White Craft Pad vs. Staz On Opaque Pad

IMG_8031I know I’ve said this before, but I absolutely adore our Bakers Box Thinlit. The box is the perfect size for sweet treats. An added benefit is the little window die that allows a peak inside the box to see what is enclosed.

For video tutorials on how to construct the Bakers Box, go here  or here . Today’s Video tutorial below focuses on the difference between the two white pads I used – the White Craft Stampin’ Pad and the Staz On Opaque Pad.

EOS Lip Balm Curvy Keepsake Box for CYCI#97

eos curvy keepsake box 2The Inspiration Challenge for Can You Case It this week has brilliant red ornaments, gold accents, white snowflakes and fluffy white snow. I was inspired to stamp white snowflakes with StazOn Ink onto Window Sheets to make a Curvy Keepsake Box for a red EOS Lip Balm.


IMG_7238This is the “snow” I placed inside the box along with white, gold and silver sequins from the Metallics Sequin Assortment embellishments. The box is tied up with our GORGEOUS 5/8″ White Organza Ribbon and 1/8″ Gold Ribbon.

A Little Something Bakers Box for CYCI #90

trick or treat box with mark11933472_10206967014269242_5372582990894626687_nCan You Case It is having a Halloween Edition challenge this week. With candy corn, spider rings, Tangelo Twist cardstock and the Baker’s Box Thinlit on hand, I knew immediately what I would submit for the challenge.

The stamp set featured in this project is A Little Something. I stamped the greeting onto a window sheet to create the window of the box. And the cardstock was stamped with these ADORABLE spiders before it was scored and constructed into the box.

Video – Lighthearted Leaves Coloring Card Kit

coloring kit 1 with markastampin-up-lighthearted-leaves-500x500Coloring books for adults are the new latest craze in the craft industry. Parade magazine recently featured a front page article on them. Barnes & Noble had a HUGE collection in their front foyer today. Those coloring pages came to mind when I first laid eyes on Stampin’ Up!’s new Lighthearted Leaves stamp set.

My project and video today is a Coloring Card Kit made with Lighthearted Leaves that I presented at the World Card Making Day event this past weekend.

Wouldn’t these make a GREAT gift?

Please note the following:

  • While I used a plastic crayon box with the final card size being 2-1/2″ x 3-1/2″, another option for the box is Stampin’ Up!s Half Wide Stamp Case #127552. The final card size for that box would be 3″ x 4-1/2″.
  • The Real Red 3/8″ Satin Woven Ribbon #135840 is on the Clearance Rack for only $2.79! Just $2.79!!!
  • Photopolymer stamps like this one come sandwiched between two plastic sheets. The unprinted plastic sheet can be used as the window sheet.

A video tutorial for how to use the Envelope Punch Board can be found here. The instructions for the envelope board begin at 6:00 of the video.

I would love to help you order the supplies to make these adorable kits. Simply use the Shop Now button on the far right at the top. For assistance or to learn more about this project or my Stampin’ Up! business, I can be reached at amysinklings@gmail.com.
