Dino Days Treat Holder

Do you have a youngster (or oldster!) who likes dinosaurs?  If so, this Dino Days Treat Holder is perfect for when you want to give them a “little something”.  The Clear Tiny Treat Boxes are perfect for tiny treats and fun to decorate.  It’s been great fun creating different projects using the Dinoroar Suite Bundle and this Dino Days Treat Holder is no exception.  

Dino Days Clear Mini Treat Box

Here’s a side view:

Project Details:
  1.  Stamp dinosaur body from the Dino Days Stamp Set using Pool Party Classic Stampin’ Pad onto Whisper White cardstock.  Also, stamp the spikes using Pretty Peacock Classic Stampin’ Pad onto Whisper White cardstock.  Cut the pieces using the coordinating Dino Dies.  Attach the spikes to the dinosaur body using mini glue dots.
  2.  Using Mango Melody Classic Stampin’ Pad, stamp the sentiment onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut using the Stitched Nested Labels Dies.  TIP:  Position the die so that the sentiment will be closer to the right edge of the cut shape.  This will leave room to add the dinosaur.  Add the Dinosaur to the left side of the sentiment label using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  3. With Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad, stamp the fern fronds onto a scrap of Old Olive cardstock.  Stamp 3 times.  Cut using the coordinating die from the Dino Dies.
  4. Cut along the edging on an approximately a 2″ piece of 3/8″ Denim Ribbon.  Then fray the ribbon into threads.  Use Snail Adhesive to attach the frays to the sentiment piece (refer to project photo).  With mini glue dots, layer the 3 ferns and add to the top right edge of the sentiment label behind the frayed ribbon.  Embellish with a Dinoroar Enamel Shape.
Assemble the Box:
  1. Put the Clear Tiny Treat Box together.  TIP:  Don’t forget to remove the plastic film that protects the box.
  2. To create a liner for the box, cut a 6″ x 2″ piece of Mango Melody cardstock.  Score at 2″ and 4″ and insert into treat box.  For the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper, cut two pieces:  2″ x 4″ (score at 2″) and 2″ x 2″ piece (two pieces are cut so that the print goes in the same direction when inserted into the treat box).   Use a mini glue dot at the top of the designer series paper to hold it in place.
  3. To complete the treat box, attach the sentiment label to the box using Stampin’ Dimensionals and add your treat!  TIP:  For ease in opening the box, put the label on the box back so that the box lid opens from the back. This also keeps the sentiment label in place.

Royal Peacock Happy Birthday

Earlier this week, I shared a simple peacock note card.  Now, I’m sharing another card featuring the Royal Peacock Bundle.  It’s a Royal Peacock Happy Birthday card.  While the note card was simple, this card takes more time but the results are beautiful. Don’t you agree?  Card details and tips are continued below the card’s photo.


Royal Peacock Happy Birthday Card

Royal Peacock Happy Birthday Card Details:

The card base uses Blueberry Bushel cardstock cut 5-1/2″ x 8-1/4″ and scored, then folded at 4-1/4″.  A second card layer of Basic Black cardstock (5-1/4″ x 4″) is added.  The top layer is a layer of Noble Peacock Specialty Designer Series Paper in the Old Olive design (3-3/4″ x 5″).  TIP:  Before adding the Noble Peacock Designer Series Paper.  Wrap a piece of the Blueberry Bushel 1/8″ Grosgrain Ribbon around the paper (refer to photo for placement). 

Stamping the Peacock – TIP: Due to the complexity of the design, I recommend using the Stamparatus to ensure stamping success as you may need to re-ink and repeat the stamping. The peacock is a two stage stamp set.  First, stamp the full peacock using Stazon Jet Black Ink Pad onto a piece of Shimmery White cardstock.  Use the Old Olive watercolor pencil from the Watercolor Pencils set to color the back and lower feathers of the peacock.  With an aqua painter, lightly wash over the Old Olive coloring.  Using a clean aqua painter, color the top portion of the peacock using Blueberry Bushel ink.  For the second stage, stamp the additional feathers onto the lower area using Blueberry Bushel Classic Stampin’ Pad.  With the coordinating die from the Detailed Peacock Dies, cut the peacock shape.  Add to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.

