Garden Lane Lotion Holder

At last month’s Luv 2 Stamp meeting, one of the make ‘n take projects included a Garden Lane Lotion Holder.  Fellow team member, Cindee Wilkinson, created the team project and selected the Garden Lane Designer Series Paper for the project.  The holder is wonderful!  A 1-oz. tube of the Bath & Body Works hand lotion fits perfectly inside of the box.  However, it is of ample size to hold other small gifts or treats.  If you participate in craft sales, this is a must project for you to add to your list!  It takes time to create and you can decorate it with a variety of tags.

Materials:

  • Garden Lane Designer Series Paper (4-1/2″ x 6″)
  • Delightful Tag Topper Punch
  • Whisper White Cardstock (scrap for tag and for 1″ circle )
  • Stitched Nested Labels Dies
  • Garden Green Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Pressed Petals Washi Tape
  • Embossing Buddy
  • 3/4″ circle punch
  • Perennial Essence Floral Center
  • Mossy Meadow cardstock (scraps for leaves)
  • Magnolia Memories Dies (for leaves dies) or use the Leaf Punch
  • Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set 
  • Tags and More Accessory Kit (Copper Clip)
  • Mint Macaron 1/4″ Textile Ribbon
  • Adhesives: Tear & Tape, Mini Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals

You’ll find the directions for assembling the Garden Lane Lotion Holder on Cindee’s blog, Just Sponge It.  Just click on the link to be taken to the lotion holder instructions.

To create the tag: 

Stamp the desired sentiment from the Good Morning Magnolia Stamp Set using Garden Green Classic Stamp Pad onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock (approximately 2″ x 2-1/4″).  Cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  Cut 2 leaves from the Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Magnolia Memory Dies.  Or, you may cut leaves using the leaf punch.  From a scrap of Whisper White cardstock, punch a 1″ circle.  Use the circle as a base for layering the Pressed Petals Washi Tape to create a flower. 

TIP:  After placing the first layer of 4 petals on the circle, dust the back of the exposed petals with the Embossing Buddy to remove the stickiness.  Add next layer, and gently lift petals to apply dust from Embossing Buddy.  The petals will stay curled upwards and not stick to the bottom layer. 

Complete the flower by adding a Perennial Essence Floral Center.  Add the two cut leaves to the back to the flower with mini glue dots and attach to the sentiment label using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Also use the dimensionals to attach the label to the lotion holder.  Close the lotion holder using the Copper Clip.  Tie a bow around the clip using the 1/4″ Mint Macaron Textile Ribbon.

Lace and Polka Dots!

As a youngster, I would never combine fussy patterns such as lace and polka dots, plaids and stripes, and so on.  You know, it was “too busy!”  Fast forward to today’s world and often it seems, the more patterns the better.  Case in point, my two year old granddaughter stayed with us this weekend and one of her dresses had multiple patterns combined.  I must admit it looked great. So for today’s card, I stepped outside the old way of thinking and combined lace and polka dots.  The lace comes from the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards and Tin.  So, be sure to check them out. 

Confession time!  For a couple of weeks, my craft table has held a laser-cut card with a cardstock lining while I was waiting for a design inspiration.  I would pick it up, play with different elements but nothing seemed to wow me.  It was during an online presentation this weekend by fellow demonstrator, Patty Bennett,  that inspiration started.  She presented a sample Bird Ballard Laser-cut card with a cardstock lining and discussed trying a patterned Designer Series Paper liner.   But for her design, she thought a solid background was best.  So, I started thinking…what if I use a small pattern as the panel behind the lace?  So the answer became lace and polka dots.  For my card, the Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Card has a lining of the pink polka dot pattern from the Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper.  Even better, the reverse side of the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper creates a beautiful interior panel on the card.  To avoid too many patterns, the card front design remains very simple.  Just a sentiment and a couple of elements fussy cut from the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper.  More details follow below the card photo.

