Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop: Heart Happiness Box

Hi! Welcome to the Stampin’ Dreams Blog Hop! This is a monthly hop with Stampin’ Up! friends around the world; you’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA. This month’s theme is Love, and I’m sure you’ll find tons of love-themed projects to inspire you in your crafting.

Stampin' Up! Heart Happiness & Teeny Tiny Wishes handmade treat box for York peppermint patties - Valentine's Day - Love - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts #SDBH

I bled to bring you this darling little treat box. That’s how much I love y’all.

Other than my thumb, which sustained a stupidity-related injury and which for the moment has limited mobility, I had fun making this little box. It fits one little Valentine-themed York peppermint patty. Here are the dimensions:

On the right you can see how I cut and scored the cardstock to make the box.

Here’s the box after cutting and scoring. The notch for opening the box isn’t on here but it would be punched with the 1/2″ circle punch on the edge that’s at the bottom of the picture (opposite the edge with rounded corners).

Here’s what the box looks like after you assemble it (I used Tear & Tape) and before you close it.

I used the Heart Happiness stamp set to decorate the box. Make sure to do the stamping on the box before you assemble it. For the solid heart with the imprint of the flower, I used two stamps from the set. There is a solid heart stamp and a little flower stamp. I mounted both stamps, then inked the solid heart up with Flirty Flamingo ink, then kissed the flower stamp to the heart to take the ink off of the heart and leave the imprint, then stamped.

Stampin' Up! Birthday Wit, Bubbles & Fizz paper, Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper - handmade birthday card - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts

Good evening! It’s late, I know. I just was too sleepy to blog last night, tbh, and this is the first chance I’ve had. So here’s a fun and bright birthday card.

I always like the punny or sarcastic or silly stamps. This new stamp set, Birthday Wit, has a few fun sentiments for birthday cards that are a little irreverent (and poke fun at food weirdos like me, because one of them is about being gluten-free, dairy-free, carb-free, etc. — I can’t eat anything fun).

The two designer papers on this card are from the FREE (with $50 purchase) Sale-A-Bration paper, Bubbles & Fizz. How fun is this paper?! I’m probably going to need a second pack. And look at that gorgeous Glimmer Paper! This is the Myths & Magic Glimmer Paper (it comes in 3 colors). LOVE!

Do you see the bottom edge of the Whisper White cardstock panel that the sentiment is stamped on? I have been neglectful of this fun little border punch! I don’t know why, because it’s so cute. This is the Ticket Tear Border Punch. I’m glad I pulled it out.

Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop: Heart Happiness

Welcome to the Ink & Inspiration Blog Hop! We are a small group of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators around the world who love to share our creativity with others. You’re currently visiting Sarah Fleming in the USA.

Stampin' Up! Heart Happiness and Ribbon of Courage stamps with Painted Love designer series paper - New Occasions 2018 catalog items - Sarah Fleming - Prepare to Dye Papercrafts - #IIBH

 

This month our theme for the hop is Fun/Fancy Folds. These are not my strong suit, so I searched through some YouTube videos and found this one by Patsy Waggoner for a “Snip & Tuck” (haha) card. I changed up the size for my card to make it mailable. My card base measures 4″ x 11″, scored and folded at 5.5″. I’m not sure why I chose 4″ instead of 4.25″. (Yes I am — I was tired.)

I cut the lines to make the fun fold the same as in the tutorial (2″ in from the right side is the starting point).

Here you can see the cuts. After I made the cuts on the cardfront and the inside of the card, I stamped the dotted heart on the inside of the Melon Mambo card base in Melon Mambo ink, then the little accent hearts. The dotted heart shows on the front of the card when the two sides overlap.

This is the cardfront without the overlap.

And here it is all closed up and decorated. I used the Painted Love paper (coming next week!) and the Heart Happiness stamp set (same). The sentiment is from Ribbon of Courage. See the full supply list at the end of the post.

I hope you enjoyed my card today! Make sure you follow the hop all the way back to me so you can see everyone else’s projects. The designers on this team are so talented — you won’t want to miss any of the blogs!
