Inking Everything Black Friday Blog Hop!

Hello my friends and welcome to the Inking Everything Black Friday Blog Hop! Where we will be showing you some sweet packaging ideas using packaging products from the Stampin' Up! Catalog.

For my packaging product I'm using Kraft Boxes.

This box holds 4 3x3 cards and 4 envelopes. I decorated the box using the under the tree specialty designer paper and gold embossed a Christmas tree from the festival of trees stamp set. I love how the tree came out. Cute right? I also used gold foil sheets for the bottom layer. I love the gold and cherry cobbler color combo. I also made a belly band with the gold foil sheets and attached a bow made with the gift box bow die out of gold fancy foil designer vellum. Can you tell I have a thing for gold?

Here is what the cards and envelopes look like that are inside box. Do you like?

For another project using the Kraft boxes please visit my Cali Stampin' Facebook Page and then come back here to finish the hop!

Up next is Susan Harle who will be featuring the French Fry Box! Go check out her awesome packaging product!

Also if you have not or even if you did please go back and show some love to the AWESOME Ti Kaheiki. She is showing off her sweet skills with the Gift Card Envelope & Trims Thinlits Die. Awesome Sauce!

Hello There

Hello my friends. Today I would like to share with you the card I made for convention to swap with the Inking Everything team.

This card was inspired by one of the cards in the new annual catalog. The catalog has lots of AMAZING ideas!
The hello there stamp is from the Hello There Hostess stamp set.

I embossed the "Hello there" in Calypso Coral Stampin' emboss powder and cut it out using the deco labels framelits dies. I loved the way it came out. The flower came from the Flower Shop stamp set which coordinates with the Pansy punch.

Of course I had to add a little bling to the flower. Speaking of bling I used the Fancy Gold ("I'm so fancy, you already know" You know that song pops up in your head when you read the word "Fancy" Come on I know I can't be the only one =D)designer vellum. LOVE the look that's why I had to make it!

Don't forget now till August 31 When you buy a Big Shot machine you can choose 1 of 5 free bundles. The deco labels along with the Oh my goodies stamp set is one of them.

Here are the bundles

Already have a big shot? No worries you can still get these bundles at a 15% discount. Purchase the big shot from me & choose the Oh my goodies bundle or just purchase the Oh my goodies bundle from me and I will send you the tutorial and a kit to make 2 of these cute treats. (No adhesive or ink)
