Cute Stamped Vellum boxes for Yankee Candles

How to make cute Vellum boxes for Yankee candles with Stampin' Up! products

StampinByHannah Cute Stamped Vellum boxes for Yankee Candles

 

I love to craft, I make more cards than anything else…. but every once in a while I like to try something 3D. I bought a pack of Yankee candles ages ago, and they’ve sat on my ‘inspiration’ shelf ever since…. until now!

Fun stamped vellum box using Painted Harvest from Stampin' Up!

My friend Sally made a really cute box wrapped in Vellum a few months ago… and took the idea as inspiration here. The vellum is stamped using one of the leave stamps from Painted Harvest. I LOVE the look of stamped vellum… it’s one of those techniques that looks tricky, but is actually super easy. Just remember that Vellum can take a little while to dry, give it some time, and then hit it with your heat gun!

Measurements:

Card stock; 8-1/2 x 7-1/2″ (22 x 18.5 cm)

Score on the long side at 2, 4, 6 and 8″ (5, 10, 15, and 20 cm)

Score on the short side at 2, 4-1/4, and 6-1/4″ (5, 10.5 and 15.5 cm)

Vellum; 8-1/2 x 2″ (22 x 4 cm)

Painted Harvest is carrying over into the new Spring Summer catalogue, but the bundle of the stamp set and the Leaf Punch is retiring on the 2nd January. Bundles are great, 1. because they are contain multiple products under one item number for easy ordering, but also because when you buy a bundle you save 10% (compared to if you bought the items separately). So, grab the Painted Harvest Bundle soon to save the fabulous 10%!

Inspire.Create.Challenge #006 | Painted Harvest Fancy Fold

Inspire.Create.Challenge How to make a Fancy Fold card using Painted Harvest from Stampin' Up!

StampinByHannah Inspire.Create.Challenge #006 Painted Harvest Fancy Fold

This week’s Inspire.Create.Challenge is a theme… Now, I don’t really know what I was doing when I set this challenge. I also managed to complete forget about it, so when I was planning on Saturday afternoon and I suddenly realised that I needed to make a Fancy Fold card for this week’s challenge even I panicked! But, I turned to an old friend, and I think it turned out ok!

Inspire.Create.Challenges Theme Challenge Fancy Fold Cards

I do LOVE a good fancy fold. I have a heap of Fancy Fold video tutorials over on my YouTube channel if you want to check it out.

Inspire.Create.Challenge Theme Challenge Fancy Fold Cards Double Diamond Fold using Painted Autumn from Stampin' Up!

This is a Double Diamond fold card. They are super simple to put together…. the trick is all in the scoring! I have made these a couple of times now, and you can find the video tutorial for it HERE. This version uses Crushed Curry card stock for the base, with layers of Early Espresso card stock and Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper.

To create the perfect layers I used the Layering Squares Framelits dies.

Measurements:

Card base – Crushed Curry Card Stock – 4 x 10″ (10 x 25 cm)

Score on the long side at; 2, 4, 6 and 8″ (5, 10, 15 and 20 cm)

Score on the short side at; 2″ (5 cm)

Rotate the card stock back so that the long side is at the top, and then make two marks along the horizontal score line at 3 and 7″ ( 7.5 and 17.5 cm)

Inspire.Create.Challenges Double Diamond Fold Card using Painted Autumn from Stampin' Up!

The biggest issue when it comes to sending Fancy Fold card is of course the envelope! Stampin’ Up! have this covered with the Envelope Punch Board… Fully coordinating, perfectly sized envelopes in flash!

Measurements:

Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper : 7-7/8 x 7-7/8″ (I tend to stick to imperial measurements with the Envelope Punch Board, just feels easier!)

Punch and Score using the Envelope Punch Board at 3-3/8″ and then follow the score lines to punch and score on each side.

Inspire.Create.Challenge How to make a Fancy Fold card using Painted Harvest from Stampin' Up!

Thanks so much for stopping by StampinByHannah today. I would LOVE to see your Fancy Fold creations! Why not add them to our gallery over at Inspire.Create.Challenges?

Inspire.Create.Challenges #004 | Your Kindness Means So Much…

Inspire Create Challenges Kindness Card Colour Combination Challenge using Painted Harvest from Stampin' Up!

I cannot believe it is already the 4th Inspire.Create.Challenge…. I hope that you are having as much fun with these challenges as I am!