Lace & Polka Dots using Bird Ballad Materials:
  • Bird Ballad Laser-Cut Cards & Tin
  • Bird Ballad Designer Series Paper (DSP) – Pink Polka Dot Design (4-1/8″ x 5-1/2″)
  • Very Vanilla cardstock  (approx 4-1/4″ x 2-1/2″)
  • Rooted In Nature Cling Stamp Set (sentiment)
  • Crumb Cake Classic Ink Pad
  • Versamark Ink Pad
  • Clear Stampin’ Emboss Powder
  • Embossing Buddy
  • Stamparatus
  • Simply Shammy
  • Heat Tool
  • Stitched Nested Labels Dies
  • Paper Snips
  • Petal Pink Organdy Stripped Ribbon
  • Rhinestones Basic Jewels
  • Adhesives: Multipurpose Liquid Glue, Snail Adhesive, Mini-Glue Dots, Stampin’ Dimensionals
Card Assembly:
  1. Attach the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper panel to the lace panel card interior using small dots of Multipurpose Liquid Glue.  NOTE:  Check that the reverse design is in the correct direction.
  2. Select sentiment and use Stamparatus to stamp onto the piece of Very Vanilla cardstock.  First, stamp the sentiment using Crumb Cake Stampin Pad.  Do not remove stamp from Stamparatus but use the Simply Shammy to carefully wipe the ink from the stamp.  Dust paper with the Embossing Buddy.  Use Versamark to ink stamp and stamp the sentiment again.  Carefully remove cardstock from the Stamparatus.  Apply Clear Emboss Powder and set using the heat tool.  
  3.  After the embossed sentiment is cool, cut using a Stitched Nested Labels Die.  
  4.  With paper snips, fussy cut floral elements from the Bird Ballard Designer Series Paper.  To avoid too much visual overload, I opted to keep the same color tones as the polka dot designer series paper.  Also, cut a bird from the paper.  TIP:  Select a partial bird from the edge of the DSP since you’ll be using just the bird’s head.  Also, cut an extra set of leaves to tuck around bird’s head and flowers.
  5.  Position the bird head and flowers around the sentiment piece.  Attach to the cardstock using snail and mini glue dots.
  6. Cut 2 pieces of the Petal Pink Organdy Stripped Ribbon approximately 3 inches in length.  Fold each in half and attach to the center of the laser cut panel at each side so that it will peek from behind the sentiment label.
  7. Next, attach the sentiment label using Stampin’ Dimensionals onto the laser-cut card and over the ribbon.
  8. Finish by adding small Rhinestone Basic Jewels to the center of the flowers.

Hope that I have inspired you to mix it up and try combining different patterns!

A Beautiful Wild Rose

A Beautiful Wild Rose card is one of the projects from this month’s card classes.  It features using the To A Wild Rose photopolymer stamp set.  The Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog has lots of beautiful floral sets but the To A Wild Rose is definitely one of my favorites.  The stamp set also has coordinating Wild Rose Dies and is offered with a 10% discount in the To A Wild Rose Bundle.  Two-step stamping can be used with the stamps so that depth of colors can be added to the images.  However, the outline stamp is beautiful to use by itself.  For this card, the wild roses are stamped using the two-step stamping method and the masking technique was also utilized.  Additional details are below the card photos.wild rose

Card Details:
Materials:
  • To A Wild Rose Photopolymer Stamp Set
  • Cardstock: Rich Razzleberry, Highland Heather, Whisper White, Garden Green & Vellum
  • Inks:  Tuxedo Black Memento Ink, Rich Razzleberry Classic Stampin’ Pad, Highland Heather Classic Stampin’ Pad, Garden Green Classic Stampin’ Pad
  • Dies: Wild Rose Dies, Stitched Nested Labels
  • 5/8″ Whisper White Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon
  • Noble Peacock Rhinestones
  • Adhesives: Snail, Mini Glue Dots and Stampin’ Dimensionals
Directions:
  1. Create the card base from a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Rich Razzleberry cardstock (score at 5-1/2″ & fold).  Add a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Highland Heather cardstock.
  2. Cut a piece of Whisper White cardstock (3-3/4″ x 5″) to use for stamping the wild roses.
  3. Before stamping the roses onto the Whisper White cardstock, create a wild rose “mask” to use for covering the roses.   To create the mask, stamp the rose outline stamp onto a 3″ x 3″ post-it note.  Be sure to stamp near the adhesive strip. Fussy cut the rose.  Set aside to use for covering the roses before stamping the leaves to the card.  TIP:  make multiple masks to speed the stamping process.  Also, save the mask inside of the stamp case and you’ll have it for future use.
  4. Using the Wild Rose outline stamp, randomly stamp three of the rose outlines onto the Whisper White cardstock using the Tuxedo Black Memento Ink.  Refer to card photo for placement.  For the full rose stamp, use Highland Heather ink pad to color the  rose base.  For the final rose stamp, use the Rich Razzleberry ink pad.  Attach to card base using Snail adhesive.
  5. Place the “masks” over the stamped roses.  Stamp the leaves using Garden Green ink pad.  The leaves outline stamp and only one of the leaves layer stamp are used.
  6. With the Wild Rose Dies, cut 2 open leaves from a scrap of Garden Green cardstock and 3 of the small flowers from the Vellum cardstock.  Add them to the card with mini glue dots. TIP :  Prepare the sentiment layer (step 7) and use as a guide for placement of the embellishment pieces.
  7. Stamp the sentiment onto a scrap of Whisper White cardstock and cut using the small Stitched Nested Labels Die.  With a larger Stitched Nested Labels Die, cut a scrap of the Rich Razzleberry cardstock.  Layer the two pieces using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Add to the card using Snail Adhesive.   
  8. Complete the card by adding a Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon Bow and a Noble Peacock Rhinestone as seen in card photo.
Have fun coming up with your own color combinations using the To A Wild Rose stamp set.  Be sure to comment below what color combinations you select!
