Projects from my Virtual Stampin' Up! Party

Happy February Everyone!

I held my very first Virtual Stampin' Up! Facebook Party this past weekend and it was a blast! It started on Friday Night and ran off and on until Sunday at 4 pm. I posted tutorials and gave out prizes, we all shared cards and other projects we were working on and had lots of fun! I hope to do it again, but first I have to rest up from the first one!!

Here are two of the projects I posted on the weekend.

The first is a card using one of my favourite stamp sets from the Occasions catalogue - Going Global

And the second is a Nugget Book Favour that could be used for so many events! I used the Shine On Specialty Designer Series Paper for the cover as it is heavier than regular DSP or cardstock.

The directions and supply list for both projects are listed below. Hope you like them!

Happy Stamping...

Going Global!

1. Take the smallest piece of cut Whisper White and score 1/2" on all sides. Fold and burnish with bone folder.  Clip to the score line on the short sides.

2. Using Glue Dots or adhesive of your choice, place one on each of the small flaps. Fold to inside of edges to create box.

3. Take the larger piece of Whisper White and score 1/2" on all sides. Create box the same way as before.

4. Place on top of bottom box that holds the nuggets to make sure it fits easily.

5. Cut cover using Shine On Specialty DSP or cardstock of your choice (heavier is better), 6" x 3 1/4". Score at 3" and 3 5/8".

8. Put the Whisper White cover on the smaller box and add three strips of two-sided tape.

9. Remove paper covers of the tape and close the cover snugly against the side of the box. Burnish the top to secure the connection.

10. Punch out a piece of Silver Foil using the Decorative Label punch.

11. Using the 'for you' sentiment from the Birthday Blooms stamp set and Pacific Point ink, stamp on Whisper White scrap large enough to cut out with the Extra Large Oval punch.
