I have been enjoying some “coloring therapy” lately.  I love my Stampin’ Blends and used them to color the beautiful designs on the DSP.

Both of these cards showcase simple layouts that you can use again and again with different DSP and sentiments.

The sentiment on this card from Butterfly Basics.  It is so versatile and can be used for birthday, Easter, Mother’s Day, Get Well, etc. I like the Powder Pink with the Rose Gold foil.  The DSP measures 3 1/4 x 3 1/2 and the layer is 1/8″more.  I used the Layering Ovals Framelits to cut and layer my stamped sentiment.  I colored the flower from the DSP using Old Olive and Pink Pirouette Blends.  I fussy cut it out and adhered with Stampin Dimensionals. Clean & Simple!

My next card showcases the other two patterns from this DSP as well as my favorite dies from Sale-A-Bration, Celebrate You.

This is another clean & simple card design. It’s just 2 pieces of DSP ( 2 x 4) with a ribbon in the middle to cover the seam. (You could add a banner instead of the ribbon.)  I love the Celebrate word die as it can be used for many different occasions.  The silver foil die ties in with the foil in the DSP as well as the metallic ribbon. I added a couple of vellum punched leaves behind the sentiment.

I used the Pool Party Blends to color the leaves to tie in with the card base.

Here’s another version of this card. It could be for a wedding, shower, engagement, or anniversary. I added the die cut heart from Sunshine Wishes Thinlits and a couple of metallic enamel hearts. Quick & easy!

Here’s a peek at all the new Designer Series Paper from the Occasions Catalog.

It’s no secret that I love DSP! I actually did a whole alphabet series on DSP! Here are links to several posts I did that show how to cut 6 x 6 and 12 x 12 DSP to make the most use of your paper. *The first link takes you to my first alphabet series, ABC’s of Stampin’ (which is a great series for anyone new to stamping). It also shows how I organize my DSP.

D is for Designer Series Paper

B is for Blooms & Bliss DSP

D is for Dapper Denim DSP

O is for One Sheet Wonder with DSP

Y is for Shades of Yellow

If you want to view the whole alphabet series with DSP, go to categories and click ABC’s with DSP. It will start with Z and go backwards.  *If you want to start with A, go to archives and begin at October 3, 2016.

Here’s another look at today’s cards.  Do you have a favorite?

Stampin Up candy treat holder. Quick & Simple treat holder made with Envelope Punch Board. For directions and more visit juststampin.com

Happy Fourth of July!  Welcome to my blog! Today I’m sharing my very first post, a party favor treat holder I made. It is quick and easy to make using the envelope punch board.

Start with a 4 x 4 piece of whisper white card stock.  Punch and score at 1 3/4″ and then follow directions on the envelope punch board to punch and score each side.

Next run it through the Big Shot using the Lucky Stars embossing folder.

Then fold on the score lines and attach with glue dots. I filled each with 2 mini KitKats I found at Target.  These are simply adorable and patriotic wrapped in stars and stripes. (They’re yummy too!)

Now the fun part….time to decorate!  I punched and cut different size stars using the star punch and various framelits (Stars, Wish Big, Mini Treat Bag).  Use whatever stars you have.  I used the paper piercing tool to punch two tiny holes to insert a sparkler (found at your local Walmart or in my case, under the seat of my car. It’s amazing what I can find there).

I added the sparklers to the treat holder and wrapped the holder with organza ribbon.  Tomorrow I will share with you my Tuesday Tip on how to make this ribbon in any color.

I stamped the banner and sentiment in Night of Navy ink on whisper white card stock using the Thoughtful Banners stamp set.  I punched it out using the Duet Banner Punch.  I also punched a banner with the dazzling diamonds glimmer paper and attached it offset with glue dots. Then  I added two of the metallic star enamel shapes on either side and attached to the treat holder with stampin dimensionals.

Oops!  I forgot to photograph how you can bend the photopolymer stamps to fit in the banner.  (I am new at this!!!) Look at all the choices this stamp set offers.  It was first on my wish list because of all the possibilities. (And the fact that it had a matching punch available as a bundle which makes creating so much easier and you save 10%).  I used the celebrate stamp for this project.

That’s it!  I hope you enjoy this project and have a wonderful day celebrating with family and friends.  Our party is going to have to move inside due to rain.