I have a pretty simple card for you today, but the stamps on this one do ALL the talking!

Inspire Create Challenges Stampin' Up! Colour Combination using Island Indigo Soft Sky Flirty Flamingo and Whisper White

This colour combination was totally inspired by a swap group at a recent team training I attended. You might remember THIS card I made with the same colours! Actually this card has two sources of inspiration…. because I made it quite quickly after making THIS rainbow creation too…. Do you find that, when your making a few cards at once they seam to use the same stamp set, or have a similar layout? I certainly do! I actually made this card before our first challenge…. and it has been sat on my desk waiting for its moment for WEEKS!

Inspire Create Challenges Kindness Card Colour Combination Challenge using Painted Harvest from Stampin' Up!

Can you guess what Stamp set I have used here? It’s Painted Harvest! I know…. a Painted Harvest card without a sunflower?! This stamp set has the most amazing leaves (don’t tell, but I love the leaves more than the flower!!!) and although they are designed to be stamped one on top of the other (2-step stamping) I really like the look of the more detailed stamps on their own.

Here the leaves have been stamped around the card stock in Island Indigo and Soft Sky. With that cute little dot stamp added in Flirty Flamingo.

The sentiment is stamped in Basic Black… I almost went for Island Indigo, but just felt it would be lost and that a slight variation in colour would help it stand out.

Don’t forget to click over to the Inspire.Create.Challenges blog to see what the rest of the Design Team have created with this fun colour combination!

Happy Monday! I hope that you are well… it is that start of a fabulous new week here at StampinByHannah! I have a fantastic new Club coming tomorrow that I am SO excited about…. but first I have my Make It Monday video!

This week’s Make It Monday features the Thank You Gifts that I sent out to the ladies and gentlemen that shopped with me in September. Did you know that each month I make each customer a handmade card and a fun gift…. just as a special ‘Thanks’ for supporting me and my business. I sent my Thank You packs out at the start of the following month, usually about the second week of the month, just because I wait for my Code Club goodies to arrive from Stampin’ Up!

Make It Monday Pootles Inspired Scissor Charm Matchbooks using Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper from Stampin' Up!

These cute matchbooks use the Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper which is currently available on Sale as part of the Designer Series Paper Buy 3 Get 1 Free deal (ends 31st October!). I am LOVING this Designer Series Paper… it is a collection of autumn toned pretty patterns, some sunflowers, some leaf prints, but mostly just really cool generic autumnal prints…. oh and its watercoloured (Yum!).

The Painted Autumn Designer Series Paper coordinated with the Painted Harvest stamp set, and the leaf punch which are also featured on this project…

Click the Link to be taken to the video 🙂

Measurements –

Early Espresso Card Stock – 14.8 x 5 cm (5 3/4 x 2″)

Score on the long edge at; 6 and 13 cm (2 1/4 and 5″)

What’s inside… Scissor charms. Yes, that is charms for your scissors… the in shape of scissors! well… I was amused! These ones were found on eBay… just by searching ‘Scissor Charms’. I think they are really cute!

I hope they are already on your crafty scissors?!

Global Design Project #109 | Just For You

Global Design Project Just For You Watercolour Card using Merry Little Christmas from Stampin' Up!

I had a busy day in my craft room yesterday… but was really struggling to get creative. So, I turned to an old favourite – the Global Design Project – for some fabulous inspiration.

This week they are featuring a Colour Challenge…. and what a great combination they are working with!

The Old Olive and Black colour combination immediately pointed me at the lovely Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper from the Autumn Winter Catalogue… this festive paper features just three colours (Basic Black, Old Olive and Whisper White) and a range of Christmas/Winter-y images and more generic patterns. This paper is paired with the Merry Little Labels bundle in the catalogue and I have also carried that through onto this card.

Global Design Project Just For You Watercolour Card using Merry Little Christmas from Stampin' Up!

This is one of those cards with lots of layers of detail; from the Old Olive watercolour wash, to the punched Vellum Pretty label, the Loops of Gold Metallic Thread to the Gold Heat Embossed leaves from Painted Harvest!

Global Design Project Old Olive and Basic Black Christmas Card using Merry Little Labels and Painted Harvest from Stampin' Up!

I have another project this week with this colour combination…. check back on Friday for something extra special!
