Lotus Blossom – HBD Ines

By Bussakorn Mpelasoka

Today’s card is a happy birthday card for my colleague, Ines. I used Stampin’ Up! sale-a-bration Lotus Blossom stamp set as the main focus of the card. The colours of the flower are Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink and Primrose Petals.

I kept inside of the card more or less similar to the front, but without the lotus tag.

Ines has sweet tooth so I wrap some Ferrero Rocher in a little box for her. I used an empty Lipton green tea box, trimmed it to be a bit shorter, decorated with designer paper and made a lid for it. Four Ferrero Rocher fit perfectly in the box.

Gift card holder etc

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

Life was a bit hectic for me during the past few months. I made a gift card holder for my daughter for Christmas on the night of Christmas Eve! I ran out of ideas that night so I look around the works created by others and chose to CASE the one Tania made.

This is what I made.

Below is Tania’s product – so bright and so beautiful! I didn’t want to change a thing, but because I don’t have a few tools/materials that Tania used so I was forced to modify it a little, using what I have.

Here is a box of Ferrero Roche I made.

I wrapped a ‘Dream, then Do’ journal (got from Kikki) for my daughter and added a bow I made using the envelope punch board, which I learnt from Jenny
Day
. It is amazing how clever and creative many SU demonstrators are, and they share their creativity so willingly. I am glad I am a part of the SU family.

My daughter wanted a certain nutrition book, unfortunately the book only arrived yesterday!

Upcycle with Stampin’ Up! products

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

We love green tea and often try different flavours/brands. Recently we tried Lipton Jasmine tea. Inside a big box, tea bags were packaged in small boxes then foiled. The size of small boxes is similar to the boxes/baskets I made for Christmas gifts (chocolate & candy cane) last year. I thought using these Lipton tea boxes will save me time & material, while making use of what would otherwise be waste.

I used ‘My Friend’ stamp set on white paper, a small heart and a small Itty Bitty flower to decorate the 1st box. Colours are Bermuda Bay, Tangerine Tango and Daffodil Delight. The lid is made from new designer paper stack (available from 2 July).

I used ‘Gingham’ wheel stamp to create the gingham paper for this 2nd box. ‘Happy Halloween’ sentiment is from ‘Delightful Dozen’ stamp set. I drew the bat & hand cut it.

The 3rd box is decorated using ‘Tag It’ stamp set & ‘Gingham’ wheel stamp and added a few stars made from silver glimmer paper.

I used ‘Owl Occasions’ stamp set (retired) to decorate the back of this box.

For this 4th box, I used ‘Betsy’s Blossom’ and ‘Blooming Marvellous’ (Sale-a-bration freeby early this year) stamp sets. I added a handle to turn it to a basket. I decided to use it to store my ink refills etc. I love soft colours, but they are actually not as pale as appeared in the photos.

I decided to simply use the pretty ‘Gingham Garden’ paper (available from 2 July) to cover the 5th box. The lid is made from ‘Just Add Cake’ paper (retired).

Box for gift tags – Stampin’ Up! new in-colours

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator, Canberra

I’ve made a little box to hold the four gift tags that I made this morning. It will be a thank you gift for a friend of mine who is always supportive. I usually like to make boxes with lids, but a couple of weeks ago I came across a criss-cross box you tube by Tanya Bell and was inspired. It only needs half A4 card stock to make. Here is the link to Tanya Bell’s you tube.

And here is my version of the criss-cross box.

Tea for Two Gift Box

By: Bussakorn Mpelasoka, Stampin’ Up! ® Independent Demonstrator

Hi everyone.  I just had my first craft class today.  I have planned 4 projects for this class, a greeting card, a gift card/voucher holder, a notepad cover and a gift tag.  We could only complete 3 projects. Considering that each project is quite hands on and most attendants are new to paper crafts, I think we did well.  Everyone was so lovely.  It is a good learning experience for me and I will plan and do better next time.

What I want to share with you today is the gift boxes that I made for everyone who came to my class today.  I actually made 7 boxes in 7 different colours. Here is the one in ‘pretty in pink’.
