Stampin’Up! Smitten Mittens

Have you ever had a card in your head and then when you went to make it just morphed into something else? Yeah, this is one of those cards!

Make sure to comment as our days to win are dwindling down in the #30daybloggingchallenge

Details:

So here is what I had in my head: a soft, almost baby color feel to a mitten card because that would be adorable right? But when I went to put these colors together they are really way more vibrant than I thought they would be and I totally loved it!

The card base is our Stampin’Up! Thick Whisper White Cardstock cut 5 1/2 x 8 1/2″. This card has a lot of “weight” to it and a nice sturdy base helps it hold up to all that stuff going on up front.

The middle layer is a 5 1/4 x 4″ So Saffron and the top layer is a 5 x 3 3/4″ Wisteria Wonder.

The Wisteria Wonder layer was run thru the Big Shot with the Dynamic Cable Embossing Folder. Remember that when you use one of our Dynamic Embossing Folders you need just one plate to create the impression.

The mittens were stamped in So Sffron on So Saffrom using Stampin’Up!’s Smitten Mitten stamp set. The Many Mittens Framelits made quick work of cropping out all the images.

The sweet heart pattern was also created with the Smitten Mitten Bundle. I love the look of stamping it in the same color as the cardstock

A little tie of our Whisper White Baker’s Twine keeps those mittens from getting lost

Stampin’Up! Smitten Mitten Mini Pizza Box

Yesterday I shared some super cute 3×3″ cards and today I want to share with you some great packaging for those cards!

Who doesn’t love the Stampin’Up! Mini Pizza Boxes?!

Details:

  • The Stampin’Up! Mini Pizza Boxes can hold all sorts of goodies, but were specifically designed to hold our 3×3″ notecards and matching envelopes.
  • Because I wanted the box to coordinate with my little cards I went with the same color theme and bundle.
  • The black and white buffalo plaid paper is from the Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper. It measures 3 1/4 x 3 1/4″.
  • I topped it with one of our Silver Foil Snowflakes. The snowflakes come in a package of 24, 12 silver and 12 gold. And I love that they are white on the back side and can be colored quickly with a marker or sponge.
  • How sweet is that mitten?! The image is from the Smitten Mittens stamp set, is stamped in Real Red and cropped out using the Many Mittens Framelits. Remember that when you purchase the stamp set and Framelits as a bundle you save 10%
  • The Silver and Red Tinsel Trim adds just the right amount of sparkle and I cannot get enough of our Green Springs found in the Stampin’Up! Holiday Catalog
