SU Pansy Punch

SU Tin of Cards/Bountiful Border NoteCard File Box #1

July 23, 2015

Hello friends!

As you are reading this…I am at my first day of  the SU Convention!! And, Can You Case It # 79 understands how busy this week is…and I knew it would be so I saved this to show to you this week!

CYCI79-300x253

I  recently had the awesome opportunity to demonstrate a project at our last Demonstrator Meeting up on the big screen- nervous but shows I may in the future get around to doing a video for you all! Thankfully, the crowd was so encouraging and Linda and Matt Heller did all the videography!

I made a Notecard File Box using the SU Tin of Cards and the SU Bountiful Border stamp sets. I did two different versions. The first one uses the File Tab Edgelits to make the dividers and the SU You’re So Sweet stamp set to adorn the front. The second one uses a floral punch, and DSP so it is a Tic-Tac-Toe at the Stamp Ink Paper Challenge #6.

SU Tin of Cards, You're So Sweet BOX

This one uses the Oval Punch and Scallop Oval Punch to make the divider labels.

As you can see, I chose a fresh, bright color palette of SU Pacific Point, Crushed Curry, Watermelon Wonder, and Cucumber Crush.

To make this simple little file box, follow these instructions:

Start with a 9 ½” x 9 ¾” piece of cardstock

On the 9 ¾” side, score at 4 ½” and 6 ½”

On the 9 ½” side, score at 2 in and 7 ½”

Cut in on 4 ½” and 6 ½” score lines up to the 2” score line on both sides. Trim off a little sliver piece from both sides of each flap to facilitate tight corners that fold in easily. Keep the box flush with a hard surface as you put it together.  I used Snail Adhesive to put the box together since it is not holding really heavy stuff. But, you can use tear and tape or FUSE adhesive to put the box together for extra hold.

I prefer the look of finished front corners so I wrapped the shorter front flaps over the taller back flaps. This also helps you see a line when you can cut the angles on the sides with your scissors from the front to the back. But if you do it with the taller flaps coming to the front, you will still be okay:) I talk from experience!

Decorate the front with DSP cut to 5 ¼” x 3”

Make a flower using the Pansy Punch and leaves using the Fun Flower Punch or
Use You’re So Sweet “Just For You” image.

The dividers in the upper photo are die cut with the File Tab Edgelits with the same width of 5 3/8″ but with staggering heights of 4″, 4 1/8″, 4 1/4″, and 4 3/8″. Alternate each divider from front to back with the two different file tab edglits.

The dividers in the the second box with the Pansy Flower are all cut to 4″ x 5 3/8″ and corner rounded on each side.

Wouldn’t you like to see the cards inside?

Well, buzz by the next few days to see them…cindy-bee-only.jpg

SU Flower Shop, Gorgeous Grunge, and some Oh, Goodie!

I am happy to be home after the SU Convention- it was fun but crowded! I loved hanging out with some great friends and learning how to better serve my wonderful stamping crew with my love of the quality Stampin’ Up product line. This card with XOXO added goes out to the awesome people I have had the opportunity to share with over this past year- whether it be a local stamping class or one my online followers who I may have passed on a little bit of inspiration. You all are getting  big virtual XOXOs  from me!

 I used two NEW stamp sets I received from SU at the convention- Oh, Goodie and Gorgeous Grunge. I also used a NEW favorite, Flower Shop. I got some inspiration from the colors at Dynamic Duos # 62.
