Stamping Sunday Blog Hop - Paper Players

| on

 Welcome to the Stamping Sunday Design Team Blog Hop.

I'm Denita, from Australia - you may be starting with me, or have hopped from Yvonne in The Netherlands?

It's the 3rd Sunday in the month of June, and our creations follow our theme; 'Paper Players'. A catchy theme which means we are playing with paper! 

Fancy that we are having a 'Designer Series Paper' Sale in June - Stock up and save 15% off select papers between June 1st to 30th, 2023. 

I am using 1 whole sheet of 12" x 12" Designer Series Paper for my creation, and I love that you get to see both sides of the pretty designs... there is a link below to make your very own.

My creation is an 'Origami Rectangle Box' - all-in-one and perfect for gifting, using the delightful 'Delightfully Eclectic 12" x 12" (30.5cm x 30.5cm) Designer Series Paper'.
You can find the step-by-step photo tutorial here
*I suggest using a template of copy paper (or similar) first, to practice the origami folds.

I just adore this box, and I have added a belly-band to mine to add some fun.
The origami rectangle box folds flat, so if you're up for some making and using up your collection of paper, this is a wonderful project to have a bunch of boxes for last minute gifts.

Belly-band measurements:
'Basic Black' cardstock: 1-1/2" x 10" (or 3.7cm x 25.5cm)
Embellish as desired, or CASE me...
(Mini tag is from the 'Cracker Treats Box Dies'. and stamped flowers from the 'Alphabest' stamp set.)

The belly-band slides away from the box.

The folds can slot into each other, and gently pull away to open the box...

5 Lindt Chocolate Balls fit into the middle of the box - for sizing purposes.

The origami rectangle box fully opened.
As you can see the floral pattern on the outside, and the geometric black & white pattern on the inside. 
It's a win, win!, and a lovely way to use paper (no matter what the size), have fun learning the art of origami and gift now or put aside for later.
Add a belly-band, or not. 
Tie with some coordinating ribbon, or keep it as be.

Below is the list of our fabulous Design Team, and you can click on the NEXT BLOG to visit Tami from the USA. You are going to love Tami's creation, and the rest of the Design Team.

See you next month. D x

Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop - Beach Life

| on

 One of my favourite things to do is to go the beach, and 'Beach Life' is this months theme for the Creation Station Design Team Blog Hop.

I live in Kiama NSW, and it's a beautiful Coastal town on the East Coast of Australia. We live by the beach, and we love where we live.

You may have hopped to me from Sara Nell Langland in the US, or have started with me?

Enjoy our 'Beach Life' creations as you hop along following the Design Team at the bottom of my post.

My 'Happy Birthday' card features the 'Waves of Inspiration' and 'Biggest Wish' stamp sets.
I inked the wave using 'Pool Party' and 'Balmy Blue', stamping directly to 'Basic White' cardstock.
I stamped the 'Birthday' sentiment, then the 'Happy' sentiment, and a few birds using 'Misty Moonlight' ink.

The card front is adhered to a layer of 'Misty Moonlight' cardstock, and I added a square knot using 'White Baker's Twine' - wrapping the ends of the twine to the back of the, and adhering the ends with 'Tear & Tape Adhesive'.

'Stampin' Dimensionals' were added to the back of the card front, removing the backing tape to adhere to a 'Misty Moonlight' card base.

I found a little box of Seashell Chocolates, and I made a gift tag using the 'Delightful Tags Dies'.
Stamping the seashell images from the 'Circle Sayings' stamp set, colouring with 'Stampin' Blends' and fussy cutting the images to complete the tag.

'Happy Birthday' sentiment stamped using 'Copper Clay' ink.
Tag: 'Petal Pink' & 'Crumb Cake' cardstock
Ribbon: Retired '1/8" (3.2mm) Cotton Ribbon 'Petal Pink' 
(& Misty Moonlight) found in the Specials tab under Clearance.

Artisan Design Team member Vicki, is up next, and I can't wait to see her super amazing creations....

Thankyou for paying me a visit, and I look forward to seeing you next month.
