Big Day at the Brumbaugh house today- oldest son is moving back to Orlando for a job, and we are doing the final walk-through for his condo closing today, and we are also picking up the keys to my daughter’s first apartment only about 10 minutes from her big brother. You know what that means? Yes, I will be moving them in for the next week! But before the chaos starts in a few hours, I wanted to share a baby card I played around with yesterday using the colors from ColourMe Challenge #72 this week.
I finally used my SU Zoo Babies stamp set – oh, it’s so cute! I paired it with the ever so useful SU Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set as well. A used a 1 3/8″circle punch to punch out my animals and bordered them with a 1 1/2″ circle framelit. I added a few little pennants cut from the Banner Framelits for the sentiment with a cute little heart punch from the Itty Bitty Accents trio of punches. My DSP is 2″ x 5″ bordered by 2 1/4″ x 5 1/4″ cardstock. This is an easy sketch to play with- try it with some other images- send me a photo of your work if you do…I love it when you do that!
To finish it off, I place a few candy dots in the challenge colors- Bermuda Bay, Pear Pizzazz, and White (neutral) on the So Saffron card base. I used a nice Bermuda Bay print from the SU Brights Collection Color Stack- I can’t wait to get the new color stacks- they are so trendy.
I wish I could have used all the animals in the set- just look at that Giraffe, Elephant, and Rhino! Of course, I can’t leave out the sweet little monkey and toucan:)
Real Red, Bermuda Bay, and Crumb Cake- a great color combo!
I had just used the cute SU Kraft Boxes (# 124106) at class this week with red felt spiral cut flowers for a Mother’s Day gift box. I decided I wanted to use the box and 1 1/4″ Burlap Ribbon as my Crumb Cake color for this challenge. We used classic red and black for our mothers but my mind went to my daughter who is graduating in one week from today with her Bachelor’s Degree in Nursing. I wanted to make a fresh and trendy gift box for her so I decided to use Bermuda Bay, Real Red, and the Polka Dotted Kaleidoscope DSP. I also used a new stamp set called @So Social that will be in the upcoming catalog available for order on June 2 It is soooooooo cute! It was given out as a Prize Patrol at the Catalog Premier last week. It has 21 different trendy hashtags and @ greetings. The Word Window and Modern Label Punches worked well to highlight the on trend sentiments. My daughter will be impressed with how hip it is!
Below is the gift box we made at class this week for Mother’s Day that inspired me to make another one for my daughter. We used the classic SU Modern Medley DSP. The SU Spiral Flower Bigz Die (# 129379) is AMAZING! It cuts out beautifully, and felt is so unbelievably easy to wind around making these beautiful roses in seconds! The Delicate Doily Sizzlet L Die (# 126999) is still available on the Retired List. We used SU Teeny Tiny Wishes and SU Label Love cut out with the Modern Label Punch on this one.
Two different looks using the same idea- something classic for an older lady and something trendy for the younger lady! Of course, it could go either way for either lady, too.
A little tip: to keep the burlap ribbon attached to the box without permanently adhering it, I used velcro dots so the box can be opened and even recycled again for another gift:)
Here is a sweet little treat box we made at Stamp Class this month using the Scallop Tag Punch. I was inspired by Leonie Schroder’s tutorial at Stamp-A-Latte. It was fun putting together the bunny butt and adding my touches but my favorite thing was the little gingham egg. I stamped the SU Six-Sided Sampler gingham hexagon in Daffodil Delight and used the small oval punch to punch out the egg! The treats were filled with the pretty jelly beans:)
I also used the scallop tag punch and the egg on the favors for my stamping girls this month.

It’s Friday Mashup time again…time seems to be flying by- it’s already almost St. Patty’s Day! Heidi has a challenge for us to use a sketch and a rainbow theme this week.
Create a project using the “Sketch”.
Create a project with “Rainbows or Rainbow Colors”.
Or Mash it up and create a project with the “Sketch and Rainbows or Rainbow Colors”.
Well, wasn’t it just grand that my favors for my wonderful stamping crew the last two days were Pots of Gold at the end of a rainbow! Of course, I did not mash it up with the fun sketch. Will you mash it up this week? Make sure to play along…The Friday Mashup # 151.
I used the SU Top Note Die to make the pot that I tucked some “green” tea into with a sentiment from SU Teeny Tiny Wishes. To make my rainbow, I simply stacked my Ovals of Rich Razzleberry, Tempting Turquoise, Gumball Green, Daffodil Delight, Only Orange (retired), and Real Red and cut each in half and adhered to the back of the Basic Black Top Note Pot of Gold. I just love making these little treats for my gals;)
To play along, you can:
1. Create a project using the above “Sketch.”
2. Create a project using “Window/Transparency Sheets. ”
3. Or Mash it Up and create a project “using the Sketch & Window Sheets.”
I really, really did try to Mash it up but we are in the process of closing our house tomorrow, packing and moving Monday, and I just finished 3 wonderful stamp classes with great gals the last two days- I could not give that up! I was a little overwhelmed so I used a transparency in one of our stamping projects this week to give a peek of the treat inside. I used the Envelope Punch Board to make the box. To accommodate 4 tea lights, I started with a 6 1/4 inch square and punched and scored each side two times- the first time at 2 5/8 inches and the second time at 3 5/8 inches. I folded on the score lines and ran it through my Big Shot with a circle die to cut out the opening where I placed the transparency sheet.
In class, we did not have a transparency sheet and had our bow in the middle of the front of the box- on this project, I had to move the bow up so the transparency showed. It looks really cute in person but the photo kind of makes the box with the big bow look like my son did when he was ten and had not grown into his ears yet….lol.
Hop on over to The Friday Mashup and check out what the Design Team has created this week and play along. We are eager to see what you design with the sketch and/or transparency sheet.
