OnStage Display Board Sample – Mini Treat Bag featuring Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper

I was excited to have been selected to participate at OnStage as a display board sample maker and it was a lot of fun to receive a box of upcoming products from Stampin’ Up! to use for making the samples.  Of course, it required that I not share the products or show finished projects until after the meeting and now I am able to start sharing the projects with you.  One of the new products received was the Garden Impressions Designer Series Paper package – this 6″x 6″ package of paper containing 4 each of 12 double-sided designs is gorgeous and I used it for making most of my projects.  The first project being highlighted is a Mini Treat Bag made with one of the papers from the package.  My box of new products also contained the Blossoms Elements embellishments and the Petal Pink Metallic Ribbon so they were used on this project also.  A Delicate White Doily was wrapped around one edge of the mini treat bag and held in place with the Powder Pink Cardstock belly band.  After wrapping the ribbon around the band, the Sweet Cake Framelits Dies were used to cut the Tranquil Tide Cardstock and Gold Foil creating a backdrop for the flower embellishments.  The tag was cut using the Bouquet Bunch Framelits and stamped using the coordinating Beautiful Bouquet Stamp Set.

Petal Palette meets Mini Pizza Box

While attending OnStage, I participated in a swap so I opted to use the mini pizza box and embellish it to create a WOW 3-d project. One of my favorite stamps in the Occasions Catalog is the Petal Passion Suite and it has become one of my “go to” bundles so naturally I reached for it to use for creating a topper for the box.  Using a strip of the Petal Passion Designer Series Paper (1 3/4″ in width), a belly band was made to wrap around the mini-pizza box.  Then using the large circle framelit from the Stitched Shaped Framelits and Whisper White cardstock, a base to was cut to use for adhering a layer of leaves, a loop of mini sequin trim and the large floral spray from the Petal Palette stamp set, The leaves were cut from Tranquil Tide card stock using a leaf framelit from the Bouquet Bunch Framelits set.  The floral spray was stamped using Tuxedo Black Memento Ink then sponge daubers were used to apply Berry Burst and Tranquil Tide inks.  The sentiment is from the Perennial Birthday stamp set and was stamped onto a strip of Berry Burst cardstock using the tuxedo black ink and cut using the Petals and More Thinlits Dies, which were also used for cutting the stamped floral spray.  Dimensionals and glue dots were used to hold the layers in place. The finishing touch was to add a double looped bow using solid Whisper White Baker’s Twine and adding a few “dew drops” from the Glitter & Clear Epoxy Shapes.  Recipients could easily slide the belly band from the mini pizza box to see what goodies were inside for them to enjoy!
