Garden in Bloom note cards

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

Like the gift tags I posted yesterday, I made these three note cards (3” x 4”) using Stampin’ Up! Garden in Bloom stamp set and the old (retired) In-colour, Coastal Cabana, Crisp Cantaloupe and Summer Starfruit.

Other two stamp sets used on the cards are Writing Note (background stamp) and From the Garden (message). I used also the left over Sweet Sorbet DSP (an old sale-a-bration item) on the cards and their envelopes.

Berry Basket without a die

Berry basket without a die_tutorial 6

I have made another berry basket from scratch (without a die) and used Stampin’ Up! Garden in Bloom stamp set to decorate it.

This is a diagram of all the measurements. Sorry it is not very clear, but I hope it is readable.

These are the steps I used:

1. Cut 2 pieces of cardstock to the size of 4” x 8 ¾”

On each piece:

2. Score along the 8 ¾” length at 2 ¾” and 6”

3. On each score line, mark 3/8” from both left and right ends

4. Remove the sections with diagonal lines

5. Use a cutter to create three gaps on the sides of basket, space the three gaps somewhat evenly. Here I cut to about 1” height.

6. Assemble the basket by aligning both pieces perpendicular to each other, adhere the middle part (bottom of basket) of both pieces together with strong adhesive or glue

7. Join all four sides of the basket at the top edge, using strong adhesive. Here I used ordinary double sided tape and then reinforced it with liquid glue.

8. Add patterned paper to hide the adhesive. I used paper clip to hold the patterned paper while allowing the liquid glue to dry.

9. Decorate the basket. I love this Garden in Bloom stamp set a lot and have used it to make a few cards and tags.

Six-Sided Sampler Happy Birthday card

Six-Sided Sampler birthday card 1

I am getting a little bit better with making cards for male recipients. I found Six-Sided Sampler is one of the stamp sets that are good for both male and female themes. This is a birthday card I made for David. The word ‘Happy Birthday’ is from Butterfly Basics stamp set.

The card will be signed by everyone in the team and my team is currently working on projects relating to tropical fruit, so I added some wooden fruit shapes on the hexagons inside of the card.

Paper gift tote

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I saw many cute paper totes on Pinterest and really wanted to make one.  Lucky I found a video tutorial at Dawn’s Stamping Thoughts. Dawn made it very easy to follow. Here is the tote I made for a friend.

I filled the tote with a few handmade cards with envelopes. The gift box from brown packing paper I made last week also fit in this tote.

The butterflies from Stampin’ Up! Butterflies thinlits dies are so pretty and will add beauty to almost any projects. Here I used a solid butterfly from cardstock and a delicate butterfly from baking paper.

Gift boxes from brown packing paper

Bussakorn Mpelasoka: Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator, Canberra

I have another upcycle project to share today. I used the brown packing paper to make these boxes to carry little thank you gifts for my lovely friends who ordered Stampin’ Up! products through me.

I made quite a few of them for different other occasions too.

I embossed the paper with Stampin’ Up! Fluttering embossing folder. I love this embossing folder, it is very large and very pretty. After embossed, the paper doesn’t look like it was recycled from the wrinkly packing paper.

Each box is about 2 5/8” wide, 2 5/8” long and 1¼” deep and can hold about two to three rolls of washi tape. The Stampin’ Up! round embellishment box also fits perfectly in there.
