Beautiful Bunch Boxed Card Set – Stampin’ Up!

I love Pinterest for all the creative inspiration it provides.  Today’s card was one that I CASED from Pinterest, and features the Beautiful Bunch stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  To see the original card created by Beth Rush that inspired this design, click here.

Beautiful Bunch Boxed Set (5 of 10)

I am starting to think ahead to the holidays (which will be here before we know it), and I’ve decided to make boxed sets of cards for my son’s teachers.  Although I loved the original design of this card on Pinterest, I made a few changes.  I didn’t want to hand color all of the flowers, so I stamped them on Rich Razzleberry card stock with Blackberry Bliss ink.  I also decided to make the center yellow.

I wanted the sentiment to be one that could be used for any occasion, so I chose “Just for You” from the Work of Art stamp set from Stampin’ Up!  The background was created using the Dotty Angles photopolymer stamp set.  At first, I wasn’t sure I would get much use out of that stamp set because it only contains 2 border stamps, but I am so glad I ordered it.  It turns out that those dots are just too cute and can be used to add something special to so many cards.

Finally, I made a card box with a coordinating belly band to tie everything together.  For the box, I began with a 9″ x 9″ piece of Kraft card stock.  Using the Envelope Punch Board, I punched and scored along one edge at the 3-1/2″ and 4-1/2″ score lines.  Then I turned the card 180 degrees and followed the same procedure.  For the remaining sides, I lined up my scored lines with the score guide and scored accordingly.

The Belly band was created with an 11″ x 1-3/4″ strip of Mossy Meadow card stock, layered with a 1-1/2″ x 11″ strip of Whisper White.  I stamped the white piece, glued it to the green and then scored at 2-3/4″, 3-5/8″, 8″, and 8-7/8″.

Of course, a card set wouldn’t be complete without matching envelopes, so I did a little stamping on those too!

This card box will hold 4 cards and 4 matching envelopes, even with quite a bit of embellishment on the cards.

I am really pleased with how this set turned out.  I know I would love to receive it as a gift, and I hope my son’s teacher agrees.  I may just have to make another set for myself!  If you like this project, I hope you will pin it to Pinterest for me. You will find a “pin it” button at the end of this post below the supply list.

A “Beautiful Bunch” of New Products from Stampin’ Up!

Now that the craft studio is finished, I’m really having a lot of fun delving into all my new stuff from Stampin’ Up!  Today’s card features several new products from the 2014 Annual Catalog.  I used the new Fun Flower Punch and the Flower Frenzy Die to create the main focal point, but there are lots of other new things included in the details too.

I had so much fun playing with the new Back to Black and Flowerpot Designer Series Paper packs for this project.  I love the combination of Lost Lagoon, Basic Black, and Whisper White.  And who said leaves have to be green, right?  For a detailed list of all the card stock cuts and dimensions, scroll to the very bottom of this post.

For the center of my large flowers, I used the new Beautiful Bunch stamp set.  I love how the bold black center brings the flowers to life.  Add a little sponging around the edges and a pearl accent in the middle and you are in business!  For the tiny flowers, I used the Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack.  That little flower is fast becoming one of my favorite punches!  It is such a perfect item for “filling in” a project.
