Hi there and thanks for stopping by! The projects I’ll be sharing with you today were made using the stamp set “Lots of ‘Bots” (pg 82, #115293) from the new Stampin’ Up! Idea Book and Catalog 2009-2010.
I have created three projects to share with you today, each one made using the designer series paper Razzleberry Lemonaide (pg 162, #115675) and the new in-colors (pg 154) that correspond with the DSP. I’ve really enjoyed making these projects to share with you and I hope that you enjoy them as well.
Our first project is a simple bag made from a 12×12 sheet of paper. I scored each side at two inches to make it a long bag.
This size bag is perfect for several things, such as those specialty lotions at places such as Bath and Body Works. It is also the prefect size for a small baby shower gift.
To embellish the bag, I stamped the image on whisper white cardstock and colored him in using the neutral water color crayons (pg 154, #106746) with a blender pen (pg 192, #102845).
I added a little touch by cutting down a piece of rich razzleberry cardstock and punching it with the scallop edge punch (pg 187, #112091).
I closed the top of the box off with a scallop circle pierced through and tied off with a bit of 1/4 inch grosgrain ribbon in Apricot Appeal.
The second project I have to share with you today is a simple treat holder using the Pillow Box diecut (pg 199, #113466).
I wrapped it with 5/8 inch grosgrain ribbon in very vanilla. I made a small tag by punching the image on whisper white cardstock and matting it against the in-color, melon mambo. I then used the Tag Corner punch (pg 186, #107215) on the top corners to give it a tag look. I attached it to the ribbon.
The third project I made for you today is a cute gift card holder.
This card holder is made with two no. 3 coin envelopes, which can be purchased at any office supply store. I stamped the image of bolts across the Dusty Durango cardstock to create my own background. I also stamped them across one of the coin envelopes to blend it in better with the rest of the holder. for the image on top I used my Stampin’ Write Markers in both neutral (pg 154, 109126) and in-color (pg 155, #116329) and colored directly onto the stamp. I then used the going gray and bermuda bay ink pads with my blender pen to color him in. I also used the rich razzleberry ink pad to color in the balloon. Using the masking technique, I stamped the bolts and binary images in crushed curry over the whisper white and robot image. Still using the masking technique, I stamped “Happy Birthday , Human” in Dusty Durango. For a little bit of fun, I stamped another image of the bolts in Dusty Durango and cut it out, adding it to the image with a dimensional.
As an added treat, you can create a small note to place inside the holder.
I hope you’ve enjoyed your visit and the samples I’ve share with you using the “Lots of Bots” stamp set. Enjoy the rest of the tour!
