Nancy's Nifty Notes

Hand-Crafted Greeting Cards and Paper Gifts

Hamburger Box Birthday Goodies

When the Hamburger Box Die was on sale the other week I took the plunge and purchased it. This is the first project I’ve made with it:

IMG_2234

It’s not very large...the DSP on the lid measures 2.5” x 2.25”. It was just big enough to fit 4 small homemade chocolate chip cookies in a cellophane bag. But it’s a fun little treat to be able to give to a friend, co-worker or family member.

I used (retired) Early Espresso Coordinations card stock for the box, and a piece of Park Lane DSP to decorate the lid. Early Espresso Baker’s Twine was wrapped around a couple of times in each direction before being tied in a bow. The tag is a piece of Early Espresso CS punched with the Angled Tag Topper Punch. I stamped the Oh My Goodies image from the Oh My Goodies set twice: once in Old Olive and cut with the coordinating Deco Labels Framelit, and again in Calypso Coral, punched with the Large Oval punch and popped up with Dimensionals. Happy Birthday is from the And Many More set, stamped in Blackberry Bliss. The Word Window and Modern Label (for the Daffodil Delight layer) punches were used on it.

Join my team of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators for $99 and you choose $125 worth of products in your start-up kit AND you’ll receive a FREE pack of Designer Series Paper (DSP) each month for six months!

Did you know that most SU! demonstrators are “Hobby Demos,” meaning that they join in order to get a 20% discount on their crafting supplies? They never hold a class, publish a blog or sell to anyone else. The only commitment to being a demonstrator is to spend $300 per quarter - that’s $100 per month - although it’s really $93 per month since you get 20% off! If you decide it’s not for you, you can quit anytime and not owe SU! anything (though if you quit before six months are up you won’t get all the DSP).

Perks of being a demonstrator:
• 20% discount.
• Preorder period for every catalog that lets you order new products before regular customers can.
• Attending demonstrator-only SU! events like the annual Convention, local events, and online/live streaming events.
• Monthly team meetings just for members of my team, with exclusive projects and insider news.

Flower Patch Cut Edge Card

This is a card that my Stamp Club* members made in September:

IMG_0426

This card is CASE’d from Angela Pyjas, and she has a great video tutorial on how to make the cut-out edge. Once you have that mastered it’s a very easy, straightforward card.

One of the things I like about the photopolymer sets like Flower Patch used here is that you can do fun thing like make a sentiment curve. The one used on this card is perfectly straight, but by attaching one side to an acrylic block and arcing it before attaching the other side you can get this great curved effect.

Here’s what we used to make this card:
