January 2021 - Third Thursdays Blog Hop

Welcome once again to our Third Thursdays Blog Hop! We are a group of Stampin’ Up Demonstrators who love to share fun creative ideas. This month, our theme for the hop is A Sweet Sale. We are featuring products from either the new January - June 2021 Stampin’ Up!® Mini Catalog or the 2021 Sale-A-Bration Catalog.

I’ve listed all of the hoppers toward the end of the post, so make sure you stop by and see what everyone has to share today! 

All of the measurements for my project are listed below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this blog post. 
If you have visited me recently, its no secret that I’m absolutely smitten with the new Sweet Ice Cream stamp set and Ice Cream Cone Builder Punch from the Mini Catalog. I don’t think it’s left my desk since I received it 2 months ago! It’s such a fun and cheery bundle, especially paired with the coordinating Ice Cream Shop Designer Series Paper. 

Color Combo: 
What I really like about this card layout is that even though it has a lot of layers, it comes together pretty easily. It’s also great to use a couple different pattens of the DSP together. How cute is that pattern with the sprinkles? After making this card, I went ahead and put together 20 more for a swap I participated in. The punch makes it super-easy to cut those cute ice cream cones out in a flash. I had to add the little heart (from the Dog Builder Punch) to the top of the cone because it was the perfect touch with the sentiment. This card just makes me smile…and now I’m craving some ice cream! :)

Everyone is welcome!

*To check out the video for how this card was made, click here: Snailed It Fun Fold Facebook LiveI’ve also listed the measurements and the supply list below!
This Snail Mail Suite is DARLING! So many adorable products including the Snail Mail stamp set, Snail Dies, Snail Mail Designer Series Paper, Snail Mail Twine Combo Pack (white and pink) and the adorable Resin Heart Embellishments (white and red). The bright and happy colors instantly drew me to this bundle as they are my favorite colors to create with. 

  Color Combo: 
Talk about Happy Mail! Here is the finished card and I just love how it came out. All of the cute little elements work together so well and I especially love that the snail image can be cut from the Designer Series Paper using the Snail Dies. That makes it super easy to save some time on coloring. Yay for those timesaving creative shortcuts! 
This fun fold is easy to make and is a great way to showcase this fun Snail Mail Designer Series Paper. Once you have the cardstock and DSP adhered to the card base, simply add the smaller folded cardstock layering fold together as shown in the photo above. Super cute! 
Card Measurements and Details: 
  • Bermuda Bay Card Base: 5-1/2” x 6-1/2”, score on long side at 2-1/8” to create front fold
  • Real Red Cardstock (front panel): 1-7/8” x 5-1/4”
  • Snail Mail Designer Series Paper (heart pattern, front panel): 1-3/4” x 5-1/8” 
  • Real Red Cardstock (inside card panel): 4” x 5-1/4

  • Bermuda Bay Cardstock 6” x 3-1/2, score on long side at 3”
  • Basic White Cardstock (front panel): 2-3/4” x 3-1/8, embossed using Greenery Embossing Folder
  • Basic White Cardstock (inside panel): 2-3/4” x 3-1/8”, stamp sentiment and heart in Real Red Ink
  • Daffodil Delight Cardstock: scrap to die cut stitched square from Snail Dies, wrap baker’s twine around square twice
  • Real Red Cardstock: scrap to punch out one circle using 2” Circle Punch
  • Snail Mail Designer Series Paper (snail pattern): die cut snail image using Snail Dies
  • Bermuda Bay Cardstock: scrap to die cut one stitched envelope from Snail Dies, adhere sides and bottom of envelope, leaving top flap open
  • Basic White Cardstock: scrap to die cut one stitched “letter” from Snail Dies, stamp sentiment in Real Red ink, adhere inside envelope using Stampin’ Dimensional
  • Add Red Resin Heart Embellishment to envelope on snail image
  • Add three red rhinestones to card front
  • Tie a double bow using pink baker’s twine and add to card front using a Mini Glue Dot
Here’s a peek inside the card! I just love that “You’ve Got Mail” sentiment accented with the tiny heart. If you wanted a little more room to write a message to the recipient, you could always add a 4” x 5-1/4” piece of Basic White Cardstock on the back of the card for a handwritten note.
