Just 2 more sleeps to go before the new Stampin’ Up! annual catty is released…and also before some lovely products retire.
Today I’m sharing a project that uses one of these retiring products: the Birthday Delivery Photopolymer Bundle.
In two days time my beautiful niece, who is about to turn 2, flies to Amsterdam with my brother and sister-in-law so I decided to make her a little toy to help with the long flight, a memory game.
The Birthday Delivery Photopolymer Bundle, as well as the and the co-ordinating Birthday Memories Designer Series Paper are ideal for this project because the dies cut out images from the paper as well as the stamp set.
This memory game was so super easy to make. I cut 12 3×3″ squares of whisper white and stuck these squares to the co-ordinating DSP. I chose the yellow pattern as the back pattern for the memory cards because it is important for this game to choose a pattern that is the same for each card.
The pairs of images on the cards were cut from the designer series paper with the dies (so there was no stamping or colouring required) and simply glued to the whisper white cardstock. I used the corner rounder punch to round the corners of the cards.
To finish off the project I popped all of the cards into a mini pizza box, topped it with some more of the yellow patterned DSP to match the memory card inside, as well as a die cut image from the DSP.
Finally, I tied it all up with some of the retiring crinkled seam binding ribbon in peekaboo peach.
I’m really enjoying participating in The Heart of Christmas, a weekly blog bringing you Handmade Christmas Inspiration from the Art With Heart Team.
Every Wednesday morning we post some Christmas card inspiration using products from the new 2017/2018 Stampin’ Up! Annual Catalogue, and very soon we’ll also be using products from the 2017 Holiday Catalogue (available for sale in September).
I love using multiple stamps sets on a card, as well as using non-Christmas sets for Christmas cards.
The little girl in the Birthday Delivery Stamp set is supposed to be holding a bunch of flowers or a present, but the teddy from the Santa’s Sleigh Set is also the perfect size for her to hold.
I could just picture her not wanting to go to bed on Christmas Eve, holding her teddy as she looks out the window, waiting for Santa to arrive.
Or standing under the mistletoe, waiting to be kissed.
I’ve stamped the little girl in crumb cake on whisper white card stock, then cut her out using the Birthday Friends Framelit. Her teddy was stamped with crumb cake on crumb cake card stock then cut out with the matching Santa’s Sleigh Framelit. The red bow was stamped in real red on real red card stock and cut out with the matching Santa’s Sleigh Framelit.
To assemble the card, I layered a mat of real red on a whisper white card, then topped with a crumb cake mat. I stamped the mistletoe stamp from the Merry Mistletoe stamp set (see image on left) in crumb cake onto the crumb cake mat.
I topped the mistletoe with a linen thread bow behind the red bow and topped with a rhinestone jewel. The little girl and her teddy are also mounted with Stampin’ Up! dimensionals and I cut out the sentiment with the modern window punch.
I hope you enjoyed stopped by today. You can go back to Claire’s blog to see the beautiful cards the rest of the team have made.
