Stampin' Up! Delightful Tag Topper Punch - SBTD August 2019 Blog Hop


Thanks for stopping past from Tricia's page - how cool were her teacher cards? 

This month we celebrate our 2nd Anniversary and to celebrate we are having a designers choice theme - so it's our pick! We can make what ever we want! So I decided to revisit one of my old favourites with  the Delightful tag topper punch to make a cute card and matching treat box.




Basic Supplies
· Card base – cut cardstock - 29.8 x 10.5 (A4 in 1/2 landscape)
· DSP front – cut 1 piece – 10.5 x 10.3cm 
· Whisper White inner – 13.5 x 10.3cm
· Circle for sentiment—whisper white
· Scallop Circle to mount on
· Ribbon for close

 

1. On both short ends of your base card measure 1 cm from the edge and make a dot—this is your placement spot for your punch edge.

2. Punch each of the short ends with the Delightful Tag Topper Punch. Just make sure that the card stock is centred before you punch. You will need to wiggle your card stock a little to feed it all the way to the back of the punch. The punch is designed to only take a 2" wide piece of card stock but with a little wiggle it fits.
3. Cut the little rectangles next to the delightful tag topper pieces away from the card stock. Score along one of the tag top ends
4. Fold card so that the circles of the Delightful tag topper overlap.,
5. Decorate as desired.
 Now for the cute little treat box.



Basic Box Supplies
· Box base – cut cardstock - 21 x 7.5cm
· Box sides – cut 2 pieces of cardstock – 10 x 5cm  (11.5 x 5 for taller top)
· Belly band – DSP or card – 21 x 4.5cm 

Instructions


1. Score at 5cm, 10cm, 15cm, 20cm. Turn & score at 2.5cm

2. Fold & flatten all score lines.
3. Cut at red lines for box bottom & cut away shaded area.
4. Adhere box sides using sticky strip on side tab.
5. Adhere box bottom using multipurpose glue or tear tape strips. 
6. Score both pieces at 5cm & 7.5 cm. See diagram.
7. Fold & flatten scores to form sides.
8. Punch short end of card with Tag Topper Punch.
9. Adhere 5cm end to front & back of box base.
10. Use twine, ribbon or clips to close top of box.
Decorate as desired.

Marvelous Birthday card for the Marvel Fan

Happy birthday to my beautiful young lady that also happens to be a massive Marvel fan!
I had already planned the cake but really needed a card - you know like last minute!



The circles were cut using alternating circles from out Circle Die collection, the special star on the front well that's a beauty - it's from a new set that's coming with the Christmas catalogue. Stitched stars I love them so much I even popped one on the inside.
The 'Wishing you' and 'Birthday' are sets from my stash. MARVELOUS was printed on my computer onto our Whisper White cardstock then cut with the Rectangle Stitched Dies.


Here is a little cake photo - shh it took both my mum and husband a bit to work out the silhouette but my Miss loved it!

Stampin' Up! Come Sail Away Suite, simple birthday card.


This was one of the first suites that caught my attention. I struggle making cards for my male colleagues, (yes we have some even though I'm a midwife - actually Brian won Midwife of the year this year!) family members and friends. I was happy to see a card that could be used especially for the blokes in my life.


Would you like to make one yourself or something similar - swap out the stamp, or the DSP and this card would look completely different. Photographs don't di it justice but there is a small Wink of Stella happening on the sails that helps give them a water colour washed look.

Cutting guide for this card.

Night of Navy card A4 cut in half and then fold this piece in half to make your card base.
DSP 14.8 x 5cm (you will get 12 pieces this size from one sheet of DSP)
Foil 9.7 x 6.5cm
Whisper White9.2 x 5.9cm
Bakers Twine 1 at 26.5 and one at 14cm

This card can be adapted to any DSP that has an image that fits in the space on the whisper white panel at the front. 
This is the sketch I created for my class ladies to go with it.



If you are like me and need things to match - here is the inside of my card and the envelope.
The white panel is 14 x 9.5cm - I actually regularly cut a whole pad of Whisper White up just for this purpose so I always have them ready.





My shopping list was huge with the new catalogue but this is what I needed for these cards.
