Inking Everything Team Blog Hop

Hello there and welcome back for another Inking Everything Team Blog Hop.  I am so excited to have you here!  Tonight we are sharing creative packaging ideas from Stampin' Up!.  If I am your first stop- I hope you enjoy what I created!  Please use the back/next buttons at the bottom of this post to continue along the hop.  Inking Everything is a fabulous team with lots of beautiful projects to share so be sure to check them out!

The product I chose to feature is the absolutely amazing Hamburger Box die.  Not only is this die perfect for birthday party favors but it's also the perfect packaging for all of your Christmas stocking stuffer needs!   Who wouldn't love to receive a gift in such beautiful packaging?

I love this little box!  It is super cute and fun to create!  The Ornamental Pine stamp set adds the perfect touch!  I used the Star Border punch to create a fancy edge on the front of the box.  I even saved the stars that I punched out for a later time.  Someone will be getting tons of confetti in their Christmas card!

For the inside of this box- I stamped the sentiment from the Ornamental Pine set in Cherry Cobbler ink onto Very Vanilla card stock and then sponged the edges with Crumb Cake.  My favorite color combination for this holiday season!

        Hello there and welcome back for the bi-weekly Monday Montage blog hop.  You should have arrived from the fabulous Cathy Casey's blog. If not and I'm your first stop- Welcome!  Please be sure to use the next/back links to visit the other amazing ladies on this hop as well!  I know they have lots of beautiful projects to share with you!

My project today is a Christmas card created using the Lovely as a Tree stamp set.  I'm not quite sure how I've managed to be a demo for almost 3 years and never purchase that set but believe it or not- it's true!  The stamp I used below makes the perfect Christmas Tree!  So happy I finally bought Lovely as a Tree!

I thought about making this into a shaker card but then I discovered I'm out of Shaker Frames.  Guess I know what to order next!

A tiny retro camper?

Hello there!
Several days ago while browsing Pinterest- I came across the absolute most adorable Curvy Keepsake box EVER!  It looked like a tiny retro camper!  Seriously?  Who thinks of this stuff?  Thankfully the person who created it was kind enough to share a tutorial on how to make it.

Isn't it adorable?  The picture below is of the back window.

For this tiny camper- I kept my version pretty much the same.  The only exception was instead of using the Basic Black marker to create the center of the tires- I used a 1/8" Silver Brad.  This was so much fun to create and I'm looking forward to creating a few more!  Perhaps one with Strawberry Slush!

Thanks for stopping by!  Thanks to #jominacreations for the fabulous tutorial!
Happy Stamping!

Inking Everything's Happy Fall Blog Hop

     Hello there and welcome to the first Inking Everything team blog hop.  You may have just arrived from my fabulous upline Becky Robert's blog.  If not and I am your first stop on our hop- I hope you will take the time to browse the links below and visit each one of our designer's blogs.  We have each prepared a few beautiful projects for your viewing pleasure!

 My first project is a home decor piece created for the Fall season.  I used an old reclaimed barn wood frame, a sheet of Color me Autumn DSP and added some leaves from the Autumn Accents Bigz die.  Each leaf was embossed and then the edges were sponged using Crumb Cake ink.  A Thankful sentiment was cut from the Perfect Print Alphabet Bigz dies.

It's hard to see in the picture above but the little Autumn Wooden Accent is embossed with Gold embossing powder.  Here is a close up which shows a little better detail:

Please be sure to click the link below to see my second project which is featured on the Dani's Thoughtful Corner Facebook page.  

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you have enjoyed my project!
