May 3D Tutorial Bundle & Blog Hop

It’s a new month and to kick it off, we have the May 3D Tutorial Bundle!  In addition to the May 3D Tutorial Bundle, the team is featuring a blog hop.  We’re each sharing a project created to coordinate with our tutorial project.  This month’s tutorial bundle feature a variety of creative projects.

Remember, the projects designed for the 3D tutorial bundle aren’t available elsewhere online.  Therefore, you’ll receive EXCLUSIVE projects in the tutorial bundle.  In addition, both Imperial and Metric measurements are included for each project.

Now for a Sneak Peek of the May 3D projects…

The card below coordinates with my 3D project and is great to use when you need a card with a masculine theme.  Be sure to “hop along” following the links at the bottom of this page to check out the other projects from the 3D Tutorial Bundle Design Team.  Sailing Home

Card Details:
  • Card Base: Balmy Blue (5-1/2″ x 11″, score at 4-1/4″ and fold to create card)
  • Add 4-1/8″ x 5-3/8″ piece of the striped Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper to the card base using adhesive. 
  • Cut the compass design of the Come Sail Away Designer Series Paper (3-7/8″ x 5-1/8″) and attach to the striped layer on the card.
  • On a 2-1/2″ x 2-1/2″ piece of Whisper White cardstock, stamp the small sailboat from the Sailing Home Stamp Set using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink Pad.  Color the boat using Balmy Blue Light Stampin’ Blends Marker and Crumb Cake Light Stampin’ Blends Marker.  Cut using the coordinating Smooth Sailing Dies.

Dressed To Impress

During the cleaning and reorganizing of my craft cave recently, I came across a package of Lipstick Ink Pens ordered from Amazon last year for one of those “good intentions” projects.  You know you have “good intentions” to make a project, order all the materials but it never gets made!  Can you relate? Thought I can’t remember the original design, I knew the Dressed to Impress bundle would be perfect to create a 3D project using the ink pens.  Even better, the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper contains a variety of colors to coordinate with the Lipstick Ink Pens. The resulting project is a Lipstick Pen and Post-It Note Holder.

For this week’s Playtime with Paper team online meeting, members received a kit for creating this project.  It was a fun to be able to meet virtually and craft together making the project.  

Dressed To Impress Lipstick Pen Holder

Project Materials:
  • Cut the following pieces of cardstock: 
    • Base:  4-1/4″ x 11″, score at 5-1/2″ and fold.  
    • Inner Support: cardstock 4″ x 4-1/2″.  On the 4-1/2″ side, score at 1/2″, 2-1/4″ and 4″.  Fold along score lines to form a “W”.  

    •  Lipstick holder: 3-1/2″ x 2-3/4″.  Score along the 3-1/2″ side at 3/4″, 1-1/2″, 2-1/4″ and 3″.  Score the 2-3/4″ side at 2″.  Use bone folder to burnish along the score lines.
    • For sentiment: Whisper White cardstock 2-1/4″ x 2-1/4″
  • Select desired Best Dressed Designer Series Paper and cut as follows:
    • 5-1/4″ x 4″
    • 3 pieces at 1/2″ x 1-3/4″
  • Dressed To Impress Stamp Set
  • Classic Stampin’ Pad to coordinate with project 
  • Stitched Shaped Dies
  • Coordinating ribbon 
  • 2″ x 2″ Post-It Notes
  • Lipstick Ink Pens (Amazon link)
Project Assembly:
  • Use the 5-1/4″ x 4″ Best Dressed Designer Series Paper to one side of the cardstock base.  This will be the front side of your project.
  • Attach the inner support piece to the inside of the base.  To do so, add a strong adhesive such as Tear & Tape Adhesive or Multipurpose Liquid Glue to the outside of each of the 1/2″ flaps and attach each flap to the lower interior edge of the base.

  • Create the lipstick holder.  With paper snips, cut along each score line on the 3-3/4″ side up to the 2″ scored line.  After cutting, you will have 4 tabs that are 3/4″ and one tab that is 1/2″. Cut and remove the 1/2″ tab up to the 2″ score line then cut a small angle at bottom of the tab.  Trim along each side of the tab.  Add adhesive to outside of the 1/2″ tab and fold side over to create tube.  Fold each of the flaps and seal with adhesive to form the tube bottom.  Finish by adding the 1/2″ x 1-3/4″ Designer Series Paper to three sides of the tube.  With strong adhesive, add the lipstick tube holder to the front panel of the base.

  • Add the Post-It Notes to the front of the base using a strong adhesive aligning the bottom of note pad with bottom of lipstick tube holder.
  • Stamp sentiment onto the Whisper White cardstock.  Cut using the circle Stitched Shapes Die.  
  • Add the sentiment above the post-it notes using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • Embellish by adding a small bow using Mini Glue Dots.  

Have fun selecting your favorite Best Dressed Designer Series Paper and coordinating cardstock to create a Lipstick Pen Holder and Post-It Notes holder for your desk.  Be sure to share your project with me in the comments section!

Important to note:

A reminder that Stampin’ Up! has released the Last-Chance Product List. The list includes the Best Dressed Designer Series Paper and the Dressed to Impress Bundle.  The designer series paper will no longer be available after June 3 or while supplies last.  The Dressed to Impress Stamp Set and the coordinating All Dressed Up dies will return in the 2020-2021 Annual Catalog but not offered as a bundle.  Recall that a bundle saves you 10% vs purchasing the items individually.

April 3D Tutorial & Blog Hop

It’s a new month and to kick it off, we have the April 3D Tutorial Bundle!  In addition to the April 3D Tutorial Bundle, the team is featuring a blog hop.  We’re each sharing a project created to coordinate with our tutorial project.  The theme for this month is Mother’s Day and more Spring Celebrations.  

Remember, the projects designed for the 3D tutorial bundle aren’t available elsewhere online.  Therefore, you’ll receive EXCLUSIVE projects in the tutorial bundle.  In addition, you’ll receive both Imperial and Metric project measurements.

Here’s a Sneak Peek of the April 3D projects…

You’re going to love the projects featured in this month’s tutorial! 

The card to coordinate with my 3D project is for Mother’s Day but the sentiment can easily be changed to use for a variety of occasions.  Be sure to scroll below the card photo for card details and the Design Sketch.

The card design utilizes the sketch below:Card Details:
  • To create the card base, cut a 4-1/4″ x 11″ piece of Seaside Spray cardstock and score/fold at 5-1/2″.
  • Next, make the second layer using a piece of 3-1/4″ x 4-1/2″ Whisper White cardstock.  With the “splotch” stamp from the Delightful Day stamp set and Seaside Spray Classic Stampin’ pad, stamp a background on the Whisper White cardstock.  TIP: stamp off once before stamping onto the cardstock to create a light background. 
  • After stamping the background, emboss the second layer using the Subtle 3D Embossing Folder. 
  • With the large Stitched Shapes circle die, cut the Seaside Spray gingham print from the 6″ x 6″ In-Color Designer Series Paper.  Referring to the design sketch, cut the right side portion of the circle and attach to the Whisper White cardstock layer.  Add to card base.
  • Using the Daisy Lane stamp set & Seaside Spray Classic Stampin’ Pad, stamp six medium daisies onto Whisper White cardstock.  With coordinating Daisy Punch, cut the daisies.  Then, layer two daisies together, adhering at the center with mini glue dots.
  • Cut four leaves from Old Olive cardstock using the Lovely Leaves Dies.  Optional: sponge the edge of the leaves with Old Olive Classic Stampin’ Pad ink.
  • Next, add leaves to daisies with mini-glue dots and attach to card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals.
  • For an added touch, cut 2″-3″ strips of Polka Dot Tulle Ribbon and tuck among daisies using adhesive.
  • Using the Happy Mother’s Day sentiment in the Dressed to Impress Stamp Set, to stamp sentiment onto a strip of Whisper White cardstock.  Cut into a banner shape using the Merry Christmas Dies.  Sponge along the edge of the banner with the Seaside Spray ink. Then, add the banner to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals
  • To complete the card front, add a Clear Faceted Gem to the center of each daisy.
The Mother’s Day card along with the 3D project was lots of fun to create.  Utilizing a Design Sketch when making a card is also a fun challenge.
