3-D Paper Crafts- Lighthouse Tea Light Boxes

Lighthouse 3-D Paper Crafts

Hello Friends,

I'm so stinkin' excited that Stampin' Up! carried over the High Tide Stamp set.  It plays so well with the new Sailing Home Bundle.  The Smooth Sailing dies actually work with both stamp sets!  I wanted to make a 3-D Paper Craft as a going away gift for my class of 1st and 2nd graders at church, so made these fun Lighthouse Tea Light Boxes.  I teach this class every spring for 12 weeks and Sunday is our last class.

Lighthouse 3-D Paper Crafts

There's nothing little about the light you shine seemed like an appropriate way to send them off.  The sentiment is from the High Tide stamp set which is carrying over into the new catalog.  The Lighthouse stamp and the dies are from the new Sailing Home bundle that will be available starting June 4, 2019.

Tea Light Lighthouse Project Tips

I started with a basic little box made with a half sheet of card stock (4-1/2" x 11").  I scored at 2-1/2", 5", 7-1/2" and 10", then I turned my card stock 90 degrees and scored at 1-1/4".  And finally, I trimmed with my snips to make my tabs.

To make the opening for my light to shine through, I turned my sailboat die sideways.

My final tip is to not be afraid to snip apart stamps to make them more useable for projects.  You will still be able to slide them back together when you want to use them that way.  For today's project I snipped the words there's nothing from the rest of the verse to use as shown.


Have a fabulous day,

Good-Bye Foxy Friends

Foxy Friends Stampin' Up!

Hello Friends,

As we approach the end of the 2018-2019 Stampin' Up! Catalog period, I thought that it would be fun to say a final Good-Bye to the Foxy Friends stamp set and the Fox Builder Punch.  We've had some good times together.  All Retiring product is basically AVAILABLE WHILE SUPPLIES with a final adios on June 3.

Fox Tails Plant

Today's card was inspired by my Mother's Day Gift from my son, Bryan.  He called it a Fox Tails plant which really tickled me.  I love this quirky plant and it made me itch to pull out my Foxy Friends one last time.

Foxy Friends Stampin' Up!

Card Making Tips

I stamped my main images with the new Terracotta Tile Ink.  It's really a sharp color for our furry little friends.  Then, I cut them out with my Stitched Shapes dies so that I could pop them up.

I stamped a few more fox tails for good measure and added greenery with the Leaf Punch and a leaf stamp from the Foxy Friends stamp set.

My sentiment is from one of my favorite sentiment stamp sets, Beautiful Bouquet.

Foxy Friends Stampin' Up!

Time is running out for Foxy Friends and other retiring Stampin' Up! product.  Is there retiring product on your list that you will regret not purchasing before it is gone?  Now's the time to scoop it up.
