU's 1-1/4" Bermuda Bay Grossgrain Ribbon and pulled all of the Bermuda Bay threads from it and adhered it to the back of the smallest floral die cut with the sentiment on it using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I stamped the sentiment from SU's Circle of Spring Stamp Set in Memento Black Ink and adhered it to the SU Whisper White Floral Frame die cut with Stampin' Dimensionals.

What a fun card class and project!

That's all I have for today.  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Stampin' Up Endless Birthday Wishes Card Class IV

Gorgeous day with full on sun!!!  It's supposed to be in the 60's today so I'm hoping I can get outside for a bit. 

We got down in the low 30's last night and I was worried about the fruit tree's budding.  I hope the frost didn't hurt them!  The buds are about ready to pop open any day now!

Today, I'll be sharing the fourth card from Stampin' Up's Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set card class that Stampin' Up so generously provided us Demonstrators to teach some classes.  Love this stamp set and the cards with all the bright and cheery cardstock colors and inks!  It's also a great class to use up a lot of cardstock scraps!

Let's get started with my fourth card:






































My card base is Stampin' Up Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" scored and folded at 4-1/4".






































I trimmed out a piece of SU Melon Mambo Designer Series Paper at 4-1/2" x 1-1/2" and punched one end using SU's Triple Banner Punch.  I adhered it to my card base using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I trimmed out a piece of SU Daffodil Delight Cardsock at 3" x 1/2" and adhered it over the Melon Mambo DSP using Stampin' Dimensionals.

I stamped the word Enjoy from SU's Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set using SU Bermuda Bay Ink.


I punched out a scalloped circle from Melon Mambo Cardstock using SU's 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch.  This is just something I added to the card myself and is not including in SU's class instructions.

I went around each scallop with my Signo White Gel Pen and added a small dot.

I added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the scallop and adhered it to my card centered over the Daffodil Delight strip.

I stamped the birthday cake on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and water colored it with my Aqua Painter Brush using Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Bermuda Bay Inks. 

I punched the cake out using SU's 2" Circle Punch and adhered it to the scalloped circle with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Using SU's Heart Border Punch, I punched a heart from Melon Mambo Cardstock and added Crystal Effects to give them a shine.  I adhered one to the center of the cake. 

I tied a bow using SU's Bermuda Bay Thick Baker's Twine and adhered it to the top of the Melon Mambo DSP with a rolled up Glue Dot.

Love how these cards turned out so crisp, colorful and cute!

That's all I have for today.  Come back tomorrow and I'll share the cute purse that I made to hold these cards.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!!!

Stampin' Up Endless Birthday Wishes Card Class III

It's been cloudy and rainy all day today!  Pretty dreary looking out; but, our grass is sure looking greener!  My Day Lillie's are about 10" tall already.  They're my FAVE flower and can't wait to see all those gorgeous blooms.

Today, I'll be sharing the third card from Stampin' Up's Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set card class that Stampin' Up so generously provided us Demonstrators to teach some classes.  Love this stamp set and the cards with all the bright and cheery cardstock colors and inks!  It's also a great class to use up a lot of cardstock scraps!

Let's get started with my third card:



























My card base is Stampin' Up Whisper White Cardstock cut at 5-1/2" x 4-1/4" scored and folded at 4-1/4".

Using the dots stamp in the Endless Birthday Wishes Stamp Set, I stamped some dots on my card base near the top center using SU Pacific Point Ink.

I trimmed out a piece of SU Old Olive Designer Series Paper at 4-5/8" x 2" and punched one end using SU's Triple Banner Punch.  I adhered it to my card base on an angle using Mono Multi-Purpose Glue.

I trimmed out a piece of SU Pacific Point Cardsock at 5" x 1/2", flagged one end with my snips and adhered it to the Old Olive piece towards the bottom.

I trimmed out a piece of SU Tangerine Tango at 4-3/4" x 1/4" and adhered it centered over the top of the Pacific Point piece.

I stamped the happy and the birthday stamps just below the Old Olive piece in the right corner. 

I punched out a scalloped circle from Tangerine Tango Cardstock using SU's 2-3/8" Scalloped Circle Punch.  This is just something I added to the card myself and is not including in SU's class instructions.

I went around each scallop with my Signo White Gel Pen and added a small dot.

I added Stampin' Dimensionals to the back of the scallop and added some loops using SU's Silver Metallic Thread.  I then adhered it to my card.
 

































I stamped the birthday cake on a piece of Whisper White Cardstock and water colored it with my Aqua Painter Brush using Tangerine Tango, Daffodil Delight and Pacific Point Inks. 


I punched the cake out using SU's 2" Circle Punch and adhered it to the scalloped circle with Stampin' Dimensionals. 

Using SU's Star Border Punch, I punched a star from Old Olive and from Pacific Point Cardstocks and added Crystal Effects to give them a shine.  I adhered one to the cake and one in the stamped dots.

I added 3 SU Basic Jewel Rhinestones randomly to the card. 

This is such a fun set of birthday cards and I just LOVE all the bright and cheery color!!!

That's all I have for today!

Please come back tomorrow to see the fourth card in the Endless Birthday Wishes card class.
