Gift Box Punch Board Video Tutorial – Stampin’ Up!

Last week, I shared this adorable box that I created using the Gift Box Punch Board and the Bright and Beautiful stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  For this project, I altered the dimensions of the box, and I had several requests for a video tutorial to show how I did it.

Bright & Beautiful (10 of 12)

Your wish is my command!  By playing around with the Gift Box Punch Board, I discovered that the “start line” controls the size of the box’s base, and the size of the paper controls the height of the box.  However, if you change those things around, the diagonal score lines no longer match up, so you have to custom create the diagonals.  Check out my video to see how it is done.

 

 

I hope you are a fan of this project and will pin it to Pinterest for me.  You will find a “pin it” button at the bottom of this post below the supply list and card stock cuts.  Also, please subscribe to my blog via email by clicking on the “follow” button if you enjoy reading my posts.

Giggle Greetings… Age Only Counts if You’re a Cheese! – Stampin’ Up!

Today’s project is a silly birthday card featuring the Giggle Greetings stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  I just love the goofy sentiments in this set.  They are perfect for putting a smile on anyone’s face.

Giggle Greetings - Cheese (5 of 4)

I decided to use my Labels Collection Framelits Dies to create a window in the front of my card.  I like how this technique allows the stamped image to be the focal point of the front of the card as well as the inside.

I colored this image using my Stampin’ Blendabilities markers.  The coloring only took a couple of minutes, but it really makes the card pop!

Sweet Stripes from Paper Pumpkin – Stampin’ Up!

Last week, while I was home caring for my sick little guy, a surprise arrived in the mail… My Paper Pumpkin!  It is always fun to see what’s in the box.  And, it was nice to have a simple project that I could work on while he was napping!

August 2014 Paper Pumpkin (3 of 5)

I have to say I love this month’s kit.  It came with enough supplies to create four large cards and four small cards plus some super cute envelopes to match.  There were also extra die cut sheets and banners that I can use for another project (also nice in case you make a mistake).

August 2014 Paper Pumpkin (4 of 5)

The kit includes everything you need… card bases, banners, stamps, ink, adhesive, envelopes, embellishments.  The only thing I had to provide was a pair of scissors. Another nice thing about this kit is that it covered many different occasions: friendship, congratulations, birthday, and thank you!  🙂

August 2014 Paper Pumpkin (5 of 5)

The kit includes a cute little circle stamp perfect for making the small polka dots on the white die cut panel.  However, after stamping small polka dots on three of the cards, I decided to pull out my Gorgeous Grunge stamp set and play with it instead.  I love the effect, and I have to admit it went much faster than the individual polka-dots.

August 2014 Paper Pumpkin (6 of 5)

Check out the cute envelopes that came with this month’s Paper Pumpkin kit.  The large cards came with pink and yellow solid envelopes, but the smaller cards had cute polka-dots and stars on them!  The small cards are just the perfect size to put on top of a gift too!  For the smaller cards, I used the And Many More stamp set to change up the greetings.
