Hello Love Gift Basket & Card


DIY Paper Gift Basket

 Did you know that you can create beautiful Gift Baskets with the Gift Box Punch Board?  I was playing in my studio last night and put together this little "hello love" paper basket using the Gift Box Punch Board.  

DIY Paper Gift Basket Tips

  • Use your Gift Box Punch Board to score Box as usual.  Instead of folding the corners inward, turn the folded corners outward. 
  • Punch holes in each corner and thread with ribbon or thick Baker's Twine to pull the corners snuggly.
  • Attach a handle.  I used Burlap Ribbon.
  • I stamped "hello love" from the Good Greetings Stamp set on my heart tag.  (Today, October 31, 2014 is the last day to receive an exclusive Good Greetings Stamp Set with a $300 order.)


Hello Love Gift Basket & i love us card

 Next, I needed a "i love us" card to present with my gift basket.

 This simple straight forward card features the Good Greetings stamp set, Banner & Hearts Collection Framelits, Duo Ticket Punch and Lullaby Designer Paper.


Groovy Love


Scraps from the card front and the Groovy Love stamp set fill out the card inside.

Four Feathers Bluebird of Happiness

Four Feathers

Just Sayin', Bravo, Gorgeous Grunge, Four Feathers and For the Birds-Wow, did I really use 5 stamp sets to complete this Congrats card?  What can I say, it was play time in my studio and I was having fun stamping.  This card is for an Ink-Spirations Team Member who promoted yesterday.

Just Sayin'

I stamped my feathers in Marina Mist and Tangelo Twist.  They remind me of Blue Birds with their pretty bold feathers. And its said that the Bluebird is the harbinger of happiness.

 Word bubbles and feathers are all the rage.  And...did you know that the Word Bubble Framelits are part of the October 28-November 3 Stampin' Up! Weekly Deals?


The Bravo stamp set says "Congrats" in so many happy ways.  And my favorite go to stamps-Gorgeous Grunge-are doing their thing in the background.

Frosted Sequins add bling and excitement.  I couldn't resist swiping "a little birdie told me" from the For the Birds stamp set.  I inked just the sentiment with a marker and left off the birds.


Color Throwdown

When I saw this week's Color Throwdown, it scared me a little bit.  But happily, these colors look great together after all.

Walk In the Wild

Walk in the Wild


Walk in the Wild Masculine Card

With 6 Sons and 8 Grandsons, not to mention my Husband, my life has been centered around guys for a long time.  So it's important to me to be able to make masculine cards.  With its rugged outdoorsy theme, the Walk in the Wild stamp set naturally makes great cards for the fellows.


Walk in the Wild


 Have you ever seen a moose in the wild?  They're BIG!   Such a magnificent animal calls for an oversized card, which also calls for an oversized envelope.  My card measures 6" x 4-1/4".  Love the sturdy Kraft Paper for larger card bases.  You guessed it, I made my custom envelope with the Envelope Punch Board



This handsome fellow was munching on vegetation along side the road this summer when we were visiting our son, Jeremiah, in Wyoming. 

Walk in the Wild


 I colored my moose with Crumb Cake and skin Tone Blendabilities for rich, vibrant color.  The grasses were colored with Old Olive Blendabilities and I swooshed a Night of Navy Blendability across my card stock for rich, deep blue sky.

Walk in the Wild

 It's very rewarding picking up random left over pieces of card stock and designer paper and putting them to use in unexpected ways.  Remaining pieces from my envelope and card front made a memorable presentation for the inisde of my card.
