Welcome to the Stampin’ Pretty Pals’ Blog Hop! This month, the theme is Fantastic Fun Folds and 3D Projects. We really hope that you enjoy & will be inspired by them! As you hop from blog to blog, don’t forget to leave comments because we love hearing from you. You will find the lineup at the end of my post to help you “hop” along from Pal to Pal.

This month’s theme is all about fun folds & 3D projects. With the holidays knocking on our doors, I thought I would get a jump start on some holiday gifts. For anyone who knows me, knows I love lavender. I am still in denial that summer has come to an end even though I was out all weekend winterizing the yard. With everyone washing their hands with a little more intensity these days, I thought lavender hand cream would make a great gift in the cold winter months ahead.

Step By Step Tutorial-

Box Instructions

Cut In Good Taste DSP 7 x 8 ¼

Score on the long side (8 ¼) at 2″, 4″, 6″, 8″; burnish the score lines with a bone folder

Score on the short side (7) at 2″; burnish the score lines with a bone folder

Cut on the vertical lines (2, 4, 6, 8) up to the 2″ score line. Cut off the tiny rectangle & discard

Apply Tombow liquid glue to the ¼” scored area, then fold over to seal & create the box

Glue the bottom flaps together using Tombow liquid glue. Use the fat end of a bone folder to help press the flaps together & give them a good seal.

Lid Instructions

Cut Hand Penned DSP 4 ½ x 4 ½

Score 1 ¼ on all 4 sides; burnish the score lines with a bone folder

Cut the vertical lines on 2 of the sides up to the score line; miter the edges on the 1 ¼” squares

Use Tombow liquid glue to glue the edges to form the lid

Creating the Lavender Bouquet

Die cut the “lavender” from the Harvest dies using watercolour paper.

Water colour the “lavender” using the medium round tip water painter brush using Highland Heather & Old Olive inks.

Once the paper is dry, snip apart to create 3 lavender sprigs. Then, using Tombow liquid glue, build the lavender bouquet.

Cut the linen thread to your desired lengh x2. Pull the threads apart, then tie into a “messy” bow around the lavender bouquet. Trim to desired length.

Adhere the bouquet to the DSP box

More inspiration awaits, so use the lineup below to visit the rest of the Design Team. The Pals are excited to show you what they’ve created! Then, please mark your calendars for our next blog hop on November 10th. Our theme will be “Home for the Holidays” when our Design Team creates a project to celebrate the upcoming holidays. Until then, have fun in your craft space.

Merry Christmoose!

You got it, another Pinterest find. This is a super quick & simple card!

I started with a Whisper White card base. I layered it with Real Red cardstock cut to 5 ¼ x 4 & Whisper White cut to 5 x 3 ¾. Onto to the Whisper White, I stamped the moose from the Merry Moose stamp set (150494) using Early Espresso for his body then stamped the outline using Memento Black ink. Even though I did not get the stamps lined up perfectly, I liked the effect of snow on his back. The sentiment was stamped in Real Red. The hat & scarf were stamped in Real Red onto Whisper White CS then fussy cut out & adhered using dimensionals. I added Wink of Stella to the hat & scarf for a subtle bling. The layers were adhered to the card base using dimensionals.

The Merry Moose stamp set is on the retiring list; available while supplies last.

Oh Deer, Another Birthday

Here is another super simple card thanks to the Most Wonderful Time kit. I started with a Whisper White card base. I cut a piece of Old Olive to 5 x 3 ¾. On a piece of Whisper White I stamped the trees in Old Olive ink using a stamp from the Merry Moose stamp set (150494) To create the forest, I used the stamp off technique. I ink up the stamp & stamp 1-3 times before reinking it; it helps give a depth to the forest. The sentiment was stamped in Old Olive. Once I glued the Whisper White to the Old Olive layer, I popped it up on the card base using dimensionals. The deer is a sticker from the Most Wonderful Time Product Medley refill kit (151270) current on sale for $20.80 on the retiring list.

Oh Deer, Happy Birthday

For this simple birthday card, I started with Grey Granite as the card base. I added another layer of Grey Granite cut to 5 x 3 ¾. I stamped the tree from the Merry Moose stamp set (150494). I used the stamp off technique; I inked it up with Old Olive then stamp 1-3 times before reinking it to give the trees a depth feeling to them. Once I was done stamping, I ran it through the embossing machine using my favourite Subtle 3D EF (151775). I stamped the sentiment in Old Olive onto a 5 x ½ piece of Grey Granite cardstock then popped it up with dimensionals. The deer is a sticker from the Most Wonderful Time Product Refill Kit (151270). **on sale for $20.80 while supplies last**. The star is also from the same kit.
