Stampin Friends Black, White and Whatever You Want Hop


Febrrrrrruary is here.  The weekend brought some mighty cold temperatures to New England…. when the wind blew it reached -32!!!!  I mostly stayed in with the heat cranked up!  Besides there was card making to be done!

Whether you arrived from Barbara Welch’s Blog , or are starting with me, thank you and enjoy your tour through the hop!  Barbara is one of our guest hoppers this month.   I bet she has something awesome to share with us!

This month we have three amazing Guest Hoppers joining us.  Be sure to visit them as you travel through the hop.

Be sure to comment on each blog … there are prizes to be won by one lucky blog hopper!!  Last month’s winner received 15 packages in the mail!  Details are at the end of my blog.
 Well, here are my projects.  Everything I used is from Stampin’ Up!   

Basic Black, Very Vanilla and Blushing Bride are my colors.  I chose to use Timeless Elegance DSP (138444).  The paper had no pink in it, so I took my Blushing Bride Stampin’ Write Marker and quickly colored all the flowers.  It really did go quickly.

The fold on this card is the Peek-a-boo fold.  A very simple fold, with a stunning effect.  The DSP is 5-1/4″ x 4″, with a 1-1/2″ slit halfway down the long edge. I carefully folded the flaps back securing each with a dimensional.  I put a Very Vanilla layer under the DSP and then secured the DSP with snail adhesive.


I stamped “Thank You” from  the“Happy Happenings”  stamp set (139381) on Blushing Bride cardstock in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.   I punched it out using the 1-3/8″ circle punch.  I backed it with a black 1-1/2″ circle.

The inside sentiment is from the same stamp set.  I used the Botanical Builder Framelites Dies (140625) for the flowers and leaves.  I LOVE this die set!  The Big Shot Die Brush (140603) is a big help is getting the delicate pieces out of the dies.  The flowers are all popped up on Stampin’ Dimensionals.

The black leaves on the inside of the card is actually cut out of the Very Vanilla cardstock … letting the card base show through.  The large size pearls from our basic pearls makes a lovely center for the flowers.

These boxes are very roomy.  They are 2″ square.  The tall one probably will hold about 10 Lindt chocolate balls.  Some smooth Very Vanilla Satin ribbon  tie up the boxes.  I used a tutorial from Sam Donald (Pootles) for her Tall Slender 2, 4, 6, 8 box.  I decided to make two shorter boxes to go with the tall one to make a complete set.  The tallest box uses a piece of card stock 8-1/2 x 10-1/4, the middle size is 8-1/2 x 8-1/4, and the shortest is 8-1/2 x 7-1/4.  They go together very quickly.  I just added some of the die cuts for embellishing to match the card.  If you’d like to try this box, just do a “google” search for “Pootles Tall Slender Box” when you are done with the hop.

I hope you enjoyed my post …. now for prizes.  Please comment on each blog using #SFFebHop along with your comment.  (Please note … the prizes pictured are NOT what the winner will receive.)  The winner will receive a prize from each of the bloggers in this hop … that’s 15 prizes for ONE lucky winner!SF Feb hop prize
