Good morning and welcome to another edition of Cards and Creations by Lori McBride. My name is Lori McBride and I’m a Stampin’ Up Independent Demonstrator from Joshua, TX.
Today, I’d like to share with you this Baby Pull Toy Mini Gift Bag using that Baby Pull Toy Stamp Set and many other items from Stampin’ Up’s upcoming Annual Catalog.
Today’s 3D project also features our new 2021-2023 In Color, Pale Papaya in ink, cardstock, ribbon, rhinestones and Stampin’ Blend Markers.
It also features a very special product found in the very back of the Catalog under “Host Rewards.” And WHAT a reward it is!!! WOW!!!! The name of it is Party Patterns 12″x12″ Designer Series Papers. I’m sharing this with you now in a BIG way because I do not want anyone to overlook this paper pack. It is not ordinary for what Stampin’ Up normally provides to us.
Our ordinary pack 12″x12″ Designer Series Paper normally comes with 12 sheets of designer series paper, two sheets of each pattern, double sided. The Party Pattern Pack is 48 SHEETS of Designer Series paper, double sided with 4 SHEETS of EACH PATTERN!! That is massive!!! The fronts feature beautiful, colorful, fun, playful patterns, while the reverse side are AMAZING black and white patterns. Aside from maybe some Christmas DSP, seriously y’all – I think I’m set for the entire YEAR with this one pack of DSP!!!
For those who are new to Stampin’ Up you may be asking, “What is a Host Reward?” Host rewards are earned two ways – The first way is by Hosting a Party and reaching the sales goal of $150.00 or more. The second way of earning Host Rewards is simply by placing an order of $150.00 or more. Of course the more you spend the more Host Rewards you earn and the more free goodies you get!
This host reward will be available to all Customers on May 4th so please let me know if you’d like to book an online party with me to try and get y’all this incredible pack of Designer Series Paper.
Now that y’all have the information on how hosting a party and earning Host Rewards, let’s hop in to this project and how it’s made.
Party Pattern DSP 7 1/2″x7 1/2″ scored at 1 3/4″ and 6 1/2″ Rotate paper and score at 1 3/4″, 3 1/2″, 5 1/4″ and 7″
After scoring use your bone folder to burnish all score lines well.
On the side with only two score lines you’re going to want to fold the smallest end over and the other end under to where the pattern on the other side of the DSP is showing (black dots in photo above) This will be the top of your bag.
Add adhesive to that folded over piece and adhere in place.
Move your attention to the bottom of your bag. Your going to want to snip off the small rectangle at the score line. Add adhesive to the remaining length of the small rectangle side. Fold the thin rectangle to the other side of the bag to form your bag.
For the other squares, cut straight up the score line until you meet the other score line. Fold the bottom of the bag and add adhesive to the last square and seal.
I sort of just pinched the top to fold it in a little bit and then used a hole punch to be able to run the Pale Papaya and White Ribbon through tying a knot on each end.
On a scrap piece of Basic White Cardstock, stamp the elephant image from the Baby Pull Toy Stamp Set in Momento Black Ink. I hand colored her in the Light and Dark Gray Granite Stampin’ Blend and then used the Color Lifter Blend to lift color from the cheeks and added just a touch of the Dark Pale Papaya. I also colored the pull toy in Light and Dark Pale Papaya.
I used the Layering Circle Dies to die cut the elephant and a scrap of the new Pale Papaya Cardstock. I adhered the two together with Multipurpose Liquid Glue.
On a scrap of Basic White Cardstock I stamped the “It’s a Girl” sentiment from the Baby Pull Toy Stamp Set in Pale Papaya Ink and glued it to the circles with a Mini Glue Dot.
I used my Take Your Pick Tool and added a few of the new 2021-2023 In Color Rhinestones to the front.
Before anyone asks no, no, no, I’m still not going to be a grandma. I used to joke and say, “Maybe when hell freezes over” but then Texas faced the Snowmaggedon of 2021 and still no grandbabies. 😳 Starting to think it’s just never going to happen.
The gift bag is actually for a young man and his girlfriend in my husband’s hobby group that are expecting a baby girl.
Over the next several weeks, I will be sharing with you an astronomical amount of projects using the new In Colors with current product that you may already have in your craft stash and then converting projects over to the Annual Catalog products in June. I really do hope that you enjoy everything that I have planned for you in coming weeks.
Thank you so much for joining me today. I hope that you enjoyed this tutorial and will not only join me for another edition but will also decide to book a party with me.
