One Stamp at a Time Blog Hop - Projects for Our BFFs


Welcome to the One Stamp At a Time Blog Hop! I'm go glad to have you here at Create With Christy! This month, our theme is projects for our BFFs. My projects are a card and candy pillowbox for my BFF.

My BFF projects all feature the True Beauty Bundle (includes the stamp set & the Organic Beauty Dies) and Awash in Beauty Designer Series Paper (DSP). Both of these products are a part of the Awash in Beauty Suite in the Stampin' Up! 2022-2023 Annual Catalog. I absolutely love how the flowers and leaves stamp...the detail is amazing!


When I stamped the flowers on the deckled rectangle for my card, I envisioned making it look like a painting. I remembered the Painted Texture 3D Embossing Folder, and embossed it after stamping them. It's so hard to see it in any of my pictures. It really looks like a painting in person. I think the video above shows it better.


 I love the feminine feel of this card, and I just had to add some bling to it to finish it off. I used the 2021 - 2023 In Color Opal Rounds. I used 1 small & 2 large in the Polished Pink color. Of course, I just had to use that Polished Pink Open Weave Ribbon, too. I LOVE how Stampin' Up! coordinates their products so well, don't you?


Instead of stamping onto the inside of the card like I usually do, I decided to put a strip of DSP across the bottom of the inside Basic White layer instead. I really like the finished look.


If we give our BFF a card, we need to give them chocolates, don't we? This pouch works great for giving little nugget candy bars as a little gift. Of course, you can fill them up with other goodies, too.


I made my pillowbox with the Pretty Pillowbox Dies from the same annual catalog. I added DSP to the flap of the pillowbox, and you can see how I did it in the video above. I only needed a piece of cardstock, DSP, and ribbon to make this pouch, and I think it looks great with the card.
