Ice Cream Sundae in a Box - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Welcome to another week of the Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Next week we won't be hopping because it falls on Christmas. Don't worry! We will be back the week after with some amazing projects using new product from the Occasions Catalog. Today we are sharing our project that will be featured on the Stampin' Up! Facebook page, and I have a great gift idea you could give friends or neighbors. 

It's an ice cream sundae in a box! The only thing that needs to be added is ice cream! I included toppings, cones, plastic bowls, and even spoons.

I started by making my box out of the chipboard-like material in the back of things like our Foil Sheets. This is a great way to use up something that is too good to toss! The finished size of the box is 8-1/2"x11" and is 2" deep. I then covered the box with some All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper. The touch of Lost Lagoon Ribbon makes for a really pretty presentation. 

Then I filled up some cellophane bags with some favorite toppings and topped them off with another piece of All is Calm Specialty Designer Series Paper. The pretty frame stamp comes from the December Wonder stamp set and is a perfect spot to label the bags!

A must have to any sundae is fudge and/or caramel. I just filled some pretty mason jars and decorated them to match everything else. It literally only takes seconds to do!

It just so happened that ice cream cones fit perfectly in a Tag a Bag Gift Box. Just a little bit of ribbon helps to connect everything together! This would be an awesome gift for anyone who loves ice cream like I do!

All Is Calm Frames - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hey all! It is time for another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop, and we are moving right a long with our December boxes and Christmas projects. Today, I want to share with you a simple modern holiday home decor project that would make a great gift.

I love all of the white space on these frames. It creates for a really clean and modern look, especially when paired with the simple triangle trees. It is important to have a variety of sizes to create visual interest on the mantle or shelf.

The frames literally just take minutes to make! I cut out my images with a variety of Framelit Dies and my Big Shot. Then I layered some All Is Calm Washi Tape on a piece of card stock that would fit behind the image. I layered them on Silver Foil Sheets for a little bit of shine.

The trees were made with two triangles cut out of Coaster Board covered in All Is Calm Designer Series Paper. Just cut a notch in the bottom of one and the top of the other to put them together. Super easy and oh so cute!

Amazing Lotus Sneak Peek - Monday Montage

Hey everyone! Welcome to a Monday Montage Blog Hop! I don't have a big wow project to share with you, but rather a super simple card. However, this card features a couple of new stamp sets from the Occasions Catalog and Sale-A-Bration coming out in January. Want to see???

Isn't it super pretty?!?! That beautiful flower image is from the Sale-A-Bration set called Lotus Bloom. It is so easy to get that realistic look with this stamp, and it only requires one ink color! Here I used Blushing Bride for a nice soft look. The sentiment comes from the Occasions set called Painted Petals. I'm only giving you a little glimpse at this set, but I think it will quickly become a favorite!

You will notice I made this note card sized with the pretty Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes. I don't use these often but they are so pretty! I kept the embellishments simple with some ribbon and pearls to let those new images shine!

Stampin' Supplies:
  • Lotus Bloom and Painted Petals Stamp Sets (both available January 6th)
  • Blushing Bride, Night of Navy, and Sahara Sand
  • Whisper White Card Stock
  • Crumb Cake Note Cards & Envelopes
  • Blushing Bride Cotton Ribbon and Venetican Crochet Trim
  • Perals
  • Sewing Machine

Hello December Cards - Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop

Hi all! It is already time for another Artisan Design Team Blog Hop! Can you believe that Christmas is only a few weeks away??? If you are like me and don't have all of your Christmas projects done yet, you will love this month's Artisan Design Team projects! We will have tons of Christmas idea to share with you!

When I first seen the Hello December Project Life Card Kit, I immediately feel in love. I loved the colors (who would have thought to use yellow for Christmas!), pattens, and sentiments. Instead of making a December album, I decided to use it to make all of my Christmas cards.

I was able to make 22 different cards with the Hello December Project Life Card Kit! You will see that many of them have the same layout, but thanks to Project Life they are all unique. It only took one evening to make all of these cards. Could you imagine making over 20 different cards at once? It is not a challenge I would take on, but with this Project Life Card Kit it was super easy!

The only card stock that I added was the Crumb Cake Card Stock for the card bases. I also used the Hello December Project Life Accessory Pack with the fun wooden elements, sequins, special cards, and fun stickers. I also attached some twines and ribbons in the coordinating colors with staples for some texture and interest. I seriously love all of these cards, but I do have my favorites. Which cards are your favorites???