For the sentiment:  Stamp the sentiment from the Here’s A Card stamp set onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Ink.  Cut shape using the Stitched Labels Nested Labels Dies.  If desired, trim the right side to align with the top layer of the card.  

Complete the card by adding Noble Peacock Rhinestones to embellish the peacock tail feathers and the sentiment.

Highlighting Dino Days

In today’s post, I am sharing a fun set of note cards highlighting the Dino Days Bundle.  In addition, the Scalloped Note Cards are featured. Not only are the note cards lots of fun to create, they are fun and playful looking.  The Dino Days Bundle includes the Dino Days Stamp Set and Dino Dies.  The Dino Days Bundle is included in the Dinoroar Suite Bundle along with the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper, 3/8″ Denim Ribbon and Dinoroar Enamel Shapes.  When starting to design the project, I first looked at the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper and used it as my color inspiration.  It was then when I realized that the designer series paper would coordinate beautifully with the Scalloped Note Cards.  If you’ve noticed in past posts, I am a huge fan of note cards.  Now with the Scalloped Note Cards, I have more creation options.  

Dino Days

Aren’t the dinosaurs cute?  I’ll let you in on a secret!  All of the dinosaurs used on the note cards were cut from the Dinoroar Designer Series Paper.  And no fussy cutting was required!  The Dino Dies matches perfectly with dinosaur images on some of the designer series paper.  

Here’s a tip for you when cutting the dinosaurs with spikes on their backs.  There are two separate dies, one for the dinosaur body and one for the spikes.  First cut the dinosaur body with the coordinating die.  After cutting, you will notice that the spike will not have enough paper for you to attach it to the dinosaur.  Therefore, adhere the spike to a scrap of whisper white cardstock and then cut it with the spike die.  This will provide you with enough paper to attach to the dinosaur.

A Pressed Petals Bouquet

Have you seen the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Series Paper on pages 74 & 167 in the Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalog?  It is absolutely gorgeous! The lightweight paper features photographic images of real pressed flowers on one side of the paper.  So when designing this card, I decided to use the photo of the Pressed Petals Bouquet on one of the papers. By using the Heirloom Frames Dies, a large oval helps to highlight the bouquet.  As an extra touch, the coordinating Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape creates a flower to embellish the card. Scroll below for more card details.

pressed petals bouquet

Card Base Details:

Create the card base using Crumb Cake cardstock (8-1/2″ x 5-1/2″, score and fold at 4-1/4″), Use the Oval Heirloom Frames Die from the Heirloom Frames Dies and 3-D Embossing Folders to cut a large oval from a 4″ x 5-1/4″ piece of Merry Merlot cardstock.  Cut the Pressed Petals Bouquet image from the Pressed Petals Specialty Designer Paper.  Attach the Merry Merlot frame to the photo of the Pressed Petals Bouquet using Multipurpose Liquid Adhesive.  TIP:  Before adhering, check DSP placement.  If the DSP extends past frame, trim before adhering the frame.  Once the liquid adhesive has dried, add the framed Pressed Petals Bouquet layer to the card front using adhesive.

Finishing Touches:

The “Hello There” greeting is from the Here’s A Card stamp set.  Create a Crumb Cake cardstock tag using the Banner Triple Punch and stamp the sentiment using Merry Merlot Classic Stampin’ Pad.  On the left side of the tag, use five of the Pressed Petals Specialty Washi Tape petals to create a flower.  TIP:  After placing the petals, use the Embossing Buddy to dust the back of the flower petals to prevent them from sticking to the card.  Stamp two sets of leaves (from the Floral Essence Stamp Set) using Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad onto Vellum cardstock.  Use the heat tool to dry the ink.  Once the ink is completely dry, use the leaf punch to cut the leaves.  Use mini glue dots to tuck the leaves behind the flower.  Attach the tag to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.  Then, complete by adding a Perennial Essence Floral Center to the flower.

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.
